Hello, dear Infinitians!

the main priority of being a GM is to communicate the players needs to the rest of the staff, and to improve the overall experience of the game.
We game masters, provide support for players concern and game related inquiries. We handle reports and give punishments to those who violate the game rules. We conduct regular bug investigation, exploits & hack testing and game item assessment (uber set and weapons imbalancement) and provide better solutions to ensure player satisfaction and quality gaming. We plan, create and innovate game rules and procedures to keep the community clean from cheaters. The game masters evaluate critics, feedbacks and suggestions from the player community for better game improvements. And we plan and assist game events to give fun for the community.


As a new recruit you will start a Test Trail in Test Game Master position, and if you pass the 31 days of trial period you’ll be promoted to full Game Master.


What we expect from you:

  • Communications skills: Since English is the main language known by almost all Infinitians, knowing how to talk/read/write in English on at least Intermediate level it’s a must. Advanced English is a plus.
  • Team player: Improving and creating ideas, discussing situations/reports is a team’s job.
  • Proactive: in finding solutions, ideas and in helping others.
  • Fair play. Know when to make a difference between your job as a GM and a friend who’s been breaking rules.
  • Good knowledge of the game (InfinityMU) and its custom features.
  • Hosting a minimum of 2 events a week.


What do you get in return:

  • Friendly team that will help and guide you.
  • A chance to gain experience as a staff member while working side by side with experienced members that will help you with everything you might need.
  • A chance to build and develop your reputation in the server.
  • A chance to shape our community and server for the better. we are here to improve the overall experience of the game.
  • Access to all the potential future updates (also one's in progress ), and help develop them.
  • A chance to join the senior team in the future after showing commitment, confidence and your learned knowledge for long period of time.
  • And lets not forget: Huge opportunity to work in one of biggest and oldest MU online server.


Gripes
Here are some things which will lower your chances at success.
Read them, and memorize them well. This list will slowly dissect mentioned issues, take your time to read them.

  • I've been a GM on other servers: A common reason, or rather "qualification". Please do note the inverted commas. Nobody cares for the experience in those servers. Here, this is a different community, a different server. Commands, NPCs, players' needs and wants. They're all different. So please do not use your experience in other servers to justify yourself. Besides, if you have obtained GM status there, why are you applying for the job here? It just shows your lack of devotion, a definite negative for you.

  • I can help players by answering their queries: Everyone else can do that. Have you seen players aid each other through megaphones? You don't have to be a GM to help others. So please do the necessary.

  • Post count: This is a relatively tricky one. Although a low post count does not necessarily mean inactivity, a single digit post count should show your lack of activeness. You could have been one of the most active players in-game but your lack of awareness about the forums will dampen your chances. The fact is that most updates are posted here, so I'll advice you to go get yourself some posts and establish yourself before posting the application. Of course, you do so without spam.


Prohibitions
These are stuff you must avoid. Don't bother coming here again, if you ignore this. You'll only ruin whatever repute you already have.

  • Post an application that is your 1st - 5th post.
  • Insult or ridicule.
  • Worthless self-promotion via bashing.
  • Poor grammar.
  • Arrogance + Poor personality.
  • Make empty promises.
  • Copy and paste an application from another server.


FAQ
Q: Do I get paid?
A: You get paid on a monthly basis with Uber Items depanding on your activity in each month.

Q: What kind of powers do I get?
A: Forums: moderator powers.
Discord: GM status with ability to warn / kick / ban / few moderation powers.
In-game: ban, DC, skins/invisible, godmode, teleport, trace, global messages, event rewards.


Format
Please follow the format. You may add any additional information at the end of your application.
Discord is a required form of communication for any staff member.


  • Name & IGN: real name + main character
  • Ban History:
  • Guild: (if any)
  • Age:
  • Gender:
  • Country + Timezone: the country you live in and its timezone.
  • Discord ID:
  • Languages: mention your level of fluency for each.
  • Experience on InfinityMU:
  • Availability during a regular week: think of your work / school schedule, only add certain availability.
  • What are your biggest weaknesses?
  • What are your biggest strengths?
  • Why should we hire you?

Keep in mind that if we sense there is a lack of effort put into your application, your chances of approval significantly decrease. Do not post previous experience in the format.
So in short, quality over quantity. Bear that in mind.

Thank you.
