Firstly, I know that many people don't care about this piece of Warzone history at all. But I felt like I'd share it anyway because it has meaning to me and people who were close to Tack during his last WL run and especially the members of Harmony and some RoR players. I will probably find this thread years into the future and read it just to relive the memories because they are dear to me.

So Tacky was a former 101st player. He started to become well known during 2016, back during the strat community's Skype days when the site was called Warlight. He was a really good player, but notoriously unreliable. He had a history of getting booted in important games, and he was even kicked out of 101st after no showing several CL games. He eventually goes on hiatus, and he comes back and pitches the idea to start a new clan with me. His idea for this clan was for it to be revolutionary in a sense, because his dream was to make it an A tier clan which means that it would be competing with the 'status quo' of warlight clans (Masters, GG, etc).

So I decided to hop on board and help him with this clan, and he pays for it with coins he earned from coin games. Tacky and I became good friends and he respected me as a clan leader due to my past experience single handedly growing NWO, GV and other clans. We began with the two of us leading together. Below is a 'snapshot' of Harmony a few weeks after it formed.

While our clan didn't have many names that stood out dramatically, other than No Mercy (my recruit), Nutella (tacky's recruit), Belzebu, and Rene Descartes, N, etc, we did have enough skill in our clan to definitely content for B, especially with Tacky, Nutella, Belzebu, and No Mercy. During this time however, while we had no chance to compete in CL yet, we were very active in the real-time scene, dominating RoR games and initiating tournaments against other clans.

We had a lot of fun playing together in Harmony. We worked well together because he was the more strategic leader and I was the more social leader. We began to start series' of tournaments on different maps. But suddenly something very strange happened, and it took place during an internal Harmony tournament if I remember correctly. Tacky just... vanished. He disappeared. It was very sudden and completely unexpected.

At that point, Harmony was over. There was no way that I would be willing to run it alone, especially a clan intended to 'revolutionize' CL. Sadly I knew after weeks into Tacky's disappearance that it was probably over for good, and it was. It has currently been over a year of Tacky being completely inactive, not even logging into his account once. Since then, most of our members have joined new clans, such as GG, M'H and LuFredd. A couple of our members simply left without joining a new clan.

I don't know if you will ever see this Tac, but I miss you and I am sure there are others in the community who remember you and would be happy to talk to you again. You were an important part of the community 2-3 years ago, back during the Skype days especially and I really really look forward to a possible Harmony revival some day. 😢

I am sorry about your clan.

Its probably best to have multiple leaders who you trust who only put in the minimum effort and that way nobody is overworked. There is no pay in managing a clan and very little appreciation. Its just not an efficient use of your time if you are looking for those things.

It be like that sometimes. People get busy with stuff and don't have time. I remember Tacky back when he first joined FCC and decided to make a new clan of his own. He was a pretty skilled player but I always wondered where Tacky and the clan went. Thanks for reminding me about it.

Maybe one day Harmony will rise back. It did seem pretty promising. If blitz (which is still recruiting) can come back from the dead to join the Clan League, Harmony can definitely do the same if Tacky or someone else can fill the void for him. Guess time will tell.

After tacky separated from outlaws he was always disappearing then reappearing later.

He's likely not gone, but he's also never gonna stay.

Basically that; Harmony was never going to last with unreliable leader like that, which is why I always thought it's but a meme clan.
Tacky is/was cool to have around though for sure.
