Madiaba is, without a doubt, one of the most influential members in RA2 history. His status developed quickly and inspired many members to make a name for themselves. Mad is primarily renowned for his crazy ideas, exceptional technical expertise, and awesome mods. His first mods showcase was entitled "Mad's Mods: thoughts + tweaks" and was released in August 9, 2007.

Alhough much of his work was done "behind the scenes," he helped members organize/run tourneys, solve difficult/problematic bots, and create new mods. In fact, he has worked with and recieved compliments from many of the big names of RA2 including Serge, Clickbeetle, and ACAMS. Amidst the many other modders that he influenced, you see JoeBlo, SpyGuy, philetbabe, Sage, Trovaner, and 70 CUDA.

Notable Mods

This is an incomplete list of Mad's best work. He has had his finger in one too many pies to list them all here. In fact, Mad has over 26 arenas of his own (as of June 2010).
