|Began Playing||online: January 1999 (I'm not old school =P) Before that, I was playing as much as i could via modem with Dorio and other friends on my bro's comp. I lost only 1 game in my war2 modem carreer (about 100 games,maybe more,thats alot considering i was able to play on my bro's comp only a few weeks a year). Strangly, that loss against dorio was the last game i played via modem. And he had beaten me with the "bloodlust" which he had just learned to use (but im not sure he was aware how good it was yet). When I finally bought my own comp. I had completly forgotten about the game and it is only like 6 months after buying it that I finnaly decided to look for a place to play online. First thing I found in search engine was "gamestorm".|
|Map / Speed / Resource Preference||Old gow/EVEN FASTER/high|
|Clans You've Belonged To||y,WOH,[Fw]|
Creation of the Frosty Warriors Clan, Creation of a Tourney site which i consider was a big success, Creation of a less succesful league site (I tried =P)
|Favorite Allies||All my clanmates, but more precisly: [Fw]Dorio (been my only ally for like 1.5 years , we are real life buds and started playing war2 together) [Fw]Stimmedpeon (first player I met on bne and first non-real friend to join my clan) Hornet (First non-french member to join my clan, really good player, good attitude, awesome ally) I think i'm missing a few, Sorry.|
|Favorite Enemies||Well, i have no idea about that but i would have to say the UK (unknown) clan. Back in the gamestorm days the WOH and UK clan , in my opinion, had a really strong competitive attitude. Playing clan matches versus them was memorable.|

If you could change one thing about War2 what would it be?
There is no doubt that a Battle.net without the fastest speed would be a warcraft 2 heaven. I enjoyed zone/gamestorm so much because we just had to create public game and we knew we would have a good game. But battle.net came, at first it was awesome, (shared vision, no more lag, integrated ladder(which soon became a bad point of bne, I prefered IGL), etc.) but the fastest speed strongly corrupted everything. All new players, unfamiliar with war2 started playing fastest and now it is in my opinion a dreadful epidemic.
Ogre rush from s9. (thanks to jessie for teaching it to me, been owning with that since then =))
Anything you regret?
"War2 is a Drug"
I am also Aragorn_LOTR (I used that name to bitch everyone, sorry all =P)
Most memorable games/times?
Undoubtedly, my gamestorm era. I started playing war2 online there. And it's moments i'll never forget. All the 2on2's with my buddy Dorio. so much to learn and such an 'enjoyful' community. I will always remember my first loss versus uk_havok (now known as __prophecy) and woh_conrad (dont think he still play) .
Me and Dorio were 6/8 respectively and since we were rather newbish we both stayed there. I got back towered with the "infamous farm and tower gay" by havok and i was like : "WOW, that's an awfully intelligent strat." Hehe, that was like our 10th game, yes we had won quite a few 2on2 before losing so we still though we were good (thanks to all those modem games we played, we were I would say "decent newbies").
How did you get your name?
Well that's simple. I started playing war2 right after I had beaten the Zelda 64 game. Which the game's boss is named Ganondorf.
Who was the best of all time?
No one. Someone sincerely claiming to be that is simply insane.
Describe your “career” from start to finish.
Well first I played a few years part time via modem. I started playing online at gamestorm in early 1999. It is the time I had the most fun, maybe because i was just beginning, but I tend to think it's because the people on that server were nice. There I joined the WOH clan, in which I manage to become part of the High Concil.
A few month after playing gamestorm, that server stoped being free, so I had to move to another which was "The zone". I believe me and dorio manage to be part of the elite of gamestorm very quickly, but zone was different. Players were using "gay wars" alot more, and overall skill was way higher. Also, when I first joined the zone, my nickname "ganondorf" was already taken, and the automatic suggestion of zone popped out "orangeraccoon". I though it was hilarious, I took it and played with that name until I got "good enough" to use my WOH_Ganondorf. At that time, I also begin to play at heat.net. I played there only 2 weeks, I hated the player's attitude there, espiecially the top 20 igl player that wouldn't play us or report their loss.
Then bne came out. I was surprise by how manuy french speacking player there was. Me and Dorio quickly decided we had to create our own clan : Frosty Warrios clan was born December 4th 2000. Stimmedpeon rapidly joined the clan and the clan reputation rapidly grown. Excellence and Delivrance which aren't natural French speaking joined. At that time, we were having most of our games in "clan [fw]" channel. Hornet , being a long time war2 bud of both Excellence and Delivrance, was now playing with us often. When most of the clan members went inactive for different reasons, I've decided to let non-french players to join. Hornet, aire, JJ, ohyeah joined quite rapidly since they were already playing alot with us. Then the war2 community slowly fading off, the clan did the same thing so I decided to no longer my clan to be an "official clan". Bleh, that is more then enuf.
