When and How did you start playing Auto Assault?
May 1, 2006. My roommate bought it and so I started playing on his 30 day trial.

How did you choose you Avatar’s name?
Well, I usually use Shadow in all my MMO names, and the TV was running a special on primates, so…

Why did you choose your main Faction & Class?
Originally I started a Mutant Champion, but after hitting the 40’s and not having ANY missions, I rolled Shadow_Monkey and haven’t looked back. (The Champion is still level 43.)

Do you play solo? Why did you join a clan?
Mostly, I roll alone. My style of play affords me that luxury of not having to rely on anyone else, but if a group is out and about, I’ll try to link up, just to maximize the carnage caused. I originally joined Order’s Chaos and had a blast with them, but when they left, I felt a loss in companionship and decided to join Death Dealers as they were our blood-brothers and a stand-up set of players.

Do you prefer PvE or PvP?
PvP all the way!

Do you craft? What is your favorite crafted item (yours or others)?
Not even a little bit. Zero(0) crafting done so far in-game.

What is your weapon of choice?
I love my Momma’s Stinger.


What is your favorite ride?
Pillage RA-2 with +2 Penetration.

Which junk item do you refuse to get rid of?
I have this level 34 Storm Lightning Cannon that I got from a mission and used for about 20 levels. It has a permanent 2×2 space in my locker. I love it.

What is your favorite NPC & location in AA?
Lujuri. She’s a bit crazy but I love the missions she gives. Location: Cinderfall. Best area in the entire game, with the best enemies. Tempernet.

Who is your Arch-Nemesis in AA (Player or other)?
LOL, that’d probably be Soulie. I can never kill him, but he’s usually a good sport about it all anyway.

What is your favorite moment you’ve experienced in AA?
Rollin’ with OC and being on their Vent with 25 other Meks, just dominating GZ.

What song/genre you like to listen while playing AA?
Metal. And Paint it Black by the Stones.

What current feature would you change in AA to make it better?
Crafters need love. That’s all I can say.

Which new AA features would you like to see in the future?
Are players a feature? Just kidding. I’d love to see lower level PvP areas and other lower-level cross-faction interaction. Being a lowbie, all I heard about was how great GZ was. I’d have loved to actually SEE another factional player before I had hit 60.
