New Member: G_T_G Name: Michael G Age: 20 Gamertag/PSN (please state whether its PS or XBOX): GATES_THE_GREAT (PSN) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org AIM: datsgmike Time Zone: CST General Availability: Basically anytime I can get notice ahead of time. I am available most nights and afternoons. Favorite Teams: Bears, Bulls, Cubs, Blackhawks How did you hear about Tradition Football:I know Emmdot from a Madden league we were both in. 1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I played 1 Madden 10 online franchise. It is the UFL and I have been with them through a few seasons. I am joining a few NCAA Dynasties because I enjoy the game so much. To name a few, Glory Road, Best Coast, and TNL. 2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? My first game I have ever played was Yoshi's Island on SNES. I think that was around 95 or 96? I have been playing games ever since. I have been gaming online with computers ever since around 99 and have been playing online console games ever since 2006. 3. What type of player would you say you are? I play for fun first and foremost, but I do play to win. I don't abuse the rules or cheese, no matter if I am losing or not. I am not a sore loser at all, I actually find it humorous when I lose. I try to learn from my mistakes. I am very dedicated and typically game every single day. 4. Our community consists of a more mature bunch and the average age is somewhere around 28-30 years old. How do you feel about any differences or similarities between our population and your age? I actually prefer playing with a more mature audience. It improves the gaming experience, in my opinion, due to the great showing of sportsmanship and commitment. I am very mature for my age and I think I will fight in perfectly with this kind of crowd. 5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I have and I agree with all the rules and guidelines. I have no questions or concerns whatsoever. I am excited about the rules put in place. 6. Please tell us a little about yourself. We want to get to know you and hope that you will be around for a long time. Well, I am a 20 year old college student. I live in the Chicago suburbs and I am attending a community college. I spent my freshmen year at Murray State University in KY. I am dedicated to my studies and am currently not employed at a workplace (which gives me enough free time to be a dedicated TF member). I love sports and always have. They are by far my most favorite genre of games. 7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community? Very, very active. Usually, once I become a part of a gaming community, I am committed for as long as it lasts. I have a pretty open schedule and that allows me to spend lots of my own free time doing things I enjoy, such as gaming and all that goes with that. 8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF? I hope to meet lots of cool people and to get some great games in. Its not everyday that you can come across something like the TF, and I hope to make the most of what it has to offer. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and having fun. 9. Situation: You are participating in a league game when your opponent clearly breaks the league or site rules. What do you do? How do you handle the situation? I would bring it to my opponent's attention and clearly state what rule has been violated. If they respond and recognize the mistake, then I would be cool with continuing on without further addressing of the issue. If, however, they deny breaking the rule or continue to do it, I would finish the game, then file a complaint against the owner with the commissioner. 10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of? I am very interested in joining the NCAA dynasties because I have been enjoying the game so much. I love everything from the recruiting to the competitiveness of the user vs user games. I might also be interested in a madden 11 league too, depending on if the game is up to snuff.
