Trivia
He is an experienced wiki editor and administrator at The Robot Wars Wiki under the name Helloher.

G.K. is a member on the Gametechmods forums. He acquired RA2 and joined GTM in November 2009 and is now a capable builder, despite numerous spells not playing the game. He doesn't feel inspired by any particular builder for his building style, but elements of the styles of Fracture and Scrap Daddy can be found in some of his bots.

He has a DSL showcase here, a Stock showcase here and an Ironforge showcase here. He has 5 teams in NAR AI, Team Hell, srezinwP, Team 42, Team G.K. & Odds and Ends.

He is very helpful around the forums and also contributes to the wiki. He hosted Wheely Tag after Mouldy King Bash experienced technical problems, and has become known as the Tournament Paramedic, helping members through tournaments by AI'ing bots and/or making splashes and/or filming matches. As well as this, he has completed his own tournaments Back to the Beginnings, and the sequels, BTTB 2, BTTB 3, BTTB 4 & BTTB V. Currently hosting The RA2 League. He became a Tournament Mod in October 2011 and remains so despite several long spells of inactivity.

Skill

G.K. is a decent builder. He has been champion in 3 DSL tournaments and 1 stock tournament, as well as quite a few second place finishes. Between 2010 and 2013 skinned basically all his bots with the same thing. Ranked 25th in BBEANS, was 5th in CCIV and 16th in BTTB.

Stock

Very good at the glitches. Likes HW popups. Not the most creative but is working on it.

DSL

Isn't at the highest level, but decent and has numerous teams in NAR AI. As of 2015, has basically stopped building competitively.

Ironforge

Has not built much, but thinks it's a bunch of fun.

Modding

Reasonably experienced at GMF editing and has done some .py and .gib edting development too. Made the Twiiisted Arena, and has released BTTB AI.
