Please introduce yourself. We would like to know more about your background and experience in WoW, especially vanilla WoW (private servers included)

My name is Giannis, I am currently working as a Data Collection Analyst for the FA and I have worked as a Football Scout for a Premier League club.

In terms of my experience in WoW, I have played actively TBC until Cata, where I was raiding week in week out in different semi-hardcore guilds mainly as a MT (warrior in the guild that I have played with). After Cata, I didn't really like the expansions that followed, so I was more of an on and off player doing mainly PvP in those expansions. Also, I didn't play much of vanilla WoW as I started playing in 2006.

Which previous Classic guilds have you been a part of?

I was the GM of <Randoms> Earthshaker EU, and we decided to shut the guild at its peak only recently. The other guys at the leadership had irl commitments so I was kinda left alone to coordinate and lead 40 man raid groups. However, a few factors that brought us into this decision was the change of the culture of our raiders after getting BWL on farm mode , as they started to prioritise loot over the greater good of the guild, they emphasized more on their alts as well as the change of mindset throughout time since some people were more casual/raid loggers from what we expected them to be.

Notable achievements as a guild:

- Had everything on Farm Mode and we were clearing BWL>MC>Ony under 2.5 hrs in one day.
- We were the 9th Horde guild to clear BWL during the first week of its release.

Why are you applying to Senseless?

My initial thought was to continue playing with my friends on Earthshaker who contributed in forming our previous guild, but this is not the case anymore us many of them will be quitting WoW and the ones who will continue playing the game they want to be more of a "raid-loggers"

I currently seek to join a hardcore guild to experience the side of WoW that I wasn't able to do so far when I was leading Randoms (i.e. contest all World Bosses, raid at a competitive level with a guild, speedruns and maximize my experience on WoW classic). That said, I have identified Senseless to be a suitable guild for me after the research I have done, and it will be my honor to be given a chance to join the guild as a trial and potentially be a raider with you. Arguably Senseless is the best Horde guild on Firemaw and one of the well respected ones around the world. I have to add at this point, that I will be more than happy to transfer from Earthshaker to Firemaw to join you, since your rules and mindset completely matches mine and how I want to play the game from now on.

How much time will you be able to invest/play and raiding. In a vanilla guild this often means long commitment while waiting for all the content to be released and cleared. How do you feel about having to do same old raids over and over again?

My main goal is to go all the way until the end of the content in Wow Classic at a really high and competitive level, as I haven't had the chance to play vanilla WoW. As of the future I will continue playing in TBC as well. I can guarantee that my attendance will be at 100%, something that I was doing already, bringing all my class consumables and getting every single buff as I am used to do. Also, I am the player who will follow the guild in organised events and activities (i.e. PvP groups, dungeons spamming, helping other people with attunments and etc.)

In regards of doing old raids over and over again, this is something that it doesn't really bother me as I find it fun within a well established atmosphere within guild that shares a nice and mature environment and works at the more efficient way.

Please link a screenshot of your raiding UI with the applied class (you can use https://imgur.com/). Make sure that your keybinds and addons are set up, as we are very interested in inspecting them.
Which specc will you be using with lvl 60 (Use https://classicdb.ch/?talent)?
Pls show us your current Gear using the following link: https://classic.wowhead.com/gear-planner
Do you have a problem with any of the requirements written above(summoner, one fixed profession etc.)?

Not at all, I will easily get a level 20 Warlock in less than a day and I am more than happy to get engineering and drop BS, as I was the dedicated armorsmith of my guild.

What will you choose as second profession?

My second profession will be mining, but I am more than willing to get a second profession that will benefit the guild as a whole if needed.

Would you be willing to adjust your specc for the benefit of the raid?

This shouldn't be a problem at all and I will be more than happy to do so, if it will work for the great good of the raiding team. I have a good tanking gear as well (6 T1 and 3 T2), if it will be of any use of the raiding team.

There will be specific raidaddons that every raider will have to install, are you ok with that?

Yes, that's no problem at all.

We require all our Raiders to use Discord during raids and for out-of-game chat/announcements/world boss alerts. We expect everyone to have it configured. Are you fine with that? here is the link to our guilds Discord https://discord.gg/nFXpxcR and pls post post your discord tag so we can contact you if needed

That's fine, and I can contribute to the scouting for world bosses as well. My discord tag is "Armarollas#0595"

Is there someone currently in the guild that could or would vouch for you?

Unfortunately no, as I am in another server at the moment.

Favourite Vanilla encounter(not mandatory)

What are your goals and expectations from the guild or the game?

My expectation in regards to the guild is to offer me the hardcore experience that I have already mentioned above, which I didn't have the chance so far. A guild with the same mindset, serious and a friendly atmosphere, that wants to be as a efficient as possible. People who will have an approach of guild>individuals where everyone will be respected.

Why do you think you would be a bigger asset to the guild over someone else?

I strongly believe that my experience as a GM of a well established (semi-hardcore) guild in another server have offered me the chance to know what leadership can face, both bad and good things in the short and long term. This makes me aware of the expectations that you guys are having from raiders - i.e. being punctual, tactical aware, follow instructions, do not discuss about loot during raids, respect others and offer help when needed, and most importantly adopt a mindset of raiding team/guild over yourself.

I think I tick all those boxes above and I carry those values, so I would consider myself a team player who can adopt easily, follow instructions and can be a great addition. Also, I can offer my opinion on matters of my class, micro-management and whatever else is asked from me as I have a good amount of experience from my previous position as a GM - I can't stress enough though that this will NEVER be done on my own initiative and that's not my intention.

Anything you would like us to know, for example a day you can not play at all weekly(not mandatory)?

If I have a job commitment to attend a football game, my play time on that specific day is less compared to the others. However, this has not affected my attendance before as I showed up at every raid so far of my previous guild, by leading it with the other raid leaders.

Hi there,

I haven't finished reading the application yet, but I wasn't sure if you realised server transfers to Firemaw was locked at the moment?

Cheers

Hi Midget,

Thanks for the quick reply. I am aware that I can't create a character on Firemaw as it's "Locked", but having checked the "WoW shop" before, it seems that I have the option to make a transfer to a locked server.

Thanks
