User:The Buttery Lobster
I'm a huge fan of Empires and will attempt to support the mod in any way short of teaching myself how to program (I'm still learning how to not suck at mapping) or send people money. (Although I don't THINK it's illegal to send people booze using federal mail systems.)
I would like to join an Empires clan, but before I do I'm going to buy a microphone for communication.
I go by the name The Buttery Lobster on pretty much any internet activity, be it game or forum or otherwise. (except, you know, that other stuff. You know what I'm talking about.) I've yet to see another person use the same moniker, and that's the way I likes it.
I enjoy messing with newbies (in a STRICTLY friendly and laid-back joking manner) before I help them out however I can, and I enjoy screwing with noobs and griefers (in a manner which causes them as much emotional pain and suffering as possible).
Also racing around maps in jeeps at top speed trying to run people over. Thats awesome.
Infantry Combat: Good. I can hold my own against other seasoned Empires veterans, perhaps even outperforming some in certain circumstances, and will play any infantry class without preference.
Vehicle Combat: Average. I can hold my own against average/infrequent players, and can dominate newbies, but against a vet who specializes in tank combat, I have to rely on the element of surprise to survive the battle. I tend to rely on hit-and-run tactics.
Commanding: Poor. I know the commander interface, can place buildings, and I have a familiarity with the Tech Tree. However, I can't micromanage units, I am hesitant to utilize the CV's mobility, and implementing advanced tactics from the commander's viewpoint is difficult. I can hold my own against average/infrequent commanders if I have a decent team, but against a seasoned commander, I'm toast. Also, I should note that I get incredibly frustrated when I'm comm and tend to curse and yell and generally be a doo-doo head, so I usually avoid it.
Current Arch-Rival/Nemesis: Private Sandbag. Anyone with that many muscles can never be trusted!
