The following "paper" is written by Simon (co-owner of V8 eSports) and published on NerdBuster without anonymity. It is an account of his relationship with Blight's founder, James "Blackfoger" Larsen and their recent merger endeavor.
About a month ago, my partner talked to me about the opportunity to be absorbed by Blight Gaming. I was running V8 eSports with him and we had a top League of Legends team that went to Intel Extreme Masters in New York and IGN Pro League in Atlantic City, New Jersey. They were a new team and got knocked out but still made $2000 in prize money, just for showing. Anyways, back to the story about Blight. Knowing James "Blackfogger" Larsen's past history in the eSports community I informed my partner that this would turn out to be a very bad deal for us, but that if he really wanted to, we could try and see if it works out. The deal was that we would let blight use our website, and fogger would pay me an amount of money that I would then put into getting some more coding done for the website. Also fogger had to pay for name changes for the LoL team. (We also were told that Steel Series and Thermaltake were sponsoring Blight, which we later found out he actually had no sponsors, which I had figured the entire time.) Fogger agreed, and we started the merge. I told fogger that I needed the money the coming week, and that the money wasn't for me to just make money off him, it was for trust, and in turn I would spend that money right back into the organization. Well that weekend that I had expected my money, I never got it, fogger gave me an excuse saying he had just paid $500 for some sc2 players hotel room. He never gave me a name of which player , or any info about this "sc2 player." Me and my partner continued to ask when we would get the money, and fogger kept saying soon, soon. The next week roles by and I'm thinking I'm for sure getting the money, but I didn't.
Finally, the week after that I received the money that was promised. This was after I told fogger that we were ending the partnership and we were taking everything that we had website, partnership with own3d, enuzi clothing, and our LoL team. I was upset and so was my partner and we told him that he was bullshit and that he just lies and he would keep changing his stories and switching things up that he had just said earlier. For instance, we were supposed to be getting contracts, well he said he had a "lawyer" working on contracts, and we told him why would you get a lawyer to write contracts when the amount of money you owe us is way way less than what a lawyer charges. I told him that it just doesn't make sense. So we basically told him we were out. Me and my partner had a change of heart and decided, give him one last shot a ultimatum. I told him I wanted my money in 2 hours otherwise we were gone. I went to bed and woke up and had received the money. It did come past the 2 hours, but he paid so I figured ok we're fine now. Well it turns out that it wasn't fine at all. A day later I get a messages from foggers partner zack, telling me the truth about Blight Gaming. That it was just a scam and that fogger just tried getting admins to join the org in order to put money into it. Later, Me and my partner asked fogger what happened to zack, and foggers response was, "he's taking a break for a while," which was complete bullshit, because I knew what happened to him, I had just talked to him. Every single story he told us, we found holes to, and when we brought them up, he tried changing the subject, or making it seem like we were just looking for holes and that it was our fault. We asked him about the other stuff that was promised like headsets for the LoL team, and our contracts. He told us that the headsets should be sent soon, when a day before he said they were sent. Then he finally sent the contracts, and after looking at it, me and my partner just lol'ed because there were straight taken from Google and he didn't even bother to make them look semi legit, the date was wrong. We said that he was lieing and that he never got a lawyer to do them, because it was ripped off Google. He tried changing stories and shit but we knew.
