Hi everyone. I've been on the site for a while now, exactly two years actually, but hadn't visited this forum before now. I spend most of my time in the Halo 4 forum or Waypoint forum. I've been increasingly active on here of late and someone suggested I should introduce myself here, so here goes...
A Blues fanOrigin of gamertag:
I'm a Chelsea FC fan. They're a football/soccer club in the English Premiership. Their nickname is 'The Blues', hence my name. I do also like Blues music though so that works too!Current clan/community:
Halo WaypointHalo game(s) you are currently playing:
Halo 4, Halo WarsFavorite map, game type and playlist:
I love playing FFA Regicide on Haven as I find that gametype and map combo pretty manic and fast paced.Least favorite map, game type and playlist:
Probably Team Snipers on any map as I find I'm only good with a sniper if people don't move and I have a few seconds to line up the shot, i.e. I suck with the Sniper.Preferred control scheme:
Default; Sensitivity: 7; Non-inverted.Halo weapon specialty/preference:
I'm trying to increase my use of the difficult weapons as I enjoy having goals to complete and I'm currently trying to get weapon commendations. I've mastered the Plasma Pistol, Storm Rifle and Pulse Grenades as I thought I'd try with the hardest ones first! I'm currently working through Suppressor. Halo playing style (offense, defense, sniper, driver, etc.):
I'm pretty much a Lone Wolf and like to do my own thing in games. I used to worry about my K/D in objective games but now I just relax more, have fun and go for the objective as well, which means I'm more offensive nowadays.Favorite character:
Master Chief of course! Although I do like the Rookie and Buck from ODST and think Lasky is a great character too. I hope he doesn't get into too much trouble in Spartan OPs Season 2 after interfering with Halsey's assassination.Favorite book:
Contact Harvest was a nice story with the relationship between the two AI playing out the way it did, (nice in a sad way).Favorite Halo quote:
Sgt. Johnson, Halo 2 wrote:Anything else we should know?
"When I joined the corps we didn't have any fancy-schmanzy tanks, we had sticks! Two sticks and a rock for the whole platoon - and we had to share the rock!"
I'm a father of three who's been with Halo since Halo: CE launched on the original X-Box. My two sons like playing Halo with me, but the wife and daughter aren't really interested, being more into their wii fitness/singing games. My first online experience was Halo 2. I have over 11,500 games of Halo 3 and 4,500 games of Reach under my belt. I have all X-box related Halo achievements except for Runnin' the Show on Halo Wars, which is proving to be quite elusive!
I try to stay positive on the forums and help other members out where possible and look forward to logging in each day to see what's new in the community. For instance, I'm looking forward to playing Action Sack later this week as I hear the gametypes are a lot of fun!
I also like to make lists & guides to help fellow forum users and answer questions, so I thought I'd link to some of my favourites here:The Giveaway Topic - Free Stuff Here...Halo: Spartan Assault Information & ResourcesSpartan OPs Enemies by DifficultyBird of Prey achievement guideComplete checklist of all DLC and how to unlock itComplete checklist of all Marketplace contentComplete checklist of all 16 Weapon Skins and how to unlock themComplete checklist of all 73 Helmets and how to unlock themComplete checklist of all 175 Emblems and how to unlock themWhy were some 'classic' emblems left out?
