In honor of Mordrid

Well, KnucklesE has posted a message from Mordrid that has since been deleted or edited out. I must say that the forums will take an impact, but at the same time I think all of us will grow a bit more from this experience. I think I speak for all of us when I say we were all impacted in some way by him, and it will be a long time before we will ever forget him.

"hi everyone.

i want to appologize to the members of this thread. some of you i have told that the thread would be around for a long time, for that i do appologize also. my patients with this site has come to an end, i am tired of waiting for this game to get its many problems fixed, and i really dont want to keep spending money on a game, that apparently, will always have serious flaws. i have come to realize that no matter what chaotic does about bugs, there will always be bugs in this game, because there will always be new sets coming out.

over the last 9 months i have been trying to make the best effort i could on the site, in the hopes that i would get a full time job with the company. i went to comiccon for the main purpose of getting that job. there i was offered a job, so i went to gencon to get more information on it, only to find out the position wasnt exactly what i was expecting. spending all that time, money and effort trying to become an employee of the company, ended up preventing me from spending the time, money and effort trying to find the job i should have been looking for. when i got home from gencon, i realized that i was completely out of money, had to sell my car, and put my house up for sale, ended up not having a job to earn money with, ended up having a serious psychological breakdown, and putting myself in the hospital for four days.

so after waisting my time, money and effort trying to improve the site with suggestions, finding bugs, helping new players with strategy and game play, finding ways to inprove the threads and just trying to be the most help i can to the site and members, i have come to one conclusion.

I CAN NO LONGER TAKE PART IN THIS GAME, ONLINE, OFFLINE OR *** AN EMPLOYEE.

Kyrick, you are the reason why i am alive right now and not d e a d. a few weeks ago we had a conversation about how i was trying to find myself. that conversation was the one thing that made me realise i needed to go to the hospital that weekend. if it wasnt for that one conversation, i would be pushing up daisies now. thank you.

Occasus, you have so much going for you, for being so young. i hope you get everything you seek in life. you have been a great friend to talk to and to meet. thank you

Savage, we never really talked until comiccon was over. for that i am sorry, cause our conversations after it have been meaningful and fun. thank you

Hyperfuedz, we have only been conversing for a 2 months or so. you and occasus seem to be very much alike, too smart for your own good. we have had some good conversations. thank you

Blargers, you have been one of the main reasons why i havent left earlier. you are the cornerstone of this site. if the company ever loses you, it will crumble like a house of cards. thank you for putting up with me, and allowing me to rant.

to everyone in this thread. i am truely sorry that i can no longer participate with this site. if someone wants to make a new thread and copy and paste the information over to it, they can.

yours truely
mordrid"

One last time Mordrid, let's all get chaotic!

I'm sorry to ask, but I'm not sure I understand this.What as happen?

Occasus said...

Mordrid left Chaotic for various problems with his life. I added his message to my blog post.

Gobliin said...

Thank, I had a problem so I could see all the post (or maybe I just read to fast..). Now I saw it all. Personally, I think it is a really bad news. Mordrid as made some remarkable effort to improved the game. I sad that this devotion as such a bad drawback...

Revelation said...

Dude this really sucks, I like playing Mordid, I play him a lot went the game started

SaintJohan said...

As cruel as this may sound, most of his problems are from poor judgment. First off, he used up enough of his money that he created financial issues for himself (ie. selling his car/house). Whether he spent a lot of money or spent what little money he had on the game shows he had poor management skills.

He should know that any game (actually it's not specific to games) has bugs/flaws. He has the impatience of a child and doesn't understand that things take time. Although he tried to make the forums a better place, he created more problems with his constant whining and argued with members who didn't believe what he did.

All in all, he finally made a good decision in quitting a game that basically messed up his life (fairly obvious addiction). For that, kudos to him.

Gobliin said...

It is true that anything that have great potential can become addictive. At is core, Chaotic should as been a great card game with easy to find opponent and a innovative game play.

Mordrid saw that potential and believe in it. He work a lot to help the game reach is true potential and that merit recognition.

But anyone can become to enthusiastic can be blind by it. At least, Mordrid finally saw is addiction and made a choice in the wright way. It must had been a hard decision for im since he put so much effort, time and money to the game. For me, this is a mark of courage.

Mordrid, thank for all you have done and I wish you luck in the near future.

well i have to agree with saintjohan he got way to cot up in the game and you should neaver spend all your money on game because i mean look at yugioh its dieing out makeing all ower card well worthless untill they become celtores ideams and that if. note to every one if you are spending all your time and money on chaotic or any other card game you should GET A LIFE (DUBLE UNDERLNE) its no worth and in a few years we will regret spending all your money on it. well michaelnono thats who i am if you take offens to my post

I am sorry to see Mordrid go. Although I never met him in real life, I knew he was a nice guy. I have a bad problem onspending my money on cards too. I may be a kid, that doesn't need too much money, but I have enough for the future, and as for time, I am always doing something Chaotic. Card games are just too adicting. I don't get it. It was incredibly easy for me to quit Poke'Mon, but right now, I don't think Icould stopplaying Chaotic (not that I want to, I'm just saying). I hope Mordrid ends up winning the lotery or something to get himout of debt and all.

