Wow that's really cool! I'm jealous! Does your name have a story behind it? Doesn't seem to be the average :P

Hey, ya bout the name.... When I first started playing the original Quake & CoD:UO I was brought into an elite group of guys that would school me... I was such a noob I played with these guys for a week before I realized I could change my name from "Unknown Soldier"... Well being the quite new guy I didn't say much in Teamspeak so they must have forgot I was there... They started talking about the noob that had been hanging around lately.. The Clan leader at the time says "Hey, I like him around he helps pad my stats.." another guy shouts out "Lets start calling him D.O.A.!!" a.k.a. Dead On Arrival... Well I switched my name right then and there for a laugh and I guess never changed it...... As for the "tags" {uZa} it in memory of some of the most fun gaming I've had in my life with my now clan mates the Unreal Zark Alliance... If any of you have been playing games for years you should know where the name comes from.. But, that's a story for another time...

Probably because I've been trolling these forums and others that you mentioned

LOL, yeah but, it did make me a better player...! It taught me that most of the time having a tactical approach to FPS games help not only your stats but, your teams as well...

LOL, most of my clan mates say the same.... But, he is a great kid... Using the PC as leverage works out beautifully as well...
