Who remembers the last one of these that I did that I deleted because I was really toxic in game?

Hopefully me leaving now, the image many of you have of me is different, and that I'm leaving on friendly terms as opposed to just being a loudmouth idiot again.

I've been on MRP since day one, and it's been such a fun experience and adventure, despite the ups and downs. I've held a magnitude of roles, made friends who are fantastic, and even gained some real life organisational skills (ik I need to touch grass)

I could sit here and write a huge thank you to each individual player who I'll miss dearly, but nobody really cares about that, and public displays of adoration are not really my thing. So instead, I'll opt it to the entire community.

MRP has helped me through rough times, very rough times, times where I wasn't myself and the only thing preventing me from falling off the edge was a garrysmod server. Mental health isn't exactly something that comes to me naturally, so when it falters I drop HARD. When I first started playing MRP, it gave me enough joy to simply get through a day, and that was enough.

I first started in ISAF, and I was the first EVER player on MRP to make my way through the ranks in order, no skips, no cooldown breaks, nothing, each rank, one after the other, all the way up to COL. Being COL of ISAF was so much fun for me, it gave me chance to really make the regiment my own in a way I don't think anyone has really managed to do yet. Of course, COLs had a little more autonomy back then, I don't think people could rebrand their regiments that easily anymore.

I then made it to LTCOL in AG, before the week of mega toxicity and the !sslay * incident. I still don't remember basically anything from that week, but that's when I first left.

Then back in AG and all the way to GRM! I'd like to think I was a good GRM for the most part, definitely had far too many people come to me with their personal problems on MRP, but other than that, it was great being at the pinnacle of the USSR, and the highest rank on the server for a couple of weeks before I left.

GRM wasn't really too much fun for me and I've never really kept that a secret, but it did allow me to reorganise an entire team, and it did give me that special feeling I had when I was reforming ISAF all that time ago.

So what's next for me?

65 hour work weeks! I've got two jobs now, bills are quite expensive and I have a family to provide for, can't do that lording over a fictional side on MRP unfortunately.

Everyone always says they aren't coming back, but in this instance, I don't think I can, maybe I will in the future, but if I do then something's gone wrong and not according to plan. I turn 25 in September, and I'm a bit uncomfortable playing a game which, despite being from my own childhood, is now occupied by people considerably younger than me.

In all honesty, unless I have an abundance of free time and an inner circle of older players, I don't think I'm coming back to MRP. It saddens me to write this and it's starting to dawn on me slightly, but sometimes we have to just face what's best for ourselves and just pull the trigger.

I would finally like to say thank you to the senior staff team who decided to take another chance on me when I returned last August, I hope you don't think that chance backfired, although I doubt I'd have made GRM if it did.

I remember accepting your CO app in AG, and it was the best decision I've ever made
seeing you working yourself up to GRM, shows that you are competent and friendly

I will miss you,

As much as we've had our working differences, you were a great member of NATO, USSR and the Game Master Team and you will be sorely missed. The effort you've put into your roles is second to none and you have been a vital member of the community.

I hope you return at some point, even as a one-off to play as a Private as you are always welcome here.

Good luck in all future endeavours.

Good bye Valk, you will be sorely missed. I enjoyed working with you when I was a staff member and was someone I could always rely on the game master team without fail.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavours!

Saddens me that you think I hate you, don't hate you at all, my reaction to it was a case of 'you muppet' more than anything!
