just wanted to say i got kickbanned tonite when i was messing with draco, i believe. anyway, i'm not enjoying game anymore so i'm quitting. i was going to play til i got to 30k frags but this just expedited my departure. i really have not liked game since emotes off. it's not cuz of scripting either. i just can't stand game with no emotes. jenny joining u guys has part to do with my decision to leave too, very surprised by this. Good bye to all you Sol. It was fun. Specially good bye to Kernow. Good luck to you all in real life.
Your friend, Wehr

Actually this wouldn't surprise me if it's really Wehr. Hopefully it's not, but I understand if he wants to quit. Wehr if you read this, we could look into re-enabling emotes; the only problem is if it starts being abused a lot again, especially against new players or in otherwise legit FFA. I know that you tend to enjoy abusing it because you're good at it, but maybe we could work something out. If not, peace man. Perhaps we'll see you after you take a break for awhile.

what were you doing before sol server existed?
i mean... sol server exists for 6 months only. you play this game much longer. cant you just return to where you played before? and i guess there will be alot of ppl here joining you there.
i mean, you played before, before sol made a server where emotes are disabled...
and you dont have to get in too deep into sol matters... because it only gets you mentally involved... and that is an exhausting thing

Wehr's not really involved in our politics. I'm sure this has more to do with the game itself and his changing focus than our server specifically.
Take care Wehr. Maybe I'll run into you on the street someday and we can ignorantly pass each other by, perhaps mentally labeling one another as douchebags as all good judging citizens do as they pass strangers.

@xaso, I think he used to go to ATS alot back in the old days.
Information such as this rarely suprises me. He's an old player, there comes a time when u just have to move on. He's probably accomplished everything he feels he can in JK2, and he isnt enjoying the game anymore anyway. He's probably been sat on the fence a while thinking about quitting, and the emote issue has just given him that little push over the edge.
I suppost it depends on the individual, on how long you want to spend on this game. One day, you will log on server, and realise it just isnt fun anymore. That time is coming for all of us, and when it does, ther will be difficult decisions to made.
Many old and great players have left. I was talking to Eternal yesterday about this kind of issue. I was asking him how after 8 years, can he still enjoy playing the game. Im franky astounded the he didnt bored of it a long time ago. Of course new players will always join JK2, but his generation has passed, all his old school JK2 friends from 02, 03 04 ect, have all passed on. He said that in the old generation the are people who were better at JK2, than he is now. That seems unreal, because hes the best JK2 player ive ever seen. But im so surpised after all that time, he can still find fun in game. Although the fact that he can pwn whoever he likes must be a fun factor lol. But that time will be coming for eternal too, its just a case of when. Its seems that leaving the game comes imminenty closer for all. Be it in 6 months or 2 years, its gonna happen.
Four leaf clover (although a scripter) was a great JK2 player, and in the same league as eternal skill wise, he hung up his saber about 3 months ago. Many may follow suit in foreseeable future, who knows.
I understand wehr's problems, its not that anybody has upset him, or that he has any particular problems with the game or people within it. Its just not enjoyable to him anymore, and we play this game primarily to enjoy ourselves. If that isnt happening, then you need to ask what can you do about it, or is it time to call it a day?
The emote issue may have have cost him a little quality of play, or even really annoyed him, but im sure he's been thinking about making this decision for a good while now. This kind of thing is rarely spur of the moment. I think the emote problems was just the spark that lit the bomb.
GL wehr, you are great friend of SoL's and you willl be missed. Take care in the future mate. Bye.

To clearup an issue. Yes, it was auto-admin that k-banned me. Before your server I had quit JK2 for like 8 months. I may come back next winter when there is snow and I'm totally bored to tears. In summers I wakeboard a lot at our cottage up north. Some other parting comments. 4leaf used aimbot. I don't consider him that great of a player cuz of this. When you use aimbot it turns you towards your opponent. He would use speed, abs and aimbot which would make it impossible to out redhit him unless you aimbotted too. JKBOT was most destructive package ever invented in jk2. I say a last word on emotes too. They are an incredibly defensive tool. A lot of ppl got angry with me becasue of my offensive antics but you should never forget they are an incredible defensive tool too. Nothing I hated more then being redhit by some random idiot lamer when I was afk 2 seconds. All this is countered by dcsit or dcsit in air. With a dcsit it would take 5 kicks or a bunch of sts to kill you. Where if emotes are off and you afk for a bit 1 straight on redhit can kill you. Emotes are also great defense to common speeed. abs, redhit style of ls. When you see redhit coming you emote and redhit cannot damage you. Nothing I loved more then emoting in JAmod. Took way more skill then in dcmod. Hackers ruined JAmod, always crashing server. A lot of this is just thoughts on state of game. My intent was definitely not to dictate, or sway, politics in Sol. I leave dictating to Outcast. He is so good at that. I'll never understand that guy.
Bye my friends, Wehr
