2 Years of TangoWorldWide
« on: January 02, 2016, 11:45:23 pm »
Just over two years ago a really good friend of mine messaged me during a competitive match. We were on the same team, one I built to for-fill my need to be competitive, following a major football injury. @rizky, my A-Captain, in his multitude of strange ideas, asked me if I would consider reopening a gaming community, "like the one you owned when I first met you... just better." I owned rather small, and to admit, pretty shitty CS:S Clan, known as AoD. It barely had 100 members in it's prime, I was consumed by football at that point of time, so I had no focus on it, hell, the servers we sometimes out of date from a recent patch for up to 3-5 days. But rizky despite how shitty AoD was, decided to ask me to consider opening up another clan, his favorite from CS:S was long gone, and our team wouldn't be making invite anytime soon, so I considered it.

As time moved on, I acquired new friends through CS:GO, @Zeph being one, @kenox, and played old friends too such as @Flatburger. Slowly we all started to shoot ideas about this gaming community, because compared to what already existed, we wanted something special, something more.

On 1/2/2014, I registered TangoWorldWide on Steam, a "community" built off of TeamTango, our CEVO team. By late that night, we had 5 people in our group, and here we are 2 years later, over 3500 have joined us. Our active roster holds over 250, probably closer to the high 300's, our staff includes over 40 talented and unique individuals, and those 5 users who started it all? For the most part, they're still here too.

We were excited, we wanted to build something that no one's ever built before. Something successful, a world-wide multi-gaming community, that stepped out of gaming and would become something more. Ideas constantly were thrown back and forth, and still are today, people came and went, which they still do today, everything from the start is the exact same, and that was our goal. Make a foundation of an organization which is of the highest quality. Make this foundation be coordinated by talented and rational individuals, which we did. Two years later, we are bigger than we've EVER been before, but unlike a mountain, there's no peak. There's only up, there's always something more.

Over the past two years, TangoWorldWide has evolved and morphed into this huge, and iconic community. Each game you play, there's a fair share of people who recognize the T.w tag. And this is all because of the foundation which was laid 2 years ago, that we still express and represent today.

If someone asked me two years ago if I thought I'd be running this organization, I'd tell them there's no way. If someone asked me last year, when I wrote "New Year.. but not a new Tango!" if I ever thought we'd be this size, I'd say no way. At one point, we had goals, but we just kept breaking them, so what's the point of setting one? We've found when you set goals, you put a barrier above your head that you think if you reach, that's enough, you don't keep working, and you don't pursue something more. That's not how this organization runs, and it's something unique to it.

Now to pass the semi third-person "experience" I've typed above, I would like to thank a handful of individuals. If you aren't on this list, don't think you aren't important, because as long as you are an active member of this community, I appreciate you. You are apart of something I created, a dream, and you keep that dream alive from being apart of it.

@The1Speck - You were retired tonight from your Ownership position, I'm pretty sure you know this already, but that is not a demotion, because if you were still active you'd still be #2. TangoWorldWide's success is definitely is reflected upon the hard work you put in during our first year as an organization. We would not have gotten to this size without your help, and I thank you.

@Alex - I honestly do not think you know how thankful I am that you came to this community. The amount of convincing it took me was ridiculous. I didn't think you'd budge, but seeing you visit these servers, then slowly make your way onto my forums, I knew you would be apart of something big here, something great. You handle one of the most important parts, the member to member relations. You go out of your way to ensure everything's handled, that's a hard job. You may not be the most technical, but you do work that the majority of the other Co-Owners, would not be able to do. It's overall impressive, and this is my thank you.

@Lt.DoomY & @Mobz - I have to tag you two together. There's no way I couldn't. The ZenRefuge merge, was a major turning point for TangoWorldWide. You may have not had 100s of people flocking over, but I got two very talented, very generous, and very intelligent new members of my community, members of my ownership, and overall friends. Having you two on my Ownership, makes me believe that there is no way any merge will ever be more worth the one we did with Zen. I don't know why you two came over here, you were more than talented enough to run a community of this caliber, but having you here, on this team; it makes this community one of the best.

@AdaM - Last year if someone asked me who you were, I'll admit, I would've said the weird british kid that's obsessed with JB. I don't know how it happened, but somewhere during the last 12 months, you stood out. You would not stop bugging Speck or myself, honestly, it was annoying. You were division staff of bhop.. who the hell cared? Oh wait, you. Your ability to be so persistent, so precise, is exactly what landed you a position in Ownership, and it's something that will keep you there for quite some time. You made one of the #1 servers in Tango. Hell, in all of CS:GO. BHOP for months now has dominated ranks, and at it's source, it's reason, it's you.

@Fotu - I'm going to keep it short, because you've had your thank yous over steam plenty of time. You know how valued you are here, and in your new position as Community Administration, I know you are going to do great. Thank you for returning to Tango this summer, especially in one of our darkest times. Thank you for your hard work you put into your position, and just for the hard work you put into just being yourself. You're right, theres no place on the roster for your title, "Fotus position", because you do your job so unique. My only hope is Community Administration will strike close to what you'd like to have.

@Sk67 & @Oscar - We pulled both of you out of two shitty situations. Not to say the communities we pulled you from were shit, but how you were being utilized by those communities, they should've known to use your abilities and knowledge a lot more. Both of you will do huge things for this community, and it's a pleasure to work with you both. With both of your promotions, I know you will do amazing things to Tango and how it continues to grow.

As said, if I missed you, I apologize. I hit only my top 4, and recent CITs, because if I tagged everyone, I'd easily collide with the forum post-limits.

There's been a lot of people who have came and went. More and more each day I get people readding me "oh man I should've stayed around" or the typical "so hows tango" as if they are waiting for me to give them bad-news. Lucky for me, and this community, there's usually not bad news; we're always pursuing something great, something more. For those who left, most of them will find their way back, some of them them obviously wont, but the people I am most appreciative for, are those who have stuck around since they got that first vibe that this was the place for them.

I look forward to another successful year, and hope all of you reading this will end up reading Year 3's. It'll mean you are still here, it'll mean we are still growing, it'll mean we are pursuing something more.

This made me cry :') Thank you @balon, you are an amazing person. You are one of the original founders who started the ball rolling From your initial decision to throw a few dollars at a server, you and your team have created something remarkable that you must admit that it is quite an achievement. I am honored to be along your side able to help push this community even further! I hope 2016 is twice what 2015 was for us!

;) Sorry @Lt.DoomY, you're a big part too. ;)
