I am resigning from staff, and taking a long break from DayZ. I know I make these statuses from time to time stating I am taking a break and then shortly seen a week later. But I am decided I am taking a break for a good while. I doubt I will, but I might pop on during the weekends briefly, but that's about it. We'll see.
I need to focus on school, and frankly need to get my life in order. I mean I have played 100+ hours in the last two weeks, like holy shit. But to be honest, I have slowly been losing my heart into playing the game lately, as well as attending to my position in staff. It's time for me to move onto other things for now because there's more to life than playing video games and bantering on the forums all the time. So, I have decided to do said "other things".
I appreciated the support and feedback from the community while I was in staff. I've always had positive feedback, so my decision to join back then definitely made an impression on people and that was enough to have kept me wanting to remain on-staff for the time that I was. I should say, that if I have plans to stick around long-term again, that I may consider returning to staff at a later time. Perhaps next year.
To my fellow staff members:
I wanted to thank everyone who accepted me into staff, and it was a honor to work with you all! It's truly amazing to connect with individuals from all over the world, and work along beside them. To me it doesn't matter that it's a video game community, I see it as more than that. I genuinely think we have a good team. Now, it goes without saying, there's room for improvements, but there's no such thing as a perfect staff team. That being said, it's fair to me to say, that this is one of the best staff teams I have seen since I joined this community in 2017. Thanks for that, keep striving forward and work together, push the bad blood aside. We can't all be 100% right, and it wouldn't be human if we all agreed on something. In the end, we should always treat our fellow human beings with respect, by setting emotions aside, and coming to logical conclusions. I haven't encountered any issues, while I was in staff like that, but it's just my word of advice. I wish you all the best of luck!
You go out there and enjoy yourself and take your break and enjoy it, but yeah dayz is addicting and sometimes you don't realize how much lol, enjoy yourself sad to see you go but will msg you for a chat every now and then
Enjoy your break and thank you for all your time, work and effort put into the community as a staff member. It's a shame you have to go so soon.. But real life comes before anything. Best of luck with your future endeavours mate.
