Ode To A Lost Friend
Back in the early days of all online gaming and not just UT cheating was rife and the more popular gaming became so did cheating. Everyone was joining ClanBase to play cups and ladders etc. but without external help from coders we had very little protection against cheating until ClanBase came up with a Cheat & Abuse Department. Staff were recruited to deal with ban cases as anti-cheat software became more available to help game scenes. To operate properly the department needed a leadership and this is where Moadebe came in along with Obsidian who both became Chiefs of C&A.
Now people might think that Moadebe was only dealing with UT related stuff because of his background but until I joined the crew this was not the case. He did a hell of lot more behind the scenes work than most people could imagine. He would contact various people who created anti-cheat software for all games and tried to get them on-board. Things like punkbuster GV and UAC3 which was the last project that he was involved with and is now successful in the CoD series.
I now find myself in his shoes which to be honest I will never fill, but I hope to do my best in the future for Anti-cheat on ClanBase and not just for UT, but for all games which are played online as I think I owe this much to the memory of Moadebe. Moadebe is now in a better place but I hope everyone out there will hold his memory every now and then and think about what he has done for most game scenes on ClanBase and as long as UT lives on then so will the legacy of Moadebe.
Respect, R.I.P Friend
