This is the hardest post I've ever had to make here. Recently I've been promoted at work temporarily to Assistant Manager of my department while my Assistant Manager has back surgery. It is a 3 month job which will increase my weekly pay quite substantially. Its a 6 day a week job that will require the majority of my attention while I also finish school. Long story short is I chose the position.
I'm effectively resigning from the Brigade. I'm sorry. I'm literally upset about this decision and I know I'm letting a lot of people down. If some of you haven't noticed my passion for leading has been slipping. I've become impatient and apathetic to a lot of people on here. That's not who I am. I've juggled the brigade and the rest of my life for the last six months. I've given up all hobbies except this one and I'm attached at the hip to this place. This hurts me a lot but I have no choice. It isn't right for me to disappear or continue leading with no passion or time. I helped build this place. I normally don't show emotion in my leadership but its safe to say my eyes aren't dry as I type this.
I've lost the passion and time for gaming and I'm also sad to say that I've canceled my trip to MLG Columbus. I don't know what else to say.
Thank you for following me over the years. Thank you for believing in me and trusting me with the leadership of you here. Thank you for being my friends. Just thank you period.
I'm sad to say also that I won't be back. As mentioned gaming is taking a backseat for a long time. I honestly have nothing else to say. I'm not good at typing my thoughts.
You could never fail us Syphex, you've been the best CO any of us could ever ask. You came to us like the respectable man you are and all of us know you to be. I say this with a full heart when I say good luck sir. Let nothing ever hold you back in life and just inspire others like you have here and lead like you've lead here. I'm confident you will fine your place in the world and make your mark on history.
Thankyou for your service to the brigade Syphex. You will be deeply mised Colonel.
As with you, I'm not so good at putting my emotions into words, but know that I am very sad to see this happen. But as I've always said, real life should come first. Especially when it is something so important as this.
All I can say is you have been one of my most inspirational leaders during my time here. You have made this place a home from everyone that has set foot here and I want to thank you. Good luck with your job, school and other RL occurrences. If I may ask, who will be taking over Echo?
You haven't failed any of us Syphex. You lead us for a long time, (a short time for me) but we all appreciated your leadership. You will always be remembered in our heart of hearts and never will any of us forget the impact you had on us. For me it was your encouragement to help those that needed to.
Your time is spent your travels old
The way was quick and the grass grew old
Over yonder never farther
than a stones throw away
You helped the young and taught the old
Through winters cold did you lead very bold
The troops on the way to victory
Gone now through springs warm buds
never will be forgotten the glory
Well Spyhex It's been an honor serving under one of the most toughest leaders in the brigade. You never failed in the brigade but only pushed yourself harder and tried to push and move us all to be a better brigade members. Thank you for being ther for all of us . Good luck in your future
It sucks to see you go and you will feel like everyone that replies to this thread sooner or later. Life comes and first and I know I told you this before this was posted but I would say for the benefit of everyone here.
If anyone was in the same position as you right now, they would have done the same thing.
So go, life your life the way you want it; we will still be here fighting the good fight and you will be forgotten within the Brigade as a great leader who helped us reach new heights.
So as a good Star Trek reference. (Yes, my brother watch a ton of it)
Live Long and Prosper

Syphex, there is nothing that I could use against you on the subject of leadership. Your time here as the CO of Dropshock has been one that brought but the biggest positive impact on the Brigade in a while. I'll hope to see you once again.
You have not failed us. This is life, and the real life things have taken over. It takes a lot for someone to write something like this and admit that they don't want to lead, or do not have the passion any more to lead. I wish you the best luck in life. Do great things, be the best you can.

I will miss you dearly as a leader, a teammate and a friend. I do not feel that you failed me in any way. Without you, I would not be here today and more importantly, the Brigade would not be here today. Your leadership is inspirational and I'm more than sure you will carry that inspiration into your career in the near future.

You held this Brigade/family together Syphex. That's all that really matters. I'm going to be here for quite a while. I wish you all the best with your new job/life. You are starting out on a new adventure, but you must leave some things behind in doing so. I understand.
I have the up most respect for you. Although our time together has been brief, I greatly enjoyed your company, I'm not going to be able to forget you. Thank you for the time and effort you have put into the brigade. You've left the brigade in good hands.
Everyone is born with wings to fly. Only most people don't try to spread their wings and fly or worse they don't believe they can and all they do is look enviously upon those who have found theirs and begun to soar!I will not be one of these people, and when I fly it will not be with fake wings made of wax. They will be my own wings and I will bring myself up to the top and touch the heavens!
