About Me!
IMPORTANT: I'm a 10-time admin (see my résumé below), so people sometimes impersonate me to steal items. Check the URL to make sure you're on the right profile!
IMPORTANT: If your profile is private or empty, I will block you if you attempt to add me. I've gotten literally dozens of private profile scammer bots repeatedly adding me each day, sorry. You can leave a comment here and I will add you, though.

Hi, I'm Commander Schwegs, nice to meet you!

Dota 2 became my favorite game after The International 2013, and I was the UGC League Broadcasting Manager during 2014 & 2015. I've played 1,000+ games and spent thousands of hours following tournaments. It's great fun, even if I still miss plenty of last hits ;) I enjoy learning and discussing the advanced strategies and mechanics of all the characters and items. I have attended TI4, TI5, ESL NY, TI6, Boston Major, and TI7, and had the pleasure to meet Puppey, Black^, LD, TobiWan, Team Na'Vi/EG/VP, and many others! It was also great to meet so many friends in-person that I've met online. Go Na'Vi & VP!!! ;)

Before that, however, I was really into TF2! In fact, I played it from when it came out in 2007 until mid 2013. I was an admin for many TF2 servers, both playing servers and trading servers, and I also participated in competitive clans. When I wasn't busy doing that, you could usually find me inventing new ways to (lovingly) pwn n00bs on a 2fort server ;). I really enjoyed the trading community, and spent thousands of hours helping people safely conduct item-for-item and item-for-money trades from 2010-2013. Unfortunately, there were imposters who deceived people into giving them their items thinking it was me, but fortunately, there were far more people I was able to help! :) I had the privilege of visiting Valve in September 2012 along with Helen Angel (SteamRep) and Butane (SourceOP) to meet with Steam Support to talk about the trading community, along with meeting Robin Walker, Drunken F00l, and the TF2 dev team.

Hey Schwegs, It has been a long time! :P
I have a new account which is why this one had been offline for so long. Pretty sure I tried adding you, but that was a long time ago :P
