    Name
    Adrian Ng

    Age (must be 18+)
    15 (Read below, please)

    Do you have any friends in the guild? If so, who?
    Nope

    Main Character
    Sock

    Character Name


    Race
    Asura

    Profession(Class)
    Elementalist

    What role do you wish to play in the guild? For example: PvP, PvE, Casual/Social
    Casual PvP, PvE and WvW.

    Which previous MMO's or online games have you played and how long for?
    I've played: Skyrim (80+ hours), Blacklight Retribution (60 hours), TF2 (60+ hours), Half Life 2 to Episode 2, Portal 1 and 2, Vindictus (off and on since Beta), Combat Arms (few weeks), and a bunch of F2P games.

    Were you a part of a guild? What was your experience?
    I was never in a "serious" guild, since I'm only 15, but I did join a guild's forums and had a lot of fun talking to people, helping people, and being around a friendly community.

    How did you hear about the Guild?
    I heard about Arcanix on Guild Wars 2's subreddit. I watched your 50+ Charr Mesmers running around the world, while I was singing along to Hakuna Matata, and fell in love with your guild. I continued to go through your YouTube channel, and I found Podcast #3.5. That's when I read the instructions, and I accept your challenge!

    What will you bring to the ALTTABME community? (Chatty? Skilled? Funny? Helping?)
    I'm a quiet person. I'm young, and I've been in a lot of communities that don't like people that hasn't been through puberty unless they're female, so I don't have any experience using Mumble. I do type, since I'm still anonymous. I try to help as much as I can when someone asks for help, and I'm very chatty once I get to know people.
    If you guys want me to speak for a PvP tourney or WvW, I will, but for most of the time, I'll be typing.

    Also, the only funny thing about me is my awkward-ness, and my amazing ability to be the most stupid person I've ever known.

    Will Arcanix be the only guild you join?
    If my friend doesn't make a guild, Arcanix will be the only guild. Unless circumstances.

    Is there anything else you would like to throw in here at the end?
    The final challenge.

    The only thing I can think of is that I understand why children aren't loved by young adults. Sometimes, I catch myself thinking hateful thoughts of people that are younger than me, and people that are older, because all you can think is, "Why the hell would you do that?" or their immaturity causes them to be a total kitten.
    I am immature myself -- can't deny that, but I've learned the difference of when it's appropriate and when it's not.
    My brain isn't as developed as your's, but I've read enough psychology articles, watched enough TLC, read enough books, to understand how people think, and know what to say and when to say it.
    I'm only 15 years into my life, and who knows how long I'll live, but right now, all I want is to play Guild Wars 2 and not have to worry about finding people to play with, because I'll have a friendly community that'll be right there if I type a few words.

    One more thing! When do you become a grown-up?
    When you start working? I've been working since January to pay for my phone.
    When you go to college or university? It's just school, but with more alcohol, parties, and bigger text books.
    When you pay taxes? I don't know a thing about this.

    Thanks for reading if you weren't instantly turned off by my age!

    Thank you for your thought out application. But we are going to have to say no still.

    I decided to try to give you the benefit of the doubt even when I saw the age of 15. I really tried. But a lot of what you said in your app is the main reason I can't give the +1. No voice communication is a big concern. This is our main source or communication and barely any of us even look at the chat box. Your views about about becoming a "Grown-up" amused me. I started working at 14. I was actually working earlier under the table, but that's because I had to save for college. Sadly, my college didn't involve much alcohol and parties as I was mostly involved in double majoring and preparing for a career. I'm now in said career and paying plenty of taxes, as I did at 14.

    And your large rant about TLC and books. LAWL. I'm sorry kid, but you don't know squat. You're still in highschool. Your biggest priority is how to purchase your phone. You don't magically know how the world works because you read a couple books and watch TV. I'm sorry, but don't act like you know the world. It'll crush you. Seriously.
