10) Why do you feel that you would be a good addition to the HavocWoW Staff Team and what do you bring to an already thriving Staff Team? I want to help this community in anyway I can, I hope to bring players in and keep them playing. I want this community to prosper and I will go to great lengths to see it succeed.

12) Briefly describe yourself within 350 or less words. (Please include your first name, where you live, your personal interests and your age). My name is Jacob, I live in California and some of my personal interests include: Coding, VideoGames, Surfing, and Smoking that good Dank. Right now  I am currently a broke college student and my major I am studying in is Computer Science. I am 19 years old and will be turning 20 in September. An interesting fact about me is that I do not have an ID. :)

12) Anything you would like to add? (optional question) I am a chill guy that loves this community and will hopefully provide the best experience for the players. I typically don't go for gamemaster positions but I love this community too much so I had to make a post cause who knows maybe I will actually be a Gm.

Scenario Questions [Mandatory]

1. A Player makes a ticket asking you to give him items because he is unable to get them himself, such as original Legendary Weapons, how do you respond? I will diligently help this player and lead him in the right direction and encourage him to pursuit his/her desired weapon. If the player is still struggling with figuring out what to do, I will do the research for them to solve their problem as quick and as complete as I possibly can. I will  then thoughtfully explain to the player on how to use the Item Requester where he could possibly other weapons for transmogs.

2. You have muted a player for being disrespectful towards the Staff, he then makes a Ticket cussing, insulting and persistently insults you and/or other staff members, what do you do? I will immediately try to minimize the situation and respond to the ticket as quickly as I could and try to calm the player down, and urge him to stop harassing the staff before he gets himself into more trouble. Then I will explain to the player why they were muted after they have calmed down and on how to avoid any future mutes.

3. You find a player hacking on our Server, what do you do to minimize the situation, if you're unable to ban him? I will first recording the player fly hacking to get proof that he is actually hacking, I will then freeze the player in place after I have obtained enough conclusive evidence that he is 100% cheating and then I would notify a higher ranked GM to come and handle the situation from their.

4. Your friends are asking you to host an Event so they're able to get a new mount or another available reward they currently do not have, how do you proceed?  I will tell them that they are out of luck that I will not host an event for them and explain to them that I don't play favorites and that just because they are my friend doesn't mean I owe them anything, and that I will only host events when they have been planned before hand not just for a group of friends.

5. You first come online and you notice that there are 2 other Staff Members online yet there is still a high number of tickets active but have remained un-answered, what would you do to help but avoid the same situation in the future?  I will start working on the tickets as soon as I get on and message I would message the other two staff members to help me with the tickets.  After finishing the heavy load of tickets I will then confront the other two staff members on why they let so many un-answered tickets pileup and they better give me a good enough response for me not to notify  the owner for them not doing their jobs. I will also take SS to get evidence of these lazy staff members  so I have proof that it was not my fault for the influx of un-answered tickets.

 

Thank you for reading, If you have any questions feel free to ask,

Much love cx,

  Good luck mate ;)

1.) Throughout all the private server's I have played Havoc-WoW has stuck out to me like a sore thumb. I absolutely love this server, I have fully played the server and squeezed the content dry and I enjoyed every moment of it.  The community on Havoc-Wow is like no other, I want the community flourish as much as possible , and I want to help the wonderful players of Havoc-Wow in anyway needed. I want new players to come and stay and make Havoc-WoW their "home" and for them to actuality enjoy the server like I did when I first started Havoc and continue to enjoy it. I want to make the experience for players one of the best out of all the 255 servers out their, and also to bring as many new and old active players to Havoc. Answering the question at hand I want to be part of the Havoc-Wow Team to help the community and I will go to great lengths to make sure this aspiration of mine, of building and furthering the community of Havoc and making it one of the best 255 server you will experience.

2.) Being a computer science major I have dealt with a countless number of difficult situations in means of coding. Currently I am learning java and dealing with Data structures and algorithms. Learning java has engaged me more into finding the solution for any difficult situation( IRL and online ) I am always asking questions and looking for the best way to resolve the problem. I am very capable of adapting in situations when one solution doesn't work and I am very persistent and wont give up until the problem is resloved.

