Even though iv had my share of killing yall from the sky for years and being shot down, its been fun and i love all of you. the whole ceiling now is a repelling magnet that pushes vehicles away from it, preventing me from flying. plus they shortened all the ceilings down to maybe 30 ft in the air which also sucks for not only me, but for people who like boosting high up for fun in bedlam. i understand the copter was an exploit and ultimately im wrong for killing from the sky, but i was the only one doing it after the update 2 years ago that killed all the copters before. i had to create the new way to fly the copter after that. so they watched me fly the new way for this past 2 years and added other stuff to nerf that too like (shortening only SOME ceilings). but this update takes the cake and completely ruined flight and seemed geared towards ME specifically because WHO ELSE IS FLYING A REAPER COPTER BESIDES ME? ID LIKE TO KNOW AND MAKE THEM MY BEST FRIEND but no, that wasnt the case. i was the last one left flying the copter. i just think its funny how they watch ONE person fly and nerf stuff and spend time to make the ceilings into repelling magnets just because of me. i feel like a self centered A-hole for saying “oh they did that cuz of me” but im actually convinced this is true because of the little details theyve added. im sure if one of the devs come across this post theyre gona laugh and get a kick out of me finally leaving lol. iv made so many good friends and arch enemy trolls while fighting with the copter as my only vehicle. im nothing without my copter. iv enjoyed playing on a different field than the ground vehicles because i honestly hate driving around on the ground and wont return to crossout unless they change it all back (which theyll never do). the skill it took to pilot the copter grew along with upgrading my parts to make the copter lighter and more powerful and it was quite the journey, and over the years cost me thousands of dollars (literally). through writing this whole paragraph iv felt so many mixed emotions from sadness to almost some sort of peace because im departing from a game iv loved and hated for years. the only thing i had left in this game was the fact that i felt unique and was the best reaper copter that ever lived lol. i went outside the maps and visited the clouds all the time and was exhilarating. now i can spill the beans since they patched ALL the holes in the walls now. but yes you were able to go outside the map secretly and fly allll the way up to see a beautiful view. it felt very special. there were countless times where i would feel depressed and hate this world so i would go outside the map very high up to the clouds to look at the view then kamikaze to the ground from there. its so quiet in the clouds, very peaceful. it felt like a different game because its a side of the game that only a hand full of crossout players have seen. you can see old videos of the clouds from some years ago on my super dead youtube channel “bigyadam”. its so hard to say goodbye to crossout, but after all the countless nerfs on this game and the realization that its geared towards money making and has no regard for the players, that factor makes it MUCH EASIER to leave. im mainly going to miss my copter. ever since i had the copter i called it “the golden eagle”. im forced to depart from it. the copter truly felt like an extension of me. i love flight in general. i remember 2 years ago before the main copter nerf that got rid of all of my copter friends, i would be proud to kill from the sky with the golden eagle. like a bond. lol. then they nerfed my poor eagle. it was dead for months and they killed the other copters. there were times i would hop online again to see if they un-nerfed the eagle and they didnt. so i kept trying to fly to the ceiling for months with the reapers being SUPER unsteady, until i reached the ceiling and i realized,… i was sticking there. i was beyond shocked because i was in grief for awhile. but the copter stuck to the ceiling because it was being stabilized by the ceiling. so i boosted around and stayed in the air. i then realized that my golden eagle has resurrected and so have all copters, if only they knew to make their copter 3000kg and reach the ceiling. that was the new way to fly. but after spreading the word, no new copters were created still, and i was left being the only one to fly the copter on the norm. so iv spent this past 2 years flying the new way and had so much fun with my eagle. right after the copter came to life again, i posted on reddit hoping the devs would see it. it was a video of me flying and killing, rubbing it in their faces after they made that snarky poem about nerfing the copters here on their website. YES they literally did that. it was because me and my copter group were super cocky, so they knew that, they did the nerf, and displayed a snarky short poem about us. i found it hilarious because it was personal at that point. but after enjoying flight for 2 years after their nerf, they got the last laugh. because they killed my eagle again today. ill return someday if they un-nerf the ceilings but until then, RIP to the golden eagle and me as its pilot, the one whos been shooting you from above.
