I've been into this game since the first initial premium release. I'm usually playing alone, but I think I need to gather up some more players that are willing to be a little semi-hardcore.
I'm NA but EU is fine.
I'd love to get into a fashion where I can help you with your contracts, while you do the same, then move on to Strongholds or whatever else gets us geared the quickest!
You can add me on Origin @bradecker
I'll mainly be playing everyday from about 5:30PM Cst - 11:30PM Cst.
