It is with great sadness that I share that T-roy passed away after a long, courageous battle with cancer. He was a great guy, optimistic to the very end.

I'm very sorry to hear this. T-roy was the nicest person I ever had the pleasure to know among all bzflag players. My condolences to his family.

I sure hope nobody else I know is leaving this world in 2016. There have been far too many 'departures'
I had the pleasure of playing with T-roy for many years. Even though we never met, you could tell what a great person he was. The pass-master will be missed.

That's terrible to hear. I never knew him either, but playing with and against him was a great experience. My prayers go out to his family.

Feel free to pass this on to other registered players, help get the word out and have T-roy looking down on us having fun in his name!
As many of you know, T-roy lost his battle with cancer this past November. He was great guy who loved this game. Often in chats with him while he was in the hospital, he never failed to ask about bzflag and about many of you players, even to the very end. Many of you knew him from Urban Jungle, Apocalypse, Missile Wars, the ducati/gu leagues and more recently when he was well enough to be on bz - from LeaguesUnited and Pie servers.
Join the event honoring his memory!

Troy Memorial event server is set up at bzflag.allejo.io:5173
It has 3 maps loaded: Missile Wars 2.3, ducati and hix.
Test it out for discrepancies and pm me here on forums or leave a pm on IRC.
Already making changes to MW2 for bad flags to auto drop after 4 sec. and the tk/sk which is missing. So please don't send messages about those 2.
T-roy was well liked by all. Served as admin in Ducati League, GU admin in GU league and then as cop in GU as life brought changes. He played on many, many maps: Apocalypse, Urban Jungle, LU league servers, Pie servers and from what I hear was a force to be reckoned with on Missile Wars 2.3 ( I'm quoting War Pig re: MW2 map).
Hope to see you all there as we take this opportunity as a community to honor the memory of T-roy.

To the BZFlag community:
Many thanks to all the players who participated in the T-roy Memorial Event
to pay honor to the memory of a player well-liked and active(until his illness made it difficult) in the bz community.
Your attendance demonstrated the high degree of respect and fondness that T-roy had in the community and you conveyed to all
that there is indeed a wonderful BZFlag community and that we can come together in unity to celebrate a player's BZflag life!
I do thank each of you for the investment of your time. It was indeed a blast and everyone said so! I've no doubt that T-roy was smiling at the show of love/respect shown by all of you there!
Many thanks to allejo
for the generous use of his servers and his time in setting it up! And for several players who helped with this idea and in testing the server: NTH, Indy, gorgomol, chickenfarmer, Bertman, Shuist, Bullet Catcher and more.
With 9-13 players in observer:

Awesome man, awesome turnout!
Super bummed I could not make it, but happy to see it was full of great people.
Keep shooting out there.

I'm sorry I couldn't make it, but it's nice to see that so many people wanted to show their respect to T-roy by playing there. My thoughts were with him too.
He has so many friends on so many servers that they couldn't even fit on the field
Would be nice, if we could see such many active players not only by such sad occasions
