The Retirement of Kingfunks4

Kingfunks4, Former CPAC Head and ACP Leader, has retired as of about five minutes ago. While Funks was one of the most controversial of his generation, he was a great friend, mentor, and, for one reason or another, will be greatly remembered by this community. At the end of last year, Funks was named the 2nd Most Influential Person of the 2012 year, second only to Waterkid100, his greatest rival. Funks’s retirement post is below. From myself, and all of us here at CPAC, here’s to you, Funks. You will be missed.

This is what many of you wish, it is earlier than planned and not how I would have liked to end but I cannot stand the abuse and hate from troops within and outside of the army. For those who have supported “DWF”, you should all be ashamed. Granted, most of that was from outside the army but that does not make it any better. You should treat every person with respect and you should treat them how you would want to be treated. Yes, I’ve made one or two mistakes in my leadership but how would you like it if most of the people you saw on this online game were against you. Something you have been in for three years and you are basically forced out by the community. There are many people who have lost my respect. I know that I have lost a lot of other peoples respect, but that does not make you any better. I may have lied to my own troops, but I did it for the good of the army and all of my decisions have been for the good of the army. It may not have helped the army, but the intention was always good and it was to help us. All of you who hate me for little reason, I hope you are happy.

I will talk about my exit at the end and how the actions of other armies are beyond ridiculous. I joined the ACP, my first army, on the date of February 10th 2010. I did not find ACP on Mammoth or Breeze and was infact chat recruited by Floppy/Jake. Many of you will probably not know him, but he was a great guy. Just a few days into my story in CP armies and Shab and taken over from Dry and Saint. Then, ten days into my leadership, the puffle party inspired my to create the Puffle Warriors. This army was my favorite army to lead, far exceeding the experience of leading the ACP. After four days of thinking about it, the army was finally open and we did not know what was going to happen or how it would do. This brings me onto the tale of the Puffle Warriors.

They were created on the 24th of February, 2010 and we started of with small sizes. We were near the bottom of the small army top ten on SMAC (at the time, SMAC had a small and medium top ten).

At the time, this army basically had little potential and we didn’t think it would get as far as it did. In the first generation, we did hit the medium top ten but we didn’t get too far. Eventually, we merged into an army called Team Red, which was basically a copy of Team Gold. This was not a popular decision, but I knew if the army agreed we could reach the top ten or medium top ten. They didn’t and eventually Floppy recreated the PW. I still loved the army and asked to return. I was only given the rank of 2ic and this is when tensions rose. As the creator, I was an admin on the site and couped Floppy. I then made a loyal PW soldier, JJ, leader with me. Over the 2nd and 3rd generation there was basically a power struggle over who should be leader. Eventually, we all talked on my chat xat.com/cptvf and agreed that we would all be leader. It was the only thing that would work in this situation and we created a good leadership. A few generations occured that were not worthy of mention but I think it was the 6th or 7th generation that was the best.

We reached the top ten, maxing around 20-25 and firstly got 9th. Many believed that we would fall straight back down but we maxed 25+ with perfect tactics and hit 8th on the top ten the following week.

This was great for us, but we quickly fell to 13th and eventually we ended the generation. This was basically the best generation of the PW, we reached 12th or 13th in the 10th generation but most were not focused and mainly didn’t last long. We lasted for two years, often dominating the SMAC medium top ten. The best point was when we formed an alliance with the Purple Heads, who were also dominating the medium top ten.

We also won a CPAE tournament, in a four way final beating some strong medium armies including the Purple Heads. However, the main highlight was when faced the Roman Fire Warriors in the CPAC Legend Cup. This was the original Legends Cup. This was not when we hit our best sizes and we did not win, but this was one of our best events in our history at the time as we maxed 15-20. One of my favorite pics has been lost, when we did an awesome E+H tactic. The best thing about the PW is that we were a family. We were like no other armies. Most of our troops were only in the Puffle Warriors and there were very rarely arguments  It was the total opposite of leading the ACP.

