Looking for a new server - older then most players in the ..

Archived from groups: alt.games.warcraft (More info?)

I'm currently playing a mage on skywall server (level 59). This server
seems dominated by one guild, and I'm not that hard-core of a player to join
that one.

I have yet to see any of the high end content and am a little bit bummed
about the thought of once again starting over. I just don't seem to be able
to find a guild that that I fit into.

I'd like to find a group of adults, preferably 35+ in age, but more so
maturity is what I'm looking for. My play times vary and am looking for a
very relaxed guild, not one that raids daily or has levels requirements and
such. I do play a lot when my real life allows it and therefore do level up
rather quickly.

I'm not looking to jump servers and immediately join a guild. I'm looking
for a place to go to that I can get to know folks and then decide on a
guild. Horde or Alliance doesn't matter, I am currently playing alliance
but wouldn't mind giving the horde side a go, if that's where this takes me.

If anyone has a good group going and has room for another, or even just
loves the server they are on I'd love to hear back from you all. Thanks so
much.

    If you're in Europe, several readers/posters in this group formed a
    wonderful guild on Sunstrider (PVP), Horde. This server is rather
    balanced in population, and one of those where you'll never, ever see a
    queue.

    The realms forum (unofficial of course) is at http://sunstrider.net

    We love to organize merry RP/PVP events with the alliance there.

    We are a friendly, welcoming, mature, and patient guild of altaholics,
    and are open for any player, any character, any level. We are definitely
    not hardcore in the sense that you would think - our highest level is a
    level 53 priest (played by Stoneskin), second highest is a level 51
    priest (played by me). If you want to know about our involvement in PVP,
    well let's say that we mostly enjoy it a lot, but not to the point that
    is generally seen on a PVP server. Highest ranks are me (Sergeant) and
    Saucey (Sergeant as well), and a general PVP objective for the guild is
    to make sure we all have fun fighting together in order for our
    teammates to reach the Grunt status (for the trinket). Our highest
    amount of active players at the same time is 14, and we reach it
    regularly nowadays.

    You can see our ad for new recruits there:
    http://sunstrider.net/showthread.php?p=4579#post4579

    and here is a quote of the Ad:

    Guild Name: <Cracked Sash Inc>

    Particularly Looking For: level 45-55 warriors, but that's just me .

    survive. Or not.

    We have no other ambition at the moment other than recruiting more
    people with more appropriate time schedules. The levels are starting to
    get spread out because of differences in playing pace, so if you're
    looking for buddies to come along and play at low-mid-high level, chill
    in and send a whisp in our general direction. Be wary that we welcome

    I'm in three guilds that I think are a lot of fun on two different
    servers. Two are RP guilds, one is non-RP PVP and PVE.

    I play an undead mage in the recently-created guild Immortalis on
    Bleeding Hollow. This is a PVP server. The guild is very helpful so far,
    and seems to be run by fairly mature folks. They contribute items and
    even money to lower level members, and help organize instance runs. They
    plan some organized activities to help members get better at PVP play as
    well. Mostly undead members.

    Also on Bleeding Hollow, I play three troll characters in Tooska Tribe,
    a roleplaying guild. All the members are trolls, and they speak a pidgin
    that was created by a linguistics guy you is a member (it's easy to
    learn). There is a relatively elaborate background story and even
    mythology that goes with Tooska. It can be a little bit of a pain to RP
    on a PVP server, but there are other guilds doing it too, most notably
    Shadowclan, which is a very large and welll-establish roleplaying guild
    for Orcs; they also play on Bleeding Hollow.

