Guild Ball WTC - Team Fun Sponge

Meet the Team

  • Team Captain: Loxam
  • Players: Jamie and Jay

Loxam:  I’m the Managing Director at Steamforged Games, I spend most of my days being part of the Development Team ensuring that our quality products go out the door on time and keeps SS Steamforged chugging forward! For the Guild Ball WTC I’m feeling like using...Hunters! I want a new challenge, and I love the look of the new Winter's Moon set so will be exploring them over my next few events, but for the meantime I’ve been playing my Solthecian themed Union, and after a decent showing at Vengeance 2017 they might come out instead. I cannot wait to meet the variety of people who play Guild Ball around the world and seeing how far the game myself and Mat worked on in our bedrooms has grown.

 

Jamie: I am one of the Senior Game Developers for Steamforged Games Ltd. I tend to spend most of my time working on Guild Ball development. This means that my work involves supervising the steps that each model takes on its way from concept to public release. I also spend quite a lot of time working with our playtesters as well as playtesting Guild Ball for myself.

I’m really excited to have the chance to play at the Guild Ball WTC because I love seeing all the weird and wonderful ways that people use our models on the Pitch. It’s a fantastic thing to see our fans take a new model and use it in cool ways we didn’t expect.

At the WTC, I’ll be going back to my roots and playing the first Guild that made me fall in love with this game, the Morticians. When it boils down to it, being an evil supervillain is something I find incredibly fun and you get a real sense of that when playing the spooks.

 

Jay: I’m Jay the Head of Operations for Steamforged Games and previously the Pundit Quartermaster so I have a history of engaging our wonderful community! I run day to day operations and fulfilment in the business which is a passion of mine (yet far removed from the cool jobs like designing games for a living and playing with toys!)

My history of Guild Ball goes all the way back to the beginning of season one where I spent the first 6 months playing every guild to get a good understanding of the game.  From there I settled on Shark Fishermen and involved myself heavily with the early tournament scene with relative success (although Giblin loves to remind me I never won an event!) In season 2 I fell in love with my girl Fillet and that’s what I have been using ever since! For the WTC however I feel in need of a change….Either reverting back to the mighty Shark or something new entirely…I have a tendency of changing my mind at the last minute!!

I can’t wait to get to the WTC and spent time meeting you all, catching up with old friend I have made though Guild Ball and playing games and having fun! That’s what it is all about for me.
