lntrepid's Application

Post  lntrepid on 21/09/15, 09:55 am

In-Game Name: Intrepid

Your real name or age (Optional): Waqas, 22

Total Level and # of rebirths. Snap shot of your rebirth information is required, please make the maximum size of the snapshot 800x600 so it will not stretch that thread:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

How active are you in game?:

I play around 3-4 hours daily, except for weekends and when I'm occasionally swamped with school-work.

Joined any previous guilds? If yes, which one(s) and why are you looking for another guild? (You must list all your previous guild(s) - we will conduct a thorough research. If you're in another guild at the moment. Please state what's your current guild on your application:

Currently I'm in the guild 'Glitched', but for the most part I've always led my own guild; sometimes being the only member. I've led Division, Glorious, and Calculus. They were guilds made with friends over the span of four years, but nothing serious.
I also recall being in the guild 'Verendus' but I stayed for less than a month. I left because I didn't agree with some of the members and their hate for certain guilds that my other friends were part of. Other than the above mentioned, I can't recall any other guilds that I may have joined for a longer period of time. This isn't to say that I 'guild hop' but because I've been inactive for the past two years and before then, I would either be leading a guild or guildless.

Why Dreams?: Throughout the ~five years I've played this game, Dreams has and probably will be the only guild that's persisted throughout the longevity of this game and I'd like to be part of a group that I know will be around for good. That being said, I know Dreams has gone through times when it isn't as active as it usually is, and if accepted, I wouldn't take that as a means of quitting the guild because I'm able to handle myself in missions fairly well alone.

Who have referred you? The person who referred you must post in your application as recommendation (you need at least 2 referals):

Tairiku, Cyril0321, DEATHADDER

How long have you been playing?:

I'd like to say.. Five years? I believe I began playing in '09 but I didn't really get into it until 2010.

What kind of skills/accomplishment do you have?:

The only thing I can feel having a sense of accomplishment for would be my ego! Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Any other information you would like for us to know:

Alright, I'll come off clean and let everyone know that I've bought accounts before and I've also used Pake. During the time I led Glorious, we would attend Guild Battle but a certain guild was prone to using "GM Hide", and so to counter them, I acquired Pake. I'm not saying that was the right thing to do, but at the time I felt fighting fire with fire was the only way to go because at heart I'm a very competitive person which sometimes gets the better of me.Beyond Guild Battle, I didn't use Pake for any other gains.
Many of you may have seen me rage a couple of times during duels, or simply badmouth others but I'd like to say I've changed, matured, and try my hardest to refrain myself from insulting others, except when I play League.
As for buying accounts, which I know is against ToS, I've learned from my mistake that people will taunt you for what you haven't accomplished on your own and so I created Intrepid for a fresh start and that is why my total may seem low for someone who has played for a very long time.

Thanks for taking the time to read my application, and I look forward to answering your questions.

Hi, confirming my referral on behalf of lntrepid here. I've known him on and off for about... 2 years now? And some of us here may remember him well from BD/WD raids he so generously summoned. All in all lntrepid's a pretty chill guy with a good disposition and overall attitude. Despite his total he can hold his own fairly well and he's a quick learner, so I see no problem with being not only a positive addition, but an independent member within Dreams.

Now... onto questions! (Fair many of us will probably ask you some throughout the application process):

Have you any goals set with your return to Mabinogi? What is your preference of combat style? Aaaaaaand, in the event you were not accepted this time around, do you think would reapply? Thanks for taking the time apply lntrepid! Good Luck!

Thank you Tairiku!
At the moment I'm looking to max out my ego which I know is pointless to many, but it's just something I want to get done. On a more broader note, I've started to work on my strength so I've been ranking Ninja which I'll say is a complete pain in the ass.
I prefer ranged combat, even though it's fairly underpowered compared to other skillsets (or could just be that my DEX sucks). In the event that I am not accepted, my reapplication would really depend on what bounds I'm rejected (i.e lack of skill, etc). I can't say for certainty that I would or would not, sorry for the ambiguous answer Mad

Hello Intrepid and welcome to the application process!

