I started AEM here around November last year. My friend said to hop on, mainly to play Zombies. I loved it. A great experience, it was. Next, my friend said to come onto Factions (Which was called "PvP" when I was playing it). I didn't find it that fun at first, until I started raiding. We would DESTROY the base entirely, and to hear the rage in the enemy's voice was satisfying, yet terrifying. I kept doing this, until the very day Factions reset. Along with many other people, I was devastated. All the work that my friend and I worked on, all gone. Another sad thing that happened, was my friend left AEM and was to never come back. This made me upset, until I made some other friends on the server. Originally, it was @hlghwnt and @ironbolt1 who I first got to know. I would hop on every day to talk and play with them. We had a BLAST, raiding people and making bases. I made more and more friends, which amounted to my 150 contacts on Skype. I was in love with the server, and then I was encouraged to apply for staff. I never thought I would have gotten in, but one day, I got a message to hop on TeamSpeak for a second. I came on to see what the deal was, and he started telling me about all the commands and rules I had to follow. I was listening, not knowing what was going to happen, and then : " I am going to promote you to helper now, congratulations! ". I was ELATED! My dream came true, and I was on AEM whenever I could go on. After a long, long 5 months, I got a message on Skype from @aCookieGod. He asked me If I was free, and I replied "yes". He told me to hop on, me not knowing that this was going to be a very happy moment. When I got on, I'm greeted by all the players saying "Gratz" or "Nice Light!". I didn't know what was going on, until I looked at my name in chat. I had been promoted to moderator. If I was happy when I got helper, I was OVERJOYED when I got mod. Now, you'll see me on Factions, happily helping people and catching hackers. Thank you for reading my AEM Life story, and I hope to see all of you people in-game!
