Who is the Wocky? and a DISCLAIMER

ABOUT ME, “theWocky”

Hi, there.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a journalist and I do not profess to be one. This blog is about my perception and opinion on all matters and should not ever be taken as the defacto truth. I offer an opinion and feelings about things based on things I have seen/heard or the way I’ve experienced a certain situation in life or on the internet. I share interesting thoughts, commentary on things I have seen and heard. I try to fact-check as much as I can, but I’m human and can be led astray. If an article here perks your interest, then from there, like me, you need to do your own research and determine the truth. Please pop me a mail if I’m factually incorrect. My purpose is merely to entertain and give you my personal opinion. This is not to say I fabricate stories just for the sake of click-bait. This is not a #fakenews website. My intentions are sincere and not to mislead. Opinions and articles are always based on something I have seen/heard and just offer my opinion.

I suffer from insomnia and dyslexia – I tend to sometimes leave out thoughts, sentences and sometimes screw up when trying to get the correct meaning across depending on how tired I am when I wrote it. If something makes you made, generally I’ve screwed up somehow – I’ll catch it on my 10th or so edit of the post – maybe the 20th – depending on when I edit it. I’m editor and author. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at sentence and missed a grammatical error. I also tend to sometimes make words phonetically – for example, I may say “floor” instead of “flaw”. At least I’m not like my brother who used to write things that could only be read in a mirror. Took him years to fix that. I can, however, recite the alphabet forwards and backwards with relative ease.

A guy on the internet. I use the gamer tag of “theWocky” aka “Wocky”. I am also known amongst my old guild mates in World of Warcraft as “Kry” which is short for “KryHavoc”

I am a 40 something year old South African who runs a successful IT business here in South Africa.

I have been gaming since I can remember – from my first ZX-81 in the 1980’s and then after I took over my brother’s ZX Spectrum 48k – yes. It’s been a while. As I’ve gotten older, some skills have grown, some have faded.

I youtube for fun. I spend a lot more on this hobby at the moment than I make in YouTube advertisment revenue.

I enjoy blogging. I enjoy making videos. I enjoy gaming.

So, I hope you stay awhile and listen, watch and subscribe / follow.

~ Wocky

 

HISTORY

The WockyCC YouTube channel was launched in 2012 doing a RIFT preview video and then hundreds of RIFT videos followed. Real Life issues left the channel to being mostly in limbo from late 2014 to mid 2016.

Initially, he had over 400 videos on his channel, but after reflection and wanting fresh, better quality content, he cleared the majority of these.

Wocky now focuses on other MMORPG’s and has cleared most older content off of his channel after he relaunched the channel in about September 2016 focusing mainly on LIVE interaction and streaming via YouTube.

MMO Gaming Experience: 2005 to 2010, Originally started his first MMORPG in EvE Online, then moved onto World of Warcraft in September of 2006 in a guild on Bloodscalp US called “Barley ‘n Hops” with a Tauren shaman called Krykor, then moving over to EU and playing a druid called KryHavoc starting GM of Beyond on Karazhan EU – a two-day semi-hardcore guild – a multitude of characters played from Vanilla, Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King in World of Warcraft. Briefly played RIFT as a GM in Toxic Psychosis.

Having been out of the raiding scene for a while, he focuses on casual play, narration of lore and immersing himself in story driven MMORPG games.
