Every Monday, we feature a community member who does one or more of the following things: routinely goes above and beyond for their fellow forum members, is a positive and active member of the community, and/or sends me mass amounts of cat pictures. This week our Community Member of the Week is A Blues fan. Read a little more about him below, then hit his profile to learn the story behind his love for the blues!
Gamertag: A Blues fan.
Origin 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 Waypoint.
Halo game(s) you are currently playing: Halo 4, Halo Wars.
Favorite map, game type and playlist: I love playing FFA Regicide on Haven as I find that game type 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 Halo character: Master Chief, of course! Although I do like the Rookie and Buck from ODST and think Lasky is a great character, too.
Favorite Halo 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: "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!"
Anything else we should know? I'm a father of three who's been with Halo since Halo: CE launched on the original Xbox. 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 Xbox-related Halo achievements except for Runnin' the Show on Halo Wars, which is proving to be quite elusive!
