What are your in-game name and the origin of it? 

"TorchCad30" the origin of "Torch" goes back as far as Commodore 64 home computer January 1982.  I used to play the "A.C.E.: Air Combat Emulator" game for some reason "Torch" came to mind and stayed with me. The "Cad" part comes from my degree in Computer Aid Drafting using AutoCAD by Autodesk. The "30" is there because I couldn't select it without it because TorchCad was taken.   

How long have you been playing World of Warships? 

I started or tried playing back on or around June 2016 but my system couldn’t run the game as well during that time so I forgot about the game put it to the side. During the winter of  December 7, 2017, I came across an advertisement on the internet and decided to give it a try now having a better system and it worked. Been playing almost every day since then.      

What got you into playing World of Warships?

My late father (R.I.P.) is the reason why I played World of Warships. (1) He served in the USS Ranger (CV/CVA-61) the third of four Forrestal-class supercarriers built for the United States in the 1950s.  (2) He played the game (in-game name: MohaveRiver) for some time already I didn't know about it and to my surprise was after I text him a few screenshots of the game I'm playing. 

What is your favorite ship? Why? 

USS Ranger (CV/CVA-61) for reasons mentioned above. Knowing it is not the same Carrier that my father (R.I.P.) served but carries The Ranger’s name.
