Hello community of Devastation,
I am here to update you about the current situation Devastation is in. As most of you already know BOI & WOI are offline. Its NOT the fault of the community, for the past 2 years that I have worked on WOI and the few times we did BOI in between I have enjoyed every moment of them.
However, as all of you also know, and this is no secret, is that staff wise they were a mess. I will not lie about that. To add to that, Gary's health declining the past 2 weeks before the WOI/BOI closure hasn't helped either.
Me as the developer, I don't have the time anymore as I used to have.
College takes its toll, especially now that I'm shorty facing my final year and grand exams to become a truly certified developer. Due to all those factors we have decided to shut WOI and BOI down. With no one to maintain them and to look after them that was the best solution.
Since I joined in 2010 and played 138, when I joined the staff in February 2012, I have achieved many things.
- I've got to work with 1 of the few geniusses behind the PW private server branch (My partner Robb)
- I've had the ability to create servers of my own
- I was able to work on a 138 server,a 145 server, a 151 server, a WOI server and a BOI server and support a community in all of them.
- But my greatest achievement is being able to push update after update the last 3 years, good ones, bad ones. Just so many of them, and being able to satisfy you (the community) as a whole with a more pleasant playing experience so that you could enjoy your free time in our games.
However, all good things must come to a end. And as such
As of today, 15/05/2015, I, FireFly, will be leaving Devastation and im hereby publicly putting in my resignation.
I do not know what the future holds for Devastation, I dont even know what my own future holds at this point so I can not say anything about the current PW or Deva future in general.
People I wish to thank:
(Gary) for allowing me to get on the team in 2012 and getting me started here in the first place.
(Shona), yes Shona, I still remember your character on 145. though I can't recall your name on 138. But It was you that got me onboard of the team in 2012, though it was mostly because I kept asking you.
(Robb), a blessing and a curse sometimes, but one of the smartest I've ever known. without this man Deva never wouldn't have reached what it has reached these past few years. And this geniuss allowed me to work with him to reach even greater things. (We spend a hell of a time on upgrading files from 145 to 148, and from 148 to 151. I will miss those times buddy)
, even though this person is more of a myth then anything else for most of you. this girl is one of the nicest persons I know and her drawings are like watching a beautiful painting. She is also the geniuss who designed and drawed the Devastation Dragon card on 151, note: she spend atleast a one hundred hours on it)
(not all of them though, as I said, staff was quite bad the last year, but there have been a few who sticked with us regardless) and those I wish to thank for being able to put up with me. Yes I haven't been the easiest one and I certainly haven't been the nicest one. But never the less most of you kept supporting me. And for that I thank you.
- The community
, yes there has been times we haven't seen eye to eye. hell there's been times I made everyone hate me for 1 or 2 updates. But over the past 3 years most of you supported the team and me regardless. Its 1 thing to play a server but its a whole other thing to try and keep it alive and for the ones that have been with us since the start. I thank you for all your support.
As for me though, I bid you all farewell now.
