Gaming History:
I started playing videogames around the age of 6, enjoying my many hours of Doom, Redneck Rampage or Carmageddon on the PC. Way too violent games for that age, but hey, I loved them, and so my parents couldn’t stop me from playing them. A little while later a friend of IntenZz got a Nintendo 64, but he didn’t like it. We bought it from him for a small prize. That’s when I met The Legend of Zelda, which is still one of my favorite games ever. I also remember playing a LOT of Super Smash Brothers. It was amazing to play with friends and we had a lot of fun with it, but eventually I was getting bored with it. That’s when I decided to rent a Playstation 2 which was the next level of gaming for me. I really enjoyed it and was planning on buying it when my dad came in and told me about a console developed by Microsoft, the Xbox. He said that it had better graphics and that it was a really good console, so I decided to buy the Xbox. We had a lot of fun with Dead or Alive 3, but when I started playing Halo I totally forgot Dead or Alive. I enjoyed playing it on System Link with friends. I also bought the Gamecube, because I wanted to play Super Smash Brothers Melee, i played this so many times with my friends, every round was different and that made it fun, there were so many surprises. After a while the sequel of Halo got out and that’s when I heard of Xbox Connect. With it, you could play with everyone from around the world without paying. I didn’t have a credit card back then, so I couldn’t play on the Xbox’ online service, Xbox Live.

When the Xbox 360 arrived in the stores it was only natural that I had to get it. I pre-ordered it, but there were too few, so I had to look for it. I looked on the internet and bought one from someone living nearby. It was the Core edition, which didn’t include a Hard Disc. It was only a few days later when I was called with the words that I could pick up my Premium edition. This made me the owner of 2 360’s, which was pretty useless for 1 guy. Fortunately there were SunriZe and the non-gamer IntenZz who decided to give it a go and also the option to get on Live with a prepaid card. Me and IntenZz bought Call of Duty 2 and played a lot with a friend of IntenZz called EmergedFlame. We decided to create a clan, called Dutch Legion. After a while we found another great guy to play with called Justice which led to the completion of a team. My other brother got to play Perfect Dark Zero for our clan, and we also got a good team on that game. Things changed and people left or were kicked; we also changed the clanname to eVolution. We continued to play CoD2, but without a solid 4th guy, because EmergedFlame stopped playing Call of Duty 2. We also met this clan called aVIP on CoD2, who became our rivals. We haven’t played a match, because of the different gametypes we both play, but it was obvious that aVIP and eVo were the top of the Netherlands.

I entered a national tournament hosted by Xtoernooien and became 1st out of 60 players or so, I was really happy and decided to enter their next tournament as well. This was a lot harder, because it was international, so I knew that some badass players would enter. At the end I managed to get the 4th place, with a Finnish guy coming in first. We now know that guy as qG Pena K I N G, a valuable player to our team. A little while after that I entered a tournament hosted by Gamez.nl and sponsored by Activision. Me and 11 other Dutch players won and we got to play Call of Duty 3 in Brussels, a month before the release. It was a really fun day.

When CoD2 was ending both eVo and aVIP broke up, 2 members of aVIP decided to create a new clan called AK47. Me and IntenZz joined an American clan called D2a for a while, but we knew we had to join AK47. So we did and I became site admin, while IntenZz was in the Call of Duty 3 team, I personally didn’t like CoD3 so I decided to stick to administrating until Call of Duty 4 would be launched. Due to our sponsors we later renamed AK47 to Quality Gaming and added more teams to our clan. Due some fights after XL4 me, IntenZz and Deadbringr decided to join iDentity.

Together with iDentity we joined Team Dignitas. Where i got replaced in the LAN team and basiclly got used.
interesting, i knew a couple of aVip members when i was playing CoD2, but i never really got into clan play aside from filling in during matches. i'm surprised i didn't see you, although i suppose it makes sense considering time zones.
in any case, welcome.

Wow, you're quite the accomplished gamer and you have all the latest consoles. Needless to say, I'm intimidated and quite jealous. Smile Have a good time around these parts, I'll catch you later.

Oh and those consoles are nothing to be jealous of, i'd much rather have a site like this. I have my own community for European gamers but the only stuff i got with Xbox Live are a leaderboard and gamercard integration. So, don't be jealous :P.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome, site is looking amazing already.
