What's you character name and how did you come up with it?
The name I picked for my character is Tildor. I didnt exactly come up with it, I just used a random name generator, selected Elven Names and found this one and liked it.
How old are you?
28 years old atm and Im thinking of staying there for the rest of my life. Just like Drexa.
Where do you live?
In the Netherlands, in a medium sized village called Ridderkerk which in turn is close to Rotterdam.
What MMO do you play at the moment?
A fascinating one called "Real Life". It involves alot of grinding but can be quite fun, the graphics are awesome too. Simply put, I dont have time for an MMO at this point in my life. Most probably I will start one again when im in a relationship and fail at both.
Any other games currently?
Die2nite, one of the best browsergames ever! Kinda involved in The Sims Medieval now, waiting for Darkspore and Diablo III.
What was your first computer game ever?
My first computer game ever was on the Atari 2600 which I played on my own black and white tv. Space invaders.
What was your first multiplayer online experience?
It was in 1999/2000, Cable internet was just coming into town and we got one of the first connections. Then I discovered Unreal Tournament, a First Person Shooter and I was hooked. Goodbye school results.
The real sad part is, I never got really good at it, despite playing like 28 hours a day.
What was your first MMO?
Actually, my first MMO I played was Asherons Call. Joost and I started this without knowing it was a MMO. We didnt have any clue what to do, so when we entered the game we encountered a "very friendly" high level player.
He told us that we needed to mine and cut wood in this game and that he give us gear.
So after a few hours of mining and chopping and giving ALL our resources to this "friendly player" we thought this game sucked and just quit.
What is your favorite snack while gaming?
It used to be nicotine, but i quit since a few months. So nowadays its either white grapes or a very healthy bag of bugles (nacho cheese crisps) and cheese spread.
When/How did you join Ginnunga?
This was around 2002, a group of friends and I decided to start playing an MMO (this time I knew what it was) named Lineage II. It was the most beautifull game experience to this date. A vast world, filled with players I could chat with, stunning graphics. I was sold.
So together with Cogency, Joost, Tlith and THC we were beasting it up in the newbie area Talking Island. There we met this handsome knight named Ernesto, who was looking for a sword. Experts as we were, we decided to show this lad the way to the sword.
It was a disaster!
This person pulled entire rooms filled with mobs just for his own selfish pleasure. We died so much it set Tlith in eternal rage, sent Joost crying and made THC quit.
Needles to say we never parted again and decided to join his clan, Ginnunga.
Tell us your most memorable mmo moment?
It must have been told a thousand times and I dont know if someone before me told the story, but here it is.
This also happened in Lineage II. We were a small clan and did not have alot of allies.
We had one meaningless castle and The Zerg decided it didnt belong to us. So the entire server signed up against us for the Siege and we had little allies at the moment.
It was 36 clans in the offense against a meagre 12 clans in defense.
I remember everyone assembling before the siege, Ernesto standing on the bridge in front of the castle shouting there would be noone that could pass this bridge.
Siege time began. A huge blob op people moved from the town to the castle. The server trembled under the huge strain.
By the time the blob arrived at our castle I had like 10 frames per second.
We decided to move out the castle and rush the camps that were set up by the offense.
The minute we stepped outside, everything went ballistic. It became a slideshow where i saw Cogency already standing at the camps, dropping people like flies, getting chainhealed by every healer in our alliance.
Ernesto still shouting like a madman on the bridge that "none shall pass" and the raidleaders on teamspeak shouting assist, assist, assist every second.
After about two minutes the fog cleared, frames were getting better again and we had slain about 1000 people. We did it, we had beaten the zerg and got to keep our castle.
We left Ernesto on the bridge and started celebrating.
Tell us something nobody in the guild knows about you.
Despite common belief, I am actually not gay.
