so this is the story and this is what went down. rumors have to stop cuz i dont want qs havn a bad rep
I carefully read this post. And most of it was basically true to form. To clarify for you exaclty what happen because yes i remember you were caught off guard. I made the call that your snake guy got the one crim player first. it was very close but i had to make a rule on it. he then moved up the snake and was subsquently hit on his left arm to be precise from their inside guy and i went to remove him for it. The ONLY reason i called a one for one was because he went off and fussed at me profusely. You werent quite aware of exactly why, you simply saw me coming for you out of nowhere. I tried to let you know why i was pulling you as i was trying to get your armband off. (at least give you a reason right?) I tried. Understandably so you reacted, wanted to get away from me and jerked backwards with your arm. I was hit in the mask as a result. At that moment and in the heat of the situation i wasnt afforded the luxury of trying to determine wether it was intentional or not, all i know is i was struck. I immediately turned around and eliminated your last guy because of that.
I had to do that to another team at the 3rd event. I wasnt proud of it, i felt really bad, and this time was no different.
Afterwards we were in each others faces. You for your reasons, me for my reasons. In the end we both buried the hatchet. unfortunately the results of the issue were detrimental to your finishings.
I was actually asked if i wanted to press charges. Apparently i wasnt the only one who saw this. I told them by all means no... (This is not the actions of one who wanted to screw you guys over.) I later thought about it and deemed it as an unfortunate accident. Personally i dont think you did it on purpose now. But to clear the record your back was to me when it happened, so to let you know i WAS elbowed, inadvertly maybe but none the less. Im fine, I wasnt hurt im not mad im not hatin or anything. Anyone that knows me well, knows im not an irrational or violent type of guy.
I dont mind giving repect when its due to teams out there.
Ive known qs for several years now and they can be a tuff team.
best of luck to ya in future events.
end of issue.
