New Member: Merih Name: Merih (I'd be happy to let you know the origin if you PM me) Age: 20 XBOX Gamertag: Ambasa10 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org AIM: Don't have one, can get one if the need arises Time Zone: Eastern General Availability: Before 11AM, after 7:30 PM Favorite Teams: Ohio State Buckeyes How did you hear about Tradition Football: Well, I followed one of Hellisan's Dynasty Reports pretty religiously on another site. He was always talking about Tradition Football and the "Good Old Days". Once he was done updating that Report, I followed over here and have been lurking reading the weekly dynasty updates and scores and recruiting battles. Finally decided that this was my best chance at finding a true SIM league to play in. 1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I've only played online dynasties (NCAA). However, I am also very interested in Madden and FIFA leagues. I also own NBA 2K10, but don't know exactly how those leagues are run. My online dynasties are usually hosted through www.buckeyeplanet.com , which is a fantastic sports website. Look into it if you have a chance! 2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? I've been playing games since I was about 5 or 6; only after my dad felt I was old enough to handle them. Started of with the first SEGA genesis (Sonic 2, favorite nostalgic game), then went through all iterations of it (including the Genesis 3, rather pointless). I then went to the Dreamcast, XBOX, and now XBOX 360. I've been playing online since NCAA 2006. I don't like playing ranked matches, not enough realism for me. I mostly now play online and offline dynasty mode, with FIFA also. 3. What type of player would you say you are? Sim only. Enough said. Rather lose by 30 and keep my values than win by 30 and be ashamed of myself. 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? My GF would tell you that that's perfect for me...everyone in my life tells me how much older I am than my age. Yes, 20 is young. But, I'm a few months away from graduation (OSU - Civil Engineering) and I'm at the point where if I want to game I want to game for a reason. No more thrills of putting up 70 points. I want good communication with great people, and fulfilling, realistic gaming experiences. 5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? Yes I have. No concerns. It seems like alot to go over at first, but honestly I follow most of those rules already so it shouldn't be hard for me to adapt. 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. You don't know what kind of trouble you've gotten yourself into with that question Weeell. I'm an American Citizen, but a 1st generation immigrant. I'm an engineering major who firsthand can tell you how much a true physics engine would benefit the sport gaming world. I'm an Ohio State NUT, and follow them passionately (so if I'm a little pissy when my Buckeyes lose, please cut me some slack). I would tell you more, but I promised my mother I'd only get that far on the second date 7. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of? Here's the tricky part. I am dying to be a part of a league here that plays the style I do. But, I am in 2 leagues as is and also have an offline simulation dynasty that I am very immersed in. The 2 leagues I'm in are secondary, but I would feel bad bailing on those guys for something new. Basically, I would like to be waitlisted. If one of my leagues drops (very likely given the circumstances) then joining a TF league would be priority numero uno. Thanks for the time, sorry for the long read! Any questions?
