Response to Austins 'sex lies and video tape' post.

I actually wasn’t going to do one.  Had no interest.  He has every right to voice his thoughts and not get attacked for them whether they were true or false.  Sometimes simple things like that can be subjective to the specific individual.  How they think, how they see things, how they adapt and respond to certain events.  So whether he's 100% right or doesn’t understand this or that is another subject.  Some of the things I could say would rebound and possibly make some others look bad.


I have a few moral codes I live by, like for example if anything like say stealing from a friend, earning money at the expense of  friend, hitting on a friends girlfriend etcetc, these are things where I usually instantly turn my back on a person.  I'm not saying he did or didn’t do any of these, I'm just saying I had plenty of reason to stop talking to him looooooong ago but didn’t mainly because of the rest of our friends and how it would affect things.  So I'm not going to go into too much detail or bring up everything.  I'm generally a 'think of others first, me second' kind of person.  And despite how I come across in the clips, the whole rubbish about me being awesome, every girl loving me etc, it’s all indirect making fun of myself.  I think that’s one reason why I have such huge patience, because anything they say at me is nothing I don’t say to myself now and then.  I give myself more shit than anyone else ever could.


There are a couple reasons I'm doing this.  Firstly because of the amount of people who keep asking me to patch things up with him and keep playing.  The whole being called a douche and a jerk by heaps of people after that post he made doesn’t bother me, even though the abuse from Austins hardcores has been fierce and nonstop since he made that post, whether it be comments on my youtube or private messages.  Also today my mind was in a strange place.  Flooded by heaps of memories and old sensations of when I was younger, how I am now, how some expect me to act older and more boring despite still being the same person personality wise and even down to looking in the fucking mirror and seeing the same face I saw 10+ years ago, it just made me want to break something.  I'm not violent by nature, but I do have a problem when I think someone’s stepping on me, taking advantage of me or abusing me, whether this is a friend, teachers, or work.  I have a tendency to just forget common sense and either get in their face or walk away for good.  Sometimes you could call it stupidly fearless.  I mean crazy con was my nickname in school lololol.


Anyway, examples of why I WILL NOT be in any more videos.  Everyone pretty much knows, or fucking well SHOULD KNOW by now, that whenever we play my ping is horribly high because Austin hosts the games.  This means he has the lowest ping and therefore performs better than the rest of us.  Meanwhile my ping is 300-500 average.  So it’s pretty much well known that sometimes where I shoot on my screen isn’t where the bullet actually goes.  If you check in my videos there’s one listed as a collection of friendly fire incidents from ONE game.  There’s a good clip where I shoot 1 yard in front of Austin’s character and somehow he gets shot.  This is the sort of thing I have to work through while playing.  I usually laugh when it happens and so do the rest since its completely unexpected half the time.  However Austin seems to forget this very often and outright shoots back at me now and then, even kills me at times.  There are clips of the others just gunning me down.


One time I hosted a game so they could see how it was on my end.  While I was running around obliterating everything, they were shooting each other and missing plenty of zombies and getting semi raped, freaking out at how hard and at times frustrating it was while I laughed away.  I also like to mention that L4D we just play for fun, not serious.  At least it used to NOT be serious.  The only games I'm serious in are competitive ones like CS, or TF2.  I'll generally be in the top half of the table, sometimes even on the top spot.  But L4D?  You don’t take that sort of game seriously.  You just can’t.  It’s made for you to have fun with.  I mean there’s fucking zombies rushing you.  That just screams fun.


The Molotov’s friendly fire, that’s not even me doing it on purpose.  The thing spreads where it wants to spread.  I can’t control it.  Yet I'm blamed for it.  The videos are properly set out to show me as a friendly firing crazy person.  I shoot someone, instant rage.  I'd also like to add whenever Austin shoots someone there isn’t any back lash and he actually laughs or just ignores what he did.  Lots of clips have that sort of thing edited out.  There’s also been some times where he's outright raged at me, those too were edited out.  Basically you could say I've just had abuse hurled at me nonstop.  So much so that right now the game has zero fun for me anymore. 


He mentions how I said the games turned into point A to point B, not stopping, always moving quickly to finish stages.  This is true.  I remember playing the silent hill map, trying to stop along the way to look at some of the stuff the creator had done because I was actually impressed and I'd be told hurry up move move move.  Lots of games it was like this.  Frequently left behind because I'd be clearing up some zombies, turn around and suddenly the group is a year in front of me.  One game I remember, going through hallways of a building, massive wave of zombies came past, darted into a nearby room to defend myself and expected the others to do this also since that’s what you do.  They kept running.  Austin yelling at me why I was still behind, and meanwhile I'm yelling back that I'm being attacked by swarms and need help, and the reply I got was almost as if I were making it up and to hurry along.  Cleared the zombies, managed to live, went outside.


Shortly later half of us are outside this one building, we hear a tank coming, I'm outside waiting with a molotov with Jed, Austin and Cody inside the building with the tank trying to get out.  I wait and then throw.  3 seconds later Austin darts out of the doorway and runs INTO the flames even though they were nowhere near the doorway.  Now I can’t say what it looked like on his side, but to me I was completely stunned.  He raged and gunned me down dead as he ran past.  I got the tank of course and Cody ran around the flames as I was expecting Austin to do.


So yeah, by now I'm fucked off.  Once I spawn I decide to shoot him for him.  He kills me because his connection is way better.  After that he camped at the doorway of where I spawn, opened the door when I did, gunned me down instantly, repeat 7x.  I was dead before I could even turn to face him.   The rest of that game was played almost silently, Jed and Cody saying nothing Austin handing out instructions to beat the tank.  He said something to jonna and she asked me that she heard I was being a jerk in the game.  I edited that play through showed her the clip, and not even an apology when she saw what happened.  There’s quite a few instances in some of the clips posted where I'm killed on the spot for no reason.  I do my best not to snap but you know there comes a time when enough is enough.


Another time I accidently shot at him on one map, he turned grenade launchered me.  So I just kept shooting back while he grenade launchered me to death then carried on.  That was probably the first time I ever rage quitted a game.  I think I didn’t play with them for about 4months.  That was 2 Christmases ago.


One other thing that’s very frustrating is we could never actually play L4D with others or Austin would freak out.  He couldn’t understand or accept that we probably wouldn’t mind playing with our own friends now and then.  Jed and I were planning to do a silly 'Francis and Bill' miniseries I'd thought up, but every time we tried to start doing it he would instantly log in and ask us what we were doing and why we were playing without him.  I'd have to say playing with him was like walking on eggshells.  He's a very emotional person and we had to constantly think about him first before we did or said anything.  It’s extremely hard and taxing.  He also knows this.  At least he SHOULD considering the amount of times we’ve asked him to calm down in games because its just a game.  So him saying he was completely surprised at how I felt is either him completely forgetting or him ignoring us, or mainly me.


L4D2 however, yes I totally do not like that game.  I don’t like the characters, I don’t like the voice acting, I don’t like the music, I don’t like the stage designs, theres almost nothing I like about that game.  Because we played it more and the first game less, things did start getting worse between us.  I wasn’t enjoying the treatment I was getting, I wasn’t enjoying the game I was playing, so basically meant I didn’t have a focus point to calm down with whenever I got annoyed at something.  Which meant I lashed back at whoever bugged me the most.


The thing that made me just outright be completely done with everything was during the Meet Jed clip.  I'm a fairly creative person.  I enjoy writing, I love thinking up original things.  I had ideas for a Meet series for everyone and a few other interesting clips we could do for fun.  The Meet Con thing was just a test to see if people found it funny.  I wanted Meet Jed to completely blow that out of the water.  So I thought up a bunch of ideas, pushed to have it made for like a year or whatever, and finally we started.  We hopped onto Skype, spoke for about an hour or so, we were all pretty excited at how fun this was going to be.  I gave all my ideas which was pretty much 90% of the entire clip and they loved it.  Jed and Austin had a few ideas of their own which were also great and we used them.   The first few clips were done and I saw them, they were brilliant, following my ideas or slightly altering them to make them better. I was loving this.  There was even a totally new scene Austin put in that was great.  Very comical.


A few weeks later I'm shown a fairly rough 90% completed version and my brain just shut down.  3/4 of the thing was almost nothing like I'd thought up or what we'd spoken about.  I asked Austin why the changes, why this wasn’t like what we'd talked about.  He said his vision of this and that scene made more sense to him and he wanted it to be like this.  The more we tried to explain to him I wasn’t happy with the ideas that were changed that we all agreed upon, the more frustrated he got and raged back saying we weren’t considering his feelings, we were being unfair etcetc.  Massive drama.  So for me seeing my ideas practically raped into this completely different thing was very hard for me to swallow.   Instead of being completely new, it borrowed heavily on some ideas from the Meet Con clip and I didn’t like this.  I said fine, you love this so much then cool.  Finish the rest without my input and post it.


