It is with a heavy heart I share with you that today is my last day on the Battle Pirates team,  and at KIXEYE. I have a had a major life change and I am going to be moving down to Los Angeles.  

I am grateful for the opportunity that I’ve had to work with each and every one of you over the last year.  The game is currently moving in a very positive direction and I am looking forward to changes and updates that are in the works for the Battle Pirates.  

I also think that while it has not been entirely all smooth sailing on the forums here over the past year, that I am leaving the forums in a better place than when I first made my introduction.

CM Chris is going to be stepping in to fill my size 11 shoes here.  You may know him from his time on both Vega Conflict and War Commander Rogue Assault.  He will be your new point of contact going forward.

It’s been an honor and pleasure working with all of you.

    Yip, I agree with the others. If you make a rule about good-bye threads, then stick to it. So I take it since you (the Mods) have allowed this, then you are now going to allow good-bye threads here, after all, you wouldn't want to be seen going back on your word now, would you...

    No it means consistency ....consistent 1 rule for one and 1 rule for another :) 

    All these type of posts I find funny as when they don't go to plan and responses of good riddance come it will be shut usually by the poster :)

    End of the day from the top now it has been said that the game is a mess for want of better words.... By that alone heads must roll and sympathy should not be given... I cant wait to see who is next :)

    I see this as his last WARNING FOR THE PLAYERS. CM Major_Rampage-ABANDON SHIP! I have been reading all the posts from players and Kix employees for a long time and what I read into this is obvious to me. When you jump ship in any job because you see the company is going down, and if you are smart like Rampage is you do not crap on what will be your previous employers because your next employer would see this as a warning that you just got a bad employee.  So, what you do is say only good things about your employers AT ALL TIMES. 
    This is what is called " Being professional ". I am 62 and learned this the hard way in life. This farewell to me is a clever and smart way to WARN others that something is going to happen and it will not be good. Usually it will mean a company is about to fold and when that is happening a company will rake in as much cash as fast as it can before it folds. I have seen a lot of game play offers here on this game and I instantly heard the proverbial ALARM BELLS ringing in my ears months even years ago. RAMPAGE says GOODBYE! but, to me that says i was right to stop coining because I would be wasting my money and time of a dead game. Thank Rampage for confirming my suspicions. . Over and out Captain.
    He was smart enough to see the writing on the wall and plan his escape while still in employment. That is what a smart person would do if they know they need to move on and he did it in style.

    From Wikipedia:
    "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
    is the fourth book of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" written by Douglas Adams.
    Its title is the message left by the dolphins when they departed Planet Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass..."

    Read into that what you will...
