Sometimes found on teamspeak, Krenath was one of the more currently active admins. Wise and very helpful he is a great person who has a no-nonsense attitude and put the server before all. He was a great contributor to the MCO community and revered by many.

There is a rumor is is also older than the hills.

Krenath knows that Zfleming1 knows that Krenath knows that Zfleming1 knows that Krenath knows....


Krenath joined the server on March 10th, 2011. He was promoted to Moderator 15 days later. He was promoted to Admin 35 days after that. He resigned his position as Admin on July 28th, 2012. He returned to his Admin position on July 5th, 2015.

Krenath attributed his promotions to not waiting to be promoted to get out and try to help players and improve the server to the best of his abilities with the resources he had available at the time. As a non-staff Diamond donor, he was helping players learn the server and was handing out extra tools and armor to needy players and already combing the public areas for signs of grief.

Once promoted to Moderator, Krenath all but quit building areas of his own and focused on grief checks and repairing griefer damage. He spent a lot of time trimming the griefer population and a mere two weeks into his moderatorship, ended up fending off a 4chan raid almost singlehandedly by staying awake, online, and banning for a 30-hour stretch. During this time, he had an epiphany about grief, griefers, and abandoned areas which led to his belief that abandoned areas should *not* be repaired by staff unless its original owner logs on to report the grief. This permits the building to erode the griefer population while the griefers in turn erode the building. Eventually both the griefers and the building go away and someone else can build on that spot.

The next time Krenath had to deal with a 4chan raid, he had alrady been promoted to admin. This made things a lot easier since he merely deputized all the regular players online at the time, made them invincible, gave them diamond swords, and suggested they stalk new players and kill those that were observed to grief. That raid didn't last very long and many regulars were disappointed they missed the fun.

Krenath claims responsibility for suggesting to SlowRiot the promotions of BadSyntax, StanDudek, CharlesBaechler, rtkwe, zfleming, dorn284, Lothendal, Drathus42, FlyingJellyfish, Broncoskip, Rayzion, and Enjoku to Moderator and for suggesting to SlowRiot the promotion of ShyPixel, AgentMuu, and zfleming1 to Admin. ...Whether or not Riot was already planning their promotions.

Krenath has always believed that the server owner should run the games as he sees fit and those who cannot handle that should find a different server to play on rather than expect the server to change to suit them. As his point of view has changed over time, he found himself looking for something different in a server and, to follow his own advice, decided to leave MCO amicably rather than work against the server in any way.

<getplayerhead.sh?Krenath&16.png Krenath> I am a proper noun, not a verb.
<getplayerhead.sh?Krenath&16.png Krenath> If I were a verb, it would not be a pleasant action.