I don’t know why he hasn’t uploaded it.  He claims to be very proud about it, he loves it, so what’s stopping him from uploading it.  It’s pretty much general knowledge that I DONT CARE what happens with the clip.  I'm not saying the clip is crap.  It’s not. I'm saying it’s not the ideas I wanted to see that we agreed on.  As a creative person it’s a slap to the face, and I don’t really expect anyone to understand the way my brain works with this topic.  The changes altered the feel of the clip.  So for me I didn’t want to be part of it if my ideas were going to be tossed aside.


The facebook spreading rumours etc, I never once posted on my face book that sort of thing.  That’s not my style and majority of the people on my facebook are people who live in my city or relatives, all of which know nothing about my YouTube clips and so wouldn’t know wtf I was on about.  If I mentioned anything in the 'fans of kilplix' group I don’t remember.  But if I did it would have been simple and to the point like it was on my YouTube page when I said I'm not playing with them anymore because me and Austin clash.  I have a thing where when someone asks me a question, I like to answer it.  Which is why I respond to people on my YouTube page.  I'm not going to bring up how Austin interacts with his fans, but it’s usually from his blog only, which he heavily advertises, especially since people hand him substantial donations because they enjoy the videos, another thing I really will totally not get into.


Quick touch on the ‘doing it for the subs’ thing.  Maybe he doesn’t think he does it but he would always load up 1 video a week. This would irk me slightly.  I’d try to push him into uploading more like when we had a really funny play through, but he would say he’s spacing them out to get maximum view counts.  This bugged me so much.  Him removing that clip where for 20min he made fun of people who sent him messages, lost a few thousand subs in the space of an hour or so, and quickly removed it and put up an apology.  He claims to have been happy with that clip. So why remove it.  If I had known about the clip before he posted it I would of told him doing that would be a really stupid idea.  People think most of those that unsubbed were kids.  In my opinion it was more likely to be people in their 20s and older who found the clip tasteless, because I know I certainly did.    As dumb as some of the comments were, these are people who come to your page and enjoy what you do.  I don’t see the need to make fun of them.


Anyway, like I've mentioned many times before I don’t hate him.  I've got no huge issue with him, I may not have spoken with him in months, but that doesn’t mean I hate him.  What I can say is that I won’t be in any more clips period, so asking me to be in them again is pointless.  I like to think I'm an extremely patient person, very understanding, always considerate of others more than myself.  Sometimes more then I really should be.  I've bought Austin and the rest gifts in the past when I was on holidays, specific items from Japan when I was there, other random things like blurays, games, pc parts, this or that.  I love getting people gifts.  It’s part of what makes me who I am.  But there comes a time when I need to think about myself.


I'm sorry Austin finds all this somehow completely alien and surprising to him, despite the MANY times we've all talked in the past about his temper, which he also admits to having, and it usually feels like once we talk about something to him he ends up forgetting it and focusing on himself once more.  I'm sorry if he's had issues in his life over this or that, if he's fragile emotionally, or anything else that makes life harder for him to handle, I understand he has issues and always did my best to step around them and try to support him like the rest of us do.  But there seriously comes a time when I decide for myself that I really don’t feel like being treated the way I've been treated.  I do not suffer half the abuse that was hurled at me during the entire time we played from anyone else and put up with it.  He was pretty much the only exception to the rule.  I'd like that to actually somehow mean something to him but it probably won’t.


The two of us just won’t be playing together anymore.  I'm not after any sympathy or pats on the back or whatever, but it just came down to a point where I was just becoming emotionally exhausted and shattered at the treatment, the outlook the clips made of me, and just everything in between.


I like being happy.  Ignoring shit from normal day to day life, I prefer gaming to be a window for me to be happy in.  So I've made the changes to hopefully go back to enjoying games as normal.  Sorry this was so long and you had to actually read it.  There’s plenty more I could mention, things I've most likely forgotten, but really there’s no point, and most wouldn’t be really understood.  Youtube is also not a massive thing for me.  It was made to show a few friends some clips.  The fact other people started watching them and enjoying them was pretty cool.  But having 1 sub or 10 million subs, it just doesnt even factor into the way I think.  But I'm glad you all enjoy the stuff that goes up, however random and infrequent they may be.  So thanks for enjoying the videos we made and hope you keep enjoying whatever I put up now and then, and the clips Austin makes.

  2. Though I know you more than Austin, he does seem like a pretty nice guy who just has a bit of a temper. I also understand about the high ping problem, its one of the reasons I've stopped playing with people overseas.

    You both make awesome videos (and Jed does too), but it's absolutely stuck-up for people to start picking sides and posting horrible comments to you two... it's completely childish.

    But I do think it's good that you both have posted on your blogs to state that you two are not getting along any more and that you both don't want anyone to start abusing one another and picking sides.

  3. Thank you for posting this, I've been quite curious as to what had happened with you and Austin. However, as you probably know, most of the people that know Kilplix and you don't go to your blogs so they're completely in the dark about this. It would be a good idea to post a video or something to make sure everybody was cool with your decision.

  6. This whole business just really goes to show that the Kilplix and Friends thing has run its course and is sadly coming apart rather messily. It is a slow decline in Austin's videos, each less entertaining than the last, which is doomed to end in ignominy. It's time to jump ship. Icton Entertainment/Yogscast anyone?

  7. i liked your post more... him post seemed a little mad and he was actually taking it out on people by saying things like "don't like it leave" not his exact words but pretty much the same meaning

  8. I was certain that I would lose my eyes reading that many text lol. Could use a bit more paragraphing. Glad my eyes are still on =D.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing that. Must've felt pretty good to get all of that out after a long period of tolerance.

  9. Seeing as this is the end to Kilplix and Friends I want to say thanks for the laughs and huge amounts of entertainment provided by you and your friends.

    Even if they were at you and your friends expense they have kept us in hysterics, so thanks.

  10. I remember Jed telling me about the bad ping problem. And it makes perfect sense. I've had that problem before as well, me being on the west coast of Canada and most of my friends being in the states on the East (not that it's such a big difference likes yours is, but I still notice it quite a bit. I usually have higher friendly fire incidents than most of my friends)

    Also, since talking to Jed, he tells me about some of the clips, and some of the things that you are blamed for were actually his fault. I find it unfair that you get attacked everytime for that. That was just something random I remembered.

    I...urgh. I'm going to really hate saying this, but Austin does have some...issues...he needs to work out. I'm dating Jed right now, I am his girlfriend. I play L4D and other games with Jed as well, being as I love playing video games AND that Jed bought the games for me in the first place. Austin would be so angry that Jed was playing with me rather than him. I even have a facebook message about me 'stealing him away from Austin' (though he has apologized for saying that at least).

    I'm just sick of all the crap going on with the group, and hopefully everyone will just calm down and take a breather.

  11. Well nothing lasts forever blah, blah, blah.

    I was curious but I figured it was none of my business what was going on between everyone. Seeing as both sides have said their part and the idiotic fanboys will continue their flaming regardless, I say let's all just move on and allow this event to fade into the past.

    ReplyDelete
  12. @slashnaricssist I must say I agree with you, It is quite sad what is going on here. Fallouts are just plain nasty, almost like a divorce. I've been observing events for a while and I must admit at being dismayed about all this dirt coming out about all parties involved due to said events. It's an unpleasant truth that some people may act rashly when faced with stress.

    Now that they've taken it to the blogs, I would wager that things are going to unfortunately escalate.

  13. I wonder how Austin is reacting to Con and Jed playing Portal 2, actually...

    ReplyDelete
  14. probably freaking out

  15. I've said this before and I'll say it again, people who don't understand your bad PING should have to suffer with it for once. With a ping that never drops below 800 (that's its lowest at maybe 3 or 4 AM?), I know how horrid it is. Dial-up gave me better PING. I cannot play a single MMORPG due to my PING. I spent years trying to learn what my problem was and finally was taught that it was my high PING, that I had spent hundreds on RAM and video cards when my problem (satellite internet w/ cable unavailable and dial-up destroyed by weather) was 100% unfixable.

    And by the way, I always feel rather honored to have you reply to my posts. There are very few "famous" people who will actually respond. Austin never did, most people never would. I once had Adam Lambert respond to something I said, I flipped out. And a little-known author of a favorite novel of mine empathizing with something I said, that made my day. It reminds me of the humanity of the people. And earns my respect for them.

    To be honest, I found it funny with mishaps occurred in-game. But I understand your frustration now, I'd have been irked as well. It's why I quit all of the MMORPG games I ever played. Runescape, The Endless Forest...entirely unplayable. Maple Story? Yeah right, couldn't even start that one. I'm stuck with Spore. And soon I'm going to be trying out World of Warcraft. I've no idea if my high PING will make it unplayable as well. PvP, obviously, but in-game? I can't be sure. I'm worried I'm wasting money for nothing.