Also once he sent those contracts I saw that he had mentioned a LLC. The name of that LLC was Hilda James LLC. So I figured seeing as business info is public domain, I would do a search in the State of Washington's Database. I searched Hilda James LLC and there was 1 result in the system. The business was registered to the address fogger lived at, except the business was in his parents' names Rich and Sue Larsen. I search Blight LLC and Blight Gaming LLC and nothing showed up. So then I knew he was trying to say his business was registered when really all he had was a website and trying to say that it was a company under a company. He said that the business was Blight LLC, but that's not even a registered business in the State of Washington. So then I knew that he is just some loser that still lives with his parents at the age of 23. When I brought this up he said the company was made in his dads name because he was not of age. I said and the name you decided to come up with was Hilda James? I know that, the address of his parents house is also his, because I was given access to his Go daddy account so I could fix the website, and I saw the address he had there, it was the same one. Some other fishy shit he told us when we first met was that he was 23 and retired, I asked him from what and he said ecommerce. Which pretty much means that saying he's retired is a way to not have to say what he really is, which is either on welfare, disability, or both. Or if he's really a loser, he just lives with his parents and mooches off them. We asked him if he was on welfare or disability, he said I could be on disability, we were like wtf? He said yeah I have crohns disease and liver disease, idk but last time I checked those two arnt reasons to collect disability, so I believe he's just scamming the system. This is the short story, there was so much other bullshit, I have almost everything saved in convo's their actually quite hysterical, if anyone wants to read them, I'll probably make them public somewhere. Anyway, V8 eSports is completely separated from that idiot fogger and his illegitimate organization. He was worried about us slandering his name, I told him he already did that to himself. Everyone reading this probably already knows how bullshit he is, this should just solidify the fact that fogger is a cancer to eSports. Thankfully, all we wasted was our time, which sucks, but life goes on. And if fogger ever wants to partner/sponsor your team, seriously just tell him to go fuck himself.
As of November 25th, 2011, Fogger refunded the money that was sent as part of the agreement. The reason for the refund as stated from PayPal "PayPal received a notification from a user regarding unauthorized access to his PayPal account. As a result, one of the payments credited to your PayPal account has been placed in a temporary hold while we investigate the claim." So in other words he made it look like that money was wrongly sent to me, when in reality I have text messages coming from fogger's cell number saying the money was sent 3 minutes after the PayPal transaction took place. I tried explaining my evidence to PayPal but they claimed that text messages cannot be sent as evidence, and since it was payment owed and nothing was actually shipped, they sided with fogger. Ever since we left he has been blasting tweets to numerous organizations trying to talk to them about partnerships, because in reality, as of now he has nothing. He has no website and no teams, so he is desperate. The only reason for this long ass paper is to warn other people of falling in this losers trap.
Further proof of the problems that James has.
Anyways here is the link to the company, under his parents name. And this is not a infringement on anyone's rights, that information is made public for this specific reason, to see if a company is legit or not.
Rumors have been swirling around lately since Cyber Revolution cut 4shot for Flashstep. On the ESEA forums, people have been hinting that the player switch was either because Lloyd thought that 4shot was not holding his weight (pun intended) or because he was a fat kid that didn't listen.
The real reason that Shaffer cut 4shot was because 4shot called Shaffer out for being a wash up and a terrible player after weeks of arguing amongst the team and their league record reflects it. The team stands with a 3/3 record. 4shot had enough of Lloyd talking down to the team and himself. Right after their match against 3dmax, things deteriorated fast and hours upon hours of screaming and bullshit ensued.
This isn't the first time that 4shot was cut. On the way back from DSrack #3, Blight.EVERKI was at an all time moral low. As the team was boarding the flight, lan giraffe told 4shot that he was a "fat fuck and was cut, pz lata kid". Shortly after that the team disbanded.
Jimmy Pike also known as nikoN on the ESEA and CSS Professional community recently asked Chris "mika*" Prescott for a favor. Jimmy approached mika through steam with a malicious request and asked him if he could have his Pakistani teammate shahzam ddos'd. The reason behind this cyber hit request that was put out by nikoN is "so that he cant play any of the matches and we can cut him off our team". Is there some sort of beef going on in JCP between the players? What do the other teammates have to say about this? Does ESEA not care for this? We thought that ESEA had cleaned house of malicious users, but It's apparent and obvious that they have not done so. What did we learn here? You're an Invite player like Jimmy "nikoN" Pike you have immunity from being banned or suspended from ESEA.
P.S nikoN was told to fuck off by mika as ESEA lets mika play under a different name on ESEA.
The ECO Anti-Cheat source code has once again leaked. ECO shut down a while back because they couldn't keep their act together. Now they have been working behind the scenes to try and relaunch the league. This leak surely comes as a set back for the organization.
