    How did you hear about Tradition Football: League Commish (Randiesel) referred me

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where?


    I've only played in a few MLB The Show leagues as I don't play other sports games.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?


    I've been playing video games since the NES generation. I've been playing online since 2007 when I got a PS3.

    3. What type of player would you say you are?


    I'm a pure sim baseball gamer. I probably see more pitches per game than 90+% of players and I will have your starter tired by the sixth inning most of the time. I don't quit, cheat, or glitch. In Metal Gear Online (which I've played over 1500 hrs), I have a 0% withdrawal rate as I only quit against glitchers.

    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?


    Seems like a good place if the average age is upper 20s to 30s as the teenagers are usually the annoying ones playing online. In my clan in Metal Gear Online, we kick people that tea bag in our rooms. I'm one to let my play do the trash talking for me, and say good game after the game.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?


    The rules seem to be focused on football. They seem to focus on playing sim and not using any cheap tactics allowed by crappy AI and whatnot. Sounds good to me.


    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.


    My favorite sport is baseball with football coming in right behind it. I don't really play football games since I don't like Madden. I'm a gamer that enjoys all genres; my favorite games last year were Bayonetta, Vanquish, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Mass Effect 2 (just now playing it on PS3). I really only play online games if they are meet very specific rules like I won't play online shooters that have health regeneration or don't have a lobby/room setup as I hate matchmaking. I also only get into online games if they are properly balanced and there's no cheap tactics as I haven't gotten into another online shooter is 2+ years since Metal Gear Online is very balanced and no shooter has yet to surpass it in gameplay. Since I don't really play sports anymore, gaming is where I exercise my competitive side; I'm all about trying to win the game (fairly) and I don't play to get great looking stats. I just try to find a good group of people to play with that are around my skill level and have fun playing the games I love.


    7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community?


    I will probably only be active with any leagues I'm in with The Show as, like I said, I don't any other sports games. And my commish for The Show said he runs his leagues through this site.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF?


    Looking to be in some great leagues for The Show.


    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 guess communicate it to my opponent first and see if we can resolve it in-game. If we can't come to an understanding then I'll message the league commish about it.


    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of?


    I haven't checked out any of the leagues here yet as my commish will be running a league for The Show and I don't like to play in 2 leagues at the same time. I checked out a bit of the discussions about MLB 11 The Show and that's about it.

    @Phoenixmgs - welcome aboard. I sent you a PM with details for once your application is approved.

    @TSO staff - solid guy right here who I've known for years. He was a staple in past The Show leagues I had ran offline from TSO.
