    Hello everyone

    I've been dreading this announcement for a while but it's time.
    Some of you might know that I recently graduated from university and about a month ago I also moved into a new apartment. I'm currently applying for jobs to work full time which means I will have very little time for Castia.

    Castia has grown into a very big network that's high maintenance and with my little amount of time available, I would only be able to fix a very small part of the total amount bugs and no new features. Not only is that my least favourite activity but it would also not be fair to you as players.
    I often have to dedicate my evenings, nights and weekends to the server which is not ideal and not something I can continue with my adult life knocking on the door.

    I'm extremely humbled when I look what Castia has become. Back in May 2016 when it all began, the goal was a nice chill community with a steady 30-40 players. This dream goal was quickly exceeded in less than a month and we have been growing ever since. We have had over 250,000 unique player joins which absolutely insane.
    The amount of time and energy you guys have put into the community is just amazing. I'm very proud to say that I was part of making Castia. I'm forever thankful to the amazing staff and content team who have poured hundreds of hours into improving and sustaining this community.

    However, this is where the journey ends for me. I am stepping down from my position as owner of Castia and will be handing over the title and responsibility to a good friend, Atlas

    Atlas is a great guy with over 6 years of experience of managing minecraft servers. I have no doubt in mind that Castia can reach even greater heights with him behind the wheel. I know he has already been in contact with the staff and content team to squish out all the remaining 1.13 and other misc. bugs on the servers.
    I will also be sticking around, although mostly in the background, advising Atlas and helping him to ensure a smooth transition.
    I might also pop into Discord Voice Chat every now and then. Feel free to add me on Discord, Naskel#0294 if you want to keep in touch.

    If you have any questions about this change, just comment below and me or Atlas will answer.


    Thank you for everything,
    Naskel

    We'll miss you Naskel, thank you for creating Castia and bringing years and years of joy to tens of thousands of people across the globe. Without Castia, I'd still be twiddling my thumbs, looking for a different towny server that isn't even half as good as Castia has been. We really do appreciate your transparency with this and we'll all miss you, buddy.

    I think I can safely assume that saying this I'll be speaking on behalf of the community:
    We'll miss you, Naskel. Thank you for dedicatiing so much time to the server and nourishing it till it grew into something beautiful. We appreciate the countless hours you dedicated to fixing everything on the server, making the server into what it is today would be impossible without your dedication and love.
    Good luck in your life and hope to see you around. <3

    Naskel, as I've already told you, thank you for everything. I wish you good luck in your future endeavours! I believe we'll all miss you! Without you, Castia would not exist.

    Moving forward, I welcome Atlas to the server! I'm looking forward to see how Castia would evolve under your leadership!
