This announcement post is long overdue, and for that, I can only apologise.
Before we get into things I would firstly like to state that there are absolutely no plans to completely shut down Gontroller. I have always said that as long as people are still playing (no matter how few) we will absolutely do our best to keep the server online.
Gontroller has been a massive part of my life over the past 3 and a half years and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you, the community, to create a high quality server that provided hours and hours of entertianment and enjoyment. A ton of mistakes were made along the way, but there really is no better feeling than seeing people have fun on something you helped to create.
As I am sure you aware, my activity in the past few months plummeted. My once glowing enthusiasm dwindled and I needed to take a break.
It is no secret that I am currently working on a new server, which I hope will one day surpass the success Gontroller once saw. I know some of you will be dissapointed that my efforts are not being focused on revitalising Gontroller, but there are many reasons that it has to be this way. A big rethink and fresh ideas are going to be required to bring the fun back to Faction's.
Gontroller is unfortunately going to be in a bit of a limbo state for a while whilst I focus my efforts on the new project. Whilst we would love to bring someone else in to run the server, we would hate to see them try and milk the community we created for a quick buck and then dissapear after only a few months. Skeggs is (finally ) learning to code so there is always the option of him taking over that side of things in the near future.
Whilst this isn't a goodbye, I would just like to extend a massive thank you to the staff team, old and new. Without them Gontroller wouldn't have succeeded in the way that it did.
I'm sure there are a lot of questions you want answering, so I will do what I can to answer them.
