Under the current circumstances, I felt it was only right for me to take the time to say a little something.
As some of you may know, our partner gaming community, GamersRoost has just recently shut down their servers, and closed their forums. As to the extent of the shutdown, I am currently unsure how far reaching it is, as I have not been able to get in contact with either Jason or Josh from Gamersroost to speak with them directly, and I do not intend to speculate.
Before GamersRoost was founded, both Jason and Josh were very active members within our community, and indeed both served on our Council at one point in time to assist in the leadership tasks of the community (back when we were super regimented and crap). I am honored to say that I have known these two fine gentlemen for almost three years at this point, and it pains me very much to see the message that is currently up on their homepage, especially given how hard they both have worked to build such an awesome gaming community.
In addition to helping to build Omega Force for so long, the lads at GamersRoost also hosted our Teamspeak server for us as well as a few of our game servers for several months after GamerRoost was founded.
I've worked very closely with Josh from the the very heyday of DayZ Overpoch up until it's death, and more recently in our endevours in Exile Mod. In a way we really were kind of helping to build each other's servers and make them better. I helped Josh with .sqf scripting in Arma, and he provided me with his vast Technical Knowledge regarding the setting up and maintenance of Windows Servers and online networks.
Omega Force owes a lot to these guys, and I would like to encourage everyone who was a part of their community to keep in touch with these fine gentlemen, as they are two of the most genuine guys I have met online.
I will be trying to get in touch with them to learn more, but until then I will leave you all with this.
