Hey guys,

My name is Iwen, from Sydney. I'm 26, work full time for Apple, study a marketing degree part time, full time father and husband.

Looking to join a guild which is all about community rather than achievements. When I was younger, it was all about achievements and loot, now as I'm starting to get older.. Time is shorter so it's about having a good time in game when I can get in game!

Played a lot of MMO's, and like most, started with World of Warcraft.

As Guild leader of <Chosen One> on Frostmane years ago, before taking a break from the game to return with <Casual> on Jubei'thos. All successful raiding guilds. Then I decided The Burning Crusade was wank and quit altogether. Played on and off over the next few years just to keep up to date with the levels.. Played a Paladin, Warlock and Priest during my time..

Played Age Of Conan for a month before deciding it was bad..

Then I went to join TRF and we played Aion and Warhammer online, and then I did a bit of solo work in Guild Wars for the last 5 years.

Playing mainly offline games now, just can't stand MMO's and the time investment required, especially when the Mrs hates gaming, so I always need to be available to go AFK!

I played the beta weekend for Guild Wars 2 and fell in love. It caters for my 6 hour late night sessions and my 2 hour early evening sessions just fine, and there's just so much to see and do, and I want to do it with a great bunch of people. My current guild TRF are umming and ahhing over playing Guild Wars 2, but the guild is quite small (albeit, amazing at PvP). I never gelled with them as much as I would have liked.

Looking at playing either a Ranger or Mesmer at this point. Leveled a Ranger to 15 and had a blast, so next BWE I want to try a mesmer extensively.

Feel free to ask me anything!




TLDR version.

I want to join your guild.

Thanks
Fork
Welcome!

Wow you make me look bad, you've got so many things going!! And you're even younger than me. But how can you find time for gaming?? Use your child army to powerlvl your toons with their little hands? Also Apple is from Satan. That is all.

Welcome, friend.

I don't want to have to be the first one to break out the serious questions, but I do have to ask:

Have you ever exposed yourself to an animal? If so, what was its reaction?

@popolo

I'm Asian, we don't cut! However hygiene is very important.


@Zodiak

I find time when everyone is asleep or when my son is happily playing by himself. Hoping to have another kid as well. I love Apple, fantastic company to work for. Been with them 5 years, has really helped set up my life.

@Spoon

I would never do such a thing!

What do you do for Apple?

Welcome Iwen. Loving the effort you put into introducing yourself. In fact, many of the newcomers are offering up some great information about who they are. Look forward to seeing you in the GW2 team. By the looks of things, we are going to have a pretty awesome bunch of people who we can group up with.
Welcome again.
Salin
Another Sydneysider yay! :)

Weclome aboard man! In the last beta I played mesmer to 25, they are awesome fun. The class really starts coming into its own after 10 when you start spending your trait points and getting more utility skills.

Jump over into our GW2 sub forum, we have lots of screencaps of our experiences over the weekend, and a lot of thoughts on how we think the weekend went :)

TLDR

WELCOME :D

Warm (and jizz-covered) welcome to Twelve Iwen, which part of Asia are you from? Do you enjoy Hainanese Chicken Rice (Food of the Gods)?

We would glad to have you on board our GW2 assault team, we've already got a strong member base from the first weekend beta. It's just going to pick up momentum and strength until release, everyone's already told you to go to the GW2 subforums, so do check out the multitude of other subforums available in these rambunctious halls.

Please drop me a PM if you want me to create a Twelve Ventrilo account for you.
