I got caught by it, I admit!

The only thing that led to me guessing it's a prank was the broken english while your wall showed you're from Australia. Then I started to look closely at the nick and somehow it clicked that it was an anagram. Hivim Caroarz sounds like an armenian name. IF you were to get the Armenian flag on the profile or something like that you'd have totally threw me off.

And I laughed for some 5 minutes with the "Hak and Kil" the maserpiece of mapmaking...:lol: :lol:

The first message I saw was the one on my wall, of course. I knew instantly that it was a multi. Otherwise, why would a blue question mark know enough about the site to come kiss my ass? It was also clear from the tortured spelling. Minor spelling mistakes are accidental; catastrophically bad spelling is not. I decided to be stoic about it and not give whoever it was the satisfaction of a response.

As I came across more and more of these, however, I started enjoying them. And then I came to hak and kill, and I decided I liked this guy!

I never got hooked because of the bad spelling. If the spelling was nice I'd answer it and got hooked.

There have been a few actual members through here that were pretty much Razors guy there. Possibly aided by the fact things were simpler and they would not have needed to know as much to pretend to know everything but, it sounded farmiliar still.

  • motts44
  • kenny.smooth

Special mention for ucaBears and anyone from a clan called The Scions of Glory, though they were just a little kids when they joined. I will add more if I remember any.

Anyway, I thought it was funny, did not realize it was an April fools gag, just figured it was someone with illusions of grander.

Do like most of the people at the top of the board who are relatively new. Get really good at 4 to 5 maps, and then refuse to play anything else.

Stay focused and don't get distracted by wanting to meet other people or socialize or allow other people to teach you anything.

And stay away, far, far away from those mid rankers who like to play various settings and are willing to let score suffer to learn. A good rule for you would be to check their cross map medal status. If gold, stay away. If platinum, stay far away. Their rank may be one thing, but they probably know a few things that you don't even if you already know everything.