    Finally, I helped create WIDGET, a roleplaying guild for gnomes on a
    roleplaying server, Shadow Council. All of the members of WIDGET so far
    are adults, with a strong over-35 membership. WIDGET is silly, on
    purpose. It's entire purpose is to have a lot of fun with the sillier
    aspects of the gnome characters. WIDGET stands for the World Institute
    for Daring Gnomish Exploration and Tinkering, and it's a sort of cross
    between the National Geographic Society and the Impossible Mission
    Force, seasoned with a dash of secret criminal conspiracy. All the
    members play characters with back stories and distinctive personalities,
    and play as members of teams with silly codenames. WIDGET is all about
    the laughs. If you get interesteed in WIDGET, either take a look at the
    web site (http://www.livejournal.com/community/gnomesrushin/), or
    in-game on Shadow Council look for one of the Secret Ruling Cabal of the
    guild (the guild is called "The Institute"). The Secret Ruling Cabal
    consists of Blasto, Fangly, Frabble, Malvin, and Zooknie, or you can
    contact the head of Q Branch, named Quatherine.

    Sounds like the guild I'm in.
    We're only small though but we are all adults and we understand that people
    take the game seriously, but that it's not the most important thing in their
    lives so feel free to play when they want and not play when they can't or don't
    want to.

    Some people play all hours, some for a few hours every other week.

    The server I play on had a similar problem. For a while, it seemed that you
    must be in one of the two large guilds to see Molten Core from the inside.
    A bunch of people then founded "Genesis", a "meta-guild", for good players
    from many small guilds (or who aren't in any guild, like me), that do
    events together. We have an own channel and a forum, so it's almost exactly
    like a guild, except that it isn't one technically. We keep the size of the
    player pool at around sixty people (all of which were recommended by
    existing Genesis players), and we currently go to Molten Core twice a week.
    (And we're more successful right now than the said large guilds, but that's
    a different story.)

    So, it is possible to get to see the endgame content even without being in
    a large guild, but it may take some organization first. Though I'm a bit
    surprised that you already have these troubles at 59. I didn't have any
    difficulties getting into Scholomance, Stratholme, Dire Maul and UBRS. It
    was only after I was done with these that I hit the wall. So the situation
    may be worse on your server.

    You do understand that Skywall is a new server right? It's about a month
    old. Should not be expecting people looking for groups for high end
    instances until...say, the second month.

    I also play on Skywall. And I'm pretty sure that you are talking about
    Nightwind. Nightwind's main goal is to be the first guild to do everything.
    Basically the "hardcore players."

    There are other guilds out there that are going for high end instances too.
    But they are enjoying the game as they go, not powerleveling like maniacs.
    I left my level 60 priest to move to Skywall. I am also not in a hurry to
    do high end instances. I've done that before.

    A lot of people on Skywall also had that same idea on mind. That and people
    who are PvP refuges.

    How's that working out for you?

    I did the same thing because I already have a level 60 mage, and the
    most fun thing to do with him is PVP, but the PVP situation on his
    server is not as much fun as the situation on a different server where I
    have characters. So I made a new mage on the PVP-oriented server and
    started following the guide.

    I'm not going to hit 60 in seven days, because I have other things to
    do, and because I just don't want to work that hard at grinding.
    However, without trying all that hard, I created my character late
    Sunday night, and last night he was at level 21. I figure level 1 to
    level 21 in three days of not trying very hard is pretty good.

    Try a lower population server, and try horde. This isn't 100% but,
    overall, this seems to be an older, more mature crowd.

    My experience is actually quite the opposite. While Horde players often
    seem to be "more hardcore", they also seem to be younger. More into the
    "evil" aspect, more prone to wanting to be "cool" (an Undead is infinitely
    more "cool" than a human). Maturity is relative, though. I certainly have
    met twits on both sides, though not overly many (I do play on an European
    server with a complicated name, though, so perhaps that plays a role, too.)

    I want to thank everyone for responding to my posting you all seem very
    friendly in this newsgroup and I truly appreciate it. :)

    There are a few guilds that were suggested and also emailed to me that I am
    planning on looking into further. My lack of response to this posting is
    because I have out of town company this week. Daughter is graduating High
    School so a very busy time for me.

    Will be making some new characters next weekend and hopefully will get a
    chance to say hello to a few of you in game.

    Thanks again for such a nice friendly response from someone that has never
