Effective immediately, TCO no longer exists. The guild has disband. All tags (there is only one) are retired.
*The Chosen Ones, (their purpose being fulfilled) vanish back into the shadows.

Just to name a few:
Lack of active members
Questionable and decreasing time input
Lack of practice attendance
Inability to participate in Turf Wars II

Do I know THAT one well.

I would have suggested you did what ]>CoD<[ did, go inactive till the member support etc is back again then come back out of the shadows.
You may find with the release of NightBlade (in the year 3035) there may be TCO members back again and you may band together again , just a thought.
One more thing...... Can ]>CoD<[ have the few remaining active members?

Aren't Chal and Cliff the only two actives left? The way you phrased it, it sounds like you're asking Chal to sell you his ex-players.

I'm very sorry to hear this, but I know you did what you could, Chal. Thanks for being a great guild...I'll never forget our match against CTG and the thrill of playing alongside you guys. GG's, and good work Chalrif for taking the guild as far as it could go.

Stuff happens. But I think ThieveryUT as a whole is fading. Not because it isn't fun but due to lack of any news for improvments for what? over a year now? pretty sad state of affairs imho.

I think the ONLY thing that could have saved TCO might have been the 1.5 patch that we havn't heard a damn thing about in over a year. When that happens people just shrug the game off as dead. Which you can't provide much evidense agianst other than "they say the 1.5 patch before Night-Blade". Not enough for most people

As you might be able to tell. I'm a little pissed/sad at the way things have/are happening with ThieveryUT

Can't say I sympathize at all. Dalai and his team have worked hard on Thievery for a long time for no monetary reward at all, and this is the best you can do for thanks?

TCO has only itself to blame for collapse. I still see plenty of active players AND guilds; I've seen more new players than ever before in the latter stages of the 1.4 patch and I have to say I'm ready to play 1.5 whenever the devs see fit to release it, and I'll thank them for it.

1.4 HAS changed over the time of its release simply because players have evolved the game strategy-wise - and found new tricks, tactics and skills. If you had no wish to be a part of that, that's your business.

Hmm.. I've got quite a history with TCO...

I could see it as one less challenger in the midling sized pond that is Thievery.

I could see it as I've outlived and outlasted the guild that my friends started, told me about it, then left me out of.

Or I could thank TCO for what they've done for me.
At first TCO was my arch enemy. I lost my name as Radamanthus, was forced to find a new one. I THank TCO for my new and better name.
A name wasn't good enough if i was going to stand against an entire guld. I needed skills. TCO was my motivation. I thank TCO for pushing me to better myself.
He-we-do-not-name was found the first cheater in thievery. What good is besting someone if you do it by cheating? I thank TCO for keeping me far away from such atrocities.
Troubles came in my life, and Thievery lost it's interest. When things looked grim for this taffer, the guildmembers of TCO would see me online, and fuel my interest. TCO kept me going.
Chalrif, upon becoming guldmaster, began to lessen the friction between me and the guilds. I joined EDG. I later quit EDG when i beat my entire guild 1 vs all, and EDG became CoD. I thank TCO for giving me a good laugh.
Cliff often complained of lack of new maps (back in 1.2). Cliff asked me if i could learn to make some maps to boost interest in the game. I thank TCO for starting me on mapping.
When i started mapping, I found my love for architecture. I simply loved to design. Now, colleges are sending me application forms by the dozens. They've seen some of my "idle time" work. I thank TCO forr guaranteeing a scholarship to a college of my choosing.

Now TCO is disbanding. As they step off their citadel and join the unguilded players of thievery in hte valeys, I welcome them. I welcome former TCO to the cool green grass, the blue lakes, and the cool deep shadows cast the the other guild's mountaintops.

Welcome, TCO, to Thievery.

Oh Iam not saying it wasn't are own fault. Just 1.5 probably would have gotten the members more active thats all I was implying, and Iam sorry if I came off the wrong why,but so is life with text based communication.

The rest of what you said I only semi agree with. Iam not going to get into why as that is not what this thread is about. But needless to say I have a different opinion on it. And don't think for a second I wouldn't be happy with see the 1.5 patch

too bad to hear about that happening to TCO. anywho, i finally got my cd recorded, and it sounds killer. if anyone is interested, the 1st person that e-mails me can have one if they want, or if i have an abundance of e-mails (which is highly unlikely) then i'll have to pick randomly. anywho, after i buy this sweet guitar i just put on lay away, then i'll go wireless, and be back to dominate. later on!
