LO, for me, has always centered around the space marine forum. Nearing the end of 3rd edition, LO had a lively and knowledgeable Space Marine Forum, led by Chaos Brynn. LO bloomed with tacticas, veteran gamers, and an easy to use, easy to read interface. Shortly after the departure of Chaos Brynn, I felt things in the space marine section began to slowly decay. It began with the tacticas, they stopped being written. Slowly I began to recognize less and less familiar 'faces,' posters I had admired and respected seemed fewer and fewer. Even those who I often disagreed with, but who where obviously astute Warhammer 40k players eventually disappeared.
Some of the younger players, rose in the ranks of LO, but none from my perspective, filled the shoes of Chaos Brynn. Soon the space marine forum turned away from tactics, army lists, and intelligent fluff discussion. Arriving as it is today, with an overwhelming tide of "what army should I play" and "What should I do with these models?" posts. I'm sure we all can think of a few posts we have seen a bunch of times, which offer no real exchange of knowledge, nor interest to any reader. I can't recall the last time I learned anything about fluff in the space marine section, which is sad, because fluff is one of the best parts of this game. Sure there is a fluff section, but space marine related fluff could have easily been posted in the space marine section, with little fuss from the mods. Especially if it was more than a back story to an army list. I hope that someday LO will return to its former glory, but I don't think that day will include me.
I return to make this post, because at one time LO meant a great deal to me. I am certain I have ruffled a few feathers in my time here. I'm sure more than a few of you will be happy to see me go. My Apologies to those of you who I've upset, or offended. I learned a lot from LO, in my time here. I hope I passed on a lot, but my time here has ended.
I know that I don't know you well, and you don't know me too well either. But I do remember seeing you in the 'Order of the White Sword: Inner Circle' clan, which was the Dark Angels clan on LO. It was really sad to see it disband.
But I do have to say I know what you mean with what happened in the space marine forums.
I also just wanted you to know, that even though I don't really know you well, but for some reason, when I saw you post here, my heart just broke in two.
We will miss you, and maybe instead of waiting for LO to change, we need to make the change our selves.
Peace, and I hope to see you on the forums again.

Sad to see you go Forged. You didnt fancy Bryns shoes yourself then?
Everything you have been told is a lie!