    I do like that you and Jed are still friends. You two always seemed good companions. I always thought playing with you guys would be great, not that I ever could. I did detect a note of cry-baby from Austin though, sadly. I want to respect him still, but he reminds me of this kid on my bus. Whether he knew he was doing it or not, he was making everyone feel sorry for him and making the other person the bad guy. Saying he doesn't blame you for things just makes him seem the kinder soul. :/ I unfortunately don't believe that his hardcore fans will take the time to read what you have said in the past and in this post and realize it's not all black and white.

    Woo, long comment is long.

  16. Most good things don't last forever. I still follow both Austin and Con, loving both of their posts equally. All I can say that some friends should stay friends but their personalities get in the way of the friendship.

  17. I'm glad you posted your side of all of this. Still sorry I had to rant on your youtube page. I happen to be a friend of Slash. Jed used to chase me with Golden Apples on Minecraft... Anyway.. I understand how ping can mess up game play, have had it happen myself, it's one of the reasons I don't host games, I tend to make everyone else have absolutely horrible ping.. Opps. Ranting again.. :o Anyway, nice to see this post. I read all of it. Hope you have a nice day! :D

  18. Con, this was beautifully written, and I must say I do play to watch any and every one of your future videos, to tread lightly, in one of the kilplix and friends videos, Jed mentions "There's that giggle." that is why I love you, that giggle is amazing, and anytime I heard it I was waiting for the molitov to come raining down. L4D is meant for goofing around, when I
    play I toss a molitov every five minutes or so.

    FOR THE TL;DR: Con,love you, giggle more, awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Con, I just want to say you're acting like the bigger man here about this whole thing. He made a post about how he felt and disabled comments on the post. The way he acted in the games was unjust and he should have realized everything you did was the high ping fault, not you doing it on purpose to piss him off. We haven't seen the edited out footage, but I have to believe your side because just being a few states away from a friend I game with makes the pings go horrible when one of us local host. If he uploaded an unedited video we would see that he was treating you wrongly, but he won't do it because he knows he'll lose subs again like when he put out his message to his fans video. I got into Left 4 Dead from watching you and him playing, you were always my favorite.

  20. I still enjoy You AND Austin nonetheless :D
    ..and Jonna Jed, Cody, Tate, Chrissy, Slash. :)

  21. Con, speaking as someone who also left a group of gaming friends due to one person acting in a over the rage manner, I can completely agree with you.
    I would play with my friend, and she would rage over the most petty of shit, and blame me for it, from my ping to me just being a bad player, I was just in it for the fun. She was in it for the winning.

    I like winning, it shouldn't be the goal of a game though. That is the goal of a competition, a goal of a game is to have fun.

    I saw your post about not making videos with Austin anymore and decided I should not take it either, so I decided not to play anymore as well. A similar meltdown happened, ranting to much here.

    In summary, Austin and Con are two different people, the primary fuel of this fire has been from the fanbase who don't have the maturity to let the two deal with it in their own way.

    Con, I respect you, you seem like a pretty decent guy who knows how to take a joke. Austin, I think would do a lot better if he learned to respect his fanbase and just take a deep breath once and while.

  22. Not friends with you on Facebook but this is the only comment I've found that Austin may have taken offense to, from your fan page on Facebook.

    "I got tired of playing with kilplix because he took his role as 'leader' too seriously and would rage non stop if we didnt do as he said. That shit doesnt work with me."

    From your description, I could totally see Austin losing his shit over this, which isn't even that bad. Anyways, thanks for posting this. Reading Austin's dissertation of the whole thing left a bitter taste in my mouth, mostly the part where he veers off into talking about his fan base for absolutely no reason. Austin did seem to enjoy whoring himself out to the fans but had no problem turning his back on them either, especially about the video you mentioned where he bashed several fans. I recall him mentioned apologizing for a video and didn't realize that was it. Way to bite the hand that feeds you.

    I'll admit that I really don't watch his videos anymore and now I realize it's because it was the group that I enjoyed, not just Kilplix. It was a dynamic and fun group to watch with varying personalities. His videos seems boring now to me because... well... I always found Austin a bit irritating but that's just me. I just hope this can be the end of this and you two can go on your own separate ways with your videos and this drama can end, if Austin will let it :S

  23. Seeing all this turmoil is saddening, because I thought you and the rest of Kilplix and friends would last forever. Thats my sad part of this post.
    Good things:You guys got me into Left 4 Dead and I bought Portal 2 becuase of your and Jeds playthrough, and I have rearely had a bbetter time than playing those games. Con, I share your pain in that my Molotovs always spread farther than I think, resulting in me getting kicked out of many games. But you and Jed taught me to have fun not just to win, and tht idea helps me have fun in many games, most notably Black Ops. So thanks Con, for me and all the other fans, I hope you have the best in life, and your virtual life ;)

  24. Wow, long text.. But thanks, it was a good english training for me! ^^ (you surely lost half of your fingers after having post that!!)

    Whatever, I'll continue watching Killplix's videos and your videos and enjoying both!

    And thanks for your awesome blog!! ;)

  26. Well, after hearing both sides, I chalk it up to misunderstandings assumptions, and pride. (And fans who don't know how to drop it)

    As my dad always said, 'Assume make an ass out of U and Me'.

    I still enjoy both of your guys vids. Even with this nasty 'divorce' rearing it's ugly head.

    I'd say don't let it upset you but you seem to be doing an awesome job already. I can feel for both of you and I hope that this ends smoothly and on a good note.

  28. I understood the first time this was brought up what you were trying to get at. I felt it was a little superfluous having to tediously reiterate what was already said, but I understand that some people will choose to only listen to one part of the story and forget the rest. I also understand that some people will choose to continually argue about something that doesn't need to be argued about...for the sake of conflict and drama, the adrenaline rush you get at proving to be right and better than the opposition.

    tl;dr I don't think you had to explain yourself, and I hope that at least half of the people that's been nagging at you will finally back off.

    On another note, you say when you look in a mirror you see the same face you saw 10+ years ago. WHAT'S YOUR SECRET? D:

  29. I've got to say that this post helped explain a lot. I was one of those who asked why Austin took down the link to this blog in his and wondered what happened to the two of you.

    His blog post just made me go 'Con? Spreading lies? Nahh...' I just couldn't fathom you being as 'evil' as Austin depicted you. I didn't mean to call him a liar, but I knew there was another side to the story, knowing Austin's temper, it was likely.

    Con, let me just say that I completely respect your decision and that I would've lost my patience earlier than you have; I applaud you for your patience.

    It's just saddening that you two won't be able to play together any time soon. Both your and Austin's videos (even the recent ones) are very entertaining, and when they involved both him and you and the others...they just rocked.

    I hope that Austin shall reconsider if and when he reads this. If he really wants to be friends with anyone and KEEP them, then he should seriously try to solve or lessen his temper and issues.

    I love the both of ya, you guys are great individually and excellent when together.

  30. I think, and this is just my opinion, that you guys should completely ignore the rumor mill. It is really hard but if you react then trolls will feed off of it and it will just get more out of hand. I'm sure you're both wonderful people but it'd probably better to walk away from the topic as far as the blogs, etc go and eventually the gossip will go stale for lack of new 'material' and it'll pass. That's just me though.

    I'll make this short and to the point. You and Austin need to talk this out. I'm not saying for the two of you to kiss and make up, point of the matter is that you both have made it very clear in your posts that while you both don't wish each other ill-well or hate each other, the two of you shouldn't be friends anymore. But for the sake of whatever friendship the two of you DID share, no matter how close it was or not, you owe it to each other to end this peacefully. Responding to each other's posts hasn't solved anything, just merely added fuel to the fire.

    This is a private matter between the two of you, and while it started as merely a response to a fan's question as to why the two of you haven't been playing together anymore, just look at what it turned into. This has literally become a war between fans of whose right and who's wrong, who to follow and who to ignore, and it has only made the situation between the two of you worse. People watched the two of you play and have fun, and become inspired to do the same. I am one such person, and it saddens me to see how far this has gone. Consider what has been said, both by the posts here on your blog and from those close to you, and try and put this whole thing to rest.

  32. Hi Con. I know I am not in any position to talk to you but hear me out. Every time I meet with a friendship problem, I will always look at the big picture. Is it worth it that we argue and fight? Ok I am not pushing blame to anyone but if we look at the big picture... I see Con,Jed,Cody and Austin hands over shoulders with a smile on everyone's face... With the ground written with anger,flames and maddness.. But it is that smile and that laugh that lighten up the sky... I know it may look differently from your side but from my side I just see a spot of maddness on the beautiful picture.

    This is picture that the people want to see... Even when standing on hell,
    Friends can still make each other smile

    Think of why you have been so patient with Austin, it is because you want to maintain this friendship so you ignore the abuse or You wanted to act more matured and ignore the childish remarks. When people said that you are the ass of the team(Evidence from youtube comment), I think that you are the spine of the team. You hold the group together.