Then, from arguably my favorite section of CP armies to another. CPAC has often been my home and I loved working at CPAC. CPAC didn’t come without controversy, such as blocking the Light Troops from CPAC. I suppose I had my reasons as the images were very offensive and some law breaking (Ok, maybe a bit too far but they weren’t good) but I do regret doing what I did to the LT. Some people say I was a rubbish CPAC head, but most people agreed that I was better at CPAC than I was at the ACP. I think my reporting posts were good, with more than enough detail. My top tens were OK, people said they were a bit biased and maybe they were, I don’t know. I just know that my top tens were always on time and I was never inactive at CPAC. I loved working with Blue2 and have always preferred him over Blue1. The problem with Blue1 is that he seems power hungry. I liked him as a Secondary Head but his reign at CPAC seems like an attempt to gain reputation through the media and I often see a lack of posts and bad top tens. Sorry if that was offensive, but I tried to be constructive with you and you were often none responsive. Apart from the Blue brothers, I spent longer than all of the CPAC staff members at CPAC and was head of site for about a year, being a reporter/head reporter/secondary head for a lot longer prior to this. Overall, it must have been about two years at CPAC.

With that being said, I apologize to the Blue brothers for my attitude to CPAC in the last month or so but have generally been annoyed at CPAC’s attempt to get at ACP. For example, a lot of other armies have made worse mistakes than the ACP did this week and it was not even reported on. For example, some armies have been the center of Ddosing and hacking which is a lot worse than lying. Did CPAC and the army community condemn them when it happened? Why is everything the ACP done blown out of proportion? I know what we did was bad, but this is what I have seen from CP armies.

There are other armies I have led other than the Puffle Warriors. These include the AR, DCP, Pretzels, WV, UMA, EK, TR, CPST, Tacos and probably others that I can’t remember. I also had other owner ranks in armies such as SWAT. I got ‘legend’ in WV and Pretzels and am proud of that. I love the WV and Pretzels and led the Pretzels near the start and have always been with them. I also remember the Sun Troops (CPST) who I got to the top five with Wenny and Boofgal. It was a great leadership team and we never argued. But then, there is the story of the ACP. My story in the ACP from the high to the low. The extreme lows, in some cases.

As I have already said, I joined the ACP (my first army) on the date of February 10th 2010 and have not quit sice. I have been in the army for over three years and have always stuck with it. I even quit CPAC in the end for ACP 2ic. The ACP was always at my heart and I stuck with every single leader. I was also loyal to the leader, understanding how hard it must be and I stayed loyal to them and never created a fuss. I got moderator in just over a years time and it was a great feeling. I can’t remember much as an ACP moderator, except the fact that I was pretty active, but still didn’t fight for the ACP in CPAC tournaments because of the fact I was CPAC head. When I got 3ic, there were concerns about why I got it and some people said I was only 3ic because of my influence with CPAC. I ignored them and Ken/Flipper, the leaders at the time, reassured me that I was going to do fine. I guess my favorite time at ACP was when I was 2ic and 3ic, as I could lead but I didn’t have to make the crucial decisions.

Then, the roller coaster really did get high and low. I got leader on the date of July 31st when Mchappy retired earlier than planned. Looking back, Mchappy and I agree with each other that he probably retired too early and it didn’t help my situation but that is what happened. I was really active and eager to lead in the first week, as anyone probably would be, but I soon fell ill and was away for just under a week. That would have probably been OK, but this was followed by my anual two week holiday and that was just too much. I was away from the army for 2-3 weeks and Boomer had no choice but to coup me. The ACP needed a strong leader and, although I was very annoyed at first saying “I don’t want your cruddy Co-Leader rank” to Ek, I took the Head General spot. I enjoyed that rank under Ek, as I didn’t have to do the major decisions but could post and lead. I was that rank for a month or two and then Ek retired. I knew it was time to try and redeem myself.

I was promoted with Ant to the leader position and we created the “Fanta” leadership. This didn’t get anywhere, in truth. Ant didn’t last very long either and lasted about 1 month and a bit. The day after Ant retired, we maxed 40 on CP. Ant did had an effect on this size and we were slowly building something.

