Hello Everyone, here is my application to your guild.

Name : Jean-François (or Jeff)
Location: Switzerland (French speaking part)
Age:Do I really have to go through the ordeal ? :) 38 in june
Playing hours : While there was no requirements I wanted to point out a few things about my playing schedule. I have a lovely wife and 2 even lovelier kids (5 and 4). I play football in a team and I work irregular shifts at work. All this to basically say that I will be online at hours that might be surprising. Some times I play in the morning etc. I might aslo be unable to play for some short periods due to schedule constraint, or holidays etc. On the other hand while I'm online, I'm 100% commited to what I do. So you can expect some kind of "professionalism".

PvE and PvP preferences: Up until very recently I was only interested in PvE in a MMO but I find myself liking PVP more and more. In GW2 I'm most looking forward to WvWvW. I will level my toon to 80 eventually. I will probably level while playing at odd hours and doing WvWvW with the guild.
MMO Experience: Shadowbane, Wow (5+ years), SWTOR (a bit disappointed by end game), World of tanks (although not a MMO per se)

What interests you in GW2: Personal story, crafting and WvWvW. As I've said Team play is what interests me the most so WvWvW seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.
What can you bring to the guild: I'm a team player. That's what interests me the most in a MMO : Team play. Playing with others, coming up with strategies, being part of a group and pulling together towards the same goal.(WvWvW ftw or so I hope) Also I like to help and I like crafting. So look for me if you need anything.
Do you use voice comms: Yes. I might be a bit shy at first because I like to gauge the atmosphere first.

Other : While I've seen the guild rules I don't have a name ending in "i", "ri" or "ari" yet and I don't know if I'll have one. I tend to use the same 2-3 names in all my MMOs, Ruina being one.
Second, I don't know what profession I'll play. I tried a thief and a ranger (both for about 2 hours) and I'll keep exploring during the next beta weekend. As for race, it will be either Norn, Assura or Sylvari. I realize that only one of them is "prefered" within the guild.
I realize that the last 2 points are not in accordance to the rules and I accept that I might not be accepted in the guild for those reasons.

I think that's all I can think of for now without boring you to death.

Thank you for reading my app and have a nice day all


P.S: if you have any questions, feel free to ask please.
... and nothing else matters !

Hi Ruina, I'm the recruitment officer here in the Full Hand. Great application I must say, I don't think anyone would oppose that. :) Also, your somewhat irregular playing hours is not a problem, and we will definitely value your "professionalism". I also play at oddly hours from time to time. I think it would be to our advantage to have people online throughout the day actually, if we have to defend a keep in WvW for example!

Speaking of WvW, I have always loved PvP, and WvW is what I look forward to the most, hands down. Even though I feel it's hard not to be excited about everything. :P It warms my heart to hear that you have found an interested in WvW too, surprisingly many have, also a lot previously PvE focused players such as yourself. As for team play and strategy, that's what we're all about. I know Fargone is already brewing on a couple of strategies for WvW. :)

Sounds like you have a lot to give to the guild, and don't worry about the name as it's not required if you don't want to. Also, a lot of us are still in doubt when it comes to what professions we plan to play, I for one can't really say for sure at this point, but hey that's one of the advantages of playing the beta, more time to make up ones mind. ;)

And finally, welcome to the guild, your application has been accepted if you haven't already guessed it. ;)

We appreciate quality over quantity here, so it sounds like you are a good fit! Welcome to the Full Hand Ruina.

Don't worry about character names, think more about 'hand' related puns, like old Scomb here:

Hey, welcome to the guild!
I think I'm going to practically live in GW2 WvW, already negotiating with my post-office about redirecting my mail there, but they're saying scanning everythign to a digital format is too much of a hassle...

Anyways, its good to see such a good quality recruits.
And, if you don't usually use a name ending with "i", how about swapping Ruina to Ruani? Well, tbh I don't think any of my character names end with i either, I usually try to stick with names fitting the race.
Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
