The King is dead…. Long live the new King! (part 1)

As some of you may have heard by now our guild leader, David, is leaving the guild and the game. I have considered David a friend, even though I have only known him personally for the last eight months. He had shown me trust by giving me the rank of officer in the guild after only having been in the guild a few weeks. I have tried to reward that trust with loyalty. David is one of those people who you either love or hate. I know anybody reading this blog will probably agree  that we loved him for his honesty and integrity. This integrity is what led him to his decision to leave the guild. He was entertaining and thought-provoking on the Inside Azeroth podcast. His work behind the scenes of recording and editing the podcast (Steve does this as well) put the shows quality on par with other top World of Warcraft podcasts. His leadership and recruiting for the guild led to the creation of three very good ten man ICC teams and was on course to create a fourth. The very first team is on the verge of downing the Lich King on a realm that is sadly behind in progression. The guild David created has a family friendly atmosphere and yet the freedom for people to speak their minds. (as a matter of fact members of both David’s and My families are in the guild) David found very trustworthy officers who have great patients, a willingness to listen and yet the strength to stand up for what they believed in. David found raid leaders who learned the raids inside and out and who were very good at developing strategies that are effective for the raid composition. David found raiders who either knew their class or had the willingness to learn. Best of all David helped create friendships between people who are very different, friendships that may last a lifetime. I wish David well as he goes on in his life. I wish the best for him and his family. I hope our path will cross again someday sooner, rather than later… I heard something about a new Star Wars MMO. (just don’t know if I am ready to play Sith.)

Best Wishes, Your Friend..
