I left several months back for various reasons but decided to come out of retirement for a few short months. Well, this time I must go and it is rather final. In a week and a half I'll be shipping out for the US Navy. I'll keep this short because there's no need for long, dramatic paragraphs glamorizing my time in the community which I know isn't as well known as others' but this game - and MM - is special to me and has been a part of my life for 3 or 4 years now. I found MM through Crusader - we had been in a Native clan together (BrC) and I joined his MM regiment, the 5te Kurmark Landwehr. I loved the mod but the regiment disbanded. Not long after, I found the game with another BrC friend of mine, Sandman (some of you might remember him). Sandman wasn't the most polite person but his leadership skills left an impression on me that I won't forget. We rolled as the 13th Prussian Rifles for a while, with a leadership change later down the road. But after a while, I decided to strike out on my own and formed the 7de Belgische Bataljon Infanterie Van Linie. It was tough but I persevered and the regiment flourished with some really great guys. We were never the best - though we did have some of the best shots and some of the best melee fighters in our ranks - but we always stuck together and had fun. They were the greatest guys I've ever ran with. We ran for almost 3 years under a few different names. The 7de, the 36ste Belgische Bataljon Jagers, the Chasseurs Leloup. If you happen to pick up one of these guys in your regiment, hold on to him because they're the best guys to be around.
I want to thank Millander, for letting me run with him and the 15e for these last few months. I hope I brought my fair share of glory to the regiment, capturing flags, storming breaches and ramparts. Serving under Millander was truly an honor, I haven't seen such a talented leader since serving under Sandman years and years ago. I wish this game and this community the best of luck in the future years, it's a truly wonderful community and the experience has made a lasting mark on myself. Good luck guys, and keep the random deserts thundering with gunfire. The cardboard bird will be watching over you.
