Friends,

I just got a new computer, and for the first time in 6 years have not re-installed SPWaW.

For some months I've been mostly inactive on the play and design fronts, and think my days with SPWaW may be finally over.

I'm telling you this because many of you have become my friends over the years and I didn't want to just disappear without a word.

My main regret is that I never got the chance to meet any of you in person.

May you all stay well and enjoy the game as much as I have.

Warrior,

SPWAW is still my favorite game of all time.  I still play almost every day.  But I can definitely understand your situation.  More and more I feel like Gunnery Sergeant Tom Highway in Heartbreak Ridge when he says, "It's different this time.  I know I'm coming to the end of it."

My focus and concentration isn't what it used to be and I know I'm not as good a player as I was 5 years ago.  Add in health issues (a bad liver) as well as real life issues and it's not the same for me any more.

I still think the game is as good as ever, but I'm not.

I wish you well, Warrior, and all the best in your future endeavors.

--Victor

This is great loss to the game, and community, Steve.

You will be missed! I only hope you have the urge to stop and say hello now and again. I enjoyed many of your scenarios, and you have my thanks for the time and effort you put into them.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

I feel I must add :

SPWaW without Warrior seems....well....I dunno, but it ain't right.

Take care bro.

Thanks for everything Warrior. I know I have loved playtesting your scenario's. You are almost as much as a sneaky b*astard as Wild Bill...

Enjoy life and maybe one day you might say...

Hey I wonder what's new with SPWAW and we will be happy to welcome you back...

Steve,

Sorry to hear you have decided to exit the community. I too came into the SPWAW community playing scenarios designed by WB and yourself...and always appreciated the attention to detail your scenarios entailed.

Eventually, when I took a shot at scenario designing myself I had the good fortune to consult with you from time to time on projects. I learned a great deal from you my friend...and in case I never said it before: thanks!

SPWaW has seen some BIG names slowly drift away over the past 2 years...and while it is indeed sad to see I guess that is just part of life in the gaming community. Hopefully the trickle of people that do drift in will play scenarios designed by people like you and will enjoy and appreciate them...and maybe take that next step and contribute themselves. The greatest legacy any designer can have is to know that he/she gave back and assisted their community to grow...and you have that badge of honor to wear with pride sir.

Don't be a stranger though. Stop in and say "Hi" from time to time like WB does and let us know what you are up to. Take care, best wishes and eternal thanks once more!

It's really sad to see you leaving. A big thank you for all the work you have put into SPWAW (especially those Finnish scenarios etc - allowed to update some of them to Enhanced? ) ! I hope you all the best and blessings - and merry Christmas!

Ps. Also greetings from neadcb who's currently unable to log in here. He wishes you all the best.

Steve,

In the words of the Eagles, "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave."

No matter what, the name "Warrior" will always have an honored place amongst those who have made this game into what it is today, and what it will be tomorrow.

Like you, I have made a number of good and great friendships through this game and community. And like you, I regret that I've still not met all of them. You stand pretty high on that list, friend. :)

I wish you well for the future, whatever it may bring and wherever it may take you. Please stay in touch!

Bernie

That's a sad news indeed!
Some of the first scenarios I ever played are designed by you, Steve.
"Arabian Night" is still nowadays one of may best favourite.

Well, I hope that one day, maybe when the game will be eventually upgraded, you can have the time and willingness to show us again your mastery at scenario's designing.

You will really be missed Warrior, Buona Vita e Buona Fortuna!
Take care, ciao!

Mau Fox.

Well, that sucks.

Certainly is understandable though. Sometimes its good to take a break.

Hope to see you back on the forums even if not posting SPWAW related stuff.

You wouldn't say that if you could see the Dilbert "Surf Naked" T-shirt I'm wearing in that picture.

And I want to thank everybody for the comments. Since I have about 8000 gigabites on this new hard drive, perhaps I might install SPWaW again, but no promises.

That shouldn't stop you from posting, or at least checking-in from time-to-time ...hell, it doesn't deter some of the bums around here!

...and call yourself what you will, you'll always be a REMF to me.
