1. List your in-game name for GunZ
2. Please fill out the following information:
A. What community contributions have you made that shows you would make a good game sage?
I made a long list of GunZ suggestions, which can be found at www.aeriagames.com/forums/en/viewtopic.php?t=1737479
. I also made a "Quick Fix for Aeria!" thread, which was deleted. Hopefully it is being worked on. As far as I can remember, I have been respectful and helpful to other forumers. Even when offering my opinion on a matter, I do it in a non-trolling way that will not attract flame from others. Aside from my current guides and other threads that are in-progress and yet-to-be-released, I have stuck by this game for many years and have become somewhat known. I generally treat players both in-game and on the forums respectfully and nicely unless I see them mistreating others, in which case I condemn their actions.
B. What experience do you have running/hosting organizational events?
Besides participating in a couple GunZ events and scrimmages, I have done some small-scale clan events on GunZ. I don't have much experience here though.
C. What experience do you have helping people find solutions to their problems?
As I stated above, I try to help people with their issues whether it be getting mistreated, harassed, suffering technical issues, in which I have some experience, or anything else they may need assistance with. It wouldn't hurt to mention that I'm familiar with possibly all of the GunZ glitches. On the forums, I like to help bring ideas together to better the community rather than face problems on whose idea is better. If all else fails, I can point them in the right direction.
D. What experience do you have with our forum community?
I know some of the people on the forums, and I try to post in different sections besides just the GunZ General Discussion area. I made a couple threads which were all well-received I believe (I still don't know why the Quick Fix For Aeria thread was deleted unless I missed something). Like I said above, I am somewhat known on this game. I have experience playing with some of the forumers and non-forumers, so I know what direction players want to see this game move. Last point I wish to make is that I check the forums fairly often.
E. Please give a short description of what you think a good GameSage does.
It's tough to say something that hasn't been said. In my opinion, a good GameSage brings players and GMs together. This means that they aid anyway they can. They should be seen somewhat regularly online playing the actual game, so they know what's going on. Also, they should be helpful to players in every way possible. They also need to be able to increase the communication between players and GMs as well as vice versa in order to motivate players to continue playing the game. The players should have faith in their GameSages. They should not have to worry about them trolling, abusing their power, being biased, or anything of that sort. A good GameSage will follow the etiquette and rules set by Aeria while having fun with and helping players.
F. Why do you want to be a GameSage for THIS game (and not another)?
I have been playing GunZ for many years. I know what direction players want to see it go and which topics are touchy and controversial with the players as well as Aeria. GunZ is quite a unique game, and it is one of the only games left that I dedicate my time. There are still a decent amount of players left on this game solely due to how unique and fun it is to play even though there have not been many improvements made since its launch. GunZ has kind of become very mind-numbing for long-term players no matter what aspect of the game someone is playing. It needs updates and variety to keep it going strong. If I was picked as one of Aeria's GameSages then I would try to fight to improve the game and better the community.
I made my own pros and cons list.
-Knows the community
-Knows what players want
-Helpful and respectful
-Understands game mechanics and possibly all GunZ glitches
-Whisper, chat invites, general chat, etc are always open. Players can contact me very easily.
-Made a large suggestion list and a short-term one
-Some technical experience
-Experience in all areas of the game
-Easy to contact me outside of GunZ, since I'm frequently on msn.
-Somewhat inactive, but trying to change that. I just came back from a small break. I'm not sure how busy I will be during the next semester of college though.
-Not sure if I will have enough time due to first point.
-My opinion on who is legit or not is sometimes controversial, though I believe that I am one of the best on GunZ at spotting underclock and overclock.
-Multiple characters and alts
-Little to no experience in hosting events
That's all I can think of for now. I apologize for waiting so long before posting my application, but I was not sure if I would have time for this position, especially since I have been splitting my time in various areas. I should be able to dedicate a little bit more of my time on GunZ should I be picked, but if I feel that I cannot then I will freely quit.
Any feedback from the players is more than appreciated
