* TeamUK Player Profiles (Part 1) *
So, as some of you may be aware, it’s the IQA Global Games this coming Saturday (19th July).
You may also know that QUK have been putting up TeamUK player profiles as part of their countdown towards the games.
What you may not know is that I was the one that made them and have been publishing them for the last 2 and bit weeks.
It’s been a fun little
last minute project that I have been working on. QUK wanted something which would get community excited about the Global Games whilst also getting them to support the final 21 who were going to compete.
Originally, I was going to try and do a proper profile for each of the 21 (a bit like what Team Australia have been doing) but opted for a simple B&W photo with three words which summed up that player.*
So here’s the first 10 I did. The order of players (incidentally) was deliberate. I wanted a nice spread of gender / geo locations throughout so it did not feel like QUK were favouring one set of players over the rest.
So yeah - I’m fairly happy with the way they came out and they seemed to be well received by the UK community.
Shall post up another 10 players tomorrow!

* I mean - Would YOU try to message 21 people (who have other things on their mind) at the last minute to get them to write a bio about themselves? There would be chaos!
