    Name: Sinbad/Duel, STEAM_0:0:70631544
    Age: 19
    Warns: 4
    Country of residence: Canada
    Timezone: EST
    How much time do you have on the server? 686 hours.
    Do you own a Microphone: [YES/NO] Yes
    Referral(s): [What administrator recommended you to apply?] No one
    About yourself: [Minimum 1 paragraph] Hey there, I'm currently a college student in a transfer program, finishing up a diploma in the Liberal Arts before transitioning to most likely double major in Philosophy and Cognitive/Positive Psychology for another two years. Seeing as I'm on-break in between semesters and quit my job a few weeks back (Don't get me started on it, I'll throw a fit), I've been having a lot of down time during the day, hence making this application.

    I'm a huge gamer obviously, my favourite genres being anything strategy/shooter related, preferring RTS rather than turn-based, and RPG. My favourite games would have to be the Kingdom Hearts franchise, the Halo franchise, Counter-Strike, and the Total War series. I found a really nice sweet spot in between my Shooter/strategy/RPG fetish with MRP, hence why I've been clocking hours into this server non-stop.I'm highly-competitive, and used to previously hop on into the competitive scenes for smaller Indie games such as Insurgency, Soldier Front, and did a bit of ESEA dabbling after getting GE in CSGO a few times. I founded the Insurgency team (now retired) named Hold It Down (HiD) which undefeated in the TGL, and played on both the reserve and main teams of Shooting Aliens (SA) for the DGL.

    Outside of gaming I'm really into reading and writing, but mostly reading. My collection of books I read has its own stand in the office room in the house, and the worst part of it is since its out of place usually for people these days to hold a miniature library, people always ask me about it. It's a shitty conversation starter, and unless you want me to delve two hours into explaining the Socratic Method or Deontological ethics, please never bring it up. I'm planning on starting a novel after my first two years of college, and I've got the initial story-line for it already labelled out, with its characters and plot points.


    I'm also, oddly enough, really down-to-earth at times. I like to spontaneously poke fun and it seems out-of-character at times, but I also have a solid base as my personality that's unwavering. behind all the light-heartedness I exemplify at times. Although the community and the game bring out my more vocal and opinionated side at times, I'm fairly quiet in real life and pretty stoic. Not much gets me unsettled or angry.

    Past experiences as staff: [optional] None (Staffed TTT servers about four years ago, but it was so long ago I've forgotten all about it)

    Why should we choose you over other applicants? [minimum 1 paragraph] I guess the most standout-ish reason would have to be my experience in-game. I've been through all the levels of in-game experience, including leadership, from the low enlisted ranks to becoming a sub-faction leader. I've had the rules during this time changed, been broken (by myself), and been reported as well. I've got a good grasp as for the do's and don'ts of the staff rules because of it, and even the grey areas where nuance is needed to decide whether something is being broken or not, I've experienced first-handedly. Recently as a sub-faction leader, I've gotten a pseudo taste of how it is to be staff, since all the men under my command are my responsibility, so becomes my responsibility to explain to them the rules and proper understanding of conduct. Because of my experience, I can understand how in certain situations the rules would apply to it, and make decisions off that inference. A recent example would be of when a few days ago, Afghani's would be driving their vehicles next to US and blowing it up by them. From a regular interpretation, they're in the clear because the logs wouldn't show that they rdm'd, however it would still fall under minging (FaiLRP) /att-rdm through the loop-holing rule we use, and regardless would still be punishable. As a sub-faction leader it was my responsiblity to inform those who were involved of this, even though I'm not staff.

    Did you read the staff rules: Sinbad

    Edit: Forgot to space in between a paragraph, whoops.
    Edit 2: Decided to change my in-game name so I updated it here, sorry for being fickle lmao
    Edit 3: Added Steam ID
