@XuRnT What does mayonnaise have to do with it??

@david99 Sent. Shirt looks great btw!

Today we begin to recognize and celebrate the leaders who make W2 a reality for all of us!

Tora hosts tournaments and puts forth of his own hard-earned blood, sweat, and tears into the W2 universe. Tournaments are something fun that draws a crowd, both players and fans to become the audience watching the players play, which all serves to keep this community more lively and active and interesting. Tora also deals with disciplinary issues on the server, which is never an easy thing to deal with, when you have to deal with trolls, idiots, and trashtalkers on a regular basis. It must be aggravating at times. We all owe a debt of gratitude to those who work for us, who enforce policies that make the server a better place to be, and who are active in the community and promoting the game. We may not agree on a lot of things, but I do still hold in esteem the leadership position and the human that fills it, even if he hates my guts. ;) Thanks, Tora.

XuRnT is the heart and face and voice of the server. XuRnT probably does more for the community than anyone else that I know about. He also hosts tournaments, and sees fantastic turnouts. This one coming up this weekend is sure to be a blast. My retirement from W2 has been met with resistance, as all my friends keep messaging me to come play, and then there are these exciting tournaments that just can't be missed! This secret smurf masquerade tournament is super-exciting and coming up soon on SUNDAY OCT. 29, 2017 3 PM!! Hope you call can join in! XuRnT also hosts a facebook page and a Youtube channel promoting the game and the server. He regularly updates them with news and games and announcements. He provides professional quality commentary on games played, bringing the action to life for all the fans. He has over 1000 subscribers, I believe. XuRnT keeps on top of player news and sightings, announcing old gamers who pop in now and then for a visit. XuRnT hosts beginner-friendly games on assorted maps, bringing both new blood and new game variety into the player pool, helping us all. He is one of the people who understands that without new players, this game will die. The hardcores who love the game are "shooting themselves in the foot" by being anal to all newcomers, because they are helping to kill the game they would like to keep playing...not very prudent!

Without XuRnT, this game would probably be dead. We owe the existence of our favorite game in large part to XuRnT, so thank you XuRnT!!

*Round of applause*

@eyyy im walkin here Who is the "her" who needs communism lessons?
Maybe you should have meditated on that before writing that lengthy response!

Meditating on your vague answer proved fruitless. :)

Why, in your view, should I withhold from sharing my views in response to your apparently pro-communism views as I doubt the only other potential "her" will ever visit the W2 forums?

My response isn't particularly lengthy. It took about 90 seconds give or take, and I have yet to see a rebuttal even in your ages-long, largely vacuous leftism thread that I've occasionally scanned, that convinces me to want to embrace this foreign ideology.

That being said, I may move it to another thread.

@didamosa Ugh. Sent it to Ogre by mistake since he was on recent transactions and I was in a hurry. I re-sent to you. Hopefully he'll give it back to me. Let me know if you got it.

Just because she doesn't dissolve into a puddle of tears at rudeness doesn't mean that it's not more pleasant to be around people who are friendly and welcoming. But you're right. I'm sure you can handle it. :)

@eyyy im walkin here Who is the "her" who needs communism lessons? Blid. Communism doesn't work. There are many reasons I would never want to live under communist rule, but here are a few of them:

1. Personal freedoms disappear, including freedom of religion, which is very important to me. Everything becomes government-controlled, including what you're allowed to think and believe. I am an advocate for personal freedom. "My right to swing my arm ends where my neighbour's nose begins." (John B. Finch, 1882)

2. Equal pay for everyone, regardless of skill or effort, will result in another kind of inequality. The hard-working people will fully support the lazy and unmotivated. If everyone is given everything for free, what will motivate them to work for it? You will always have people who care and people who don't, people who work hard, and people who don't.

3. "Shared" everything means no one values it. People who own a home are going to care about it more than renters or freeloaders.

4. Free thinking and free speech are gone.

I enormously value the freedom I currently live with, even though those freedoms are being threatened more and more as certain out-of-control minority groups try to criminalize anyone who would disagree with them, to the point of imprisoning dissenters, all in the name of "TOLERANCE". It's more like, "TOLERATE EVIL! COMPLAIN, AND YOU'RE OUR NEXT TARGET!"

I'm delighted to learn your move has been a success and that your new place is not the Taj Mahal, but has become a source of contentment for you.

Living in the Taj Mahal would afford little privacy with all the tourists and enployees. I value privacy over luxury. Wouldn't you tend to agree?

It looks very real.

There isn't really any compelling reason I can see why it couldn't be real.

