      Naaah the acronym has been used for a few years actually. And I'm like 2 years older than you >.>

  2. Reminds me of that SL Gesture of "OMG IT'S ARYTE!"
  3. LL had nothing to do with it. It was all within the SLMC and the deterioration of said community due to factors presented by all groups, including Ordo.
  4. WHO IS THIS STRANGE WOMAN?!?!? Heather. You are back. :3!
  5. Good. Gooood. You're damn right. It would be "Tsume-san". :/ Anyways, right now I am dealing with a trade show thing until the end of the week. After that I have been playing Heroes and Generals or PayDay 2 mostly. The people I started playing Firefall with apparently lost interest or something. I'll probably be installing Arma 2 again shortly. I miss Cehckpoint (the things you can do with a TOW and a bus full of terrorists). Battlefield I don't play much because I don't have people to play it with. Q_Q
  6. I had planned to write something big and fancy for this but then having a real job and preparing for our biggest event every two years kinda took hold. I am old. I won't go through my history because I don't really think many of you care nor do I really want to type it all out. I have been many things. Grunt. NCO. Warrant Officer. Officer. Head of Fleet. 2IC of one of the first Alpha squads. Armorer. Recipient of one of the five Imperator's Stars and the only person to be given theirs in person. Woah. I was initially planning to mark my 8th anniversary with a resignation letter. I don't feel like this is Ordo anymore. In fact, I sometimes refer to it as "The group formerly known as Ordo". I am one of the old timers. I remember the hay-day of the SLMC in 2010 and 2011. The comradeship. The closeness of a tight-knit group. In the decline period on SL I stopped fighting and just scripted things, which I realize may not even mean anything to most of you now. When Ordo withdrew from SL I felt it was already a shell of its former self and the collective had given a DNR notice. Leaving SL just confirmed my feelings. When we initially started to become a more traditional gaming group, I figured things would pick up, but they just kinda scattered. People who I would see daily were now off doing their own thing in their own channel. I can look around and see the group, whatever it is now, has grown. I see officers I have never met. I feel resentment towards some people who looked at their "rank" as though it had great meaning even though in my eyes they did little to earn it compared to most of the SL fore-bearers. Then that resentment turned to pity: here were people who would never know anywhere near the pride that I felt every time I logged on to SL and fought alongside my friends. I feel sorry for them as I feel they will never know the sense of accomplishment over something they may work hard at. Why? Because no matter what the group is now, it can't compare to the tightly focused group of before. Things were more free and more interactive "back in the day". Now I look at the group and I see a group of people who play games together within various sub-groups. Is that a bad thing? Not at all, but I don't think it can compare to the past. I remember when i would come home and log on to SL and TS3 (or before that, Vent) first thing and check forums on campus during the day. Now I feel so disconnected I rarely seem to check at all. Hell I didn't even notice Xoza's promotion until today. At the same time, I will always see Aryte as the Imperator no matter who, what, where or when Ordo is mentioned. Nothing personal. So enough of the depressive trip down memory lane. I don't know many of you. You don't know me. Maybe we shouldn't care? Maybe we should? Maybe you have heard stories about me. I am that guy who makes things and rants about things. The guy who stuck up for the moral thing even if it was unpopular (because Ffff e-rank you get respect when you deserve it. The guy who cared more about enjoying things in this game than ego-thumping. I am the guy who has a lot of guns and Ffff you it is a magazine. Or maybe I am just that crabby old gun-nut. Who knows? But I'd like to try and get some of that changing. I plan to get Arma 2 installed on this new computer (because no one plays Arma 3), maybe even Planetside 2 if it has improved from the sucky POS it became and dust off the Sunderer. I've taken up some shenanigans on PayDay 2, World of Tanks, Battlefield 3.5 4, Heroes and Generals, and Firefall. If you play any of those feel free to drop me a line! So after eight years, what do I have? I have some great memories, some fantastic accomplishments, some people who I despise like the plague, and most importantly, some people I look at as life-long friends. I hope to try and find games you guys play that don't suck and that I can enjoy and hopefully be a bit more active again. I still may not be the most active person ever but I guess I can try and climb out of semi-retirement. Ordo has been part of my life for too long to just move on. I made a pact with Aryte that I couldn't leave until he did, but even then I am still sticking around. You can't get rid of me that easily. So in a TL;DR format: Hello. I'm Tsume. I'm old and you look like you are new around here, at least in my reference frame. Tell me about yourself and what you enjoy about this group, whatever it may be now. LASTLY. If Aryte gets to troll people with images in his Old and Grumpy post then so help me I do too. So for those of you who may have heard the rumors, let me get one thing on the record, let me set one thing straight... Let me make one thing PERFECTLY CLEAR.
  7. In all honesty, I don't think there should be a successor. No one can replace Aryte or be what Aryte was. Period. At this stage I think the group should be "led" by a group. Part of me even thinks that the group should change its name, because without Aryte, this isn't Ordo. What about adding a "new" to the name? Something like "The New Ordo Imperialis" Or "Novus Ordo Imperialis" Oh... Wait.
  8. If I recall , it was something along the lines of "TSUME I WANT THIS THINK THAT DOES THIS! MAKE PLS"

  11. Hey guys I am looking to build a new computer to replace my 5-6 year old one (It runs an Intel E4500 and PCIE was pretty new when I bought the mother board). I was looking at using an i5-4670 but no idea from there. I also already have a GPU. Someone suggested some other parts, let me know what you think / if you have other suggestions Case: COUGAR Evolution Black ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16811553002 ) CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80646I54670K ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16819116899 ) Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16835103099 ) Motherboard: ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16813131981 ) RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16820231428 ) Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ.....82E16822148834 ) PSU: Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073 ) Any good case suggestions? The above person suggested a Cougar Evolution but is looks kinda eh. My current case is pretty awesome and is massive (Lian Li PC-7B) and I despise things like lights and such. A few are fine, but the whole headlight computer thing is annoying My current Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112099
  12. That is a really bad ass nerf mod.
  13. How do you like the SR1911 Hunter? Also which FN pistol is that, it is hard to make out in the picture.
  14. Me. For sure.
  15. Which video has my glorious Sunderer jump? :D
