    All good things must come to an end

    Post by TDA Reborn on Tue Apr 19, 2011 5:51 am

    I am saddened to say that by request of the original founders of TDA (DJD, and The Detonator) Turbo Duel Academy will be going down in exactly seven days from today.

    Many of us had a great time here, but it's time to move on to bigger and better things.

    TDA will never be the same as it once was, and so in order to keep what little pride it has left it will be deleted in one week.

    DJD and The Detonator would like to thank you all for your support, and hope that the road may bring the loyal members of TDA and them back together once more.

    Sincerely,
    The TDA Staff.

    TDA was one of the most succesfull academies because of Jon and Det. Too bad it had to end like that. But like the Reborned admin said, KC is a good option.

    I'm sorry but the deletion of TDA needs to be done and will be done. Like Reborn said DJD and I have both pondered the thought of deleting/closing down TDA for a very long time. When we first decided to pack bags we had two options:
    - Give people what they wanted and keep TDA open hoping it would continue with new staff at the same successful rate.
    - Close it down and end an era while we were still on a high note.


    We now know the second option probably would have been the best for this place while it was still possible. We are not saying the new staff are bad, nor are we saying the members failed TDA, but the spark has just gone and its time TDA moved on and ceased to be.

    Just remember that when one door closes... another one opens...

    Good luck to whatever our members and most appreciated staff do in the future.

    I am very sad that it had to come to this but I have to say I saw it coming due to all the inactive people here at TDA.

    It was a pleasure dueling with you guys, I enjoyed being a Tester here at Turbo Duel Academy. I wish you guys the best with what you guys do with your lives. Hopefully we all can duel again sometime which I see happening from HAM. But I guess for now I will be focusing more on my Major League Gaming career. Again guys it was fun!

    Well, I just hate to part from this place so badly. But I won't part from the memory of the first day and the other days that followed when I came. Seems like yesterday. It has been over a 2 year blast with colorful members that came and went for their own reasons greatly respected.
    I spoke to both DJD and Reborn a few days ago about my resigning not just being Admin, but TDA altogether. Why is because I wish to follow my personal wants elsewhere. I think Det's right that when there are new opportunities yet to behold, one won't know until you see what's on the other side of that door.
    I believe Crescent will do well for the remainder of TDA's days because he's determined to not let TDA go as well as I do all the way through to the end. TDA has grown on me to be so much fun and I was more than willing to help.
    Everyone, you have been most grateful and I appreciate your fun. Your memories here will not be forgotten.

    There's one thing left for me to do and I do it every time. Smile
    There's one more dance . It suits for the final occasion at the TDA ball room.
    Enjoy and farewell TDA, you have been the greatest to many eyes and more.


    Sincerely,

    Sorry to hear that CG Sad I'm sorry that I dropped on you due to my holiday trip Sad Really sad to see someone like you, who has put so much into TDA go. Now that you're gone, we need to really get it together to put TDA back up there.
    What is there left to say? I'll miss you and your relaxed chats, your fun behavior and I'll miss the CatGirl name to the left side of the posts Sad

    I can't say farewell.
    I can say goodbye. Sad
    But it is sad to leave TDA.
    I have met people who are kind and I cannot let them go and I WON'T.
    I may let TDA go,but I never going to leave my friends with it.

    So if anyone who want to have contact with me on Hamachi,join these channels:
    4 Dragons - no pass
    BG Duelists - no pass

    I hope you all read this and join one of these channels that I gave it to you. Smile Smile

    Hey guys haven't been on for a few months, but I'm sad to see such a great place close. I've joined since the very beginning, but I know I haven't stuck through all the way to the end due to many things. Just wanted to say that this was the best academy out there and you may not find another great one like this for a long time. Good Luck to all of you in the future!

    I hope you will be on next week, I have something to talk to you Nhant. Also, don't talk like that, this will not close down until the fat lady sings, and since we have no fat ladies it will never close.

    On a closing note, I am asking for permission from TDA's administrators to let me advertise a forum when I come back on 26th April to the TDA members so that they may regroup on a new ground to have fun together like they used to. Also, if the previous request is approved, I am also asking to please not delete the forum until the 1st of May, so that all the people that are still caring about the TDA community can receive my PM's and join the new forum.

    Where did you see that

    C'mon guys really? Don't pretend to be the creators of TDA just to get members to join your projects. Anyway, I know a post by me has been long overdue, and I've let someone from the KC community try to take over TDA. He doesn't want to reveal his identity which is why he called himself reborn. So let me clear some things up:

    1. I am not TDA Reborn
    2. I am in no way going to try to bring back TDA. I am much too busy.
    3. TDA will close down.

    I know many of you wish to salvage this place, but believe me there is nothing left to salvage here guys. I'm sorry for this random harsh post, but it's time for you guys to let go of TDA as det and I have let go of it. The academy scene has gone way too long without change and it's simply just boring now. Change and innovation is what made this academy great, and surely change and innovation is what will make a new academy great. However, TDA is just not capable of doing this anymore. Not with the founder account under the control of a guy that likes to delete forums as a hobby.

    This will probably be one of my last posts before leaving so if anyone wants to get in contact with me I can be found in KCD.

    or in this ham:
