    Hey. Stumpy Beogut here. Ageing Guild Wars player from the UK. Invited by a large amphibian to join the Guild for the 'more discerning' player. My background: after spending my formative years - early 20's being moderately ok in FPS games such as Quake and Quake2 etc, I eventually found myself getting repeatedly fragged by 14 year olds, got embarrased about lying about my age... 'Hey Stumpy, I fragged u real good, how old are you?' '12' I would reply (thus deducting 12 years from my actual age at the time). By that stage I'd learned from experience not to give my real age as I'd get: 'Cool, that's great you old people playing games, I bet you were really good at PacMan!' - well, the ghosties used to get me, so I stopped playing. Anyway, Guild Wars is great because you're not relying (Totally) on reflexes. Strategy and good choice of friends is much more important. That's where I met BigFrog, what a dude!! Please invite me to your Guild!

    Oops!! I'm losing it in my old age

    Those marbles are just rolling away one by one!!

    1) Ok, Yes, I'm over 25 (37 - DOB 1970)
    2) I HAVE read the AUP. I haven't read the FAQ because I don't have any questions at the moment.

    Sorry wrong answer.....

    I Have now read the FAQ and I'm feeling much more knowledgeable, plus it was quite interesting. 'Canyon' on the ZX81 was my first game, Elite on the BBC Micro my first obsession (and Yes, I made it to Elite without cheating - All those 'Right On Commander!!'s) :eek:/

    3) I've read the forum/server guidelines.

    BTW? Is it just me or does anyone else out there use proper punctuation, grammar and spelling on their SMS messages? Is that an age thing?

    Thanks!

    Stumpy Beogut

    Welcome to the madhouse mate! ;)

    Always good to have another U.K. based play on board the good ship TOG. :)

    If you ever fancy dipping your toe back in the waters of FPS games, but this time taking along some crusty TOGgers to act as a human shield against the pre-pubescents, drop by the Call of Duty 4 forums and say "Hi".

    Have fun,
    Jakob

    lol......you're going to fit in well mate! :)
