Welcome back!

Hi Everyone,

I don’t know where to begin. I am sure by now most, if not all of you may have noticed the forum and blog being down for the past few days. Due to an error on our hosting providers side 3 of our Virtual Private Servers (VPS) got deleted. Yes, that means exactly what you are thinking. All our info got lost, we lost all our data, our posts, our accounts, our databases, our csgo servers, our player stats, most of our bans, our blog and its posts. I used to keep backups on one of the 3 servers, but it didnt occur to me that all 3 servers would be lost to us all of a sudden so never kept a local backup on my PC. The only local backup I had was from March 2013, so we have to begin from there.

Took the opportunity of this tragedy to upgrade our forum software to vbulletin. Hosting provider bought the license for us due to the booboo he made. We had to import the PHPBB database from March 2013 to VBulletin. It was no easy task, hence why it took so long to bring the forum back online. Thanks a lot to Toothyy who played a huge part in helping me reorganize A LOT of stuff. We are still no where close to finished, but felt that forum should be released for us to at least have a place to communicate again. We will make edits and changes along the way. Nothing you see is final right now, including the forum skin and so on. There a lot of nice features to VB and I am sure you all will get used to it.

Spread the word to others who got lost along the way, guide them to the forums, tell em they have to go to site B not A, take them through lower B so they dont get caught in mid from CT spawn.

    Just took the time to read this. Tragic indeed for the loss, but this will help in the future. Keep you on your toes, to back up more consistently on your PC at home.

    The forum is great, I am loving it. It was a weird transition after fully getting used to the old forum. This one is very similar, but I like it more actually. The lay out, colors, etc. etc.

    Renegade Army sure is back and better than ever! Great admins, great members, great community.

    I’m here because of the reddit post… so I want to say this. I personally have made a movie about FODDER in the past for GotFrag when it was alive(as I have made several movies in my time between 2006-2008 for other players, semi-pro to pro), and the only reason I even agreed to make a video of him was because I wanted to get my hands on demos of him playing vs respectable opponents. But I realized something almost immediately. He is a showoff. He goes for very weird plays on a consistent basis. And usually it’s an all-in maneuver. For instance he will go for ninja defuses on save rounds consistently or knife kills, whatever he can do to get under a players skin. And he will also do very very silly rushes. Rushes that you almost never (with a few exceptions) will ever see any other semi-pro or higher player do UNLESS HE KNOWS he is playing against players he can get away with it in. But everytime he plays this very weird style, it either gets him killed, or he goes huge. There’s no inbetween. When I was speccing him in your pub earlier I was laughing at how often he got away with the same plays I would see him fail in, in matches. His level of aggression has its huge risks vs competent players in a match setting, but in a pub vs players of that low of skill level, he can get away with doing whatever the hell he wants (as could ANY semi-pro player really). So I just want to say, that while FODDER was indeed a top player, players such as f0rest, n0thing, GeT_RiGhT, and others could get away with the same shenanigans in your pub, if not even more so. He’s on par with your average low level Euro Pro and around the middle of the American pro scene back in CS’s prime. What made him stand out was his very aggressive, very unusual playstyle that involved going for ridiculous wallbangs, and aggressive I-dont-give-a-fuck positions. I believe he and pondfiller were 2 of the first AWPers in the American competitive scene that made ‘quickscoping’ popular. ksharp made it somewhat popular in 1.5 but the game changed drastically after that and ksharp had his falloff. The difference being was that pondfiller, FODDER, and really everyone from team SLP had not attended any major LAN tournaments by that point, so their legitimacy was called into question time and time again on GotFrag and such until they finally went to LAN. I remember a match between RoA (a team FODDER was on in CAL-Main at the time), and gamersa (a friend of mine’s team that would later on make it to CAL-Premier). What was so weird about that match is FODDER played absolutely NOTHING like he did in pugs/10mans that I had seen demos of. He was incredibly paranoid, slow to rotate, and passive. He was picking off people based on their own mistakes. FODDER had minimal impact in that match, besides an insane (not for his aim but for his positioning) 1v4 on an eco. They went on to win the match. And I think part of the reason FODDER never was on a top top team , not just a regular Invite team like FD was because he didnt ‘fit’ into the meta at the time of playing calm and collective. All he knew was FAST FAST FAST. Up in your face.. etc and that often didn’t go with the strats most teams at that level had at the time. It’s kind of like how GeT_RiGhT was a wasted talent until fnatic picked him up, and had the team revolve around his aggression. I think the difference between FODDER and GeT_RiGhT is FODDER never got his chance on a team that would revolve around him. The most accomplished team FODDER ever ended up on was Frag`Dominant, which was an incredibly good CEVO-P team, but they never went to major LANs against teams like fnatic, SK, Virtus.Pro, and so on because of lack of major sponsors to do so.They were purely a national team. Though I have seen FODDER do 10mans and such vs/with most of the Euros. Had FODDER been born in a country like Sweden he probably would have been on fnatic instead of GeT_RiGhT right now to be honest, because they both play near-identically in style… but the what ifs could go on for days. If you look at the interview: cArN ‘grilled’ episode #30 you’ll see f0rest and GeT_RiGhT wanted to cut DSN at one point… so rosters are a lot more volatile than you’d think. If FODDER had been Swedish, since hes an AWPER it would not have been unheardof for him to have replaced him at that point in time. All I know is he does the whole YouTube thing atm for CS:GO and I’m not sure what his intentions are (whether or not he even wants to go pro in CS:GO).
    But the bottom line is this: FODDER does not cheat. I think I am more than qualified to say he is clean after having been PERSONALLY sent 30+ demos of his matches in the past by both him, and various people who believed he cheated. If he had cheated… I would have simply made a ‘bust movie’ about him and laughed at ‘just another cheater’. Obviously that wasn’t the case. Take care fellas, 1.6 <3
