About me / my real life
Hi, I am the guy behind this website.
My name is Lutz and I was born in August ’84 in Schweinfurt, Germany. Since 1990 I live in and around Hamburg where I also went to school and later completed my vocational training as an IT-Technician.
After that I went through a couple of jobs and was employed as an Electrician, System administrator, salesman and PC/Notebook technician. I am currently working as a specialist for a telecommunications company and basically make sure the customer data in the backend matches what they’ve ordered (or rather, what the system thinks they have ordered).
During my spare time I keep myself busy with my three cats, my wife or just playing games. I also do some design and webdesign backend work on the side.
I am a gamer since sat in front of a PC for the first time. It began with stuff like Sokoban, PacMan (on PC) and Tetris (Gameboy). In my youth it continued with Doom, Quake and later Counter-Strike. With CS 1.6 and after I went through several clans we managed to get ESL (former name of the ESPL) Rank 64 (DE).
After I started playing the MMORPG “Ragnarok Online” more or less at the same time I started my vocational training I quit the “professional” scene in the FPS genre. In Ragnarok you had enough competitive possibilities with the War of Emperium and later the Battlegrounds. Five years later, after the game lost most of its charm, I sold all my inGame currency and joined the gamers of another MMORPG: World of Warcraft.
In WoW there were enough raids and arena-games to keep me occupied for a quite a long time, but after they changed all classes, spells and talents yet again with “Mists of Pandaria” I took a break from the game. Other than with Ragnarok, I didn’t gift my account to friends and just put it on ice for the time being just to reactivate it when the addon “Warlords of Draenor” launched. I continued to play until mid “Legion” and quit for good after.
During my break I wasn’t on hiatus and played other games like AION or TERA. I also tried out League of Legends and even play it to this day, even if not as frequent as a few month back. LoL wasn’t my first MOBA, but it was way more fun than DOTA2 or Smite. I am surely no professional (Silver I was my highest rank, I think) but for me competitive PvP isn’t as important as it was during my Counter-Strike time.
I’ve also played a lot of Destiny 2, Tom Clancy’s The Division (1+2), Divinity: Original Sin 2, APEX Legends and EVE Online.
I’ve also played some Mobile games. Namely Ark of War and Epic Seven. I’ve sold my AoW account after playing for about 2 years because the game got boring and repetetive. I am still playing Epic Seven on Europe Servers.

I registered shark5060.net only to supply friends with some (rare) downloads. Later it was a placeholder site for a forum and even later a blog. But since I am probably the laziest blogger in this world I decided to just use it for some information about me, my characters and my PC.
