  1. You left with me. Did I ever ask you to leave? Nope. You left because you wanted to. Same for every clan today that decided that we will NOT subject our clans to the new ways of UF. This has nothing to do with 'taking' from UF. UF lost these clans on their own accord, with nothing to do with me. I made a decision based on what was best for VR Hush, and as a fellow clan leader I hope you would do the same for yours if you were put in a similar situation.
  2. Ive thought all weekend what I would say in this post. How do I summarize all the good times, all the bad, and my intentions for the future? It seems like just yesterday I was introduced to this concept in online gaming...a cheat free environment where the rules were followed and relished instead of manipulated and scorned. I have some of my best gaming experiences here at Urgent Fury. I remember the first Ronin tourney where Maverick and I had a 1.5 hour campfest on MW. My heart pounded, my palms were sweaty...whomever won would go to the semi's, and we both wanted it ferociously. I remember the first Horseman tourney and how intense they were...they made Socom Confrontation bearable. If that isn't a glowing review then I don't know what is. Then I remember the change of hands and the promise of a bright new future. I remember drinking the koolaid and helping out. I remember failed tournaments and just misses...I remember alot of events that transpired I wish wouldn't have happened. It occurred to me recently that things were on a collision course with failure, and I ceased to want to be apart of it. These thoughts came before the bungle occurred with In Country and before the removal of my staff position, and even before Shane felt it necessary to peruse my PM's to ensure I wasn't causing a second Revolution. They came before each VR member was removed from the Rangers. They came when I saw the divide between the three Directors and how desperate two were to remove the one from power. They came when I realized that the goals of the Directors for the future of UF was not congruent with the motto of Urgent Fury. The luring of major sponsors to UF only meant that UF would be forced to do things the way the sponsors saw fit. Sure during initial talks everything would be 'oh thats a great concept' and 'this fits what were looking for' but when the actual go time comes it would be 'We need more participants' and 'open up to expansion'. I realized then...I don't WANT expansion. If I wanted that I would be playing in a larger arena. If adding random clans to tournaments was something I desired, I would be at GB or another anyone can join tourney site. Its the fact that UF was exclusive that always drew me back. I want to get online and know my opponents. Maybe I'm just too old for this anymore, but thats what I loved about UF. Tow can come in and say something poetic that smacks of old school Tow, but he is the smart one. He sold when the time was right and when stock was at its highest. The writing was on the wall, and I say bravo Jay. Now you couldn't get a box of cracker jacks and a #2 pencil for this place. While all thats being said, his clan *****es about UF on their forums, as we all do. Hell, I've heard from Staffers HERE that Shane is on damage control and is spreading rumors that I have done all this on purpose and have planned to create a tournament site for 6 months now. See Shane, difference between me and you is that I don't NEED to spread rumors. I have your actions and fact well on my side. What I do is my business, and I won't bother with the details here. I respect the old school enough to not break your rules. I won't talk about what was in Staff section not because of a non-disclosure agreement that would never stand up in court (notice I signed it 'Tool_Minion'?) but because it was never necessary to begin with. I respect the efforts of Staff. I understand why some things need to remain behind closed doors. Violent Revolution officially withdraws from future Urgent Fury tournaments. Some of you will be missed, others I hope to never cross paths with again. In the end, I hope the Urgent Fury directors take a deep look at what they bought and what they've done to it. I can't understand whats so hard about remembering it's simply a video game, and that we are SUPPOSED TO BE HAVING FUN. VR will get that back. I promise. [-VR-] Tool_Minion
  3. And you sir are correct on both counts.
  4. Thats true Daniel. One is not the same, but they were tied together by the Directors. They removed all VR members from the Rangers and Judge positions....so while I completely agree with your assessment and how comments like that do not help, I respectfully disagree that the Rangers weren't involved.
  5. I had one of the best weekends ever in Buckhead. Spent every night at the strip clubs and when my buddies aunt (she was 26 and a premier stripper at the gold rush? I cant remember the name of the place) got off work we went to Buckhead and hit up all the VIP rooms. Never left the club before 7AM....lol
  6. Im not quite that far into it yet. I would like to try them out for work tho....
  7. OK, I peed when I watched that. The ending was the best IMO.
  8. Its only because your so old, you typed that message on an Apple-1.
  9. Nope, been married 33 years, and although she IS an alcoholic, she hasn't had a drink in 20. At least come correct kitty cat!
  10. Whatever you do, do NOT let Mikejaxon near your sig template. He's horrible.
  11. I think everyone's just a tad tense these days. CB, you know better. If you don't talk to yer Uncle, he will help you. It is frowned upon to put apps in at multiple places as well as not confirming your plans to discontinue your tryout within the community. Once you have some people do it to you, you will understand better.
  12. Multi designed my non-animated sig templates, and Whitesky did this my current animated sig template. He does NOT charge nearly enough for the time he puts into these...just pinning him down with his current workload can be difficult.
  13. Tapatalk is a free mod to install, it only costs the end user to purchase for use. Idk if you have to be on vb4, but it is a different dl for earlier versions. Tapatalk + EVO = BI-WINNING