This was the highlight of Fanta, even though Ant had already retired. I am still not sure if Ant was actually ill, but I am probably swaying to the not ill due to the fact he left and joined AR only a few days later after saying he couldn’t be in armies for months. After saying Ant couldn’t get leader back, he left us for the Army Republic. The army in which he is still at. Then, after a few weeks of leading by my own, people demanded that someone was made the US leader of the ACP. I picked Swimmer and then things started to happen. The rise started to begin a week into the leadership. In the second week, we had 35+, followed by 40+ and then two weeks of 45+. Here are pics from each event:

If you are wondering why I am posting these pictures, it is because I want to remember the good times. You can see why I wanted to get out of this war with the Nachos. These times came when we were not in war, while our recent times of depression came when we were in wars. We wanted to get out of the war to be in the good times and the Nachos were and are being unreasonable. My time in the ACP ended in a controversial lie and I regret it. I regret EVERYTHING that we did in this past week and I wish we didn’t do it. I guess I was going to retire soon anyway, but I didn’t want to leave in this way. The ACP, I found out, was full of many troops trying to get what they wanted when sometimes it wasn’t the best for the army and there was often divisions. In most other armies, people realize they have to be in it together to rise but that is oblivious to some. I also get annoyed at many retired people who complain at everything. This is my ACP story, a story that I enjoyed a lot of the time but hated sometimes. If I hate times as leader, why would I stay in something that is supposed to be fun?

Now that I have done my long list of armies and organisations I have been in, I will now do my long list of people who I would like to thank. For without these people I would either not have got the position I wanted or have enjoyed it. I thank those people who have assisted me. If you haven’t noticed, they are split into the armies/organisations I was in.

Floppy/Jake – You have always been in my memory of CP armies and will never leave that. You recruited my from Heatblast’s chat and we were in the PW together for a long time. Without you, I wouldn’t have got any of the achievements that I did get. I miss the recent times when you are hardly on and I hope you see this because you were the greatest of friends.

 photo oo-1.png

Blossom – I know you wont see this, like many people listed on this, but I had to put you in it because you were just awesome. You were never the best CP army leader, but you were a great friend to everyone in the army and kept us glued together. You were fantastic (remember our little romance? ;) )

JJ – Now this is a person and character I haven’t seen in years. We were like brothers in the PW and it was great to talk to you. We had some good ol’ British talk, but we had to let Floppy into the convosation :( . Haha, only joking, but you were great. Miss you lots.

—————————————————————————

Braveboy – The Pretzels were a great army and it’s a shame that you couldn’t find a way to keep them in the top ten without you actually being fully involved. The truth is that they are too dependent on you, but that shows that you are a great leader and an awesome friend.

Chillie – I guess I could have put you under the PW section, because you were there for a while, but you were linked with Pretzels more recently and I hope you do well there. You are a good leader and poster.

Disco70s – Again, I could have put you as a PW because you came looking for a medium army and made a big difference and helped us get into the top ten. However, your Pretzels achievements are amazing and you played a HUGE part in their success.

—————————————————————————

Zakdude – Thanks for giving me a chance to lead the WV and I am flattered that you gave me Water Vikings legend. I am annoyed you didn’t stay active in ACP, but I guess that’s your choice and I thank you in helping me in some of the armies that I led.

Bepboy – You are a good leader of the WV and are one of the few people who are dedicated to one army. You are also a good reporter at SMAC and, although you were against my army sometimes, you were always positive towards me.

—————————————————————————

Bluesockwa2 – You were amazing and I glad we took this high-profile job on together. I loved your posts and we worked together as a team through thick and thin. I always looked up to you and asked for help whenever I needed something I didn’t understand. You joined armies before I did, so I knew who to ask when I needed some advise.

Iasage – I cannot thank you enough for making me part of the contributor program and then seeing something in me to make me a reporter. You are an amazing person and you are another person I went to for advice, even though you don’t come on very often.

Bluesockwa – Whenever people said “Blue only got secondary head because of his brother” I defended you because you are an amazing reporter and I can see the family relation. I know you can post well, but your attitude has changed my opinion on you. You need to tone it down and just do a good job of CPAC. I liked you before, remember that.

Woton – Woton, Woton, Woton… How can I sum you up in one paragraph? You are a true legend in CP Armies and you taught me how to be a good (I hope I was good…) CPAC Head. I’m glad you are around to see this because I want you to know that I was not upset at you becoming head of site before I did at my first chance. You were the one person I missed the most after their retirement.

