Hey all, 

I am The Saga...or Frank (it's not my fault)  Whatever.  I'm a husband and a father of two. Live in the Chicagoland area. I am newish to PC gaming. Played way, way back in the day. Then some consoles. Now on PC. I work in the tech field at a school district. I love chatting with people and just having a good time playing games. If I'm not doing that, I'm working on recording music with other people because it's more fun to collaborate with others in my opinion. 

I came across the ATeamGC by way of Twitter. Saw some posts and retweets with the hash tag and I looked it up. Came into the Discord during the initial launch week. Loved it ever since. So many great people, conversations and generosity here it is unbelievable. Love this family.

Hiya, everyone! I'm BTOptimizer, EastCoastMods' only daughter (and youngest) after three boys. I am related to VampireJester and no, we're NOT twins, haha. At this time, I am currently still in my teen years of age so I'm still a kid as Paul says: "If you still have 'teen' in your age, you're still a kid but we love you either way." <3

Hello there!  RAbbi here.  Found Crimmy's Battleborn stream, and now here I am as well.  About ME?  Oh, yeah...

Let's see.  Joined the Army at 17, back in 1991.  Retired a couple years ago, in 2013.  Bounced around a LOT.  Bosnia, Albania, Afghanistan.  Korea (twice), Germany, Hood, Bragg, Hunter AAF, Eustis a couple times, Sill.  Started in teh reserve for a couple years, finished in the guard (WV), spent some 15 years in between full-time.  Got a BA from WVU in Russian Language.  Some time in grad school at Ohio State studying Slavic Literature & Culture, and teaching first-year Russian.  Now I work at WVU.  Divorced, one daughter (18, about to become a freshman at Colorado State), a couple stepkids about to start 9th grade here in Morgantown, WV. 

Love me some FPS video games.  Played the original Wolfenstein3D, DooM (all incl. N64), Delta Force 1-3, Ghost Recon (best tactical FPS EVER!), BF2, CoD-MW, GR:AW/AW2, ArmA 1-2, FEAR 1-3, the entire Borderlands franchise, MechWarrior Online, Battleborn, about every Splinter Cell (through DA) and Rainbow Six (through 3 or Raven Shield, whichever was last).  And some other stuff, I'm sure, that I've neglected there. 

So.  That's a little bit about me.

Also, I work 2-10pm Eastern Mon-Fri, and about every second or third Saturday (hours are VERY variable), and so in another week or two I'm going to go ghost on Twitch.  But the overtime is very welcome right before the holidays!

I'm fairly active on the Discord server, and by that I mean just the voice channels.  Rarely get on the text ones.  College student and doing Air Force ROTC (future officer hopeful) currently.  I currently like playing Overwatch and Stellaris, but I do like to go into World of Tanks, World of Warships, War Thunder (not as much anymore), and Minecraft.

I'm TechWithBrandon. System Administrator by trade. I'm a running enthusiast with a 9-min / mile pace. When I'm not working or running, I try new foods (especially from fast food places), cook and read. My favorite books include The Disaster Artist, Jurassic Park, Battlefield Earth and the Ultima: Technocrat War series.

I started 2 YouTube channels a few months back and have been focusing on getting a gaming stream up to coincide with the channel. They mostly focus on technology and fitness, but I'm starting to branch off to other topics as well.

Find me in all the old familiar places

I've been around for a bit. If you need a hand in getting your feet wet with linux gaming give me a shout. Otherwise you'll see me around the minecraft server, insurgency and rocket league.

Hello All,

 Xavious here. Most call me Steak as I rebranded my twitch channel to TheRealMrSteak but you will see me Discord and other things as XaviousD.

I've had some form of computer since I was 5. In the EARLY 90's I ran a multinode Bulletin board system (with dialup and stuffs, you were top dog if you have a 14.5 baud modem) and was in the art scene (ANSI and ASCII).

Favorite all time game has go to of been and still is Star War Galaxies, (pre/post CU versions not the NGE stuff they put out after the fact), and I'm also a World of Warcraft player, however I don't play on a schedule anymore just here and there.  I'm currently into Minecraft, The Division and 7 Days to Die.

I run my own e-commerce business and I worked for amazon for many years as a project specialist fixing amazon's internal processes for support teams.

Any questions you may have feel free to shoot them my way.
