Jesus.. I dont even know how to start this post.
I've had a amazing 2,5 years at USG greatly because of the amount of friendships i made and the experience i've gathered here across the 2.5 years.
All good things must come to a end at some point though and this is that end. I want to make it clear to everyone that i am not leaving because i disagree with anything done or any internal thing.
The reason im leaving is because i am entering a point in my life now where there are alot of important decisions that i need to make and it will effect my life negatively if i keep spending as much time on USG as i did.
I had to take about half an hour to write this because i am genuinely close to crying, USG was and is more then a gaming community to me and i will always cherish the memories i had here.
I will continue to join teamspeak whenever i have time and i might even help out with occasional development but i will not be a Owner of the community anymore.
Anyone who had contact with me regarding ongoing development will be directed to @Cylinder.
Now that that is said, lets get onto with people who have made a impression on me in the last 2 years and my 'goodbyes' to them.
(These are going to be a little bit short because i already talked to alot of them in person and since there are so many i will not be writing a essay for each of them, its not the point of this post)
Pril you have genuinely been a incredible influence on me in the past 2 years, you have learned me countless conversation techniques and have taught me alot about community management.
I love the 'no drama approach' you took with USG and i hope it stays that way after i leave, i love the freedom me and sven got when developing and i loved watching you passive aggressively roasting people in a channel.
You have always treated me like your equal and i highly respect you for setting up such a wonderfull community that i've had the pleasure of managing for the last year.
Sven you are one of the nicest people i have ever met on the internet and when i talk to you i always leave the channel calmer.
I cant thank you enough for having kept me determined and hard working so we could release Takistan 2.0. If i ever had negative thoughts you were always there to calm me down or cheer me up.
Bottomline is that Takistan 2 would not have been possible without you and i loved the synergy we had when working on it.
You have always been the kind of person to be able to switch between harsh and soft really easily. This is why i reccomended you for a Msgt role back in NATO days and why i agreed with putting you as a captain more recently.
Its not like we were best of friends or even talked alot but from the time we did spent i could easily say that you are a great person.
I always loved going ingame with you as a civilian and just trolling around, i feel that in alot of ways you are really similiar to Steve but a defining trait of you is your loyalty towards USG i feel.
I will miss rdming people with you <3
You have always been a interesting person ibby, your amazing communications with people have always made it easy to get ranks and respect around this community and i hope we can play some BDO or OSRS in the future.
You secretly always intrigued me because your like a punching bag, you could take abuse, demotions and more and would be back the day after the same you left teamspeak the day before.
I think your loyalty towards USG is almost unrivaled and i respect you for that.
You are one of the kindest people i've met on the internet along with Sven. Your dedication towards redcross is only rivalled by Stevie and you have been the greatest faction leader i've seen on my time in USG.
I always enyoyed talking to you about the server, life and whatever more and i will definetely continue joining your channel every now and then.
I dont know you that well personally but fudge has alot of trust in you and i would definitely trust you to run red cross one day when fudge cant anymore.
We only really met 2 weeks ago but i enyoyed playing with you and talking to you about our common interests, i think your a funny guy and i wish you the best with your new gang.
The first person i ever met in Takistan, i still remember us playing medic in the RLG days and i still remember you following BERU in your shitty off-road truck.
I always loved playing with you ingame and i hope we can keep contact after i left.
You were one of the best SA's out of game i have ever seen. I've seen people do loads of cases or loads of logs before but you did both and helped us ban over 100 people in the first month who were just here to dupe.
I always had fun with you ingame and i will definitely miss that. Dont care about what steve said on your promotion request, i still think you deserve a higher spot.
I remember you being reccomended to me by edd stark back in the day and you fragging everyone when we played as GHSTS. Will definitely miss that.
I loved working with you back when you were a DOA and playing with you in BERU after. You were always online at most weird times just like me!
Your a scary dude, but i appreciate ya!
