Whats in a name
My name Gunter Severloh I created in 2007 for my WW2 realism unit in the game Red orchestra, a WW2 pc game based on the OstFront or Eastern front.
The name Gunter I got from a German WW2 MG42 machine gunner on the Eastern front, the soldier's actual name is
he wrote a book a diary he recorded during the war, the name of his book is called "Blood Red Snow"
I took his first name, and then the 2nd part of my name Severloh
I got from
Heinreich Severloh was known as the "Beast of Omaha", a MG42 machine gunner on the Omaha Beach.
So my name is based off of 2 WW2 German soldiers.
In the Game Red orchestra I played as machine gunner almost all the time.
My Former Clan & Realism Units
In March 2007 I had formed a clan with a close friend and my gaming buddy who at the time I had met in 2006 through the Red Orchestra PC game. Our clan we had name the 187th, we had our own website and went to matches, had 2 game servers at the time,we were members of the ROLeague, a tournament for clans.
We had a number of clan members most from the USA but some from Brazil, Denmark, Newfoundland, and other countries, we had a rough number of 12 active and 16 regular members.
Grenadier Regiment 187
Our clan the 187th reformed into a realism unit portraying the Grenadier-Regiment 187.
This unit I was leader, We fought in the 3SA realism Campaign as well as had many realism matches with other units.
We also entered the realism campaign TOC - Theater of Conflict realism Campaign in 2009.
3rd Panzer-grenadier Division
In march 2010 we had reformed/reorganized once again to portray a historical German unit that better fits our combat style in the game. This unit I was leader also at the time we were involved in a realism campaign and had regular realism matches, and nights with other realism units.
On June 1st 2010, I had decided to disband the unit, as I had enough of some of the politics, as well as stress trying to maintain, organize the unit, but most of all because I was rather bored of the game we were playing, as we had played the game everyday in every spare time we had, so i guess you can say we played it to death.
Our website seen here: http://3rdpanzergrenadierdivision.webs.com/
was converted to a WW1 and WW2 History website, but has been erased as I had decided to build a new website with a new name specific to my interests in WW1 and WW2.
BIS series games
I had originally started in the series with the Demo of Operation Flashpoint when it first came out,
found the demo to be very hard, for the type of games i was used to at the time, so I put it down for about a month and then came back to it and fell in love with it.
