I just noticed this post in the Steam Allegiance community forum.
No details provided but it seems we have lost another member of our community.
RIP Wasp you shall be missed and the work you did to help improve Allegiance will always be appreciated.
God speed.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/700480/discu...43958651245744/

Dome and I will plan a memorial game in his honor, time and date will be posted as soon as we can finalize details.

Wasp's Memorial Game is scheduled for June 02-2019 3 pm EST (Squad Game Time)
This game will be played on the MS 1.25 core with a custom maps made by Student in honor of Wasp's memory.

I would ask that everyone conduct themselves with a modicum of respect in Wasp's honor
It would be appreciated if as many of you as possible can record and/or stream the game and post on YouTube with links here and/or on Discord.

Regards
Paps

Hi all,

This is very sad news indeed. I got an email from Dome about it yesterday. Wasp was a great help to me in bringing Allegiance to Steam. He invested a lot of hours into play testing, and verifying changes that I was making to the code base to ensure that it didn't impact play-ability. He spent weeks worked through years of change sets to hunt down bugs in the game (not just the joystick one). Even though he didn't have any formal training or much experience with C++, he was able to navigate some of the trickiest parts of the code to track down issues. He caught a lot of issues that went live in the first Steam release that we were able to quickly clean up due to his accurate reporting. He also spent a lot of time helping new players in the game. Wasp was the driving force behind creating the R4 Old School release of Allegiance and has been keeping that build up with continuous experiments. I don't have any details of his passing, but I will miss his enthusiasm for this game and his relentless quest for perfection.

Thanks Wasp, for everything.

-BT

Where did you get that information?
Can you provide a link please?
I had his personal email address and searched the net looking for information but couldn't find anything.

His girlfriend replied on the steam forum.

He was unquestionably dedicated to this game.
He was brazen, confrontational even, but damm it he loved this game.
His drive was something to admire.
RIP I hope you may find peace if there is an afterlife.

Mini ac gunner mount was removed because somewhere along the lines we had a core dev that said, "I really hate Terran and want him to be miserable." And all core devs ever since have agreed.

Maybe he had "old goat";) medical problems and didn't wan't to deal with them.

Although we all have our differences..it's very sad to lose one of the community.

You have to be smart just knowing this is one of the best online games ever released.

If there is an afterlife(I believe there is) I hope he is at peace in it.

A long time ago in my first match of Allegiance, you were the one teaching me the basics. Thank you and rest in peace, Wasp.

Very sad to hear. I wish the best for his family and friends, and I know he is missed in this community as well. He helped in so many ways.

This is shocking. He friended me on Steam years ago and we played a couple of L4D games and chatted a little.

Somebody once told me Wasp was Orion's pseudonym? I'm sure it wasn't, but was he known by another name in the community?

Hi Ducky,

No as far as I know Wasp was his main handle.
The main hider he used for years was Glutius_Maximus.
After the game landed on Steam he was able to use all kinds of different names and he did.
He would log in when testing things as BigBetaTester quite often and he had a few other funny Steam handles.

A big thank you to everyone who showed up for Wasp's Memorial Game.
Just an FYI Amy Wasp's girlfriend watched a few people who were streaming the game, so thank you for that.
For anyone that may have recorded the game, Amy told me she would very much like to watch any recordings done.
If you did record the game(s) and post them on YouTube, can you provide links so Amy can view them.

Thanks
Paps
