New Faces - Introduction Thread

Hello all,

I fully understand that membership recruiting is closed until some point after launch, and understand that perfectly! These transition periods can be difficult, and taking on new members while learning the guild tools can be crazy making.

I thought I'd start a thread where those of us "on hold" could at least post a very brief introduction, so we aren't just popping up in other threads like party crashers.

I invite others that are in a similar status to me to add their intro here, rather than clutter up the boards with similar posts. We may not end up with SoF after launch, but we appreciate being welcome guests in these forums.

*bows*
Svan

************

Greetings SoF. I am a 53 year old female gamer. Primarily I've been in Lord of the Rings Online (LoTRO) for the last 5+ years, but I dabbled in Rift and Star Wars:TOR. I was LOTRO kin mate (guild mate) with a few SoF members or from affiliated guilds, and heard good things about the group.

I'm interested in GW2, although I didn't play the original. I have pre-purchased. I am really enthused about the difference in game-play mechanics--making the whole game more collaborative rather than trying to create private areas in order to control mobs and loot.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you.

It would be a good idea to name drop and state how you found your way here so people can launch their psychometric feeler bots.

You have those here? I need one.

Perivayne pointed me in the direction of these forms, don't know if he's called Borlek here or not, and the early years we played with Amy (before they established their own kinship). I believe they are all DOG, if I'm understanding the organizations right.

Hey all,

Crash Test and I were actually neighbors in TX, and now we live a few hours down the street. We own houses next to each other and still do a ton of stuff together IRL, especially bar bqs. Like he said I got him playing a few things, and he got me introduced to your forums. I have complained their isn't any real good spot to discuss GW2 atm since Anet has not opened up forums.

About me....Im a 43 yo American guy. Married kids, play video games. I have 2 accounts for GW2, gonna try and drag my daughter and several of her friends into GW2. They are WoW players, and pessimistic to try anything other than WoW. I started playing MMO's back in the release of Ultima Online. I played it for about 7 years, with multiple accounts. I deployed overseas and when I returned WoW was coming out so I jumped into that. I played it for seven years with several accounts and just recently closed all but one. I have also played GW1, Rift and SWTOR recently.

I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer, but many of the people I played with did. I enjoy PvE and PvP, and I really loved the WvWvW in the BW1. I am a stay at home dad, so I find I often have free time to game tho. Looking forward to getting to know people and game with them in the future, even as a friendly guild if not guild m8s! I have run guilds in UO and WoW and was in one of the largest guilds in WoW. It was crazy.....

Thank you, Svanen, for starting this thread, and also to all those who have already posted.

As we anticipate that we will be seeing many more new faces lurking in our GW2 forum in the upcoming months, we'd like to use this single thread as a way for new folks to just say hi and give a brief introduction of themselves to the group.

Once we open recruiting, then the Application forum in the Public section will be opened up again for each interested player to post their own official application thread, therein.

In the meanwhile, we encourage new forum members to read on and contribute to any discussions to your heart's content. Our philosophy in these forums is that we encourage thoughtful and mature discussions on topics mostly related to Guild Wars and other games, but also also some other random topics (though we like to stay away from religion and politics here ).

Good luck and happy posting!
On Behalf of the CAO,
Velvet

Hi again all,

Just to formally introduce myself then;

I'm 30 years old, a gamer of many years, an MMO player of some of those, many tried in various forms, but only really a few that I've got on with properly, including GW, Eve Online, and for a little time, the Matrix Online (which was really only fun for me as I love the matrix so much).

I'm a software engineer by trade, married, no children but one on the way so that is sure to keep me busy.

See you all around, liking the quality of content here, very good place to take everything in so thanks.


Chris
