Its So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Sorry if text, grammar or anything like that is wrong but I do not want to reread this as it was hard enough to type it all. If you can not understand that then just go back to something else.

 

I am posting this in the general section because most of the people I would want seeing this are not ADK members anymore to see it in the members only section and I guess if you will consider this my post not only stepping down from the graphics department but my leaving as well. I have been thinking this over for about a week now and going through all the pro's and con's of doing so and with the light of recent events, recent comments and attitudes from ADK leadership along with inactivity I came to this decision. Yesterdat I went to my profile here and checks my topics I have made since I joined ADK beginning with the introduction post and continued through my designing days, BF3 days, Minecraft days and  BF4 days and could only wonder where it all went. All the activity, the fun times, missing friends, memories and just a lot actually. Below I am going to list some reasons why I am doing what I am doing and you can take it for what it is.

  • My friends have left, inactive or simply don't hang out anymore. These are people I used to game with on a daily basis. They are either not in ADK anymore, went MIA or simply doing other things. A community is not about a name or a logo. It is about your friends you game with, the memories you make and the time you spend with those people. They simply are not here and have moved on. Considering that I would say I have quite a few friends that I game with that speaks volumes to me.
  •  
  • BF1 beta was horrid in ADK. I was actually excited to do this beta and rekindle that old spark from the BF4 beta launch years ago. We had events, full channels of people playing together and great times. This time was completely different. I could not find any kind of event for it mentioned in ADK. Only like 6-10 people in Discord playing it and no admins playing along side you. Coupled with the fact I spent more time muting people then playing made me leave the ADK Discord to even play it. That old energy was not there, the missing hype, all of it really. I need to be somewhere where Battlefield is being hyped and going into full production. ADK is not doing this like it once was before.
  •  
  • The forums and activity are pretty much dead. I am speaking from a general population activity level of things. As I have said elsewhere now Discord is handling most of the convos taking place between people so website/forum activity is dropping fast. I was then told that times are changing and we need to evolve with them and if this is that evolution then being someone who works on the website and their drive for doing so it because the forums are active this is not the case anymore. I simply can not find the reason to sink time and effort into working on a site that just is not getting used like it once was. Designers work and code cause they want to make a better experience for the user, make them feel like they have something awesome to come to but now that thing is Discord so I can not see the reason for spending hours on hours making a site that admins are being forced to use by upper mgmt and only being filled by bot topics and forum games. Its simply defeating.
  •  
  • No graphic requests in over a month. There was a time when the graphic requests were like every other day with things needing to be made for all the different gaming sections, events, raffles, meetings, endorsements, comp teams and sponsors. This does not happen anymore and has not really since I came back from AFK in April-May. The closest thing would be that jersey Syl made for the CS:GO thing for hoodies and even that didn't happen and the design she worked on for 3 days staying up late to rush and finish never even got used for ADK even if the sponsors backed out. Seems like all I have been doing is making random t-shirts and wallpapers on my own accord with Syl. There used to be a undying need for these things all the time for graphic requests and it simply is not that way anymore.
  •  
  • Current staffing issues. While I do still have a many good friends on ADK staff there are some staff members I simply do not agree with nor do I have faith in their judgement, leadership and decision making. If they asked me to design something or code something up I would not have the drive to do it simply cause fuck them. Sad to say it that way but it is the truth. You have all these non-active admins on the site not doing anything except throwing around their position title and trying to step on people. They come in topics boasting their voice like I am supposed to cower to them or something along those lines and I wont. I go by respect, not your title and simple fact is that there are way to many admins in place I simply do not trust, respect or give a shit about.
  •  
  • I have been waiting for almost a week for a reply back from AOB in a PM. Nothing. I have most of upper management in that PM and no one has chimed in or said anything but Dowin and even that was not about what I said in the PM. This would be another reason is that for anyone to speak or feel like speaking it has to filter through AOB. No one is speaking up on their thoughts or views on the situation I have in that PM. AOB has been active in Discord tho but on Wednesday it will be a week waiting for a reply. I am tired of waiting. 
  •  
  • With the skills set I have, passion I have and raw leadership abilities I could pretty much go to any community and do what I am doing here. The thing that held me to ADK was the activity, friendships, gaming together and the constant flow of new ideas, concepts and pushing forward. As a graphic designer this is not happening anymore. As a web designer this is not happening anymore either. Nothing new is being suggested from admins or department admin requests for quite awhile now. There is no point in trying to keep thinking up things on your own to keep the gears turning when no one is giving you a hand in the process especially from the gaming sections, you know, the areas that make up what ADK is. 
  •  
  • Nova left so my chances of moving up working beside him are nuked now. I have been a VA/Director 5 times in ADK across 3 different departments. I have been coding and pushing out designs and such to the point my hidden graphics section has more topics and projects completed in it then most gaming sections here in ADK. I figured that without ever leaving ADK being swayed to go elsewhere, doing requests and projects without question and getting them done asap along with leading two gaming departments that are still active today that would warrant working beside Nova. No. It wasnt. And now Nova is gone. So for me first I was shot  in the chest when I was asked to go back into a VA/Director role then shot again in the head when Nova left. First my spirit was killed when I seen that I was just viewed as the same thing I have done before then my mind was blown when I seen the reason for even wanting a title to begin with was not even here anymore. 

