    Doug Rush, Scurby 1961-2018

    RIP Scurby 1961-2018


    April 2018
    SWGEmu Staff






    It is with a heavy heart that we must share the sad news of the passing of one of our own,

    Our Quality Assurance Leader, our mentor, our friend Doug Rush is no longer with us.



    He joined and followed SWGEmu long before his account join date says, started as community tester 2012 and quickly went to become a full member of our QA in 2013. Same year after Xavia's unfortunate accident and Wuzze's retirement he took the mantle of QA leader and has held that position ever since. Doug's passing has come as surprise to everyone that knew him, and will leave a terrible void both in the lives of people that knew him and in the project itself.

    Even though Scurby is gone, his spirit is and always will live on in the hearts and souls of all the people who have had the pleasure of working or playing beside him.

    Our event team will prepare an appropriate vigil on Basilisk, and later place a permanent statue in one of the larger cities to commemorate a great man and all that he has done for SWGEmu.

    Can I be the first to post that this is kind of done in "poor taste"

    usually when you do this kind of thing you make it sound like a joke?

    I hope it is. And if it is, it's really a lame *** April Fools joke.. usually when you say so and so died, you make it sound jokey. This doesn't sound like a joke. Someone needs to clarify this.

    It is with an extremely heavy heart that I must confirm this tragedy.

    Scurby has been a cornerstone in the success of this project for many years and is irreplaceable. He will be missed.

    Moving forward I will endeavor to be the best QA lead I can be. It will be tough to slip myself into those hawtpants. They're a bit too small.

    Doug was a great man, and a great friend.

    Scurby: the Force will be with you. Always.

    This was an april fools joke. The line I originally posted about there being a bacon stockpile was sardonic in nature and meant to tip the hand. Unfortunately some people let it go on longer than it should have.

    Everything I ever did was about pushing the project forward.

    Kind of a morbid April fools joke here. Not really something to say "haha we got you" about.