It could be fake, granted, but I've seen both real and fake skeletons, and if this one were a fake, it would be a very, very expensive, elaborately done fake.

Why would anyone put that kind of money into something, only to leave it outside to be destroyed by the elements and curious onlookers who might want to take a piece home, sit on it, climb on it, etc.?

I don't care what anyone calls it, but I call it like I see it.

Lambchops is one of few men in the W2 universe not lacking heart, brain, or balls. So many boys and so few men.

Lamby, I appreciate your rare gutsiness. Well done.

Oh my. Easycompany is clearly a victim of excessive childhood screen time. 55 posts...of nonsense. Poor thing. :/

Oh, wow, that looks nice!

@didamosa Shipping refund sent.

That's great ur gf wants to play. Just keep her away from like Startale and Jordan unless you want things said to her that I can't repeat in a public forum that kids might read. They would just ban her anyways. The group on the T-shirt right hand side is safe to play with, all the community favourites. Except Koorb. I have no idea how he got on the shirt. He hates everyone. The middle group is usually friendly to newcomers of either gender, except Tora doesn't like women. She could just use a generic or male name of course. I just want to make sure she has a good experience the first time she tries it.

It is time to celebrate two more featured players displayed on the lovely Warcraft 2 Fan T-Shirt Limited Edition Custom Print 2017 unique collector's item.

Poscow is Canadian I think. He started playing back in 1998 so has been around for just about 20 years. Poscow prefers 1s to team games and Viruz is his favorite opponent. He is a hardcore GOW fan and also prefers F to EF. He is a pretty methodic, cookbook player who has mastered the standard strategies of rushing and fast lusting, and admits he is weak in "shenanigan" style playing. He is an enjoyable personality and not prone to the commonly seen fits of rage and rampant trash talk so prevalent on the server. He wants to be a millionaire.

Alf-attack is so fierce and powerful and intense of a player that he freaks me right out. He is playful and good-natured as well. I apologetically can't remember if he's from Sweden or Poland, but I think it's Sweden. VSing him and his pard alf-attacking in the water map finals was quite memorable, and they were good sports and took the championship in style. Alf-attack plays map variety and doesn't fear getting his toes wet. He is very adaptable and has a prolific arsenal of techniques at his disposal, so keeps his opponent on his toes. Wow all this talk about toes. I feel like I should post a toes picture to commemorate alf.

Uhhhhhh...how exactly would that work?

You can attempt to coordinate whatever you like once you have the shirt, but if it's an authentic one you're looking for, that's not something I can offer.

I can write whatever you like in black marker myself though. Once the shirts are paid for. Which you haven't done yet.

Don't feel bad, Tora.

I've actually been afflicted by limerence to the point of stalkerish behavior too. I'm not even kidding when I tell you I actually stole a guy's half-drunk water bottle from his truck at night so I could touch it and put my mouth on it. I know. Bit extreme. But it's true.

Identifying and educating yourself on the phenomenon is the first and crucial step to recovery.
It is involuntary and can hit anyone, anytime, anywhere.

I'm sorry this happened to you.

From "Limerence" on Wikipedia, these are the physical and psychological effects of limerence:

Physical Effects

The physiological correlations of intense limerence can include seizure-like trembling, pallor, flushing, heart palpitations, pupil dilation and general weakness. Awkwardness, stuttering, shyness, and confusion predominate at the behavioral level. Less common effects include insomnia, loss of appetite, and passing out.

If there is extensive anxiety, incorrect behaviour may torpedo the relationship, which may cause physical responses to manifest intensely. Some people acutely feel these effects either immediately or following contact with the limerent object. Blended is dire ecstasy or keen despair, depending on the turn of events.

The sensitivity that stems from fear of rejection can darken limerent objects' perceived body language. Conflicted signs of desire may be emitted that confuse judgment. Often the limerent object is currently involved with another or is in some other way unavailable.

A condition of sustained alertness, a heightening of awareness and an enormous fund of energy to deploy in pursuit of the limerent aim is developed. The sensation of limerence is felt in the midpoint of the chest, bottom of the throat, guts, or in some cases in the abdominal region.This can be interpreted as ecstasy at times of mutuality, but its presence is most noticeable during despair at times of rejection.

Psychological Effects

Sufferers complain of abandonment, despair, and diabolically humiliating disappointment. A sense of paralyzing ambiguity predominates, punctuated by pining. The fact of intermittent or nonreciprocal response lends to labile vacillation. This limbo is the threshold for mental prostration.

^^I've smurfed against you so many times I've lost count. So there are a lot more interactions than you realize.

Wow, what a stalker.
