As I stated in the ZD thread, I didn't know DS very well. I had just begun building a relationship with him in preparation for the d5m1 tournament I'm hosting in October. We had some really extensive talks about doom strategy and general gaming psychology things, and I knew I would really like this kid. He was very easy to get along with from what I could see. It's funny because he told me I trained him when he was newer to the game and I feel like such an ass because I really don't remember training him or even really speaking to him back in the day. But the fact that he remembered that does tell me the kind of character this kid had and truthfully, I've got nothing bad to say about him despite not knowing him very well.

On a side note, grieve however you need to guys. Grief is important in the face of tragedy and if you need anyone to talk to, please don't hold it in - express it here or with close friends. DS meant a lot to this community and touched several lives and I'm so dreadfully sorry to all of you guys this happened.

I'll share a quick funny story about him though:

I remember a few years ago we used to all frequent Jenovas BestEver server and it was typically divided into doom channels and league channels. Around this time, we had a fascination with kicking Caboose because it was hilarious - it still would be. He'd blow up. One night, I accidentally kicked DS and a few minutes later, he joined and just yelled "NERDS!!!" and went back to his channel. Of course we weren't mad at all, it was more hilarious than anything. When I asked DS about it in our passing conversations over the past few weeks, he didn't remember it likely because, in his own words, he was drunk out of his mind. I never took offense to that, if was just another example of how easy-going he was because I don't believe he meant to be malicious. Just seemingly a fun loving guy.

RIP DS, you were just hitting your stride man. Tear shit up in the doom afterlife. :\

Honestly, I didn't really know him, and I only found now what happened (when TerminusEst13 tried to tell me I had gone to work already). Losing anyone like this is terrible, and it's never good to have to deal with it.

I didn't connect to the forums/irc yesterday so i saw this a few minutes ago.
I just can't believe it.
For me, DS will always be a great example of duelist, CTF player and a great example of person.
I won't ever forget his amazing attitude and performances against me, like beating me up with scores like 25x6, 25x3 lmao.

And the day that i beat him for the first time, oh man i felt so badass, but then we dueled again a few minutes later and guess what? he destroyed me hahaha.
And when we dueled to decide who was going to have the biggest ELO at NJ1? LMAO, if u connect today there, u will see SKRH in 2nd place.
Too bad i won't be able to face him again, but i appreciate everything that he taught me and for every single match and all the spanking he gave me haha.

A really chill and funny dude with amazing skills, surely he will never be forgotten.
Of course thats a great loss, but he will always be remembered by every single doomer of this community.

All Hail DS, All Hail Aaron!

Horrible news, thoughts to his family in this tough time. I didn't know him too well, but from occasional interactions on IRC & elsewhere, I always got the impression he was a really nice, well rounded guy - and very talented doomer. A huge loss to our community.

It is always so sad to see such a kind and loved person go like this, I guess no one could imagine what was going through his head, depression really sucks. I did not know him very well, we had a few TS conversations and lots of CTF/Duel games, but everyone could say he was a really nice person, a great friend and one of the most talented doomers in history.

Don't hold your thoughts to yourself, ask for help. Remember that you do matter, and that you can count on your friends and family for the support you need to get through bad times.

Rest in peace DS, you will be truly missed by all of us.

Its surreal to me that somebody like DS who always hopped on TS cracking jokes and giving us many funny moments, was feeling like there was no other way to escape his troubles other than to commit suicide. As somebody whos seen and have been taught signs of depression from soldiers I've never would have guessed DS to be in that situation. Rest in peace bro.

I always seen the guys name for years but never knew him personally but I knew he was a good player and did his part well in this community.
It really does suck when someone who was influential to the scene passes.
Rest in peace.

I recently heard about this. Damn, this is sad, I did not know much DS but the little I know about him was great. Aside from Doom he was very fun and humble.
I remember once I joined at TS and he was cool as fuck.
Now talking about Doom, he was my favorite player at Duel and I used to watch him playing duels, ctf or even his matchs in youtube (Quakecon's match mostly lol). Some of the times I played against him I used to use "The Guide" as nickname just for fun... I feel very empty right now.

My condolences to all his friends and loved ones.

Wow unbelievable.
Definitely did not expect this, was always a funny chill guy, no ego, and the best player I played with personally.

So sad.
