This adventure started in 2012, when I don't know why a video about a "minecraft human cannon" was suggested to me, and not understanding what it was I clicked. I really enjoyed how complicated and simple that game looked at the same time. The next thing I browsed was "Minecraft free download" and the first version I played was 1.4.2 using AnjoCaido's cracked client or I think so. Shortly after the 1.5.2 update came out, and that became my favourite game. Just around the same time I could manage joining a cracked server and damn if it was fun. I rember building a casino, a doorbell, using slabs to make the floor to save blocks, crafting notch apples, being trolled by people who placed buttons with tnt behind them. Italian server had griefing and raiding when factions was not even a thing, I remember using hoppers to steal items out of [Lockette] chest and if you don't you're not a minecrafter. It all started out as a way to bypass the protections that existed not a real game mode. Sadly that server was later abandomned in 1.7 because of them running broke but we stayed there till it closed. (Any historical footage has been lost or hard to retrive but one video is on youtube with me in it)
I learned here that a server is not just a hosting but closer to a family and I could enjoy simple thing. I'm so sad when some people like Cansky, Lucy and iLemon prove from how they act they hadn't such moments in their lifes. As christmas present I got the premium account together with LEGOs. I could finally enjoy a lot more servers and hunger games, brough to Italy by GrandeScavatore (Ermak Zane) decent pvper and famous youtuber like Capobastone, the guy who cursed a lot and basically invented grifing. I played mainly in the SPHX network and on my own server, where I had an average of 8 people on working on stupid builds, joking and trolling on skype.
When the first youtuber joined FadeCloud some of my old mates messaged me on skype they were back playing. The youtuber happened to be in my soon to be new faction Dynasty with AminePvP and Swag_Balotelli. My faction was doing good, but we soon realised that we could behave like bosses only in our country, international servers were so sweaty, toxic and pay to win. Our faction got raided by some cheaters and we quit, I think I had most of my fun times there. When fadecloud owners argued with each other the youtuber shortly joined pitforge.com and many Italians followed him, this didn't last long either and probably doing some partnership with the owner he joined Desteria bringing now loads of fans behind him. Even if he gained new fans he started losing the old ones who liked him for the original content while he moved over to some childish looking gameplay to get more kids views. Some of the people from his old Dynasty turned against him and raided him.
In my new faction I met _AleFerro_ and VenditoreDiRose (fucd). Us there were gonna few of those to stay once after the Italians invasion ended.
This was at the age of Petra, map 9.0 Eldyn. I then focused on improving myself as I saw other people's cannons were extremely better than mines.
I started from doing experiments, testing, repeating. And I learned the importance of hard working and perseverance. I just remember how happy I was when I built my first 10 stacker, probably not as much as when I made my last 255 cannon.
I learned quickly on my own and I for that I was very apprecieted by a guy I initially hated called Noobecraft, a good legit pvper. He liked my cannons that at the age were actually pretty advanced I got in his faction and I must thank tomasseti the chill leader of Redemption. We've been through hard times, insiders, raids and staff abuses (farms world edited out). And during a raid by OhDonekh I was helpful and I was bought faction fly with the copouns we earned together. KoenneH helped me defend too and he bought me cannon VIP appreciating how I got a lefty to work and we shared DankMames as friend who really made me enjoy cannoning. People were valuing me for helping them and I was doing the same, not like desteria staff whe even back then was punishing innocent people like my other cannon realm pals and for shortly fac mates DOMBUH, Adoze and Tru3Blue.
Someone could point out Redemption "never won a map", but our faction was always there ftop 1-2, not like the casual ftops 1 who placed spawners in wild and we were for real having fun.
We played the second drego map joined by the TarriYT and his german gang splitting more factions than anyone else thanks to my efficient cannons and sand bots that we illegally used to gen the base too XD. Not being punished for it but for sure when we had a legal base defence that got removed during the raid basically giving free spots to place creepers on. And because Cansky told us the map finished 1 day before we couldn't get ftop 2 and for a debatable mute ban I couldn't be defending and we got raided by pirates paid 50$ by a guy not worth mentioning whose 3 out of 5 wild bases (all built last days) got split by me in 2 hours.
After that I was about to do the right decision and quit the server for good. I still enjoyed cannoning as I was meeting some of the best cannoners like Ruet, Bluist, TNTToggle, Fr3nch, 8825 and the youtuber Dragonairbender on cannon servers. Some started appreciating my work some didn't (Dombuh, BestBear, SuicidalKids) but these were gonna be jelly as most of my concepts are now used widely.
After realising I had been working on cannons for this long, I tought I was one of the best cannoners too. The truth is i still know nothing, nothing about even the things I know best like Minecraft and coding. And I'm shamed to admit I probably know nothing of the rest either nothing about life and how to behave, even if sometimes seeing you I'm reassured I'm not the worst. When I see the ftop 1 has to use raidalerts on a dead server, I get how this game completely missed his point. When I see people paying someone else 50$ to be defended in order to win 40$ buycraft I know for sure there is a problem. When I see people saying that someone would be a great staffer because she's a girl I don't care and I say that I really think they're just being men.
When I see someone gets split with 10 people online, using breadcrumbs to patch, genning sandwalls in front of everyone and blowing up spawners as soon as I make a cannon but still have no shame to talk trash later I know this game is not just toxic but entirely wrong. I always defined myself toxic in the language and gameplay but I've never been shameless or have hacked.
Also someone tried to DDOS our faction sending IP grabber links with an account fron our faction discord meaning it was either: Excalibar, ItzBenzyCam or ToxicPhish. To this date the Outlaws faction remains unpunished, neither for the ip grabbers, genning or splitting value from Immortals.
At the same time I GET BANNED FOR THIS:
This is the most "relevant" people who think it's a joke, all my faction and friends are with me would crowdfund me an unban but I don't want them to because I did nothing and I've already explained why I should've not been banned in the appeal. It wasn't even a joke of hacking.
This is just an excouse and a very good one to get someone you hate out of your server as I did more than you two who voted in favor of my ban and you see a threat in me, listing out issues on posts like: https://www.desteria.com/community/threads/100-things-that-are-wrong-with-desteria.100254/ and reporting people doing illegal things more than anyone did legit replacing you in your job.
ALL I said IS BENZY WOULD LIKE TO SEE ME HACK DESTERIA SO I WOULD BE BANNED
THE FIRST LINE OF THE MESSAGE LEGIT SAYS I WON'T SAY IM HACKING DESTERIA.
This happened to other people too, just end doing it and repair your errors as you're in time.
I still think all of this comes from you not being able understanding what I wrote, and you're likely,
given that even if you were online couldn't follow up what people talk about in chat.
If you still don't get why my whole story is up there It's because this is not my story but the story of the people who made it possible and I hugely wanted to thank, even enemies who played fairly and even upvoed my appeal.
You can feel very strong doing /ban AntiCheap. But you can feel stronger if you did nothng everybody but who is biased supports you and says who banned you has to be joking.
Even if when I saw the ban on a random morning the first thing I did is laugh i don't think this is fun.
You didn't forbid me where to play but who to play with (and who against (giving them huge help)).
