Hello. First off I'd like to introduce myself since this is my first ever post on GWOnline. My name is Opulent. :)
[ op·u·lent/ˈäpyələnt/ Adjective: Ostentatiously rich and luxurious or lavish ]
Lol ^ isnt that stupid to put. :p
Anyway, I've been playing competitive games since I first put my hands on an Xbox controller at the end of Halo 2's life. I continued playing competitively into Halo 3 and the CoD franchise experiencing limited success on gamebattles. Since then I've moved to PC with a love of the mouse and keyboard feel. ( Not to mention the generally more respectable community. ) I spent a lot of time in PvP on WoW climbing to 2k rating ( dont get me wrong, i know its no feat to brag about ) and have in the last year or so been playing games off and on, as I haven't felt any game keep me extremely interested; until i saw GW2.
Guild Wars interested me extremely for several reasons:
I loved WoW, but hated the imbalanced PvP.
I just plain love MMO's.
Any game with an out-of-the-box competitive mode is bound to strive as an eSport.
I love being able to have fun competing and GW2 looks like an ***-load of fun.
So, since i first heard about GW2 I've been hyping as many of my friends up as i could in efforts to raise a community of my own to play with. Since then however, two of my teammates ( for years ) have been accepted onto a Halo Reach team whom they will be living and competing with. I was asked to join them but I find myself more drawn to GW than anything else.
So this leads me here, I'm looking for a community of people like-minded with myself. PvP oriented, Level-headed, and Competitive. That being said, I'm in no way an elitist, but i do have much more fun while succeeding. I would appreciate any direction that can be given to me: a guild name, a server name, maybe even a player name who you know is starting some kind of PvP oriented community. Thanks for reading btw, i know its been a little bit much.
