Ads on the site

If you’re not using an ad blocker, you may have noticed the site shows ads now. I didn’t think this day would come, as I always vehemently opposed using ads as an income source. When it came to creating content for PlanetSide 2, my motives were always pure – accumulate and share knowledge, promote intelligent discussion. 

I took pride in saying it doesn’t matter to me whether three or three thousand people visit my site, it was a proof that information presented here, as well as my personal points of view, stayed objective. It was a testament that me spamming links to relevant articles in online discussions was not me trying to get traffic for my site, but me trying to provide someone with easy access to useful information. 

A lot of time has passed, PlanetSide changed and so did I. I’m no longer creating new content for PlanetSide 2, and the site is instead maintained by our very own uzzi38. So I feel fine about using ads to at least cover the costs of hosting it, since I’ve been keeping it up out of my pocket for the last few years. 

That said, let me know if you see any bad ads, with scams or inappropriate advertisements. 

Christmas gifts from Daybreak Games

At the end of November 2018, I received a weird e-mail saying that Daybreak Games wants to send me some holiday gifts, and requested my shipping address.

The e-mail didn’t come from Daybreak Games itself, and the person on the other end wasn’t anybody I knew from PlanetSide 2 team. And as an owner of a small, but steady website, I receive a pile of spam and scam email every week. I also made a few enemies over the years. So I was quite suspicious, and reposted the e-mail to PlanetSide 2 reddit, but later was assured by Roxxly there was no foul play involved.

And indeed, today I finally received the package. Inside was a one-sided postcard, two metal mugs with “Daybreak Game Company” written on the side, and two pieces of delicious Belgium milk chocolate on a stick.

Needless to say, I’m very grateful for this gift. It may be small, but the recognition from the developer team of one of my most favorite games ever is priceless, and the mugs will serve as a lasting reminder of all the fun times I had with it.
