Elegy - Team Leader
I’ve been gaming as long as I can remember. I started with simple Nintendo and DOS games, and have moved on through to the modern graphical wonders that are with us Today. I take every hobby extremely serious, and it was only a matter of time before I exchanged casual gaming for more challenging experiences. Every game I picked up I played with a competitive attitude, and prided myself on being known among pubbing communities. Day of Defeat: Source came naturally to me, and was the first game I played league in. Looking back now, entering competitive gaming was an extremely scary leap. League gaming meant no more deniability for bad games, and all my achievements (or lack their of) would be public information. League play turned out to be the best experience of my gaming life. My first season I started my own team (Passive Aggressor), and we claimed an Intermediate division championship in CAL. My second season was not as extraordinary as I had hoped (still more wins than losses), but reflected the difficulties of Invite level of competition, and a non-conducive real life schedule. Playing competitive means playing people that are better than you. If you want to be the best you have to play the best. Rolling pubs isn’t enough to demonstrate skill, many people can do that. They say “iron sharpens iron,” but as i see it a diamond works quicker, so I’ve determined to put the best players beside me as well as in front of me. Over the years I’ve taken breaks from gaming, and resurfaced here and there, but this time I’ve come back with more resolve than ever. I’ve never been more excited to represent a sponsor (I’ve played for many), and cannot wait to make a mark in BF3, and perhaps a mark in the reawakening of e-sports.
My first FPS was CoD4. I mostly pubbed and never went fully into the competitive scene. CS and other older games never appealed to me much; starting with CoD4 makes you accustomed to things like sprint and ADS, which a lot of older games lack. After CoD4 I started playing the atrocity that is MW2. After that I played CoD:BO which was mildly fun, fixing MW2 problems while introducing its own ones... BC2 came next and was the first time I played a BF game. I found it to be quite enjoyable, even if the netcode was piss poor.

It all really started when i went to a LAN Center down the street in Year 2000. I have been playing counterstrike since it was on a disk before STEAM IDs. We started a scrim team and started to play extremely competitive. counterstrike is what made me so competitive today. It was a well balanced and straight forward game, Frag 6 guys win, Plant a bomb win, Also was the same way for day of defeat 1.3 It was never as good as counterstrike. Than the HL2 engine came out and started scriming counterstrike:source(CS:S)/day of defeat:source(DOD:S) more CS:S than DOD:S. A game that I always thought was built for League was Call of Duty 4 scriming on that was so much more different than say BF3/CS:S/DOD:S cant place why but it just was to me. Played all of the BattleField series games but league for it hasnt been as good as it is currently for BattleField 3. Hopefully BattleField 3 will be the next big League game like CS/DOD:S/CS:S/COD4 was.
I suppose my start in competitive gaming camewhen I got Goldeneye for my birthday. I spent countless hours with theneighborhood kids on 007, and later on Perfect Dark. The first time I tried CSthough, everything changed. I headshotted a terrorist in the vents oncs_assault and never looked back. I played CS since 1.1 retail, co-founded myfirst team in 1.5, and after a brief break due to joining the Air Force,reached cal Main in 1.6. I switched to CS:source soon after it came out, and eventuallymade cal Invite as a starter on Distinct 5. After playing maps like Nuke 20,000times though, I was ready for a change of scenery. DOD:s turned out to be aperfect fit. Soon after I started I sniped a player named Grimm on Donner somany times that he invited me to play on his team. I obliged, and had the mostfun on any team to date. I took a few years off to finish college, but whenGrimm (now Elegy) called me and told me about this sweet Battlefield game, Ifigured it was time to put on the headphones again.
My gaming career started at 9 years old. My older brother wouldn't let me play on the computer ever, so I would have to wake up at 3am every day just to get my Counter-Strike fix. I was on a few competitive teams before the age of 13, but none of them amounted to anything. After years of bouncing around between FPS's and Everquest I finally found my niche in the Battlefield series.
From 1942 to 2142 and vietnam to BC2 I've played them all. IMO this is the greatest FPS franchise in gaming. It took me until BF3 to get on a legitimate competitive team.. Well, semi legitimate. Battlefieldo eSports was wraught with bad players and even an admitted hacker. Once we found some real talent, we changed the name to SaGa eSports and started making that name heard. CGL 4v4 Season 1 Champions. TWL 4v4 Season 1 Finalists.
Once our dominance of 4v4 seemed probable, it was our job to make it inevitable. After taking over leadership of SaGa, I made it my first order for us to merge with our long time 4's rivals ADK-pA. Doing so united two powerhouse teams under one name. That is fLatline.
