Besides working full time and as a photographer at the side I am also an avid gamer. I have participated in clan games and competitive online play since 1999. I started my online gaming „career“ playing Team Fortress Classic in the clan NVA. With NVA I played in the premier division of many national and international leagues like ESL (back then named ESPL and DeCL), UKTFCL and many more.
Later I played World of Warcraft for sixth years, most of the time leading the guild „WoW in eXcess“ (EU, Mannoroth). Both in TFC and in WoW I found not only challenges and entertainment but most importantly wonderful people that nowadays happen to be amongst my closest friends.
Currently I fancy a round of World of Tanks now and then. I am streaming World of Tanks at least twice a week at www.Twitch.tv/RiipaHimself. Feel invited to drop by and say hi. While not being one of the best players (yet) I am currently working my way to the 90 percentile.