Sklooperis – How I miss you after your retirement. You were really funny and entertaining in PC and every day I wish you and Woton came back. You were epic and I thank-you for making me wait for CPAC Head of Site. You are truly a legend and you should have made the legends list. I also thank you for you coming back to help us out.

 photo SkloopsProblems.png Shaboomboom – I hired you when I was a secondary head under Woton and I never regretted that moment. You are the best philosopher to ever join armies and you are one of my best friends. We weren’t friends until you joined CPAC and I’m glad our friendship tightened as time went on. Sometimes you were a handful, but it was such an amazing handful that I loved it.

Nathancool – We were friends before CPAC, remember the PW/CPU vs NP War? You were Head Reporter when I was a Reporter and I felt guilty after taking your position. I tried to get you back into CPAC because I knew you had some sort of talent in writing but you didn’t stay active. I saw you the other day, so hopefully you see this.

Tomato – I didn’t know you for long and we weren’t best friends but you are a cool person and a good, active writer. I could see you being a Head of Site on day because you are great at writing posts and you get the job that needs to be done, done.

*Some of this was copied from my CPAC retirement post

—————————————————————————

Ek – Kingek forever! You are my best friend within the ACP of all time and it was great when we were both a high rank and leading the army together, even though we weren’t both leaders. I have so many pictures to include about you because you were awesome. It’s a shame we can’t speak much now, Kingek was epic.

Kenneth –  Before you became a traitor you were funny, epic and amazing. Your leadership quality was the best within my ownership and you had something that most people didn’t have. I liked our talks about the Commonwealth and you were awesome. It’s a shame you left us for the enemy…

Swimmer – I am sorry if I am putting you in an awquad situation but you can always come to me for advise on anything. Swunks will still live in the memory. I know you can get us to what we had before this 2nd dip. You can get us back to the 45+ we were getting only a few weeks ago. Sorry for anything I said to you.

Antant – We led together in the “Fanta” leadership and it is a shame you left when you did because I think we were starting something great. The day after you left we had 40 and this showed me that the leadership was finally starting to work. In truth, I don’t think you were ill but I cannot judge fully because I don’t know you. Good luck in the AR.

Foldez – Your negativity is like, high, but I know you will be a future leader in the ACP. I’m not sure if you’re ready right now, so don’t be disheartened if a USA person gets leader ahead of you with Swimmer. At CPAC, woton got head before me and this helped me become a better head. Just work on backing the owners and being positive and you’ll be good. Also post more, haha. Thanks for the good old South West convosations.

Flipper – You were a great leader and you have probably noticed I idiolise the style of leadership and failed at doing so. I don’t know how you did it, but you were amazing and you are one of my favorite leaders that I’ve served under. I’m slightly annoyed at the amount of moaning you do nowadays, however, but I remember what you did as a leader and forget that.

Tori – Some people say you need to be a stronger owner and I agree to a certain extent. You are great and perfect in the aspect of turning up to lead the events and dont seem to miss any. Things to work on could be things such as not surrendering as much and posting non-event results. Thank you for sticking with me and I hope you do well in the ACP.

Capncook – I guess I have forgiven you for trying to coup me the last time, but I can see now have much of a difference you will make to the ACP ownership. You do the little things well and will help the ACP massively  Please advise Swimmer and make sure the ACP does not do something stupid again, you are the brains and I know you can do it.

Fluffyboy – I told you that you had the potential to become an ACP owner and you have achieved that. We had a good time in PW and Pretzels as well and you seemed to follow me around ;) . Keep going in the ACP and aim for leader, I know you can get it because you have mass potential.

Slime – You are so friendly and have the biggest heart I have seen within the army. You care for everyone and seem to have a positive relationship with all of the ACP troops. You are active and could maybe post a bit more, but your leading skills have improved and you are young. You will get leader if you stick at it because of your age.

Superoo – You have already said some strong words to me and I thank you, I thank you for the belief in me and what you have said to me yesterday. You waited for 3ic, a longer time than most people would have waited for and that shows your loyalty to the ACP. Stay with it.

Boomer – Thank you for the advise that you gave me and I really should’ve asked you about this fake coup because I now know you would have probably said that it was a bad idea. You steered me when I needed it and I am sorry if I bugged you too much, but I needed a guide and you are the best.

