    2 years ago I made a leap put myself out there and join RoH through the swtor division from watching videos such as Swtorista it wasn't until later that Aravail who I had been watching for the 3 months before was part of the same community youtube such a small world 😛. At this time I began to become independent diagnosed with Aspergers my family overcompensated for me in terms of control and shelter the home I am in was bought with money my grandfather left me when he died because he knew better than most how hard it was for me to interact with the world. My income is through rent money of the master bedroom and my own small self created job as a proof reader for future self-publish authors I tried working for a publishing house but my disability allowed others to take advantage of me under the guise of friendship I would help with their work on top of my own anyway anyway its in the past am happier working for myself.

     

    Before going on a little background is required I had only played WoW with my father who always insisted that no one on the internet is my friend and to never tell them where I am I thought everyone had been told this but in my rebellious youth 18 (late bloomer 😛 ) I secretly used the account he set up for me to play on other realms join other guilds because all i ever wanted while growing up is people to game with. My father  grew furious with me I couldn't understand why in his own misguided way he thought he was keeping me safe...too bad it was scarring and during 2016 we had a fight and our relationship has never been the same sadly I stopped playing any MMO's after that fight something that brought me so much pain I didn't want it in my life. I put my head down and I worked from 8am to 6pm getting crappy jobs and pay but it gave me enough independence to want more from my life little did I know it would cost me another family member after my grandfather passed away my uncle and I grew close but as he hit his late 70's he had to give up living in his family home to live in a nursing home I took over the place looking after it instead of rent....couldn't afford the place otherwise. Taking him away from his home ultimately killed him three weeks later he passed in his sleep he must have known because in his will he left the property to me he had no children of his own and believed while I don't have the last name after the fight with my father I have all but taken my mother last name that it should stay with a Griffin. Depression came around how can it not the number of people I interacted with was slowly fading playing games by myself no longer stave the pangs of loneliness then came RoH.

     

    With a small income I decided to take a leap after binge-watching youtube videos about swtor I enjoyed the storyline videos that Aravail did then came a recommendation video made by Swtorista after watching it took a lot for me to write out the application I was so self-conscious about my answers I messaged the swtor RO at the time in a panic that I forgot to even post it! looking back I can laugh about it now because I was so focused on leveling my first toon Vannatos the last half of my name shorten is from thankfully :D I was able to be a bit more conservative about my answers this time. 😛 When I saw that RoH had a WoW division I felt something for the first time concerning WoW a sense of longing with a steady income I could afford it and after a month of being with the swtor division I switch from that one to WoW creating a whole new account away from my father away from his achievements because he had got them all nothing I had was earned by myself so it felt liberating to play WoW from scratch. I had always been interested in pvp during my rebellious youth I became second in command of a horde pvp guild before being found out by my father and forced to leave it and there was an opening to take the pvp position I came in with such grand promises that only a few months of achieving nothing I felt embarrassed by my failure and retire quickly. From then on I lost interest in wow but not the community I hang around watching from afar doing Random BG's to pass the time an occasional raid but PvE is not really my thing. Fast forward to the last part of the previous year after bouncing through ESO that flame out quickly I return to wow around  April I think I created Jinghoo best damn monk panda on the alliance side of Azeroth :DI learned how to tank and did so quite well at the end of Legion and into the start of Battle for Azeroth and once again the officer position for PvP came around I had mixed thoughts about this but it was the members of the WoW division that convince me to take on the role once again and I would like to think it has been far more successful. After this week it has been....a trial drama both in RL and community am not ashame to admit almost broke me but the support from everyone from members to my assistant and my DC gave me the fortitude to halt my retreat into the protective shell I created to survive high school and the interactions in RL and come out...not stronger but not as battered...baby steps.

     

    I write this to not only celebrate my third year in this community but to the friendships, I have forged I did not write this to garner sympathy or to make anyone feel sorry for me nor do I want anyone to treat me differently after reading this but to express how important this community has become to me. Not only for my physical health but mentally as well two years ago I would never be able to do this. To put so much of myself out here for some 550 members last time I check how many people call this place home I hope everyone continues in whatever work they do to grow this community whether it be showing kindness to putting content on platforms such as youtube and Twitch... Now! "rubs hands together" lets see how many people i can get to wish me happy birthday because in 5minutes it will be! :D

    Real thing in Aussie

  9. @Rokoshy if your worried about lag then try and play turn base it only RTS where you would have some trouble I remember our first Stellaris game Nic was having so much trouble we had to play on slowest speed for 3 hours turns out all he needed to do was to turn down the settings but for turn base games while there would be lag it wouldn't be detrimental to you
  10. Hey everyone reading this am just taking a little break from organizing things as wow pvp officer am rescheduling a few events so am not entirely sure when I able to start a new game so if someone else steps up to host please do so until then I believe the next game will be Endless Legend so make sure to grab it when it on special as well as many DLC's you can get
  11. @Rokoshy The only way to get better is to play with people AI is predictable AI is safe it only with people that can sharpen your skills and have fun at the same time
  12. Uh if there is anyone looking for a good TV show I definitely recommend Kingdom came out this year only 6 episodes an hour long it already getting a second season made in Korea so there will be subtilties but oh my god so good bugger Hollywood and their takes on the zombie uprising with an awesome twist at the end I didn't see coming can't wait till the second season comes out

      @Feldspar oh it is usually I wouldn't watch something made from another country because I proofread for a living the last thing I want is to is do more reading but I watch The Train to Busan and was like...maybe I should give this a try not entirely sure it is made from the same people but I certainly enjoyed that TV show more then FTWD or TWD 

  13. Hey all with the completion of the Fourth Stellaris Game there is a cry for a new Game so here are some thoughts Endless Legends, Hearts of Iron 4, Age of Wonders 3, EU 4, Crusader Kings 2 the more people that voice their opinions the better it will be because as everyone knows players are better than AI
  14. mwhahaha awesome session with the use of L-Gates I was able to declare a war of vassalization on Nova and the Soviets bent the knee with the agreement of the others this is the last session of the Fourth Game with me coming in 4th behind three Fallen Empires then Mal then Nic 7th was Marbass 9th was Phoenix and Nova trail behind at 12th thank you for everyone that joined I will decide what game will be played next time!
  15. mwhahaha another session and two Empires have fallen between @Marbass and I have conquered the Commonality dividing what little planets were left and the second war brought an end to the Tebandon State as they bent the knee soon they will join my Empire as domestic servants I think carting to the rich and wealthy of my people with the threats to my southeast wipe out or in my control my attention is drawn to the east where the Alan Tranquil League...filthy democratic that they are has sign the second Federation Treaty drawing in my most hated rival The Republican Sakyt even now they are building a Federation Fleet the time to strike is soon with my newly built Battleships we shall bring down the Tranquil League but the galaxy is a living breathing organism in itself clamp on both sides by powerful neighbors the Tranquil League has spread through a wormhole bordering my only ally in the galaxy is there potential will he see the threat now to do so I have open the L-gate fearing the worst I was not ready to see a fledging Drake emerge taming him I have brought the young Drake under my control...perheaps when he grows he will become as dangerous as his sire who nows but the secrets of the quaretine zone belong to me with it I may find resources that will make the battle ahead that much easier...still next time the galaxy shall BURN!
