To Begin, I want to address what led to my ban. I was first banned back in 2019 for xray, this ban lasted about 6 months before I was unbanned then banned again. I was then unbanned again in 2022 where I had shown I had changed and began to build trust once again with the staff of TOR. During this time, I started playing with Midrellos, Evantial, and Ashjer and grew rather close to all of them. It was after I became part of their Gondor faction when they began to tell me of their plans to take over the server and put in place a new staff team. I said nothing of this because I didn't feel like it was my place to interfeer with/get involved.
Now come late July, the server closed and I had no idea what was happening for about a day, when Ashjer approached me and told me the staff was being changed and Phoenix was being replaced as owner. He then proceeds to ask me if I would want to become the new Manager/Head Admin and take over Phoenix's position because of my prior experience running LotR severs. I then agreed.
Now as for the ban on TOR. My actions with being involved with Ashjer came at a price; that price, was the community of TOR. I was seen as an enemy in the communities eyes and was banned from the server as soon as it came back up. I have since then made many efforts to mend this relationship, which I believe I have in some conversations with Mido via Discord.
As Midrellos said in his appeal, a couple weeks ago, he and I opened up a server called the Three Rings. Most of everything I could possibly say about that was already mentioned by Mid. What I have to add is conversations which took place with Mido. I came off very rash and defensive over our server setup, saying "the rules were something I wrote a long time ago" but after further talk, the conclusion arrived where the rules were, for the better part, a direct copy of TOR's. All this just began to make me miss TOR even more, and with my friend Mid getting unbanned, I began to think maybe I can be given the same opportunity.
I am greatly sorry that I put all this on this community and was involved in a coup which led to Phoenix leaving. It has been on my mind for over a year now and I have been living with overwhelming feelings of regret for taking the offer given to me by Ashjer. I can promise, if I am to return, you will see the side of me which the staff of TOR once believed I could become. All I ask now from this community, is forgiveness.
