Today BLGaming held the last of their BLGals tryouts. Myself and the rest of BLGaming would like to congratulate all of the lovely ladies who made the team and also thank all who tried out. It is my privilege to introduce to you, the woman of BLGamings all female competitive Smite team, BLGals!
Mid - Hollahviing
Support - FrozenSorrow/Raekin
Carry - xSaphx/Seronis
Subs - Clumsyblond/Florastar
After all was said and done, we sent some questions to each of them so that everyone could get to know them a bit. I will post a few answers to each question. If you would like to read each individual team members responses, the links will be below.
BLGaming: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
FloraStar: My name is Mary Ann, but I've gone by Flora on the internet for more than a decade now. I'm from Florida, and am going to be a full-time teacher starting in August, while going for my Masters in Secondary Mathematics Education. I'm known on You-tube for making modded Minecraft videos, and have six adorable ratties.
FrozenSorrow - Hi my names Amanda I just recently moved to Orlando, Florida. I'm currently not attending school because I took a break but I hope to be going back soon. I was going for a degree in nursing.
BLGaming: Did you play any other MOBA's before Smite?
Hollahviing: None at all. I typically always gamed on x-box when it came to gaming before Smite.
xSaphX: No, but I did try LoL and Dota for a very very short time. I did not like the Click to Move games, and like the control I have over my characters in Smite.
BLGaming: What was it about Smite specifically that drew you to it?
Seronis: A friend recommended Smite to me, and I've been hooked since. I really like the community, the ever evolving game, and all the fun times I've had trying all the Gods.
FrozenSorrow: My boyfriend forced me to play Smite one night and ever since I have been hooked. It reminds me a lot of a first person shooter.. I think that's why I like it so much.
BLGaming: How long have you been playing Smite?
Hollahviing: Since early September 2012.
Seronis: Less than 2 months.
BLGaming: What is your favorite role to play?
FloraStar: Mid and Support, though I sometimes AD Carry as Neith.
xSaphX: Carry, but am learning more about Support/Tank. Wish Aphro was used more in competition. She is a lot of fun! I'm a healer at heart, and always have been in each MMO I've played.
BLGaming: How does it make you feel to be on the first ever all female Smite team?
Clumsyblond: ~ I'm very excited! Girls have always been the minority in the gaming world so being able to represent this amazing group is humbling. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of more female players coming over the the gaming dark side :p
FrozenSorrow: Excited. I can't wait to actually play with other people the same gender for a change.
BLGaming: What are your goals in competitive Smite and competitive gaming in general?
xSaphX: Learning more about playing the game, and how to counter what the opponents do. I've played in the solo que for quite sometime and I would rather play with a team.
Clumsyblond: ~ To kick butt like everyone else!! Hahaha just messing. I'm a pretty competitive person so of course I want to be the best that I can, but I also love the social part of gaming. So I really have enjoyed meeting people that share a similar interest and look forward to meeting more along the journey however far it takes me.
