    I guess I was too hardcore for Blizzard, they didn't respond to both of my applications :(

    If I ever decide to try again I'll say I'm a casual nub who cleared Karazhan just before Wrath got released.

    Thats what I'm hoping.... but there are some really, REALLY nerdy, socially awkward and socially inept WoW gamers out there.