The code behind this
ground breaking subpar Anti-Cheat client is ridiculous... just like with the last one before the league failed the first time.
The leaked source code is available on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/wjpE7A5P
That's right ladies and gentlemen, the wonderful and loyal Nerd Buster audience does it again. An anonymous source has leaked the original, high quality material that was posted briefly on Youtube by ForbiddeN. This is the material that got the team demoted from ESEA Invite to just a scrim team. We are publishing this video for learning and informational purposes, so that nobody else has to suffer the fate of ForbiddeN.
It is sad that what was seemingly a good time, ended up causing so much grief. Why did only ForbiddeN get kicked out of Invite? Who knows...
Read more in our previous article, "ForbiddeN banned from ESEA for making a Youtube video; entire team kicked out of invite"
The entire ForbiddeN team was banned for 150 days by lpkane after the recent ESEA LAN for posting a Youtube video. That's right, apparently ESEA bans players for activities outside of their own realm. One ESEA premium member got handed a ban for the incident and he did not even play at the LAN event.
So what was in the video that caused all the fuzz?
The video featured an underage kid consuming liquor at a hotel near the ESEA LAN.
The sorry sob who made the video and published it on Youtube was sleeping when his team mates were trying to wake him up and have him take it off the internet, but his phone was on silent and he didn't wake up. ESEA admins saw the video and banned the entire team. The video has since been removed. Not only did the team get banned, they got demoted from Invite to just a scrim team and now they can't play this season. The kid made an apology video on Youtube, but it didn't help and he took that down as well.
Granted ESEA is just showing that they do not condone underage drinking by banning the players for posting the Youtube video, but it sure seems like an excuse to extend authority and stroke that e-peenor. This is very similar to the case where the owner of Nerd Buster was banned for five years from ESEA just for owning a website that published articles that criticized ESEA's conduct.
Anyone gonna call the police and sue somebody for giving alcohol to minors?
Team Dynamic had won 1st place at the ESEA LAN for five consecutive seasons, but this time they were sent home with silver. Fully Torqued brought on the heat and snatched the championship title. You know that some jaws dropped within Dynamic's ranks as they lost bragging rights to Fully Torqued.
"ryan and frozt have taken down dynamic twice on lan now. this time they cant blame volcano for the loss (as if having one of the BEST riflers in the world on your team is a valid excuse in the first place). raped!" - CHewbacca1
The final LAN standings and prizes:
- Fully Torqued ($6,500)
- Team Dynamic ($3,100)
- Check-Six ($1,400)
- ForbiddeN ($1,000)
Last night, High Rollers Gaming duked it out with Mild in the ESEA-Main upper bracket playoff round 4. This was the first high profile match to take place since the new CS: Source update that changed some basic dynamics of the game. Fortunately the update did not render competitive play impossible and the match was played out without problems. It was an intense match with rounds going back and forth, but the match was ultimately decided by the pistol rounds. HRG took it home with 16 to 13.
Mild got sent to the lower bracket and is now waiting for the lower bracket round 5 to finish and determine their next opponent. Mild will face either OK2STRONG or Frag Machines in the Semi Final. Mild may have been beaten once by HRG, but if they win the Semi Final, they will have a chance to come back and get revenge on HRG in the final championship round.
OK2STRONG and Frag Machines are scheduled to play on Friday 23.
Who will win ESEA-Main Season 9 Playoffs?
- High Rollers Gaming (55%, 46 Votes)
- Frag Machines (19%, 16 Votes)
- OK2STRONG (13%, 11 Votes)
- Mild (13%, 10 Votes)
Total Voters: 83
Not sure what this babygrl fuzz is about? Read our previous post about the whole matter: "Wednesday Focus: Babygrl & E-Dating"
Nerds engaged in heated flame/rage wars in the comments of our previous post and things were said that were contradictory and simply rofl-icious, so we are now posting the following audio recording of Babygrl and some of her male buddies.
Oh... and feast your eyes on the following pics that Babygrl has sent to her e-companions.