 

Those are a few of them. I will not go into anymore because those are simply enough to warrant my exit honestly. Below I will be giving a few shouts to some people along with some thoughts and comments. Take from them what you will and if you wish to reply back to them I will reply to them when I have time. These people are in no order.

 

@AOBLXIX When I came to ADK the inner circle was me, you, Nova and Vinas. Nova is now married, graduated college and beginning his life with his new wife. Vinas is now with a child and married moving on into better stages in life and new outlooks on things he does. I myself have moved from Maryland to Kansas, living with Syl for almost a year now with a new job and began house hunting so we can start our lives together. I am not trying to shit on you but simply saying that you really need to move on from ADK and do what needs to be done for you, not AOB. Any girl you find online is going to gold dig the shit out of you with past events proving so. The ADK domain is worth $10K now and that would be a nice piece of change to actually do something for youself before it drops even further then where it was a year ago. Just being honest.

@Nova When I went AFK from ADK back in Aug of last year you were the only ADK person to keep contact with me on my cell asking what was going on, general concerns and so forth. Even tho people had access to get my number through you or other people still you were the only one to reach and to me that makes you blood like Nox is to me. I consider you a brother more then a friend and those texts mean more to me then the context of them. Sicilian pride.

@NoxNoctus You will always be my first brother online in anything. We have been through too much drama and too much fun to ever go back. At times I find your personality even better then my own and I love that. You are the only one I have never minded being my squad leader cause I know if its in defeat or victory there will be fun and laughs during the process. I will always be happy to call my friend but even more proud to call you a brother.

@Viper I have always called you my little bro. I have tried to be there for you and at times I have let you fall just to see how you pick yourself up. You have grown so much since we first met and I think you are on the right track to become a great leader one day when you decide to say fuck it and speak from your heart with passion knowing your friends are there to catch you even if you fall.

@Snipe Just like Viper I could offer the same words to you. Even tho I have never called you a little bro you have been to me even tho I dont say those words directly to you. I first met you as a lonely BF3 adviser doing grunt work and rough around the edges but now you have grown into a person people trust and listen to now and that should speak volumes to how people view you among your friends and such.

@ColColonCleaner Thank you for buying me expansions for Hearthstone. Your money was nice. I would say more but the fact of the conditions of your getting your job, the side talks we had on personal things make me simply want to nod to you so you nod back and we just know whats up. *tips hat*

@Homeboy Going from a young little kid to leading a group of over 6000+ members and now running your own little business is just awesome. I loved our little hits at each other during the PS2 vs BF4 days and sadly those days wont happen anymore. Fun times, fun memories and the only time you have ever let me down is not getting to second base at homecoming when I told you what to do to seal the deal. Meh, you decided to wrestle men instead. Nova is your brother figure so I shouldn't be so upset.

@Element We began as enemy's, turned into a alliance and now are friends. Kinda like a X-Men movie plot. Good guy, great working along side you. Wish we could have continued more since just within this year we began to talk to one another more and so forth.

@Phire My little recruit into ADK. So shy, bashful and hiding around the tree so people would not see you looking at them. Nice to see your grown now and finally turned into a bitch. Good stuff. Way to break out and take life by the balls. Just don't squeeze those balls too hard, I like seeing Colon around from time to time.

