Sentinal [MIB]
Name: Trent Boyd


Moniker: Sentinal

Sex: Male

Country of Residence: USA

Education: Associates degree in Engineering, currently a Senior in Mechanical Engineering at NCSU working towards a Bachelors degree.

How would we know you: I'm pretty well known in Starsiege as a scripter, mapper, modder, and general tech-guy. I am the squad leader and co-founder of the Starsiege Men In Black, an old squad that is known for their vast knowledge of the inner workings of the game.

Favourite Games: Starsiege, Earthsiege 2, Uprising, America's Army, Tribes 1 (Annihilation Mod), Starcraft, F-22 Lightning 3, Half-Life, Need For Speed III, Mechwarrior 4, and Tribes 2. Did I leave anything out?

Gaming Roles: Well that depends on what kind of game I happen to be playing. In FPS games, I like to be the sniper or the covert infiltrator. I like stealth and the element of surprise. In vehicle-based games, I generally stick to the slower, heavier vehicles. In RTS games, I tend to be the player who initally builds up a defense and amasses a huge army to overtake the enemy. You rarely ever see me use rush tactics.
