First I just want to say we really dont use this nifty news feature enough, which we should probably start doing more for things outside of the box such as game/product reviews, personal opinions, awesomely random facts and even a rant or two. That being said, from time to time we do need to use this to discuss actual news regarding the Cut Throats clan, so here is one of those 'serious' ones.

A huge amount of thanks goes to K9 Carlos for footing a huge portion of the bill with the help of donations for the last, well, forever. Because of him, we have been able to pillage to our hearts content for the last 3-odd years, and while most of the time K9 wasnt even using the server himself. (Though we all yearn for the day we get to see K9 ingame again, and cutlass him) Massive and I will be handling the server payment from this point forward, if anyone would like to donate towards keeping her up, more information can be found here. Keeping her up is exactly what we want to do right now too, for it's time to bring a little change to the house that K9 built.

With BFP not seeing as much activity as it used to and with several other servers such as SD's new public server up and running, we have deceided to begin taking steps to change the state of our server away from Battlefield: Pirates. This wont be an immidiate change with many arrangements still to be made, but in the very near future, the Cut Throat's Public Server will no longer be a functional Battlefield: 1942 server, and will rise anew on the Source Engine. We're holding off on more information for now on the conditions of the server's transformation into shiny new Source-ness, but you can guess it has somthing to do with that HL2 mod we enjoy saying absolutely nothing about.

Thats all for now in terms of actual news. Un-actual news you say? Sadly I havn't got much. The white house did recently call for the construction of an Orbital Battlestation, which is awesome and a threat to secret rebel bases everywhere. Stay classy Cut Throats.

-Sean

/cue Survivor closing music and Jeff Probst putting out the Cut Throat BFP torch

Seriously, this is a pretty remarkable event. I know I don't really give a damn about BFP anymore, I won't lie at all, but this is a very big event. No more CT BFP server. I think we all owe it one more good game of Pirates - the game that brought us together. It really is time to move on though - you might think that I may be downplaying it, but that's really tough for me to say after knowing firsthand just what went into BFP 1.0 .

I really want to emphasize the wonderfullness that Jim aka K9 Carlos is. Without him, I might as well never have joined CT because none of those good moments would have existed without his grand contributions. What else would I have done on those boring saturday nights? Jim is a man among men, a pirate among pirates, and a Cut Throat among Cut Throats and should be duly noted. You know we really do suck eachother's cocks a lot around here at times, but Jim is a guy who doesn't really ever get as much notoriety as the other guys even though he's done so much for us.

K9 gave us the backbone of CT. Without him, we could not stand up another day to kick our opponents in the fucking teeth. Thank you for your support man.

Wang, you have a way with words that can make someone laugh hysterically and act seriously at the same time.

It's true, though, that BFP seems pretty done, but CT certainly isn't. It has evolved from a "lol PIRATES!!!11" group of nerds to a "lol PIRATES!!!11" family.

I am gay for you all.


Except BOOM.

Time goes on and the server must pass, but it won't break CT spirit at all. Thanks for keeping it up K9. Very Happy

That brought a tear to my eye Wang. Thanks and my pleasure.


I'm working on something right now that will be equally monumental to CT. Thats all I'll say for now.

Monumental news indeed, in a way it seems to signify what some of us had suspected for a while and that CT is moving further away from the game it started with and moving onto a new chapter with HL2 and Mist.

I have my own semi-important news to convey, nothing as vital as previous posts but this being the news section and not being the one to usually start a topic i figured i'd just post it here... Anyway after much thought over several weeks, if not months i have decided to move on from CT and go back to what i have always preferred - being clanless.

I've had many good times in CT. Before i posted this i was looking back through some of the stuff that has happened since i joined as a recruit somewhere back around June05... too much to mention to be honest but some of the highlights in no particular order include beating BB twice, being involved for the final 'all CT match' of the ctf tourney on Wang's team, beating DE and all the entertainment of testing of BFP 1.0 amongst a whole host of other things.

However i feel now is probably the time to move on. I don't play the same games you do, in all honesty i don't expect that i will play the same games you will in the near future either as i don't much care for HL2 nor do i see myself playing BFP2 or most of the other games or mods that are due out in the near future. I don't see the point in hanging around much either when in truth we don't have much in common anymore... from the basic kind of thing like being a European in a predominantly American based clan to the types of stuff that gets posted on here, none of it has any interest to me to be honest.

I know for a fact i've never been the best of recruits and have often been somewhat difficult to get hold of... I have a habit of not much caring for forums, generally because i find the contents and the opinions etc posted on them to be generally mind numbing and uninteresting and this probably accounts for my general lack of posts... nor do i usually much care for having an 'idle chat' which to be honest i've never had to worry about...

Like i said at the beginning so begins the new chapter... make it a good one for me and make the best of your lives, there's a ton of potential here.

Not one of the best recruits? Are you serious? You're far more mature than most recruits. You're a mate I've always looked up to as ye are more sane than most of us here.

Don't worry about not playing the same games as us, as we all play a little something different. We're more of a multi-gaming clan and it's possible we'd play the same games for you.

However, that's not what we're about. We're about ze family. =) Some people post every few months, others have little lives like me and try to post at least 5 times a day. Take logo for example. He pops in every 5-6 months, but he comes back. =) We don't mind if you don't play the same games as us, but we're all about ze family.

And we love our puggle. Won't ye stay? =)

And even if you don't, who knows? You may eventually join SD to be with ze Chips and help run that clan and that's fine with us as you're always a CT at heart. <3

Quite true,
thank you for not only your unwavering monetary support, but also the many hours you put into figuring out what was wrong, setting things up, and just going out of your way to make life better for your CT brethren. It may have never been said, but everyone here has a tremendous amount of respect for what you have done.

Cheers mate
