I vVv Shafe here by endorse Zack (Archrose) Wade
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I have been playing with Archrose for the past 6 months or so, in Guild Wars 2, League of Legends and a few other games here and there. Had quite a few long discussions about everything from In-game mechanics to real life happenings. Always a pleasure.
What was your first impression?
My first impression of Archrose occurred right as I joined the vVv Guild Wars 2 Guild, and it was quite the pleasant one. Very bright, bubbly, and social individual. From the get go, he was always willing to help me with whatever I needed In-game, whether it be quests, pvp-mechanics, or even materials for crafting. I instantly knew that not only did he enjoy playing the same kind of video games that I did (And he's really freakin' talented at it!), but he also put a lot of himself into it, and really respected the other people sitting behind their desks who he played with, something that seems to be more and more uncommon these days.
What was your favorite moment with them?
I won't go into much detail since it was a rather personal conversation but just a few weeks after I joined the Guild, Archrose and I had a really good, deep, and personal conversation that lasted somewhere in the ballpark of 5-6 hours. We just mindlessly leveled up some lower toons in the tree people zones, and talked. And talked. Annnd talked. It was nice just to have the personal connection and conversation and that night I felt like I was talking to a life-long friend, rather than just another person on the internet.
What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
I've seen Archrose recruit multiple players to the guild and I've seen him actively go out of his way to spread his vast wealth of knowledge to those who want/need it. I know Archrose would not only be an active recruiter for vVv, but they would also uphold everything vVv stands for.
How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
Really can't complain about his activity, especially since I've been absent myself the past few months due to work, but perhaps hop on mumble a bit more (Something I think everyone could improve on XD). Also maybe normalize the names of all his characters/accounts, hard to remember so many account info's/names haha.
Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
Archrose would be a great fit in the vVv community, and moving forward I think he would be a very valuable asset to a future pvp team in whatever game he chooses. Very talented gamer, which is something I do Not say about people very often. Reminds me of myself in a way.
