Which branch(es) are you joining us in? (Aion, Champs, DDO): Champions Online.

Are you over 18? (you must be 18+ to apply) Yes, I am 19 years old.

Are you a member of any other guild in that game? No.

What is the name/class/current level of the character(s) you intend to join with? Supreme Purity/Sorcery/17.

Do you have friends or family in the guild? If so what is their forum name? Yes, a friend. Their forum name is 'DDareDDevil'.

Did you read our charter and rules? Which rules translation was your favorite? I have read the charter and rules. The Scottish and Drunken Impaired version was my favorite, very funny!

Do you have an issue using Ventrilo? (Being able to at least listen is helpful for active participation in PvP/raids) I have no issues with Ventrilo, I use on a regular basis already, and find it is very beneficial for many aspects of gaming and socialising.

Answer the following 4 questions. PROTIP: if your answer is shorter than the question, we will make fun of you for being boring.
1. What's the dumbest, funniest or most embarrassing thing you have ever done: One of the dumbest things I have ever done is, when I was younger (under 10) my family and I were abroad, and we were at this resturant. Well I got bored near end of meal as all kids do generally and decided to ponder around (with my near baby brother) and saw what I thought was some stray dog. I followed it all the way to this stranger's house, entered the house and walk all the way to the back to where this old guy was (still with my baby brother), then spent about an hour there until parents came rushing in, not in such a good mood with me :p
2. What is your Zombie Plan? Asumming the Zombies can not swim, go to the nearest port, get a big yacht, make sure their are no zombies aboard, collect enough food and drink for a couple of months, then set of just a mile or 2 out shore and wait for all the zombie to starve to death. If they can swim I am screwed :S
3. Tell us the story of why you will no longer drink <name of drink>: Im sorry I really can not think of anything funny or witty for this one, only thing I got is about 7,8 years ago my taste buds changed, and I cant stand Normal Coke, but I love Diet Coke, so i no onger drink Normal Coke.
4. Tell us something cool about yourself that has nothing to do with gaming: I can sing, play an instrument, I can play squash, golf, tennis, and I can swim pretty fast. I like to travel, and currently at Univeristy studying a degree :D

Quick survey! We will totally judge you by the answers you make below:
• Favorite Type of Music: At the moment, Chart, RnB, some Dance/Techno
• Favorite Movie: I enjoyed he Lord of the Rings Trilogy, to be honest I have not got a favorite movie, I like too many, cannot pick 1 out.
• Favorite Book: I spend all my money on Music, Games, Movies and Drinks so can not afford to buy any books :(
• Favorite Drink: Non Alcoholic: Diet Coke / Alcoholic: Pint of Beer
• Favorite Non MMO Game: Dynasty Warriors Collection (Game Console)

Well In the same spirit I judged DD's application I also Judge yours..




Actually DD's first try was better.. I just don't grade less than a D. You get one letter grade for applying.

Overall, it's actually not a bad application. Maybe flesh it out here or there, but it not bad. Chat us up in game or vent.


oh...Dynasty Warriors, really?!

I think Zombies either walk along the bottom of the water or float across.

Hey, that's my plan! Get off my yacht, ya dern kids!

As for the dumb story, do you have anything that isn't excusable by age? I mean, at 10 years old a certain amount of stupid is expected. So, something that would make ya look 'tarded today :p

Also, what instrument do you play? (shall we make him sing and play for us? :D)

Zombies have no real problem with water. Bring a harpoon gun.

Check the accepted apps subforum and take a look at them. It's a good start to an app, but we're looking for what kind of person you are, mostly. My app was kinda shortish too, but that's why we ask follow up questions.

Also your dumbest thing story is...kinda scary actually. :shock:

Agreed.

Also, do you have any dumb stories from a time closer to the present? Not to say your dumb story wasn't dumb, but I know a lot of kids who do silly things like that.

Like Zandar said, take a look at the "Accepted Applications" section.

When people say "flesh this out more" they mean...well.

Take a look at your application. Now grab any other 19-year old male that plays MMOs and is going for a degree. Bribe them into doing the application with a beer.

How is yours (at the moment) different from what they'd answer for theirs? There will be differences, as people are generally unique. Those differences provide insight into your personality, and the application's designed to draw those out and highlight them. What you've got here is a good start (hell, you already sound more interesting than me), but we want moar.

It's not to say that we outright hate you as a person and think you're not awesome enough for our little club. That comes only if you freak out and start flaming the lot of us.

You don't have to be completely insane, an alcoholic or a supermodel-banging secret agent time-traveling dinosaur to "work" with this group (though they'd all help). You just have to be able to carry on a conversation with a diverse group of people without getting into a holy war or putting everyone to sleep.

But if you ARE going to be one of these, the third one is probably your best bet. We already have enough of the first two.

Definitely not to sleep. We can tolerate a little jihad now and again, so long as it's interesting.

Well if i were to bring a gun, Harpoon seem a little slow to me, especially if i were be mopped by those bloody things. I'd get several big fat miniguns, place them opposite ends of yacht and have a good old shootout, as they surround me, Fight to the death!!!

I fully understand what you saying, thank you for explain, im hoping this pos push me a little closer, i was never very good a doing these sort of things :S


NEW DUMB STORY:
Last year, we had just finished our classes for the day, and every1 from class was meeting up after to get some drinks. We had a few cars taking us there. We thought it be good idea to race there and last car there would have to pay for first few rounds of drinks, we all took challenge up. Anyways we all get off wizzing away, i decided to take a back route thinking it not be so busy, as it wasnt. So im picking up some good speed on these smaller roads, and sudden a pretty ugly bend comes up and I skid off the road attempting to go around, go through a hedge into and ditch and straight into a fat tree trunk to finish off. I never got a drink and lost £20 for other guys drinks . Oh ye the car never drove again, and messed up my next couple months completely. Very stupid and dumb moment for me.

Can we assume that you had arrangements made to get everyone home safely after the night of drinking?

If so, I feel ok laughing at the "Got into a minor car wreck while racing to a bar" thing.

That's one of those things that really proves the "it's only funny til someone gets hurt" cliche.

Not that you can prove. >_>

*puts on Serious-Cat-Hat*

I'm sure "most people" have had an experience like this somewhere... but I've had two close friends die in alcohol-related car crashes. So whenever I see a joke about drunk driving, I'm all...

:D :) :| :( :cry:

So I always feel kinda guilty when I laugh about something like that without making an attempt to dissuade anyone else from doing it.

Anyway.

*takes off SeriosCatHat*

Keep on in chat, do some missions with some members.

Sorry maybe I said soemthing wrong in the story but i was not drunk myself, neither were any1 else involved. Coz drink driving is a whole new level of stupidity. We were just racing for free drinks pretty much and the excitment overtook me at the specific time.
Also no 1 was injured in any way shape, or form on the today or up to today because of it. So they were all pretty much laughing at the car on the day then at me next few weeks lol.
Was meant to be more a dumb than funny story thoug, just to clarify to everyone :)


I cant show ur picture cpt, coz it wont allow me to enter coding, but...
HEY!! We dont all look like that XD I would show a counter picture, but I can't do BBCoding in my current status :(

Ok all that shows is they can walk under water, but it also shows that some zombies can still be mummy's boy, that they will walk pretty slowly to wait up for the old mum and that they can get lost, so maybe the water isnt there strongest point, my yacht looking a bit more safe now :D

You can still type an address in and anyone interested can copy-paste it. You just can't embed or link things.

This is probably worth putting on the fridge. Good explanation :cool:
