You are supposed to do article side by side comparisons like this when they are written by the same person not two different people, and "life comes at you fast" is for things that happen around three days later not three years later. Pewdiepie also shared a stolen version of the tweet giving this a total of about 50,000 people whose brains have been so rotted by memes that they don't even know how the memes work anymore.

    Of course many YT fans are idol worshipers so they are praising him for doing "real investigative journalism" by taking the word of a guy who edits videos to make people dance to Alabama ******" and praising him for admitting that the video that he got shared 10s of thousands of times, leading to harassment of the WSJ author, could be wrong before making it private.
    I probably wouldn't try to convince people that journalists are trying to destroy Youtubers, by reporting on the things Youtubers say, and to only trust me while I upload incorrect information I have to quickly remove. Than again, I don't live in a conspiracy filled pretend land where everyone is out to get me (except for my legion of fans who would likely still find a way to praise me if I live-streamed myself murdering someone).

  11. Alexander452 liked a article by Conan, EF: Recap event #4: Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2   
    With winter finally coming to us all, it is time to turn our attention to the months of November and December. As many of you probably know, these two months are filled with a myriad of different holidays across the different cultures, including (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Aside from that, many people spend this time of the year with their family and/or travelling. As such, we, the Expeditionary Conclave, felt it best not to host new games during these two months. Rather we will dedicate this time to do a recap of the more popular games we hosted during the last year and as such, we will spend the nine weekends of these two months revisiting nine of our games (the last two events will be held on the last two Fridays of December, as to not interfere with Christmas and New Year's celebrations). 
    This weeks game will be Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2!

  13. Alexander452 liked a article by Conan, EF Year Recap and Winter Hiatus   
    With winter finally coming to us all, it is time to turn our attention to the months of November and December. As many of you probably know, these two months are filled with a myriad of different holidays across the different cultures, including (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Aside from that, many people spend this time of the year with their family and/or travelling. As such, we, the Expeditionary Conclave, felt it best not to host new games during these two months. Rather we will dedicate this time to do a recap of the more popular games we hosted during the last year and as such, we will spend the nine weekends of these two months revisiting nine of our games (the last two events will be held on the last two Fridays of December, as to not interfere with Christmas and New Year's celebrations). 
     
    Event layout
    Saturday, the 5th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 5pm EDT: Speed Runners

    Burnout Paradise
     
     
    Burnout Paradise is an open-world and highly acclaimed racing game, released in 2008. The games open world features several different setting to race in, from the heart of the city to highways and country roads and in addition to racing with cars, the game also offers the opportunity to race motorcycles. Overall the price tag is quite reasonable, so the EC felt this would be a wonderful game for the month of October.
    As such we will host the first EF Burnout Paradise event this Saturday, the 8th of October at 4pm EDT/ 9pm BST. For this event we will be using Discord.
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.

  19. Alexander452 liked a article by WITHASTICK, (Updated) Community Spotlight - 9/5/16 A Commander Leaves For A New Journey   
    *To those members in the U.S. and Canada regions, hope you enjoying your Labor Day. Be safe!*
     
    One of the hardest things about being a Commander is watching time go by and seeing those who latch on with it. In my short time as being Commander I’ve see many come, and just as many go. Some with big impacts to myself and this community, others impact big behind scenes only to have no one notice. Today we celebrate a Commander who will be stepping down, who may think he didn’t make much of an impact but that’s so wrong. He’s help more of us in ways he might not even know and in other ways he does know. Early on Wildfox help tackle the giant that was known as Planetside 2 during the time that our Lord Commander made a mistake. And because of guidance, strength, and idiotic determination to not stop help Planetside 2 become a hallmark in our AJSA history. And while we may never see the fabled Minecraft AJSA pc server (All those minigames), we must honor the same idiotic determination to help spawn such a dream.
     
    He may not known this, infact this is the first time I am admitting it but he helped me without knowing. When myself and Doshka were made Commanders we both were a bit shocked. Both didn’t know how to process it at all. But those first few months hearing Wildfox cracking jokes and poking fun at Doctor_Evil and Tons0fun really helped get that weight off my shoulders. Had me lighten up a bit and now with him gonna looks like I got to be the one cracking the jokes and poking fun. I think I might manage though.
     
    Today we’re saying goodbye to Wildfox, a Commander who did so much and needs to be remember for it. However small it may have been or as large it has been. Life continues forward, and we have to make choices. Some choices will force us to step away from other things. But doesn’t mean it was a wrong choice or a right choice. Many of us chose to be apart of this community, and however big or small of a role you think you may play is overshadowed by how much it meant. Wildfox is simply stepping down, and will be around time to time. Below I got the chance to do an one-to-one interview with Wildfox, as well as get a few Commanders to say a few words.
     

