    Hi,

    My name is James and I am an old gamer who is keen to join your community. I am 41 years old and a Sailor in the New Zealand Navy. I have been playing WoW since mid way through vanilla.

    WoW is the game I play most. I dablle a little in other games but nothing of note. I currently play on the OCE Nagrand/Cael server. My mains are horde but I have a max level alt on Alliance.

    The firs tgaming machine I remember having was an Atari in the living room however after that I played a fair amount on our Comodor 64 and Amiga 500. Was not a really big gamer though until I picked up WoW in my Mid 20's.

    I want to join ToG because I have a few old friends that I use to play with a long time ago that are a part of ToG. My main guild tends to clear content pretty quickly so it gives me time to play alts and playing with friends who are amture is very appealing. Maybe not as uch for them though.

    I am an old married man with two young boys (8 and 10) and a wife who hates but tollerates my game playing. I have been serving in the Navy for 20 years. My job does require that I go away but these days not as much on ships as opposed to on planes so my trips are far shorter than they use to be. I have setteled a lot over the years. Where I use to push to win at all costs and probably burnt a few friends back in the day I am far more laid back now. This actually works well for me as when things go wrong in game now I have a tendancy to roll with it as opposed to throw around blame.

    Gaming and WoW in particular is my past time. It would be a lot of fun i think to spend some time with some like minded mature players.

    Thanks very much.

    James

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
