Long time no see everyone, Hope you're holidays are going great.
It's been about a month since I was last on here, And I'm reading all these posts about people leaving because of disagreements, People being harassed (Grow the fuck up), and the possibility of the community coming to an end. Now i'm not sure of any specifics on anything that's going on, and I understand I'm not involved at all in the clan anymore so my two cents probably aren't even worth a shit. All i'm sure of is the I consider everyone i've met in this clan is a friend in my book, and some us go back quite a bit to be honest. I've known President, Puppy and balls and a few others since I was 18-19 and now i'm going on 25 years old next year, And it honestly sucks to see that it all might be ending on a shitty note from what i've read. So what's going on?
Hopefully I'm able to get a PC here soon but i'm super busy with everything right now and everything with me is great, But I still miss one of my favorite stress relievers and that is playing CS with my buds.
Like I said im curious as to what some of these issues are and if possible lets discuss them on here in a civil, calm and logical manner. From what it sound's like to me is some people are taking this "GAME" too seriously, WHICH in some aspects is fine. Just don't stress about it I don't understand that part. it's all supposed to be about fun.
Also in that respect I know myself to be an issue in the past, don't get me wrong. I know i'm the guy who would come in and play around too much and interfere with the game sometimes. From my honest stand point is I like to TRY to be a sense of "comic" relief. I like to have fun and try to make everyone else have fun also, I like to make people laugh. I like coming in and busting peoples chops and try to keep it fresh and down to earth. While sometimes malevolent to some it was never meant like that and even when it would sometimes get out of hand, I would try and make up for it and be fair to everyone. Respawn whoever I killed, etc. Like I said I consider ALL to be my friend, even those who probably can't stand my old ass, Which is totally understandable.
I just remember the fun I've personally had on the servers, And to me SG stands for fun and freedom (MERICA). We NEVER tried to take ourselves too seriously and bog down the servers with rules, Mute everyone all the time ETC. Now don't get me wrong we NEED rules and we NEED rule enforcement, But at the end of the day it's about people taking some time to de-stress and have a break from their shitty job and bitching girlfriends, to shoot off some virtual rounds at eachother.
One issue with me PERSONALLY is I remember the last time I came in to the server, and I would hear shit like "Obsidian can do whatever he wants, He runs the server." NO. Just because I am a veteran or whatever the fuck. One thing I absolutely dislike, and I don't think I am alone here, is favoritism for anybody regardless of their rank and whatever. I do NOT consider myself higher than anybody else in the servers and if I had it my way everyone would have the same exact admin bullshit. And if and when I come into the server and break rules or completely fuck shit up, I WANT you to report me, because it should be fair. If someone else would get banned or reported for doing some stupid shit then it should be the case for everybody, Myself included. All i am is some asshole who plays the game, I had NOTHING to do with server growth or the technical side, I can barely even burn a fuckin' CD haha.
Either way at the end of the day it's just about having fun, Everyone needs to remember that. People grow, things change, time moves on. Don't turn a fuckin' video game into a middle school girls bathroom.
POINTLESS RANT OVER, YA' CUNTS.
