Application: TingTang

What game are you applying for?

What is your character name?
TingTang and Baldie

Why do you want to join UDL?
I’d really interested in the Crowfall design, which looks like they’ve learned a lot from watching EVE for mass dynamics.
And you can’t play a game like that without a lot of friends!

How did you find out about our guild?
Posted in the Beta Guild recruiting channel and got an invite.

Describe your past MMO experiences
I’ve been playing MMORPGs since EverQuest. I had a slot in the WoW Alpha, which was enormous fun. I’ve played Camelot, Shadowbane, and EVE, all of which appear to have contributed to Crowfall.

I have no overall Guild history, although I was a Guildmaster in WoW - we had about 30 casual players doing non-raid activity.

Do you have anything to prove you are an exceptional gamer?
Honestly, my hand-to-hand PVP is probably pretty bad by now - I’ve retired and my reflexes are a tad slow at this point.
On the other hand, that gives me plenty of play time. I’ve done crafting in many previous games with a high degree of success, including WoW and Star Wars Galaxy, and I don’t mind playing a support role.

Do you have a member of UDL who can vouch for you?

What is your preferred play style?
PvP - Small Scale:

Tell us a little about yourself.

Currently living in Nevada. No income tax there.

Which is your strongest pillar? Which is your weakest?
Numbering respectively, I would say 3,1,4,2,5 in that order. Being a Old Guy, my wife has sandpapered the rough edges down sufficiently that I haven’t been attacked in the last 50 years. Of course, being 6’3" helps.
I put 5 loyalty last not because I’m flighty, but because that’s a quality that accrues with time - you shouldn’t instantly trust anyone, but instead grow into it.
