    Today it's one year since our guild leader Zombina passed away. It's been a year of ups and downs and sometimes it felt like dotu would not survive, but we did.

    I'm proud of the fact that we stand as strong today as we did back then. Raid progress is being made, the atmosphere is friendly and we have a healthy bunch of new members to make up for the old heroes that quit. Some of the old ones even came back after seeing the error of their ways :)

    I want to thank the lot of you for making this year what it was and especially Btre for stepping up as our guild banker, Hruktar for leading our raids and Second Wind for a raid cooperation that took us into TK and SSC

    When I accepted the guild leadership of dotu I knew that I could never fill Zombinas shoes but you lot made it easier to walk in Zombinas foot steps and for that I'm forever grateful

    MC raid in remembrance of Zomb in event calendar. Hope to see you there

    Fot the Horde- Thrall be praised

    Well said Higgo  :)

    We all miss Z, still weird not seeing that space in the friends list not highlighted anymore.

    A quick thx to all the guild members for making this game more than just a game, we got a great community here. And a special thanks to Higgo, you took the helm at a difficult time, but your doing a great job  ;)

    Lets have a fun time on friday revisting MC

    i'll assuredly be there, with particular meaning for me as my father recently developed the same kind of problem as Z did :(

    I certainly look forward to make a "straight line" dotu style, and being da bomb like teh old times! :-)

    A blood soaked battlefield,
    Where the dead all decay,
    Where life has all ended,
    Where there is no more fray.

    A deal has been made,
    After all the lives lost,
    The hero’s, the villains,
    And the children are the cost.

    The cost for the win,
    Where there was nothing to gain,
    Where lives are destroyed,
    And mothers anguish in pain.

    A battle to no end,
    But a slaughter in all,
    “Send our best heroes to war,
    And our nation won’t fall.”

    But with all those dead,
    And all the more dying,
    What good did the war?
    This war that was so trying.

    Those sent to a war,
    With nothing to gain,
    Where they shall die,
    We shall grieve in pain.

    Rest in peace Zombina.  And big up for Higgo for keeping these hero's together in tough times.

    I would like to pay my respect here to Zombina. He made quite an impression on me. It still feels weird that he is no longer among us... I can still find myself missing reading his post on the forum.

    My deepest thanks to Higgo and the others officers for all the time you guys put in into the guild. You are the best!

    Since I am going to miss the MC run (going to iceland on a short vaccation) I want to wish you all a great time.

    Long live DotU

    Rest in peace Zombina

    Good post, Higgo. Been indeed a year of ups and downs, and you did a good job of keeping us together.
    Think Zomb is happy with us up there... oh maybe a bit more naked murloc killing wouldn't hurt ;)

    My main may no longer be apart of dotu but my heart is always with you and my memories of Z. I won't be able to join you for the MC run but I hope all goes well. I still have the original letter higgo sent out ingame to say Z had passed away, I saw him as a dear friend as I do all of you, even though our paths have never met in real life.
    Long live DotU and the memory of Z
