(10:18:40 PM) sage_eveo: Sick Tight leaving WTF *hugs*

To: Controlled Chaos,
It is with sadness and regret that I must inform you, Sick Tight will be leaving the alliance effective immediately.
For 3 years.. many of us have been up here.. we've seen our corp split.. had friends come and go.. made it into one NC alliance.. then made another NC alliance. Now, things are not the same.. Personally, I never have enjoyed Fade & Pure Blind as regions in and of themselves (loved EVERYONE in them.. even MH!!).. and the last 6 months of pounding away.. never-ending super serious fleets.. we tried.. we had fun.. and now after all this time.. if I may steal a line from Envy on the Coast, it feels like throwing punches at ocean waves.
Like so many others have felt.. we're strung out.. we're done.. we love you all so so much.. but to stay is an agony I will no longer endure nor inflict on those that wish for something new.
We have achieved much in WTF.. we beat all expectations.. but the direction we head in now disinterests me and many. Politically, we witnessed the lack of original commitment of Goons in the war, coming in once it was too late and now we’re put in a position to work more closely with them. Although Goons have been fun with some pro fc’s, solid organization and bringing good fights with good pilots and even chill to party with RL, we were an NC alliance, not Deko.. and after the way it played out.. just doesn’t sit right with some folk.
We need a break from the area.. it is time for us to move on.. no sov.. no sov warfare.. no JB’s.. no space to really call our own.. something we have to carve out for ourselves.. from scratch.. with some NC friends beside us.. and we are not alone.
Sick Tight is joining Brick Squad in Aridia/Delve. 2-3 more corps in alliance have also decided to join up. I have to let them announce it as they see fit. We will be fighting alongside Morsus Mihi. To say this is going to hurt WTF is an understatement.. I know.. I am sorry.. there is nothing more to be done at this point. We are off to find out what fun was in this game that RMT and CCP see fit to near-ruin. If we find it, we’ll let you know.. you know how to keep in touch.. you are all welcome in my fun fleets.. we are going to miss so many of you.. just know it wasn’t your fault.
Full disclosure: As a result of taking 1/3rd+ the corps with us (we may end up with half+), I have made a withdrawal of funds from the holding corp and moon goo roughly equal to our size. There is plenty more in a reserve fund and no danger of sov bills going unpaid. I dipped into fuel reserves slightly, but left the ships and other various items alone. Isk will be used to pay for fuel etc. for our long trip down. I am sure someone might be grumpy about this, but I think it’s more than fair. Your ongoing moon goo replaces it in roughly 2 weeks. There was no discussion on this issue of any kind and is entirely on me, but I wasn’t in the mood to discuss it and be told ‘no’.
Where to go from here? You may or may not know this, but your corp may be joining us.. we look forward to seeing you. For those of you that stay or go your own paths… please.. keep in touch.. I speak for everyone in Sick Tight when I say, we love you all.. we loved flying with you from the day we met you.. and not a day will go by in this game that your memories and efforts wont resonate with myself, my corpmates and the blues we go off to fly with. The space was Pure Crap.. but you guys made it Pure Fun.
Farewell WTF.. take care neighbors.. so long Mostly Harmless.. may we meet again deep in space, tagged blue.. with DRF, PL or NC. in our crosshairs.
Your loving WTF FC,
Keef Drow / Lucian James