@Dynasty The faggot who grew into a man. Nothing else to say about it. You used to worry so much about trying to make people laugh, be the troll, stir up shit and now its finally good to see that you can do all those things with tact and style while working your job, taking care of real life and leading y example vs trying to follow along. You have grown leaps and bounds bro and for that you will always have my respect even if you can not build for shit in Minecraft. 

@Silent166 Our times in BF3/4 were amazing and killing camping noobs was always a blast. Early morning mayhem was always the best and great convos on TS as well. Can't wait to play along side you in BF1 sometime. You have me on Origin so hit me up time to time.

@War_Adm1ral Same thing I said to Silent. Another great friend I loved playing along side. Always there to make me laugh and being respected and informative at the same time. Much love bro. Always.

@Prophet You are a faggot. Simple as that. I hate working along side you. Our method are totally different. In gaming, in squads, off the clock, you are one the people I do actually enjoy playing with all the way back to BF3 Norshar days. The smoking in metro and you team swapping me was always hilarious. Good times bro, good times.... as long as we were not coding together.

@WhickerBasket Strange you and me. We have this "I hate you, I love you, no I fucking hate you, naw your alright" relationship. Fun stuff man, the good and the bad.

@ProtossMaster Fun seeing each other time to time in the TS and across the forums. Even those we never aligned in the same games really playing together working for you on graphics and talks in admin channels were always fun. Hope the best for you man in whatever you do. 

@Rabbit Fun times bro in BF4. Wish we got to game more but you still have me on messengers. Dont be a stranger in the future if you decide to get BF1. Cheers!

@EFr_000 Part of the Darkness Squad OG member. Always fun making you stay up until 4am when you have work in the morning.

@daisy0706 and @Zed1229 You both are so much fun, so many memories that I simply can not put it all here. Have to catch up with you two sometime and just hangout again and game. Going to miss you both. Get a hold of Nox, he knows how to find me.

@Dowin We spoke the other night on the phone. Sorry it came to this but the writing was on the wall. Don't get hurt trying to hold up the falling if it comes to that like we spoke of.

@CaGregorio Even tho we never spoke to much I still wish you the best. You seem like you are a great father IRL and for that alone I can respect.

@Bromance Another one like Nova who would reach out IRL and talk. Want to game with you one day again in BF1. Hope we can make that happen Bro. Hope life is treating you good in all you are doing.

@Spyderbyte88 Even tho we have never gamed together you are still one of the people I actually truly respect here in honesty and friendship just like @Marcinkoman except I have gamed with Marc. I hope you guys have fun in gaming and can avoid the drama and bs and just do what you need to do to enjoy your online time with friends. Thats what I will bbe doing now.

@Dwight K Shrute You are one of the admins I am leaving over. You gave me this long ass reply about IED's and your brothers and such and for you to pull that as a crutch on a online gaming forum speaks volumes of not only you but how you choose to respect those that have fallen besides you. You act as if you are the only one that has served, lost brothers and been in the shit. Semper Fi muthafucker and eat a bowl of dicks.

@Mikey Another admin of why I am leaving. When god made childish faggots he broke the mold with you. The fact you still have CS:GO admin on your profile as I type this makes me even more sure I am doing the right thing typing this out tonight.

@VinasSol I will always hate you for what you did with your opportunity as Comm Manager working along side Nova. I have moved past it being vocal but yeah, it's still there. Just keeping it real.

@BookD20 Another reason I am leaving. Hope you can replace what I was doing cause you are essentially the reason I even began this whole line of thinking. Later Gator.

Fuck it. Tired of typing now. If I missed anyone I am sorry. I mainly wanted to hit up the people I have spoken with since I came back to ADK from my break until the present time. Sorry I did not flame people and nuke the place to shit but in all honesty I am just bored now. No activity, no gaming, no friends hardly, just stale to me anymore. Im going to find a new community to game with or maybe just game with friends and such on the side. Who knows. But my time has come to a end. 

Side Note: 

I will need my access removed from the following...

  • ADK Admin Panel
  • My GFX FTP
  • My ADK.GRAPHICS FTP
  • Dowin change your Minecraft FTP password
  • Any ADK side project sites like H1Z1 clans and so forth
  • Server Spy Admin Panel access changed
  • I will remove the ADKGraphics Twitter and DeviantART page since they belong to me.

Its been a crazy time here in ADK and sadly it simply is not the way it was before. I wish you all the best but my time here is now done. I will be replying to this topic if need be but nothing more then that. I will be cleaning out my inbox so this is your warning on that one if you dont get a reply back to something. So as the the song says...

