⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️

There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.

Æ Roadmap

  • Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically)
  • Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
  • Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
  • Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
  • .onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
  • CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
  • Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
  • Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)

  • Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.

    If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.

    You can also email me via [email protected]

    Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.

    Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021! - aediot



    Gather Against Fate

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Gather Against Fate or GAF / <GAF> for short, is NeoGAF's shitty Free Company (FC for short) from the previous 4.0/10 to 9.0/10 MMORPG game Final Fantasy XIV on the Ultros server. Ultros is also home of the meme GAF'D. Unlike all regular free companies, not only NeoGAF plays this boring game together as Gather Against Fate but they take their unholy disease that is social justice and spread it around the world of Eorzea. And if you think they still describe themselves as the nexus of hardcore gamers social justice warriors kicking players out of their safe space for different opinions they get triggered over, then you sir are correct. Other FFXIV players not from the virtual hivemind clearly describes GAF as not only a bunch of social justice cucks, but also assholes, smugs, white knights, male feminists, privilege checkers, and two of the main ingredients of it all...SHITTERS AND EROTIC ROLE PLAYERS!

    The Beginning

    Did You Know: Maple 'Ookie' Cookie the creator of GAF has left FFXIV and his free company behind because he's TRIGGERED and knows GAF has a bad reputation!


    File:Neogafffxivgafrpdp.jpg
    Just like the rejects of Second Life.

    It was August 24th, 2013. The once unsuccessful 4.0/10 MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV was re-released as the successful 9.0/10 Game of the Year MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The neckbeard fatties of NeoGAF got together and started a Free Company on the Ultros server as Gather Against Fate. Or GAF for short. Yeah, GAF, very original. The leader and founder of GAF is a serious fat neckbearded NeoGAF member who goes by his character name Maple 'Ookie' Cookie. He got the name Maple Cookie because he's a fatty glutton like NeoGAF mod Besada from stuffing his fat neckbeard face with delicious cookies and GAF's special cum-filled ookie cookies made with the love from NeoGAF. Maple Cookie recruited other co-founders from NeoGAF Strawberry 'loli lover' Shortcake, Safflower Amariyo, Baramoht Klynhollsyn, Drama 'The Drama Queen' Zeni, Elliott Kirkland, Mira 'Shemale' Mora, Odoru 'Weeaboo' Suika, Scything Moon, and Victor 'Victoria The Triggered' Strange. Together they are all GAF-backwards, Gather Against Fate!

    GAF'D

    What is the word GAF'D? And why the fuck do we need to know? Is GAF'D a made up word by NeoGAF? By going deeper through research the answer is this: GAF'D is an inside joke and next FFXIV meme by everyone not from GAF that is literally mocking, trolling, and blaming GAF for being shit and shit-terrible. Now most of the time people would shout GAF'D just for the good ol' lulz.

    It begin back in a certain patch update in Final Fantasy XIV where elite hunts are available for everyone. All GAF members would greedily jew-pull every elite hunt early without everyone getting a chance. It's no mystery Maple 'Ookie' Cookie the creator of GAF is proud of it to make Final Fantasy XIV even more shittier than the game currently is. GAF has a tendency to be early elite hunt pullers and floor kissers which is why the meme GAF'D is created and officially making GAF the laughing stock from Ultros. And professional shitters.


       
     
    Yup, played on Ultros for the first year of the games launch before transferring to Gilgamesh. GAF'D meme was born from hunts. Those obnoxious cunts would just pull aggro on any mob while others were waiting for more to join in order to get credit. Thus, you were "GAF'D". It does piss off GAF members from NeoGAF, since the reputation they had in the server was due to that.

    GAF were like the violent, uncivilized niggers during Hurricane Katrina while other guilds were like the Japs during the 2011 tsunamis, orderly and respectful. I also trolled by early pulling a lot when near them and then shouted "GAF'D!". It was fucking hilarious.
     


     
     

    —Anonymous FFXIV player from Ultros to Gilgamesh.

    Other GAF actions include:

    • Screwing up on purpose and blaming other party members in Party Finder or Duty Finder.
    • Commonly outright leaving parties after one wipe including learning groups.
    • Joining FATE parties to leech experience points by doing nothing but sitting their fatasses down stuffing their faces with Doritos and Mountain Dew.
    • Joining elite hunt parties to pull early without waiting and leaves after they get a clear.
    • Erotic role-playing with different types of fetishes in public.
    • Not giving a shit to anyone or anybody outside of GAF.
    • Behaving like manchildren.
    • Spreading false advertisement on GAF being "friendly" and "drama free" and other false words to sucker morons to join the hivemind.
    • Staying true to the rules as listed above.
    • Fapping to trannies.
    • Taking showers once a month.
    • Getting triggered easily like special snowflakes.

