This breaks my heart just a little bit. Even though I haven't played WoW in a long time, I'll never forgot my time spent working on this site. Thanks to everyone who turned it into a community!

 

The man himself. Thanks for all the good shit Tyv, you gave us all a home :)

 

 

As for an archive of the site.. I think HTTrack could make an entire offline copy, but it'd be nice if admins gave us the official copy to download, all this history vanishing in thin air would be a sad thing.

Real talk, no bullshit (for once).

 

Officially an end of an era, although this site died a long long time ago. WoW and AJ got me through highschool. At one point in high school, I thought "WoW is forever, I will never get bored of this game". I also thought that AJ is likely going to remain around for as long as WoW will. Guess I was wrong.

 

Even after quitting ages ago back in 2011 (and subsequently playing on and off for short periods of time), I still found myself reading AJ whenever a season was about to end, that juicy sweet ass drama was the best thing since sliced bread.

 

In all honesty, I never actually cared about the game itself but rather more about the people playing it (and my social status in it - I grew such a fucking inflated ego at one point due to being good at mashing buttons in a game, cringe), and this game and this forum were always about the people (hell, if all the oldies were around I'd still prolly play the game myself). And boy were the people on this forum awesome (and I'm not talking about the offtopic faggots that extended the lifespan of this forum for an extra year now at the end). It was honestly exciting being in the company of other people like you, trashtalking, exchanging ideas, having people look up to you, it was an amazing experience.

 

Playing WoW and being an active AJ'r was basically a separate life to your real one back in the day, and I've made so many friends and contacts, even made a couple of lifelong real life friends (I met 2 of my closest IRL friends thanks to WoW), therefore I can't really feel sorry about dedicating the time into this game and this forum. It paid off multiple times. My only regret is that newfags (2012+ onwards) didn't get to experience AJ in all its glory.

 

The day AJ shuts down is honestly the day I can say a part of me dies, even if I've moved on with my life a long time ago and AJ era is nothing but a distant memory at this point.

 

Was a good hustle y'all, especially the Cruelty crew <3
