My 4000th Post

Thu Jun 16, 2011 11:29 am

I have been thinking about this for a while. I realized I was close to 4000 posts and wanted to do something special for it. This is gonna be long, but I'm gonna try to mention everyone who I've had the pleasure of gaming with here.

My History

I joined this site back in March 2009 after LouieBlack's Average Joe interview. I had been running hogs in Matchmaking and thought I did a pretty good job of it, and jumped at the idea of a website devoted to hogging. However, because I was in school on a communal xbox at the time, I didn't have much time to get involved. It wasn't until about late April-early May that I first got involved. I requested hogging training, and Deaf Smith gave me my very first hogging lesson. Later, Smitty took me into Matchmaking alone, and we ran into H3WM il Duce's party. ::lol:: We lost, but it was my first experience playing against the Wheelmen. Later, I joined up with Duce's part and he told me I should come to New Member Fridays. It was at my first New Member Friday that I met hel monkey, my original gunner. We ran BTB alone for the longest time hogging it up. I have a lot of good memories of hogging with that kid.

Monkey and I would eventually join the O.G. Helljumpers, back when they were the brown group and devoted themselves purely to training. From here, I would meet many of the people I spent an enormous amount of time gaming with. I became heavily involved in the original tactical forums and ended up improving and creating many new strategies. After Crazyskate's departure, I ended up becoming the captain of the Helljumpers, and I also ended up becoming blue.

During the site split when some of the staff and blues left to form their own site, I joined them for a time. However, I came back home and worked to re-earn the trust of the community. Eventually, I, along with many of the Helljumpers, were allowed to apply for blue and have now become an official team for the community. Now, I'm a moderator on the site and do all kinds of things around here.

Thanks and Personal Notes

To help me keep my thoughts in order, I'll try to offer thanks in the order that I came to know groups of people or in appropriate categories. I'll do blurbs on groups or individuals.

My Gunners

hel monkey, you will be forever remembered as my favorite and best gunner. We learned how to hog effectively together, and we played hundreds of games in Matchmaking as just the two of us. My first gunner, my first rocket race partner, and my first real teammate. I miss ya, kid.

ONI Spook R111, you were definitely the loudest gunner I ever had. Your skill with the gauss turret was scary, and we were a solid duo no matter what we were doing. You were the most strategic gunner I ever had.

STON3 death, you and I got off to a very rough start when we first met, but I think you were the most intuitive gunner I had. Hogging with you was far more peaceful than any other time in my Halo career. We were a dominating hog duo when we were together, and I miss those good times.

HWM Twisted, there's honestly way too much for me to say about you. You were an excellent Banshee pilot in Halo 3. You became one of the best objective pilots I had the pleasure of gaming with. Long-time Helljumper and teammate, we went into Invasion together in October and ended up making HWM the best team in the playlist. Now, our community is recognized for it's strong Invasion team and knowledge of the playlist across the internet. We've had our spats, but it's been fun. Also, Unfrigginbelievable. Get.


My First Friends

HWM Deaf Smith, you were literally the first person I met from the site. You taught me how to run a hog, and so much more. You are still one of the smartest drivers I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with and you will always been seen as a mentor figure in my life.

DEAFIL, you're a funny guy and an insane gunner. You and Smitty taught me Halo awareness in a way that I would never have developed if I hadn't been playing with deaf guys.

Wheels36, YEAAAHHHHHH!!!!! No matter how hard I try, you will always be my shenanibuddy.


The Shoutbox Lurkers

Criporcmonsterp, you have been lolzy to talk to for over two years. You're one of my favorite people in the world.

Tha Dude63, NOU!!!!!!!!!!! You power lurked like none other. You were also a godly gunner and fun to mess with.

Turtle, you and I have some very unique lolz. I'm glad you're still with us.

Rob/TsengMao, yeah I know you're MT now, but I just wanted you to know that you're bad.


The O.G. Helljumpers (Brown Group)

Crazyskate6969, thank you for founding the group. You're a great guy. You were always fun to game with.

HWM A10 Pilot, you're awesome. You and I have had a lot of good and memorable conversations. I have missed you greatly during the time your xbox was broken.

HWM Azn, You and I have been gaming a long time, and I think you and I have played more games together than anyone else, totals around 2600 games between Halo 3 and Halo Reach. I always forget how young you are, but you're a cool guy.

HWM Luv Gunn, you have always been a great sounding board for me. You remain chill when I start to get worked up on things and usually provide me when perspective. Also, you're an invaluable asset in what we do now externally with Invasion.

HWM Cheeseball, you're just an all-around quality guy. I'm glad my roommate introduced me to you and got you to join the community.

HWM RHCP, ChiliDawg (Dawg), you've always been quiet in lobbies, but we've been friends for too long for me to not mention you. Sucks you hate Reach, but I hope to see you return with another Halo.

MinorMallets (pwnasaurs), you may annoy me from time to time, but I can't help but love you. I hope you stick around.

An Odd Armchair, you're my favorite lesbian ::lol:: (inside joke). I hope life's working out for you. You were also a damn fine gunner.

totomototo, I don't hate you ::lol:: You're also a funny kid to listen to, especially when you're with Mallets and Armchair.

Pengin SkullGod, many may not remember you, but I do. You worked hard to help out the early Helljumpers. You're a champ in my book and I hope the military is treating you well.

alistaro, I haven't seen you in a long time, but I can't forget you. You've always asked great question and been unquestioningly loyal.