 

How do I say goodbye to what we had? 
The good times that made us laugh 
Outweigh the bad. 
I thought we'd get to see forever 
But forever's gone away 
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3eazHcbeQ0

 

 

Farewell. 

 

P.S. Zsadist is a muppet <3

I never thought it would come to this. After being away for a year I thought shit would be like the old days...it somehow got worse. You were the primary reason I stuck around as long as I did, you're the primary reason I came back, and....I don't know, but I don't think this is the place for me anymore either. Everything that could be said has been said, everything that could have been done has been cast aside, all that remains is no longer ours.

 

I'll just end with this:

 

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said:
"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert."
Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear —
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

@Pepsi  You are such a great guy , some people may say bad things on you , but with me you were a nice person that i do have all the respect for , when you left i was really sad , and was so happy to see you when you came back , and was great that i was one of the few people knew that you were visiting ADK before you officially came back . When i applied to become and Recruiter for BF never though i will have all that big support , maybe from a the admins that i set with them and players that i do play with them that time , but a support that came from a VA that time , that was something im really proud , thank you so much for it , it really was and still means to much for me .

This is what im talking about : 

 

6f170157a90c4f43b736c9bea0cc4b41.png

For some people its just a pic , but for me its something big , gave me tons of push to do my best to be example for ADK . I know some people have a lot of thoughts on me , but i swear , i am just a normal guy that love this place and everyone that respect ADK . 

If you allowed to me i would ask you one last favor and i really hope that you are ok with it , You are great designer you did a lot to us , can you create a shirt for me ? it would be something really amazing to have from you as a person . 

Your leaving is so sad for me cause we are going to lose someone amazing that did a lot to this place , but trying to convince you to stay is impossible so i will just be quite .

EDIT :

If you allowed to me to just to give my opinion on one thing in your post , its just my opinion my friend :

Quote

 When I came to ADK the inner circle was me, you, Nova and Vinas. Nova is now married, graduated college and beginning his life with his new wife. Vinas is now with a child and married moving on into better stages in life and new outlooks on things he does.

I am not trying to shit on you but simply saying that you really need to move on from ADK and do what needs to be done for you, not AOB. Any girl you find online is going to gold dig the shit out of you with past events proving so. The ADK domain is worth $10K now and that would be a nice piece of change to actually do something for yourself before it drops even further then where it was a year ago. Just being honest.  

This is not fair , ADK is belong to every single member That wear A DIFFERENT KIND tags , this family is not for sell , its because you cant sell the all the happy memories that tons of people have in this place , and i know that if it came to you , you won't do it as well , well i hope so . ADK is Priceless . I just had to say cause seeing what you typed in that quote was shocking and hard but as i said its just my opinion , and if that did happened it means that he was not deserved  to be a leader to this place to anyone thinking that way , i am not trying to be mean but i belong to ADK as a family not for a person . When you are wearing the ADK tags its truly means that you are A DIFFERENT KIND , and Pepsi , you truly are A Different Kind .

Now i'm in the last part of this post and which is the hardest part for me , its because i hate to type it and because it means Goodbye   :'( .

It was really 2 years i spend in ADK when i start to notice you in the forms and in TS , we did not talk to much but happy that you recognized me when i was joining a channel you are in . Thank you for everything , you kind words on me when you were talking to me , you maybe don't remember , but i do , how can i forget someone who was giving a complement every time i talk to , I really wish that you have a wonderful like and i really hope that one day i have the chance to meet you in RL , i hope so . 

Thank again for everything Pepsi . I truly love you .

Pepsi,

I haven't been around in this community long enough to understand the changes you are talking about, I've barely been here a few months. But what fun did we have all staying up late with the BF1 Beta, and enjoying ourselves. I hope that we can play some BF1 together at some point in the future.

Good Luck on your future endeavors!

@Pepsi Thanks for being a fun guy to always talk to. I enjoyed hanging out on teamspeak with ya. And thanks for having my completely true Battlefield Hardline review on the front page of the website. LOL.

Your wish has also been granted, topic was moved so non-members may see it :)

I think it's time I come clean on how I felt/feel about you in general. At first, I'm seeing you shit down everyone's throats on the forums & TS and I immediately developed a feeling of dislike of you (years ago). At the end of the day, you're an egomaniac and an asshole. You don't take shit from anyone, and I think that plays into many of the younger more impressionable guys gravitating towards you.

