Ah yes, the win-loss record. That's why I hung out on the CBUB.

That is just one thing that made CBUB cool

Two Battles for CBUB, 3 UWTs, a spot on the top creator list.  A lot of good times, some not so good but I will miss this place.  That said I think I've got one more match in me.

EF was actually the first forum site I've ever joined. This site was always special to me. Joined this site when i was only 14/15 years old. Man that was a long time ago.

Peace out everyone.  Thanks for the memories serge.  I really loved this site.  Thanks for all the free work.

 

I want to say bye to the people that made this site fun for me.  You know who you are.

So far none of the potential new places sound anywhere near as good as CBUB. The whole system here is great. I don't want to see this site go at all.

Heh Vice. Let me put it to you this way, I'm developing something secretly, but it is far from finished, so for now, you should probably just sign up for any of the new places.

This is very sad. But like they say, all good things must come to an end. I found out about the CBUB back in 2007, and since then this site has been part of my life. I have enjoyed adding characters and making matches on here. This site has really helped me by improving my writing skills.

 

Thanks FoxFingers for making a great site, and for your hard work for making this site last long as possible.

 

I will still be on here until the site is shut down. But I can tell you all that I will miss this place and everyone on here.

 

Good luck to everyone.

Oh man this is such a let down. I've been here two years and got 240 matches up.

 

Foxfingers did all he could to keep the site up and make it better and I appreciate his hard work. I tried to show it by commenting as much as I could and putting up matches.

 

This site was litterally heaven for me. This is seriously what I'm going to be doing in heaven- writing fan fiction stories of super huge crossovers.

 

Thank you Fox and blessings on you and your household.

Thank you, VCM, for reminding me what I'm really going to miss about this place--living through the assholes.

 

Hearing the stories about Son of Light and his bizarre feminist mission.

Multi-accounters, every few years creating the need for people to have characters to vote (special note goes to ChessMaster, the dumb bastard).

Stupid pointless rants taking the whole game too seriously, including my own.

Agustinaldo, that underperforming, Argentinian, giantess-fetishizing jackass!

MadMarty2, single-handedly necessitating half of the rules made when this incarnation of the CBUB started out.

And now, VCM.  You wacky asshole.  

 

 

 

Can you remove the please result of Tommy Vercetti's last match with CJ from the record?

Is there any chance it is run like the CBUB is?

Similar but different in a few ways.

God damn.

 

Recently I decided to dredge through a lot of old threads the forums had - including Treacherous's old WWC RP, the multiple Universal Warriors Tourneys, Nosgoth, etc, etc. And then this news comes across... I'm happy I decided to take one last trip down memory lane. I've been here since 2007 though on a different account originally - disappeared from reality but as they all say: They always come back. Seems that saying won't hold up anymore. I love this place - I will still love it despite its "demise". I have made several good friends via ElectricFerret. I have been through a few things with ElectricFerret. I still remember The Once and Forever. I still remember Manowar. I still remember Tarvi-*glomps* HAI. Anyways... before I keep rambling, I'm just gonna cut myself short and repeat: There's going to be a lot of things I'll miss.

 

And Haven huh? Oh boy, my old stomping grounds where I was an utter noob back then lolol

It's over? REALLY? I've been here on-again and off-again on this site since...2001, I think. I originally stumbled upon here looking up a Gambit vs Blackcat vs Catwoman fight and when I noticed how detailed that you guys made all of your pop culture fights I was hooked ever since then. And sure, over the years, my writing has not been the greatest when it came to Fight setups or RP stories; but you guys always did read my stuff and that made me feel greatly appreciated even when my real life sucked for a time. Throughout the years, I have learned a lot from you guys and made lots of friends in the process.

 

I always thought this website has real potential to become big like Roosterteeth.com, Batinthesun.com, or League of Super Critics level of awesomeness. I'm sure that if the rest of us would just find a way to come together, with all the tech knowledge that we know by now, we could possibly put together something great. Hell even create a Youtube account, put up some CBUB or FPL flash fights and stories to get people's attention, and get some sweet advertising deals to get some $$$ for Electricferret. I don't know, these are just some ideas in my head but I refuse to go into the night and I know a lot of you feel the same way. But if that's the case and you guys would rather just end that is fine by me, I guess. It's been real honor and pleasure to chat with you guys.