EuroFox77, I have always enjoyed our conversations. You're an incredibly smart guy. You're also one of the funniest gamers I've played with. You and Criporc together make my favorite pair to hang out with.

Swift Strider, we met randomly in the shoutbox during the second Hog-Off. You've become one of my best gaming friends of all time. The week you spent here in New Orleans is one I will never forget. We will never lose contact.

Sraybest, you don't come around the boards much these days, but you've always been a committed Helljumper. I miss having you with us in the brown group days.


The Staff

I'll mention former staff as well.

brickfungus, words cannot express how much I appreciate all you do here despite the ups and down. Thank you just doesn't say enough. You're awesome, brick. Thanks again for staying with us through the years. <3 brick

Zer0, you're a great guy. You've always been a strong defender for the site and I have always felt the need to approach you about anything new I want to do around here.

ConsumedFever, you continue to be a big part of getting things done around here even with your own situations becoming hectic. You're also hilarious to game with. Less than three, sumed, less than three.

Duce, you got me into NMF and got me involved around here as a coordinator. I have enjoyed all of the lolz we've enjoyed in Matchmaking, and I hope everything works out for you.

Black Knight, we don't always agree, but you always offer useful feedback. Though we argue, I have always loved how our disagreements never cut into our friendship or relationship as clanmates. You do so much around here for the community. Keep it up.

DOMIN8, I love ya, Captain Headshot. You're just all around amazing. Not everyone sees what you do around here, but you're the Pineappling man.

Psyfireman, I haven't seen you in a great while, but you were always fun to game with, and you and Duce were great at getting new guys involved around here.

Laughlyn, I love you. You, by far, are one of the best people I've met from this community. No matter how angry or upset I am about something site-related or IRL, you always have a way of cooling my temper. Laffy, you're awesome. <3

Jedi, you and I talk for hours about nothing and everything. There's a lot I could say about you, but you, like Luv Gunn, are one of the best people I have to approach as sounding boards.

Haut, you're a great guy to talk to. I appreciate a lot of what you've done for me personally around here. Your acceptance was one of the most memorable things that's happened for me in my life, and I love you for it. Playstyles aside, I will always enjoy calling you a clanmate.

Barry, I didn't forget you. Thanks for helping me with a lot of little things over the years.

Louie, you're a hogging genius and thank you for helping found this great community.


The Wheelmen

RJ, we'd known of each other for a long time before we actually started gaming together, but I'm glad you're my most played with person in Reach (1012 games atm). You're a great teammate and one of the few people I can enjoy gaming with when we've got tons of randoms.

Josh, Jammy, and Mime, you guys always provide a lot of lolz to the lobbies that's very much appreciated. I always enjoy how chill and silly your lobbies can be.

Yozi, you're quiet, but you've done sooo much. Thanks for being an amazing teammate and for all the video/image work you've done.

Houdini, I wish we weren't 13 hours apart. You're always fun to game with, and your images are absolutely stunning.

Ivy, you're one of the coolest chicks ever. I'm glad I took the time to get to know you. You and brick are just incredible.

Kobe, I also hate the time difference between us. You're one of the funniest drivers I've ever met and it's always been fun hanging with you, too. You always step up when we ask you to do things, and it isn't forgotten.

Chuckaroo, you're the O.G. GP and you're awesome. I really hope you get a working gaming setup again. Always enjoyed gaming with you.

Valkyrion, you're an awesome guy. I'm glad you've been with us for so long. You're another with unquestioning loyalty that will always be a quality clanmate in my eyes.

Apathy, you've got a good heart. Don't be so hard on yourself. Also, don't disappear. You're fun to have around.

Cruckeyee, I am quite glad that we added you to the Wheelman. I always have a good time when I hop into a lobby with you.

Druceren, you're quite chill, and your growth as a player since you've started hanging with us has been amazing. You're a quality guy and am always glad to have you loling with us in lobbies.

Panda, I've enjoyed gaming with you for a long time. I'm really glad you joined our clan. <3

Jesster, you're a hilarious chick to hang with on Halo. You will be forever welcome in my lobbies.

ICEBIRD, you're a quality guy. Though we rarely have the opportunity to play with each other, I am also very proud to call you a clanmate.


All the Others

Dthen, I miss you. Hopefully you come back with a new Halo.

RubbrDuckE, you're one of the newest members to the community, but you're a hilarious kid and I love having you lurk the lolbox with us. Thank you for all the work you've done for us.

OboeCrazy, you're also one great sounding board for that gives me a lot of great questions for me to use for myself. Very glad to have you as a member of the community.

RabidHaloNinja, you're a cool kid, too. Hope to see you make a comeback this summer.

Fett2oo5, you're one of the best people I've ever met. You're an awesome guy, Fett, and you will be an amazing father.

Handsome Van, every game feels more epic with you in them. ::lol::



Not everyone was listed here, I'm sure, but I love all of you. Everyone here makes this place more awesome. Yes, some of you will comment that my 4,000th post was yet another "wall of text" ::lol:: but it's k. I ain't even mad.

<3 Everyone

It's fantastic that you had a reason to express your gratitude and joy. Nothing is better then telling the people that you care about that you care about them. Because then we all get a chance to say "ditto"
