Hello, this is Mazinger from the Haven server. I agree to the terms of code and conduct.
Mazinger a level 38 Barbarian, and is my first and only character. I don't remember who invited me, but I think it was warnaster. He was in the initiation zone when it happened.
This game reminds me of Dark Ages of Camelot, and Warhammer Online -- both being RvR MMORPGs that I used to play. The only genre that I play more often than this is MoBa, the main games being Heroes of Newerth and Defense of the Ancients. Other games I play are hunting games, like Monster Hunter and Ragnarok Odyssey. Planning on getting into Phantasy Star Online 2 and Soul Sacrifice when they come to the PS Vita as well. I delved into fighting games a bit in the past, and I'm actually better at those games than any of the aforementioned (best being MvC2, CvS2, SF4).
I have a bachelor's degree in computer science. Most of the research I did was on natural language processing using functional programming, but I didn't enjoy the direction my research was going so i switched focuses. I now mostly specialize in helping robotics engineers implement a pragmatic articificial intelligence system integration. Also fair to note that I am currently still in college, dual majoring in applied and pure mathematics. The focus in applied mathematics being numerical analysis, and pure mathematics being a focus on modern algebra (commutative algebra mainly).
Despite what i do academically... In the labor force I am mainly a code monkey, and tutor calculus 1/2/3, linear algebra, and differential equations on the side whenever I am in need of cash. Despite how busy my schedule sounds, it really isn't. I don't take more than two classes in college because I already have most of the requisite courses for the general education credits, as well as part of the major's requirements from having completed a CSC degree. Work wise, hours vary and are entirely dependent on students requiring me to go over to their house to tutor them. So I am available most days, and will plug in a few hours into the game if I have no other project going.
Oh, I forgot to mention that I am a 23 year old male who lives in NYC. I have a girlfriend who I've been with for three years, and am going to San Diego with her to an anime / gaming convention during the summer. If you have any questions or requests just post them in this thread.
