1. Have you read the Code of Conduct and do you agree to follow it?


2. How did you hear about The Remnants of Hope? If a member invited you please let us know who.

I played in the guild and led Fractals of the Mists on some Tuesday nights back around... 2019-2020 I think? I've gotten way back into Guild Wars 2 and don't have anybody to play with, so I thought revisiting the guild would be a fun way to find a community again.

3. If you could travel to any time or place where would it be?

If I could travel to any place right now I think I would travel to Europe, somewhere. My friend right now is studying abroad in Italy and it looks absolutely gorgeous this time of year, I've never been out of the country and would really like to see more of the world, classical and ancient culture etc.

4. Upon joining Remnants of Hope you are expected to maintain a mature and friendly demeanor to everyone in game. What does maturity mean to you and do you feel that you can remain civil even with the nastiest players in the game?

I've been playing competitive FPS titles most of my life, starting with Overwatch and moving into Valorant, dealing with players that want to start a fight or be uncooperative is the norm in these games. It's best to treat your opponent or teammate with the expectation of the golden rule, I always believe that I should treat others with the same respect as I would expect someone to give me. I believe maturity comes out of learning from those experiences where you may have not done the right thing, finding that fault and understanding the correct course of action in the future. I feel that I can remain civil with the nastiest players in the game because I hold the respect of others to the highest regard, who knows what personal situation that player may be going through to make them lash out like this? We all just want to relax and have some fun with friends, those that purposely disrupt others should calmly be told to stop.

5. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?

I think if I could have any superpower, I would want to know the answer to any question I ever have at any specific moment. Although this might end up being my downfall, there are so many unanswered questions I have about the world (plus it would make difficult jobs much easier in your career).

6. Have you been in other guilds before; on this game or any others? If so,what was your favorite and least favorite things about them?

I have been in 2 serious guilds within Guild Wars 2, one being Remnants of Hope, and the other being Ethereal Guardians. My favorite thing about Remnants of Hope was the extremely kind community who always wanted to include everyone, I truly felt like I could be a part of the community here. My least favorite thing about RoH was that my PST timezone really interfered with running Fractals of the Mists nights, but that is more of just an unfortunate coincidence. With EG, my favorite thing was probably the size of the guild. It was huge and everyone knew who EG was. My least favorite thing about this guild was finding years later that there was a large scamming scandal and it had to be shut down.

7. What five adjectives, and 5 only, would you use to describe yourself?

Honest, respectful, competitive, scatterbrained, funny.

8. Have you ever held a leadership position in a gaming community? Would this be something you are interested in in the future?

I have held many leadership positions within Overwatch gaming communities, mostly within competitive team events such as organizing practices or PuGs. I also ran some tournaments between mid-elo teams on OW. The only other leadership position I have held outside of OW was in RoH, this was a small leadership role as I mentioned before, I was just the lead for Fractal nights and would swap with one other person who I regretfully forget the name of right now.

9. Aside from gaming, what is one activity you enjoy? And what is one activity you dislike?

One activity I really enjoy is going to the gym, I workout 5 days a week and hold a really high standard for myself when it comes to nutrition and consistency. One activity I dislike is grinding for 21,000 essences of despair to get a full set of Obsidian Armor. Really though, an activity I dislike is shopping, I'm not very big on hanging out in stores for long periods of time. I like to know what I'm getting, go in, and get out.

10. What are your personal strengths and weaknesses as a person (not in game)?

I like to think that I'm a resilient person and can come back from negative situations quite easily, however my largest weakness might be my sensitivity. I take things pretty seriously sometimes and am somewhat gullible, I can believe some of the most obviously sarcastic things.

11. Remnants of Hope houses players that enjoy all aspects of the game, Crafting, PVE, PVP, RP and Social. Which do you enjoy the most, and why?

I enjoy crafting, PvE, and PvP and love doing these activities with others. I have not really ever done RP but would not be opposed to trying it out sometime. I love PvE because it's so relaxing and fun to do huge events with loads of people while at the same time working towards a goal at my own pace. For PvP - I just love this because I am very competitive.

12. The servers are closing down in 24 hours permanently. How would you like to spend the last bit of time in game?

I would probably find the biggest meta train and run it for as long as possible, having fun with a huge amount of players who will most likely be reminiscing in 'the good old days' of GW2.

13. What other games have you played and what did you like about them? Any games you are excitedly waiting for?

Mostly, I've stuck to Overwatch and Valorant as my staple games. I loved the crisp polish to these arcade/tactical shooters and the competitive atmosphere. As I've grown up, moved away from family, and gotten a career, I have found that Valorant isn't exactly a great way to relax after a long day, so I swapped back to GW2. There aren't any games I'm currently excited for, except for the Janthir Wilds expansion for GW2, I don't think I'll be swapping my main game anytime soon.

14. If you could be any animal (fantasy ones included) which would you be and why?

If I could be any animal, I would probably choose to be a hawk or some sort of bird of prey. Being able to fly great distances in the open air would be true freedom, while also not needing to worry about finding food in the ground and being able to protect myself.

15. RoH utilizes Discord for VoIP. Are you willing to use this platform, based on the needs of the activity you're interested in?


16.Are you on the servers we currently play on and are you planning on transferringto join us?

No, I'm on BlackGate but will not be doing much WvW.
