Well, wasn't expecting to be typing this today. Brawl was one of the first Minecraft servers I ever joined long, long ago- I didn't even understand what a "server" was at the time all those years back! Now that I think back I'm pretty certain I accidentally stumbled upon MC-War from a tutorial video showing how to add a server... I recall joining a round with no conception of the gamemode and trying to kill teammates with an untextured wooden axe, confused as to why everyone was immune and how I kept repeatedly dying for "no reason". I'm not sure why I stayed (probably since I didn't have the knowledge of how to find other servers?), but I did. I ended up becoming obsessed like many others, waking up early on weekends and spending the first hour of my day grinding levels. Eventually, I also figured out that experience was gained while AFK in infect matches, leading me to surpass level 60 but tank my KDR at the same time. I ended up w̶a̶s̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ spending some money on some guns and perks, which at the time provided a very large advantage over others and increased my incentive to play long into nights. Ultimately, I recognized that I was spending several hours a day on a block game and lost interest, becoming more productive in my everyday life. I ended up meeting quite a few nice people throughout that period! I regained interest in late 2018 and ended up spending way too much time on the server again. Unexpectedly out of thin air though (I hadn't been paying attention to Brawl news), 2.0 released, voiding all my hard "work" and killing four years of memes. This reset, among other aspects such as global loadouts and recoil, led to me and many other players abandoning the server. Since then, however, I've played on and off and reached max level. I ended up breaking my addiction before War died again near the end of the summer after realizing I had 300 hours of playtime on a block game... Anyway, this wasn't supposed to be a multiple paragraph biography but moreover a cachet nobility and commemoration post to all those I've met along the way. I actually only found out that War was shutting down earlier this day and thought I should at least make some tribute... I might even look back at this list in a few decades and see how many of you I can still track down! I expect to be adding to this list as time goes on!

Do not go gentle into that good night... Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.
