Hello from South Wales


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I found your post on Reddit by chance and thought I'd sign up.

My name is Jon, I'm 31 and live in South Wales with my wife and two children. 

Like a lot of people it seems, I used the lockdown period as an excuse to build myself a new PC, having previously not owned one since around 2008. I used to play a lot of CS 1.6 and CSS in the 00's and have now discovered CSGO, but it really seems to lack that personal, community based feel that I loved way-back-when. UKCS was a community I spent a lot of time a part of, if anyone remembers that. 

I'm usually solo queuing in MM at the moment but it's really pot luck whether the game is actually enjoyable due to poor teamwork or abusive teammates. I was given GN1 as my first rank and am still there now, but at the moment I couldn't care less about rank and just want to have fun. 

Outside of family life and work commitments and when not unwinding at the PC I love to go trail running around my local area.

I'm looking forward to hopefully getting to know some relaxed, like-minded people!

Cheers

Hi Jon! 

Welcome to CS:40, and thanks for the introduction! You've joined the perfect place for what you're looking for. 

 

What do you do for a living, if you don't mind me asking? Also, do you mind if I add you on Discord?

Yeah please, add away!

I work in construction as a building services engineer, designing heating/cooling systems for new schools, leisure centres, office blocks and the like. Enjoyable and stressful in equal measure.

Hi Jon, thanks for taking your time to write a nice intro! 😄

It's nice to see that there are at least a few benefits of the pandemic, namely gamers having some extra time for their hobby. Glad to have you here!
