I've been away so long...
« on: April 18, 2019, 12:03:39 PM »
Greetings all, I'm just logging in and checking the forum. I was wondering how this group has progressed over the past few years. I guess that most of you don't know me. Before SWToR was even released I found myself here to this guild through the official forums. I found a group of people who have guided me to step over social anxieties, who cared and looked after those who call this place their home.

For the last 5-6 years I've had allot of changes in my life which were really wonderful, but I had to "retire" as a regular member. But this home with same minded gamers was far from forgotten. Watching the video's from back then and how this forum has evolved to what it is today made me rather nostalgic to be honest, which made me thankful for the good time's I've had within these walls.
It was very encouraging to see that this guild is still rocking, which is purely a result of dedicated people committing to the same value's and holding on to that what is right and honorable, even in times of conflict or change.

It's my wish and hope that all is well with each member here, whether you are a senior member or if you just joined today. And even though life can be rough and unfair, within these walls are other people who understand and are willing to lend an ear or give advise when requested. Such a place is not standard by any means, and it will take work to keep this group of people moving forward. Old leaders step down, but we are also thankful for new leaders to rise in their place. But the core of this guild remains the same, like a banner that waives above the battlefield

Thank you all for how you are and what you represent, brothers and sisters, and may Honor be your guide as you press through a world that can be very dark, but also a wonderful experience with beauty and piece to be admired.


Eagle,

EAGLE!!
Hows it going brother, hadnt heard from you in forever.
Does this mean you are going to get more active in gaming again?

I think most people in the guild are floundering, looking or waiting for a game to capture their interest, most of my time seems to be split between Path of Exile and Elderscrolls online.

hey Eagle; the last couple years I have been in and out of SWTOR.  I stopped last fall just after 5.10 dropped.  I may hit it up again in the next expansion.


and for those of you that wonder how the heck you got stuck with me; Eagle was the guy that recruited me to TG.

@Inter!:
Awesome to see you’re still here! I’m most active these days in GW2 and SWToR. I still have my lvl 50 commando on the Star Forge server so perhaps I can join in on an event in the future. The only thing that prevents me from participating in-game would be the time difference; 6pm Pacific is 3am where I live.
But I do have a strong desire to be active for TG again, I’m just not sure yet how. Perhaps with applications which is an easy first step.

@Glagnar:
There were some major changes made to the game when I started playing again, one of the more profound ways is that it’s way easier to score light/dark side points. The cartelmarket has been expanded (EA hehe..) and some HUD’s but Im still finding new ones since I’m not that active for long. I recently was able to afford a new laptop that can actually run SWToR properly; GW2 had 10 fps on the lowest graphical settings in some regions.

@Blank:
Hey, good to see you here, hope you’re well

@Madmartigan
When I “discovered” that you had taken the mantle of Guild leader, I have to be honest, I was kinda proud of being there when you came through the gates of TG, and I’m honored by your comment that you remembered.

@Sylent Jay:
Thank you for your kind words, and I’m glad to see you have the same energy I remember seeing from you before I took a step back. I definitely have to come check out the Discord, ill be checking if I see people from the “old gang”. I didn’t want to use that term in my initial post, but there it is


I’m very honored by all your greetings and warm welcome. It’s so encouraging to return after so many years to see that I wasn’t forgotten. I think it’s only appropriate that I share a bit of what I have been doing these last few years.
So back in 2013 I was still heavily involved on XboxLive, SWToR was something I had to quit some time before that. I ended up giving my console away with a whole stack of games because something changed in me about priorities in life. After this I met a wonderful girl who became my fiancée. I’m skipping through the years quick but we ended up buying an apartment and we married last year. I changed my job from sales to customer service for several webshops where I work nowadays as product manager.
I used to pursue a career in television, but due to a lack of several factors I had to seek a job elsewhere. But for now I’m happy where I am, and able to pay the bills.

I’m not sure what the future holds, perhaps I return someday in a new game for TG, and if there are plans to create a EU part for TG perhaps I can lend a hand. Things are setteling down at my work and I can finally take some time to start visiting the forums on a regular basis. I’ll think I’ll stay around the applications, and I got photoshop in case I can assist with graphics, we’ll see.
Anyway, thank you all again for the warm welcome, and that I was not forgotten.

Welcome back, Eagle. o7

Do you still have your Star Citizen account? We're actively working in the background on the biggest recruitment for the division since it's inception (and by active I mean regularly meeting and making headway on revamping organization, graphics, etc) with plans to roll it out later this year.

We're actively using the Discord server for day to day discussion in addition to the forum so be sure to PM me there and I'll tag you as a rightful Member with the rest of us! Plus any other games you want tagged for. I appreciate your post above.


The Guardians fleet needs you, citizen. Suit up today!

@Meridian:
My 325A Fighter has been sitting in my hanger since june 2014, and with an incredible of -2 fps on my previous laptop, there was no way I could play this game. Tried to sell the plane but someone (honestly can't remember anymore who) recommended me to keep the plane just in case I ever want to play. Now that I have a new laptop, I'm installing the game as I write this post, and hope for the best.
But I'm intrigued by your post, and I think it would be an honor to play a roll, even if it seems rather small. I'll PM you soon and share which time's I'm available. Participating in the chat is gonna be a challenge because of the timezone, but perhaps with any other duties we can work something out.
