    It’s been extremely evident that I don’t have the drive to keep this server going anymore, so I’ve decided to officially move on. I don’t want to be holding things back. It’s been a fun 3 years. I’ve learned so much from running a community / company, developing a product for passionate players, and have been lucky to have gained friends while doing so.

    This server started as just a hobby but turned into a job. On the positive, it got me to where I am today: I got my dream job out in my dream city (Los Angeles) doing what I love, but it also made a hobby that I love feel like work and become less enjoyable.

    I have so many awesome memories of this: trying to ship an iPad to Canada while I was in college, having to deal with customs and finding a UPS store when I didn’t have a car (before Uber); playing drunk Invasion and GoKarts at night with friends on Teamspeak, and then just having hundreds of people enjoy something I helped create.

    I transferred everything over to @FlamingPaw and he will be officially taking over. I paid off the bills for a month in hope that whatever revenue is gained, he can put right back into the server to help grow it again as it desperately needs some love. I will still be around on Skype for anyone that wants to talk :)

    We've had our ups and downs ever since I joined the old server over 3 years ago.

    I was around on day 1 when Shock was still getting set up and you and Travis were in teamspeak slowly getting everything ready. Have been a fan of SNW ever since then.

    Without you Shock wouldn't have made it to where it is today or even exist. And without SNW I wouldn't be interested in Computer Science or anywhere in the Technology field. So thank you for creating a fun place to play with friends, and for allowing me to get experience in something I want to pursue as a career.

    Good luck with Super League, maybe I'll see you around Malibu or Ventura sometime :)
