Metro, you always greet us, you help us, you share hundreds of opinions, but I never saw you talking a bit about yourself. You are probably long known community member from the days of Mechwarrior 2/3 (too many posts to be from the MW 1 era
), but some of us (like me) do not know anything about you. What about you introduce yourself to us?
P.S. Grats on the new rank.
I only just met you a few weeks ago, and I must say, you have yet failed to amaze me with your spirit, outgoing character and inquisitive outlook on all things BT/MW/MWO and Liao.
I must state that I appreciate the way you represent the House of Liao on the forums. I hope others will take notice and follow suit.
I personally look forward to getting to know you better in the up and coming months on the MWO forums, and once we get rolling on open coms over Ventrillo I look forward to some great conversations.
I will share a few tid-bits about myself with you, but I will leave any remaining references about me, up to those whom I have known for years, and played countless hours online with.
But my new friend you asked for a little back ground, so I will oblige and provide you a little insight into who "Metro" is.
One thing you will have figured out now for yourself, is I am Capellan to the core. Green skin,green blood, green bones, green clothing,GREEN GREEN GREEN.
Why you ask?
Easy Answer: Loyalty. Something I have witnessed many I have met in the last 20 years fail to be able to claim to their hearts core. Why? It is always easier to move off when the s h i t hits the fan, and go somewhere where you can blend into the back ground and hide. But those who have stuck it out, defended Liao, Liao integrity, Liao splendor and Liao History, and we call one another friends? Well they have my full attention and dedication and will so until the day the Good Lord Calls me outta here.
How I came into MultiPlayerBattletech and all the great people I have come to know, was the reverse course of many who I know
I started playing online Batteltech in 1981 then got involved in EGA, Genie, Solaris, MPBT 3025 where I had always just run alone, because I was new to it, noone knew me, and I was new to computers and probably a little scared.
Then one day after days and weeks of no one speaking to me or inviting me to play, lo' and behold I was approached by a House Liao Officer. His Name was Green Hornet. A dude named Richard from the Carolinas! I was SO happy, I finally had a friend. He talked to me for a couple of days and took me under his wing, and taught me the ins and outs of the online game tactics.
Hence I joined House Liao.
I got to meet and talk to former and Current House Leadership and probably 100-200 of the most interesting Capellan people I had ever come across.
and the list goes on and on....
They all taught me about, House Liao, about respect, honor, loyalty,structure and order and set me out to fight! I was determined to protect them with everything I had to give.
From there I immersed myself in all things Liao, bought the board game, cards, story books, field manuals, miniatures hat,shirts, etc etc and I have stood by House Liao since I was just a young squirt.
You are correct MW1 I missed, but MW2,3,4 mech assualt, mpbt games and now Mwll and Mektek were all we had,
I am stoked about MWO and the promise it holds for our BT/MW Community. I want House Liao to play a big part in seeing it become a massive success.
