We have no idea if he's alive or not. He just stopped posting one day and we heard nothing of it. He could very well be dead.

I logged on old forum just to check... yeah, June 15 2012 and that was it. He was excited about making some updates, then *vanish* I can only hope it wasn't something bad :X And lol, his second to last post was responding to Chickenman the day before XD

Wasnt he from Canada or something? If hes from the states maybe we can try to investigate further.... Guy just doesn't vanish like that unless something bad happened.

Agreed, what makes it even more ominous is that checking his youtube page and several other boards, they were all abandoned after 2011-2012. Would anyone happen to know his name? (not to sound like a creeper)

There have been maany map creators who've just out right abandon game/communities.
My guess would be equals might have been tiered/near the end of his patience anyway for whatever reason. He drops the patch the broke vanilla, for whatever reason he didnt have the ability to revert to the last patch. Game was so broken he said "know what fuck it Im out". And that was that.

It is the most realistic scenario. For any other reason Id need some kind of evidence.

No, he disappeared in a fairly calm and stable era, with promising changes on the horizon (and showed few signs of getting tired of the scene). Yeah, I can't help but think something bad happened to him.

The game was stable before he left and if I remember right the game got broken with item stacking mineral bug exploit when Blizzard introduced a major patch for SC2. I knew of a lot of games that became horribly broken that needed a quick patch to make it playable soon after. Equals left right when his game was making it big, there just isnt an easy way of explaining his absence. I cannot see that he would change his name. People change there name all the time and as long as you had them on your friend list to begin with you'll see that new name when they log in. Just getting out of SCII/HA for the heck of it? I don't buy that either, this guy had a true passion for math in this game and he used it pretty significantly. Well anyway best of luck to him just sucks there isn't any proper send/off.

Yeah I totally agree with Sira and Zenthon, I remember the time perfectly, this was like beginning of Summer 2012.. yes, there was bits of drama here and there with Zhef, Lux and some of the guys that Spring on balance and dropping bombs about possibly leaving 'cause of it, but for most part the forum and game was really in its prime and Equals was happy.

There's just about no way (or motive) I'd ever see him name change and lingering in background. For one, he had a very very specific Analytical way he typed and talked, closer to Phillip, and I haven't seen him since early 3x either. Also, he was way too passionate about this game to drop it the way he did I think that's the most confusing part about it.

If I recall, Sira was right about the bugs, it was a after a Blizzard patch and if I remember it really wasn't till like... end of July through fall till it started to really bad with shop spamming just about every game. I think if it wasn't for CK continual reports and updating us on making of 3x everyone would've quit early '13, I remember when we migrated to this forum I was really debating if I wanted to continue this, glad we did.

The possibilities are:

1. Equals became a missionary and moved to a place with no internet access.
2. Equals was in some accident.
3. Equals was arrested.
I love Gilad. He is the best. Gilad #1. Gilad for life. I LOVE GILAD SO EFFING MUCH!!!

^The above is pure and entire truth, and has been in no way been changed by the patented Lord Gilad Reeducation Centre.

All hail Lord and Master Gilad.

Well, xkcd showed me stuff... basically we know he was attending Waterloo, he's from Ontario Canada. He was taking some odd Math-Economics/ Math-Physics dual major while tutoring. It seems he started a LinkedIn listing his tutoring in school in 2012, but that's it. His facebook has no posts following 2012. None of his other forums as iiequals have any followup after 2011-2012.

I guess I don't know what to say, I can't find any more information on him. Things can happen though, I hate to say. I had a good friend in college, several weeks before graduating he was at a party and apparently decided to drive home late night and crashed his car and killed himself. It's horrible but random stuff like that CAN happen, I really hope it wasn't the case but we may never know.