Some questions
You know we are against the use of hacking tools. How will you feel in case you get rejected due this issue? Will you try to apply again?
What are your in game goals?
Any hobbies outside mabi?
What you do for living?


That's all for now GL!

Hi aurkus Smile
If I were to be rejected for my use of Pake, I would wholeheartedly understand because I did break the ToS and I understand if the guild's policy denies me acceptance to the guild. Would I re-apply? I can't say for sure Mad
For the moment I'd like to max out my ego and begin working on my Strength, so Ninja skills. I'm also looking to craft (or get someone) a Bhafel Hunter/Huntress.
I'm an avid skier in winter andddd uh.. What else.. Oh, right. I'm that 'guy' that everyone despises at the gym who's on his Phablet Very Happy
I'm currently finishing up my undergraduate in Political Science, minoring in Computer Science (weird combination, I know) and am a supervisor at my local supermarket.

Thanks for the questions Smile

Hi Intrepid!

Thank you for taking the time to create your application.

Sorry that you had difficulties submitting your app earlier. This has been addressed and it is good to see that you've been successful at creating your application now.

I confirm that I am one of Intrepid's referral. Intrepid actually first approached me wanting to join Visions. While some friends are still in that guild even if it's empty, I recommended Intrepid to join me in Dreams instead since it would be better.

Intrepid has expressed that he had bought accounts and used Pake in the past. While these things are frowned upon by the community I believe it is important to focus on his intentions and the impact of his actions. Intrepid doesn't seem to have caused any harm to anyone in the community by doing these activities. He explains he only used Pake in guild battle to counter another guild who was causing harm to the community. Buying accounts is also harmless to the community as long as you don't steal someone's identity. I don't think Intrepid has stole anyone's identity lol. Thus, since these "offenses" have not negatively impacted the community, I believe the fact that he bought accounts and used Pake is negligible.

Intrepid seems to have lead many guilds in the past. I believe our guild can benefit from the knowledge and experience he's accumulated since his time in Mabinogi. We need more leaders in our community. Smile

---
Intrepid you forgot to attach a screenshot of your mastered talents! I'm sure you'll correct this as soon as possible.

I also have a question to address to you! =P

If you can be a grand master of a Mabinogi talent with all the talent's skills learned in real life, what talent would you choose to be? Why?

Good luck on your application!

Hello, and welcome to the Dreams application process. I would like to state firstly that Cryil is not a valid ref as she hasn't been in the guild 3 months but I'll accept her support as an honorary mention since you do have 2 other referrals and that works itself out.

There are so many things that come to mind when I see your name and the history that you've had with Dreams and some members. So lets ask and address some of those things.

1. You have been known to have a bad temper and mood swings in the past that has affected some friendships you've had in the game and sometimes you have "rage quit" mabi- infact more then once. How do you handle stressful situations? And would you like to share anything with us from your perspective on these situations?

2. I forgotten which guild it was at the moment but during guild battles you were also bragged up for supplying your guild members with reforges/reforged items and stood among them while they talked crap to Dreams members in the guild battle. How do you feel about those situations when you look back on them- and how did you feel being associated with these actions?

3. You'd purchased a character that some of us know well- then went on to delete him shortly after in one of your rage quit moments. You can see why that kind of temper might be a bit concerning. And when you do get upset do you just leave and quit on your own or do you also take it out on others. I'm just curious and would rather ask you then have to go looking around for answers.

4. You'd tried very persistently to try to purchase an item off of me. While persistence is admirable- this might also give the impression that you feel you can just purchase your way to obtaining items or things of want. I don't know you personally enough to talk about your personality with this but I don't want to have the impression that you're someone who feels entitled to things because they have money either.

Aside from those things with encountering you and running into you or you needing enchants or anything in the past you'd always been respectful towards me and I haven't known you to try to cause many problems other then the ones you were associated to through friends-reputation-guild. Like Verendus which was a known guild for exploiting mods and putting people down back then. I don't know what kind of impact being in a guild like that has had on you but if you want to share I'd be open to hear about it.

