Kod and I are great friends, and will remain as such. Why? Cause when I started playing this game in Vanilla, NO ONE but Kod wanted to teach me how to play it. No one but Kod ran me through Sunken Temple, and when the epic sword of awesome dragon summons dropped, gave me, a little 50 something mage, the sword because it was my first epic ever, even though it was terrible for my class. No one but Kod gave me the time of day when a 16 year old girl started playing a game and had no idea what she was doing. Kod taught me everything about this game when I started.
Thank you. Agree with everything you said.
No one ever mentions the times he duels people in front of Stormwind, gives them advice and probably gold. One guy whispered me one day amazed that he was dueling Kod, and losing, and Kod later gave him 3k so he'd have the rest of the money he needed to buy a chopper.
No one mentions how many times he gives people gifts just because. He had me build a chopper for one of his guildmates for her birthday and I had to tell him to stop trying to tip me 5k gold or he wouldn't get the bike.
He paid the winner of the level one gnome race to Orgrimmar 10,000 gold and then went on to pay every single person who participated in the race, which was strictly a fun thing, no peen stroking at all.
No one mentions all you have to do is ask him and he will take time out of his schedule to teach people how to pvp simply because he likes helping others.
No one mentions that you never have to worry about where you stand with him. He doesn't !%!@%foot around kissing up to you if he doesn't like you and yet I have seen him say so many times it's ok if people don't like him. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and he doesn't go on some ridiculous, vendetta ridden war, gossiping about you.
No one mentions he's done a lot to supply rp behind the scenes like Warcraftier does. No one mentions he does rp and he doesn't allow his people to grief rpers, unless you consider the FTA griefing rp. Seems like I've heard the deflag if you don't like pvp several times. That advice goes both ways.
He's one of the most laid back people I know. He seldom gets upset. I've never seen it when/if he does anyway.
No one ever mentions if he's your friend, he's your friend. He's always there for you. He's not very good at kissing butt to make people like him. I don't either. Be my friend or don't, but make a choice. Being popular in a game isn't my greatest concern in life.
I've been warned by prominent people in the rp community I am destroying my reputation by being associated with him. If I'm smart, I will denounce him and salvage my reputation and Pia's. Pia's been here seven years. If I have to cut a friend's throat to keep it going, it's time to roll it up.
Kod knows I speak my mind to him. If I don't like something he's doing, I tell him so and he respects me for it.
Kod said he realized I was getting a lot of flak from the rp community over him and if it would help I could ask him to leave our ooc channel and denounce him in public so people would stop complaining about me. I'd take ten Kods over some of the petty, back-biting kids.
I told him if he's my friend he's my friend. He's not my friend when it's convenient and if people want to ostracize me for it, get in line. Believe me, the crap that's getting handed out now can't begin to start some of it that's gone on in CC years ago. Not a single one of you could even begin D when you got her on her wrong side.
And, no, I don't hang around him so he will carry me through arenas because that's the only way I can get cp. I've never run an arena with him. I run with Turncutt or Tenwit when there's time. Period.
Do I agree with everything he's doing? No. Do I like the stupid spams EDSR does? No. I've told him so many times and reported him.
Oh, and you also wont' find him complaining to high heaven about something on forums and then jumping to an alt to get achieves in the very event you are complaining about.
