    I have read the sticky, AUP and FAQ. I'm interested in participating in a mature gaming community and agree with the TOG vision.

    My introduction was blunt and hasty. So...

    I am at the minimum age limit (turned 25 last month). I'm a big aviation and military enthusiast. I used to work in civil aviation but stopped flying last year. I have an application with the airforce and armored but they are taking their sweet time. Now I got nothing but time on my hands! I dont fit in to the category of married with children and squeezing in occasional game time after work. But then again, I am also in the generation who can harken back to the old days of atari, commodore 16-64, nintendo-sega and brand spanking new PC-386! I was thrilled when i spent my live savings to upgrade to my 486DX!!! The power... I am guilty of collecting ROMS and emulators; Trying to hang on to those old school thrills. Me and my friends also collect old arcade machines. Trent and gaming goes waaay back. I thought i was the only one he he.

    I also feel my age when im taking orders from younger players. Though reflexed and skilled, they have no idea how to form a decent battle plan, how to support eachother, and most of all they dont act very civil or honorable. In TOG's scope of games, teamwork and strategy is key (especially ww2online/planetside) and I find myself most at home with the mature minded group who dont mind patiently thinking something through or taking the slower support roles. I've joined many outfits/clans and left every one of them. They lack maturity, leadership and cohesion. Although its only a game and light hearted entertainment, the game becomes annoying and shallow when nobody wants to work together, when your boss acts like a spoilt brat, or when your "team mate" repeatedly shoots you in the back for a cheap laugh (sigh, grow up guys!). Basically they were just a rabble of teens having a cheap laugh while calling themselves the "uberl33tPWNj00" gang or whatever.. Im definitely not part of that generation thank god.

    The reason i was referred to TOG by a player in Planetside was because I could take orders and had an interest in team play. Instead of dishing out insults and taunts, I followed the plan and acted like a good bloke. Gaming is a guilty little hobby of mine. I'm not hardcore 24/7, but when I do play I like to do a good job and make friends at the same time.

    My main game is planetside. I can be on anytime between 18:00 -> 23:00 CST (UTC+9:30). I seasonally play ww2online. Also play SWG. There's so many fricken servers on SWG its a joke so i doubt our paths will cross. I am on Bria.


    Hope to see you on the gamefield sometime!

    Ok, when one of the admins gets their sorry carcase in, you'll be granted full membership.

    Scoot on down to the PS forum and give Basie a shout.

    Welcome Trent! I saw you for a moment this morning in PS. Probably catch you for a moment tonight. The fun of playing on the other side of the world.

    As for SWG. I'm sure I've kicked around your home on TestCenter Bria a couple of times.