    The bottom line is this. Players on Ultros likes to shout GAF'D in trolling NeoGAF for not only their numerous failures, but for the lulz too...and GAF hates the lulz.

    Quotes Against Fate

    Quotes From GAF

       
     
    Ever since The Hunt was introduced in patch 2.3, many players have started to single out our FC for various reasons. We were at one time, and might possibly still be, the largest and most powerful FC on the server. We are also a fairly exclusive Free Company as we only accept NeoGAF members and their associates. This unfortunately garners a lot of hate and jealously. People really want to besmirch our name. Most of what you hear about us is completely false. As for our own members, the drama you see people taking about in this thread is blown completely out of proportion and often interpreted incorrectly. People like to joke around a lot but those that are not privy to what is actually happening might take those comments the wrong way.
     

     
     

    —ROBOKITTYZILLA ass kissing GAF.

       
     
    In the early days of hunts, GAF got a reputation--which I believe to be mostly unearned, but I wasn't there--of pulling monsters for hunts before everyone arrived to horde all the rewards for themselves. This got compounded by GAF being GAF and joking in /shout about "dammit GAF" whenever somebody (not us) pulled early. People pull early all the time now, and we get blamed.

    Hunts being srs biz, GAF is now sort of a whipping boy for bad behavior. It's stupid, ignore it, most people don't care, but some people will be dicks about it because this is the internet.

    I love being the bad guys lol.
     

     
     

    —Kandinsky loves GAF.

       
     
    GAF is the largest and most powerful FC on Ultros (and 5th in the overall FC rankings), and it's fairly exclusive; to join the FC you have to join the forums. It was inevitable many would come to hate it. GAF is the FC equivalent of the Garlean Empire.
     

     
     

    —MogCakes REALLY loves giving GAF blowjobs in the equivalent of a gay empire.

       
     
    The GAF guild has become a scapegoat of epic proportions. Some guilds even do nasty things and then accuse GAF. It's sad that GAf has become synonimous to all the nasty things that happens in MMOs in such a short time. I went on ultros because Gaf was there but i didn't join Gaf because i had plans with enough people to get by and enjoy the game. My friends and i each in different guilds ( and we party for dongeons and FATES ) are relaying to me the same thing..it's genuinely sad

    I am from <GAF> and yes I agree. They do suck ass.
     

     
     

    —An anonymous member of GAF admitting the suckage behind NeoGAF's FC GAF.

       
     
    GAF pls go. I understand there's nothing to do except making fun of your dumbasses on your server.
     

     
     

    —Anonymous Ultros player on /v/ telling a member of GAF to fuck off.

       
     
    What's bad about GAF? It has a lot of gay people pretending to be girls or not opposed to cybering with a hint of ERP.
     

     
     

    —Yet another Anonymous witness the gayness of GAF.

       
     
    GAF is fucking gay and sucks too many social justice cocks. They sent one of my friends to jail for a week!
     

     
     

    —Anonymous explains how NeoGAF doesn't help anyone outside their faggotry GAF guild.

       
     
    I was banned from NeoGAF too. It was in the MMO game Final Fantasy XIV at the server Ultros. NeoGAF has a free company guild called Gather Against Fate. GAF for short. Original huh? They were being social justice warriors and anti-GamerGaters. I was being polite and neutral about their conversation. And guess what happen? I was trash talked and BOOM! BANNED! They banned me for not agreeing with NeoGAF and marking me as a GamerGate terrorist. I wish I can screenshot the conversation. Unfortunately I didn't. That's not all. They continue to act like assholes to me and say that I suck at this game and to GTFO of Ultros. Look who's talking GAF? I'm not the one who keeps wiping at parties and blaming other people. I'm not the one who impatiently pull elite hunts and people shout "GAF'D" all the time for your stupidity while waiting for others to get a chance. I'm glad GAF is Ultros's laughing stock. I'm glad GAF'D is a new meme by non-GAF players.

    Yes NeoGAF is indeed the worst.

    I top something in the world and our black mage left our static. Got a summoner from GAF. His DPS is trash and he only ever uses Ifrit. Gets mad at us for his trashy DPS and leaves group.

    Yep. GAF's finest hard at work.
