Surftank (in memoriam)

Post by quantum dot » Thu Jul 21, 2011 11:25 pm

Dear tankers,

a well-known tanker, Surftank, that most of you surely were lucky enough to play with and talk to has recently passed away after fighting for months against cancer. He was not around very much lately for obvious reasons but we enjoyed him for years in Ducati, GU, Pillbox, and public servers all around bzworld. He was an energetic and nice tank, always fun to play with or against, and we are deeply sorry to hear that he finally has left us after his final struggle. This remind us all that behind the little tanks we fight there are real people with real lives. He was my team mate in Barbarians team for ducati league and so I used to see him playing a lot.

Let this message be a little tribute to his memory.

PS: We are planning to organize some sort of tourney/cup with his name to honour him a last time. All invited to participate.

Me and him were good friends. Even though I only knew him for a few months, I really got to know him. He said I could always make him smile. I'm just glad I was able to leave that impression on him. I loved you, Surf. R.I.P.

Our BZWorld has lost a star. A colourful character, a worthy opponent and a good teammate. I will miss him.

It's the real deal. Be careful not to upset the family any more than they are already. I would not send the letter.

Hey all,

after bit of discussion we have the following two ideas. The first is to create a choreographed video of tanks jumping trying to imitate a wave form, a wave for surftank to surf on, which will then be posted on youtube.
The second idea is to have a small tournament, or a tribute match in the honor of Surftank. Details still to be announced. The two dates can be combined, to start off the evening with the tank wave dance, and to finish it off with a good fight.

To find a date, we have created a doodle calendar pool to be found here:

http://www.doodle.com/7u4xwv55arxcnqh2

Times are in GMT.

Good would be a saturday, for example saturday the 6th of august. If you have suggestions, please dont hesitate to write and i can add it to the poll.

Best,
Foo
