Since there are a lot of appreciation threads out there for various things and/or people, I decided to make my own but for slightly different reasons.
I’d like to mention a few people I’ve met on these here forums and played with frequently or recently, if I miss anyone it’s likely because we knew each other before Battleborn or we just haven’t played a lot regularly.
I’ll try to start from the first people I met and played with from here:
I think @Ryballs was the first I played with and one of the first I met here, we played a lot early on though we haven’t played much lately but he’s a great guy to talk and laugh with and he also founded the “Battleborn Forumites” PSN community which brought a lot of the players together and has over 150 members!
@elle_tee deserves a special mention, she’s one of the most active forum members and always has something positive to say which is more than I can say for myself sometimes (most of the time(all the time)), she’s very laid back and likes to giggle and laugh and just has a very positive attitude overall. Unfortunately often when I’m coming online she’s going offline so we don’t get to play much but we try when we can and enjoy it all the same.
I can’t remember when the first time I played with @palmedic89 was and I’m not even sure if I tagged the right one as bizarrely there are three McDoogle’s on these here forums, but we play together a lot and Doogle is one of the first players in my party most times. He’s pretty chilled, likes to joke around a bit and taunt when he gets kills with assault Miko, and has no qualms with playing the support which suits us arrogant slayer types just fine He’s one of the best Miko/Alani players to grace your team with Eldrid vitality and heals, and one of the best people to have on the mic, especially when we’re on the hunt for the fabled green bar!
I’ve had @Shield_Biter on my friend list for a long time but due to sucky Australian internet we seldom play together though we’ve had a few matches and he’s another of the most active forum members, we talk on the forums infrequently and try to play when we can which unfortunately isn’t often enough, he seems to be quite a rational bloke and doesn’t get nearly as angry as I would at a bad connection, hopefully we get to party up again soon!
I met @El_Are recently in a public lobby and we were matched together twice, once he was on my team a few matches later the opposing team. He’s a pretty handy Orendi and loves rocking Shayne&Aurox, also a pretty nice guy we’ve only played together a handful of times but intend to change that in the near future.
When @Ginger_greninja asked for more Aussie players I answered the call, he often plays split-screen so we don’t get to party often but he likes to make jokes about how balanced Gali is and plays a mean Benedict as well as my most hated Batleborn EL DRAGOOOOOOOOOOOOON, he even wrecked me on Overgrowth once with his partner in star-saving Jenn who I don’t think is on these here forums but loves to play Mellka in tandem, they’re a tough bouncy duo to beat but great to have jumping around on your team.
@EdenSophia is one of the most recent additions to my lucrative friend list, she too loves to play Mellka and schooled me in a private match on Overgrowth which I thoroughly enjoyed while on my way to the master title. She’s very relaxed and calm, and since I’ve been sick as long as we’ve been playing together I’ve been quite the opposite so apologies for that. We haven’t played much yet and she likes to play PvE but whenever there’s a free spot I send out an invite if I see her online.
I’ve probably missed a few so sorry to those who feel they deserve a spot on one of my prestigious posts, but to everyone mentioned here if you haven’t already met take the chance to introduce yourselves and add one another on PSN as we’ll all be partying together when there are free spots, and when there aren’t hopefully you’ll have enough to make a full Aussie party and finally chase the dragon, I mean the elusive green bar!
P.S. Yes, I am just sucking up to you all and using you for your green bar, GIVE ME YOUR GREEN BAR!