    If one fail, all fails....

    So I suggest some ways to deal with this matter... just like how I deal with mine..
    1. Trash things out, face to face(phone) so you two are see each other's expressions
    2. Ask people to persuade Austin, sometimes he does not see what others see
    3. If all else fails... It will be good to have everyone(Friends including Tate) to meet on the internet and talk things out.
    Tate can also help see things that Austin cannot see

    I know I am not in a position to give you advice but.. here you go :P

  33. Read both blogs, and to be honest Austin just sounds like he has "issues". The whole "Austin/Kilplix character thing sounds like he's bipolar. It's completely understandable to expect the team to have your back in a squad based game. Anyone would get pissed. Cause then its okay, I didn't make it cause of stupidity. Not counting the people who will rage on 360 cause of a missed achievement.

    Good on you for just calling a spade a spade and ending it.

    Also, the biggest question is, Jed has a lady? She must have amazing legs.

  34. Con is 35 years old, Austin is 26(I believe)

    this isn't yur typical "High School Drama" ...these are two Adults...i'm pretty sure they don't need us 8 to 20 year olds telling them to fix a friendship :)
    not to mention they're both in Different Countries with Different TimeZones :D

  35. I honestly can't believe that subscribers would hurl abuse at people. It's rediculous. Don't they understand that they only make the situation worse?

    Anyway, kudos to you Con for saying how it is :)

  36. You're awesome. When you were born, the word awesome was created :).

  37. Thanks for being honest Con, I saw this just now and I did not even realize rumors or anything was going around. I have not been following Austin's blog, pretty much only this blog. I know you don't want sympathy or anything but I really do know where you are coming from. Hope this isn't bugging you too much, have a good day~!

    ReplyDelete
  38. At least you responded a lot more maturely Con then little Austin.
    Looks like Austin lost one subscriber

    (P.S. when he ended "seriously guys,i love youuuuu",he should've known better than write like a girl...)

  39. I hope you can find another Kilplix..
    and upload video about game again

  40. Wow..... exactly 42 comments....


    Ofcourse, I just messed it up by pointing that out. 43 it is =>

  41. I've really felt a a decline in excitement for Austins videos. His attitude has changed from the good old days of "Left 4 Dead Funny Moments". Instead of enjoying the game, the guy focuses too much and the serious aspects of it. Sure, its okay to be a little competitive every now and again, but games are made for FUN, not to treat like real-life scenarios.

    He may claim that he doesn't care about how many subs or views he has, but I'm pretty sure deep down inside, he cares a lot. And one of the main reasons he posted that blog was because the panic of people realizing what's going on and unsubbing him (etc.) was starting to get to him.

    To put it simply....shit hit the fan club.

    I was the one who was running his fanclub over on DeviantART. I just recently left the club and handed over leadership to some random person because I got 'tired' of pretending to like Kilplix whenever I lost my interest in him a long time ago. And that's what I believe a lot of people are starting to do today.

    ReplyDelete
  42. A lot of feelings was put into this I aplaud you for that.

    I might might have already posted about this on your youtube channel but I agree with what someone above said. What you need to do is talk it over with the. And the other friends that I'm sure are affected by this (Jed, Cody, Jonna,) probaly need to give a say in this too.

    Maybe its something he can't help, or he degraded into a control freak, I don't know, but I do know myself. I have Aspergers and one of its aspects is that we perfer if things went our way. I sometimes believe things should go my way and I get annoyed, possibly pissed if it doesn't but afterwards I always think sometimes its better off, and that things don't always have to go my way.

    I may have not have had an experiance in life as much as you had Con, but I know this, this is not worth losing a friend over. I value my friends more than the air I breathe and I rarely get in a arguement with any of them, and when I do, I try to settle it in a way thats best for both of us.

    Anyway this is a long post, but thats all I have say about this. You and Kilplix just really need to talk about this, and try to meed bridges wethier you return to his videos or not.

    The Sun shall rise tommorow!

  43. It is a shame that in the end Austin has control of what we see and what we dont see. But even in some of those clips he comes off as a bit unreasonable so I would hate to see the ones that he didnt want us to see. It would properbly have the same effect as that video about making fun of the fans.

    Its good to see you have no ill will towards him. Im not going to lie if I went through some of the things you did everytime I went to play a game and enjoy myself... well im not as patient a person as you. Its pretty impressive you lasted as long as you did.

    While its a shame that I will not see another great video with Kilplix Con Jed and Cody I respect your decision and I hope the rest of the fans will. It was a fun ride but I can still look forward to seeing yours and Jeds funny videos in the future.

    Good luck in your future endeavours and above all have fun.

    ReplyDelete
  44. "After that he camped at the doorway of where I spawn, opened the door when I did, gunned me down instantly, repeat 7x. I was dead before I could even turn to face him. The rest of that game was played almost silently, Jed and Cody saying nothing Austin handing out instructions to beat the tank. He said something to jonna and she asked me that she heard I was being a jerk in the game. I edited that play through showed her the clip, and not even an apology when she saw what happened."

    Con i must ask you! Please... Please if you would be so kind is to show us this video, I'm not saying your a liar, i believe you! But i think it would be for the best to actually see how Kilplix actually acts, when he's not on camera... Per say!

    The only reason i ask is so we could see just how Kilplix truly treats you in game... Just make a little mini series of all these things he's done to you and refuses to show us... I really wanna see it! But, of course i can understand if you do not wish to... Because it would bring a lot of drama... I just think it might be a good idea so if Kilplix see's this video, he can truly see how he really acts...

    ReplyDelete
  45. I dont have that video anymore. I always delete my clips after we use them in some form or if I dont need it anymore. And I'm pretty sure he's seen it. But yeah, I dont have it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This feels very honest to me. I hope there is no more ill will or whatever between you two.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This whole thing really does pull on my heart strings ;_; Seeing both sides of the story, I can just say that it brings a tear to my eye. I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said. The fans that pick a side usually talk rubbish about the person they like the least. They usually never know what really goes on. Anyways, no one is perfect. If the fans can understand that, then we can go on living our mundane lives.

    ReplyDelete
  48. All the best for ur future Con :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. i understand con, that sometimes kilplix takes on the role of leader and commands everyone around. And during the gameplay he just cut people sentences up, interrupt i mean. of course i get the feeling you two are loggerheads in the game, but that fact just makes the video more interesting u know what i mean?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah. No wait, it doesnt make a game fun when 1 guy pisses everyone else off. Maybe next time you all know someone you cant work with, dont enjoy playing games with, or get into conflict of interest often, just shrug and keep playing/chatting with them. Even if they make you rage quit, go back and keep playing with them because thats the best way to enjoy a game.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Con I know exactly how you feel I play with my friends in greece and i'm in the U.K and they get better connection then me, anyway one time on a custom map, Col'd blood it was (btw Loved that one with your awesomeness *bows* you are the king of awesomeness)
    Anyway I was throwing molotovs at a tank and my friend Ran into the fire Just when I threw it Funny at the time just like how austin ran into yours Knowing it Was there Same thing happened to me, Got gunned down until near death, Got revived But then someone startled a bloody witch and i got killed,

    So I gunned down once i got revived the person who did it, they gunned me down again, afterwards we just moved on,

    Anyway I Can see why you disaggreed with austin, From what you've put He sounds like a total Bullshitter, And your the innocent one, And if he did care about his subs He wouldn't edit out as much clips he would leave them all in

    You on this post have proved YOU'RE The better man then austin, You carried the team when you played with him, Heck I'm sure you still do w/e your on

    Closing statement Austin NEEDS to grow a pair and apologize to you,(that's if he ever does grow a pair)

    Con keep the Laughs coming and we'll keep watching

  52. Hello guys from Greece, i am watching both blogs(con,kilplix)i must say how con reacts and place himself were all of the videos are so funny and really i have spend days to watch almost 95% of them..i was just laughting for 20-30 mins with some momments with con and when i wasn;t good i just repeating when he says ''giveme pills'' and ''as i walk through the falmes i am not hurt, I AM THE FLAME MASTAH!!''ahhaaha those momments are the best :)i am really curious what ideas you had about Meet Jed and how was the video in the end..

    ReplyDelete
  53. Meet Jed clip was going to be very very different. He was practically like an animal living in the woods, stealing stuff, running away from things, just completely wild. I had some pretty classy ideas. I know Jed loved it to death. He was pretty upset this was never completed. It would have seriously blown Meet Con out of the water.

