Resistance is futile

Stormborn Plays New World

Many of us had the chance to experience the latest New World test.  As it was a longer test, we had the opportunity to try out things we had not been able to before.

Stormborn was first to to claim territory on our server again.  We are getting good at that and need to bring it to the launch in fully force.  We were able to hold Brightwood, our main territory, in 3 wars.  We were able to also declare war as well and see all the aspects of the war system.

Wintery wrote up a full article about our experience.  You can check it out below!

Fallout 3 got me hooked for good. Even got a custom tattoo since it opened gaming to me and also is a kind of motto for me to go out, live life, and explore.

   • I have been to every U.S state and ...territory?

What game got you hooked on gaming?
When I was around 12 years old, I started playing Maplestory with my brother. At the time, it was a very popular mmorpg. Up to this day, I still play from time to time for nostalgia purposes. This game led me to play more mmorpgs like Wow, wow classic, Archeage, Flyff and more.

Nowadays, I mainly play league of legends and other small games, while waiting for the one true game to rule them all; Ashes of Creation.


What do you do for a living?

I work at the videotron center, a stadium which hosts events of all sorts in Quebec city, music shows, figure skating etc. However I have been looking for a job in communications recently, as it is what interests me the most.


Tell us 3 interesting facts about yourself:
   • I would rather do a hike when it is pouring rain, than on a
     sunny day. Rain feels very relaxing.
   • I do weekly climbing, I have a small fear of heights, so it's
     always interesting climbing down from those high heights.
   • You may have guessed if you heard me talk, but I mainly
      speak french

Bonus: I’m very interested in everything related to radio and voice works, I am currently building a soundproof recording booth at my home.

Do you have a Pet(s)?

Back in my parents house, we have a fat cat named Dixie. I do not know her breed but she is quite lovely.

I'm a Building Surveyor


Tell us 3 interesting facts about yourself:
   •
Unlike everyone else, I actually think my jokes are funny

   • I'm allergic to almost all skin care products, so I tend to get
      burned a lot each summer
   • I find it very hard to come up with 3 facts about myself

     without feeling like I'm bragging about things

Do you have a Pet(s)?

No pets, keeping myself alive is hard enough for me.
