What would you say if someone offered you the chance to jump out of an airplane? If you’re anything like our lucky Mega Crate winner, Tim Schultz, you’d say without hesitation, “let’s do this!”
Tim was the winner of the December 2015 Mega Crate! Along with the chance to see the world from 25,000 feet above, Tim took home: An NVIDIA SHIELD Game Controller, Remote, and Android TV with Stand; 1 year subscription to GeForce Now; 1 year subscription to Netflix in 4K Ultra HD; plus an Star Wars Luke Skywalker Red Five X-Wing Pilot 1/6 Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles AND a Large Tech Dopp Kit from This Is Ground.
As a child, Tim dreamed about becoming an astronomer and loved anything to do with space. We were thrilled to be able to give a Looter like Tim the opportunity to take his first skydive. Alongside Tim was pro jumper Jeff Provenzano who as of 2015, had completed 16,000 skydives over his 21 years of experience.
When Tom Cassell, AKA “ProSyndicate” (gamer, clothing designer and thrill seeker), got word of the jump, he wanted to come along too!
Check out the footage of Tim’s skydiving experience!:
We recently followed up with Tim to see what he’s been up to, and how life has been since the big jump!
What was the best part of your skydiving experience?
It had to be the insane adrenaline rush for sure! The rush of free falling for that long and from that high is something I’ll never forget for sure.
Have you gone again since your first jump or made plans for another trip?
Not long after the dive, I did try to convince my friends and family to go on another jump with me, but I sadly couldn’t find any takers. I might just go anyway some years down the road but there aren’t any solid plans set at the moment.
What was it like hanging out with Syndicate?
I was actually amazed at how we were able to talk to one another as if we’d known each other for years, but I have a feeling that primarily from Syndicate’s experience in the public eye. It was cool though getting to talk with a fellow gamer, let alone a celebrity gamer.
Describe your skydiving experience in three words.
Exhilarating. Terrifying. Unforgettable.
What has been your favorite Loot Crate? (item or crate)
Favorite Shirt: Deadpool Tacos shirt
Favorite Figurine: Fallout 4 Vault Boy Bobblehead
Most Useful Item: Hearthstone Squeeze Ball
What do you geek out on?
Computer tech and games. I could probably discuss either subject for hours so long as someone is still willing to listen.
What video games are you currently playing?
- Overwatch (mostly this)
- Assassin’s Creed series
- King’s Quest (the new one)
- King’s Bounty: The Legend
- Divinity: Original Sin
