I am sad to report the passing of cJBlast

Post by BaronVonRotterdam » Tue Jul 07, 2020 8:41 pm

cJBlast was a long time OG member of this UT2004 gaming community. You know him from his work on our loading screens for the server. He was a good man. We will be creating a powerup named after him in his honor. Please post in here if you have any ideas for a powerup.

People like cJBlast made running this community a pleasure and he will be sorely missed. RIP, old friend.

:( ;( (u)

...speechless... ...rest in peace...

not many may remember or know him, but i do.

when i started to play here my first connection was with a 56k modem, and with that
mostly a ping around 220-280.. ...thats why many players often accused me to be reason for
the (still existing) world famous wellknown "LAAAG"..

cjBlast often backed me up or helped me out that time, i think without him i would
have lost interest to play here a long time ago.

if i remember right he also made some maps!


when i read you want honour him with a new powerup, immediately one thing
popped in my mind:

the cjBlastBOMB-powerup,

as a 1-2 time per map guaranteed drop,
like the rare serious-sam-bomb from the game serious sam,
activating that PU (or artifact) will immediately instakill all monsters. just like a
huge BLAST! (1-2seconds, not that long like broken arrow!)
and after that maybe grant every player temporary invulnerability for x seconds

wouldnt that be a BLAST?

sounds like becoming sentimental...

ats
Do not try kill THIS bug !!! ->Image Your monitor may not like it...

Those who correct my English will be shot! Survivors will be shot again!

Thank you for sharing your memories Amy. He will be missed. That limited broken Arrow idea you have is a really good one. Unless someone else posts anything better, I think this is what I'll do.
