    I was first influenced by Darkchewie and Painaid. I watched there videos with an almost religious zeal, before i even got into twinking. I finally made my 19 FC Resto druid back in early cata named Rageclaw. Once i joined the 19 bracket i didn't see much of Darkchewie or Painaid, so i was at a standstill with no active player to teach me.

    I would say i actually started to improve when i joined <Proxy> on Vek'nilash, Awesome's guild. The constant surround of more experienced players def helped me up my game and get on track. The most improvement i saw however was thanks to Flash, and all the other members of <Revitalize>. He was our rally point, he made me understand what "Teamwork" was lol.

    Too many, and too long ago to remember all of them. My best friend irl first got me started playing. There was a 29 spriest named Zatknis that I teamed with back in vanilla. Saerdna's 60 mage videos were my first pvp role model. Catarine, the GM of <Trinkets on Cooldown> and later <Chaos Theory> in Bloodlust played a big role in the good relations between them and my guild. I especially loved theorycrafting with Riddle. I could also list all of my guildies back in PH, but that's a bit too many. XD

    Sorry, I can't pick only one. Heck, my playing and leadership style may have been most influenced by my experiences and learning from my favorite boss and mentor irl. >.>

    Mastur and Lannee had a huge impact on my stemming interest about twinks. Full on run thrus, escorts during the tourney, quest exp guidlines and what order to get items so I could have as much extra exp to toy with. Super polite, friendly and just outstanding people who cast very little judgement on anyone and would welcome just about anyone into their circle of trust if you proved your worth. They got me associated with bebetta and her posse while doing arenas/group ques that helped mold my play style at Rdruid back then. A Free Frost tabard would be a perfect example of their generosity. Just so I could fit in with their crew of friends within CM once i got my first pair of boots and hat. Ive lost touch with those two and fear I will never get another chance to say a huge thank you for all the empathy and patience they demonstrated while carrying me. We weren't the best of players at the time but that was ok as long as we showed signs of improvement while enjoying each others company.

    Dodgedurface also has a warm spot in my heart, he was the one who was the elitist out of the bunch and expressed his desire to excel at his craft while sparing no one. He helped me with endless questions I had about counters to class specific ideas. we would brainstorm. Between the 3 of those guys and their maturity while playing this game has provided me with a warm and fuzzy feeling when I think about my past and how I got into this niche of a community.

    Almost forgot about Pwnprone. Everything I said above this applies to him s well. He got me pretty tight with Loveseat and he 3 of us had some great times.

    If either of you four get a chance to read this, Healbot thanks you for all that you did and at any moment in the future if there is anything I could do just PM me here and let's chat. I got a bunch of stories to share and I'm sure you do as well :)

    Until then THANK YOU and be well! Great idea Agonist! TGIF

    Coldyraymon - Skullcrusher.

    I was playing BGs on a low level hunter. Coldy was the first twink I had ever witnessed, and the rest is history.

    Beastly, Tko, Sightless, Das before the name/realm change, this one really shitty twink on Perenolde in BC named Knath, and my ooooold friend Nyquil (previously Cheapshot).I wasn't really inspired by any big TI/Pwndepot/whatever website names, just people that I knew from early games and getting raped in the gulch.

    Vek'nilash was pretty much the turning point for me - once I got into The Chosen Few, there was no going back to regular WoW
