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 Ultimate RC. Read a little more about this particular fan below, then hit their profile to learn even more!
Origin of Gamertag: My initials are 'RC' so being an utterly uncreative child, that's what I always entered back in the days when you could only have three character profile names. Xbox came around, two characters looked lonely on my Halo profile, so I created 'RC Master.' Xbox Live came around, and it wasn't having 'RC Master' as a profile name. To a teenager, what's better than being a master? Well, being the Ultimate of course - the final, the best imaginable.
This was supposed to also indicate how much better I had gotten at games since the previous names: when I first played Halo in 2003, even Easy was a struggle and dual-analogue was utterly mind-bending! Little did I know...
Current clan/community: Halo.Bungie.org, HighSpeedHalo.net, HighImpactHalo.org (now in stasis), Bungie.net, Quest For Mythic
Halo game(s) you are currently playing: Halo 4. Recently I blasted through Halo: CE again and had a great time. :)
Favorite map, game type and playlist: Blood Gulch (Halo: CE), Invasion (Halo: Reach), Big Team Battle (8v8, any game)
Least favorite map, game type and playlist: Lighting Flag - too much auto-aim! MLG - my heart isn't cut out for competitive PvP!
Preferred control scheme: Halo 3/ODST - Bumper Jumper. Everything else - Default.
Halo playing style (offense, defense, sniper, driver, etc.): Mid-long range generalist, peek shooter, Lone Wolf.
Favorite Halo character: The Arbiter (Halo 2/3) Thel 'Vadamee. Not only can he command fleets, he has cool, unique armor with a permanently in-built camo and can kick butt in a one-on-one.
Favorite Halo book: Contact Harvest - Johnson is pretty cool too :)
Favorite Halo quote: "Lies for the weak. Beacons for the deluded." - Gravemind, Halo 3.
Anything else we should know? I spend too much time on the internet, read too little and dream bigger than most dare.
Oh, and you can call me RC. Good to meet you :)
