      In the German community we have a large base of E-sports pros - and a lot of poker professionals (e.g. Elky) also stem from a competitive gaming background.

      Any of you used to or actively play games on a competitive basis? Which ones? :)

      That's 1 part of the sentence, so he doesn't say Elky is german.

      I played in a MOHAA clan years ago, and we made it into the quarter-finals of some Championship, but I don't remember which one it was.

      But there we got our butts kicked by some Swedish clan, who went on the win the whole thing. Damn, those Swedes are great FPS players. :(

      [EDIT]: Ah, I remembered. It was a ClanBase EuroCup, and this here was my clan. :D

      About 2 years ago I was #6 in the world at battlefield. All the regulars had a private chat room and we used to bet against eachother, I made a mint on that game. I am still on the leader board at #11, and I haven't played for 2 years :D

      I used to play Dota as well - had a few good shows at bigger tournaments but never really won any big ones :)

      I was good at Quake 3 and represented my country in a few big tournaments like ESWC. That's all past now and I'm really shit lately. That's good, cause it gives me more motivation to keep on playing poker instead :D

      I played Broodwars off-line a lot... I swear the CPU cheats!!! :) I can't micro manage fast enough.

      I use to play online Axis & Allies league play and won a couple big tourneys. I was ranked in the top 10 at one time anyways.

      I quit after I had the top rated palyer on the ropes and crushed his strategy then all of a sudden every roll of mine lost and his won. every time!! before this occured he even asked me if I wanted a draw. I said as if pal your toast!! He won the match against 1/10000000000 odds so I quit because i then knew there was a dice cheat out there. No one beleived me then a year later MSN dropped A&A due to a dice cheat. :( cheaters suck!!
