Well we've had some great folks team up with us so far in AoC, and are asking them to get in here and post a little something about themselves before being voted on. It seems a couple have been unsure on where or what to post, and I remember coming on this forum for the first time was a bit overwhelming too, so I wanted to give them a place to start.

Just a small place to introduce themselves, what games/real life activities they enjoy, and what are some of your favorite things about AoC?

Just to give ya'll an example, I'll do one for myself.

Most of you know me in AoC as Ahnyanka. My online gaming adventures started with the Tribes series, after which I played FFXI for a while before moving to WoW. I've been looking for a new MMO to catch my interest since going back to WoW after BC was released, hoping to find something I could keep playing with the group I'd found in WoW (SSX). The only thing I logged into WoW for was my friends here at SSX as the game itself hasn't been fun since their expansion.

After finding a couple of mates were already playing and raving about this game, my husband and I quickly went out and got it to give it a try. I've been hooked since the first night. I love the immersion of the game as well as the unique pvp aspect and am very excited both to get to sieges as well as getting to build my next character. Leveling in this game hasn't been the boring grind of other games at least to me, has more of the feeling of console games I've enjoyed rather than just doing it because I have to in order to get to the end-game fun stuff.

Here is one for me.

Most of you know me in both games as Undrin. I started gaming years ago with RPGs. My first MMO was WoW and loved the game. I have been looking for something to keep me interested during the times that I can play since most of the SSX WoW group are evening time players. I really enjoy this game and can't wait to get the full feeling of the new style of PvP.

Hello all,

My online game is Sergetov, but you can call me Eddie if that is too wierd for you. I'm 28, and I've played online games for a very long time. I usually do any sort of games, to include DoW, Starwars Galaxies, WoW, AoC, CoV/CoH, Tabula Rasa, CoD4, Battlefield 2142, and a bunch of others.

My other hobbies include playing my Ukulele, and table top games, warhammer 40k specifically. I'm currently stationed in Stuttgart Germany, where I'm currently serving in the US Army. I have a wonderful wife, and two awesome boys, who fetch me all the drinks I want while I play = P.

I like to joke around, and I'm all about having a good time. Oh yeah, I also like collecting Russian Memorabilia. The following is a picture of me.

And here is one of my little (not so little) brother and me. I'm the good looking one.


Anyways, I hope to see you all in game, whenever I finally get a chance to play.

hey, i posted one of these on a dif thread a few days back but here is another.....
My RL name is Matt or you can call me by my in game name Suggz, i am 22 years old and i live in orange county CA. i play a bear shaman on the doomsayer server. the first MMO i played was city of hero's, and that got old fast so i moved on to WoW....i loved that game but it did start to get old once i hit 70 then BC came out and gave the game some new life. I play a lot of game on my xbox 360 too but AoC has taken over....lets see why i like AoC, well aside from the awesome graphics the game does not feel like WoW or CoH, its a whole new type of game with all the things i liked about the others. in both of the other games i played i made in game friends but the guilds i was apart of were never this big and they were not this organized...and thats was one thing i was always looking for. some other things i enjoy are having a good time with my friends, movies (big movie buff), music mostly Funk, soul, and hip hop not the stuff they play on the radio so dont worry i dont think im a thug :D. well thats just about all i got if anyone sees me on just give me a shout i would love to chat it up or group with ya. hope to get to know you guys...have a good one and stay up.

Anyway, my name is Willis, I'm 27 and have a wife and a 20 month old son. I like playing games and drinking (not everynight, but often enough to list it as a hobby). I am glad to have been invited to play with you all, and I hope to have some good times while playing AOC. :thumb:

Hey hello folks... i just joined the SSX crew on the Doomsayer server, well i guess im still in trial period.

I have been a gamer since i was 10-12 years old, usually playing FPS and strategy games online/LAN + Travelling around participating in LAN Parties and their Competitions...

I Didnt start with MMO before WoW and to be honest, WoW was kinda slow paste for me, and i was telling all my friends about how i would wish a MMO should be like... and so came AOC :D and im totally hooked.

Im from Norway but live in Virginia Beach working for NATO for the next three years

Im rigth around the corner to become 21 years old, and because ive been living in the us for a year now... in a month i have some drinking to do.... my gaming time may go down a litte for the first couple of weeks but that will just be temporary...

Well i think thats it, if you r intrested in knowing some more... im on the Ventrilo server everyday im gaming...

MMO RPG Experience:
Starwars galaxies
Warhammer (not the computer game)

Hey all im a new initiate to the guild. RL name is Ian and I play as Risalt. Im a 23 yr old chemist with vague plans of going back to school for grad studies or something. Didn't really like WoW was too slow paced for me, did however really enjoy shadowbane for a time however. Now I'm up and running in AoC and loving it when I get to play. Only met a few people in the group so far, but I'm hoping to have some awesome adventures with everyone soon. :thumb: and ya i totally emote

I have been playing MMORPG's for a long time now. Starting with Asheron's Call, Anarchy Online, Lineage II, through World of Warcraft. I liked Anarchy Online so I decided to give AoC a try when it came out and became hooked. The locations and voice over's sucked me in and I am not big on story lines in MMORPG's. In previous MMORPG's quests were just a means to an end to get better gear and levels. This is one is different or I am older now so I look at it differently. I do not have a high level toon but I skip half of the quests and still never grind. There are so many quests there always seems to be someting to do. I am sure there is a wall out there at high levels but I have not hit it yet.

I am looking for a guild I can support along the way as well as participate with for the end game content.

Welcome to SSX. I know it has been a little quite in game recently, but that should change soon. As quite a few of our members are coming back after sometime away due to real life getting in the way. Also with the announcment of server merges, things should be kicking up!!

I have seen you in game a few times, but I think you have your guild chat in another window or just not on. So if you see me online hit me up.

I play mostly Undrin or Ethos! :thumb:

I somehow moved my guild chat to another window and have not figured out how to integrate it back with the main window. Sorry did not mean to blow you off. I need to get that fixed.