    ReplyDelete
  54. OK thanx for the info :D i liked so much Meet Con and if Meet Jed was so good ... OH CRAP.. i can understand your feelings and why is all this happening now :)

    ps: i never knew about the high pings and that explains a lot of things were Con was throwing a molly and that was going terrible wrong :D

    ps2:If you guys ever come at summer to Greece for vocations u are big welcomed here !!!oh 1 favor when dead island comes out in september make a review or something cause looks freaking aswome

    ReplyDelete
  55. I understand what your talking about here. I have a friend that I have to becareful what I say and the topics actually. To be honest, when I watched you in the clips I thought that was how you were but when I actually started to play the game I noticed how hard it is not to shoot your teammates. At the end I usually have the most friendly fire.

    There's only so much for you can take when it comes to people like that. I'm normally very laid back and try not to disturb the waters when things happen. Even when they're taking things out on me. I recently got to the point where I draw a line and if they cross it I have to defend myself because I can't take the beating nor the Negativity anymore.

    I find it sad that this drove you not to play anymore. A game that was ment to be fun became work and it shouldn't. Games are for helping you to relax.

    I hope you feel better about this and don't let it drag you down. Be happy Con =]

    ReplyDelete
  56. Bravo Con, I applaud you for posting this.

    I've known Austin for many years, way before his videos, and have watched the fame go straight to his head. He's a completely different person now. It's all about the subs, the donations, the fame, and it doesn't matter who gets trampled along the way.

    I still love that stunt he pulled asking for donation money for his "dental work", only to get his tooth cheaply pulled then used the donations to build a new PC. Classic scumbag.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Con, you are THE Man. I enjoyed every video with you. Specifically the Fallen map review. But Austin, I don't know about him. Whenever he would get mad at you for doing something VERY common in a game like Left 4 Dead, he raged. Even going far enough to say that Jed is just like you when he threw a molotov and Austin ran into it. When he said that I though "This bitch.... Con is waaay more awesome than Jed!" But if I was in your shoes and he yelled at me for his mistake, I have ZERO patience so I would've just told him straight up "Stop fucking moving around and stick with me!" Or when he would say "Look out, he's got a molly!" I would've just sighed. So I highly admire you for your patience with him. I also knew from the beginning that he doesn't give a SHIT about ANYONE that watches his videos. He never comments on his channel or any of his videos, and then he has the nerve to thank them for watching them. You don't even talk to those people! Why are you thanking them? Ugh... Anyway, I highly appreciate you Con. You're name sounds like my last name... Con. Khan. LOL and you and Jed always make me laugh with your blog updates. I'm glad you have a life unlike Austin. Cause since Austin probably sits in his room and plays video games there is nothing interesting about him. You're the one with the stories and the funny blog entries.
    So, to you Con, I say thank you for bringing the light to my miserable days. I know that whenever I have bad day at class and come home pissed off and hot as hell, I'll read your blog and watch you and Jed play Portal 2.
    Thanks Con.

  60. Austin seems like a really nice guy but yes I have noticed in some of his videos he tends to lose his temper. However sometimes you need to just buckle down and make a stand, if fall you if you fall down get back up and try again. Look girls do stuff like this all the time (Im not a girl) but guys tend to get along better. Why don't you guys just give it another chance, ask austin if you can get the rights you deserve instead of sitting here and not getting along like 2 old ladies. Just please for the fans, and your friends.

    ReplyDelete
  61. While I see where you're coming from, I dont think you quite understand my situation. This wasnt a one or twice thing. This was multiple over multiple years. Do you actually keep playing with someone who frequently gets under your skin, or even hang out with people you cant blend with? Thats the situation here. Besides, I only mentioned some of the things here not all of them. If I were to mention everything, and that would double this length, no chance in hell would someone be asking me to try again. It would just be door closed as far as everyone is concerned.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Very beautifully written. I was wondering for a while why you were never in the videos anymore (as I always found you and Jed highly amusing), so I'm glad that you have explained everything that could possibly be explained. It gave me some peace of mind to find out what the situation was. You do what you have to do and if the other person doesn't have the motivation to better behavior towards others that can be changed, there's not really any choice but to walk away. Glad you did the mature thing.

    ReplyDelete
  63. This Post actually brought a tear to my eye, as con and jed still are the perfect pair the ying and yang etc, i believe the whole camping and killing u 7 times, the meet jed video (it explains jed so well), i can also see that u wasnt enjoying the L4D2 game, where u had a moment when u had amazing ping u was loving it.
    Games are meant to be played for fun and amusement left 4 dead was one where u can work in a team and have fun, if it was for a serious game there would be leagues and guilds for it.
    Keep up the great videos as they are amazing as it is showing a creative side in u

    ReplyDelete
  64. i find this very sad im glad you had posted your side of this you deserive to be heard con!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I actually read everything and I agree with you 100%. I remember when I first watched a video of you guys. That had to be one or two years ago. Anyway, I enjoyed it because you all were having fun and just enjoying the game, not trying to get the most kills or finish a campaign quickly. I was subscribed to kilplism, but that was at least 7 months ago. As more videos were uploaded, I didn't find them that entertaining anymore. And honestly, in most of those videos, I found Austin to be a little too emotional. Having a high pitched voice whenever someone shot him or making an excuse when he shot someone, I just got sick of it.

    Its funny; when I first watched a video with you in it, I thought to myself: This guy is really crazy.

    But after reading this post, I realize that it was just you being funny. I am not a competitive gamer either. I have been playing L4D and L4D2 online more, but sometimes it becomes a pain because people only care about getting points in versus or getting through an entire campaign on Expert without dying.

    This comment is getting a little too long....

    Anyway, I just want to say that I applaud you for being the better person and not turning this post into an all-out bashing.

  67. Hey Con, i have been watching both of ur vids 4 ages now and wondering wtf happened between u guys, i finnaly found this blog ( through a reply to a fan, which i commend u 4) and it clears up allot of issuses, i also red Kilplix's long post thing 2 and i completly understand your viewpoint, i usually have VERY good ping and when i play L4D, i am pretty good, but whenever i c my cousins in Jordan i end up with +500 ping and completly fail and rage :( The fact that u have put up with that 4 so long and still played is great! but its sad how Austin doesn't seem to ever notice or give u credit 4 the ping issues.

    As for what u said about the Editing, since i make a few L4D vids with, mainly 4 me and my friends, i c how easy it is to manipulate footage and show whatever u want to, u can make out a person as horrible, and urself as perfect, am not saying people do, am saying people can, so i belive that kilplix's vids r not the whole story.

    I love ur vids and love kilplix's old stuff loads, i really like the meet Con vid, especially u in the fire at the beginning xD
    its sad that u guys never were able 2 make "meet the" for the other friends.



    also, i wanted 2 ask, how come people refer 2 u as "Con" but ur steam name, youtube name, blog etc r called Vlahka? its prob some really obvious thing...

    good luck with everything Con :D

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for the post. Well Con is my real name. vlahka is just an alias. Also the meet videos, I have an idea to do the meet jed one as an audio comic. This way Jed and I can make it be like we planned it to be without the butchering. It wont be the same but I think it'll be entertaining enough and the best way to show off what we wanted to do. Well, the ONLY way. Hopefully we can get the time to do this.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I was wondering why I never saw you in his vids. So I checked his blog, read ALL of his words. Felt mad at you, checked your blog (which was a lot harder), read EVERY WORD you wrote, then came to a conclusion. You were the victim (not exactly the wording I wanted but it still means the same). I now see him a bit differently and, to be honest, I still wish to see you and him some how work things out even if it doesn't mean you'll play with him. I don't know; that could just be me being out of the loop for a long time. Thanks for sharing this.

    ReplyDelete
  70. No problem. But thats not going to happen. I was far nicer in this then I should have been, and like I mentioned I only brought up half the reasons. The other half are not game related.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Wow, I'm late to the party! Being anonymous for so long, reading this I just have to comment! I've been an avid watcher to Kilplix for quite some time and just like most, I was plagued as to why you hadn't shown up in his recent videos.

    I had speculations and you just told me how true they were. Honestly, I never watched Austin's videos for him, but for you, Jed, and Cody. In the beginning I was completely fine with Austin, but as the videos progressed I saw (and heard) certain things that lead me to think otherwise. I do believe Austin is a good guy, but he has a terrible temper.