Alloutservers.net went down on August 26, 2011. The "company" did not make any sort of press release nor notify clients and/or partners that they were folding up shop. It has been weeks and nobody has heard any word of anyone getting even a partial refund. If you had paid in advance, you're really getting shafted for your money.
These guys were in business for about two years, but they never did have the greatest reputation as a game server provider. They had a small hard-core following, but Alloutservers was never a serious competitor to bigger operations like Nuclearfallout and End of Reality... not to even mention Gameservers.com
Alloutservers is a perfect example of what happens when a group of young nerds get together and decide to "start a business." Unfortunately, here in the US, anyone can start a business and they don't even have to file any paperwork. Any chump can start a sole-proprietorship and go about fooling suckers to giving up their money. Don't get gamed!
Are you raged? Start sending angry customer rage mail to the following email addresses:
You can also try your luck by visiting the Alloutservers steam group page. You can try to hunt down the sucker, Jason Murray, who owned Alloutservers. For legal reasons we can't publish his assumed address and phone number, but you can find them by viewing the whois record for the company domain name over at DomainTools.
In case some of the noobs haven't heard, ESEA is planning to host a $100,000 LAN tournament next summer. The LAN will be a celebration of reaching 20,000 premium members. ESEA has revamped their referral and signup systems to make it easier for existing users to refer new ones and get points for doing so. Those who refer the most new users to ESEA that sign up for premium will be eligible to win cool prizes.
You can read more about the announcement on the ESEA website. Also, lpkane knows that he is a dick and won't be changing his ways anytime soon.
"esea would die if i suddenly became cuddly" - lpkane
One would've thought that most of the craziest drama and bullshit took place in Source's glory days when CAL was alive and everybody was out and rocking it, but that is not quite the case. If you have been following the Nerd Buster articles, there is plenty of drama to report on. In fact, today's shining star has been previously featured on Nerd Buster along with some nude pics, but those have since been removed to keep out advertisers and partners happy. (Damn conformists!)
Babygrl is a supposedly 22 year old gamer girl. She has recently been haunted by nude pictures of her that were leaked by an ex-online-boyfriend. That is actually what today's focus is about: online relationships.
To cut to the chase, Babygrl seems to have serious daddy issues and as a result she has a tendency to form imaginary, yet intimate bonds with men on the internet. She has actually "e-dated" the following players that you might recognize.
As you can see, Babygrl has been with some pretty decent gamers! She actually claims to be quite the hot stuff her self when it comes to video games. She prides herself with a seven year source career and claims to have been the leader of several teams, but her ESEA stats don't quite measure up. (This is a common phenomena in the eSports community, lol)
Let's dig in on babygrl's relationships.
First, she actually flew to Dallas to meet AGR. LOL! Prior to the LAN, the fact that Babygrl and AGR were dating had surfaced on the wave bands. An anonymous gamer who frequently played scrims with AGR found out about the relationship and was baffled because he had caught AGR flirting with another girl, Nikki, on a regular, but he decided to keep his mouth shut because he didn't know the whole story. The ESEA LAN rolled about and Babygrl met up with AGR. As rumor has it, legs were spread and it was a private party for invite-status cockadoodledoo. Their relationship soon ended. Why? An anonymous tipster gives us an explanation that supposedly came out of Babygrl's mouth.
She mentioned to me that he didnt know how to fuck and that she had to hold his shirt up because he wouldnt take it off (hes chubby).
Anger (AGR) is quite the player. You can read up on him in a recent Nerd Buster post titled: Todd Williams (Anger) from Dynamic is an Addict and Scumbag
AGR and Babygrl were done. About a week later after breaking up with AGR, Babygrl's alias on STEAM changed to "babygrl <3 Lionman". AGR's horrible lover skills were so frightening to her that they threw Babygrl right in to Lionman's roided out arm. The two were madly in love and were actually planning for Lionman to move to the sunshine state so that they could be closer. Talk about rushing in to a relationship? The two enjoyed a loving relationship for about five weeks. During that time, the infamous "babygrl's tits" photo leak happened on ESEA forums by Babygrl's (assumed) first e-boyfriend, Sunnyboy and his friends. It was probably the stress caused by the photo incident that led to the demise of the perfect couple. The story that Babygrl gave out, which was very detailed and scripted, was that Lionman who seemed like a sweetheart turned out to be a lying psycho. She said that Lionman was stalking her through numerous ESEA and STEAM accounts. Supposedly he was also abusing her Skype account and phone number, which actually led Babygrl to change her phone number, email accounts, and decided as a last ditch effort to go underground and delete her STEAM profile, ESEA profile, and Facebook account in hopes that disappearing for a while would both clear her name as an "e-slut" and also make the crazy roid monkey go away.
