To lessen the speculation as to how the league ended, I will explain my viewpoint on the issues.
With the DDoS attacks on HoN the league lost 90% of its activity. We scheduled a meeting with the various admins to work through the issues we faced and how to move forward, few showed up.
I always regarded chicharito as a friend through the entire operation, however he often was in a bad mood and I had to deal with his rage. Many decisions made by chicharito while he was in a bad mood caused a decline in The Fragment, mostly from the lack of professionalism he showed on a variety of issues. Chicharito kicked breakycpk from a match after 4,000 people were watching it. Many were enraged after chicharito made swindlemelonzz an admin. In my honest opinion I think melonzz did a fine job as an admin however it casted a negative image on The Fragment because of the discontent many have with him over getting people banned.Originally Posted by Chicharito
In addition to those issues, we repeatedly faced issues with our bots. Quakenet repeatedly G-Lined our bots and denied our applications for an increase in clones.
Yesterday I had a talk with chicharito about the problems we faced and he said a talk with AngryTestie caused him to want to shut the league down. I told him we could work through the issues and drafted a post for the forums. Then we played HoN together and he fed himself to Kongor after I picked Legionnaire and died because he didn't call missing. After that he raged at me and talked trash about me, at which point I told him I didn't want to deal with him while he was acting like this. The next day he shuts down the league and tells me ingame. I ask him to give me the bots so I can keep The Fragment running. He said no and wouldn't explain why, I told him it would be the right thing to do after everything I did for him, he still wouldn't explain why.
I still maintain my ownership of The Fragment's website, which I may or may not use in the future.
I would like to give my thanks here to all of those who helped us make this a great place.
Bart13t - Amazing admin and friend who was with me through thick and thin.
se - Another great admin and friend with me to the end.
M0tif - Another great friend and administrator.
Benjy - Good coder, nice guy even though I have only spoken with him on a few occasions.
BreakyCPK of HoNcast - For helping us get the word out back when we were shoutcasting. For remaining composed after the EG vs. MSI ordeal.
I am currently working with a few different organizations to bring a new evolution of the fragment, I will announce when I have that ready to launch.
tl;dr = Chicharito is mad and quit after a talk with AngryTestie, HoN downtime killed the competitive scene and new S2 league kills the thought of a rebirth.

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
The good guys dressed in black, remember that, just in case we ever face to face and make contact.
I wonder why it's in your interest to confirm the image of Chicharito that a lot of HoN players have atm. You could have just left those parts out if he's your friend. >_>
"I've been trapped in here for one hundred years.
Blood, women and drink have been my only vessels on this vessel.
Is there a way out, now?
Great friend horizon bring me back to port."
Can i ask where i told you testie made me do this? all i said to you was that i had a conversation with angrytestie about how we could rebirth thefragment and he just gave me some constructive feedback, that's all.
Queue for TMM on a 1500 with 4 other 1500s and play against 1500s, with the unwritten rule of no confrontation with the opposing team until at least 35mns have passed... While typing /commercial every 8 minutes. The entire time maintaining a stellar 55% win percentage against said 1500s.

ps. after reading this post I don't see any reason to make it other than being mad at chich or just wanting to stir up more drama. a simple "frags over thanks to these admins" would have been much better.

What was this EG vs MSI ordeal with Honcast? When Breaky was denied casting by some admin from Fragment? I remember reading something about it but didn`t pay much attention.
KingRaven was also the only one that told you what the **** is up, crybaby. The heat got hot in the kitchen once you spoke up, and you couldn't do anything but reach for the fire extinguisher.
Kid can't even properly handle Yoda in-lane without calling S2 customer support for IP checks during the match. "IS THIS MSPUDDING? YES I"D LIKE TO CREATE A CUSTOMER SUPPORT TICKET I BELIEVE [EG]YODA MAY BE DIRTY RINGING AGAINST ME BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER LOSE.... CALL BACK NUMBER? OH IT GOES TO MY HIRED SWINDLEMELOZ CUSTOMER SUPPORT IN INDIA - NUMBER IS ON MY STREAM THAT I CLAIM I MAKE $25 AN HOUR ON." rofl $25 an hour I can't believe when you whispered me that you make that off online gaming rofl rofl rofl lok at this weasel big lying rofl $25 an hour streaming and groveling for donations like a poor turd. I'll donate you a barrel to warm your hands over in the winter if you need it to game with.
Makes a team, then gets embarrassingly 2-0'd against OK with the most disgusting high-level magmus play imaginable. That hero requires a type of gameplay you're too stupid to achieve so stick to crying for lane wards and AOE triple stack jungle farming. Euros with half your ego outplay you in big matches and you cry about individual talent rofl bro Era/H4nn1/Overpow are better than everyone on your ****ing team (and I like most people on your team, so I'm not trolling), and I can't remember the last time they claimed any bullshit about KD/OK that wasn't true get some humility dipshit you're rubbish past 5 heroes.
As I said I think you did I fine job as an admin, you seemed like a good guy every time we talked and you gave us good advice. Honestly I missphrased that paragraph, I had another example in there before I mentioned you and somehow it got deleted, I will edit it.