    As time progressed you practically vanished from his videos, followed by Jed and Cody. I just got the vibe that Austin had done something that resulted in this. Reading this confirms it. As you said, video games are for fun! Sure, being serious is alright once in a while, however not every time you play a game should it be.

    tl;dr, keep up with your entertaining videos and blog posts! You seem like a great guy who has gone through unnecessary drama. Stay awesome! (:

    PS: I feel like a dork that I'm posting this months after the initial blog post. XD

    ReplyDelete
  72. Con i srry i was a person who thought u were a dick for not playing but after reading this i see why u stopped, u did have many good reasons to stop

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's good to finally know both sides. Been completely out of the loop for the longest time.
    Sorry to see and find out all of these things have been happening. I honestly have a huge difference of opinion of Austin now. I know you don't want people to take sides or anything, but... :/
    All that you've said seems to fit. And I respect all the thought you put into this post, and the fact that you've addressed this in the way that you did.
    I'm glad that you're no longer in a negative gaming environment and that you're happier (hopefully. right? right? D: ).
    I miss the videos of you guys, but this seems like the best option right now. It's one of those things that.. at least, in my point of view, that one person has been willing, but the other isn't. I've had the same kind of abusive relationship with my dad, and I'd always be told "That's still your father," "That's your dad." And it's the cheap fucking excuse. I would bring up all these things and my family would realize it - fights would always happen over the stupidest things. The only time there wouldn't be would be when we weren't talking. It came to a point where I refused to deal with that anymore. Lo and behold, "peace" happened when we wouldn't talk. As unhealthy as that is, it's straight up what had to be done. I don't know if you agree with that, that's fine if you don't, but what my point was just that I feel that I understand you not going along with people's suggestions to just "talk it out and carry on." The solution isn't that simple - the problem isn't that simple - and the time has passed for that. Now is the time to think more for yourself, straight up.
    Lol, didn't expect to make such a long comment.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thanks for that. And yeah I agree. I'm the same with my sister too. If we dont talk its fine. The minute we start interacting its always leading to an argument. I try to keep her out of my life completely. Cant do much when she comes to visit though. My parents are too gutless to keep her out.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I don't think there is an argument here.
    Which one you wanna be friend with?
    Con who GIVES away gifts to his fans.
    or Austin who TAKES money from his fans.

    Thanks for the gift Con. :D

    ReplyDelete
  76. Con, after reading this post i would say just be yourself.Play the games for fun and pleasure and be happy in what you do.Keep up your videos as well :D

    ReplyDelete
  77. Damn thats a long post! Haha!
    But I can kinda see why you lost interest in L4D after all that.
    But you guys looked super fun to play with and I wished I could have had the chance to play with you all before it all went to hell. (And dont worry Im not gonna beg u or anyone else to be my friend and play games, cause I prefer the Xbox 360 anyway lol.)
    And your right, video gaming should be just 4 fun, L4D especially. I hate having assholes freaking out if I don't go back and save them when a horde and tank is mauling them and the boat arrives in the Hard Rain Campaign LOL!
    Anyway, I never thought you or anyone were jerks. Your hilarious in the vids and frankly you were my fav, along with Jed, then Austin, and Cody.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Wow I actually never knew about this until today. So it literally took me months to find out why you and Austin weren't playing together anymore.

    Anyway, sometimes good friendships just end in a sad way. I don't know if you've kind of progressed the break up if I may say so, but eventually you will have to.

    You're a funny bloke Con and I love you and your videos, so please don't stop doing what you do and keep enjoying your life!

    I have lots of respect for you.
    Good luck with everything!

    Cheers from a Dutch 16-year-old boy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I always thought that you guys (in your L4D videos) were just adopting amusing personalities for the comedy of it.

    Even in the edited videos, it would be a little nerve-racking to play with someone who gets as over-excited and over-reacts as much as Austin does.

    But if that is the way he is, then so be it. And if he's generally a good guy, then great. People are the way they are for various reasons. People decide to do things for various reasons. I guess we can only hope he isn't that intense in real life, or it will be problematic for him.

    Everyone has issues of some kind. It is not for anyone else to judge them, or decide their reality, or the essence of their humanity, based on superficial evidence and hear say.

    Thank you all for the mirth that you have brought to thousands. All things, good and bad, pass in time. Memories (good and bad) and the (blessing/curse) of technology, will keep it alive for that much longer.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I agree with you, Con. Austin DOES have some issues... And people doing this (getting mad at people for occasionaly no reason) disgusts me and im unsubbing from his youtube channel in a second (his videos are getting boring, anyway). And i was watching one of the Left 4 Dead Funny Moments and you said something like "If this isnt a good looking corpse, i dont know what is." and Jed said "Let me see" then he gunned you down and said "It IS a good looking corpse!" and u said "What the hell!" and u sounded really pissed... Im glad iread this and found out the truth. Just letting you know, i have a lot more respect for you than him. Thanks.

  81. you just lost the gameJanuary 12, 2012 at 2:54 PM

    Just kinda read this out of curiosity. I have no intention of taking sides, but I couldn't help but notice the hypocrisy of saying "people hand him substantial donations because they enjoy the videos, another thing I really will totally not get into." and having an advertisement to donate to you on the side of the blog. I don't think it's wrong to ask for donations because even though you're making videos about games, it's hard work and you deserve to be paid for it. But it's very hypocritical of you to call Austin out on that when you yourself do it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Not really. Theres a difference with mine compared to his. I've got a little funny message on the donate button. I dont expect donations and I dont ask for them. I've had 1 donation just to give you an idea. Austin on the other hand makes countless requests for them, has messages on the donate button that dont reflect reality (ie owing the same amount of money for months despite getting shitloads of donations) and I dont make videos on youtube asking for donations like he does. I'm also not playing any pity cards to encourage donations with this or that made up plight. Me and him, completely and utterly different.

      Alright, I apologize for making that assumption. Kind of a context misunderstanding. In all honesty I'd be happy to donate to you purely because you're a funny guy and you make some good content and I think you deserve it. I just misunderstood and thought you meant something along the lines of Austin shouldn't be receive donations for what he does period. But I agree that begging for donations isn't the way to go.

    2. Thanks for the offer, but I'm sure you're in need of the money like all of us. I only upload videos for fun. Its why my content is a little different to his. He just plays games records, and uploads as he plays. I'm not sure how people find that entertaining. I like to be a bit creative. Reading the comments is what I really enjoy from the clips. Some funny stuff gets posted.

      Delete
  83. I'd also like to add an extra bit. By 'get in to', I mean going into detail about the whole amount of donations he gets and how he gets them. But yeah, different context.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Besides, Austin's L4D clips are now getting a lot less views, becuase their so boring. You were basicly the star. But now, its like 'quiet' without you. But I think you dont really care, just going along with life and what not. Austin, I think of him is 'greedy' and 'too serious', I think you should tell him its just a game, not fking the end of the world. Besides, Austin is only living off of donations. Doesn't he even have a job? I saw some clips involving your job, and your job looks great. But, for the record, Austin's channel only got so many subs and views just because of you.

    1. There was a time when I stopped playing with him for about 2 months. The others kept telling him to relax and enjoy himself in games if he expected me to play with them again. They were also getting a little weary of him too. But nothing changed, and I have zero interest in trying a third time. The others left him too a little while later.

      Austins got a job. He transcribes stuff at home and gets paid for it. So he can choose to do nothing or choose to work. And the donations and money from youtube/blog etc, they arent anything to sniff at. He's been handed thousands by fans. I'd just be guessing on the amount but I seriously doubt everything added together is under 8grand, definitely over it. I'm actually the one whos not working at the moment lol

    2. Yeah, I think Austin got some Raging problems. It's like, Austin is making his own fairy tale world and two weeks later, hes in therapy. lol. I'm not trying to make Austin look like a bad person, I enjoy watching clips of you guys play when im bored. (I don't troll you guys lol) Besides, how did you and Jed make a bonding relationship? And how did you meet Austin?

    3. My post was made during the time jed and cody still played with him so I didnt want to say anything bad in it in case he hassled them to stop talking to me, because he would. But since they arent friends with him anymore I can safely say yes, he is a bad person.

      We all met through a gaming forum about 10 years back or so. And no, cant say which lol. Me and Jed we just both try not to take the world seriously so we meshed pretty well.

      Delete
    4. Wait, the 5 of you all met on a gaming forum and Jona or Jonah (Whatever her name is) and Jed n Cody are not friends with Austin too? I took your side because your the only person to realize how retarded Austin is. I would understand why Austin would be mad if he failed something, but not for only losing 2% of health.

      I don't think your some kind of screwed up person for liking toys, I collect WW2 figurines and craft tanks n stuff. Do you and Jed meet together face to face sometimes? Like, visit eachother?

      Delete
    5. Oh, she's still friends with him for whatever reasons she has. I remember years back I had a friend who used to collect those too. I'd help him put together these complex model planes and tanks. Heaps of fun. We took all of these one day and made our own figure wargame. We used the tiles on the floor to represent move turns, and each unit could move a certain amount etc and we had this huge complex combat rule set for it. Lots of fun.

      Delete
    6. Oh, That reminds me of something. My friend used to do RC tanks, but he stopped because they were too expensive. RC tanks is like a mini Real Life war, with actual damaging and stuff. Me, Myself, play L4D and 2. I dont really play with friends, I just play custom maps and review them or screw around on modded servers.

