Semper Victrix - Always Victorious
BlacKarnagEnigma (BKE), originaly k4karnage, formerly k4, first joined the Bungie.net community 10/30/2006, after becoming fascinated with Lord Snakie's Rainbow Theory. His first post was about a possible level design for Halo 3. A user known as Peacemaker777 was attracted to this thread and send k4karnage an invite to a group he was making, the Council of Spartans. BKE joined & was indirectly responsible for the rapid growth of the group. He rose though the ranks and is currently one of the highest ranking users in the group. He has made various threads, in his groups and the Halo 3 Forum, what he calls "his recruiting pool" or "the most retarded place on B.net" and The Septagon (Communtiy Forum). He has recently removed himself from the overflow of new members in the Halo 3 Forum prior to Halo 3's release and considers the Community Forum his new "home".
He is not exactly a household name, but has been active in the Halo 3 Forum for quite some time and thus has obtained a reputation with Halo 3 Forum regulars. He has founded several groups, namely the Sigma Spartans, Spartan Legends, Spartan Legends 2.0, Call to Arms, Halo 3 FFA, and more recently, Sigma Spartans II. However, Call to Arms, Halo 3 FFA, Sigma Spartans, and Spartan Legends have failed due to lack of activity and group destroyers, which are commonly known to prey on small groups. He was an avid follower of the Halo 3 ARG, Iris and had attempted to get a key for the severs, but failed each time. He likes to curse at cheaters, haters and modders, and Gzalzi. When he calls him K-19Karnage, due to a humiliating score he received at the end of a FFA Slayer match. Recently, his original account was hacked and many things were done to his groups and contacts to warrant BKE to make a new account. This proved to be the end of his original account, as the original account will no longer log into Bungie.net, possibly because of the hacking. As of Nov. 16th, k4karnage used a different account, under the name of k4.
During the latter part of April 2008, he began getting into many disputes with CoS's leader, Lord Snakie, and eventually the probelms escalated to a point where k4 resigned from CoS, entirely. Shortly after the "Letter of Resignation - k4" thread was put up, Snakie booted k4, and during a Windows Live Mesenger chat, harsh words were thrown about and the future of k4 looked dim, as did the CoS's.
However, the next day, the two realised their probelms and apoligised to each other. While not everything was settled, k4 revealed to Snakie that, even after being offered a chance back into the CoS, he was leaving CoS for a long time, for a bit of "soul-searching", time to think about what kind of a person he would become and what to get rid of off his personality. He is not expected to come back for some time, and it may be a totally different administration if office when he returns, but he accepts it and hopes that the administrations on the rise will continue to better the CoS. However, that does not mean he has left B.net. but is simply looking for other groups, and people to meet and become a part of.
k4 returned to B.net on 19 June, 2008, but not as k4karnage. Instead, he revealed he had a brand new account, BlacKarnagEnigma. He is now working on B.net full time and has rejoined CoS.
