A MineCraft Story: IGN johnfjonesv In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. -Robert Frost. Never before did I ever consider in life that I would ever meet such great friends on MC. The thought of meeting people on any server, and becoming such great friends with them is staggering. I thank all of you, for being friends. Although, becoming friends took time. I first logged on cubecraft October 15, 2013. At about this time only 500 people played. I remember being a stone and spending my hours in kit pvp 2. I call kit pvp therapy when I had a bad day. While on others a strain on my soul. XD I discovered that life was hard as a stone. It was a tedious and cautious journey to achieve iron armor with the ninja kit. (It was for me) During that time I met several people @rileythesir, @Claudia, and @tbr (I forgot the numbers at the end of his name XD) these folks were my first friends. I recall teaming and all of us worked up to get better gear. @Claudia was a stone, as myself and tbr. Claudia had connections (popularity) on some cases she would receive some stuff from donors and stones. For myself, I worked at the bottom gleaning what everyone dropped. Although, my friends graciously shared! Before I ever joined CCG my previous experiences on servers were interesting. (I was banned on multiple occasions) I started the mob. (Basically, organized MC-crime) And on some cases I made people angry. I was a little too con-man like. (No more details XD) despite that I loved that old server. Then suddenly, they shut down. I felt wounded. How would I get back to my server? Eventually I gave up and looked for other servers. None of them seemed to feel appealing, until I found cubecraft. I started playing and I made it my server. Throughout my experience I never met a friendlier person then @Claudia . Again, I knew her since she was, but a mere stone. (No offense) Over the more recent months we started skyping. On the first time we skyped both of us were nervous. Honestly, we ended up talking about Spanish and vacations. It was a blast. After awhile, I got sick of stone and donated. On that same week Claudia got mod. I knew she would. It was awesome watching her evolve to the splendid staff member she is today. I donated for iron. An affordable amount for myself. I felt comfortable and more like able due to my title. (Everyone's a gold digger XD jk) I became better friends with the donators. @Walker_Walkis @deathdragon206 @kewlkat227 @TheCircleOfFire And many more................ You guys were great! Then suddenly, I discovered CCG had a forums. ( seriously I just learned 3-4 months ago!!!!) I suppose it was not advertised in game there. I developed my profile and four hundred something posts later I am here. In that time I became better friends with people, and I felt like I could see how the server operated. I observed that it was ran by a few very motivated individuals who loved the server. I have so much respect for you staff members. What you guys do is great! Then a family crisis happened, and I left the server for a month. (2 deaths in one week) it was the sh****t week of my life. (&l Language!!) when I came back it was like I never left. Everyone shouted out in the chat "welcome back and good to see ya john!" Ya'll helped me get through that season. Then I ventured onto the creative server. I met @LaserDolphin77 there. He was not officially a staff builder. Although, his stuff still was quality over quantity. I preferred building modern houses. I live and breath Bauhaus design. I worked on multiple houses Also a parkour. Those builds I still remember. They took forever yet still they did not measure up to @Laserdolphin's. After a bit, I started posting more on the forums. I recall pushing some buttons and upsetting the now chief-admin. I suggested some idea. It was great in theory. Although, I did not consider some aspects. @musemat noticed them and told me. Dang, I was not happy. We ended up arguing over 3 days. Then Musemat closed the thread. After some time I thought about what happened. I wrote Musemat an apology. (That was a hard one to write.) Now we are good friends. After a few happy months I noticed @Claudia @Aimee2323 and @TheCircleOfFire started crazy land . I laughed and thought to my self . Why not start a mature land just to rub in their face? Wow, it is now a war. With the films being made @PlasticManPeppo and evil private messages. We sieged on. I suppose we may take it too far in some places. I got griefed. Then I tried some move that got shut down. In the process I made some folks very angry. (My life XD ) I then started drifting away from the war. (In fact this week). I thought I would just back out due to boredom. I have other plans though.... In the end, I will say this server saved me. I live a very private life. Sometimes, I am more active in the digital world then the real one. (Not a good thing ) Although, I can get trapped in life. I do soooo many things for school and then things to put on my transcripts. CCG gives me friends and entertainment. I love this server, and I am going to play for as long as I can. P.S. I left out a ton of people who are my friends. I have not forgotten you... I am just tired of typing on my iphone. XD Cya'll online or on the forums later.
