So while i am more engaged in the LE community since the last few months and i often see the same names, i sometimes wonder what type of people i am interacting with.
So i wanted to make an introduction to myself and would be glad if some people may also introduce themselves. But i understand if people don’t wanna share a wholelot of personal information, so feel free to say as little or as much as you want
So i’ll do the start here.
My nickname comes from a series of other nicknames i had over the past few years in the internet. It all started with HeavyMetalDeathMan, which was for the time being a badass and cool nickname, because that’s what little boys doing stuff on the internet wanna be, badass
It slowly degraded into HeavyMetalMan and many people just called me Heavy and it stuck.
My main hobby is music. I’ll play E-Bass as my main instrument, but also can play drums and a bit of E-Guitar. Sadly this hobby is partialy on halt atm(concerts, festivals etc.). So i need to stick to making and listen to music at home.
I am mostly a Metal/Punk guy, but i do like and do respect all forms of music, if it’s made with passion and not just with $$$ in the eyes.
Besides that of course my second big hobby is Video Games. I mainly play and love ARPG’s and MOBA’s.
My very first “big” video game that i sunk hundreds of hours in was Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. Which is and was till this day my most “joyful” online gaming experience.(probably a bit biased because it was my “first love” regarding video games)
My second big video game that i sunk thousands of hours in was Marvel Heroes (later known as Marvel Heroes Omega). This also was the first video game were is really got involved in some community work. Was doing whole lot of stuff on the forum and extensively gave feedback, especially on their “public test server”, which always released a few weeks before bigger patches.
That was one of the very few games were i saw that devs interacted meaningful with the community and their Communtiy Manager was one of the most passionate guys i ever met(over the internet). His name was Doomsaw and he reminds me alot of @Sarno and i mean that as a big compliement
(I am actually not sure if Sarno is “community manger” or not, but at least he is very very active in the forum^^)
Besides that i played alot of Grim Dawn and Path of Exile.
Then the last big thing i played was Paragon (Epic’s 3rd Person moba), which was the first game i really played competitively. Even though “offical ranked” was never in the game, there were several fan made sites which had access to server data by epic, to calculate an “ELO”.
Depending on the site and ELO algorithm i was Diamond, within the top 1-1,5% of all people.
Well, then Paragon got closed and now i am in big heart ache and waiting for some of the spiritual successors of Paragon to rise from it’s ashes (mainly Ethereal: Clash of Souls)
Also one of the games im eager to wait for and really hoping it succeeds is Amazon’s New World MMO. But i really watch this one cautiously and downshifted the hype 2 gears.
IRL i have 2 completed vocational trainings as an car mechanic(that was my first one) and as an IT specialist for systemintergration/hardware.
Since 5 years already I am working as an IT Field Service Engineer. I mainly doing warranty repairs for several Manufacturer(E.g. Dell, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Lexmark, HP, Oki etc.). My main qualifications are Clients(Desktop, Notebooks) and Printers. But i also have basic and advanced enterprise qualifications (Network and Servers).
