I take my hat and coat and bid you all a pleasent goodbye.
« on: August 26, 2009, 05:38:48 am »
Just wanted to type this up so it gets official. Also i am a bit bored at work and needed something extra to do when drinking my coffee.

After the NAGT league is up and settled, I will leave rFactor management for a while. Maybe for good, but you never know. I have had a good run now and have quite a few leagues behind me.
It has been a good time running these things for you guys, it really has. The pleasure of making people happy with good leagues has been great. (see how full of crap I am :) )
But now as ArmA 2 is rising more and more, and flying things has appeard over the skies, I simply need the time to plan, organize and execute those things aswell.
Doing rFactor, ArmA2, and flying nights for people has simply taken to much time and rFactor has been pri 1 of course, leaving other stuff a bit dull at the moment. Seing as I have at least as much joy from shooting things as I have driving, I feel that the other stuff deserves a bit more attention, and that others might give a new breeze to rFactor.

Anyways... Your new holyness in rFactor will be Gizmoto. He has prob more experiense in running league than everyone in SJ together, so it is no petty upriser you have on your hand now :tut:

Have fun boys. Lets make this final league a good one too ey?

I fully understand where you are coming from Cato. Having run leagues here at SJ for 3 years (Started the first NA league here in fall 2006) I know it takes a lot of time and effort. congrats on your run as League admin and look forward with your future contributions to SJ in the FPS and flying arena.

I don't play rFactor, but cato, one would have to have one's head buried pretty deep in the mud not to know the work and effort you put in here.

 So concentrate where you need to and thanks for all your hard work.

Very well done job Cato, the rFactor league has had a reputation of being a bit fiery (especially the touring cars).
But you took the bull by the horns and got on with it. great job and i look forwards to some more quality ARMA nights  :twit:
The king is dead! Long live the king!

Cato Little-Nuts rises from the great oak chair and solemnly removes the horned helmet of Harfactor, "This belongs to you now Gizwold, treat them badly and they will wail and gnash their teeth, however... treat them well, and they shalt still be filled with bitch and moan"

Cracking job you've done mate  :hats off:

No worries m8, i think its enough challenge to have average of 3 drivers so i wouldnt see too much trouble over it.. shame really.. its one of the best feeling if not the best for rF.
(with realfeel)

My proudest moment of simracing was when the F155 mod maker used my youtube video to show how nice control and feeling (with ffb) its possible to get in rF if the mod maker makes things right.