Mchappy – I appreciate your decision to make me the ACP leader, but we both know that it was too early and the timing was probably the worse that it could have been. It is not your fault and you know that you are one of the best leaders CP armies has ever seen.

Snaily – I know you think that you are hated in the ACP, but you really aren’t. The people in the ACP love you and you were a great owner. Your posts were amazing and you linked with the troops amazingly. You also created many ideas for us to use and led when you could. I missed you from the ACP.

Change, Maxy, Nnpingwin – I see you as my European Helpers and you were very helpful when trying to win UK battles. You were all also good fun to talk to and were great to hang around with. I hope you all do well in the ACP and I thank you for helping me so well.

Twingy – I’m not sure if we were in the ACP at the same time? We probably were but I don’t have memories of that. You gave great advise and I always trusted you to help me in making a decision. I guess you told us not to do the fatal thing we did this month and I should have listened to you. You are the words of wisdom and should have accepted ACP owner.

—————————————————————————

Ladtom – I will still advise CPAE for you, but certainly will not take a head or secondary head role. I hope you do well in CPAE and I think you should rejoin the ACP. Take that as a personal favour? However, you are impossible to beat at Find 4 and I find myself facedesking when you beat me for the 100th time in a row. United forever!

Ace Fireken – You used to be really friendly, but now I dislike you. I know what you are driven by, you are driven by hate towards whoever you are fighting. You do not seem to care for the PERSON you are talking to but the ARMY they are in. I used to find you great, but now…

Waterkid – You are an interesting person, a dictator and evil person at times, but a great leader and without you the Pirates would not be a strong army. It’s annoying that you beat me to Person of the Year, but I guess you deserve it for the amount of controvosy you caused.

I am sorry if I missed you out, but as you can see I was trying to remember a lot of people and I wanted to note down everyone who helped me in CP armies or who was a good friend. I tried to remember all of you and if you were left out, that does not mean you were not significant. Everyone who made the little push for me was significant and I like you all. It is a shame that was ruined by the people who have no heart and have no feelings for other people. I also point out that the Nachos do not decide who leads other armies, as I never really did anything wrong to them and they came with antagonism to get rid of me with this war.

My story did not come without controversy. In both CPAC and ACP, things happened that I regretted and I wished I could go back and change what I did in some times. I know that is not possible, and apologize to anyone I have effected or disappointed in what I have done. I hope the ACP UK force continues to stay strong, while we build a great USA force. I hope, with my quit, that this is possible and that I will not be the restraint in the return of the ACP. I ask the HSA and Nachos to spare the army for my mistakes and that I should not be the reason for you to harm this army. Here is a quote that I would aspire to:

The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can’t be done.

-C.V. White

This quote means that, to gain success, you must not try your best to gain attention but to do it in quiet. However, it says how it takes a lot effort and bravery and a person who succeeds has both. It also says how you need to take a chance to succeed, but some people fail and that is the risk that people have to take to get success. It also says how that person must expect to be criticized, something that happened to me a lot. Success can be achieved if you put your mind to it and that is what I tried.

There was the bad points of my career, which are really coming out and being summarized in this post. However, then there are the funny parts of CP armies that I loved. For example, there was the classic Lord Pain who I once had to constantly fight off for the ACP.

 photo AA2-3_zps7c41eeff.png

I had a lot of good times with Lord Pain and I’m glad he isn’t interested in trying to kill the ACP anymore, because he didn’t really provide a valid reason for doing so. At least Pain made things fun, by acting like he was the God. There was also some classic moments from Water, who was another ironic and funny character at times.

 photo lol-1.png

The classic Pirates vs ACP wars of 2012 went on for a while. Although the Pirates claimed they won in the end, this was only because they formed this huge alliance as they couldn’t beat us by themselves. Overall, the Pirates surrendered more than the ACP did overall and lost more individual wars. I see that one surrender as a surrender of one in many, with the majority of the surrenders coming from the Pirates. Most of the time, these wars were very competitive and a good challenge with us not being crushed at USA times. Although the Pirates lost, I thank them for the good challenge.

One of my last acts as leader is to award the bi-monthly Bronze Medal Award to Superoo for his inside operation of the Nachos and for providing crucial information during and out of the battle on the Nachos. Congratulations to Superoo.

