I figured it'd be time to make one of these. A little about about me:
I'm a 19 year old college student in the US, am French, and have been a long time member of the OCN community since 2012 after a school friend of mine introduced me to the network in November. They stopped playing, but I couldn't; if it weren't for the lovely community and friends I've made here, I'd probably stop playing alltogether.
I don't have a huge competitive past as I've been a referee for many years. I started out on a team Shawnn made many years ago (2013?) called Implosion. I can't recall if I ever actually competed in a tourney with Implosion, but I recall scrimming with them, and it was a good time.
From there I founded my own team, Eclipse. We had a fun tourney in RoTH, after which I got tired of leading, passed tbe team on to Hivlik, and joined RedstoneVEVO's team Chance. Chance was a blast, I met some fun people and has some awesome scrims/times.
I was also involved in the French community some, and I believe I joined Orpheus for a month or two. Same thing, had a good time, scrimmed some, met some fun folks. Then I believe I began reffing as of QoTW/KoTW and I've helped ref on and off ever since. The reason I'd ref was because I was in high school and didn't want to devote too much time to MC, so reffing was a nice way to stay in touch with the competitive scene.
I've lately been playing for the Rubber Ducks, specifically in the last tm, FMC. It's been a lot of fun, and I'd say we took our games seriously but really just enjoyed being in a call together in some really good matches versus some dope teams. I'd say we really went at FMC with the intent to go as far as possible, but never to compromise our values. Great team spirit. I think RD has also been a great way for me tontouch base again with the comp scene here and figure out what's hoppin' and what people are talking about. I've been really thrilled to meet some really friendly and active folks lately on teams like Ducks, Walrus, Triskel, Horizon, Doobers, and others.
I think I became a mod towards the end of this spring, and have been helping as official since Incrediwools (is that right? I'm awful with dates).
So that's about where I'm at. My shoe size is 44 and I may not answer opinion questions if I don't think I know you well enough; don't take offense, just trying to be respectful.
