R.I.P. Ch0ppy
« on: June 02, 2020, 04:09:17 PM »
Just saw this on the discord from Droid.

A few hours ago a guy called "ethman" logged in & said that his father Ch0ppY passed away yesterday (June 1st, 2020) at 3 a.m.
Manuel «Manny» Simmonds aka Ch0ppY was 61 y.o. and it was probably a heart attack.

Here's the email of  Ch0ppY's son Ethan :



----



He was I believe #2 most played games behind braviet on the server. We lost a huge part of the server.

AcidGangsta and ^AdaM^ just got someone new to play with up in heaven.

Damn. Sorry to anybody who was close with him. We lost a good member of the community. Always hosting games and was always friendly from what I could tell

Im so sad, choppy was my boy, the only one who literally make me love to play chop sometime.

During the last month i was playing alot of chop with him on the morning, we had much fun cuz i was saying i was the best canadian chopper of all time, and we both know i was pretty bad at chop, we were both laughing hard about it :(

I still consider myself happy to have played so much game with him during those last month, like if destiny give me some time with him before he goes to a better place, R.I.P choppy.

I was saddened to hear this when Adam-w told me and even more reading his son's words. I wasn't super close with Ch0ppy but QUICK{hR} one of my very best friends on here for years was close with Ch0ppy and we'd all play PBall together sometimes back in the day. He was great for this game helping to host for people as mentioned and he was always very nice, especially for Warcraft 2 player standards. With all those games you know he loved this shit what a champ. He hosted so many games for so many people and was always a staple of this whole community and the chop sub community of course. I hope his family knows he touched the lives of a lot of people who never even met him in real life. I also hope his family finds peace and gets through this the easiest possible. His family, friends, and the Warcraft 2 community has just lost a legend!

I thought I'd also mention one of my best online friends from Warcraft 2 Armyreign on east AKA Fuku and Armynova on RU. I knew him 10+ years before his sudden disappearance and I ended up finding out he died. If you know someone online long enough and talk to them, play with them, and get to know them it really can be sad when they die. Army was an awesome PBaller, good at other customs and a solid Warcraft 2 player in general. With Ch0ppy dying just thought I'd mention how losing a long time online friend sucks.

I hope you guys are hanging out together somewhere in the afterlife and owning! Gone but never forgotten: Ch0ppy, Armyreign, AcidGangsta, and ^AdaM^ !

Well I’ll say Ch0ppy was a great guy and the chop community lost one of their greats. Losing Ch0ppy is a huge blow to the war2 community.

I’m going to host a 2v2 chop tournament this weekend for the guy.

In the mornings you could always count on at least one game being up thanks to him. He really did have a lot of love for the game and the people playing it.

He was pretty dang competitive for his age too. I hope my wrists and fingers can still move at 61.

I’m going to host a 2v2 chop tournament this weekend for the guy.

Maybe we could try make it a 4v4 tourney, with scrambled teams, seed the players into fair teams. Maybe we could get 3-4 teams? Because Ch0ppy loved 4s.

Ch0ppy gave a lot to this community, he will also be missed a lot!
