You may have already come across the information that an active member (and brother to many) of the Albion community, Funstealer, recently passed away from COVID-19. We, the whole team here at SBI, are deeply saddened by this news. Funstealer was with us for a very long time and was always very dedicated to the game and its community.
There were a number of us who had frequent interactions with him and remember him fondly. He was the kind of guy who just rocked up and let his opinion be known without any frills. What you see is what you get. He was a grumpy fun stealer, but also a great fun giver. He loved events - both participating in them and running them for his guildmates, such as Albion Battle Royale, and he even came up with the concept of Albion Football! He was there when we organized the first Crystal League Championship, joking to ease the stress away, yet critically examining the rules, encouraging us on the production and always hopeful that more events would occur.
He was a tough one to please:
“Bob was fun, wish there was more bosses tho”
“u thought u could distract us with this forum contest, now give us what we really want - details on new season and map!”
But you could be sure that he cared a lot about the community and just wanted to make it a better place, with more fun for all involved. He had sooooo many ideas and I wish we could still have the opportunity to hear them.
Funstealer, we will miss you dearly. You’ve clearly been a part of many people’s lives and will always be remembered in the world of Albion. Rest in peace, friend.
