Are you familiar with SCP:SL? If so, describe it!:
SCP: Secret Laboratory is a free-to-play multiplayer reincarnation of the game, SCP: Containment Breach.The game revamps everything from the old game, while adding in new mechanics and features. To summarise, there are 6 teams, Class-D, Scientists, MTF, Facility Guard, CI and SCPs.
The Class-Ds are the main team most players spawn in at the start of each round. They start with no items and must find the scientists or a keycard, which are scattered through the LCZ. When a CD escapes, they become a CI member.
The Scientists are a small team of around 2-4 players per round that spawn with a keycard, making it easier to escape. When they escape, they become a MTF Scientist.
The MTF squads are teams of players which spawn mid-game to kill SCPs, CI and Class-D. They respawn every 5-7 minutes, though there is a chance a team of CI may spawn.
The Chaos Insurgency is like an MTF squad, but with an OP LMG to balance out of the field of the game.
We then have Facility Guards. They spawn at the beginning of a round in groups of 1-4. They have minimal gear but enough to get them into the LCZ to upgrade their stuff. Their job is to terminate CDs, but remain away from SCPs.
Finally we have the SCPs. This is a group of players who can spawn as either: SCP-173, 049, 096, 939 (2 Instances) and SCP-106. They are formidable and are a tough enemy, with lots of heath and each have their own pros and cons.
The round ends with a team wins, such as MTF win, SCP win or a stalemate. There are also map events such as the Alpha Warhead, which, when detonated, limits access to the surface. This is an end-game event.
(Yes this is over 125 words but you really cannot summarise in that little word space)
Do you have any previous staff experience?:
No. However I do want to start my online staffing experience here. I believe I could learn a lot from Hydra's amazing staff, who are always friendly and very supportive. I have talked with a few mods, one of which said they may +rep me, though I won't say that as a shining point, it was a nice compliment though. Actually, change of answer, sort of. I have moderated for some smaller discord servers which don't see much activity, thus I said 'no', though I believe I should say it anyway.
Do you have any IRL leadership experience?:
I do! At the school I go to currently, I have managed to get myself onto its Student Leadership Team, and I was a Student Ambassador. These roles both require leadership skills and I believe I did pretty well in those roles. Although I'm not old enough for a job, I'm already practicing in leadership through these school jobs. I pride myself on getting such positions, as I enjoy it. I hope joining the staff team could help me improve my skills in this area.
What makes you better than other applicants?:
What makes me better is that I enjoy this sort of work, moderation and support of a game. I enjoy helping and solving problems between people, and rectifying an issue. It makes me feel like I've accomplished something, and I hope you would understand that. I also am very friendly and have played a good amount of Secret Laboratory, of just over 50 hours. I want to help this community by contributing to its server upkeep and playability.
How will you help improve our community?:
I can help by being on the Secret Laboratory servers when others are not. I don't know how many GMT moderators you have but I'm guessing not many, as for most of the time I am on Secret Lab, even with a full server, there isn't a moderator online, likely due to time zone issues. My improvement is being a player and staff member who actively will stay on server for hours on end, as I love playing Secret Lab and want to actively contribute to it.
How did you find our community?:
Amazing. All the staff and people I have talked too in my short time here are very friendly and supportive. One mod helped me with this application process, such as where to find it, which is on this forum. I have a sincere gratitude to him for helping me through my time here, and I hope I can interact with more by becoming part of the staff here.
I enjoy the moments on the SL server when some admins or mods make the game more fun, like one time when a mod teamed some players to SCPs who left the game right at the start of the round.
You have an amazing community, Hydra gaming, I hope to become part of it more than ever.
Although I am young and have no previous staffing experience, I would enjoy the experience being a staff member here, and would learn a lot from it. If I did get an interview, I would do as best as I could. I also put as much effort as possible into this application, and I hope it does well. Thank you. (NOTE: This is my second application, and I have refined it from my old application, so if things look similar, that is why.)
