My dearest Comrades
I am leaving you now. I'm glad that we have travelled together for so long. It is such a treasurable experience for me. I have your love, your support, your trust. I fighted alongside you. I'm so glad that we have arrived in such a place, where we can see the victory of our heart. I'm so proud of all of you. You are honorable, passionate, and generous. You are all that a girl like me can ever hope for.

I'm leaving you now. I hope this will only be temporary. I had given Jamski my promise long ago. He left us now. And I will go with him.

If Jamski is allowed to join CPU, then I will apply to join the PEACE. Hope they will accept me. And if the PEACE fall, I will try to come back to you, my dearest comrades.

This is good bye now. But I hope I will be able to come back to your arms again.

I love you all.

Hong

I truly wish you would stay, but I can respect your decision to leave.

It's sad to see you go Comrade HongHu. I hope your decision to leave was not because of the PM "incident".

Good luck.

I actually rather liked having you on this team for my brief stay here. I never realized you were so good at SMAC/SMAX until I joined this team and saw your hard work when you were the turnplayer, not to mention other stuff.

So I'm rather saddened to see you leave so soon after my own arrival and I'm confused about the reasoning, but it's your decision, not ours. Here's hoping you have a pleasant experience on PEACE (if you can get in).

As Frankychan has said, good luck.

Alas, poor HongHu! I knew her well...

Farewell, dearest comrade, and best of luck, where ever your travels may take you.

Personal Correspondence from HongHu
Quote:
Dear Rubin,

Sorry I had to do that. I had made that promise to Jamski from a long time ago. Also I felt that there have been quite some negative feelings from the CPU to the Hive. I have said that I will be responsible for what happened. And by my leaving I'm hoping I will take some of those negative feelings away. I believe the PEACE may not survive if the CPU is mad. If that happens my plan is I will come back to Hive with all the captains. However if CPU does let PEACE live, I will still come back because I'm not in PEACE anyway. I'll just have to hold for a little while so that the ACDG don't get broken because of our war against CPU. In other words, the prime purpose of my leaving is to shift attention from CPU's grudge against Hive to the leaving of Jamski and me. And I hope by this I will be able to help CPU from quitting the game prematurelly solely because of emotional frustration.

Yes I would be very interested in your comments. I feel sorry that I have to leave just after I dragged you into this game. I promise you that it will not be too long before I return to my beloved team.

Please feel free to share this or part of this with the team if you like.

Hong

Rubin,

Thanks for your comments. You are very right in many points, especially regarding defection. I'm glad that Tass had made the right decision not to allow defection. So I would be able to come back later. Sorry I didn't let the team decide this matter. I really couldn't let myself wait, for I wouldn't be able to make that one click if I wait. And I left when nobody else was on. I know if I read any post saying I shouldn't leave I will not be able to do it. Please be sure that I have never wanted to defect from the Hive. Buster's prediction was exactly the key point that made me making this decision. I will never "jump ship" if the Hive is a sinking ship. I felt ok to do it for if the game ends now we will be on the winning side. And I felt that this may not be a good point to end the game with so much bitter feelings around. So I was hoping that by doing that I might actually be able to diffuse it a little, and perhaps, I could influence the game to go on. I know if I stayed at Hive I would have less influence in that, since everything I say would be accented with my association with the Hive. I haven't had time to check the forum yet but it seemed to me that the leaving of Jamski and I did make some CPUers less mad. And my indication of trying to join the PEACE seems to have a positive effect at taping off bitter feelings from the PEACE too.

When everybody accept the war as a matter of fact, hopefully everything will return to normal and I will be able to rejoin the team. Please share my plan with the team if you could and explain to them for me.

Ok, I just went in and checked the forum for a minute. Looks like the PUT has played. So it looks like the game is going to go on. I will return in a very short time. Please let the team know that. And I apologize for any bitter feelings I caused inside the team. This is what I'm like often, that I would sometimes let my closer friends to shoulder the pains in order to help others feeling better. In fact if you could post both of my email to you I would really appreciate. I could explain when I'm back but I thought maybe everybody would appreciate knowing about this a little sooner. Thanks Rubin!

Hong

Thank you Comrade Rubin,

You have allayed my fears.

Thanks everybody for your understanding. The past few days were as dark as it can be for me.

Welcome back! It was a pleasant surprise to see you back HongHu. Alas I cannot give you a proper greeting right now since Iím just quickly checking Poly, but I am happy that you have returned.

Also I am sorry for my absence in the past few days, but they have been rather hectic and busy. I am back to my normal routine starting tomorrow (well later tonight, but Iíll need my sleep then).

I didn't know what the PUT would decide at the time, and I truly didn't want the game end at that time with so much bitterness around. I did not really know what and how much I can do, but I sincerely tried. Maniac may not believe me, but at least I can face myself knowing I tried to do whatever I could for those I still consider my friends.
