    You know.. I always thought r2 was all circuitboard and no peripherals. So when I got the chance, I put myself on his "list".

    Holy (insert word that could get me banned from forums)!!!

    All I have to say, it that is was worth every capitalized insult and dirty look I got from Phoenix, to experience that and witness a true master at work.

    I will miss ya, r2. (but I am glad that niklam is sticking around to keep throwing nukes at me, in your absence. There's more than one master still left on w30, at least)

    Oh... and I put something together for you as a going-away present. Will post in a moment.

    Robot

    Deep within a madman's dream
    and evil scientist devised a machine:
    a killer robot, fast and clever
    to wreak havoc on the best World ever…

    World 30 was his birthplace
    Nukes and nobles made his engine race
    Clockwork gears and mechanical parts
    He conquered villas, and won our hearts.

    His attacks were unending
    He didn't mind sending
    Seven Hundred attacks
    to break the enemy's backs

    His targets feared him,
    tribe mates revered him,
    Stacked villas crumbled in
    as his nukes rumbled in.

    Relentless, ruthless, driven, methodical,
    His tactics were sound, his plans diabolical.
    At the sight of his incomings, whole tribes fell to strife
    and his victims developed a bad case of "Real Life"

    People begged him to stop, or threatened retaliation
    but machines show no mercy; have no self-preservation!
    So, without emotion, he carved through the map,
    sparing only his tribe mates and allies and NAPs.

    His circuits ran red, his steam engine boiled
    causing carnage and death, he fought and he toiled
    With hydraulics and cogwheels and nuclear fission
    he followed his programming and fulfilled his mission.

    But he was a machine with one purpose: to Fight
    and as the world aged, it didn't seem right
    to carry that torch while others got passive
    feasting on the barbs, internals, & inactive.

    He'd made his mark and carved his name
    on World 30 and the Tribal Wars game.
    It did not compute, to continue this route,
    So he gave one last shout, and signed off ….
    Robot out.

    The world will be at a sore loss without you R2, but the exodus comes to us all in time. I'm proud to have made your list, and will not soon forget the charm and character you brought to my time here. Yours is truly a farewell worth crawling out of the woodworks for. :p

    Good luck with you and yours in the real world!

    Chris

    @ Raven: Love the poem! About sums it up. :icon_smile:

    I am more than overvalued here, but I will put this in my office. Noone will probably know what that is. Or who wrote it. But I will. And that is what counts at the end of every day.

    7 HUNDRED Thanks Raven :)

    Most things in life that are important are worth the wait and the hard work invested. We know from your efforts on W30 that you are willing to sacrifice and be patient, transfer this to real life and no doubt you will be successful in your chosen field. It's a shame to see you leave but the very best of luck to you R2.

    SFC is banned, but he asked me to post this on his behalf:

    "While, and I deeply regret, I lack the capabilities to reminisce about the wars we have had in the past, or the literal genius of Raven to serenade you with song and wine, I do have the capability to put effort into making you a nice map as my final going away present.
    It's a shame we never got to have a border :icon_razz:
    I marked you in PINK because that color suits you.

    I do remember you sometimes liked to view custom maps so I felt it fitting to make the newest one in your honor, and memory.

    Take care matey, and I hope you like the map. :icon_cool:

    Map in spoiler:

    Farewell;
    ~ SOLDIER. :icon_wink:"


    Needless to say r2, you will be one tough act to follow. :axemen:

    You will be missed.

    r2 you have been there for me many a late night. There isn't a lot to say that I haven't already told you at some point. You are a dear sweet man and my life is richer for having known you. Don't be a stranger!
