I don’t know if anyone saw this in discord but Shtrak died of cancer about a week ago. His name popped up a lot in the community, so I thought I’d let everyone know in case you missed the news.
I was not going to create a thread myself, because I was not sure about it.
But now when the thread exists anyway, I wanted to leave a couple of words.
@Shtrak was a Pillar of the Community, always welcoming and happy to answer questions, even if that question already got answerd a million times before.
He often spoke about how great the LE Community was and he was definitely one reason, why it is such an amazing community.
We had a lot of conversation about all kinds of things, including music, real life, other video games and obviously LE itself.
He was also very supportive on my streams, always stopped by a chatted a bit.
He will be always remembered in my book…forever.
I wish his famliy strength in this dire times
I didn’t know shtrak well but I did see him around a lot being helpful giving his thoughts. There we often times even got me to think about perspectives that I miss. As far as I’m concerned lost a valuable member. Send my regardless and heartfelt wishes to his family and friends.
His sister was on the discord and let everyone know. Very thoughtful thing for her to do and it showed how much the game and community meant to him.
Such a heartbreak. Stand up guy. I read a number of his posts both past and present when I came back to the game last month.
Good soul. Rest in Peace.
I don’t know anything about him, but from my little interactions in the forum last year, I’d say he’s a great guy. He’s quite helpful to the newbies.
This makes me sad. Thanks for letting us know.
I only read some of his posts, didn’t know him but it is sad news when any contributing member of a community such as ours passes on. At least we can hope that there’s no evil Win10/11 in Heaven and he can carry on to use Win7 or Linux in peace without hardware conflicts.
Thanks Revelasti, as I don’t use discord I didn’t know…
I had a lot of interactions with Shtrak on these forums and in private chats.
We had a very similar approach to the game (and we are both French, that helped).
A great guy, always helpful, considerate, modest.
This is a big loss for the community.
To borrow the name of his own forum series: a real hero.
I will miss you, Shtrak.
One day there will be a cure for The Big C.
RIP Shtrak, i didnt know you or ever conversed with you, but still, play on where ever you maybe.
Shtrak was one of the nice posters, he’ll be missed.
And it will take too many people before then.
Enjoyed his posts even if we didn’t interact much. Such a damned shame.
I’m glad to have known him and sad to see him go.
Would it be a thing to honour his contribution to the early community naming an NPC after him?
All the best to his family in this hard times.
I saw some plans for something similar and a little different.
I was very upset for days after I found this out. I’d always enjoy seeing him helping players, and I looked up to him as a fellow community bee friend. He was a good role model, and he really did care deeply for this game, rest in peace brother.
Genuinely one of the nicest players on the forums, discord, and game. He was genuinely happiest when he was helping new players learn how to play LE and light their passion for this game.
My condolences to his family and friends and I truly hope we find a way to honor his memory and impact on this community in the game or elsewhere within LE
I will miss Shtrak, I have been away for a couple of months due to traveling for work. Yet he took out time along with Vaporfire to help keep me in the loop on the status of the game. He and I had very good and constructive discussions about a game he really enjoyed.