    *Updated: I have went through and updated the interview to include screencaps of Wildfox's legendary grammar and spelling for all to see. And for those to see the level I had to go to in cleaning up his reply for the interview. I mean look at it! It's like decoding a dead language!*
     
    WITHASTICK: Firstly thanks Wildfox for taking the time to do this one-to-one interview. Honestly wish it was for different reasons. However, to the many of member of the AJSA Community may not you tell them a brief introduction of who you are and what you did? Also if you want to share this, possibly what you may do for a living?
     
    WILDFOX: Ah, well for for a long time it was just Planetside 2 and the RTS games with Beef until I started on the Minecraft server. As for what I do I’m a U.S. Soldier with the guard as an 11B1P.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: Can you tell us a little about how you came to be a Commander within the AJSA Community?
     
    WILDFOX: Lol, ah well my first day with AJSA was the day Planetside 2 started up. They asked for help leading, so being in the U.S. Army I’m like “Ya I can do that, sure!” Turns out that’s how you get promoted about 2-3 weeks after I’m an Officer. Than incharge of the game itself and after what Joe did with the event I was made Commander to better lead the once largest AJSA game we had going at the time.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: What history of Planetside 2 and yourself may members might not have known?
     
    WILDFOX: Hmmm I did a lot of work getting the rest of the PlanetSide 2 groups to like us, like TRAF and BWC. At the start both groups were like the rest of the player base of Planetside 2, who at the time hate the AJSA for being nothing but fanboys and all around bad players. It took a lot of work to get them to start seeing us as a group who were better than the stigma given to us. However in the end that stigma is what killed the game for the AJSA.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: What are one of the best memories you have from when you were leading Planetside 2.
     
    WILDFOX: Has to be the 24 hour event. So much work, but I loved it.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: To the Planetside 2 veterans who maybe reading this do you have anything to say to them?
     
    WILDFOX:  to Yes! Go play with TRAF. We as the AJSA may not play as a group anymore. But, we still have guys who running with TRAF, who we’re on good pals with and work well together. We have AJSA members playing with them all the time.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: I know may be swore to speak on, but can you explain what the fabled AJSA Minecraft server to the members who might’ve not known of it?
     
    WILDFOX: Ah right, well at the start Tons always wanted one and I’ve had some ideas. I could say it was going well, but we never really had a big team and I could only do so much. I can build with the best of them, but I can’t do command warps and the plugins all that well. We also got hung up on the 3rd world which was going to be the mini-game world. After a lot of time trying to look for someone to help, we with no luck pulled the plug. That being said it’s not dead it’s simply just going to be some time before we can finish it.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: What are one of the perks of being a Commander will you miss?
     
    WILDFOX: Pfft, perks? Doc locked me in a room and said “here ya go!” I’ve just now got out and I’m on the run… if you see him I wasn't here!
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: What are one of the best memories you have from when you were a Commander?
     
    WILDFOX: Hmmm, just palling around playing games. Really that’s what they AJSA was for. It’s not about Joe, Tons, or Doc it’s for all of us to get on and find some random guy off the site  to play games with that you’ve never seen before. I’ve met so many people that I still play today I’ve helped people find others who even if they don’t play with the AJSA anymore still talk to those people. That’s what I leave behind those ties are what I look back on.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: What’s your favorite video game?
     
    WILDFOX: Oh boy, here we go. Well, Legend of Zelda. It was my first game and still is such an amazing game even after all this time.
    Original unedited reply:

     
    WITHASTICK: Final question, well not really a question. More of a moment for you to speak. I know you’re only simply stepping down from your duties, and you’ll be around time to time. But the floor is yours sir to say anything you may want too.
     
    WILDFOX: Hmmm, well in the end it was fun even with all the problems the AJSA might’ve had. Like the kidnapping (Tons and Doc), and the forced labor (Tons and Doc). It was fun and yes I will be around still willing to help out. I just can’t focus as much as I could back then. So if you guys ever need help and you see me on I’m more than happy to have a chat!
    Original unedited reply:



    As a final jester to Wildfox, I’ve linked the video of the 2014 Game Awards Legend of Zelda theme performance by Imagine Dragons and Koji Kondo. As Legend of Zelda is his favorite game of all time, and this hands down is the best musical performance at any Game Show we’ve seen thus far. While it may be a goodbye look at like this. It’s a hero taking a new path, that’ll lead to new journeys. While time may past and he may come back from the path looking different. He is the same… as he always been and always will be.

  22. Alexander452 liked a article by WITHASTICK, Community Spotlight - 8/15/16 Writer's Block   
    So the last few months I’ve stumbled into a bit of a writer's block, and sadly to admit been going through the motions to keep putting up Community Spotlights. Now before we continue on, let me make something very clear. This not me making a plea for help or people to feel sorry for me. This is just me trying to reach out and explain something about how I feel with Community Spotlight. In hopes to possibly find something out, to find the correct path around this block. Think of it like an exercise for the creative mind (Maybe).
     
