My Achilles Heel...Goodbye :)

Good Evening HWS Community,

This post is of a different nature and I try to keep it short…*try :wink:

I’ve been admin on HWS for the past 8 months or so and it really has been a ride!

It’s had its ups, and its downs…

but overall it has been superbly amazing!
I’ve made some great friends and really been involved in something that is incredible.
HWS all started from the idea of 2 guys, They turned that idea into something that hundreds of people now look to as their source of entertainment, some for hours each day…others maybe a few here and there….the point is, it means something to a lot of people.

It means a lot to me.

It’s a pretty privileged position to be instilled with trust. Trust that you will do the right thing, for the players and for the good of this creation that is HWS

the driving force for me has always been the players, to give you all the best experience, to help out when things are crappy from an Alpha game lol…
My wife to be would probably leave me if she knew the hours I’ve put into this role (especially because it’s not paid) lol
Lucky* for me we have both been serving in the British Army for the past 7 years and so we have always had a lot of free time apart, she’s been gaining loads of actual qualifications in preparation for leaving….where as I have been playing Empyrion lol

The time has come however, she has left the Army and so have I…and now real life

and guess what, apparently people have to actually work for a living….go figure :stuck_out_tongue:

anyway, it comes with a heavy heart that I am saying goodbye….hopefully not forever, but at least for the next 3-6 months or so.

So as of this evening, I am NO longer Admin on HWS

I’m going AWOL

this isn’t the last you’ve seen of me, I will come back….but for the imminent future, I’m outta here!!

Thank you all so much for the patience, the kind words and the friendships

A special mention to Andrea, Gareth and Zappe…when I started over a year ago on HWS…without you guys being awesome help at the start I never would of stuck on HWS….even after I stole Andreas ship and dismantled her base….she was willing to help this rude ignorant noob :sweat_smile:

Take it easy all of you and enjoy life, both ingame and out :smile:

and of course the biggest thanks to RexXxus and Jachua for creating something amazing that has changed my life over the past months.
Thanks for your time

Achilles (aka Sam)

Just starting into HWS a few months ago, I havnt had an opportunity to be able to speak or interact with you, however I have heard friends and other players speak nothing but kind words. I have a lot of respect for the administrators on HWS, and hope to see you in the future.

P.S. Get your wife into the game. It will cure it all.
