Im Memoriam - Honor our fallen virtual tankers here

70 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I think the most of the old members here know manteuffel.

I know some of you met him personally like Daskal, Furia or Ssnake.

He was one of us and now he is dead. He died on the 25th of january 2016 after a serious illness.

We want to make something like a commemorative event and want to play some of his missions.

I don`t know how many missions we will play, maybe it will be an open end event.

I'm shocked by that terrible news. Please pass my condolences onto his family.

I got to know him a little bit while working with him on one of his map projects.

He will be missed.

Duke,

As per the PM, I'm stunned and saddened. :shocked: :sad2:

Of course I'll be there and play as many missions as we can put together in honour of one of our Kameraden.

But rest in peace Manteuffel, we will remember you.

My sincere condolences to his family & friends.

He made some of the very best maps in SB.

He will not be forgotten.

I never got to know him, but I appreciated the effort and attention to detail he put into his maps. A creator in our community with a lot of fans.

RIP manteuffel :@!2:

I'll be there.

I heard from mantuffel recently, he knew the end was coming and continued to put in work on terrain maps anyway. That is dedication! Hopefully his work here and in the "real world" will live on for a long time.

Rest in peace.

I heard of the sad news on FB ("SB Appreciation"). I can't join MP but I'm contemplating continuing work on his Hannover-Weserbergland map.

R.I.P. and my condolences.

Thats Ok, I just need to write a letter to your future unit: Under no circumstances train him as an FO. Never! (esp. around some trees)

Very sad. I look forward to participating in the Memoriam missions - which will be a really nice way or paying tribute to him.

Sad news. His maps are among the best. Much, if not most, of the community's enjoyment can be directly attributed to his efforts, and that is not an overstatement. As just one example, Red Tide would not have been possible without his effort.

He was definitely a contributor to the community. He will be missed.

Maybe we as a community should have a wall of honor thread in the forums to honer our fallen SB comrades. :luxhello:

If I were to die, would anyone here or in other forums I frequent even know? To not care isn't the question. But damn, it sucks when people die and you didn't get to know them other than as a forum buddy.

My graphics card collapsed late last week and I got the new one installed yesterday. I've just found this thread and send my belated condolences to Manteuffel's family. Requiescat in pace.

I very much regret that I will not be able to join you all on the 20th. I am contracted to conduct computer simulation training for our military, and I will be away over that weekend as part of the team conducting simulation training for a reserve brigade about seven hours from home. Would that it were not the case, but I'm afraid that it is. The best I can do is to raise a glass in memory of Manteuffel and another to you all who will be marking his passing in a most appropriate way. "Well Done" to all Steel Beasts members! :thumbup: :@!:
