My story starts when I became a Wrath baby, and started playing when I bought myself WoW for Christmas in 2009. I levelled slowly initially, swearing that I wouldn't join a guild, as I just wanted to experience content at my own pace and in my own way. I didn't know much about the game really, but I was looking for something to fill my time whilst I waited for Dragon Age to come out, and just wanted an RPG to keep my boredom at bay until that was going to arrive. So I gave it a try and became hooked. Eventually finding WoW Insider and Thottbot, before realising that there is so much more that you can't do by yourself (I know, I pretty much lived in a cave back then!). So I joined a guild and it opened my eyes to so many other aspects of the game. I even got to down The Lich King the summer before Cata came out. It also broadened my horizons to other sites and eventually I heard about, and started listening to, Convert to Raid.
I was listening to the podcast for quite a while when I heard Pat and the Guys mention about setting up their own guild. I was playing on EU servers at the time (I'm from England) and thought that it would be a great idea if someone in the EU did something like that? But for a long time, I just listened enviously whilst going about my daily WoW business. However after the breakup of my marriage late last year, (my wife is a WoW player too), I was cast out of the guild that we were in. I wanted to play and I wanted to raid, but my working hours were out of the ordinary and 99% of guilds on Twisting Nether EU all raid at times during the week that I am still at work. Also more and more people were moving to that server. 5.4 hit and server waiting times were starting to occur, and then getting worse and worse. So I quit for a little while. It was also around that time that GameBreaker were starting up their guilds, but when their EU guilds didn't really get off the ground, I thought "well, why not just go play on the North American servers with them? And that turned into, "well if you are going to play on North American servers, why don't you just join CtR?".
So I started my Warlock Sproutofel to get to 55 (my main on Twisting Nether in the EU was a DK, and wanted to get back onto one of those) and joined the guild as soon as I could at 15. I haven't looked back since and play as much now as I ever have done, trying to get Sproutmalius all the achievements that my original DK's Frogmalius and Douchefrog had whilst getting up the guts to look for a new raid team. Its a work in progress, but I've enjoyed every minute being a part of this guild and look forward to Warlords, hitting 100 and downing more evil bosses with these great people in this guild
