I am of the opinion that this has been a very successful year for us. Not only we have extended gaming slots in our server and we even had 3 online & running servers at time, but we have managed to break the record of maximum number of active recruits. I can't remember the exact count, but it surely was above 7 recruits at once. With new people coming, we met new friends that are now forming this community.
During the year, we have welcomed some of our fellow members who have joined back to our clan after long time, including Detective, Referee and MouseIT. We can see more of our fellow members being around - just like StreetCRIME who has been active in our servers recently as well, and I personally hope he will re-join us. Some important rank changes has also been made. JoLTy has been granted the rank of Captain - so he is now part of our leadership. Another special rank went for Xyzzy, our member who is the first to have granted the rank of Honorary member. This is some kind of new era ETS will follow.
We are also celebrating Captain's won fight against his fried computer. He even said he is back in the game now, so let's hope his power source wont send him back to knees the following year. It is good to mention that we are keeping our fingers crossed for LessLuck, who is at this moment preparing the New Year's and Christmas podcast. 'The pain is real', at least that's what he said. Another conclusion of this year puts Struis chill back to his leather couch, because there hasn't been any recruit that would take up his rank of the oldest man in this clan.
I, and the Elite Tactical Squad wish you all the best to the new year! We hope to see you all in the server!
