1000th post!

Postby WarSmith » 11 Dec 2011, 08:33

Name: Matt
Birthplace: Hammersmith, London, UK.
Current Home: California, US.
Age: 31
Employment: 12 years in Telecoms, currently a Director at a fortune 100
Gaming system: Playstation (I've had them all, inc. the play phone)
Favorite Food: Curry
Beer: London Pride
Favorite Sports:
To watch: Football(soccer), Cricket, Rugby, Baseball, mma
To take part in: Running (was a talented junior), cricket, football
Favorite TV Show: Documentaries
Favorite Movie: The Princess Bride
Favorite Books: Fantasy (guy gavriel Kay etc), and historical fiction (like Bernard Cornwall)
Other Interests: Travelling: I travel a lot with work, and have been all over the place, I always take a day or two on trips for sight-seeing. Have lived in both Sweden and Turkey, and spent large amounts of time in Germany, Italy and France. Special places for me: The forbidden city (went in 2000 before it got too touristic), Epheseus, Seoul, Istanbul, Paris, Barcelona.
Politics - its what I studied, and it's what I'll do in later life, I keep active in this area.
Diplomacy Tactics: well, I like winning! I vary my tactics based around that. I am proud of my ranking and proud of the fact that I have played so many games, and had so many draws - because, one reason I play is for the team-work... I like meeting new people on here, trying out different things. I've played f2f, and also feature in my fair share of forum games (with a good win record there too), I've faced the accusation of taking over so many surrenders before, but hey - I've been through some heavy addiction periods with this game, playing 20 or 30 games at a time, so keeping it interesting by taking on different positions is part of it for me. I love this site and hope it continues to go from strength to strength. I've even helped out where I can (if you don't like the exact position of the borders on the new map - its my fault) and would do much more if I could. I've met a lot of cool people in my time on here. I'm not gonna lie - there are times when I've danced round the living room after pulling of a solo, or a super-stab.
1000 took a while. I live a busy life, so chatting on the forum can be hard for me. I tend to post in flurries, but find it hard to be consistent. I play the game very fast, that means I'm actually very honest in game play, and often write in chain-of-thought style. 1000 probably would have taken a lot longer if I hadn't joined the FCYOC recently!

Grats on post 1,000, Golden Horde ruler.
Nice career and traveling record.
I love the bay area; how long have you been in Saratoga?
So, married or single? ;)