    Like I said, I’ve been in this block for the last few months and mostly going through the motions when making these articles. That’s not to say anything I’ve made was meaningless or the people featured in them were not worth wild. It’s more in the sense that I struggle to understand what is interesting and what is not as a reader. But why, do I struggle with that? Well what creative feedback can I get from what I’ve been doing. From what I’ve seen even if it’s me going through the motions or me creating an interesting interview with a community member the same amount of feedback is there. The same amount of interest is there. What do I learn from that? That no matter what I write I’ll get the same feedback? If I just upload an article that features me just sitting here rambling on about a writer’s block, will I see the same kind of feedback?
     
    Do I try to create a Community Spotlight for the people or for myself? What I find interesting may not seem interesting to others (Again from the same amount of feedback). Possibly the style needs to change, the approach needs to change? But again how do I know which way to change it? What do I change… do I change for the feedback that hasn’t change or do I change for myself. Maybe that is where my writer's blocks has come to. Maybe I need to go back to the idea that I am making Community Spotlight the way I want it. The way I know is interesting and different from before, at least to myself it is.
     
    So that’s it, starting next week we’ll get back on track (for real) and do things my why (again). And hey! I can't really complain all too much can I? I get to do something that even lets me openly talk about a trouble to it's Community (If they read it that is). I know I rambled around the idea that the feedback hasn’t changed… but hey why not change that and leave feedback. And just so that this Community Spotlight isn't "First world problems, the article" let's get some Spotlights in here.
     



    Not gonna lie, I have a soft spot for Alexander452 videos. By soft spot I mean where my laughter hurts the most, in my soul. Anyway! Alexander sneaks out yet another funny video from another Expeditionary Force event, which this time was centered around PayDay 2. It’s as if he sells the idea of Expeditionary Force being a fun event (And not a Game Nights knock off) better. Maybe Commander Conan (You know the Commander I called Scottish, when he is German) should showcase these videos? Maybe he reads this and takes notes? Maybe he gives me that FUCKING SANDWICH HE OWES ME! Sorry there, don’t know what came over me… what sandwi- anyway! Check out the video and leave some love for Alexander!
     
     
    Bamboe (The Xbox Minecraft Game Officer) uploaded a video showcasing highlights from Xbox One events of Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, and Rocket League (Again the Minecraft guy) with some… let's say elegant music. Showing that hey, everyone on their platforms can have some fun right? It’s not just PC and PS4 knocking head back and forth all the time. Check out the video if you ever curious on how a Xbox One event might look like.
     

    Last we have another of Wade D McGinnis reviews “The Good, The Bad, The OMG” this time for Headlander. Again another soft spot for Wade, as his reviews are great pieces of content. Informative, short to the point, and doesn’t sacrifice any moment to throw or say something that doesn’t need to be said (While still finding ways to insert short one liners of concerns, positives, or negatives if that makes sense?) I know myself and many of the Commanders watch your content Wade for games that we are unsure of. Definitely be sure to check Wade’s content out if you haven’t, it’s worth that watch.
     
     

    No Man’s Sky takes a fantasy that many of us all share, exploring a universe freely and venture to discover; Galaxies, systems, planets, geographical wonders, creatures, aliens, items, ships, space stations, space battles, and more. You can venture from any mountain you see on a planet, to any star in the sky you spot in the entire universe. That’s the beauty of it, sure there is shooting and destruction. But for the first time in a long time we are being given a chance in a game to explore space. Just as we imagine it when we were children, to even right now whenever we see a beautiful star lit night sky. You’re the navigator of your own dreams, placed in a ocean of endless expanding stars.
     
    Challenge: Discover something/anything new first and claim it (Galaxies, systems, planets, creatures, etc). Take a screenshot and share your discovery to the community (possibly share of a story about what you've discovered fictional or nonfictional). Discover more and interesting things to claim Champion of this challenge.

    Payday 2
     
    Payday 2 is a co-op FPS, allowing up to four people to work together to rob a myriad of different targets, from banks, to jewellery stores, armoured cars and many more targets. The game received generally positive reviews, especially in regards to the co-op, which the EF will be focusing at. Also for those who are concerned about it; the microtransaction feature was removed and players are now able to open the safes for free.
    As such we will host the first EF Payday 2 event this Saturday, the 6th of August at 4pm EDT/ 9pm BST. As players will be limited to 4 player sessions, we will split the attendees into groups of corresponding sizes. Each team competes to earn the most money, with the team that scored the most money during a heist receiving one of our rare contest pips (as soon as awards are back, that is) (also do note that proof in the form of a screenshot is required).
     
                        
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment).

    Guns of Icarus Online
     
    Guns of Icarus Online is a team-based steampunk-themed game, in which opposing teams command and man airships. There are 7 different airships to choose from, each ship can be fitted by the captain with various weapons, in order to create a ship that excels in the desired combat roles. Players can choose from three different classes, namely gunner, engineer and pilot, each of which has access to certain tools to maintain and buff the ship. Additionally there are numerous cosmetic customisation available.
     
    As such we will host the first EF GoI event this Saturday, the 9th of July at 4pm EDT/ 9pm BST. 
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
     
                             
     
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow....itionary-force/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.
