This is a recent addition to the member testimonial thread from Lawlz/Lauren
I started playing World of Warcraft about six months after it was launched. From that time until now I have ben in a handful of guilds, some raiding and some social. I've known hardcore raiders, and I've been a hardcore raider, and most of the time, being a hardcore raider also meant being just a little bit elitist, especially if you were doing well compared to other guilds.
I recently joined Tribe after looking for a social raiding guild or the World of Warcraft forum. My husband and I had come off a 2 year break from WoW, all our friends had left WoW and we found ourselves in the market for a guild. I have to admit, when I was initially offered to apply to Tribe I was a little hesitant. I had known raiders of this caliber, and I wasn't sure that I wanted to be in another elitist guild. We decided to apply and see what we thought.
During the application process, I chatted with a couple of members of the guild on Mumble and in game. They seemed really nice, but I was still worried. After our application was accepted, my worries evaporated within 24 hours.
Somehow, this guild has kept its heart and stayed humble. In my entire eight years of playing this game, I have never felt more comfortable in such a big guild with such amazing raiding progression. I've only been here for a couple of months, and I have laughed, cried and had an absolute blast with these guys and girls. Blizzard has suddenly become big on saying "WoW is better with friends", well I honestly feel like I've been adopted into a family upon joining Tribe. Where in the gaming world these days do you get a group of gamers that knows each others first name? That actually want to know the person they're playing with, rather than the character the person is playing? Not many places.
Gamers are so often seen as anti social beings. People who would rather live with their heads inside a make believe world than socialise with real people. MMO's are the exception, but even so, it's so rare to have a guild that is so close knit.
I'm very thankful to have found myself here. Thank you, Tribe. You're kinda awesome =)
Thanks Lauren, you're kinda awesome too!!!
