From: Lower Saxony Germany
Played games with an Amiga 500, Korean Peninsula, being my first real wargame. Amiga faded out but didn't have any money for a new pc after my car accident and tons of debt due to the accident.
Years later I met my Gf and she let me use her pc, while she was working 6 months in France. Bought Tillers War in the West, played most night after work for 6 hrs. Had no idea about Matrix. Then I bought and old pc and found Uncommon Valour for a discount price bought the game. Started the game and had no idea how to play it. Used my dial up modem to find help. Matrix was discovered.
Read the forums, had the nerve to post. Signed up and enjoyed the forums ever since. And yes my gf still lets me play the games I've bought, although I tell her, it's hard work ordering troops around a battlefield, counting the losses and feeling deep dispair for the fallen commrades.
