Real name: Keith McBride
Applying for: New Applicant
Reason for applying:
First/Last Name: Keith McBrideI'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?

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.

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
