to announce that -THE- has withdrawn from the battlefield. Joint Operations was one campaign too far and took a heavy toll on all the players. As such we have decided to rest our weary bodies and await the next NL game.
Many have left the battlefield already and are plying their trade in the lands of Azeroth in the World of Warcraft,
And a few brave and hardy souls have joined the little known Dutch Foreign Legion outfit aka The Dutch Alliance ( formerly www.tda-squad.nl ) to continue the fighting in Indonesia and in the International Conflict that is brewing.
In short, THE will no longer be playing matches, but the spirit of THE will live on ready to recommence battle when the call comes.
