Welcome to my happening user page. Please drop me a message if anything's on your mind. :)

Info

I'm a west coast U.S. player who formerly mained Scout competitively. When I pub, I usually mess around with other classes, and I prefer no random crits or damage spread. My longest-running team was Perplex. I'm a long-time reader and lurker on Wikipedia, was a moderator on the old, unofficial TF2 Wiki, was an administrator on the Official TF Wiki prior to the user group restructuring, and am now a moderator.

My main interests on the wiki are mechanics and weapon statistics, policies and guidelines, usability features and formatting, game options and configs (scripts, huds, cvars, etc), and competitive play topics. Areas in which I'm noticeably less-than-informed include cosmetic accessories (hats), Model Viewer image creation, and translations.

Wiki work

  • Formalize and integrating the competitive play articles and categories

  • Taking part in wiki discussions

Other projects

HUD

My personal HUD is in the public beta stage. You can learn about and download it here.

Scripts

I'm revising my scripts (again), and while I'm procrastinating real hard on it, I can assure you that the will be much more comprehensive and updated than my old ones. When I'm done with them, I'll be hosting them here.

Writing

I wrote up a phatty explanation of competitive preferences a while back. If you're new you might learn something from it (otherwise, probably not).

Some time ago I wrote an instructional page for new TF2 players. You can read it here.
