Well, Derek (D-Man) has finally quit KO for good. Many of you knew him as TehGun, but to some of us, he was more than a KO player. Exigent/Shard was a great guy who always helped his friends and played legit and with integrity. He mastered the assassin as only few could have, being one of the best comboers I have ever known, but even more, one of the coolest guys I have ever had the privelege of encountering.
Derek often put his neck on the line to defend his friends, proving that to him, his reputation was less important than the friendships he made. I never thought I would meet someone on the internet I would ever want to meet IRL, but I have made plans to meet him IRL, as he is a great guy. His contributions to KO were numerous, and he will be greatly missed.
Right now, Shard's playing EQ and CS 1.6. GL IRL and in other travels bro. God speed and god bless.
