Denied Almainyny's Membership Application

Discussion in 'Denied Applications' started by Almainyny, May 7, 2012.

  1. Almainyny

    Almainyny New Applicant

    Main IGN:
    Zalahiel
    Do you agree to abide by the Rules and Code of Conduct?:
    Yes
    Which age group do you fall in?:
    18-21
    Gaming History:
    My favorite games, for the most part, are RPGs. I've played all manner of them, from Legend of Dragoon on the PS1, to Mass Effect 3 on the XBOX 360. I've been gaming since I was a small child, probably 8 years old, maybe? It's hard to remember. The first MMO I played, as it happens, was Final Fantasy XI. Enjoyable, for the most part, but I could never find a good Linkshell group to chat with/play with, which was disappointing.
    Previous Guilds?:
    I was a part of the guild called "Force Academy" (a bunch of guys from Star Wars: Galaxies, among other things, who were mainly RPers, but very interested in PvP), before the game launched, and a bit into when the game actually launched, on the Lord Adraas server (or something close to that). I enjoyed the family-like atmosphere, but the rush to level seemed to make everyone too busy to chat. I eventually left because I had no way of subscribing (this was before the time cards came out).
    Which game are you most interested in playing with Ascendancy?:
    Star Wars: The Old Republic
    Your expectations of Ascendancy?:
    My expectations are rather simple. All I'm looking for is a place for my character to call home; a place where I can chat with other people while levelling (and make the occasional request for help, if required), and a place to play with those same people when I get ready for PvP and PvE End-Game content.
    How did you hear about Ascendancy?:
    Our Recruiting Thread
    Your preferred name?:
    I'd like to be addressed as Allen, my first name IRL. It's certainly much easier than trying to pronounce my character's name (Zalahiel) or trying to pronounce Almainyny, that's for sure.
    Any children joining us with you?:
    No children will be joining with me (since I have none).
    Any questions, concerns, comments?:
    Edit: Actually, I felt it should be known that my character is not yet on the server you guys play on. I am actually attempting to find a guild before making a character on it, simply because I'd like to have a community for him to call home before I start making him. If that will be a problem, please, let me know.

    Hi Allen, thanks for your interest in Ascendancy! It's certainly no problem at all if you're not currently on this server. In fact, I think it's great that you're taking the time to look for a guild that works for you and are willing to move to another server to join.

    Now that you've applied, we can start getting to know each other and see if this is the guild for you and if you're a good fit here in Ascendancy.

    We ask new applicants to come join us in Mumble (info here) and start getting to know folks. There's no rush on this, simply as you can when on your current gaming schedule. This is an important phase of the application process as we want to give you the opportunity to get to know us and learn about this community as well as give us an opportunity to get to know you and see if you'll be a good fit. During this time we will not be evaluating your game play (so don't feel people will be watching you with a critical eye or anything) but rather trying to judge how you will fit within the community.

    Look forward to talking, and hopefully grouping with you soon!​

    Thank you all for the kind replies! I'm hoping to get back into the game today, but right now, I'm trying to get some college federal aid stuff figured out. Hopefully I'll have a few hours in-game to be able to get things done, and maybe talk with some of you on Mumble.

    Also, in the event that someone reads this, if you're of the appropriate level, I would love to get at least one Black Talon run done before I leave for work (10 AM). If not, that's fine too.

    Welcome! Let me know if you're on. I'll zip you through BT. If you'd rather go through the entire FP normally, I have an alt I can log on to group with you.

    Hiya Allen!!

    I'm glad to see you chose to give Ascendancy a try! As Dave explained, just hang with us in Mumble and let's get to know each other and go from there!

    Look forward to seeing you soon!

    Since I didn't get the chance to get Black Talon done before, I'd like to get a crack at it today. I've got Mumble working, and I'll be connected to it shortly, so if you feel like running it with me, please, feel free to tell me there!

    Sounds good Allen!

    I'll keep an eye out for you in Mumble, though my kids will be home from school soon. Once they're home I'm usually with them with homework.

    Sorry guys, it's been quite a while. You know how it is, work and school and all that. I'm hoping to get on and talking to you guys either tomorrow or Sunday, as those are my 2 days off, this week.

    Thus far, I can safely say that I've had some fun with you guys. Chatting with some of you on Mumble has been a good experience, and I look forward to more of it.

    No problem, Allen. We're about as laid back as it can get with understanding how RL can impact our gaming schedules but thanks for letting us know all the same. I'm glad to hear the time you've been able to spend with us has been enjoyable and we're certainly looking forward to gaming with you some more soon :)

    I apologize for the ridiculous amount of time I have been gone. While I am still very much interested, I'm afraid it may not be for SWTOR. I love the game to death, and while I do have the money to afford the monthly fee, the feeling of having to play because I'm paying monthly for it is keeping me from wanting to play it. That said, IIRC, you guys also plan on having some playing Guild Wars 2 (which is B2P), and I am also interested in that game, which I feel won't feel so much like a job I'm paying for, but more like a game that I can play casually with you guys.

    Anyway, that's the update on my cucrent status with you guys: I've had a lot of fun with you and still would like to interact with you guys more, but I think it'll be until GW2 that I really get to interact with you guys again.

    It's all good, Allen. No worries there at all and thanks for catching us up :)

    Are you planning to do any of the beta this coming weekend? I'm not sure how big we'll be in GW2 but, as you noted, there are several members who will be picking up the game and probably playing quite casually.

    Please don't be a stranger, hope to see you around soon :)

    Definitely stick around, as you know that we're more for community than for individual games!! As to GW2, I'm working saturday, so not so sure about the beta but I have pre-ordered the game so I'll be playing it very casually.

    See you around the forums, hop in mumble when you can and don't be a stranger!

    I won't be playing the beta, unfortunately, but I can tell you right now, based on the videos I've watched and the coverage I've seen on the game, that I'm definitely quite interested,and will definitely be pre-ordering when I get the chance.

    After a few months of inactivity, I finally hear some interesting news: that SWTOR is going free to play. I just may find a place in the game yet!
