To all Champsite members,

As you might have noticed, Champsite has been down several times due to ddos-attacks. Because of that, Kane and me have come to the conclusion that there's basically only one solution for this problem; the closure of Champsite. I'm really sick of the instant downtime and because I don't want to give our members false hope nor do I want to start all over again with our projects, I think it's better to close Champsite forever. By doing this the script kiddies (Revolt / Lithium) will get what they want and the other site on this server (Gather-Network), which is having over 40,000 users, will be left alone.

To be quite honoust we could have found ourselves a new server and this would have taken another few weeks but I really can't find the motivation anymore. The past months TS wasn't about a game anymore. Inactive TS players who didn't really care about TS, found it necessary to spread hate messages pointed at me personally, towards Champsite and towards XWIS. It became pretty clear to me that the 'war' between Champsite and the XWIS TS players on one side and Cncgamer and Revolt on the other side, was more entertaining to them rather than playing TS was.

Perhaps one day, haters such as destroy3r, rob, mrrek, noorodin, revolt, silent, foreva1st, itsme, defi, sxar, goldnglow, exile4eva, bd123, xistentz, dan101, mjgwasp, t3z, baz, ra1nstorm, badownzu, tezzdoctr, gstery2k, unionism, logical, f1ref0x and insyder19 will realise that they've ruined the fun we had with supporting C&C's TS on Champsite. My message to them: Go find yourself a new victim soon, because you might get bored one day, not knowing what to talk about as hardly anyone of you doesn't even play TS anymore.

These people were "ok" with the situation that Champsite was getting flooded, after all these ppl wanted to get some sort of "revenge" on me. Whether they either had been banned from Champsite / XWIS, weren't given a certain staffposition, blocked from my msn or were caught for cheating, they all shared one objective: To talk as much bs and to spread as many lies about me, Champsite & XWIS as possible and to support a message board, being run by inactive TS players (cncgamer), instead.

I would like to thank the following people who have helped me a lot and who made Champsite the most known & successful TS website: Kanexxz, Dan3157, Atombombu, Roykeane1, Henky, Energy616, Dachziege, Patrick, Infadelty, Avancado, Paulhaber, Tezzism, Capnm0rgn, Toxatib, Badluck2u, Claruss78, Punker, Capnm0rgn, Cptpelega, Realjzm and Dizztime.

I would also like to thank our loyal members who have always supported us and last but not least I would like to thank Olaf and Doncarlo (XWIS) for their efforts for keeping C&C alive and for the support they've given me.

I wish all of you the best and I hope to keep in touch with you every now and then.

To end my statement with one final conclusion:
The haters win, TS loses.

I'm done.