3.) I don't give up when something is too hard, I always put %100 effort in everything I do and want to further put my effort into Havoc in any way I can. I am a team player and work well with others, I am a very motivated person in school life and gaming life. I am a very fast learner and I also am adept at looking for alternative routes/predict problems to any given situation. I don't know if these count as qualities but some of the programming languages I know are Python, Java, C, and some C++.;)

4.) The biggest change I would like to see as a player is to making pvp more relevant on the server. I think the first thing to do is to obviously make pvp more balance, you could go about this many ways like: banning customs in pvp (Note this might make players stay away from pvp cause they cannot use their op weapons, but I feel like it would be the best thing to do to get more players pvping.) , giving out better rewards for winning a battleground ( Might be difficult because it might entice players to cheat in battlegrounds for rewards.) Another change I would like to see is more updates change-logs given to the players ( Just like a quick forum post on whats changes happen to the server and what to expect in future updates kinda like a sneak peak to get the community excited for changes and for them to understand what is going on with the server and why it is being changed.) It would be nice to inform the players at least every two weeks if possible to keep them engaged in the server. 

Thanks for the questions DarkFear! California is great I love it :) if there are any other questions please ask .

Much love cx,

-Takzul

Greetings, Takzul. By my oppinion the answers you've given in your application which is neatly made are showing very clearly that you are a solo person, I've never heared of ToToWoW, but here we are teammates and we are used to working in a team. Your mandatory question number 5 shows exactly your mentality. Also you've said that your longest period as a Game Master is about 3 months, okay, but can you please tell us other servers when we except TotoWoW ? What motivates you the most about becoming a game master ? Why do you think we should choose you ?  What are your advantages and why do you think you'll work fine with everyone of our team ? 

If I have to consider by the written up by you my answer would be negative. Although you've answered some of your questions very well. Don't take every question in the application format personal because some of the staff members are expecting to speak in plural number especially in the mandatory scene questions. Still it's not up to me, so I wish you good luck and you can answer the questions I asked you so the other staff members can get a better tablature of you.

Hello, Claus. First of all thank you for your feedback about my application and your questions. :) 

        Personally yeah I am a solo person and I agree that question 5 kinda makes me look self-absorbed. I answered it that way because of my past experiences working on different servers, where the Staff team were more hostile and out to get you which is a terrible work environment that ends up just causing drama and chaos. I would like to apologize for assuming that Havoc was like that. Getting back on track, I will like to elaborate more about my "solo personality". Assuming that what you mean by this is "me only looking out for my self or not being a team player" In this case I would like to explain that I am very capable of working as a team and i'm not scared to work with others to figure out a solution. If I am being honest I prefer working in a team because then I would not have to do all the heavy lifting by myself. However I don't like not being able to share my opinion about something and if I don't like something I will say something about it. I think this has to do with me living in California and going to college where this is most prevalent. But overall I work well with others I like to share ideas and comment on ideas of others, and i'm more than happy to back up my fellow staff members on a given situation even if I don't agree with them ( but I will speak up and say my thoughts and opinion but at the end of the day I will take my teammates back almost %100 of the time.

In response to "Also you've said that your longest period as a Game Master is about 3 months, okay, but can you please tell us other servers when we except TotoWoW ?"

              Typically I don't go for game master positions on servers and that is because i'm not willing to stick to a particular server I like to move around a lot. But however in rare cases I do actually like the server I will go for these positions. So I really don't have a ton of GM experience, but another server I was GM on was Divine-Wow probably don't know this server either but is was basically a copy of cascade wow and I was only a gm for a month before the server shutdown(which kinda sucked because I just got gm on the server).

In response to "What motivates you the most about becoming a game master ?"

             The thing that motivates me the most of being a game master is that I absolutely love to help people and especially if it is a server that I care about. I will go out of my way to help someone and this has to due with my personality. Even not being a game master I try to do my best of helping the players on Havoc to make them enjoy the server more, its in my nature to help people.

In response to "Why do you think we should choose you ?" 

           I think you should choose me because I have a lot of experience on the server and I am willing to put the time in. I'm a really laid back easy going guy and all of my intentions are good. I don't want GM for my self needs or anything like that , I want to be a GM to help the community in anyway I can because I care for it. That is the reason why I made a game master application in the first place so I can help.

In response to "What are your advantages and why do you think you'll work fine with everyone of our team ?"

            Some of my advantages are that I can be very persistent, I'm very hardworking, I'm reliable, brutally honest, and loyal. I think I will work great with everyone on the team, I know / had conversations with most of the Havoc-Wow Team and I like them all a lot. I think that the Havoc-Wow team is a great bunch of people that are all unique in their own ways and I would love to be part of that.

I hope that I answered all of your questions. If you have any more feel free to ask. Thank you again Claus.

Much love cx, 

-Takzul
