    It actually doesn't! I can't remember the base, but we found somewhere the other day that our Giraffe camo made up blend perfectly into the background.

    Back at the beginning, I remember we were at the WG and someone was wearing Giraffe camo. Another commented that it looked horrible, to which the reply was "Yes. It's the worst camo. Isn't it cool?" or something like that. I think that's how it started: everyone thought it was ugly, garrish and any other similar word, so it fit perfectly!

    Nevertheless, we also found out that it is also an excellent camo for Indar, and it really confuses enemies, especially NC. Of course nowadays people don't fall for that that easily, but there is always a moment's hesitation. In the beginning it was just the tan thing, the same as the NC default overalls. But I think it works as dazzle camouflage, and it's mainly the darker outlines that do the trick: they disrupt the character model's lines, and the general shape is not that easily discernible.

    On a tangent, other camos that work well are the white ones, as they blur the image, the dark green ones, because the shade is neutral and dark, and the black and white ones, especially Indar Dry Brush, which also work on the dazzle principle IMHO. Not a lot of camos actually conceal, but the above make IFF just a little more difficult, and some times that is all you need. Nevertheless, I kind of despise the black and white ones, as that is what the street thugs of Golden Dawn wear (black t-shirts, black-white camo fatigue trousers, black combat boots or Doc Martens).

    Makes people look like allies, still. That said, I'd rather gun down the ally than risk my death. It's the NC way.

    Guess it's my turn then, friend of Age, also a swede in my early twenties. Working in a second hand store, probably going to start studying engineering eventually. My online career started with some CS: Source and then moved onto BF2 and PR.

    Age dragged me into the official tournament, through the world cup and into the clan. Due to Age making me I have tried my hand at some squad leading, also helped with some of the leadership/admin parts of the clan, mostly by notetaking and yelling at Age and others when they did something stupid.

    Not much to say aside from that, I'm a quiet guy, play a lot of medic in order to pull Age's arse out of the fire while disregarding everything called good use of cover while reviving.

    Would that mean we'll have to start giving 'purple urban forest awards' too, I'm not sure it has as good a ring to it

    You know, it's occurred to me I've not indulged in this one yet so figured I'd do my bit to prove I'm not an advanced Turing AI.

    Real Name - Glyn (usually when I tell people this they say "Oh I know someone called Glen" like that means anything)
    Age/Location - 30 / London
    What do you do when not slaughtering TR scum? - IT at a big poncey fashion brand on Bond Street. Think of the ponciest, most rapper friendly fashion brand that you'd cross the street to avoid. It's that one.
    What brought you to Rock Planet Shotgun/Rock Traitor Shotgun? - I was already RPS from my time with the lovely Tribes Ascend community who seem to have since been taken away in the mothership. Seemed like the natural progression.
    Were/are you active in another RPS community? - Whoops... should have drawn this out a little bit more.
    Anything else you want to know? - If 42 is the answer, then why is this sentence so nerdy?
    Picture (if you want) - Disclaimer, I enjoy having my photo taken about as much as a Masai warrior so there aren't that many to choose from. The modern culture of taking so many photos of yourself at an event that you have to go read your own facebook wall to find out what actually happened at it leaves me somewhat cold. That's my excuse for this amazing photo that may or may not be from a few years ago;

    I knew it.

    I knew i could hear the twang of a Spaniard deep down in those dulcet tones.

    Hahaha i'm exactly the same. I tend to have a knack for the Tibetan monk style. Though, obviously im referring to complete neutrality and obliviousness to trivial things in oppose to self immolation.

    Well Rei Onryou is too handsome to be needing such beardy gimmicks. But yeah. PC gamers, go figure.

    And Nick, thanks for the reminder that Russell Crowe used to own a neck! In retrospect I probably could have found a better picture than Assassin's Creed Vicar Edition up there. There's even a few where I'm smiling because nobody told me they were pointing a camera my way.

    What do you do when not slaughtering TR scum? - Building websites. Mostly UI/UX dev things, and lots of Javascript.
    What brought you to Rock Planet Shotgun/Rock Traitor Shotgun? - I'm a defector from BURP (SA outfit). We weren't enough anymore and a lot of people came here, so I followed.
    Were/are you active in another RPS community? - Not at all so far, sorry. I might get into it, but yet-another-forum sounds tedious. I have bookmarked this specific subforum for now.
    Anything else you want to know? - Why did I bought the Eridani?
    Picture (if you want) - Here's a repost. I'll try to get a decent and fairly recent shot later.

    I started out in BURP too, I left a long time before it folded though. I think I lasted about three weeks into post beta before running into the loving embrace of RPS.

    I am an avid reader of history and I spend the very little spare time I have reading various science/technology/current events blogs. There is always something I want to know. I think that it's a very serious problem that the majority of society doesn't seem to want to know more about history. There is no meaning without context. That was the question, right?

    I can't grow a decent beard. It comes in all patchy.
