Title: Tester (Test account) - Almisael
Post by: Almisael on May 31, 2014, 01:19:26 am
Q1. What is your main character's in-game name?

Almisael

Q2. What is your real name?

Matthias H.

Q3. Where in the world are you located?

Germany, Düsseldorf

Q4. What time zone are you located in?

GMT + 1:00

Q5. How old are you?

27

Q6. Have you played Retail and if so, for how long?

Started playing when Beta hit - even the Korean one :D
Directly after i hit 60 i joined a Molten Core Raid and my WoW Journey begun. Soon i joined a Hardcore Raiding Guild called 'Acumen'
We killed everything till Sapphiron. We got only 2 days left befor TBC hit so we were not able to finish in retail but went back, when we hit level 70 and Sapph + KT were still Badass fights.
The experience gave me a lot of familiarity with Vanilla Content and especially Naxxramas.

Q8. How much time each day do you spend on WoW, on the forums or in-game?

3 to 5 hrs 4 to 5 days

Q10. Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a Leader of a team with 20 poeple doing Service Stuff. I love playing Games the Hardcore Way so i deciced to spend most of the time here besides work and gurls :P
playing Chess, Saxophone and Basketball for like 10 years each.

Q11. Explain why you think you would be a good Tester.

Back in those days we killed everything including Sapphiron and i have a huge amount of experience around Retail itself and i have played everything in wow pretty hardcore.

I have noticed many issues when comparing VG to to Blizzards Classic WoW and i have talked to Erga about them several times.

He asked me if i already made some bugreports.. i have not, since i dont want to do it the casual way and didn't take it that seriously at the beginning. Now since i have deciced to play here for a longer period of time and i'm personaly invensted in the quality of the server.

Q12. What interests you most about the Tester position?

Want to help this Server to become more blizzlike

Q13. What positive additions could you (or do you already) make to the server/Community?

i have not made many bugreports yet but more will be forthcoming soon. In the PvE Community i have contribuited to the Server by helping organize and lead 'De Profundis'.

Q14. We require all GM's to act professional at all times, this includes proper spelling and grammar.[We will not accept you if you have a lack of proper spelling and grammar]

I am confident that any bug report written by me will use proper spelling and grammar.

Q17. What do you think is the most important thing a Tester can do?

to help getting things even more blizz like and checking every resource he can find to prove things.

Q18. Do you know WHAT a Tester does? Please explain.

Gather informations, testing several things that got changed and if they are working properly.

Q20. What can you do to help the server grow?

most ppl coming back want to have that "FEELING" at Naxx / AQ so the more blizzlike the more attractive.

And DDOS Feenix :<

I could use some extra help testing Naxxramas and other bugs.  Right now there are a number of problems with the new live update and we need some more boots on the ground to document critical bugs and get some fixes to them pronto. 

Almi is one of our best tanks and his experience with blizzlike vanilla content is vast.  Let him do for VG what he has done for De Profundis!!!

This guy knows everything about retail. In the live update some things got "fixed" but, they are far from blizzlike so, sometimes I wonder where the Developers get thier proof and thier information.

This guy knows everything about retail.

I would like to have a proof of this with atleast 2 major bugs not listed yet in the forums. Cause I know way to many players here claiming they know retail stuff... and this one doesn't even know that Germany is GMT+1 and not +2 ... sooo?

I can assure that those fixes being made in the last LU are 99% Blizzlike with the regarding sources being handed to Erga. Please do not mix incorrect values with incorrect mechanics. In regards of the amount changes (and server behaviour) numbers are fine-tuning.

Making a mistake about GMT seems way more important then other stuff to you.

You will get two major Bugreports.

What other stuff that couldn't be posted by any 12year old? I just want a proof of knowledge especially from someone who uses a wellknown For the Horde gamer tag as alias here.

I can say without doubt having a player such as Almisael on the test server will be greatly beneficial for our server. He is an excellent raid leader (even better than Sarek *evil laugh*), a great player and has a vast amount of WoW hardcore raiding experience (specially in 1.12.1).

He knows the game mechanics, as we did it back in the day, and we are lucky to have such a player with that experience in <De Profundis>. I think he can provide stuff which is not yet reported due to his extensive raiding experience with new insight.

Title: Re: Tester (Test account) - Almisael
Post by: Almisael on July 06, 2014, 06:42:54 am
Acumen (EU-Anub'arak) Vanilla then joined "For the Horde" (EU-Destromath / EU-Nazjatar)

and we had 2 scarablords since alliance dont want to support us after a /roll that horde won ;>
first one was a warlock named Malygoss(Horde) and Doombringer(Alliance)


while looking into my screenshot folder i found them   ;D

All seems good other than the fact you have only actually made 2 bug reports in total previous to this. Why the sudden interest in improving the server?


Title: Re: Tester (Test account) - Almisael
Post by: Almisael on July 06, 2014, 05:26:44 pm
its hard to test stuff on your own especially when it comes to raids.
im playing here for 7 months now and not losing interest : )

my focus lies on raids and as i said befor its hard to test stuff when u are the only person in a raidinstance without having powers :o

Fair enough, would probably be a useful person.


Title: Re: Tester (Test account) - Almisael
Post by: Buexx on July 06, 2014, 06:05:44 pm
The comment in the Thaddius throw/pull topic proofs that he knows stuff. If we need a fourth tester give him an interview Erga. Although due to the current absence of "needs to be tested before release" content I do not see alot of missing manpower.


Title: Re: Tester (Test account) - Almisael
Post by: Sarek on July 06, 2014, 06:48:12 pm
The fact is, there are many things that cannot easily be tested with one person (thaddius, twin emperors), and I am rarely online at the same time as Erga or Buexx.  In summary, more testers would be a good thing, and Almisael or Royal or both as tester would be helpful.

I agree with sarek, he is doing a terrible job at testing and he should be replaced by this Almisal guy.

Lets get a tester who cares about content being bug free more than adding guards to org so he doesn't get ganked so hard.

fixing all bugs 'n stuff is nice and helps the server but people are joining VG to have vanilla experience

based on the fact that not a single AQ40 boss is working like it was in retail you should reconsider : )

Did he have his interview yet, Erga?  I agree with Buexx that he knows his stuff.  And we do need more testers, many things I can't test alone and need a partner, but rarely are the testers online at the same time.

just a small info.

as some of you might have noticed i stopped doing bugreports.

Simple reason behind that. Im into PVE content and there are 100 of bugs to fix (or what is not working like in retail) in MC, BWL, AQ40, Naxx and so on.

I'm not able to test anything at all on the normal Server.

And on top of that it's getting ridiculous. 7 Months for a simple Answer yes or no?

hey there,

i know almi for a couple of weeks now and i'm really impressed by his knowledge of the game in general. if something isn't working he is on it to find a way to fix pretty much everything. i'd really appreciate if such motivated people get tester account! especially when they really deserveit, like almi does.

so +1 obviously, also an answer would be kind of helpful after such a long time of waiting
