The Two Awesome Gamers, also known as TAG, is an Australian gaming-duo, formed by WhiteLite (Alex Delfrate) and J3ZA (Jeremy Hearn). They currently have about 177,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel . They are most known by their Minecraft survival map series Skyblock , whose 1st episode was uploaded on October 5, 2011 (has over 3,500,000 views), and has ended in the 58th episode.
They're commonly known in their fan base for not being very good at survival (as shown in their whole Skyblock series), but very good at First Person Shooters, especially at Battlefield 3, as well as their abusive use of the word "dicks".
WhiteLite attends a double degree with a PTD course in Mechanical Engineering on RMIT, and J3ZA is getting a Bachelor of Information Technology – Industry Scholarship Program on Swinburne University. Sassal is studying a Bachelor of Information Technology at La Trobe University.
J3za left Two Awesome Gamers in early May 2014. Sassal came in to replace him.
They first met in Year 12 English class, when their teacher forced them into seating next to each other. It took them a while to start talking with each other. The first time they hung out off school, they played Modern Warfare 2.
They were watching a lot of Machinima, and thought "Hey, we can do this as well!". They started to record it as well and see if anyone would watch it. Their first video was a Minecraft multiplayer gameplay and commentary, uploaded on October 15, 2010.
They started a cummunity Minecraft server when they hitted 1000 subscribers. Initially it was hosted on J3ZA's computer, but they started to grow and they had to get a server host. The server is no longer up.
"How did they get the name TAG": they wanted a cool acronym, so they came up with "TAG", which means in a game, if you don’t shoot and kill the opponent in one shot, it’s called a TAG. Then, J3ZA came up with what that stood for (Two Awesome Gamers).
