Application from Keith McBride - New Applicant

Post by Anonymous » Wed Feb 17, 2021 10:54 am

A user, Keith McBride, has applied with the following information using the application form.
Real name: Keith McBride
IP: 66.186.182.9
Email: keithmcbride41@gmail.com
Applying for: New Applicant
Reason for applying:
I'm an active GM who is more into the story/immersion side of playing online leagues, rather than being obsessed with "winning." Of course I want my team to succeed, but I like the idea of being a part of a bigger storyline, and that's why I've been looking for a league that is more immersive and less focused on merely intense competition. In my experience, the only way OOTP stops being fun is when GMs get salty because they're not winning enough. I don't get that, because if you only enjoy it when you're team is way above .500, then how can you consistently have fun with this game?
First/Last Name: Keith McBride
City/State/Country: Portland, Maine USA
Email Address: keithmcbride41@gmail.com
OOTP Forums Username: kmcbride
Desired Forum Username: kmcbride
Date of Birth (MM/DD/YY) for in-game purposes: 09/07/78
Occupation: Exec Director of a non-profit corp.
Other OOTP Leagues (with links): AHIBA (2012 - now defunct. cant find any links.) NABL (2012-2017. now defunct. link to our forum: nabl.forumotion.com
Have you read the BBA Constitution and agree to abide by its rules?: yes
Do you own the current version of OOTP, and plan to buy all future versions?: yes, i have OOTP21 with most recent patch.
Do you understand the Participation Point System, and agree to be a regular contributor to our community?: YES! can't wait.
What interests you about the BBA?: Larger community of committed, dedicated, reliable and experienced GMs. Continuity. Immersion.
Describe your GM style: I play conservative in building a team, and aggressive and fast with money when I think we have a chance to win.
Have you ever answered to the alias "Al Hoot"? (a little BBA inside joke!): I go by many names: PointlessCasserole, Ferris, K-Mack, and once . . JUST ONCE as "Don Gratzia, The Magnificent Mafioso Magician" but we don't talk about that.
Tell us more about yourself: I'm weird, quirky and my sense of humor comes out at times when I can't even help it. Over the last 6 months, I've lost all the hair on my body except my beard and eyebrows and I have no idea why. I'm a dad. I hate the winter even though I live in Maine.
How did you hear about the BBA?: I've been aware of it for years, as an avid OOTP player and participant in online leagues. I heard about UMEBA openings on the OOTP forums

I refuse to be in a league with Don Gratzia, The Magnificent Mafioso Magician. Maybe. Hmm ... now, I'm not sure.

You should fit right in with this group, Keith. Not sure if that’s a compliment...

Welcome - get yourself familiar with the league - browse the forums. Good timing as the yearly media guide should be out within a couple weeks 👍🏻
