RIP, Ranger (in Off-topic)

I'll be the first one to say i'm sad to see you leave. I gave you some crap, a lot of us did, but for my part it was for the sake of CB. I've never had anything against you. We all respect and admire you and your dedication to the game and hopefully there aren't any hard feelings. Hopefully I didn't contribute to this lamentable situation with anything I said.

Just my two cents. RIP Ranger, one of the greatest to play the game.

Yep. We had disagreements like everyone else, but I always felt we came out still friends. I'm sorry to see you go, man.

Definitely one of the best players in the game. Also, funny rants.

Wow man, shame to see you leave. You were playing back when I started playing 3 years ago :o .

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] July 24 2008 4:14 PM EDT


I'd just started to really get to know you this past year, but I've been around forever watching you become one of the top players.

I will certainly miss you. Good luck in life, Ranger, if you do decide to leave us.

Ranger, I don't know if you're actually leaving or not. What you said in chat makes me think you're just stepping back for a while but the mass sale of your gear has me thinking you are leaving.

I just wanted you to know that while I did give you alot of crap, and none of it was "for the sake of CB" but for my own amusement, you were the guy I was jealous of in this game. You worked hard, got to the top, and stayed there. Your gameplay was amazing and, if I could ever figure out half of this game, I'd hope to atleast try to rival you. But you have alot of time and effort into this game and I'll be sad to see it go.

Anyways, hope you're not leaving Ranger. Someday I wanted a character to beat yours.

While this post is nice, please no reason to make one.

As someone stated, playing CB is not work. And when it is not fun anymore, time to move on.

I am just tired right now of all the crap I get from trying to make CB a better game.

And with my personality, I cannot step back. So it is best for me to leave.

Making quite a few happy, some ecstatic, and others sad.

But it has been a fun ride.

o you gone leave again and then buy the highest char like last time, well cya in 2-3 month

King July 24 2008 4:50 PM EDT

Sorry to see you go, a lot of people put forward suggestions that get shot down and I understand that can get disheartening.

I wish you luck in your sale although I can't really see anyone with enough money to spend on games to make a reasonable offer on the package and selling everything individually would be work which you hate so much so hopefully you don't leave.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] July 24 2008 4:57 PM EDT

Wow, sorry to hear that. It's always sad when a game loses its sparkle for someone. You've been a legendary player and added a lot to the game. Hopefully someday you'll be able to return and find this fun again. Try a NCB sometime ;) Take care, Ranger!

Hate to see you go m8.... I have had fun trying to keep up with you strategically and I will always miss our little conversations.... I see where you are coming from but I really feel you should stay and just play along with us ^_~

Mikel July 24 2008 7:57 PM EDT

Just turn off chat, and ignore posts from everyone.

VivaPinata July 24 2008 8:04 PM EDT


Please don't trample on my heart too hard as you leave.

Making quite a few happy, some ecstatic, and others sad.

I'd say the other way around, making quite a few sad, some miserable and others happy.
If there were 5 people I'd think would NEVER EVER leave, you were one of them...

Take good care and hopefully see you again someday(soon).
All the best wishes IRL.

You will be missed my friend. Good Luck with your life and your sweet that car is cool.

Cube July 24 2008 11:07 PM EDT

Playing CB may not be work, but you were always contributing, and to me you always seemed to keep a level head, and stayed to the point in discussions, that will definitely be missed.

ResistanZ2 [The Knighthood] July 24 2008 11:40 PM EDT

Damn, now who is gonna be the one that we all look up to and someday hope to become as strong as?

A living CB legend. Hope you find happiness in whatever you decide to do.

BluBBen July 24 2008 11:50 PM EDT

I'll miss you Ranger! But as you state yourself, CB is not a work. If you don't find it funny and challenging anymore, you can as well quit.

/me bows to the greatest CB player of all time

AdminShade July 25 2008 10:55 AM EDT


You can't simply go, not without telling me!

:'( sniff...

forktoad July 25 2008 11:19 AM EDT

He's actually leaving?!?!? Can't believe it. Totally supportive of whatever reason it is though.

Xenko July 25 2008 11:26 AM EDT

Sad to see you go Ranger. You've got to be one of the longest players of CB. If it isn't fun, then you are right, there is no point in playing.

Best of luck for whatever you are going to do in the future.
