Whether you've seen him cloak out of the corner of your eye or been repeatedly stabbed in the back by him, you've probably noticed Gavin is a pretty good spy. Emil was able to track our new player of the month down and ask him a few questions:
Q: How long have you been gaming and what was the first game you really got addicted to?
A: Oh wow, this is going to make me seem old...I've been gaming since the late 80s, my first games were the Sierra adventure games, like Leisure Suit Larry and King's Quest. I got into online gaming in 1996 or so with Quakeworld
Q: What originally brought you to HK's TF2 servers and why did you stay?
A: I was looking for a server with a good ping and started playing on the HK servers when they were in NY (I miss my ping of 7!) The players seemed a lot better than the usual pubs so I kept on coming back.
Q: What's your favourite map, and why?
A: Hmm, either Goldrush or Badwater. I enjoy payload maps, they tend to be a lot more exciting.
Q: What's your favourite class and why?
A: Spy, there's something satisfying about taking down an Engie nest or stabbing everyone on the cart.
Q: And what do you consider your worst class to be?
A: Scout...I am terrible at Scout. I can play most of the other classes at least well enough not to embarrass myself.
Q: What is your favourite weapon unlock?
A: The Cloak and Dagger. It's so much better than the regular invis watch.
Q: And which unlock do you think should never have been added into the game?
A: The Phlogistinator, it's just too annoying.
Q: When in a game, what is the most annoying thing your team can do or not do?
A: The thing that really drives me nuts is when people refuse to play an offensive class, so we end up with all Spies, Scouts, and Snipers.
Q: What single thing do you think they could add to TF2 to make it even better?
A: Give some reasons for people to play Medic on pubs, it's a thankless task most of the time, and you're the class that everyone tries to kill first.
Q: Agreed :P That's all the questions I have for you, is there anything you would like to add or say to our readers?
A: Watch your back, I'll be hiding around the corner
Q: I'll keep that in mind... :P Thanks for your time and congrats on being picked!
A: Thanks again!
