Hello, to all! 

 

Q:What games do you play?

A:As a gamer myself, I play many games. My top ones, at the moment, are Battlefield 4 and Titanfall. Still that does not mean I wont play Need For Speed Rivals or Crysis 3 ones in while, or many of the games I have.:smileyvery-happy:

 

Q:What was your first game?

A:My first game on Origin was Crysis 1, one of the best game ever made (my personal view, fow now). Played it for a long time, even before Origin came out. It was a great game, its MP based on pure teamwork and much more.

 

Q:What was your favorite game?

A:My favorite game (or franchise) I must say again for now is the Crysis franchise. That was just a really, really good franchise and for now my best, after it goes the Battlefield series and so on...

 

Q:How did you hear about Answer HQ?

A:Before I came to Answer HQ, I was mostly on battlelog. From battlelog I learned about Answer HQ. When I first came here, I was just impressed on how good this community is and how much more it is mature then the battlelog community.:smileylol: 

I started to help, share my knowledge and solve many of your problems. I climbed the ranks, improved my helping skills and after months of hard work, finally joined the Answer HQ Hero team.

 

Q:Do you have a personal project or website?

A:At the moment no, I dont plan on creating any website (any help you need, you can get it right here in Answer HQ). For now, I dont really have any personal project, but I may do in the future. My helping time is all now concentrated on Answer HQ.

 

Q:What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

A: Only tip I can give to you (if you what to be a Hero), is be helpful, kind, understanding and knowledgeable. If you ever need more tips or advice about helping or a game, feel free to PM me at my profile here.

 

That is pretty much the basic of me.:smileyvery-happy:

 

You can also check this thread, where some of as have posted on why we help.

 

Do you think, you have what it takes to be among as? Go over here to find out more about Answer HQ Hero Program, in the Hero Program FAQ.

Who are you? 

 

I'm a mostly stay-at-home mom, living in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. I also work part time in database develeopment. 

What games do you play?

 

Mostly adventure games (Hidden Object based nowadays), Sims 3 and 4.

How did you hear about Answer HQ?

 

After helping for many years at the official site of the Sims 3 game, EA sent me an invitation to check out AnswerHQ before it went live. Been here every since.

What was your first game?

 

First game I ever played was Pong, many many years ago on a console my father had. After that it was mostly adventure games. Good times.

What was your favorite game?

 

That's a tough question to answer but I think my all-time favorite is still Sierra's Gold Rush and LucasArts Grim Fandango.

Do you have a personal project or website?

 

I have a Sims 3 Help Blog, availble in German and English where you can find instructions to the most common Sims 3 issues. The Sims 4 blogs are now also live: German and English.


What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

 

I have many tips for newbie helpers which can be found in this post: The Golden Rules of Helping but my favorite one is to always be courteous to others. Step away from a thread that makes you wanna give a rude answer.

Happy Gaming

Q:What games do you play?

A: Battlefield 4.

 

Q:What was your first game?

A: My first game was, like most babies, 'peek-a-boo'.
Speaking purely of 'video' games though:
'Pong' was the first video game I ever played, at an older friends house.
'Solaris' was the first game I ever owned (on Atari 2600). A truly awful game indeed!

 

Q:What was your favorite game?

A: The Battlefield games are the best I've ever played: Bad Company 2, BF 3 and now BF 4.
I also loved the original Medal of Honor (Playstation 1), the original Resident Evil (PS1), the original Tomb Raider (PS1), the original Fifa (Sega Megadrive) and International Superstar Soccer Pro (PS1).

 

Q:How did you hear about Answer HQ?

A: It was during a very vivid dream on a cold, blustery night when a voice whispered "join Answers HQ" gently in my ear.......no, actually I stumbled upon the place when I was looking for help when trying to launch the Beta version of Battlefield 4. 
Got hooked and never left the place.

 

Q:What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

A: Give priority to posts that have no responses yet - those people are the ones that generally need help the most.

Who are you?

