With Virtue, Liberty, and Independence
, our regiment's motto that our members would abide by in our 13-month journey into Battle Cry of Freedom. The number of great memories I have had from this group and various others are so many that they could be written into a book, however, I will try to keep it short.
From humble beginnings in the summer of 2021 where our discord started off with 30-40 members from previous groups, we have had a lot of ups and downs. I remember the days when I used to attend events by myself because no one in my group at the time had access to alpha and beta keys, the days when we had to abide by an NDA while our members waited in excitement for BCOF footage and updates, the days where I had no idea whether my group would take off and become what we are today. While we had our ups and downs, I would like to say that this group in BCOF was a resounding success and I could not do without the help of the following people throughout our regiment's history.RagingMozart
And the many other 83rd Pennsylvania members not formally mentioned.
It is unfortunate that it has come to this point, but 83rd Pennsylvania will be formally making a move to Holdfast and newer frontiers. At its current state, we do not see BCOF as a sustainable game for our group. However, if it ever returns to its former glory or anywhere near that, then the 83rd Pennsylvania shall come back in full force as one of BCOF's longest-lasting and dominant forces on the field. I wouldn't call this a formal disbandment as we are still going to continue our operations in other games.
I would like to lastly thank the community and those who supported us throughout our journey. We tried our best to stay friendly with everyone possible and I hope moving forward, the BCOF community can resolve its problems and issues. Good luck to everyone and this is Captain Hess of the 83rd Pennsylvania
signing off to begin a new chapter in our community.
