Application: Brother Grimm

Hail, Servants! Application incoming!

1. Why do you want to join SoF over other guilds?
Been a member of Scouts of Tyria since GW1 days and have heard good things about the players in SoF and want to get back into playing with old and new guild mates. I am admittedly a bit of a loner but want to change that by getting involved in an active guild.
2. What is your age (or age range) and in which time zone do you live?
I’m 51 (Get offa my lawn! ) and live in Central US time zone.

3. What (online) gaming experience do you have?
GW1 and GW2 (both since release). Many other on-line games (Diablo, Starcraft, etc.), but no other MMOs. Have also played a good bit of on-line console games (ME3 MP, CoD, Battlefield, Halo). Old geezer info: my first video game was an original PONG (wish I still had that thing now!) and an old Star Trek strategy game on my dads Datapoint mini computer....yes, I'm THAT old.
4. How is your time distributed among different PvE, WvW, and PvP activities?
About 90% PvE, 10% WvW (just getting into it and want to do MUCH more). Very little PvP but would like to try more in an organized setting.
5. What is your preferred profession/role? What do you like about it? What is your style of play?
I have level 80s of all classes but prefer (in order), Warrior, Thief, Guardian, Engineer, Mesmer (but I enjoy playing ALL classes). While I usually play an aggressive damage based style, with a cautious approach to unknown situations. I also enjoy assisting other players whenever possible.
6. What are your in-game character names? What are their levels?Hi....my name is Brother Grimm and I'm an alt-aholic....
• Gwyndln Grimstryk – Norn Warrior / 80
• Dehlyndda Chaoz – Human Thief / 80
• Svyndr Grimstryk – Norn Guardian / 80
• Mechal Grimtynkr – Charr Engineer / 80
• Brengynda Chaoz – Human Mesmer / 80
• Praeda Grimryndr – Char Ranger / 80
• Mortykai Grimryndr – Char Necro / 80
• Cytol Grimstone – Human Ele / 80
• Xynga Mcshane – Asura Mesmer / 31

7. Is Yak’s Bend your home world? If not, would you be willing to make it your home world?
Yes. I would certainly consider moving to another server if requested (but I feel a strong “home” in Yak’s Bend).
8. Have you contributed to the GW2 community through GW2 Wiki, Yaks Bend.com, or some other GW2 forum?
I have contributed to the wiki and help players daily on the Official GW2 Forums (Account issues, Technical Issues and Players Helping Players). I have recently become a member of Yaks Bend.com and want to contribute when I learn more about WvW.
9. Where did you find out about SoF? Were you recommended by an existing member? Do you already know one or more members of our guild?
Several SoT members have mentioned transitioning over to SoF and speak highly of the members here. I have played with Anomander, Jaxx and Pale (from Scouts). I recall playing with a members of SoF (and DoG) back in GW1 in the old Alliance but don't recall any names (Senility's a bitch).
10. Tell us more about yourself and why you would be a good fit for SoF!!
I am an IT professional in at a small manufacturing facility (a small cog in a large Corporation). I am very technically inclined and enjoy tactical and strategic challenges. I am also always hungry for knowledge and love to learn new information and apply it in innovative ways. I am a capable player and follower but can take charge and lead when it’s required of me. I know my limitations and am never afraid to ask for assistance or provide assistance when it’s needed.
Sorry if too long.

Heya Brother Grimm,

It is my pleasure to inform you that the Council has reviewed your application and you have been progressed to Stage 2: In-Game Trialing.


Please add the councilors to your friends list so that you can contact us in-game. Our in-game names can be found in the guidelines for applicants thread. It is your responsibility to make contact with the councilors so that we can set up some trial runs in-game.

Contact myself or another council member for a guest invite into SoF for the trial.


Have a great day!

On behalf of the council,

Bunter

Bro!!!
And another old (yes you are) Scout digs himself out and looks for a new home at SoF.
Good to see your application.
I have to warn you though that the trialing phase is extremely tough and gruesome; you may want to reconsider....

I've added all the Councilors I could find but haven't seen anyone on-line yet. I'm not sure about the display names either (as they do not match in some cases)....so I have not sent mail. I'll do that this evening.

Sup Ano! Pale told me you had meandered over here. Haven't seen you or Angel around much lately.

Unless you guys have figured out a way to physically harm me via the game (Please sir, may I have another!), I think I'll give the trials my best shot.

Grimm, send a in-game mail to Bunter.3795 and I'll get you the guild invite. I play at odd times so you might miss seeing me on.

Ok...was not able to find a Bunter from search (I think the player search is rather lacking, to be honest) so I'll do that tonight. Thanks for the reply and I'll consider it a challenge to see you in-game....

Great time trialing the Servants over this long (US holiday) Weekend! Thanks to everyone I was able to play with. Special thanks to Bunter, Tmakinen and Jenovesi and her siblings (that put up with me on Vent for far too long). Had an awesome experience with everyone (and even earned some great rewards!).

Again, thanks to the Servants for the opportunity.

Put up with YOU in vent? You poor thing, you put up with us siblings squabbling away in vent And survived it with flying colors!

Seriously though, had much fun playing with you sir! Hope to drag you through more content in the future (kicking and screaming if we must )

Bro, once again you have proven to be a survivor. Some things just can't be destroyed apparently. Welcome to the Servants for real now!
