Default Elayne applying for a membership

Hello! My name is Gerard, I am 29 years old and live in the Netherlands. I am applying for a membership because a friend of mine, Athica, told me how much he is enjoying playing Wildstar with your members and I wish to experience the same.

My gaming history starts with Dune II: the Building of a Dynasty back on a 486. Technically, I started on an MSX but Dune II was the first game I vividly remember spending too much time on. I moved on through strategy games at first (Red Alert, Red Alert 2, C&C Generals) and also played my fair share of Unreal Tournament 98 and 2k3. Until WoW.

The concept of an MMO appeals to me and I can only say that this is 'my type of game'. I've played WoW from 2005 until, well, last year (though I've been off and on for the last couple of years). I've been a GM and raid leader through Wrath of the Lich King and have had a blast. After a while, though, the game changed to a point where I enjoyed logging in, but not doing anything in the game, which made me quit in the end.

For me, Wildstar is everything that I miss about WoW in its current form. It is more difficult, the combat is pleasantly different, there is no 'right way' of doing things (yet), and there are many aspects that are thoroughly complex and fun, providing a real challenge. I do approach the game differently, though, as I've grown up in the mean time: I have a full-time job a 1 hour commute away (as an IT consultant), a girlfriend whom I share an apartment with, friends that I still wish to see on a regular basis... I just want to relax and enjoy my time within a game, and from what I hear, many of you enjoy games in a similar fashion.

So, that's me in a nutshell. Let's see:
  1. What games are you currently playing/looking to play with TOG? Check!
  2. What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played? Check!
  3. Why do you want to join TOG? Check!
  4. Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share. Check!

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
