So last month Crowfall introduced the Templar Archetype and announced it would be heading to Alpha soon. I have been watching both CU and Crowfall, trying to decide which to back. When I read about the Templar, I quickly signed up as an Alpha level backer.
I look forward to playing this archetype as hopefully a frontline support tank. I also look forward to running a Druid healer and a DPS focused Knight.
So, while I wait for the Templar to hit alpha, I figured the next step was to find a guild!
Atmosphere: Mature and friendly crowd, preferably 30+, who are able to accept the fact that real life happens from time to time.
Casual/Hardcore?: Semi hardcore. As stated above, real life happens on occasion and gaming is my way of getting away from the day to day stresses of real life. I prefer my game time to be productive yet fun, and not more stressful than actual life. With that said, I may not min/max to the top 1%, or swap builds with every new meta, but I do put everything my time allows into my builds and do my best to be successful.
Size: medium sized, preferably a gaming community. Its getting old jumping from small guild to small guild every few years when it's time to make a game swap.
Play-Style: I am an outside the box thinker. I enjoy creating my own builds and straying from the meta. My playstyle is generally that of a front line healer (typical paladin) or support tank. More than likely my main will be a Templar, unless they do some major changes to the mess that is the Druid.
Commitment: I am a stay at home parent with kids and a wife that works the graveyard shift. This makes my playtime limited and unpredictable. When I am in game though, I focus 110% on the objectives I am playing towards.
Miscellaneous: A little about me, I am in my mid 30's, live on the east coast, served in the military for over a decade, spent about a decade in college, and have been married close to a decade too. I am a big fan of medieval fantasy and space sci-fi, including everything from Star Wars (the originals) to Lord of the Rings. I got my start into MMO's from playing table-top rpgs. Been playing table-top for about 15 years, traditional MMO's (heavy PVE focus) for about 12 years, and RvR for the past 5 years.
EQ2 (2004 - 2007) - This is where it all started for me. I spent the majority of my time solo and was you typical filthy noob casual. My Iksar defiler was a blast to play though!
LotRO (2007 - 2011) - My second major MMO that I put considerable time into. Was the first game I got deeply involved with a guild. I also spent a lot of time playing with my wife. I played a Hobbit Bard and she had a Hobbit Warden.
SWTOR (2011 - 2015) - The story telling was awesome, but I loved me some Huttball. This was the MMO where i started to get my feet wet with PVP. Aside from being in a PVE guild, I helped create an off shoot guild specifically focused on Huttball. My main was an Imperial Agent healer.
GW2 (2013 - 2014) - This was the game that caused me to fall in love with RvR and large scale PVP. When it dropped, I continued to play SWTOR for PVE and battlegrounds off and on, but I played GW2 specifically for its large scale PVP. I maned a healing focused Asura Guardian for the majority of my playtime. This was the toon that most resembled my favorite playstyle as well.
ESO (2014-?) - Everyone knows ESO RvR is getting terabad. I bought the game due to it advertising large scale siege warfare. Since beta, I have slowly crafted out my niche as a heavy armored nightblade healer/defiler. I run an Argonian that is very similar to my EQ2 Iksar. This is the only MMO I am playing at the moment, while I search for a viable replacement (either Crowfall, CU, or Chronicles of Elyria). I spend about 90% of my time in RvR, and about the only thing that keeps me logging in is the great guild I am a member of.
I have also spent time (generally 3-6 months) playing SWG, WoW, BDO, The Division, Ark, Gloria Victis, Star Trek, Neverwinter, D&D Online, B&S, and TSW.
I have both Discord and TS3. I prefer to use Discord because this is what I am most proficient with.
