  3. Back to the basics (Gaming)

    mmmm yes if there is one thing that makes something more fun, it's adding more stipulations to it. Godspeed good sir! If you wanna be with me Baby there's a price to pay I'm a genie in a bottle You gotta rub me the right way! If you wanna be with me I can make your wish come true You gotta make a big impression I gotta like what you do

    Sit right back and hear a tale...
  5. Its with a heavy heart...

    Good luck sir, we've had some good times! Hope to see you in BF1 #cannonshot
  6. Phoenix of ADK

    Most people I know here don't associate the Phoenix with ADK, but with what originally made the community rise above in the first place. Right now ADK is not the Phoenix, it doesn't deserve it. ADK is the diseased Egret, limping on the edge of the swamp, trying not to slip under. This is scarily close to that jingoistic attitude that helped cause the downfall. You don't hear from common members who just slink away (think about when something is dying....Do you remember logging into AOL Instant Messenger for the last time, knowing it was the last time you would do so? No, you just sort of stopped logging in at some point), you're only really seeing notes from mostly notable community members who loved this place and gave it their all for years, this place meant something special to them. In the end, they will still largely be mocked behind closed doors by management, as is tradition. You may not see it but it's there. "This guy donated countless hours of his free time to help the community... but then eventually decided to leave. Fuck him, right?". You are seen as a deserter if you left instead of someone trying to salvage their passion for gaming. And in the end, that's what it's about. When the love is gone for you, what is worth sticking around for? Is ADK dead? Hard to say. Can it come back? I believe it's possible but it's out of the common member's hand. You can beat your chest, slap on your MAKE ADK GREAT AGAIN bumper sticker, but until that fundamental change happens, that "Holy shit, something's fundamentally wrong" moment comes to the people running this community, ADK will sit on the precipice, muddied, sick, and wholly unaware it is about to be consumed.
  7. Well....bye.

    So I was going to write up a very different post, and put it in the Members Only Section, only to discover I am no longer a member. It has been stripped from me without my request. I was questioning if this was the place for me, but it’s clear that it’s not mine anymore. I know this will be scuttled off somewhere else or hidden, my mind’s already been made up for me so whatever. It’s hard to refresh words that have been spoken with great volume over the past few weeks, finding new ways to say it is tough. I really don’t know what to say other than, I’ve been here once before. I didn’t think it would come back to this so soon but I’m at the end of my run, there’s no sense in prolonging it. Most of you won’t care, and that’s fine. I have been here before but when it was my time to depart, I didn’t make a whisper as to “upset” anything, but now I see it really was for naught. For those who don’t know me, this was my home, the lifeblood of my free time since 2013. I hated it at times, but I was addicted to the schmucks that made up BF3 and would cement in as my homestead for the next several years. The people of ADK helped me get through a bought of severe depression. I was unemployed, in a new state with no friends, living out of my parents basement after calling it quits on my personal business and trying to make it on my own. I found a group of friends that didn’t give a shit what I did or didn’t do that day, they were just glad I was there and ready to have fun. Over time, I wanted to contribute more, and my friend @pepsi convinced me to put my media skills to use. I did what I knew best and wanted to start creating a strong presence for the community. Working with volunteers, and not undercutting anyone else, but actual labor had to go into the work that was done on graphics, videos, social media, etc., I was able to pull some favors and rope my unsuspecting friends into the work. And then everything changed. Within weeks, we were undercut, undermined, and flushed out. Feeling utterly dejected by a massive amount of bullshittery, we silently left the community, demoralized after spending half a year of sleepless nights between work and family to make our work something to be proud of. No Thank You when I left, no apology, no “we cool?” when I came back. I stuffed it down, because my friends were here. They were worth it….but the tone was very different. I keep seeing posts, “What have you done for ADK?”, jingoism is great in small doses. It’s incredibly short-sighted though, as it’s not the common member’s fault. Countless voices of concern have been raised, only to be squelched with “You’re not doing enough”. If they leave, they never did a single good thing in their life. I saw that when I left, and I’m seeing it now with others that have departed. Disgusting and disgraceful. “Your friends are jumping off a bridge so you want to join them?” The Bridge is on fire. I’m glad there is a small uprising of “we can fix this place”. I hope you do. I hope people have a place to gather, have FUN, and enjoy their free time. It is precious, and a terrible thing to waste. Maybe one day ADK will be what you make of it. Good luck, and thanks for the memories. I’d @mention people, but 95% of the people I want to mention won't see this or I’ve already said my piece so, a few special mentions: @Pepsi, brother, I do not regret a single thing. I’d gladly do everything I did to try and help because I know just how much your heart was in this place, and it broke mine when I found out what was happening. @daisy0706, thank you. For everything. You were always incredibly supportive, and remain so. I should be so lucky to have someone so reliable. All those early mornings of getting ADK Twitter stocked up with tweets, Fun Fact Fridays and the like. You took something you knew pretty much nothing about, and learned it inside and out to help the community. @FrogyIA, we never really spoke, since the Media Team disbanded… I understand now though, and I apologize for putting a friend in a tough place. I understand you wanted to help me and help the community, even if it was overwhelming to you, you gave it your best shot. Thank you for what you did, and thank you for the good times. @Snipe, @Dynasty, @ViperIt was always fun times in Battlefield. H1Z1 brought out the worst in people, but we’ll always have Battlefield. Good luck everyone else.
  8. Its So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

    Geesh, slim pickins on farewells :|
  9. Its So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

    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. (if you cant read, here: )
  10. The end of my time here

    Oh Colonel! my Colonel! *salutes* Add me on Discord bro, we still need to Battlefield it up
  11. Welp.

    Sonofabitch. I loved BF3 with you, BF4, hated your guts in H1Z1, and felt like good times ahead with BF1. You better still play wth us goddamnit.
  12. PC Games Magazine teasers

    This made me moist. Every now and then I just have these thoughts of "damn I reeeeally hope there's more going on behind the scenes than we have seen". Of course that's the case, but having immense things like this dropped on us is just so, so awesome.
  13. where you go sexy boi ?