I leave with the Nachos and HSA after the ACP, but I ask them with my whole heart to leave the army alone as I have left which is surely what they wanted. The Nachos shouldn’t even be involved in who is leader of another army, unless they are some sort of evil dictator and we all know that this is a power hungry act from the Nachos.  You have made your point, you can beat and are bigger than an army 5th on the top ten. There is no need to go any further than you have already gone.

Now that that is done, I will now list my main accomplishments:

  • CPAC Head [About 1 year]
  • ACP Leader (2) [Nearly 6 months]
  • 271 ACP posts
  • WV Leader/Legend
  • Pretzels Leader (3)/Legend
  • PW Creator
  • Person of the Year Runner-Up 2012
  • CPAC Best Staff Member 2011-12 [Summer Awards]
  • Best Army News Head 2011-12 [Summer Awards]
  • Lead CPST to the top 5
  • AR Leader
  • CPAE Head

They are my notable accomplishments and I am happy with all of those listed and what I have done in them. I thank everyone, who has probably already been listed, who gave me the chance to get these accomplishments and hopefully I made them happy with what I did. I leave with many memories, many many friends to remember and an experience which will help me in life to an extent. My english (believe it or not) has improved with CP armies due to my work at CPAC and could that help me in a future of reporting? Possibly this will help with being stronger and making decisions without fear knowing that it could be the best for what is going to happen in the future.

Remember, the key from this is to treat others how YOU would want to be treated. Would you want to be attacked by everyone, including people who once liked you? No, I think not. This leads to the point that you shouldn’t do it to other people, because you wouldn’t like it yourself. Before this moment, I created a bunch of lies with a few others and, although this was wrong, it was create to try and save the ACP. We wanted to get back to what Swunks was at before, nearly hitting 50 and near the top of the top ten. I knew we had to get out of the war, but I guess I just made things worse.

Like I say about the treating others how you would want to be treated another sentence would be that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. I appreciate that some of you will like my retirement, but I ask that you leave that out of the comments and if you don’t have anything nice to say please don’t say anything because it isn’t nice.

As this is the last paragraph of my retirement post, I say that I might come back to another army or the ACP during the summer for a certain amount of time but I am not sure right now. I just know that I need to focus on my Year 10 exams and also take a break from this chaotic community. I leave knowing that there are some very bad people in CP armies, who are out to harm people. These people know who they are and this includes Ddosers, ‘hackers’, haters and power hungry armies who invade smaller armies. This was meant to be a fun place to be, but many people have turned into a stressful place that is sometimes is a very harsh place to be a part of. I thank you for my time in the ACP.

“If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you have to have a touch of iron about you.” -Margaret Thatcher “Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.” -Margaret Thatcher

  4. Funks;

    Well, this is hard for me. As you probably imagined, I have alot of great memories of you and alot of bad ones. I guess it’s best to start from the beginning.

    I joined CPAC in August of 2011, under you and Blue2. I remember you questioning my appointment to Head Reporter only two weeks into my time at CPAC, and always felt that you were the one I had to impress. Just like me now, you were the public face of CPAC, while Blue2 worked in the background — we just do the same job in very different ways. But after you and Blue2 promoted me to Secondary Head, you convinced me many times to stay at CPAC when I felt that it was no longer the place for me. So, really, you have yourself to blame for all the problems I’ve caused you during your time as ACP Leader.

    Nah, but it was all in good fun. You left CPAC for ACP about six months back, leaving me to be appointed Head soon after. I remember first being taught the Top Ten system by you, and all of the advice I came to you for. While we did speak about CPAC alot, we had very different styles of running it. You may think I’m a bad Head, and I respect that. This is simply my way, and, honestly, I think it’s not something we should be discussing come your retirement, so I’m going to leave this topic at this point.

