Evan is a web person, marketing person, avid gamer, and the other half of eXtelevision, LLC. He’s also decloaking right behind you. With bananas.
No one really knows where carpwrist came from. We’re pretty sure he lived in Germany as an army brat for 15 years, but he speaks surprisingly little German. He moved to Washington state in 2004 and got his degree in recreational pharmaceuticals from The Evergreen State College. When he’s not pubbing with the Axl community, he’s practicing with his UGC Highlander team as the Medic. He’s a slut for tasty Cascadian beers and a vegetarian, which for some reason still astonishes people.
You’ll likely find him at DamnLAN, InfernaLAN, PDXLAN, the farmer’s market, or a tavern that has microbrews on tap and a ping pong table. He’s got a tattoo of a carp on his wrist and has a weird fascination with sea life. Seriously, ask him about his tentacles.

Duder is a caster, producer, contributor and Jack of all trades (but master of none) within the eXtv family. He played competitive for 4 years prior to realizing he’s better at talking about the game than playing it. Outside of gaming, he has a Marketing degree from Illinois State University, lives in central Illinois, works for a tech company as a project manager and enjoys adult beverages on “occasion.”

Mikal++ is a blight upon the otherwise untarnished reputation of eXtv. Cast in the fires of Mt Doom, and hewn from the bones of the stillborn, Mikal’s rise and subsequent fall from the godthrone of ultimate unquestioned power has been adapted into the books many people now consider to be religious texts. Currently living in exile deep in the bowels of the earth with nothing more than a computer and a fiber internet connection, he assists eXtv with production, graphics, casting, general organizational tasks, manual labor, shady business practices, and plots for world domination.

Monty is a server manager and event organizer for eXtv. He also runs a TF2 community called The Rabbit Hole, which has somehow stayed afloat for over 3 years. (Visit us at www.trhservers.com) Outside of that, Monty works in a bakery somewhere in Nebraska and is capable of playing the tuba.
My name is Terry, but after an unfortunate incident at a strip club in 1996 I was forever branded as “Naughty T”… (It’s a long story)
I’ve been playing games since the days of Atari 2600, skinning since Quake and playing TF2 since 2007…
I started photoshopping in 2001 when I got my first copy of PaintShop Pro… lol
I’m a redneck from Florida, former cop, bouncer, and prison guard…
I currently work for Best Buy installing car stereos…
Salamancer started shoutcasting Team Fortress 2 matches recently, and joined up with eXtv when Duder accidentally left the door open one day. He’s committed to showcasing exciting TF2 moments and improving the spectating experience for competitive play. He also runs the SalTV series, focused on helping players improve their game. When he’s not casting for eXtv, he often does other competitive casts or just fools around at www.twitch.tv/fatmop – check it out!
Dr.shdwpuppet MD, Ph.D, OB/GYN and professor of TF2ology is a TF2 player, analyst, mentor, writer, shoutcaster and video producer for eXtelevision. He first joined the eXtv staff to help with their coverage of ESEA-S9 IM playoffs but no one quite knows how to best get rid of him. So now he joins Duder and Salamancer for casting shenanigans, produces video intros and makes mentoring videos with an analytic twist. When casting, Dr.shdwpuppet can often be heard explaining, analyzing, over analyzing and putting Duder to sleep while explaining concepts and serving up strategic analysis for every level of viewer. When not dishing out heals or knowledge, he likes to dish out tasty food and walk his giant bear of a dog. He names the TF2 god, sage and medic guru Sigma as an inspiration and claims as his motto “Only through deep analysis can we find inspiration for anything.”
He can be found at twitter.com/drshdwpuppet and lurking the communityfortress forums.
On the battlefield, We Make Good Tea can never make up his mind on what class to play. Regardless though, Team Fortress 2 has always been his favourite game since he started playing 3 years ago (although most of it was spent trading hats). Since day one, he’s been trying to create the perfect concoction of tea to improve his game. As of now, he’s just giving his enemies a taste of his Mango Slush bubble tea. Got a request of what tea you want to get served with? Be sure to tell him or else he’ll just shoot at you. Yeah… those projectiles he’s throwing? They aren’t rockets, stickies, pipes or bullets or anything. They’re all tapioca pearls; squishy, but deadly.
Aside from finding that perfect tea, We Make Good Tea studies Graphic Design at university and is putting it to use here at eXtelevision. Check out his stuff:
