Early Years (2001-2005)
Shortly after joining the boards early in 2001 he established himself as a regular on the Playstation Final Fantasy Tactics boards (FFTMB/FFTSB), Perfect Dark Social Board (PDS), Questions and Suggestions (Q&S), and Current Events (CE). On April 15, 2001 his first account was banned for censor bypassing, during the remainder of 2001 he continued posting at his regular place and began posting on secret boards that were being claimed by various members of the FFTSB such as RdDragon, Ninjamaster (ImmatureContent), superaielman, and philsov. Between May and August 2001 he participated in many board invasions with members of the PDS and joined . A particularly notable invasion occurred on July 4, 2001 with PDS invading the Pokemon boards leading CJayC to create a bold topic on Perfect Dark Social concerning the invasions. It was in 2002 that he first became involved with the GameFAQs Spinoff scene and was a regular on the Outboards and later on WhiteFyre and Darkside Legion. In the summer of 2002 he participated in trolling and invaded the Grand Theft Auto 3 boards with FBI Porker and rancid milk. He first became officially KoSed due to his association with the spyrothedragon hacking incident and went on to become a founding member of what would become the KoS Krew. In September of 2002 shortly after the spyrothedragon incident, the Banned User List was removed from the site, occurring after being recently flooded with dozens of names belonging to TRC and Punk Daddy. After the removal of the Banned User List, CJayC banned five variations of TRC's user name (trc, txrxc, tr c, t rc, and t r c) from being placed in newly created accounts. In 2003, TRC continued his association with the KoS Krew and participated in the various trolling schemes and other disruptive plans concocted by the group. It was most common to troll a few of the cliques on Current Events and the World Wrestling Federation Games Social Board and to participate in the theft of accounts usually from spinoff database leaks. There were also times when exploits would be used on occasion such as the FTP Incident. Following the BRM ratting incident the KoS Krew became fractured with only little activity from some of its members. TRC began posting less after the event and went into a period of inactivity on GameFAQs.
