T.E.O is the initials for my real name so I used Teo back when I was on IRC all the time. Then I started to have problems registrering for anything online since it's not really a rare name, so I added ball.
The first Guild Wars. about 3000 hours I think. I found a great guild that I was in for 3 years. In the end I felt like I just logged in every night to chat for a bit and didn't care about the game at all. Then some of the people I chatted the most with quit, so I did too.
