Why hello members of CotP!
I just recently got approved by Mr. Grim, and figured I would shoot a little intro here. I enjoy talking so if this ends up being to long to read please post it in the replies.
For starters I currently reside in Eastern North Carolina. I recently finished up my schooling at the University of North Carolina @ Wilmington, studying middle-grade Education. I enjoyed it thouroghly attending a small public university on the coast is an amazing adventure even if it was just for the girls that would wear swimsuits to class. I went on to teach for a couple years but found out that it was not all it was cracked out to be, like many other teachers that burn out shortly after they start. So i went out to find a summer job in between my teaching jobs. Found a job at a marketing corporation and I have been very successful working there for the past 2 years. I recently got laid off there and now am part of the many unemployed. :-( no worries I have plenty set up for me in the new year of 2013.
So a little more on stuff that you all may care about, Been a gamer since i could hold a controller started out with the old SNES and strategy and RPGs. Then moved over the PS1 and played it casually around my HS sports and GF. Xbox launched and I fell in love with a little game called Halo. Put alot of time into that game and all renditions of it albeit pc or later on to the 360, did some competitive gaming as well in MLG when H2 got big, had to stop when college came around and i started playing college sports. After a career ending injury I was held up and started my gaming again, with WoW. This was a big switch for me to PC gaming, I mean keybinding and moving with a mouse what is that?! (still trying master it even now) After WoW ate my soul for 2 years i started playing Halo: Reach. Once that got old quickly I started in on MTGO where i started competing in tournaments and such did very well even after never playing paper magic from 2nd editon up to ISD. Then Halo 4 came out I maxed that out and am now just waiting until February when they actually come out with the ranked stuff. So here I am now, playing SWTOR on Shadowlands trying to get to End Game conent, and maybe even some Ranked PvP, which I enjoyed thouroghly in WoW.
I am a consistent gamer with a very open mind and open for criticisims to perfect my game, But am also very research oriented and will probably try several different methods specs and alterations until i find something that fits my play style, as opposed to just going with whats in the Metagame at that time. I am a progressive end game player, that understands wipes happen and lots of frustration sets in, but that is all part of building a team and family, and the reward is so much more rewarding. I will never forget downing the Lich King in WoW we were one of the last guilds to do it on the server, but still we were just as excited after wiping on him every single time we got there due to bad communication and raid leader getting upset and placing blame. But hey we finally did it, after that I retired b/c i did not see cata gaining my intersts. So If i am chosen to advance with you all here and I get the help i may need to gear up properly I would love to share those experiences with you.
And if any of you actually read this whole thing +1 to you. I look forward to hearing from you in the chat or vent/mumble w/e the group uses here. Best of luck to all and May the force be with you!
