Axe Murderers - 6/08 - 11/08 - Cho'gall - Guild of co-workers just grouping and leveling together
Tyranny - 11/08 - 1/08 - Cho'gall - Raiding guild - left due to guild not following its own rules, playing favorites with friends.



Raiding Spec you prefer: 15/5/51

Why do you play World of Warcraft?

To enjoy a good/fun/challenging gaming experience with like minded individuals

Why did you choose to apply to Park Balance?

I saw your recruitment post in the Cho'gall realm forums.

How did you find out about us?

Originally, when I grouped with a Resto Druid named Hippocrit from Park Balance. He impressed me with his play and even more with his honesty and his willingness to compliment a fellow player after a difficult run. Then again when I saw the recruitment post in the forums

Are there any members from Park Balance that can be contacted for a referral? Hippocrit - Not sure if it would be a referral, but he did contact me and mentioned he thought I was an excellent tank and to contact him anytime I needed a healer for a run.

Activity

Currently our schedule for 25 man raids is from 8PM to 12AM Monday to Thursday.

Raids times are good for me.

10 Man raids are now considered "casual" and will be organized by the members whenever it is convenient for them.

Your Background

Do you play any other computer or console games?

Currently, not much other then WoW. I was playing a little Fallout 3, some Madded 09 on PS3 occasionally. I used to play Call of Duty frequently.

Please describe to us your responsibilities outside of World of Warcraft:

Single adult with roughly a 9-5 day job Mon-Fri.

Will any of these ever conflict with raid times? If so, what days will you miss? (Please be honest! We are all real people with schedules.)

Currently I don't have any scheduled activities or responsibilities during the listed raid times.


Raiding Experience

Please describe your knowledge and experience with all Raid content in Wrath of the Lich King.

I have run Naxx 10/25 - Spider/Plague/Abom/Razuvious cleared. OS 10 man, Malygos 10 man attemped a few times. Cleared VoA 10 man.

Learning and Self-Improvement

Do you watch videos and read strategies of encounters, even ones you have not completed?

Yes

If so, what encounters are you educated on that you have not yet done yourself?

4 Horsemen, KT,

Have you ever been offended by someone telling you what to do or how to do it?

I would not say I was offended but I certainly had a disagreement.

If so, how did you handle the situation and what did you learn from it?

I let the person present their side and then I presented my side and reasoning. I learned that good constructive criticism is necessary. Thinking outside the box and having an open mind will allow you to find alternative solutions to problems.

Would you consider yourself motivated to improve both in playing ability and professionalism?

Absolutely, I am always looking for ways to improve my play skill and knowledge base.

PVP Experience

Do you currently participate in arena PVP?

No

Please explain your Burning Crusade PVP accomplishments:

None

Technical Feasibility

Please describe the computer(s) [technically] and surrounding environment you play in:

Do you ever experience FPS lag?

Only occasionally in Dalaran

Do you ever get disconnected from the Internet? If so, why?

I think everyone has at one point in time. I don't get regularly disconnected. I have a stable cable connection with Cox Communications.

Do you currently own a full working version of Fraps?

I think I have downloaded it at one time. I don't really have any experience with it though.

Do you own any video editing software? If so, are you familiar with it?

No

Would you be interested in assisting with guild video projects?

I have always been interested in creating videos, I have just not taken the time to learn the process. I would be open to assisting.


Bonus Points

What do you think "Park Balance" means? Be creative and have fun.

Park Balance is the balance beam in the park that rival children would gather around to watch two challengers duke it out upon, to find out which one was left standing. Park Balance is the standard to which all challengers gather upon to reach the top. Those rivals would seek out the Park Balance to stand upon and challenge one another to determine who was the best.

I regret to inform you that we are unable to accept your application at this time.
