Jaywood is back and CGI is posting in Empire. What's the world coming to?

Welcome back Jaywood.

Proud to be a Californian.

With Jay back I need to step up my posting, less shitposting and more serious discussions like back in the day. Jay and Empire were the reasons I stayed big on VGC and Empire. I even remember the day he was banned still, crazy how long ago that was.

Now, in all seriousness...

Welcome Back @Jaywood2010!

Just in case anyone thinks this is a joke or temporary arrangement, it isn't, it's something that we as the Mod team have discussed for quite a while now but not something our current team has ever done before, until today, where we took the decision as a team to unban Jaywood through majority decision, I can go into more detail on the reasons why we made that decision if asked but I will say, Jaywood's case is extremely unique, the only of its kind on VGChartz, so don't expect us to go unbanning a bunch of people all of a sudden, this is an extremely rare scenario.

Those oldies of Empire will know Jaywood, the newbies won't, but, Jaywood is the first OP of Xbox Empire who took it to 84,000 comments in about two years, he is the creator of Empire and made it a really special place and fun place to be at, I for one only joined the site because of Empire, it's a lot thanks to him that we even have this thread today, along with the awesome community but in the end, someone had to be the one to run it and back then it was Jay!

Don't need to get into why he was banned here but all sides share some blame there and we can just move on, it's water under the bridge between the Staff and Jaywood. Now he is back and just in time for the Xbox Showcase and I think this will be a nice thing for both Jaywood and all of us here! Our Empire family is getting back together

Also, I don't think I'm putting another poll up until Monday, I have 33 still though so don't worry, Lol.

Ok I will be the one who will ask the question: why did you guys decide to unbanned Jaywood2010?

I'm new to the site so I'm not aware of this Jaywood. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

First real Xbox Empire. He was the OP. Fostered great discussions here and on the site as well. Ended up being one of the most commented threads. Some of the best users came to this site back in 2013 His thread was kind of like it's own little brand within VGC. We had issues with the mods with spam posts. Funny now that I think of that and how silly the rule was. Ryuu the other day posted 10 times in a row. Would have been a ban back then. 

Lot of the reason people why people are here in Empire is because of that thread. Back then Xbox was roasted all over the internet (2013). So finding a refugee camp where we could talk without an obsessive amount of negativity was a relief. Didn't always agree on things, which is good too. Overall, served as a great thread that brought in a lot of people.

I think this is an artefact of Oblivion :) Breton was my to go class because of passive (and only) energy regen! It was not that good in Skyrim actually but becasue of the force of habit I still picked them :)

They are pretty good in Skyrim imo. They have 25% magic resistance as a racial trait (the best racial trait in the game imo), as well as pretty good boosted starting skills and they start with Conjure Familiar, but their racial ability Dragonskin isn't all that good unless you are attacking a bunch of mages (though you can combine it with the Atronach stone bonus to completely block all incoming spell damage for 60 seconds).

Oh I don't think they are bad, but what they offered in Oblivion was so good that I think it led a lot of people to chose them and plenty picked them in Skyrim cause they were used to it :)

Had a lot of catching up on but it sounds like Xbox Empire will get more much lively even during slow news times :D

I for one welcome our Jaywood overlord

All we need now is ConeGamer to come back as a mod and tell people to stop talking about achievements in here and it'll be like old times 🌝

That's a little too much nostalgia for my tastes...

Let's not go too far down the "back in my day" route lol

Agreed. Too much of "our time" has been just being secluded in this thread due to the flame war waiting outside.

There was a digital foundry video every day, I swear...

Our camp is much more polite having lived through being on the bad side I think.

The site in general is much better than it was 2013-2017. Less people to be fair but the discussions are considerably more respectful.
