Functions :

Founder of :
Success, Trinity

Handlestory :
In early September 1989 Thorsten (also known as Reptil/Shining 8) left Doughnut Cracking Service (the german section from 1989) to be part of a new group together with some friends from several other groups. Before the decision was made to call the new group SUCCESS, he made the suggestion to give it the name ARROGANCE, which was however rejected by the remaining initial members of SUCCESS. Therefore he decided to change his own handle THORSTEN (which actually was his first name) to THE ARROGANCE.

Trivia :
* Actually THE ARROGANCE were 2 guys, named Thorsten and Thomas. The decision to work together, using one handle, was made in late 1989 (december as far as i remember).
_______________________________________________________________
About Thorsten (active as THE ARROGANCE from 09/1989 - 06/1990):

* Former handles: Reptil, Thorsten.

* he was a member of the following groups (chronological order): SHINING 8 (alias Reptil), SHARKS (alias Thorsten), DOUGHNUT CRACKING SERVICE (alias Thorsten), SUCCESS (alias The Arrogance), SUCCESS+X-RAY (alias The Arrogance), BRAINBOMBS (The Gangstar), Legend (The Arrogance)

* Founder of SUCCESS.

* He quit the scene in 06/1990 to concentrate on his studies. He was finally admitted to the bar as a lawyer in 2001. Ain't it curious that someone who cracked plenty of games is now working as a lawyer with the following principle field of activities: IT-, Media- and especially Copyright-Law ?! ;)

__________________________________________________________
About Thomas (active as THE ARROGANCE from 01/1990 - 1993):

* Former handles: T.J.

* He was a member of the following groups (in chronological order): SHARKS (alias T.J.), SUCCESS (alias T.J 09/89 - 12/89), SUCCESS (alias The Capitalist 12/89 - 12/89) SUCCESS (alias The Arrogance 01/90 - 06/90 and 09/91 - 12/93), SUCCESS+X-RAY (alias The Arrogance), BRAINBOMBS (alias The Gangstar), LEGEND (alias THE ARROGANCE), X-RAY (alias The Arrogance), X-RAY+TRANSCOM (alias The Arrogance) and some more short appearances in other groups like Pandora etc.

* Founder of SUCCESS. Rebuilt SUCCESS in 09/91.

* He slowed down his activities during 1993 and finally quit the scene (more or less) in the end of 1993. Nowadays he is working as an engineer (Telecommunications technology) for a global player in the Telecommunication-business in Munich.

The photo in the upper left corner is showing Thomas.

P.S. (14.02.08) Just read the new added episode about Trinity.. well yep, something happened at that time before we rebuilt success. Can't really remember anymore, that period was definitly too short, but part of my history anyway. So just take it as what it seemed to be.. another very short chapter more, nothing less, nothing more, but of no importance after all.