KnucklesE here....


I am so sorry he had to leave and I guess we can learn not to get addicted to this game. Also he posted that letter on the team forums at his team. He edited out before I could copy it but after some searching I found another player had copied it somewhere else and I took that which was the exact same as what Mordrid said and posted it in general chat. Long Live Mordrid!

God Bless.....

Occasus,

Thanks for posting this...

SainJohan, I agree. Although, Mordrid sounds, with all due respect because he is my elder of several years, insane. He has gotten himself into financial trouble because of a game (and other things I'm sure) when he likely knew he didn't have enough money to sustain that kind of lifestyle. A simple way to have assured no problems would be to make sure he had a good full-time job and to budget properly. For example, 100-300 dollars per month on cards if he had an income of at least 5000 a month and make sure he saves a most of the money. I do not understand how he could have possibly killed himself because of problems that could've easily been solved. I'm sorry, but Mordrid's problems have all come from decisions he had made.

HyperFeudz said...

Mordrid has had a great effect on me with this game. He pushed me to be the player I am today. My first encounter playing Mordrid was on 3v3, and he creamed me obviously. Ever since then we played quite frequently and had many long talks about the game/life and such. Now I'm sitting at rank 30, and I owe it to him. I've actually helped him change his decks around with my ideas! He's a great player, and I'm sad to see him go. Hopefully he'll get his life more stable, and he'll come back!

Occasus said...

Most of his financial problems came after he bought all of his cards. The two aren't really linked. He was laid off from his job which sort of spiraled into this. The economy was bad, and he got the brunt of the force.

Anonymous said...

im deeply impacted by this ...
i was going to meet up with him at a place we buy our cards from, and i was so excited too!
but now i seriously doubt i will ...
lets all wish him a happily ever after ...
(even if it is'nt with chaotic)

atoyouchaotic said...

Aneocon :(

Anonymous said...

oh i din't know he got laid off from his job i thought he was just dumby (no offens) and spent all his money on cards and travel to get more cards and gen con and stuff like that and to who ever said only spend like 100 dollers a month on cards thats way off i don't you should spend more then 20 bucks a month on cards but im a
f2p player . michaelnon again :p

Occasus said...

I don't really think I should get into it, but he had a lot of bad things going on for him lately and things got even worse. Mordrid isn't a stupid guy, he just has really bad luck at times.

Anonymous said...

yokojakamoko here and I can't beleive he's gone, he was also such an influence on me even if I didn't know him much and it's sad to see him go, I hope he ends uo alright because he's such a good guy.

fire2nice said...

Thanks for posting this Occ, it's a lesson to all of us.
As for Mordrid, much luck to him.
I may actually follow in his footsteps if this game keeps up in this direction(down).
I mean, I'm a senior in High School, just finishing up my college process, and I don't think I want to spend all my precious time on a game that could end up just being a horrible experiment.
Maybe they could have just been a bit more patient in TC Digital and slow down the evolution of chaotic you know? Because they are moving way too fast and are still(supposedly) in beta. Usually games in beta aren't supposed to go live. And beta testers are usually PAID, not forced to pay for the game themselves you know?
Most of it may be Mordrid's fault, but i think the reason he ended up leaving was (like he said) in part due to TC Digital itself...

irock72 here


it feels bad to see one of the best players on go but it seems he got a little too attached to the game.

Anonymous said...

hey fire2nice i would like to tell you that most beta testers aren't really paid or at lest for online gamesor at lest that ive seen mostly there paid in member ship to the game and they get to play the game before everyone else but yeah makeing the game go live befor its done with beta does seam kinda dumb. michaelnono

atoyouchaotic said...

Its true most of the people that do beta testing arent actually paid but have paid for a membership, allowing them to be able to do beta testing if they want to.And I agree Makeing the game go live while it is live isverydumb if you ask me.

fire2nice said...

okay, so no money, but it still shouldn't be live yet if it is still in beta

Atoyou said...

Agreed

Anonymous said...

dang, thats messed up. i never really knew him on or off of chaotic, but i heard of him. who knew that a simple game could be so much trouble

Anonymous said...

fire2nice,
beta or not, no one ever said anyone had 2 spend money on the game, its free as advertised 2 play online just with a crappy deck, people spend money because they want 2 win, doesn't matter in what it is, look at sports, look at politics, people spend money 2 get an edge other the comp. it truly is sad 2 see mordrid in up in the position he's end, and whats sadder is he wont be the last...

Anonymous said...

k i still see mordid on the forums so has he left or not?

I never thought that happened i woul'dve never guessed. mordid has helped me and i owe him so much for that. i know this is really rude but im wondering the postion mordid was offered. and i cant believe the company didn't see mordid as a code master he's ranked twelveish really amazing at forums the most helpful guy.and probabbly amzing in battle. im really sad to see this and hope all goes well.
