    Grasping the reins once more!

    Hi Most of you only found out that I only resigned last week - bit of a weird situation, really - but it has genuinely been like a full quarter since I left. Whilst I appreciate the hard work of the XA team, I think one of the key things that SSTRP has lost even towards the tail end of my tenure was a sense of direction and progressiveness. My goal will be to re-instil this immediately. Starting with kicking off the final leg of the Progenitor quest line with a campaign this weekend (the penultimate campaign of the arc)
  4. Hi, So as it has probably became readily apparent by this stage, I resigned from SSTRP in April. This wasn't publicised because I wanted a smooth change of the guard sans drama - I think that was achieved, and indeed I wouldn't be surprised if a third of the people who read this do not know who I am. The goal was for me to fade quietly into the background but this has been upset recently by a couple of rival communities who have begun to form. Much to my surprise, I have discovered that they are falsely stating or implying that I have offered them some sort of support or endorsement over .net. This is patently false: this is the server that I had personally ran for a decade, and the people leading it now were personally appointed by me. It is frankly ridiculous to suggest I would turn my back on my own server in favour of some upstart. Perhaps those who feel such a desperate need to lean on my reputation ought to consider why their own reputations are so tarnished as to necessitate deceiving the players they have have managed to acquire.

    Taking an LOA.

    In the interim, after this week a ceasefire in the Civil War will form between Sanctuary and the Coalition after the arachnids, fleeing the Progenitors, begin to infringe and invade human territory once again - with the Progenitors shortly in tow. This gives us the justification to return to a more traditional SSTRP model of missions until I return.

    Taking an LOA.

    Hi Earlier this week I informed the rest of the admin team that I was reaching a tipping point. SSTRP has/had no longer became fun for me, and I was considering either shutting down the server, or handing it over to an XA. Furthermore, as I mentioned last, I have accepted a role that requires me to commute back and forth to London each day - meaning I will not have the freedom and the time that working from home once entitled me. But the overwhelming consensus from the admin team is that they would very much like me not to shut down the server - that they and many of you continue to enjoy it. Unfortunately however the XA team have all pretty much said they would rather resign than take on the reins. Thus I am left in a conundrum as to what to do. As a middle ground I will be taking an extended LOA - perhaps for a week, perhaps a month, perhaps a quarter. I will continue to pay the bills, but I intend on having nothing to do with SSTRP - or at least the administrative side. In the interim, I intend on leaving the decision making solely in the hands of Durango, Tonic, and Franco (who was made XA a couple of days ago). They will act much the same as I have - each with unlimited power to act unilaterally, with the assumption that they will seek a consensus amongst other XAs when making decisions of significant consequence for the server. Only where there is a conflict between XAs will I intervene. I am rarely afforded the opportunity to speak plainly but I feel this is one of those occasions where I can let my hair down: To the majority of you who are cunts: fuck you. To the few that were decent people: it has been an absolute pleasure and you were a most welcome relief. I hope you remain when I return. PS. Trilby is the biggest cunt that I've had to deal with over the past two years. If I had the foresight to know what a cunt she'd turn out to be, I would have still confronted Ace & co. over the fact that they were harvesting her personal details for nefarious purposes, because unlike Tril, I am not a total fucking cunt. Virtue signal away, fuckhead - when push comes to shove, when there has ever been a stand to be made, you were always the first to sit.

    Very long LOA, like, very long. 30+ Years

    Best of luck in your future endeavours. Japan is a fun place to visit once you get over those god awful early morning train station jingles.

    I'm officially done

    Given the timing I think this is much more likely down to the fact that you were under scrutiny as MI XO than any of the aforementioned. If you truly felt the way above, you would have left months ago at the same time that most of your friends left. If there was an "XA hit squad" after you, you wouldn't have been allowed to keep the second most senior position on server for six months. You were likely to lose your MI XO because you unilaterally issued secret orders in a PM to a select few NCOs that, at best recklessly but more likely I think intentionally could be translated to "disregard Captain Bailey's orders, and shoot any Marauder that refuses to do the same". The only reason I caught wind of this is because one of your own NCOs thought it was ridiculous and dangerous and gave me a heads up. I note thanks to the secrecy that the first time the Marauders would have became aware of this had it not been for my intervention is when one of your NCOs field executed them. There is a long standing rule amongst factions that you will not interfere in or trade shots with other divisions - instead, if there is a dispute, you quietly come to a compromise or failing that you seek arbitration from me or the XAs. You certainly don't effectively declare war on them - which is what you have done here,. This is exactly what happened with the orders issued by Mulberries. The Mobile Infantry leadership (under Durango and Franco) agreed to it. Officers of any branch can issue orders to any subordinate. As an officer who I think has completed our OCS process no less than twice - you are aware of this. Finally a subordinate cannot disregard an order just because they think it is inappropriate - the recourse there is to take it up with their superior, in this case either Colonel Davidson or General Larsen for example. If there had been concerns raised with me for example I would have gotten ingame to address it immediately - or if I was otherwise indisposed I would have probably suspended the order until I had a chance to review it. You might disagree with the version of events here - but you were scheduled for a court martial where you would have had your opportunity to defend yourself. I'm locking this thread to prevent it snowballing into a drama.
