Sub Zero, Ice Warriors Capital – In a very sudden turn of events, Ice Warriors leader Andrew24 announces his retirement from the army.
Andrew and his “Drew Crew” were the first leaders to be officially hired into IW since their creation in 2007. Under his helm, IW saw great heights, at times maxing 60+ troops! He waged the biggest war of 2015 so far against the Doritos, and even got nominated for Legend for the first time. You can read and look at his full retirement post on IW site, but here is what he stated as for his reason for leaving the army and he also reiterated that people shouldn’t leave the army due to his retirement.
Do NOT quit IW because of me leaving. If you are loyal to the me you should also be loyal to one of my bestfriends, Ghost. He and the rest of the owners need your help…leaving because of me retiring is silly (don’t do it)
According to Andrew, his retirement may be because of a dispute with IW’s creator, Iceyfeet1234. So, what was the feud that ended one of the most successful leaderships IW has seen? One of his fellow leaders, Gtudsd, has also recently retired. Andrew came into IW along with Spy, Jester, and Final Chaser. So far Spy has also retired from the IW Leadership. As it may seem, the “Drew Crew” is leaving IW, so where are they going to next? Now, back to the feud between Icey and Andrew, here is Icey’s statement that he published on IW site shortly after Andrew’s retirement post came out.
Just to put this shortly, the fighting in this army has to stop. Just because we’re out of a war doesn’t mean people within the army should start clawing at each other. In the past week we have lost 2 leaders. Not because of fighting, but because of real life situations.
According to Icey there was lots of fighting going on IW chat, and due to him being on personal leave, he doesn’t have the time to settle it and Andrew chose to retire through this. Andrew stated that he didn’t plan to leave IW originally until he officially retired from armies permanently, but since “recent events” have caused him to leave IW, where will he go now and what will he do? Of course, what will this do to IW is the more pressing question at the moment, so different people asked the troops what was going to happen now*.
* Apologies for the wrong use of “effect” in first two pictures.
As seen, there are varying responses over his retirement. What can’t be argued though is that Andrew and the “Drew Crew” managed to pull IW out of a slump and turn them back into the super power they originally were, and now that pretty much all of them are gone, what’s next?
We've tried to get a statement from Andrew, who is currently a moderator on IW chat, but he declined to say anything.
Now, we have yet to see how all of this gets played out. Change is certain to happen, but what do you all think? Did Andrew make a rash decision by retiring? Could the fights going on at IW been resolved in a peaceful way? Will IW continue to rise, will they stay about the same, or will they fall now?
