Incontrol passed away. Once more, my heartfelt condolences to his loved ones. Thank you so much Geoff - ever since I was 15 years old or so (which was almost another 15 years ago), I watched your content and enjoyed it to great extent.
When TotalBiscuit passed away, I already felt really bad although I never met him in person. The same happened now. Sometimes, when the people that somewhat, somehow leave a mark in your life die, you realize this mark. I never realized how much StarCraft, how much the personalities revolving around this game and how much even this very platform formed me as a person. I spent so many hours playing this game, watching this game, writing stuff here, I got to know people from the internet in the best way possible.
One could say that TL shaped me and although I rarely play or watch SC2, I still drop by here every now and then, only to look at the front page for nostalgic reasons. When Kim Phan dropped her good bye note here, I once more realized what huge history this site has. When TL CSGO won ESL Cologne, I saw Nazgul on stage, and I thought of the way this organization has made and how far it has come ever since believing in a game called StarCraft.
TL.net servers as a reminder, over and over again, that it is not only possible to achieve your dreams. The world is full of likeminded, wonderful people, and I had the honor and pleasure to be part of those people for a while. I've moved on ever since, real life caught up, job and kid and wife and everything, but at this point, I'm looking back to the years I've spent here and in sc2.
So, yeah, nothing more in particular. Just a big thank you to Geoff. To TotalBiscuit. To this community and in a way also to the very game. <3 keep it up and never let yourselves down, everyone.
