Identity

Kvuo75-b17.jpg

My name is Mike Teague, I'm 33 years old, and I live in Vancouver WA, USA. KVUO is the ICAO identifier for the airport I have done all my logged real-world flying from. (Pearson Field, Vancouver WA). And the 75 is the year I was born :)

I picked this name the day I first setup an account in AH2, not realizing how integral voice comms were in the game. So most people call me "kay-voo" or "voo", or "kay-vee" or some other variation. I usually know when you're talking to me, and all are acceptable, since it is otherwise unpronouncable.


Tidbits

Country: Knights

Squad: (+) Precision

Favorite Fighters: N1K2-J, Ki-84-la, P-51D

Favorite Bombers: B17-G, A-20G

Favorite GV's: Tiger or Ostwind (Ostwind is much classier, IMO than that bastage WEOREBELEWINDZ)

Favorite way to irritate: field guns, cv guns.. 13500 AGL is sometimes not high enough for me to pop a bomber or two from a soft gun. Killing entire formations of bombers flying at 10000 MSL outside of icon range with 5" guns. Towering out a second before bomb impact in an ostie on concrete when someone tries to bomb vehicles instead of killing hangars at a vehicle base.

Cool/weird/stupid things I've done in game: Kill airplanes in flight with a shore battery. Chased an AFK-in-autoclimb 190A8 6 or 7 sectors off map WITH a 190A8, until he ran out of gas at ~33000 MSL, where I killed him, and flew all the way back home on 6 minutes of fuel, landing safely.

Equipment: I play on a $500 Dell Vostro 1500 laptop (core2-duo 1.2ghz/2gig/nvidia 8400gs = steady 59 fps with high-res pack at 1024x768) and a cheap Logitech "extreme 3d pro" joystick which I replace every few months.

History

I'm a longtime flight simmmer, starting with Flight Simulator 2.0 for my Commodore 64 when I was 9 years old. I was bigtime into Falcon 3.0 in the mid 90's, played a little bit of Airwarrior, played the hell out of the free beta period of Confirmed Kill (later Warbirds) on my first MSDOS PC, and then pretty much stuck to the various incarnations of Microsoft Flight Simulator for several years (including being very involed with SATCO/VATSIM [1] throughout the late 90's- early 2000's). I rediscovered the WW2 massive multiplayer combat flight sim genre just a couple years ago with AH2.

I have been playing AH2 since tour 81 (October 2006).

And now it's my main hobby.. hahahahah! I LOVE THIS FRIGGIN' GAME

And, I still suck!
