I joined either late 2014 or early 2015 and played deathrun for the most part in Poseidon. I’d come home from school and hop right on until I went to bed, and I enjoyed every minute of it due to the people on the server making a gamemode into something really amazing. I’d continue doing the same thing and I eventually went for trusted and had gotten accepted, and that feeling is like no other. When you’re somewhat young and get a rank on a server you love deeply it means a lot and gets the adrenaline pumping. There were a lot of people I looked up to during deathrun such as Tyger, Meh, Hazza and Llamaz were the big ones. I remember being on the server about 2 weeks after I had gotten respected (I had about 200 hours on the server), and saw that Minnyboy (Manager at the time) had demoted a few Moderators, so after seeing that I had applied and got accepted within a few days, and from that moment on would be the most momorable moments of my time during Poseidon. I met the best of people I could (fRONTEZ, RMGtheOG, Salty Badger, Tyger, Ryan, Levi, Hamad, Grizzly, Llamaz, (both) Goomba to name a few).
I would then go on and be a Moderator for a solid 8-10 months (mainly due to the face I didn’t know how referrals worked (I though they had to refer you, and you couldn’t ask for one)), until I was told I could ask and applied that instant. It wouldn’t be until Minnyboy resigned that I would get admin, and that’s when Simon came to manage the server, and honestly made deathrun feel less and less of an enjoyable gamemode. I ended up resigning and moving onto Murder where it wasn’t a fun gamemode but depending on who was on, it could be fun. I managed to get up to Head Admin under Monkeys management, but resigned due to the gamemode being boring as fuck.
A year or two would pass and I was more active on the forums, and was playing csgo a lot more, and then my life did a complete 180, and the people I met through Poseidon helped me beyond words, and I’m so grateful that this community was birthed as I didn’t know what would’ve happened otherwise. The best part about this community is the community itself. It went through some really rough patches but it always seemed to end up on a good note most of the times. In the last couple years I’ll admit that I’ve been a complete ass for a close majority of it, and now that Poseidon is closing, it’s only fair to be respectful.
And to anyone that I’ve offended or hurt during my time here (except for one person who shall not be named), I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being a nuisance to the forum staff when I was being an ass. I wish every the best in their life even if I don’t talk to you again, I hope you find happiness and the love that you want. To anyone that still plays this game, god bless you and your soul. Shoutout to al the owners for making this the great fucking place it has been, without any of you this’d be non-existent and now you can see just how much Poseidon meant to people.
I love you all, and if you want add me on steam feel free to do so.