  89. Honestly, I followed Austin for his videos, but very recently, I checked up on yours and found myself laughing just like when you all played together. Sadly, Austin isn't that funny without you guys. It's not that they're bad, they just don't have that funny fast paced action you guys had. I'm like you, always putting up with everyone's shit and have terrible PING when I play and people always seem upset with me about everything. I'm in the game and it's shitty connection, they go after me for my connection and if I leave so they can play they yell at me for "Rage quitting". If you would think about it and some careful planning with Jed, you guys could probably try to make that Meet Jed video you wanted. just a thought though.

    1. I'd stop playing with people like that. Then again I prefer single player games mostly. And unfortunately there would be too much effort involved in making the jed video and we both know we dont have the time or energy for it. Austins fine since he does nothing all day every day except play games. Jed and I are a little different. He has to work. I'm currently not working but hoping that will change really soon.

    2. I don't know if you'll read this or not, or even care about some random dudes question, but why did Jed and Cody stop playing and talking to Austin? I mean I respect both sides of the story, not that I'm a man who chooses sides, because
      I don't believe in doing that, I think choosing sides is ignorant. Anyway about my question, that just makes me think, we're any of you truly friends with Austin? Trustworthy, and respectable, or did you just drop him the first chance you got? Again not taking any sides, and sorry for the long question. Have a good day. :)

      Delete
    3. I remember reading how you said Austin makes thousands on YouTube revenue, ads, etc, and recently, he said that he's currently in deep financial shit. I guess that goes to show how unstable of an income YouTube revenue can be? (Especially since the majority of his subscribers came from his L4D vids, which he doesn't do at all anymore.) Same goes for transcribing things, I reckon.

      Delete
    4. I read every reply made in this blog. Auto emailed to me the moment its posted which is extremely handy. As for why Cody and Jed stopped playing with him, I'd say they were along the lines of my own. Regarding austins money issues, he seems to have some expensive equipment and every single new release game. I'm sure he's making plenty. Generally when he makes posts like that some of his long time readers end up donating to him. Usually on par with his repetitive yet not very accurate cries of having no friends etc.

  90. This is a long, long time after the initial post, but I feel like I have to say just something. Years ago my brother and I found "Kilplix N' Friends", and we fell in love. I think he and I watched "Meet Con" hundreds of times. We just knew that whenever we watched a video of yours, laughter would follow.

    After awhile, I sort of fell off of YouTube, and got consumed in school. Since I'm on break right now, I recently went into nostalgia mode and started watching channels I used to watch. I found kilplix again, and I was sad to see that you had somehow disappeared from his videos. I saw a comment on a video of this matter, and found myself here.

    I read your whole post, and I have to say that I'm a lot like you personality wise. I've also have had fallouts with friends. Although, they weren't this intense or anything, they came from the same source: personality clashes.

    I do remember watching the videos, and thinking Austin as a control freak. He never made me laugh, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that. It was mostly you, Jed, and Cody. Austin rubbed me the wrong way, and it was difficult to even listen to him for a video. The way I found his channel again was through the Q and A videos you did, and he acted like an ass in the first 30 seconds of it!

    I don't know, I'm not exactly adding to anything that any one has said already, but I do think that removing yourself from him was the best. You can't control the fans, you can only control yourself.

    Good luck to you, and everything you do.

  92. Some of the comments made here seem a bit... Hell I don't know. But why are people choosing sides? Hell the whole point of being a fan is to follow the people you enjoy. Even if they have a fallout for a good reason. Now I've been subscribed to Con and Kilplix ever since they were making videos, and I'll follow both of em till the end. If you people are not willing to follow people you enjoy, what kind of fans are you?

  93. Hey there con, I've been a huge fan of u and Austin, and I still am! :) I just felt kinda depressed that you guys fell out, but I guess I can understand it, considering Austin does have his flaws, which you mentioned.. But I was just wondering, why does it seem like, in your recent comments/replies to the people commenting on this post(around after 2012, because that's where I started reading the comments :P), you seem to be harsher, maybe even angrier, when you talk about Austin? I may just be reading too much into it, but for example, in one reply you said that Austin's a bad person, though you mentioned in this blog post that you feel Austin's a good person.. I'm not taking sides here, I just wanna know because its kinda bugging me because I love both your videos..

    Anyways, sorry for the long post for this question! :X Hope you'll have a good day, and I'll be looking forward to your next video! :D

    It's approximately what Austin earns from his partnership and shows graphs on views and subscriber increases and decreases. So he makes on average $25 to $232 a day, $9k to possible $84k a year, and he has the fucking nerve to beg his fans to pay for his living while shamelessly displaying over his donate button that its for his rent? He is one of the lowest people I have ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I read every comment. And yeah, he makes plenty. Dont forget the frequent donations hes given. Its usually a steady $500 a month easy from those, sometimes more. Makes you wonder how someone can do nothing but play games all day and work maybe 4 days a month and still afford every new game release, yet complains about his life. Meanwhile plenty like us are clawing our way through life with need of money. Love it.

  100. Why leave on such a bad note?

    Me being a fan of BOTH sides of this argument, I need to throw my two cents in.

    Why don't you, or Austin just get over this? It's been like a year.

    I'm not saying play games together, or make more youtube videos, but for Christ's sake, life is too short for these petty (don't mean that as an insult...) arguments. Why don't you, Austin, Jed or Cody man up and work things out? If we only live once, why hold grudges.

    I feel sympathy for both sides of this conversation, but to be honest, Austin does have it worse. I mean think of what's going on. You, Jed, and Cody left, Austin. All he had at that time was Joanna, and Tate, now Joanna is too busy to do anything with him. Hell if it wasn't for Tate, I don't think Austin would have any strength at all. I don't mean to say you have not suffered any kind of pain from this, but it's obvious Austin suffered worse.

    Think about this: All three of you were his friends. Jed obviously being his best one. You and Austin fight, and you two stop talking. Then, for like no reason, Jed, his best friend, and his brother just leave. Who do you believe has it worse? You, or him?

    Just talk to him, or at least convince Jed or Cody to. Because you all might not notice, but I do. He is getting worse.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I appreciate and understand what you're saying. However I did mention that I only brought up 'some' of the reasons why we all stopped talking to him. I can assure you Jed didnt stop being friends with him for no reason. I'm very sure there are people you've known in the past who crossed a certain line and you stopped talking to them. I mean we dont keep every single friend we've made since we were 5. And trust me, he doesnt have it worse. He has plenty of people he plays and chats with every day, he makes well over a grand a month with only a few hours of work a week or two, sometimes far less, and plays games all day in his own place. I assure you he's dozens of steps better off than myself or Jed. He just plays the victim far too often because its easier to get attention that way.

      Thanks for reading, appreciate it!

    2. yeah I was wondering about that today too actually 'cause it seemed like Jed and Cody stopped being friends with him out of the blue for no reason back then. I guess not though, It sucks that things had to end the way they did but if it was as sour as it made you guys feel I guess it was inevitable, friends come and go sadly like you said. Oh btw are you, jed, and cody still friends with Jonna?

  104. Hello Con! I have read this before, like 1 year ago. And my friend hasn't watched any videos about kilplix since 2010. I first told him that you and Austin weren't making videos together anymore, and he wouldn't believe me. When i linked this to him on steam, he thought is was basically bullshit. He knew even though austin was an emotional guy, but he should atleast take games "Less serious" and put his friends first in any Gaming situation. Yes.... Austin may have acted like a 12 year old kid, saying "It wasn't considering his feelings", he should have atleast considered working this stuff out. I watched his video on how he met everyone, and my heart sunk. It's sad to see a wonderful group break up in an instant. Tate, Lavren, and Chrissy are ok, but it's just not the same without the old group. Was it tough on you at first?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What was tough was suffering him as long as I did. Like I mentioned before it wasnt just the gaming stuff that made me lose my patience. There were things in the background that I cant mention because its personal stuff regarding a few other people. Theres just things you dont do. But then there are people with zero morals and selfishness. I dont hang with people like that.

      And dont feel too bad for him. Hes got a massive fan base and can afford to buy lots of things and live on his own from all the money he makes from donations and youtube. Wont be long before hes playing with actual famous youtube personalities like say totalbiscuit etc, and he'll still bitch and complain even after that. So yeah, spare your pity for someone more deserving. His lifes pretty good.

  105. I read everything. I didn't think it was too long (maybe because it was pretty interesting). For the record, I actually did consider you a sort of ladies man. It might've been the accent.

  106. Recently came back to this post because something similar happened in my gaming friends group. We decided we wanted to try and become a "youtube group" of sorts (not unlike you lot were now that I think about it) where we'd post silly/funny gaming moments and playthroughs. People got excited and ideas were shared and everyone was in good spirits because of how much fun it was gonna be.

    Then everything went tits up when our self appointed project leader (who is nearly identical to Austin as far as personality flaws go) did nothing to get the project go anywhere but down the toilet. What was supposed to be a fun gaming project among friends quickly turned into an us vs them situation. A situation none of us wanted and three of us wanted to prevent. Sides were taken and the project and group died before it got off the ground.

