Don't be deterred by either rank or achievement. We're actually a very friendly non-elitist bunch of players who consider an applicant's character and reliability rather than his level or membership status.
I've PM'd you accordingly
If this is so, then why did you only give a reason for not having enough team games completed for letting me in? nothing about character or anything.....
Hi jdw, it's very valid point you raise if TOFU only considered an applicant's character and reliability - for which you have exemplary credentials imo (your poor ratings are not justified at all and your chat is always honest and friendly even in the face of adversity, so kudos for that).
It was a bit awkward in your case. If you've heard the phrase "You can't teach an old dog new tricks" then in your case this really applies. With close to 8,000 games played you are really about singles speed, with very little success in team games. There was nowhere in the squad where we could envisage your particular talents being utilized, and in my experience singles specialists generally make poorer team mates than a relative noob who is happy to learn and follow a strategy.
My response to TheForgivenOne was really to indicate that no-one should feel he/she is too unworthy to apply. All applicants will be given due consideration and we are quite willing to bring onboard a low-ranking freemium as a trainee if that's what we think is right. Somehow I think you are above joining us on that basis, given your rank and experience in your particular field.
May I ask....weren't you in Nemesis a short while ago? I see they accepted your application.
They're so polite and thorough!
