To all our family and friends
To our beloved family and friends,
Almost 10 years ago a young man had a dream to unite players around the East Coast by opening a single Counter Strike server to enjoy a game he loved playing but had no idea that That one server would turned into a global community which fostered more than just a gaming community- it blossomed itself into a family whom hundreds of members can once proudly call themselves TrU members. Because of the dedication and uniqueness of each person who graced their presence in our server we were able to separates ourselves from all other communities. With the deepest sadness I am announcing today the permanent closer of our servers. This decision has to be one the hardest decisions the management members made as a group. We have fought to keep the servers open for the enjoyment of others, but we have humbly admitted defeat- for now. It’s without a doubt TrU has seen the very highs and lows in our many years which our servers have opened its arms widely to any players who respected our rule- play with respect for each other. TrU forever thanks everyone soul who has touched our community- we could never had made all the special memories without you. I hope we have done the same for you. If so, our goals were achieved.
My personal journey with TrU servers started back in 2003 when I was trolling around for a server that I could play in without being called a “noob” or “you suck.” Now, I can’t say that didn’t happen in TrUklan’s 24/7 NO AWP/AUTO server, but the people in there were so happy to play together that I thought there was something special about this server. I set it as my favorite and came back the next day and every day after. If you told me today that I would call some of these players- my family, I would have said you’re nuts- I think we know now I am the lucky one. I can go down the list of hundreds and tell you one thing about that player. Our Community has seen members and regulars grow from boys to men, from junior high to graduating college to marriage and starting a family and sadly death. We are grateful for each of your to allow us into your lives and share those special moments- Thank you again. I ask you, how many communities can boast those facts? A genius one quoted- “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.-Albert Einstein
You all were MY miracle.
Thank you KRz| Lamchops aka Lam who was the first to welcome me into the servers and Bill aka Kellendros who said- “I’ll join TrU if you joined”, well buddy- look how far we’ve come now.
Secret, Joel, Melly Jelly, Ryan (Phrozen), Orbital, Evil Sima,), Wakk0, Kevin, Hey (Eric), Maaja (::Wink:: =P)- I don’t need to say good bye because I know each one of you are forever etched in my heart and plus I’ll see you guys this summer.
To Andrew( Bullet_bait) and Andy (Vvrikl3)- my soul mates, the only two people that can truly cause my blood pressure to shoot through the roof and have me rage via vent like a mad person- I am grateful to God for showing me that friendship can develop anywhere and through any venue. Thank you.
To J1n aka Duy- Thank you for TrU. Take a moment and look at all the lives you have entwined and smile with pride. When you started TrU, you not only started just a clan, you started a family, a family whose roots are spread everywhere in the world. I thank you and we thank you.
We may have shut down the servers, but our Facebook community and website will be kept open for those who would still like to keep in touch. Maybe one day we’ll open our servers up again, but until then… NO SPAWN CAMPING!
With lots of love-
TrU|Texas118 and TrU Management
