Start your Raid Journey Today!

Meet the Team – HellHades!


Over the coming weeks, we’re going to be diving deep into the HH Gaming staff, and giving the community an insight into who we are outside of creators, and what we actually do, as you may know some of our faces from videos and streams, some of us do not actually create video content and have a more behind the scenes role.

This will be a great opportunity to get to know us all on a personal level and really connect with us.

Next up, the man himself, the face of HH Gaming – HellHades!

HellHades, who are you?

Hell Hades, an old gamer who thought it might be a good idea to do a few YouTube videos in November 2019! Seems I’m still doing them now! Running the show alongside Phixion, generally, I am the face of the Brand doing streaming and YouTube videos.

When and How did you get involved with HH Gaming?

Right at the very beginning!

When did you start playing RAID, and why?

I was a big WOW player for nearly 10 years. Whilst commuting to London for my Sales role I wanted a game on my phone that could scratch my itch for grinding, gearing, team selection, boss battles. April 2019 I found Raid and it did a decent job of exactly that.

Who’s your favourite Raid Champion, and Most Wanted Champion?

I love Acrizia, so much damage, so many uses. Insanely fun champion to mess around with.

I would really like to pull a Marishka to help me with the live arena coming up in Raid.

What got you into gaming? and what other games do you play?

World or Warcraft was an amazing game, I loved the variety of play styles, the big man organised raiding, min maxing gear and damage. Complex boss fights. All in all my Fav.

What’s your favourite game of all time – and why?

I have been fascinated by gaming since i was very young working my way from Target Renegade on the Amstrad 464, to XCOM, Settlers & Sensible soccer on the Amiga. Back when my internet was a snail I found my first online competitive game Rainbow 6 Raven Shield which made me fall in love with competitive gaming. I then went on to play games live Counter Strike, Star Wars Galaxies and WOW amongst others.

What do you do outside of RAID?

I’ve always played a lot of sport and still play in 3 Football teams. Also enjoy Pool and play in a competitive team. Outside I that I watch a lot of fantasy style TV and series, love Marvel films and spend a lot of time with family.

What’s your favourite Movie/TV Series?

Best TV Series is game of thrones, just epic story telling and a great blend of fantasy and characterisation. My favourite ever film is Matrix – first time watching it, I had no idea what was going on but loved every minute.

What’s your most memorable Holiday, and where would you like to go?

I was fortunate to take a group of high end chefs around the south island of New Zealand. Each day one of those chefs cooked an amazing meal and I got to see one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen.

I would love to visit Egypt and see the pyramids / history there. Also Vegas for very different reasons :D

HellHades Curveball: Are Aliens out there?

If they are not, we must be in the Matrix!

Anything else you’d like to add?

Its been a wild ride so far since I started creating content, going full time, doing maximum damage and I have a really dedicated community to thank for that! Long may it continue.
