When and How did you start playing Auto Assault?
I heard about it from one of my RL gaming friends, we were talking about old computer games and I mentioned my love for the C64 classic, Autoduel. So he clued me in on AA, and I joined in August 2006.

How did you choose you Avatar’s name?
I envisioned my character as this feline, sleek predator who saw GZ as her own private jungle to stalk prey in. It fit my personality and playstyle, as I usually play stealthy/sneaky types. Tyger just came naturally from that.

Why did you choose your main Faction & Class?
The Biomeks just appealed to me. I had so much fun with my Agent, I hooked up with a great clan (The Steel Legion) and we seem to be blessed with a lot of good, mature people on this faction. So that got my loyalty in a big way. Plus, we kind of are the underdogs at times, so fighting and doing well in spite of that also appeals to me. And Agents quite frankly, rock!

Do you prefer PvE or PvP?
PVP, definitely. AA is a bit of a grind…if it wasnt for the chaos and fun of GZ I think I would have left not long after hitting 80. Farming bores me to tears.

Do you craft? What is your favorite crafted item (yours or others)?
Crafting in AA? I would rather rub my (private parts) with a cheese grater covered in lemon juice. That said, my favorite item crafted by another is probably the Reconmaster 7000 I got from Devlor. A dream of a car, fast as sin and turns on a dime. Once U4 comes I’ll probably go back to it, and get rid of the bike I’m on now. It handles like a drunken sperm whale after a week in Vegas.

What is your weapon of choice?
Battle Master guns baby, all the way. Tyger needs her claws. 🙂

What is your favorite ride?
See above about the Reconmaster.

Which junk item do you refuse to get rid of?
I have a Napalm Fountain 360 gun in my trunk. Rather useless for PVP but fun to use elsewhere. Sometimes I go back to Scrap Valley or somewhere, a lowbie zone, and stomp about like Godzilla, breathing fire everywhere and watching all the scavs go snap crackle pop!

What is your favorite NPC & location in AA?
Raider and Ma-Mary, hands down, in Cinderfall. BEST. MISSIONS. EVER.

Who is your Arch-Nemesis in AA (Player or other)?
Insi. Best BH in the game, and probably one of the best AA players there is, regardless of class. And, we’re also pretty friendly fighting against each other, and fighting alongside each other. And best of all, no trashtalking, gloating, any of that BS that seems to spew from so many other players. It seems to me the best players in this game rarely engage in such antics. Far better to let the guns speak for you. I’m friendly with a good number of players I hunt in GZ, actually.

What is your favorite moment you’ve experienced in AA?
Ooo. there’s so many. The best moments in the game for me are probably when I surprise and ambush multiple opponents at once, and catch them so flat-footed that I wipe the floor with them despite the odds. Doesnt happen a lot, lol, I’m not uber by any means. I’m just sneaky. 🙂 If I can drive the other two factions crazy, its been a good day for me!

Which new AA features would you like to see in the future?
Well, I’m not a fan of nerfing/striping players of gear/watering PVP down, which seems to be the direction the game is going. I’d like to see more additions to the game, rather than subtractions to players. Special cross-faction arena tourneys, for example. A new PVP zone would rock, if it werent for the deserted state of GZ for a good deal of the time. I’d really like to see a stable population in GZ most of all; where its not all one side or the other, but more roaming fights and battle groups and chaos, glorious chaos everywhere! :D[/p]
