Expo Executioner Application

Recommended Posts

  • Now that you've read the rules and expectations do you agree to follow them?
    Yes!
  • Let's start with your preferred name...
    Expo
  • Preferred personal pronoun?
    Male ones
  • May we ask your age?
    24
  • What is your Arena Net Display Name? (user.1234)
    Expo Executioner.2687
  • How did you hear about Reborn of Embers?
    Returning player looking at gw2forums
  • Our events are typically in the evening of the Eastern time zone. Are you available during these times? How often do you play each week?
    ~8hrs
  • What is your favorite game mode and what do you like most about it?
    Raids. I love min-maxing a build and executing a rotation as part of a team. I came from GW1 speedclears and that was my favorite thing to do in any game growing up.
  • Are there any game modes you are interested in learning and what is holding you back?
    Possibly WvW, it just seems like a mess of button mashing to me. Maybe small hitsquads would interest me.
  • What classes do you play, which is your favorite and what do you like most about it?
    First it was assassin, and now thief. I love glass cannons. If I can challenge myself to avoid damage, rather than use skills to tank it, I like that challenge. Missed the dodge? Dead. Not enough stealth? Dead. Though thief is my main class, I also enjoy playing mesmer and necro.
  • What are your favorite and least favorite things about a guild?
    Favorite? A wonderful system to organize the completion of content in the game. Especially content that is completed in small groups, like dungeons and achievement hunting. GW2 makes map-wide meta events pretty easy, but they run much smoother when lead by a strong guild. Least favorite? Some guilds can become very dramatic. I tend to be in a guild more to complete tasks in game, and less of a socialization medium. I'm not looking to make new close friends, but I like to be friendly with everyone.
  • Pineapple, does it belong on pizza?
    Belong is a strong word. I love it on my pizza but I wouldn't say its a requirement.
  • Tell us a little about yourself. What do you enjoy outside of gaming.

    Professionally I'm a web developer and work a full-time job currently. I grew up on the west coast and now I live on the east coast with my wife. Outside of gaming I love to go rock climbing both at gyms and parks. My cat Theo tolerates me as I feed him every morning. Today he almost got in a fight with another cat on the street. Raids on Monday is tough for me, because right now that is my night for Starfinder with my best friends. Hopefully I can get some completions with you guys on Fridays.

  • What other games do you play?
    I usually focus on 1, maybe 2 games at a time and go through phases. Right now I am splitting my attention the most I ever have, and its kind of hard for me to balance. I'm playing through GW1 Prophecies with my buddies, playing CoD:MW with my in-laws, playing GW2 alone, playing The Division 2: Warlords with my other buddy,
  • Who’s your favorite all time video game character?
    This is a really tough question for me. I've had so many positive experiences in videogames, I love so many characters. I don't really pick characters based on who they are or what they do, it's more of the experience/memories I've had with them. Like, Steve from Minecraft could fit the bill. Maybe Corvo Attano. Or my first love, Mega Man. But above all, the character I've spent the most time with, is probably Expo Executioner.

What speed clearing guild(s) were you in?! I loved speed clearing on my assassin! Got a couple records on the website too!

 

And welcome to the boards!

I was just a kid and wasn't really comfortable on Teamspeak, so I just always pugged for UW/Fow/SoO. But later on I made friends with a guy that ran a DoA group every week, and I was able to gear a mesmer to tag along in those.

Oh nice! I didn't do a ton of UWsc but I loved doing all the dungeons, FoWsc, and some DoA too. Our guild had some people who wanted to get 30/50 for their HoM, so I have been helping out with that when people ask for it. But when I went back, I actually ended up trying to solo some of the dungeons that I could back then. Figured out I still can do some of them! But it would be nice to have someone else who can speed clear or can get back to that. Maybe we can organize a FoWsc event (probably in the far future).

Congratulations!

Hey There Expo Executioner,

Great news, your application for trial membership has been approved! You now begin the Spark Introductory Phase. In this post you will find important information about the community and the next steps on your journey to becoming a full member. The trial membership, or "Spark Phase" is an important part of our community. This process helps us determine if you will be a good fit for us, and helps you determine if this is the home you are looking for.

 

The Spark Phase FAQ!

Before you become a full member you will need to complete the following tasks. You have 4 weeks starting NOW! 

 

What do I need to do?

  1. Read the Rules and Expectations here.
  2. Sign the Member Agreement here.
  3. Join the GW2 guild in game by accepting the invite within 1 week of trial approval.
  4. Join us in Discord. Visit this post for discord information.
  5. Upload an avatar (profile pic) to your Discord account. This helps us recognize you on the in-game overlay during events. Please also change your Discord nickname on our server to match your forum name, so we know who you are.
  6. Participate in and post 6 activities to your app thread (Screenshots work best). Only 2 of these activities may be non-GW2 related.

 

Activities include:

  • Any activity in GW2 or RISE** with atleast 2 other guild members. Please list who you played with and include a screen shot if possible.
  • Attending scheduled GW2 guild events in game (see calendar of events here).
  • Uploading an avatar to your forum account and posting an introduction on the forums.

 

(Note: If you would like to be notified when a new event is posted, please sign up for one or more of our mention groups. You can join our discord notification groups by visiting the #notifications channel).

 

IMPORTANT: You must post on your application thread to let us know what you participated in, and who was with you. Screenshots are great! Help us help you by keeping us in the loop!

 

Please continue posting screenshots to help you on your trial of various things you did while in your trial! We would love to see what else interests you and whatcha did! ?

 

**Activity participation in games other than GW2 with at least 2 RISE members are subject to approval at the recruitment Team's discretion.

 

When will i finish?

 

During your Spark Phase, we will be monitoring your progress to gain insight about how well you are integrating into the community. At the 1 week point you will receive a PM from our recruitment team with an update on how you are doing! After a period of at least two weeks, the Phoenixes will vote on making you a full member.

 

If you have not fulfilled the above objectives, or we feel that you are not a good fit for the community by the four-week mark, your application will be declined.

 

Community Info!

There are two ranks of leadership in RISE, Phoenixes and Flames. The Phoenixes oversee every aspect of the community in our anchor game GW2 and our casual games. Flames are specialists that help out in different areas of the community.

 

Phoenix Leadership:

 

Ranks in the community include:

  • Phoenix - Round Table Leaders of RISE
  • Flame - Specialist in various areas of the community
  • Ember - Full member of RISE
  • Spark - Trial member of RISE
  • Friend - Ambassador from another guild
  • Ash - Applicant to RISE

 

For more information on these ranks check out our guild structure. To meet our leaders and find out more about their specific job check out our leadership roster.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact one of the Phoenixes or one of our Recruitment Flames:

@Cowboy, @Sana@ars, @CorpPhoenix

 

Once again, congratulations on becoming a Spark and welcome to the community!