Recently (8 days ago), the anonymous source that is/was friends with Babygrl says that after the girl went in to hiding, he messaged her on her new ESEA account asking where she was and what she was up to. She told him what had happened and how she had deleted all her accounts, etc. She gave him her phone number and said that he could text her anytime to get in touch with her. The source told her that he could not message her because he lived in Canada, so the two decided to just hop in vent instead. They talked and it turned out that Babygrl was going to come back to gaming, but that she wanted to keep it on the down low in order to dodge all the bullshit and that there were only a handful of people that she could trust with her secrets. Being the chivalrous knight that the source was, he offered to be one of the trusted guardians of her secrets... and so he was let in.
In order to move this along more smoothly, let's call our anonymous source, SRC.
SRC and Babygrl hit it off. They talked about each other's troubles, plans, and gaming. Babygrl revealed that she was in fact quite rich. She had received a 10 million dollar inheritance. Supposedly she lived in a mansion in Tampa, Florida and enjoyed five top notch sports cars in her garage including a Corvette. She of course claimed to have a beast of a gaming rig from Alienware as well. SRC bit down on the story of Babygrl and played along... he thought that considering Babygrl's reputation, he might actually be able to score some (giggity). In reality Babygrl isn't rich at all. She lives in an apartment with her room mate, definitely doesn't have five cars, and her gaming rig isn't that beast (See the picture of the specs).
At first Babygrl told SRC that she "digged him." Within two days, it had gone from that to "in love with you." The daddy issues effect was kicking in again. Falling madly in love with the first male that seems to care about her. In reality, SRC couldn't give two shits anymore at this point, but she didn't know that. Babygrl made a steam group dedicated to their relationship with a cute little tag and soon they were having e-dates by watching movies online together. Within a week Babygrl was planning SRC's trip to Tampa for him.
"she moved fast as fuck" - SRC
During their time together, Babygrl told SRC about her previous relationships, including that with AGR. She actually shined some light on Team Dynamic and what's going on behind the scenes. Supposedly LGD doesn't like PEX and that he has been banging PEX's girl friend for months. LGD had been planning on telling PEX all about it after he quit competitive gaming... but let's not go off on a tangent.
According to SRC, Babygrl had a tendency to remind him daily of how hot she was. This clearly displays a deep rooted need for attention and for someone to "want" her (unlike daddy?). The following email chain shows her need for attention.
Imperium Gaming League (IGL) shut down their website last month and put up a splash page saying that they are re-branding their service and will be relaunching. Along with rebuilding their anti-cheat system and website, they are changing the name to International Gaming League. Yeah, that is better than Imperium (Definition: supreme power, empire).
This is their official statement on their splash page:
"Since January 2011's BETA launch, IGL has been able to identify a good amount of needs and wants from the community thanks to experience, trial and error and most importantly, community feedback. With this baggage, IGL administration has been able to pinpoint its priorities so that IGL may launch its official, final product, International Gaming League." - playigl.com
Those of you who followed or even participated in IGL, you may have noticed that their previous website did actually not advertise the service being a BETA that would soon shut down and be completely rebuilt. That lie was conjured up after the fact once the administration realized their failures and inferior website and it's inability to scale.
That being said, they are now trying to play cute on their developer blog and are releasing their new logo in little fragments as if someone is going to check back daily for a new logo for a failed league. Just lay low and come back with something worth the community's time or just stay dead. k, thx.
