I’m going to copy and paste what I posted on Facebook here, because this is pretty much how I feel about this sudden and horrible news.
You all know that the Internet is known for having a lot of assholes. It just seems like being a jerk comes second nature to a lot of people just because they’re online. This fact makes it even more impressive just how kind and jovial MisterEgoTrip was. He was one of the very first online players I ever took any kind of a liking to, because even online he had a bright personality that was easy to gravitate toward.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that he, perhaps more than any other player, is responsible for me going from a straight up scrub to at least being decent. I’ll never forget that long practice session he had with me on PSN HDR where he taught me the fundamentals of good positioning and zoning. He also taught me how to properly play the DJ/Honda match up. I actually thought that matchup was in Honda’s favor at the time, because he was that damn good!
The Internet, and the world in general, needs more cool people like Ron. You will most definitely be missed, Sir.
