..annnd here we are at another May fourth! Twelve years old we turn and though the graphics, sound effects, community and overall gaming reality has changed significantly since the late 90s the Crack Clan paradigm remains tried, tested and true. It is with a hearty chuckle and grateful clasping of hands that Iâ€™d like to thank everyone that continues to steadfastly stick to their guns, continuing to share and shed e-bullets as well as honest, entertaining interactions and a competitive spirit that remains appropriately dynamic, rewarding and overwhelmingly long-lived.
It is with no reservation that I reach out to competitors, administrators, detractors, supporters and our loyal membership with a deep sense of gratitude for whatâ€™s been and promises to continue to be one of the greatest collaborative online journeys ever taken. Remaining agile, democratic, open-minded and moral is still very much the case as it was twelve years ago. Allowing relatively deep internal autonomy and continuing the pursuit of initiatives that truly contribute toward the longevity of online competitive gaming prevail as Crack Clan marches on.
Thanks to all that manage to keep it real and pour blood, sweat and tears in to one of the longest-lived organizations of its type on the planet. Thanks to those that persevere with their strong sense of dedication amidst an otherwise folding, chaotic, flash-in-the-pan environment – it is this adherence to honesty, compassion, hard work and common-sense that makes this all possible and worthwhile. None of this would even be conceivable without selecting and keeping members that hold these core values as true and keeping the others at bay. Happy twelve year anniversary Crack Clan, hereâ€™s to many more!