    The friction between you and Austin is eerily similar to the friction within our group. It's disheartnening

    ReplyDelete
  107. Before you read this, just be warned it's kinda long, shows I'm kinda selfish to which I admit it's my worst trait of me, and is somewhat confusing. If you can't reply just for one reason or another, I am totally fine with it. I just wanted to post at least my first thing I wanted to say.


    I'm a fairly old fan of Austin, probably joined right after, well, the "breakup" I suppose you would call this situation. Not that I am a "fanboy" of what Austin makes, but I truly did love the Kilplix and Friends thing with Left 4 Dead. I truly liked the character that each person individually defined in the videos, such as you being the Molotov guy, not to dismiss the whole ordeal about Austin and you with the ping problem. Anyways, I am here firstly to say that I appreciate you explaining what had happened; I had no knowledge of what had happened and this post helped at least to make sense of what happened. I truly liked the videos and people who were in them as a whole.

    Secondly, I'd like to ask a question that relates somewhat to this subject of gaming groups. Me and my friends have created a gaming group. Obviously, it starts out like any other gaming group (mostly) with vibrant ideas that we would like to do, and record for everyone else to enjoy. Anyways, to cut to the chase, I have my original YouTube channel that I made wayyy back before the group idea. I joined this new group channel because two of the three friends (the third is the group idea/maker) wanted me to join, but, I also want to be my own "figure" so to speak with my old channel. So, I'm essentially stuck between my want of being my own YouTuber "figure" and being in a group. Personally, I feel like my selfish side wants to be my own figure, but that's human nature at work honestly. At the same time, I don't want to offend my friends by letting them down by breaking away. Also, as an added "bonus" (insert sarcasm), I feel that this topic with the group maker/creator about having my own channel alongside with the group's channel is a touchy subject and I really do not want to offend him as he tends to... take things with a little more energy, "over react" if you will. Lastly, I don't want my friends thinking I am being selfish as I stated earlier, but with a decision like breaking away, someone is bound to think that way. But, I feel that I can't seem to put my full energy into a group just because of those selfish reasons either. I know it sounds selfish with this whole predicament, but I am trying to be considerate of both my options and outcomes. If anything, I would be fine if everyone was a little bit angry with one another rather than having it boiling down and severing ties. I truly don't know what to do and if you can give me advice, I would really appreciate it. From what I read from this post, I see (or at least believe to see) that you are a far more considerate person than I am so that's why I am asking. I understand that this situation may not exactly the same, if not completely different, but, I would just like some input on how to approach this. Anyways, enough with this short story, my fingers hurt.

    1. Sorry about the late reply. The auto feed only JUST sent me this as 'new'. Useless site. My advice could be a little off since I dont see any problem with what you want to do. You having your own channel shouldnt even be a problem. I mean you can upload group games on that channel and single player stuff on your channel, or games with other friends that arent part of that original group. For me though if they have a problem then they're not worth wasting time with. Mind you I find youtube tedious to the extreme. Always debating with myself whether to just stop wasting my time with it or not. The way youtube works its not for small channels any more. They only push the big channels. For example, where once my L4D clips used to get over 1k views in a couple days, now they average out to a few hundred after a couple weeks. Theres something wrong with that.

      But yeah, I say do what you want and if your friends have issues with it then time to break away. Playing games should be fun. Not feel like a forced job.

  108. I still watch some videos from the good ol' days. My heart still sinks when I remember this "feud" though, specifically how toxic the fans of both sides are. Even before this whole thing exploded people were constantly making demands in the comments.

    I recall Austin posting a few screenshots on his blog showing dozens of private Youtube messages interrogating him about L4D and the rest of the "Meet X" series, demonstrating some kind of warped self-entitlement the community possessed.

    So yeah, not picking sides here, just reminiscing, really. I still can't help but feel that everyone somehow exacerbated the whole thing by constantly pestering both of you, whether it be through Blogspot or Youtube.

    Whatever the case may be, I still mourn Kilplix n Friends to this day.

    When I was in school I was with a group a friends for only one month until I stopped hanging out with them because they were dicks. So how did you last this long with Austin.

    1. Mainly because of Jed Cody and Jonna. I enjoyed playing with them and if I wasnt there then the abuse would be directed toward one of them. Theory was proven correct once I was fed up and refused to interact with him ever again as shortly after Jed and Cody stopped playing with him.. I also have thick skin so I lived with it for a while mainly for the youtube channel. All I really achieved in the end was to help austin cement a decent income for himself through his channel and frequent donations from the fan base via his over exaggerated never ending depression that he purposely uses when in need of extra funds.

    2. You mean that, If you aren't in the game when Austin is hosting or playing, they would get the abuse?

      That is sooooooo uncalled for, immature and unfair of him. :(

  112. Finally read this. After 3 years, sorry it took me just now, Con.

    I rewatched the vids, especially your Friendly Fire vids and you're right. Austin has an anger problem. Hopefully, it ain't as worse as mine. But... Him lashing out on you every now and then... Just doesn't feel fair, right and dignified. He should know that your PING is 'shit', as you've said numerous times back then, and he should just stay cool with it.

    Been playing L4D and L4D2 for 5 - 6 years now. Both games haven't bored me yet, its true what you said that 'L4D is game for everyone to enjoy, have some fun and laugh, not to take it very seriously' (Unless its Versus or Survival). He should just take some time to chill, not to take his anger on you, but sadly it was all poured on you for no reason. Me and my friends love you, Cody, Jed, Jonna and Austin back then. You guys were an Awesome gang. Thanks to Austin's "sudden outburst" about you, you guys cracked and moved on.

    Its good to know you still play the game along with Jed, Anzel, crazy girl, Andey and Royce. Your new group makes my day, never finished a day without watching your vids (Still watching your "Blood Woods Apocalypse" gameplay). My friends don't watch your vids, but I still do and will. As for Austin, not much to say really, just hope his issues are settled and he can finally take some time to relax and calm down. For Jed, if you're reading this, thanks for being a 'great teammate' to Con. For your new group, hope you guys have a ton of fun and lolz. For you, Master Con, thanks for being a great player, an awesome guy and thanks for the laughs, hope to see more L4D vids of yours, whether they're good or not, they're still cool. May your Awesome Balls of Fire shine on on your fans, friends and family forever!

    1. lol thanks! Glad yuo enjoy my videos. Though I must let on a little secret. After a few more games I plan to upload I'm going to start winding down and post something once in a blue moon like my youtube channel was before in the beginning. It's just too much time and effort editing videos and uploading for such little I get in return. I've been considering it for the past couple years but I think I'm finally done with youtube. Others can afford to keep it going because they get a pretty good amount of money from it. I get pretty much nothing lol. Its not worth so much effort on my part.

    2. Does that mean you're gonna post anymore L4D vids?

      If you are, are at least gonna post some here?

      I forgot to mention, the only things that I like about "Kilplix N' Friends" back then was Your's and Jed's funny mishaps, accidents, friendly fires/gests and Austin's pansy-like screams.

      I remember the "Night of Typical Fails #3" where Jed shot a Propane at you, where you two told each others POV of it, also wit h Austin's screaming when he was being chased by that Tank on that you guys played, what was that map again?

      Anyways, if you are gonna stop posting L4D vids are you still gonna play the game regardless if you stop posting or not? Just curious about that...

    3. If I ever play L4D I'll probably record it, though that doesnt happen too often. Hard to get everyone on at the same time. And I dont know what that map was. They're all a blur to me lol

    4. Its just cool to see you as the nice guy we all know. Taking in all that abuse, but soon expressing how you feel about all of it, all the experience, its just so awesome to know you managed to get back up, start over and enjoy all the little things you have around you. This is why a lot of people like you, because you're being who you truly are (unlike Austin).

      You, Jed and the rest have inspired me sooooo much. In the past, in the present and I know, in the future. Keep shining, Con!

      Also, can you recommend me a recorder where I can record the games I play, I am currently using Bandicam.

    5. I use Fraps. Tried a few other ones over time but this is the easiest and best one for me. It saves in huge file sizes though so would be a good idea to get a spare drive just for recording. Depending on the type of game you're playing, an hour goes anywhere from 150gb to 200gb.

      Also I'm going to have to deny the steam request sorry. I like to keep my list extremely small. However you're free to send me private messages through the blog or youtube. :D

    6. Thanks, and oh by the way. I forgot to share this to you, Austin and the others when you guys reached 9k subs. I just remembered to upload this when I rewatched the "L4D - how many subs?" vid from Austin's channel. Sorry, Im forgetful sometimes... i made this years ago, as a sort of present to you guys for your Achievement! :D

      Thanks to the "Meet Con" video, i got look at what you guys looked like, sort of. Its kinda messy, lol, but I just hope you, Jed and your new group likes it. Also Austin, cuz I shared it with him as well.
