I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.

  1. Links to the source information is the lowest criteria for credibility you can meet and still you don’t. This appears to be the only site claiming to know the patch notes so soon. Prove your worth and cite sources. Otherwise you’re just the crazy guy yelling conspiracy on the street corner. Who listens to that guy? No one. You can do better than those nutcases.
