About IDDQT

Growing up, I shared a PC with my older brother who managed to convince our parents to buy Warcraft 3. I’d never played any videogames before that but the visuals captivated me and it was magic. My brother always had priority on gaming time on the PC and so mine was very limited. At that age, I had no idea the world of videogames was limitless.

Eventually, I had my own PC and I started playing Counterstrike when I was in high school. It was a dark time, I spent a lot of my time in the basement playing instead of studying for exams. Not long after, I discovered LAN parties and competitive gaming. And then it was on!

I was never part of any clubs or sports teams when I was a teenager but the competitive side of Counterstrike woke something in me. I had an easier time with speaking in public and making new friends. The CS community had some female players already and eventually, all female teams began to surface. I was part of some of them. However, since the scene was rather new, teams parted ways as quickly as they formed, and I lost some of the interest I had at the beginning.

I spent some time on various Blizzard titles (World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2) and some First Person Shooters (Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo). Then, Saint-Jeff Kaplan praised be his name, decided to make a shooter. All the love and time I put into the games I played don’t come close to what I’m hoping to accomplish in Overwatch. Bless Jeff Kaplan!

I bought Overwatch on release day and I played it nonstop for many weeks. I loved it but I didn’t have many friends who were also playing it. Something was missing. I followed the opening of Montreal’s E-sport bar Meltdown when, one day, they announce Friday Night Overwatch. Alone and with the courage I could muster, I headed down to Meltdown. The community was friendly and down to earth. I felt right at home, so every Friday I went back.

After a few weeks, one or two new girls showed up at Meltdown, and it was easy to discuss the competitive scene. It’s how I came to meet SurlySheep, Stargazer, Fabulous and Calypso. Not long after we started playing online together and I met Mixy, Tachikoma, Idkmonkey, and Quake. Today, I can always count on one of them to come with me to Meltdown.

Thanks, Jeff. :’]
