Might be a traveling player. My ex told me some players who play on a professional level sometimes just kinda tour around, crashing on couches and paying for food with tournament prizes. Apparently that's what Captain Jack did ten years ago in Europe. (Also a quiet type. Managed to nearly wordlessly order croquettes with mustard on a bun, a typical Dutch snack food, which he seemed to like very much.)

Nexon (yes, that Nexon) is making a Ghost in the Shell FPS.  While it looks decent enough I do have to wonder...why Nexon...

Never heard of them, so could you provide context on them?

They're a Korean MMO giant.  Probably best known for MapleStory, but they've made a lot of games.  Pretty much all of their games have been free-to-play...and heavily criticized for being the "bad" kind of free-to-play.  Though I don't actually play any of them myself so I can't really say more about that.

I've played some Nexon games and they are terrible at microtransactions.
First of all, it's not really micro.
Second, they make their shit so random, you pay money on the unknown.
There is no way to get want you want specifically, you have to gamble eternally until one day you get lucky enough to get want you wanted.

I forget, were these the devs that had been making that bizarre Megaman X MMO a few years back?

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

A quick search in Google says that it was a joint project between Capcom and Neowiz Games.
