A sucker for questions.
This week's Average Joe rocks out with his ass out and thinks it's totally alright to teabag other players. Oh, to be in High School again. If you want to relive your golden years, or you just want to get to know DTA MoonDawg a little bit better, we cornered him after gym class and forced him to say some nice things about us. Looks like he didn't get the memo about our moms, though.
Q. Who are you and what do you do?
A. My name is DTA MoonDawg, but others simply call me Moon. If you’re a random player in matchmaking, you’ll know me as “that guy who just teabagged you.” I’m a junior in high school mainly trying to study web design this year. When I have some free time, I either hang with the girlfriend or spend my time Haloing it up with some Xbox LIVE buddies!
Q. Cool. Where'd you get the tag, Moon?
A. Halfway through Halo 3’s lifetime, I was known as MoonDawg92. I then joined my friend’s gaming clan called DTA. That clan died a long time ago, but I liked the name, so I kept it! As for the MoonDawg part… that is a little more personal. I am blessed with the last name of Moon. Yes, I was born of the moon, and yes, I mooned your mom last night. Tell her I said sup. Anyway, MoonDawg was always a little nickname in school, so I put it in my Xbox LIVE tag!
Q. My mom is a classy lady. Don't be coming up in here impugning her reputation and whatnot. Keep your ass in your pants, please, and just tell us where you hang out when you drop by.
A. I mainly haunt the Septagon when I have some free time. However, I try to post in a majority of forums. Except the Flood. Too crazy for my tastes. My favorite area of discussion is definitely Halo’s storyline. I’m a sucker when people start asking questions about the plot. :)
Q. So is that why you game...for the story? Ever jump in for the straight up social aspects with friends and family?
A. When I first got Halo 3, I was mainly just playing with a few friends from school. Eventually, I got involved with a site called Facility B5D and met loads of new people! As for the game itself, I mainly hop online because I love everything about Halo. The gameplay, story, music, graphics, maps, the list goes on and on. It’s very relaxing shooting super soldiers. Who knew?
Q. What was the first Bungie title you spent some quality R&R time with?
A. Oh wow…I’d have to say it all started in early 2001. My friend called me up one day and told me to come over. When I got there, he told me about a demo of some new game coming out called Halo. I decided to give it a shot, so we fired it up. We played The Silent Cartographer a good 20 times that month. I was so addicted to it, I couldn’t wait until November! From that point on, I was a Halo fanatic. Hell, I still am today!
Q. Does that ever surprise you?
A. Not really, I love it here! I came to Bnet in early 2004 before Halo 2’s release to look at a few Halo 2 screenshots. Eventually, I made an account, and later that year…got locked out of the account. Dunno why. A few accounts later, here I am! This is my only active account now.
Q. Are you active in any other online communities?
A. My main online community is Facility B5D. I recently became admin there, and we just did a big visual overhaul. It’s great there! I also spend some time at BWO from time to time. But I feel Bnet is my true home.
Q. Anything you wanna add before you bounce?
A. I want to give a big shout out to all of the great members at B5D. I also want to acknowledge some of my best buddies throughout my Halo career, Hawkeye543, Legendary Blue, teck, Kritical, Anelf3, PunkPirateAFO, Mister Magoo, vanert, tye, mrjoshsays, Halcylon, cortanaV, Qbix, XEROPAIN, Psycho Vandal, SickNdehed, Ryan from R7, and many others. I would go on, but my wall o' text would be even…textier.
That would be just fine by me, Moon. Everybody knows that the amount of text is proportionally related to the amount of awesome. That's why I insist on getting paid by word count. Speaking of words, if you're looking to sound off on this brief interview, lend your own to the discussion thread attached.