It took me a long time to realize that under that exterior you really mean well and you just detest bullshit. I came to respect that after playing a lot of BF4 with you. I'm happy I spent that time in those servers getting to know you better. You take care of your own, and nothing could impress me more.

I'm not going to miss you because we haven't lost touch.

I'll leave you with this gem:

When the shit went down with you in the media department over that whole situation with QQ and so forth like I told Nova I felt like my loyalty was being pulled in two different directions. One side was with you and the people that left with you in media and the other was the friends and work I still had here at ADK. When I seen that I had been replaced by QQ and dropped to just a reg member after everything and no contact over it that shook me quite a bit. When I seen you had come back to ADK I myself had some hope again but even that was  short lived due to people leaving yet again and then the screen caps I was seeing about things that have been going on behind the scenes I heard rumors of and so forth. Followed by the attitudes of staff during topics and situations just made the decision to finally dip out less of a loyalty thing and more of a rational thing. We have always remained in contact and like we have discussed, BF1, Darkness Squad and new hi-jinks to come.

Sorry to see you go. Had some great times playing BF4 with you. Take care, and thank you.

Yeah we did. All the way back to BF3 days indeed. I will still be around on Origin and what not and thanks for the thanks. Those are few and far between at times. Take care man and thanks for the reply.

I am used to people taking shit about me and never really cared who did. Those people will never be able to understand the work I did behind the scenes and how fast that work was done. Yes I may have been brash at times but that is because after being in and leading clans and communitys since about 2005 I have learned to cut through the bullshit and just do what needs to be done in either work or conversations. I despise debates and politics along with childish antics. When someone says they want to do a job in a community then does not do the job they signed up for they should be removed asap. This is one of the reasons I quit doing BF4 VA/Director cause I could not just kick lazy admins outright and run the department like it needed to be. 

This is what im talking about : 

 

6f170157a90c4f43b736c9bea0cc4b41.png

Yes I remember making that pic for you.

For some people its just a pic , but for me its something big , gave me tons of push to do my best to be example for ADK . I know some people have a lot of thoughts on me , but i swear , i am just a normal guy that love this place and everyone that respect ADK . 

If you allowed to me i would ask you one last favor and i really hope that you are ok with it , You are great designer you did a lot to us , can you create a shirt for me ? it would be something really amazing to have from you as a person . 

I dunno. Right now I am simply chilling out hanging with some friends in other Discords at the moment not really doing anything in Photoshop and such. If I do begin one day doing shirt designs on the side or something I will find a way to let you know outside of ADK.

Your leaving is so sad for me cause we are going to lose someone amazing that did a lot to this place , but trying to convince you to stay is impossible so i will just be quite .

Yes, I made my mind up after about a week of waiting and debating over things. As I said above, you learn a lot when you have a group of people discussing things they know just putting all the pieces in place. So with the vocal of those people and the silence from others the decision was pretty much made for me.

EDIT :

If you allowed to me to just to give my opinion on one thing in your post , its just my opinion my friend :

This is not fair , ADK is belong to every single member That wear A DIFFERENT KIND tags , this family is not for sell , its because you cant sell the all the happy memories that tons of people have in this place , and i know that if it came to you , you won't do it as well , well i hope so . ADK is Priceless . I just had to say cause seeing what you typed in that quote was shocking and hard but as i said its just my opinion , and if that did happened it means that he was not deserved  to be a leader to this place to anyone thinking that way , i am not trying to be mean but i belong to ADK as a family not for a person . When you are wearing the ADK tags its truly means that you are A DIFFERENT KIND , and Pepsi , you truly are A Different Kind .

I used to think this way as well but something you will learn in time is that the community is just a home, the people who live in that house is what makes it great. When your closest family members leave, expelled or treated bad you have a hard time being in that house anymore. I am not going to use this topic as a way to talk about the things I have been shown these past weeks nor go into detail. I am simply tired of all that and want to game with friends and have some laughs. Me doing that in or out of ADK makes no difference as long as I am doing it. I came to ADK from another community that split over 3 years ago with a group of friends and over time they left ADK for various reasons but ended up making new friends. Now the cycle is repeating again and if I join a new community or whatever my main goal is to be the people I gamed with during BF3/4 for the past years to which I can be it in a ADK server or not.

