Player Profile: Wapcaplets (Chris)

Player Profile is a series of articles in which R2-EQ looks at players in the X-Wing community. Many people would like to get to know the person behind the player. In X-Wing, the players are renowned for being “nice guys” and often can be quite characterful when you scratch the surface.

Today’s interview is with Wapcaplets, known as Chris in real life. I met Chris in Toronto where we faced off playing in an X-Wing Escalation Tourney. In my loss to Chris I learned how not to fly X-Wings and how a good player with TIE Interceptors will punish you. If you’re ever lucky enough to have a game with him, you’ll see he is a true gentleman and a credit to the community. So without further ado, let’s get to the interview.

Today’s interview is with Island Rogue, known as Steven in real life. I met Steven when he was living in Toronto and managed to have a game with him at a tournament once. Not only is he a likable fellow and a treat to play against, but he’s pretty good at X-Wing too! Currently Steven resides in Vancouver. I did this interview just before Scum was released and waited for him to finish re-painting some of his ships as I thought it was important to include all facets of his X-Wing love in this article. Now that his ships are painted, the article is published for your enjoyment.

Player Profile: R5Don4 (Don)

Player Profile is a series of articles in which R2-EQ looks at players in the X-Wing community. Many people would like to get to know the person behind the player, and in X-Wing not only are the players renowned for being “nice guys” but they are often quite characterful when you scratch the surface.

Today I interview R5Don4, known as Don in real life. I met Don when I attended my first X-Wing Tourney way back in the Kessel Run days. He was the guy who advertised the event on the FFG forum. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have attended. After meeting Don, I started to use the Star Wars Gaming Ontario Facebook group to find out about local events. He’s a tireless promoter of the game, a very nice guy and an excellent player. I thought it appropriate to start this article series with Don who’s been there since day 1 of wave 1 and growing the game in Southern Ontario like no one else around.
