It’s a tad overdue, but I feel it’s my personal responsibility due to my involvement to post a formal closure as someone has neglected to do so.
To The Players of EuphRO2:
Perhaps you have never heard of me, or perhaps you have heard of me but never met me. In that case, welcome! I am [GM] Chii, former head-GM of EuphRO2. I was on the EuphRO2 team since the birth of the server and have silently watched over it even after my resignation. Incidentally, a while back, I expressed my concerns about the reliability of the new management after the departure of the last of the SAGA team.
From my interaction with the community, the admin was widely disliked and reportedly controlling, egoistical, and incompetent. When such people are at the top, the failure of the infrastructure is inevitable. It was suspected that he did not care about the community and that he was doing it for glory to look like some sort of hero who “saved” EuphRO2 .Well, this suspicion was confirmed when the server suddenly closed a while back. Apparently, he could not take on the responsibilities of a server owner, or just broke down due to the lack of appreciation (as if there is anything he should be appreciated for) for him. Either way, EuphRo2 closed suddenly with no warning- poof, just like that. Shows how much he cared for the community, eh? Instead of admitting he made a mistake or stepping down, he just closes the whole thing… probably in a tantrum. Very professional. Such people I can imagine are usually plagued by problems in life too, always running away like that.
All the same, EuphRO2 is now closed, but the seed SAGA planted there has grown to yield other servers. Reddozen has a nice server going too called DiviniaRO2 based on his own Janus emulator. I’m gonna be really cliché here and remind you that all good things come to an end, but the experiences you have will live on. I made so many friends from EuphRO2 and met so many great and interesting people. Prior to the server, I had never GMed in my life, but I had a great time interacting with the community- that’s what drives a server. I am truly happy for the memory, and I encourage all others to treasure their own.
