    Shockto - Join! WAR [APPROVED]

    Post by Shockto on Fri Sep 05, 2008 2:10 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most interest in playing?
    A) Warhammer Online

    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?
    A) Yes

    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]
    A) Yes, 35

    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]
    A) Yes... and some rejected ones

    Q)
    Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were
    you recruited by someone? If so, who?

    A) no

    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]
    A) Shockto -- I have a guildportal name already (Shocktor), but your forum doesn't seem to be linked to that part of your site...

    Q) Gender: [female, male]
    A) Male

    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]
    A) Baltimore, MD

    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]
    A) Ten Ton Hammer forum (WAR forum)

    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?
    A) no

    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?
    A) no

    Q)
    We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good?
    You're a standup comedian you say?

    A) It's good... I can take a joke and almost deliver it back.

    Q)
    What other MMO's have you played if any: [Acquired a few skills from
    some other games eh? Tell us about them]

    A) For MMOs that I've played for 2 years or more, I started with PlanetSide, then City of Heroes, then WoW... with a few smaller ones mixed in (and some bigger ones that never took). I'm still active in WoW.

    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]
    A) I looked around at a bunch of guilds and I feel you all are the closest fit to what I'm looking for (understanding of real-life issues and time restraints, for example... and you all seem to have a good sense of humor) -- and you seem to be pretty ready for WAR. From my experience in other MMOs, being in a good guild makes all the difference in how enjoyable the game can be.

    Q)
    Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some
    hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.

    A) I'm a web developer (programming, designing, etc..) and I like to run to stay in shape... I have three kids (vary from ages 6 to 14) that keep me pretty busy...

    Please remember to register here on these forums.
    A) I failed my first test already... I registered BEFORE filling this out. Sad I registered as Shokto and changed it to Shockto to fill this out...


    Q) Do you have any questions for us?

    Are you going to have both a Destruction and Order guild in WAR? Do you all use Vent? Did you all have a guild in WoW, or did you skip that?

    Greetings Adventurer -

    You are Baltimore resident #2. We have #1 here already and he claims to be M. Phelps (unconfirmed).

    Welcome to the forums.

    I'm curious as to why you're leaving WoW to try out WAR.

    Cheers.

    I'm not leaving WoW completely -- I have a good guild over there. I'm going to be playing it less, but I have time for both games since all I'm doing in WoW at this point is grinding honor and going on the occasional raid.

    Phelps went to my high school (many years after I graduated... but that's my claim to fame) ...

    HFC didn't have a guild in WoW. Brakk can let you know what all the guilds were that HFC has left a mark in.

    It's ok -- I was just curious in case there was a conflict of interest in WoW... my primary focus will be WAR when it comes out.

    Your web designing skill set, does this also include flash sites?





    Tells us a good story, perhaps one about an embarrassing moment. Or, maybe some prank you pulled in school back in the day.


    I think some of us are still trying yo get a "feel" for your personality.

    Yeah, I re-read my app and realized it was a bit dry... especially compared side-side with Entropy/Mixa's app (on a side note... I'm wondering if he's the same Entropy I knew in CoH...)

    To answer your first question -- I have done Flash sites in the past... as far as my web skills are concerned, I'm like a swiss army knife -- I can do almost anything, but not great at any one thing. Just like if you need to unscrew something with a screwdriver, you don't seek out a swiss army knife... but if you have it on-hand, then great... I think I just insulted myself and my web abilities. :-/

    ...so, a good story.... or an embarrassing one...

    There was a time when I was at McDonald's -- I ordered two super large drinks and they put it in one of those cardboard carrying things that are not meant for the really big drinks (as I found out) . I turned and one of the drinks fell out and exploded on the ground and hit me and the people around me. The cashier person said 'no problem.. we'll take care of it' and got me a new one...

    So, I turned completely around and started to walk, and the other one started to fall -- I tried to break the fall with my leg, but instead it actually rolled (on its side) down my leg and continued (at a very fast pace) to roll away until it hit the trash/half wall thing at the back of the line and exploded... all over the other half of the line behind me. This time the cashier said nothing as they got me a new drink and took the cardboard thing away... I asked it I can help clean up (I at least threw away the cups and the ice), but they said they couldn't allow it, so, I carried my drinks out by hand... which I should've done to begin with instead of inadvertently throwing two soda bombs...

    It was quite a while before I went back to that McDonald's...

    One more thing to say about what I will contribute to the guild -- I'm the type of player who will drop what I'm doing to help out another guildmate... there are times when I've put my kids to bed and they keep getting up... in those situations, I'll say I'm afk on and off too much, but I'll help once I know I won't have to get up and get water... or a tissue... ... or turn the fan on... or keep one of my kids from jumping on top of the one whos actually trying to sleep... etc...