Good luck on your application.

I believe we were one of the only guilds that they guild battled against and I guarantee we were not "causing harm" to the community.

Buying accounts instead of progressing/working on your own can also be seen as lack of investment in time/training and motivation in one's own identity.

Using Pake is never "negligible".  It is something that is not tolerated or acceptable in the guild.  It is very different from just using mods to reduce lag. It was in his past so we will proceed with the app cautiously and consider all these things regardless.

Re: lntrepid's Application

Post  lntrepid on 21/09/15, 04:49 pm

I'll clarify a couple of points if I can. I wasn't speaking of Dreams in terms of Pake and Guild Battle but the guild "Prestigious"? I could be wrong but I think that's the one, and it wasn't during my time with Verendus but in my own guild, Glorious. I had friends in both Dreams, and Verendus. There was a reason I left Verendus quite shortly and one of the reasons were that I was expected to look down on Dreams' members as well, and I didn't. I had many friends in Dreams, and I think Leidolf would also agree that instead of following in their foot steps, I helped Dreams occasionally in Guild Battle against Verendus and refrained from any verbal altercations, though I may have been present, between Dreams and Verendus.

I'll try answering a couple of points you brought up together, as one leads to another. One of the reasons I "rage quit", is because on more than one occasion, I was looked down for having bought an account, rightfully so, which led me to creating Intrepid to progress on my own, and working up my own identity as you've pointed out. Other than this reason, I've never had to deal with "stress" on Mabinogi so to speak, nor do I think I've lashed out on anyone due to my own personal problems.

I think I'd like to clarify this point just a little more. I didn't delete the account because I was having a fit or bad temper, but merely because I wanted to start something of my own, and the only way I could have done so, was if I didn't have anything stopping me. Think of it this way, if I had to start off all over again with a character who's well over 6k, would I have been able to? Personally, no, and that's why I did what I did, not because I wanted to "rage quit".

That guild that you're thinking of was Verendus, which I wasn't part of for longer than two weeks. It's true I did hand over my gear to them, but that's because on that specific day I couldn't make it to Guild Battle as I had work and my friends needed an edge. These are people I had been friends with since the start, and though I was physically present, I didn't think to open my mouth, because I had friends on both sides. Could I have done anything better? I tried, I left the guild and instead helped Dreams during their Guild Battles. I'm not saying I did this to spite my friends in Verendus, but because they were greatly outnumbered and it just wasn't fun. Point being, I was never part of the trash talk.

I know exactly which item you're speaking of Keo Razz if I remember correctly, it was the Bhafel right? I can't say that I feel entitled to everything because I have money, but it's just that one item that I really, really, really wanted and still do. I understand how I may have come off, but I don't really know how to answer this question other than to tell you I've grown up, I have responsibilities as an adult, and I don't have the luxury of throwing around money like I had when I was younger.

I've sent a note asking DEATH to confirm her referral but I know she logs on very awkward hours lol sorry!

I think that about answers it all for you Keo? Feel free to let me know if I've missed anything

Hello and welcome to the Dreams application process:

I don't have a lot of time so I'll keep this brief and light

1). What is your stance on the current use of medicinal cannabis? Do you think we should push further legislation to legalize marijuana for not only medical use, but also recreational? Explain.

2). What other hobbies do you have? Is there something you're exceptionally good at? What is it?

Medical cannabis is and should always be available for those in need; I don't see what good it would bring changing any legislation towards medical cannabis. I think it's fairly easy to obtain a prescription for medical cannabis, so no harm there. As far as recreational use is concerned, though I haven't done much research, I think it's safe to say that alcohol proves to be more of a concern. Just take a look at driving accidents that occur through the use of alcohol in comparison to those impaired through marijuana...

I'm a boring person! But I guess I can include League of Legends as a hobbie? Can't say I'm exceptionally good at it. I can also curl 140 lbs Laughing
