cross-post from the Discord post on 12/10/2021:

Dear <Crossbones>,

I started raid leading for our guild in early 2008, became the co-GM in 2010 and then received the sole mantle of GM in 2017.

For nearly 14 years, I have quite literally dedicated my life to this game, our guild and specifically my team.

Over that time, you all have become my social circle, my chosen family.
I am so proud of everything we have accomplished together and cultivated what I hope will be lifetime friendships with both old and new guildies alike.

While I have indeed spent day in and day out managing the various aspects of the team and guild, I couldn't have done it with out your support, encouragement, dedication, time and most importantly, your friendships.

This moment has been looming over me for many months and even the thought of writing this post filled me with a very real sense of dread.
I do so now with a heavy heart.

I'm sure it's obvious to many of you that I started to step back from WoW over the course of 2021. Many aspects of my life have been changing and I'm excited for the prospects on the horizon that have fallen out of it as we prepare to welcome in the new year.

Unfortunately, my heart is simply no longer in the game. As a result, I do not feel it would be fair to my team to continue to step back from the tremendous amount of time and effort that has been required to remain in my role.

Therefore, after 14 wonderful years, I have made the extremely difficult decision to resign from my role as raid lead.
December the 19th will be my last raid with Aggro Whores.

The officer team decided it would be best that I maintain GM although it will be in a casual capacity. I will be working with my team as I prepare to step down as raid lead.

While it may be "just a game", playing with Aggro Whores and <Crossbones> has been the greatest source of joy for the majority of my adult life. The moments we have shared are memories which invoke a very visceral response and I will cherish them forever.

Thank you, <Crossbones>. For everything.
