An intro to Fakkeltalk with Jonni & Jas; Arie Within!

Welcome to Fakkeltalk with Jonni and Jas. You will see us playing under the names “Jonni The Juciest Jew” and “Psunfragga!”.  We’re here to provide you with your weekly dose of entertainment, straight from the Fakkel Brigade core. You’ll find short interviews, interesting TF2 related discussions, the odd bits of gossip (He said what?!), embarassing recordings and more information on whats going on with the TF2 community. This weeks blog is a short introduction to us, with some added Arie for fun.

Jonni: Hi this is Psunfragga (Jas), we know eachother from her period as caller/medic of the former FB2. A talented medic with solid ideas about tactics and a strong sense of leadership. Currently without a team, Psun mentors clans and mercs at  high level to keep herself busy. She lives and studies in the UK but her roots lie in India. This lady has a very outspoken opinion about anything that crosses her path and she’s not shy about it. I think the differences between us will make for a nice inspiration and let’s not forget, she packs a mean bite. ^^
In short, the perfect partner to write a blog with.

Jas: Jonni the Juciest Jew is in fact a Roman Catholic despite his name leading many people astray. Jonni is the co-founder of Fakkel Brigade, starting out with a joint hanging out his mouth as a no aim scout and still remaining much the same. His hax are under the radar of the ETF2L anti cheat admins because well… he is THE admin. Living in Holland within spitting distance from Exfane, Jonni has a variety of talents ranging from being a dutch speaking Israeli to working for Electronic Arts . Jonni’s soft tones can easily be found over the Fakkel Brigade mumble; Many people have ruined their t-shirts and keyboards over touching themselves while listening to the Juciest member of FB. Arie, Fakkel Brigade’s scheming scout who is now used to this speaks to us:

Jonni: Where did you first start out with TF2?

Arie: I first started with the Orange Box, bought for Portal and noticed TF2. At the time [GOT] had a dutch forum with a post of starting server. I began playing on quite a nice public there. Joined [GOT1] clan in April 2008 as a scout.

Jonni: Thats pretty late.

Jas: Hey i only got TF2 then!

Arie: Ah finally someone noobier than me. I played in the end of season 3 for [GOT1].

Jonni: wait, you only played a bit before us?!

Arie: Uh.. yeah…

Jonni: OH! I thought we got a veteran scout.

Arie: And I played in the dutch national team. They asked me to fill in and I did. That’s how I came to know the horrible pricks of FB when Demourge was still in there. FB ruined the first trials of Team Netherlands with their spamming over voice comms and being mean – Demourge was the worst!

*Arie and Jonni go down memory lane*

Arie: Yeah I was pretty ashamed. Hahahaha. I joined FB 255 days ago, to be exact.

Jas: How do you feel about playing scout for FB?

Arie: Its the best, fun class to play, especially in the scouts department. Fakkel Brigade seems to look like the underdogs in division one, especially our scouts. We hope to prove a lot of people wrong.

Jonni: But you do more than just play for FB, you’re the technical backbone. Share some more.

Arie: Back in the day when FB were small and sad, I would use my server to play our games but there were very little bandwidth for it so we ended up renting it.

Jonni: After no more than 30mins, the tf2 servers + mumble were running, our porn ftp…

Arie: Shhh! shhh!!

Jonni: Ah shit. **Link to super secret porn stash!!!!**

Jas: So Arie tell us something different about yourself.

Arie: Rotterdam is not a shit city – sorry I really needed to get the word out.

Jonni: Exfane and I are convinced its a shit city. Only 15 dutch people!

Arie: *desperate* No no it’s about 50-50!

Jas: Got a deep dark secret about yourself Arie?

Arie: Well… I go to nerd camp… every summer… for 11 days. … *whispers* It’s awesome.

Jas: Whats the worst experience you’ve ever had with a girl?

Arie: Uhhhhh. Nothing.

Jonni: Hahaha. So Arie does nothing naughty with his girlfriend.

Arie: Hey! I didn’t say that.

*Vibrating sounds from Arie*

Jas: What is that?

Jonni: The vibrator.

Arie (on a quick subject change): Unlike Exfane and Jonni, I have a real job so I need to go to bed. Night night!

Thanks a lot to Arie for a rather disturbing insight into his technical genius like mind. Jonni needs to run off to the Jewmobile for some hummus and bread, see you next week! xx
