I'll treat this as a serious question.
I know quite a few good players who were either higher end PvP players or PvE players, it isn't a question of ability at all. At that age the mind is like a sponge and if the right information is absorbed it's a given that a younger player can get good very fast if they put themselves up to it.
As to why? My guild chose this policy before my initiation into the guild so i can't really say why. I don't really disagree with it either though, I've been in enough raids where vent is filled with "my mom is kicking me off the pc" as well as enough younger players who have no respect for other people. I've also seen enough young raiders that are just simply unsure of what they want and flip-flop on whether they want to raid or simply just outright unreliable.
I ran a more casual raiding guild of my own and had no issue with recruiting a diverse age group, it's not that i am saying that i have an issue with younger players at all.
I would apply but im not 18. GL in mists!
Your familiar and have raided with a few players in Axis anyway I'm sure, if they thought you were a good fit you wouldn't likely have a problem getting in. Axis normally recruits from players we have raided with. Currently I'm recruiting outside of that and viewing logs AFTER they are recruited.
Off the top of my head it's rare that i have seen you troll on the forums (although i don't remember what you were like in trade before faction change) and a lot of your posts that i have seen can be rather intelligent on your class. If you troll often though or casually go around calling people baddies regularly then i don't think this guild would suit your tastes anyway.
Frankly a big part of why this guild is so gated towards younger players is due to... Well let me just quote myself.
If your a skilled and relaxed player who takes raiding serious but is also respectful towards other players inside and outside of the guild.
Honestly we have just always had some sort of issue with players under 18, either reliability, lack of courtesy to even tell the RL they couldn't show (or in the case they didn't get a chance to call at-least apologize afterwards) among other issues, as long as i have been here at least.
