although these threads sadden me as we lost something real, they also make me feel that there is hope and that others will come to take their place, as we remember the gone respectfully.

Rest in Peace Chief Dredd, Sorry for your lose Twilight.

I am Manos Soban and I have my own story to tell.

When I first joined the corporation I had my pilot licence recently renewed and I was full of hopes and dreams. It was a mining operation when everything started and the relationship between me and Chief Dredd would be weaved for ever. Chief Dredd had arranged the operation and I was there early with my mining barge with my friends from the corporation. As the time was closing near more and more alliance members gathered but Chief Dredd was not there. Finally, he arrived thirty minutes late. I conveyed him how the operation was behind schedule to receive the reply ĎLet me worry about thatí. I didnít like his tone and the first crevices appeared in our relationship.

During the operation Chief Dredd made clear the mining policy and payment method. I was against it. I created commotion in all alliance channels. The feelings were mixed. There were people who supported Chief Dredd and the status quo and others who supported my new and radical ideas. ĎThis is how things work hereí, he said and his supporters urged me to leave if I donít see eye to eye with the rules. So, I dropped fleet. I donít know if it was fate or not but few minutes later the system was invaded by Sansha. The seed had been planted. The asteroid belt would be swarmed with Sansha vessels and people started to withdraw from the operation accusing Chief Dredd for his lack of leadership and his Ďpaper-likeí personality. He didnít say anything and mining operations stalled, since I had the full support of my corporation members.

Our CEO, however, was sceptical about all those and he resembled of a man he knows something I donít know. As the time was going by I climbed the corporation ladder and I gained the trust of my corporation members and founder. All the finances and assets in different offices were under my administration. Now I had a say in alliance matters and I could confront Chief Dredd and pass my own ideas on how to run things and that was going smoothly as my reputation was rising. The gap between me and Chief Dredd had widened dangerously. It was a crossroad in history when I with a bunch of people formed the core of our movement with the same ideas. We were radically and unorthodoxly urging members to move in low security status with promising results. Chief Dredd was against it. He was insisting that we were expanding (The location is classified), not moving. That made us furious and forced us to throw accusations towards the alliance leadership for its lack of activity and willingness to take the next step into the next generation. Threats were exchanged between players in alliance channels. We were accusing these people for stagnation and they returned us for taking things too fast.

An urgent meeting was announced and almost everyone was there. Pilots of all races and professions waiting with awe for the future and what will happen between the two streams of thought. I spoke first as the third in command followed by my buddy, who was the second in command. We were the backbone of the movement and we summarized everything and all aspects. We expressed our ambition, the direction we want the alliance to take and other classified matters. Our CEO didnít say anything but his silence had more meaning than our speech. Eventually, he stood by all of us giving us the support we needed. Then it was time for Chooch and Chief Dredd to answer our concerns and announce things never heard before such as the ĎCapital Programí, which was the whole idea behind the mining policy and the stationing of capitals in strategic systems. It was the first time I had spoken with Chief Dredd after a long time and I created the image of and old man who used to be a lone Harley driver from Texas with the similar accent.

To be continued...

I realised a few things in that meeting I was wrong all the time in some aspects. I compromised and for a first time I started to agree with Chief Dredd in a lot of things. But my buddy didnít like my disposition for yielding so easily and left the alliance. Unlike him, I had given everything for this alliance and its people and I couldnít back down on them. So I had to follow a separate way from him. I stayed. I had the chance to be in the same pvp fleet with Chief Dredd. It was his last fight and although he lost his ship he enjoyed it. He told me that he never expected things to work out for me and him and I realised the things he abandoned to make that happen. I lost a buddy and a lot others, but I gained someone else no matter the huge gap of generations. He could still be my grandfather.

Today, I am the second in command in corporation and a prominent member in the alliance board. What I bear with me are the teachings of Chief Dredd. The most important message Iíve learnt is putting aside your ego. You will lose a lot of friends but the few you will gain will be solid.

Thatís my story

In memory to Chieff Dredd,

who I didnít had the chance to meet him in person

I want to thank everyone for all of their kind words.
I know his wife Upeer has seen this post and she expressed gratitude for the posts here from everyone.

At our last Alliance General Meeting this past weekend the Alliance has voted to make a new holder corp for the Alliance called Chief Dredd's Moonshine Still in his memory. This way he will always be part of our alliance.

Again on behalf of DUSK I want to personally thank everyone for their words of kindness and sympathy to our loss

Always impresses me how the backstabbing, insult-spewing, generally coldhearted EVE community simply... sits down and sends their collective honest best wishes.

RIP Dredd

On the behalf of Varion Galactic and TragedyDOT, I would like to extend our sincerest condolences. Regardless of how our normal ingame interactions with the various playerbase of the EvE Community, at the end of the day, we are human. We have families and friends in the Real World, and it is unfortunate when we lose any of them.

Our prayers are with his family and friends, ingame and out, and Dredd, you will be missed, brother.

Pleasantly surprised to see the level of maturity and respect being shown here. I didn't know the guy but I know loss and I'm sorry to hear it.

Can't help but think of the screen cap I once saw of a WoW player announcing the RL passing of his brother and thanking his friends for being so cool to him over the years he played ...and the very next post asked, "Did he drop any good loot?"

RIP Chief, from L.F.E. and BrickSquad.
