What do you want me to do? Try to create more drama for the community (or lack of community) to mull upon?
@Cyanerd – I am not denying the fact that I posted screen shots of my Paypal. I am not denying the fact that I told Reedwise to “stay small”. But did you actually not read any of the posts he made? I am also a human being, a non-perfect individual, and all of the trolling (which I am highly unaccustomed to) got to me. If someone attacks me, my personal life style, calls me out for working at “Taco Bell”, and a lot more, is he entitled to doing that JUST because he does not have the blue “NAO Organizer” tag next to his name?
I play this game and enjoy this game as much as anyone else on this website. I am not different from anyone else, and got carried away in the heat of the moment, making myself look like an asshole.
Now let us get some facts straight:
1) I do NOT own arenarating.com. Public domain ownership is quite easy to figure out, and a few google searches will help you find out who owns the domain. I believe that Arena Rating is registered as an actual company too – since it is an LLC, all of the ownership information is public domain, and it would be quite easy to figure out who the actual owner is.
2) Have I in the past done carries for ArenaRating? Yes. I am not denying that. From what I understand, and have seen though, a heavy percentage of ArenaJunkies’ high end users have done similar things. Might as well just flush the whole community, and not just make me some kind of underworld super drug overlord, as it seems like everyone is.
3) I have actually not logged on another person’s account for about 3-4 months now, nor have I broken Blizzard’s ToS in any way, shape or form in that period, and have no intentions to ever again.
Anyways, I would like to apologize to the whole community for the posts that I made, it fits of anger. Obviously, someone struck my nerves, and it got to the best of me. I made posts that put me and NAO, and associatively ArenaJunkies and Curse in a bad spot, considering the posts were over glorified, and me just trying to troll Reedwise back.
My involvement in NAO, was purely and solely for the purpose of actually doing something good for the community. I have put in countless numbers of hours (and so have the other NAO staff), to make this happen.
That being said, just because of the shit that has been flung around, and people trying to tarnish the good intentions of NAO, AJ, and Curse, I am stepping out of NAO and will not be involved in any future endeavors that they go forward with.
I wish them good luck, and I hope that everyone will be able to get over themselves, and all these posts that are being made, and actually realize that we are effectively killing an already dying community of WoW buy constantly creating such threads.
Thanks, and sorry once again. Hopefully Reedwise, and everyone else that supports him, can respect NAO more for what it actually is, rather than putting all of their attention to baseless accusations and false facts.
Takes a true man to admit your temporary failure like this, respect, looking forward for NAO. =)
The only part of AJ I dislike these days is the consistent spam you and your little group of friends have been posting over the last couple days trying to ruin NAO's name by spreading lies. It is seriously the same 5-6 trolls starting and agreeing with these threads.
When have you ever acted superior? You just called me, and a couple of guys I don't know and have never heard of a, "little group of friends." Not only do you manage to sound completely arrogant and condescending, but you also manage to completely miss your mark and make completely baseless accusations.
That is extremely unprofessional, and no one that moderates a website that is meant to be public should be able to act like that. You are being paranoid and assuming the problem exists where it doesn't; did it ever occur to you that the problem was actually the fact that you're championing an organization designed to, "reignite the game" while many people who are high ranking in the organization are also responsible for destroying the same?
I do not know Xul, the guy who made this thread, Ctuhlu or anyone else outside a few of my arena teammates but I whole-heartedly agree with them and Reedwise and everyone else who said the NAO tournament was a corrupt grab for cash run by immature children.
Why should you get to talk down to us?
And before you say you didn't you literally said, "How have we ever acted superior? .... the only part of AJ I dislike.... is the consistent spam you and your little group of friends have been posting... spreading lies."
Mugems owns ArenaRating. Mugems has a big stock ownership in NAO. You are talking down to the general AJ populace in the very post where you say you never do.
Which of those statements are lies?
Lastly, the logic isn't midevil. They gave a guy special privileges to moderate this website and the guy goes around posting with said special privileges bragging about doing carries and owning an arena carry website. That strikes me as very wrong on an official fansite.
The fact that Xul's post still hasn't been deleted (he calls cyanerd fucking retarded with bolded letters - while cyanerd discuss in a mannered, albeit, with "conspiracy/blame" content) - underlines the selective deleting/banning mods are doing now days on AJ. This makes Xul seem protected purely because he takes a stand with the AJ mods, which again leads me to the selective moderating taking place.
I had a post deleted because I called an individual a "hypocritic moron" - where I understand that I broke the rules by insulting someone with course language.
Why isn't the same treatment being held up against Xul?
(this is not at all personal towards you Xul, i'm simply using you as an example because thats what happening in this thread.)
The proof is right there; Mugems clearly owns ArenaRating.com and he is clearly still an, "NAO Organizer" on this website. Moreover, Reedwise was permanently banned for, "admitting to ban evading" even though the legitimacy of his original ban was never answered to, even though numerous people including Reedwise have brought it up to Rapture, and other moderators. His original ban was literally for posting chat logs of Talbadar raging after a loss. Truly, Reedwise casted an unforgivable curse and his ban evading was totally not warranted.
What's more, a quick perusal of Mugems recent threads shows him bragging about, "farming up sells."

- It isn't hard to find if the moderators weren't so biased in their duties. That's literally like one of his most recent posts. It is against the rules and the only possible explanation is: the owners of this website are in bed with NAO and the rules are completely nonsensical and only seek to further the agenda of the players pillaging this community because they are pillaging it as well.
Bottom line is: lots of US mods know the following: that Mugems is largely in charge of NAO, that AJ is partnered with NAO, and that Mugems owns ArenaRating.com and the worst part is that nothing is being done about it. That is against your own rules, so banning Reedwise was obviously a political powerplay so the people destroying the community they claim to serve can continue to make profit.
Sad day for AJ, what's funny is moderators say the website's goal is to help new players get better, when their actions could only mean the website is meant to help new players get better ratings by paying for them and letting someone else, preferably Mugems and and his NAO crew, play their accts.