    You may not be a “Legend” as you had hoped, but you are truly one of the most influential people in our era. One of the most controversial people of your time, you barrelled through all of the hate, and pulled off some nice sizes now and again. Truly, I never wanted to hate you. Our friendship was always based on whether or not I had been “biased” in last week’s Top Ten, which made it hard to stay close friends with you. However, I really do respect you and think you’re a funny and pretty cool guy. I don’t think I always took into account, when we had the fights we did in the past month or so, all of the stress you had been under. Honestly, I think you wouldn’t be retiring at this point if you had relaxed a little more. I had been told about how you believed I would retire from CPAC soon enough because of all the stress — but honestly, I don’t feel stressed. I think alot of the problems that happened, you caused yourself. You were always too hard on yourself, where there truly were many people who loved and respected you.

    It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but nevertheless you were a large part of my journey, and I think I was a pretty big part of yours. I guess I like to give advice at the end of all my “goodbye” comments — even though I’m pretty sure you’ll hang around — but here we go. You know, you’ve gone down as a really hated person, and probably didn’t deserve about 75% of that hate. I guess the point is that alot of people were jealous of where you were and what you have accomplished. You have held two of the most powerful positions in this community. Anyways, I apologize for what’s happened. I’m sure we’ll find it much easier to be nice to each other in the days to come. For one last time, here’s to you. That just like you never gave up when you led ACP, that you will never give up in the real world, and that you will succeed wherever you go in life. Good luck bro.

  5. I didn’t see this coming, first the ACP conflict, and now days after, this?

    Well anyways, I give you a props to everything that you have done for the ACP, especially getting them back into the Top 3 occasionally, which hasn’t been happening lots before you returned to leadership, it’s something you should be very proud of.

    You were a one-of-a-kind leader, and also a one-of-a-kind individual who deserves some respect from whoever comments on this post.

    Good luck in life funks, enjoy joining retirement island 🙂

  6. It’s so difficult to sum up what I think of you, so I’ll keep pondering that for some future date when the curtain falls on my time.

    Until then, good luck in life, and it’s been a pleasure, working and fighting you, helping and hindering you, liking and hating you, over these past years.

    Goodbye Funks, Good Luck, and Godspeed.

  10. I miss you on CPAC. You were great there, and a great leader in PW. You didn’t do bad in ACP, I think you did the best you could. I thank you for the good luck in PCP, as I accomplished an army goal there. While I’m not sure that I’m going to be in armies or not, I thank you for helping me. Thanks, Funks.

  12. While we did not know each other a whole lot, you were an important part of my army career. I still remember that day back in September 2011 when I decided to apply for CPAC. Because of you and Blue2, I was able to work at this fine site, and it has been of of the most enjoyable parts of everything I’ve done since I set foot in this army community.
    I remember occasionally when I would think about moving up in the ranks of CPAC, and I knew that one of the ways it would happen would be when you retired. While it didn’t seem like it would be a big deal back then, it was a shame when you retired. It was a pleasure to work under you at CPAC. And while you can see that I’m not much closer to head than I was before despite my 19 and a half months working here, I’m not going to give up and I hope that you’ll see me become head one day. I still remember when you first told me that you could see me becoming head some day, and I hope I can make you proud.
    Leading an army is a tough task, especially when that army gets a lot of criticism. I’m amazed that you were able to pull through as ACP leader despite the many tough tasks that you constantly had to complete. You were probably under stress a lot as ACP leader. No matter what others say, I still think that you were a great leader. I feel bad for you because of everything you had to go through, and I’m sorry your leadership had to end like this.
    It if it weren’t for our timezone differences, maybe I could have gotten to know you better. I hope I can see you around on chat sometime, and maybe we’ll learn more about each other.
    Overall, you’ve accomplished a lot in the army community and you should feel proud. It was a pleasure knowing you, and I wish you good luck with everything.

  15. Well Funks, it’s pity that you’ve got to retire now, but oh well, best of luck in the future. There are many things I’d like to thank you for, though we barely talked to each other, but:

    1. I wouldn’t be able to stand against Waterkid
    2. Or become a little confident when it comes to beating up haters.

    That’s all. Well, goodbye and best of luck.

        • You are a creature indeed and the ACP aren’t in a good place yes but its not all because of Funks, the other owners aren’t helping too by fighting and being inactive, Funks was a good leader he lead Puffle Warriors into the top ten, he lead ACP into top ten I don’t remember much but I think ACP got 1st In the top ten for like 5 weeks, have you lead any army into the top three? Not even the top three have you lead any army into the top ten? Guessing no.
