A single father, who plays videos games, perhaps too many, and I am an angry Scot. It can lead to some interesting moments on comms.
In my past, I have worked in the gaming industry as an entrepreneur. It never started as a business venture, just as a way for my xbox live clan to find more UK based clans to fight. It worked out really well and soon grew to multiple sites and services. My alias back then was Pelega (or Pelega WoC) The main website was the UK’s largest clan based events website, supporting Xbox, PS3 and eventually PC clan based games. Official operations ceased in 2010, when I settled down to start that family thing – it didn’t pan out too well.
Developments with the EVEcommunity events server Thunderdome, saw me start to go back to some of the software I was working with in these early days in the industry, primarily our ladders and tournaments code.
Working with EVE_NT staff and more members from the community we started developing Arena.EVE-NT.uk – Thunderdome esports for EVE Online.
My dream was to compete but as time has gone on, it seems I may have fallen into another role with-in the operation of such a service for players.
I will continue to share and develop my experiences and work towards developing more regular eSports events for players to participate in. It just might not be on EVE Online.
