1  /\\/ Public / /\\/ News / About /\\/ / Dizzy Resigns as Leader on: February 24, 2008, 05:32:23 pm
Hey gang,

I'm working again, and working hard... 60 hour weeks and it's gonna get worse before it gets better.  At first I thought I could kind of 'keep my hand in' on the AV tip, but now I'm realizing that it's really not going to work.

I'm not quitting or untagging or anything, but for the foreseeable future, Soldat is just gonna have to go on my back burner.  Way, way back.  I think I still might play a bit from time to time, and when I do, I'll be REALLY happy to see you guys, but I have 0% ability to commit to anything... practices, clanwars, running the clan, all of that.

If you guys want to keep AV alive without me, more power to ya.  If you want to disband it, that's also cool with me.  Or keep it alive in whatever form you want... take it in whatever direction works for ya.  More serious, less serious, whatever.  Seriously, it's your clan, it belongs to all of us and always did.

The Captains, Cracer, Tsukan, Braco and Colwell are all good people that know how to handle ****.  If y'all want to run it democracy-style, do it.  If y'all want to nominate a new Leader, do it.  Whatever's clever.  You guys don't need my permission to do anything, any more. 

The Hizzle will be paid for for as long as there's an AV.  Probably I should make one of you guys a Full Admin.  Talk it out, gimme a name, and it will get done.

Ditto for the forums.  Someone should be a full admin here.

IF anything is needed from me, the best way to get ahold of me is email  Whatever it is, though, will probably not get taken care of until Sunday of that week.

Actually, I'm not going to type anything here.  If I started to try and express how I feel about this, I might actually start crying.  Woops, too late.  Aw **** it, let the tears flow, it's an honest sentiment.  Each and every one of you mean a lot to me and I'm not just saying that.  You guys are the little brothers I never had.  I wish you the very best of luck in Real Life and in the wonderful pixelated world of online competition.  Meanwhile, I'll see you when I can.

AV is one of the best things I ever did.

Edited the OP above.  Shaz was supposed to run TW pracs at 5pm, he's no longer here and I can't get on before 6pm anymore.

If any Captain wants to commit to running practices earlier, let me know, we can make that happen.
4  /\\/ Public / General / Robbins on outlaws. on: February 06, 2008, 12:18:50 am
"The difference between a criminal and an outlaw is that while criminals frequently are victims, outlaws never are. Indeed, the first step towards becoming a true outlaw is the refusal to be victimized. All people who live subject to other people's laws are victims. People who break laws out of greed, frustration, or vengeance are victims. People who overturn laws in order to replace them with their own laws are victims. (I am speaking here of revolutionaries.) We outlaws, however, live beyond the law. In a sense, then, we live beyond society. Have we a common goal, that goal is to turn the tables on the nature of society. When we succeed, we raise the exhilaration content of the universe. We even raise it a little bit when we fail.

In my pocket I carry several long wooden matches.  As long as there are matches, there will be fuses. As long as there are fuses, no walls are safe. As long as every wall is threatened, the world can happen. Outlaws are can openers in the supermarket of life.

Yes, and I love the trite mythos of the outlaw. I love the self-conscious romanticism of the outlaw. I love the black wardrobe of the outlaw. I love the fey smile of the outlaw. I love the tequila of the outlaw and the beans of the outlaw. I love the way respectable men sneer and say ‘outlaw.’ I love the way young women palpitate and say ‘outlaw.’ The outlaw boat sails against the flow, and I love it. Outlaws toilet where badgers toilet, and I love it. All outlaws are photogenic, and I love that. ‘When freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free’: that’s a graffito seen in Anacortes, and I love that. There are outlaw maps that lead to outlaw treasures, and I love those maps especially.

Unwilling to wait for mankind to improve, the outlaw lives as if that day were here, and I love that most of all."

—Tom Robbins, Still Life With Woodpecker

I remember that whole time i was being shot at i went from thinking "oh ****" to "lmao"

HA!  I know those kinds of soldat moments.  Nice.  Anyone else have those times when you just assumed you were dead and that the other guy was alive and you were so dumbstruck that you forgot to keep playing?

Everything should be updated.  Dropped a bunch of people from the roster and changed forum memberships. 

Eh, I still haven't dropped Arm quite yet... it just doesn't seem right.

10  /\\/ Public / General / The 1.5.0 news on: January 25, 2008, 07:27:51 pm
Not many details but 1.5.0 is in the works.  I havent yet read through all 18 pages of but I DID note with interest that there will be PUBLIC BETA TESTING this time around (yay!)
11  /\\/ Public / Recruitment & Challenges / Re: My Application on: January 25, 2008, 06:38:33 pm
Sorry realforce.  AVCTF closed shop 2 days ago.  Also we only accept Western Hemisphere players.

Good luck with your clan search; I recommend posting on Soldat Forums if you haven't already.  I also recommend you stick to Euro clans, you will be happier with people with similar times and pings.
