My real name is Bodo (No, I have no "Bagger" (excavator) *lol*). 53years old (yes I know, old man shouldn't play with computers, but I do).
I'm from Germany (Westerwald) , but I feel more like a real European with German roots.
So I apologize for my humpy English, I don't speak or write it often, so I need a little bit of training, because I need it in the future, when my profession changes in the way, I planned it.
In game my nick is like here in the forum "McLeoud" in a deep love for Scotland and the highlander movie's, you can call me "Mac".
I hope to meet someone of you out there and we may have fun with trading or missions or whatever.
I played Elite first on Amiga in it's best years. It was not the first game I played, but it made fun, especially because there was so much freedom in playing it. This "new" Elite (dangerous" I bought it last year on weekend sale or something of this funny selling actions of steam.
I liked it on the first sight, because of this beautiful graphics and the real good physics and immersion. The only two things I hate, was at first this really awful registration procedure. The second thing I hate, are those stupid idiots with there PVP ambitions. Why don't they do with themselves, instead of peaceful players like me, which only want to play the game and get only stress with pirates, thargoids or enemy factions (NPC). No, they blasted me more than three times right before the station first out of the space, than out of the game!
I had no motivation to do all this grinding to get a new (or more) ship once again. I have only one left, its a Keelback (I believe so, because I have been more than a year not in game, and have forgotten many things about it). And some parts stored in various places, I don't know, which I need or not. Need to check out.
A short time ago, I thought what is happened to this game, and have something changed to it, to make it more comfortable to players like me? So I reactivated it and looked into the news and some forums. And suddenly I found this group, which seems to think and feel the same about Idiots in games like me
That was the ignition for me to try it again, in a private group of gamers, who like the game like I do it!
And so I joined you
I hope, my friend Andreas (Piratte) will manage to join this group too, but for him this will be a real challenge, because his English is much more then rusty (more broken)
. He thinks, that PVP is the core of the game, I don't think so, and I have tried often to explain this to him. I hope he accept this and follow me here in this group, even, if he doesn't write so much as me
. And as a friend, he will accept the rules of this group, so this should be no problem (even because he is more a trader and adventurer, than a fighter!).
I'm a big star trek fan (Picard a little bit more than Kirk), and that is the way I want to explore the universe in Elite!
So, live long and knusper (prosper) !
PS: It may take a little time, until I really get back into the game, because I have a (big) healthy problem with my fresh operated prostata, which could cause hard interruptions of gaming, so I have to wait until it's better. And I need to learn to fly my ship once again.
