    I'm resigning from both adminship and FITH effective immediately.

    I would like to say that I will always cherish the memories made here and the friends I made. I will not be removing anyone, and will still be visiting the server.

    The painful truth is FITH feels like something different from when I first joined it, and at this point my involvement is solely because of the fond times I had in the past, and not out of a desire to actively help FITH move forward. I think the best thing is to step out of the way and let the current leadership work on things as best they can.

    I'm not going to cut ties with the community, and I'll always be down to play games with people, I just am stepping back, as I don't feel I'm giving the community the level of attention it deserves from an active member.

    It's really sad seeing you go.

    Thanks for all you have done for FITH. We won't forget it.

    I'm here to chime in and I know this feels sudden. This is not to take away from Darzie's actions and in fact I support and respect his decision. But I feel that making another thread would just be redundant, and seeing how Darzie has more balls to come out and talk about this first, I thought it would make more sense for me to come out especially regarding my absence and general silence in the FITH community.

    Now I still have kept in touch with a few FITH members, but I'm not active with the general community nor the server. I stepped away for some time mainly for personal reasons and temporary disinterest of TF2 at the time. As a result, I have stopped wearing my tag whenever I'm on Steam and never really talked with any of the other community members and shamefully, unfriended a lot of them. Because of this, I will also be resigning as both a FITH Admin and member. Like Darzie, my involvement with FITH has not been focused on helping the community progress, and in addition, I feel there are more active members who are more than willing to take my place in helping grow this family. It has been several years since I joined the family and only when I became admin not too long did it begin to put things into perspective for me on how much did I actually accomplish for the group.

    I know it might sound disingenuous on my part since it may seem like I only now decided to speak up when Darzie is doing it too and so soon to be calling quits, but the truth is, I have been thinking and sitting on it for the past few months.

    Likewise, I will still keep in contact with the community and more than willing to "FUCK EM UP". But as of right now, my position belongs to someone more deserving and passionate about FITH.

    I haven't played with you as much as I have with Darzie, but I'm still sad to see you go. Please do keep in touch and drop by when you find the time!

    I might get be in the minority here, but I never really understood the whole “in game friend” vs “real life friend”. I play and make connections with people that I consider to be friends with no label. That’s how Ive always approached this game.

    If you have made connections, I hope you maintain then in your absence.

    From WA with Love,
