About Oz

ABOUT Oz

Hey guys, my name is Anthony aka Oz. I am a life long computer geek and gamer. In 1998, I bought a ATI Rage Fury graphics card from CompUSA. The graphics card came with Half-Life. As you will hear in this short bio, Half-life was one of the games that is responsible for changing the direction of my life forever.

Team Fortress Classic is a mod of Half-Life and was released in 1999. Also known as TFC, one of the games that redirected my life for about 8 years. During this time I competed in TFC leagues, organize clan match strategies, websites, forums, seo etc. My primary alias back then was pcfitness or pc.

In 2008, I registered ozgaming.net and turned it into a TF2 community that ended up with almost 1000 members. As we began to grow in popularity so would our Steam community. At the time Steam had 600+ members and about 350 on Google Plus+. Then Google drops a bomb on us and announces to shutdown Google Plus. That was the worst news for the community and is what broke it.

On a good note, the Team Fortress 2 community was insanely fun and everyone made a ton a friends. Was a great time for us! OzGaming | TF2 lasted for about 6 years and was pure fun. TFC and TF2 took a big piece of my life, a piece I never saw coming, but glad I gave it. Loved every bit of it and wouldn’t change a thing. In 2020, TF2 is still being played and is surprisingly picking up momentum again! TF2 is free to play so you should totally download it.

MY JOB

I was the TF2 community owner and the primary financial spine for about 7 years. I recruited a ton of members, who also recruited a ton of members, appoint admins, purchase servers, configure and maintain a few dedicated game servers. This included website design and hosting, photoshop art, layouts/graphics, seo etc.
