Title: It's been a pleasure.
Post by: Tardet on January 15, 2018, 05:57:20 am
I doubt it will come as a surprise to most of you after the recent events (me backing up from the 7v7 Tournament, leaving the 85e etc ..) but I'm going to stop Napoleonic Wars actively (and all other warband modules for that matter). Now I know that people saying they were 'leaving' has been a thing pretty much since the birth of the community and making a post to 'announce' it, can be seen as highly pathetic by a few. But I've always been one from cringe topics and it actually kind of bothered me to go without saying a lil' good bye.

I have been playing warband for nearly 7 years now and never really completed stopped it, only gave more focus to certain communities like native when I was a bit tired with NW in 2016 for instance. In every communities I've played in, warband wise, I've always felt the need to involve me as the best of my communities because I don't know any other way to do it, simple as. But despite me thinking at some point that Native was going to have the upper-hand on NW, forced to admit that it wasn't the case. Napoleonic Wars will always be my first and best community despite the amazing experiences and encounters I've made on Native too (also part of the reasons why I don't post a message on Taleworlds for example). I've also always told myself that the day I wouldn't feel the vibe, even not a little, I would stop. And this day has come. There is only very few stuff left to clear such as who is going to replace me as moderator of the French forum and its something Carabino and I have already been looking into but for the rest, my posts on the forums and my in game activity have already been decreasing by a large margin those last few days/weeks and it won't become better as the time goes.

I know many people are going to expect a 'Tardet's novel' or something along that line, with me thanking all the people who mattered in those seven years. Well you're going to get a novel one way or another because I can't summarize things for shit even if my whole life depended on it however, true is that to give to those people the recognition they actually deserve, it would take me approximatively the same time needed to write an actual novel, like a book one.

However, a question which often came back when I was discussing with people throughout the years was to explain what were the reason(s) which kept me interested and motived to involve myself in different aspect of the M&B communities and especially on Napoleonic Wars. Among all the answers I could have think of, from the weird-but-unique gameplay which has always fascinated me, to the high competition which never cease to existed, and the diversity of the events that are organised, there is one which always stood out more than any others.

Mount and Blade Warband effectively represents 7500h of my life, the time spent on Napoleonic War being approximatively 50% of it if not more. 7500h. 325 days. 450000 minutes. 2700000 seconds. Nearly a whole year playing that game. And if I don't regret a single second of it, this is mainly because I was given this unique chance to encounter thousands of exceptional people which all impacted my gaming experience in one way or another. I've never been part of the greatest players, never the most talented leader, certainly not the best event organizer. And despite what people may think, I do strongly believe there are hundreds of people who contributes daily into making this community a better, more enjoyable and more interesting place; way better than I will ever do, but who get eventually unnoticed. However, if there is one thing I've always been good at, it’s always seeing the best in most people. Or at least trying to.

My last message is dedicated this to all the wonderful members of this community I had the chance to meet. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Words will never do enough justice to your greatness.

I had a blast.

Thanks!

...

Appreciated you took the time to drop a message nontheless man. Good luck for the RGL versus the 85e, its going to be an amazing match, that I have no doubt.

...

The fact you took the time the time to write a message despite us never talking is truly touching. Thanks a lot for your words man!

...

From the time I've met you in the 91st to the 'short' but really enjoyable moments we had in the 5v5 NA Leagues, it goes without saying it was a shared pleasure to know you and consider you as a friend and I will hardly ever be able to forget you as we'll undoubtably stay in touch. Thanks for everything positive you've brought to me  Fwuffy, our relation had this 'magic' touch only NiP fangays can understand.

The cavalry community still has some bright days as long as people like you are still around. Was a pleasure riding against such a talented leader and player.

Can't say meeting you was a pleasure but when you don't have the choice, you do with what you've right?! Jokes aside, you're a bit of a silly sometimes but I'm atleast twice as worse as you and its still good to see people standing for what they are nowdays. Thanks for all those wonderful moments we had friend, I will buy Bannerlord for sure but for now, I know its for the SP mostly. I'm open for surprises tho!

...

This tournament we won together surely was one of the worse moment in my life.

:-*

:-[ :-* ::) :'(

...

The only regret I have is meeting and talking to you so late. You've one of those amazing and refreshing personality which certainly positivly influenced my last year on NW. Don't search too far for a replacement such as the one you described, you won't find it except by looking at a mirror.

Had a wonderful time playing with a NA god, Sleek is washed up.

I will miss you Tardet. I still remember when we had a huge beef on the old K-KA thread. But then later I added you on Steam and now we are close to best friends in this community. Your work here around the forums and also on TaleWorlds is really astonishing. You have left a huge mark within the Competitive aspect of the game. Not to forget your loads of work as moderator.

I hope I can still catch you sometimes on Steam. We had a huge blast together in the 17e. I wish you best of luck in all your endeavors. I hope we can still talk to each other from time to time on Steam or even on Teamspeak.

The first time you came into a 3eVolt event a while back, it was such a blast to have you! I remember everyone asking you to pronounce CplFop with the French accent xD From then it was always great to have you in an event and be in our community.

I will miss you Tardet, you're an amazing person and good luck with everything! <3

Good luck in the future !

Playing against the 75e as the 7te was always great fun and one of the few enjoyable 1v1s I played. I mostly know you as one of the most experienced and friendliest french players there is. Being together in the 92nd, I also appreciate you as a person.
I always compared Moskito and me to you and Sinjide due to the fact that you two are a competent melee duo and especially not arrogant. (as other french players nowadays)

Your value to this community is overwhelming and quite impressive, as almost anybody here knows you or your work. I wish you good luck for the future on whatever you are doing.

Ps: One MacFie is way better than 100 MacFarlans :)

Some do and have excellent reasons for it, i'm far to be perfect, trust me. Thanks for your comment anyways Casazar, was a pleasure knowing and talking to you, as you too have been more than a valuable asset for this community.

Thanks aswell for your comment Noswill, we have a lot of common memories, and some of those actually built the community the way it is nowdays. I think its safe to assume Sinjide and I have the same respect for you and Moskito has you undoubtably have been my favorite german duo for years. #Oreos  And there is no superior ones between MacFie or MacFarlane. Both simply win NWLs in spectular fashion, together.

From that point forward I'm going to lock this topic as I don't want the thread to turn into trashtalks or whatever. Thanks once more for all your positive comments, everyone.
