My names Matt, my in game names are usually Reidic or Reidium, and I just recently started following Wes on twitch a few weeks ago when I started playing the archeage alpha. I'm 29, so a little older of a gamer now, and generally am looking for mature, decent human beings to play new games with. My RL gaming friends have dwindled to about 4 or 5, so not really enough to accomplish much in today's MMOs, so hoping to find the right fit here with you guys. I also am back in school, I decided to return and finish out my bachelors in communication, so I bounce between Michigan (home) in the summer, and Hawaii (school) in the fall and winter months, so my time zones swap around a little.
I also hope to start my own stream at some point in the future, but waiting on some financials to fall into place so I can build a new rig. Currently I play on a Asus G53 gaming laptop, have to run archeage on low settings, but it will work for now; which brings me to the fun part, games.
Past Game Experience:
Ultima Online - My first love,and first MMO. I played this for a really long time. The first year or two on the paid servers, then bouncing around free player run servers.
World of Warcraft (was pretty hardcore, raiding almost every night, starting in vanilla. We made it through Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, and parts of Naxxarras (sp?) the original gangster version. Then I quit the game, and intermittently came back on and off for various expansions, but never really got into it as heavy as then.
Age of Conan - It was not the greatest of games, played it for a few months
Warhammer Online - Played this for a few months as well, but they had a lot of server issues, particularly with their world pvp stuff.
Star Wars The Old Republic - leveled to max, didnt really accomplish much past that
EVE - Always was really interested in it, but didnt really get into a big enough outfit to make the most of it.
Current Games and interests:
Archeage - Really excited about archeage, I really like the naval aspects. I hope to someday run a successful trade ship and hopefully my very own fishing boat. I was leveling a character in the east, go to about 45ish, but wasnt really enjoying the community or guild I was in over there (the maturity level and general attitudes was pretty rough). Decided to give west a try and hopefully group up eventually with you guys, so I started an Argent this past Saturday, and am currently around 32.
League of Legends - I play league pretty regularly most of the time, though archeage has been dominating my play time the most lately. League is a game i never really quit, I always come back to it. I think thats what makes it such a great game, is the ability to easily go back forth with it.
Minecraft - Love minecraft, every 6 months or so me and my friends usually start a small server and play for a few months to see all the new additions and changes, building some pretty large buildings, then we go back to whatever other games we were playing. Its always enjoyable though.
Star Citizen - I just now heard about star citizen from Wes's stream, and the more I look into it the more I'm interested. I always dream of being a semi truck driver in space haha, so hopefully you guys will need some cargo moved.
I think that's it about me. My character on the west side is Reidic, feel free to find me in game!
