I’m the grandpa of the group as far gaming goes. I’m pushing the big 4-0 and grew up in the “Nintendo Hard” days. The days before the internet, where you needed a copy of Nintendo Power to get tips on how to beat bosses, or GamePro for the list of Mortal Kombat fatalities. The days when if a game was published by EA meant it was going to be great (RIP). My PC gaming life started with titles such as Wolfenstein 3D, Simcity, Doom, Quake and Descent. I also had a multi-monitor setup before it “was cool” to play Microsoft Flight sim. It wasn’t until Unreal Tournament that I got the Sniper nickname. I racked up 2000 kills with the sniper rifle in one sitting on the Facing Worlds map.The Sniper moniker would follow me through my teenage years though other games such as CS (1.2/1.6; I skipped the Source years), Battlefield 1942, 2, and 3, and eventually off the screen into paintball and firearm marksmanship.
I still love gaming. I played Counter-Strike when it was a Half-Life mod, and it’s the game, even after a triple A title comes out, that I still go back to. I got hooked on the pro scene a couple of years ago. I don’t really have a favorite team, I just love watching well-played CS. Having ditched cable TV back in 2012, I found myself watching twitch for background noise, and with that, lots of counter-strike. In January 2018 I was able to go to the E-League Major in Boston. It was an amazing experience, I felt like a teenager again and met some really cool people, I connected with Nerfed shortly after that in a Discord of people that were at the major.
I checked out his Twitch stream and was taken in by his passion for gaming and chill personality. I believe in his dream to run a successful professional gaming organization, and I help out whenever I can.
If I’m not in Nerfed’s Twitch chat you’ll find me touring the other Orion streamers. When I need a break from gaming I’m in my workshop tinkering, I’m an arcade game buff and I want to build a couple cabinets so at the moment i’m honing that skillset with smaller woodworking projects, and yes, the Orion streamers keep me company in the workshop as well.
My name is Lucas, I am a 21 year old college student studying Mechanical Engineering. A lot of my fond childhood memories revolve around playing split screen on MW2 on Rust, we didn’t pay for Xbox Live at the time but I still had just as much fun. While in high school in England I was a highly competitive swimmer and rower and when I had to stop I looked to gaming to fuel my competitive drive.
I started playing csgo when I saw it on sale for 2.50$ in 2014.
Names Meli0. What is good my family? I’m just tryna bhop through the CS:GO scene and make my way to the top.
Hey, I am the Web Dev of the team lol, CSGO BIO: I started counter-strike 1.6 when I was 8 years old with my dad and brother. We played weekly together and I had played hours a week until CS:S came out and we switched over to that. I became decent at CS:S until CS:GO came out in 2012. At first I did not enjoy the game as the mechanics were drastically different and I was not a fan. I later picked it up as it grew in popularity and started competing in ESEA in season 18. A year or two later I started going to college, which was the first year collegiate CS even became a thing, I join the Ohio State University eSports team and we placed 3rd/4th in the nation which really solidified the idea of playing CS:GO more seriously for me. Since then I have been competing mainly for collegiate CS but as I graduate in 2019 I am transitioning to focus more on my ESEA Main season.
I am a senior Economics major at The Ohio State University and I have been playing video games since 2004 when my uncle showed me Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It blew my mind being able to play with people all around the world and ever since I have always been trying to compete at the highest level in first person shooters.