I'm here as a gamer, so let's stick to that aspect of my personality. I grew up as a console/PC gamer. I own a GameBoy, Super Nintendo, N64, Playstation, PS2 and a Wii (Edit: and now a Wii U as well). I only had entry level PCs, so I couldn't play anything more demanding than Age of Empires II or Enemy Territory on PC. I transitioned further into PC gaming when I discovered gameplay footage of Mass Effect. I decided PC would be better than an Xbox 360 because I wanted customizability. I don't own any current-gen console, so I am now a full PC gamer. Aside from Mario Kart 8 and some other Nintendo titles, I no longer play on consoles.

 

What games do you play?

I'm a fan of the platforming, strategy and RPG genres. I like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Witcher, Civilization V, and Super Mario Bros., among others.

How did you hear about Answer HQ?

I posted on the tech support forums of the BioWare website (along with Answers HQ user Gorath_the_elder). Those forums were closed down in favor of Answer HQ.

What was your first game?

I started playing games on the GameBoy. The first games I played were Tetris, Alleyway (a Breakout clone), Super Mario Land, etc. My first game on a home console was Donkey Kong Country. My first PC games that weren't edutainment, were the LucasArts classics Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Full Throttle. I played these games at age 7 and that's how I learned English.

What was your favorite game?

My favorite games are:

 

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PC)

2. Super Mario World (SNES)

3. Mass Effect 1 & 2 (PC)

And runnerups in no particular order:


Team Fortress 2 (PC)
Portal 2 (PC)

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
The Secret of Monkey Island (Special Edition) (PC)
LeChuck's Revenge: Monkey Island  2 (Special Edition) (PC)

Final Fantasy VI (SNES)

Do you have a personal project or website?

I make small games as a hobby, which I make in GameMaker Studio.

 

What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

Help the people who are worth helping. Ignore toxic users.



I don't work for EA.

What games do you play?

 

I play all kinds of games from city builder games, ones that are puzzles, and plenty of action games.

 

How did you hear about Answer HQ?

 

I first found out about Answer Headquarters in the summer of 2013 while I was on another EA forum. It was also during that time that I had my first question about a game that I had downloaded to my tablet. I liked the fact that Answer Headquarters was somewhere you could go when you had an issue and an alternate way (and sometimes quicker) to get help and get back to your game. The game that brought me to this forum is Tapped Out. While I was at AHQ, I found that that I could actually be of assistance to fellow gamers. 

 

What was your first game?

 

At risk of aging myself, it was Pong and Donkey Kong. Games have come a long way!

 

What is your favorite game?

 

Currently, it's Tapped Out, or at least the one I play a consistently at the moment.

 

What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

 

Some tips I could offer people interested in helping (or becoming a Hero) are to be kind and courteous to others. Familiarize yourself with the different EA boards. When someone is stuck at a particular point in their game, or is having difficulty with resolving an issue, be clear in your directions and when possible, try to follow up if they need more assistance. I continue to volunteer at Answer Headquarters because I enjoy helping people. I enjoy moderating the forum to insure that people that need support, not only get the help they need, but have a great place they come to when they need it.

Q:What games do you play?

 I play a lot of Battlefield but also love RPGs like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and the Elder Scrolls.  Currenlty I'm Playing SWTOR, Battlefield, Diablo III, and the Elder Scrolls Online.  

Q:What was your first game?

 Combat on the Bally Game Center way back when dinosaurs walked the earth.

Q:What was your favorite game?

 Quake II is probably my all time favorite game followed by the battlefield Franchise (BF2 for classic Battlefield titles and BF3 for modern Battlefield titles).  The original Quake was my first ever online FPS.

Q:How did you hear about Answer HQ?

I saw the announcement posted on battlelog way back when it opened and decided I'd check it out.  I've been giving advice ever since!

Q: Do you have a personal project or website?

UPDATE:  I am listed on the Friday Night Battlefield site here: https://www.fridaynightbattlefield.com/ and on Twitter https://twitter.com/Ragnarok013 but no personal project websites related to gaming.

 Q:What's your favorite tip to give to a newbie helper?

My advice for a new helper is to read the original post carefully and try to answer what he\she is really asking.  Often times posters are not very clear on what they wish to convey but by careful reading and follow up questions we can often determine what is really the source of the poster's problems and provide them a solution that does not require the poster to contact a game advisor.  As difficult as it may be at times if we remain patient, polite, and helpful and we can often solve the poster's issue here or on Battlelog even if it means posting several times to get additional information.
