Close to destruction
« on: May 06, 2013, 02:17:41 pm »
Hey,

I just wanted to show today how close I was to destruction. Without polishing or anything I wrote up that in a short time from my heart. But it seems like my kindness and determination has won again after. I am a fool - I am.

Noo, how could this not really happen? The campaign is a real time-sucker, and each and all of us here are no-lifers who spend too many hours playing a humble campaign that has beyond annoyance loading times.

Damn, damn, damn!

Anyways good job on actually reacting to the community instead of being overly positive as you have. If this had happened, I'd have posted:

"I went outside
the closedown of TCO
made me do it."
"Wohoo, we spent five hundred kay on the ground, isn't that great? I love wasting money."

Well, if this is an end, you've done a great job at this Aero. Know that you campaign is the best one i've ever played. TCO are in computers of other contries (I'm Brazilian), because its a great game.

Aero, I admire your manipulation skills. I really do.

A man who sacrificed so much for his dreams. Your determination deserves the highest respect I can give Aero. You always have my full support no matter what.

Has everybody stop payin' attention to Jail-beard's ultimate trolling?
Sad, so do I :-X
Even if our tale ends here it was a great experience. About 100K dl's of campaign - suppose that it means something.

I agree with Doomlord , you are a hard worker who expects less in return , and everybody here repsects that Aero.Reggardless of your decision , the things you mannaged to do with or without realising have been great so far.

Who :D?

Well,

That's my line too [-)...

BUT!

To be a little more serious now, I wonder what made you write this post(no, I'm not talking about the reason you would give up, I understand it). Do you think we don't respect or give enough value to what you do? Or you just wanted to say what you thought in a moment of despair and wanted to share with us, since you changed your mind, but still wanted to show us, because keeping quiet about it would be unhealthy?

Well, don't get me wrong. Either way I don't think you did something bad (even if you actually had given up). Just believe more in us and in yourself :).

AND, you can always buy the "Shino's How to Motivate Yourself Kit" ;D. You can get arrested though ::).

Well, if this is an end, you've done a great job at this Aero. Know that you campaign is the best one i've ever played. TCO are in computers of other contries (I'm Brazilian), because its a great game.

Damn it...I'm kind of ashamed of this... And Jael, to manipulate brazilian people is not difficult at all :P.

Well I don't really post here but hm, why not.  So if I am to assume correctly, you were so "close" to destruction. Ah well I think this doesn't mean you're done with the campaign. Now that's good, I like that you still have the determination and motivation to continue. You are very unlike me. I am quickly bored with projects I start myself.

That being said, it seems like you're still continuing and still have motivation. I'm happy for this because I still have the motivation to help you once I'm off of college (like a week left). I never doubted you'd stop though, even though you've been so close so many times. I know you've been close many times because sometimes you tell me, sometimes I've seen it in the texts you write or at least I think. In that way though, I'm glad you haven't tipped over that point because ever since alpha I've always wanted this game to succeed. I wanted to help in every way possible to make it better. This was to the point I spent hours meticulously writing bugs and suggestions while playing through it. Well that's how it all started anyhow.

Still, like I said before. I'm glad you're continuing it. And yes, to me it'd be a tragedy if you stopped, even if it is your choice and I'd respect it. For me, I think true defeat would be stopping though, not finishing what you started even though it's lasted so long and the end seems not even visible. I guess what I'm saying is, I've had this type of true defeat before, and it's filled with regret and what could have been. It also is in a way, at least for me, a way to be even de-motivational. Though the fact, at least from what I've read, that you're still continuing is even inspiring. Few can say that they've worked so hard on a project for so many years through whatever in life and then stuck with it. Kept working on it hours on end and making it better. To me, that's something truly to appreciate and I thank you for continuing.

Keep working hard Aero, you got a lot of supporters behind you and you'll succeed I'm sure because you keep working even when times seem bleak. I'm glad I got to work with you on whatever you sent me for as long as you did and I'm glad that this project hasn't died, even when many I see around me inevitably has.

That's all I wanted to say really, sorry if it was a bore, it seems you wrote from the heart and it was only fair I did as well. Man, I don't post that much anymore do I? Ah well, see ya guys later.
I got two playthroughs now. One on Extreme and ****! Be sure to check them out in the Walkthroughs Sub-Forum.

It's been years since my last visit to this website (or not)
And you still on your way fulfill your dream, you are a true man, Aero.
For what you have done for yourself, for the campaign, for all of us, I love and miss you sincerely!
Even though i do not play Warcraft 3 anymore, i swear that i will come back and replay the whole campaign 'till the end if you mean to complete it.
Do what you choose, do what you want to do, do what you dream to do!

Damn killa you make us weep in here.I wasn't on the old forums(even tough I played some alpha vers) but I wish I was.I remember chatting with Aero and Flecky(yes , flecky , he knows the dude for longer then you might think) about the "old times".From what I understood , the main people who helped and got Aero's attention were Kitabatakae(hope I spelled that right)  and Killa(especially Killa).

It's nice to see someone who knew aero since the start and is still with us , today , still supporting him.

Weather or not you give up Aero , know that your work wasn't in vain as you might think , you brought joy     and laughter with the campaign , you created some bonds with the website.You might not remember now but when we first met(on hive)  when I created a message  in which I tell you about how Even Icefrog has something to learn from you , you thanked me for bringing your morale up(your PC wasn't working or something).And hopefully the comments of this thread will do the same.

It has been a very long time Aero... I know that this day will come, not because I didn't my trust in you, but because I know that you still have your own life. I promised you to make a mobile version of TCO, well... I tried but it is far beyond my ability... make a games is not that simple.. it's not thing that one person can do... I tried and I gave up without telling you that...

Since that day I didn't talk to you again, actually I think I don't have the right to talk to you. You was trying your best to complete the project while I broke my promise and live my life.. I always watch you from behind.. but never dare to show up..

Hearing your words, I know that it is not a April fool joke anymore, it's for real.. I was sad at first, but while I was typing these lines, I think that you chose the right thing. I'm happy that now you're released so that you can live your happy life. You deserve that more than anymore in this forum. I heard you said before: "people come and go...". I think I can understand that somehow, it also happened to me when I made the mobile version of TCO... but I can't blame anyone on anything, they also have their own lives..  That time I was sad. I couldn't finish what I promised.

You should rest Aero. Now it 's only for yourself, but in the future, you have a family to take care of. I believe that everyone in this forum want you to be happy more than to finish this project.

My friend, I hope you all the best. Still looking forward to drinking with you in Vietnam.
... and sorry for breaking my promise..

Tears: Er...no. I mean, it was for real, but he didn't really give up you know :P. Actually, I don't know if you misunderstood him or if I misunderstood you.

Thanks Aero for everything that you have made.

A few years ago i was in hospital and i was able to play your TCO. IT was very helpful in this part of my life because you've added possitive emotions to my hearth. When i played in your game i was very happy and i was able to "survive" in this boring and full of pain place. I will never forgot this when i was crying after i finished this game.

i... just dont know what to say. Please make your life better and then come back :) I really want to see your project finished.

sorry for my bad english :)
