Get to know the team: MikeMill

(1/14) > >>

Well it appears I inched out Oldiesmann and get to be the first victim team member.

So let me explain a little of how this will work.  Jay along with some of the other team members put together a little survey.  I will answer the questions on that survey to give you all a feel for who I am.  Then you get to ask me questions for a week.  At that time Oldiesmann will lock and desticky this topic and put his up.

As far as my personal rules:
If I say something you disagree with, oh well.  I will express my personal opinionis on this topic and not hurting anyones feelings isn't a concern for me.  If you ask it I'll probably answer it, though there are some questions I won't answer.

So without further aido here is my survey answers.

Mike, what MMORPGs do you play?

None right now.  I played Everquest, City of Heroes, and World of Warcraft.  I tried Dark Ages of Camolot but never got into it.

Ever tried Guild Wars?  If not, you should definitely pick up a copy :).

I haven't.  My issue with Guild Wars is that from the readings it appears to be very PvP centric, which isn't really my cup of tea.
