PLAYER PROFILES

Artifact Player Handle: CJJ

Age/Birthday: 20 11/9/84

Job/School: For the summer I work at movie gallery in the winter im a
personal trainer and I attend college August 21st

Hobbies: Guitar, working out, capoeira, drawing, graphic arts and
movie bufferyouch

Clan: The Shadow Lords

How Long Have You Played: Got my first char in the end of beta got
cit
for it with pbn money

Most Crowning Artifact Achievements[what have you done that you are
proud of?] : I guess my biggest artifact achievement is nothing I
have
never really done anything particularly amazing never beat Flaubert
or
U T in an online. But I guess having the privelage of knowing all the
great players and people over the years has been nice.


Fav. Artifact: Fire die earth die

Fav. Artifact Unit: Infantry

Fav. Artifact Tactic: Destroying someones facils early in game with
20
(5) unit infantry splits right after they leave game

Fav. Game[Game you play the most often]: Fast Lone Wolf and Slow

Fav. Artifact Player: Then DeathStrike now Mr.Al

Fav. Artifact User Admin or Trainer: Im Partial to Moth and Mr.Al

Artifact Pet Peeves: Sharing facts in any LW games and mixed allies

Your One Big Suggestion to make Artifact a Better Game: My suggestion
would be to bring back a1 style of play and community. Back then clan
honor and pride were very important. Nowdays people dont care they
mix
in the games they wanna play dont really worry about playing with the
clan. In a1 if one Sea Of Souls, Ghost Riders (old gr) or Nexus
Legions member joined a game you knew that within an hour there would
be 20 more. Clans blitzing was also a big thing. The game was just
that much better when a clan was an actual group that played together
and not people you can call in to online for you.

Other/Comments: Just play the game