Now i'm in the last part of this post and which is the hardest part for me , its because i hate to type it and because it means Goodbye   :'( .

It was really 2 years i spend in ADK when i start to notice you in the forms and in TS , we did not talk to much but happy that you recognized me when i was joining a channel you are in . Thank you for everything , you kind words on me when you were talking to me , you maybe don't remember , but i do , how can i forget someone who was giving a complement every time i talk to , I really wish that you have a wonderful like and i really hope that one day i have the chance to meet you in RL , i hope so . 

Thank again for everything Pepsi . I truly love you .

That end part means a lot. I would almost expect the same kind of response from others I worked closer with but it does not mean I do not respect your words and feelings none the less. Just keep on being you Laith and try not to let your passion cloud your judgement in things.

Drop by anytime man! I love the roasting you do, its a good read. Even though you roasted my ass that one time. I laughed, then raged, then laughed again. Lesson learned.

All we have online is our personality and our voice. Some people try to boss others around and rule them with power and titles which in the end have no lasting effect. You want people to listen to you and trust you? They need to respect you. FPS gaming is a alpha dominated atmosphere and you have to convey that to keep people in line and get this moving forward. I did a lot of that even tho I stepped on a shit ton of toes in the process but in the end if the job got done, done in time, and it moved things forward I didn't care who hated me. Funny thing is 90% of the people I pissed off when I first met them I am actually good friends with them like Nova and Whicker for example who I went toe to toe numerous of times. Including you. <3

Pepsi,

I haven't been around in this community long enough to understand the changes you are talking about, I've barely been here a few months. But what fun did we have all staying up late with the BF1 Beta, and enjoying ourselves. I hope that we can play some BF1 together at some point in the future.

Good Luck on your future endeavors!

@Pepsi Thanks for being a fun guy to always talk to. I enjoyed hanging out on teamspeak with ya. And thanks for having my completely true Battlefield Hardline review on the front page of the website. LOL.

Your wish has also been granted, topic was moved so non-members may see it :) 

Thank you for bringing the topic back from the members section. Yes, I remember us playing a shit lot through the night. Good times man, great times actually. If you are picking up BF1 I will see you there in it next month.

I think it's time I come clean on how I felt/feel about you in general. At first, I'm seeing you shit down everyone's throats on the forums & TS and I immediately developed a feeling of dislike of you (years ago). At the end of the day, you're an egomaniac and an asshole. You don't take shit from anyone, and I think that plays into many of the younger more impressionable guys gravitating towards you.

It took me a long time to realize that under that exterior you really mean well and you just detest bullshit. I came to respect that after playing a lot of BF4 with you. I'm happy I spent that time in those servers getting to know you better. You take care of your own, and nothing could impress me more.

I'm not going to miss you because we haven't lost touch.

I'll leave you with this gem:

 

Now for a real reply. 

I remember my first interaction with you on a grand scale was over me becoming the BF4 VA when you decided to step down from admin over it. I literally could have gave two shits if you did or did not. Not even me and Nova were that tight at the time so I only knew you as Nova's friend and so forth. After leaving that and beginning to bond with Nova more I began to have more interaction with you. I was on the fence over you still but because you and Nova were tight I was like whatever. Then one random day we played BF4 together and in TS together. I dont even think we were in the ADK TS cause DDoS at the time. But being away from ADK, the TS, the admin stuff and just playing with you in a sterile atmosphere was showing me you in a different light. After we got done playing that night I still remember thinking how much I missed out gaming with you with all the things Me and Nox and all the others did together you would have loved to be apart of and I tried to fix that by playing with you more, talking more and moving past all the bullshit in the past and judging you for you, not some title, forum post or rumors and hearsay.

One of the things that make me have so much respect for you today is you commitment, value and honor you have for those you call friends and the lengths you go for them in their time of need. I can relate to that fully. This kind of goes along with what I was saying to Laith above.. I learned all this about you outside of ADK that day and dont know if I ever would have if the situation was different but those times playing BF4 were to short and far between. You have a way of making me laugh that is very genuine and its hard for me to find people that can influence me in that way.

Your a great dude Whicker and your bonds I see you have with people remind me of the ones I have with people as well. You say I impress you but in fact you impress me as well. I just dont say it cause you know, fuck Pepsi, hes a faggot ego asshole <3
