Cosmic: So tell me a little about yourself
Nitroboost: Well my name is Adam. I’m currently 24 and in the air force. I’m playing some black ops 2 and of course WoW. I’m a level 90 human pally tank spec [human (race) pally (paladin) tank (role. roles are either tank, healer, or damager), and spec is the specialization].
Cosmic: Are you horde or ally?
Nitroboost: I used to be horde but I faction changed to alliance.
Cosmic: Sweet. Have you played any MMOs before or is wow your first one?
Nitroboost: I started play wow back in wrath and played a little bit of tera but not much. I don’t usually play console games except some fps [first person shooter] like the cod [Call of Duty] series.
Cosmic: How much time do you play games per week?
Nitroboost: Uhh maybe about 12 to 16 hours a week.
Cosmic: Are you in a guild?
Nitroboost: Yeah I’m the gm of the raiding guild Fuel
Cosmic: How long have you been a member?
Nitroboost: I’m actually the guild leader. The guild has been around for a few years but hasn’t been active. I started it up again when mop [Mist of Pandaria, the most current WoW expansion] launched.
Cosmic: How long have you been a gm [guildmaster]?
Nitroboost: Two years on and off. I took a little break during cata [Cataclsym. the expansion before Mists of Pandaria] because it wasn’t very interesting but then my friends and I all came back when mop released.
Cosmic: What makes a good guild leader?
Nitroboost: Definitely someone who knows their shit and can take command of situations. Always a lot of fighting and stuff going on for loot.
Cosmic: What’s the difference between normal members and you?
Nitroboost: Normal members have less responsibility and some are just social members.
Cosmic: What kind of responsibilities?
Nitroboost: They don’t have to raid lead or help out with enchants and gold and stuff
Cosmic: Do you have any officers or co-guild leaders?
Nitroboost: Yeah a few of my buddies from the airforce help with the guild it helps out a lot because I can’t always be on.
Cosmic: Is this your first guild or have you been in previous guilds?
Nitroboost: This is my first time leading a guild. I’ve joined other ones before but usually just to be social or help out with questing.
Cosmic: Did you have any important roles in the guild?
Nitroboost: Not really I was just a casual. I would help out sometimes but not tons.
Cosmic: Would you say being a guild leader is a lot harder than it looks?
Nitroboost: Well definitely. A lot more work goes into it than what people see. Sometimes you just get the shitty end of the stick in situations.
Cosmic: Have you ever had a member defy the rules of your guild or is there some type of punishment for players who don’t behave properly?
Nitroboost: They usually get a warning but if it’s severe enough I kick them.
