  1. * I'm cross posting this from schnoog's topic/post over at spladderladder. Hope you don't mind schnoog * It is with sadness that I have to inform you today that macbeth (also known as ETS-Kate or Marianne ) has passed away. She put her heart and soul into helping us hour after hour and became not only the administrator but also the soul of Splatterladder. I will always remember her as a friendly, dedicated and kind-hearted grande dame of the Enemy Territory community. My thoughts are with her family. Volker

  3. I'm at a total loss of words at the moment. 😭 Don't weep at my grave, For I am not there, I have a date with a butterfly To dance in the air. I'll be singing in the sunshine, Wild and free, Playing tag with the wind, While I'm waiting for thee. The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace After the clouds, the sunshine, after the winter, the spring, after the shower, the rainbow, for life is a changeable thing. After the night, the morning, bidding all darkness cease, after life's cares and sorrows, the comfort and sweetness of peace. You'll always be with us kate ❤️ Much love: -Silky.

  4. Never knew that it was this bad…deeply saddened by the news of her passing. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Very sad of hearing that another person has been lost to this horrible disease. Kate you will be sorely missed by the many people that have known you personally and the ET community. Even though I’ve only been with ETS since 2020 I have played this game for a very long time and have enjoyed being part of the ETS family. Lots of admiration and respect for her keeping the clan going, if it’s a donation that is needed in keeping the site going let me know and I would like to contribute. Rest in Peace Kate

  5. I haven't posted on these forums or played the game in years. I used to play for years on the WF / ETS servers and was a member of the clan mostly because I loved the community. The gameplay was almost secondary. And McBeth/Bethy/kate/Marianne was integral to keeping the servers fun and engaging, keeping things running smoothly. We had tons of fun and ideas for making things interesting. Less hard-core and more about the fun! A Way for Fun, if you will (lol). Goddamn was she passionate about the game and keeping it lively but fair for everyone! And she herself was a lot of fun! I have much respect for who she was. A lot of my detailed memories of those times have faded but a lot of good ones remain with me and I at times have strong nostalgia for those days. And Kate was a huge part of that. Without her, I wouldn't have had my little safe social space in ET. I met a lot of great people on the servers because of her. She will be greatly missed. My condolences to everyone in the clan, servers, and her family.

  8. Got Return To Castle Wolfenstein from my wife for Christmas in 2002. First video game I ever owned. It must have taken me two months to beat it as I crept around every corner so I wouldn’t get shot. Had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Like many here, I’ve been playing this game since it first came online in 2003. Originally Wolfenstein, Enemy Territory; now just Enemy Territory. Only ever joined one clan; Xodus. Still carry the “X” from it in my game name. I decided back then that I was not “a clan guy.” Have only ever played under the one game name, too; anotherwhiner. Never changed it. I don’t know how many servers I’ve played on in twenty years. A lot. Enough to know the good ones are few. When I finally found the ETS server many years ago, I remember frequently getting in-game private messages from Kate asking if all was good. I often told her I kept returning because it was the best-administered server I’d encountered. In the beginning, she asked if I’d join the clan. When I declined, she asked that I at least join the forum. I did, but she soon discovered I wasn’t into posting on it. I always liked that she didn’t keep bugging me to join but settled into being happy just seeing me playing on the server. It surprised me at first, but I came to like, too, that I couldn’t go two days without playing before I’d get an email from her asking if everything was okay. At first, thinking I was special enough for her to be reaching out to, I soon realized I was not unique. It was she who was the special one. She often asked if I thought the game was “going away.” I reassured her it would be here forever. Over the past two years, her playing time on the server diminished. She complained often of “back problems.” Said she couldn’t sit long and would have to go lie down. On the 11th of January, I emailed her because it was the first time I’d ever not seen “Kate” listed as present on the server. This time, it was me asking if everything was okay. She replied the next day, “Hi yes prolly my et crashed. I am at a private clinic at PARIS cuz healthies problems. Thanks to send me an email.” She included a link to the forum about her health problems, but I couldn’t access it because, apparently, it’s been years since I created the account, and my sign-in doesn’t work any longer. So, I thought she was finally getting her “back problems” fixed. Seven days later… she was gone. I didn’t know Marianne beyond the scant details above. I know she had a caring heart. …Caring enough to take to the streets in protest. …Caring enough to fret about the fate of this game we play. …Caring enough to check in on a too-long absent player. I can’t imagine the depth of the loss her family must feel. We’ve lost a mate. A mate in cyberspace who embraced everyone who loved this game, stuck around, and played by the rules. Prolly my et will crash one day too. Until then, I will think of KATE whenever …wherever I play. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I hope the server continues. Willing to help.

  9. Dear Kate and family, I am shocked and saddened to read that you passed. We've known eachother for the better part of half my life, going back to late 2006. You embraced me as a teenager and gave me a place to feel at home. Years ago I read back some of our conversations we had. Apparently I would say the stupidest shit and you were always nice. While reading those conversations I felt deeply embarrassed about my behavior and it gave me even more respect to you. From the start, you have shown me a lot of kindness and it was always nice talking to you. I've seen you show that same kindness to others, for not only small things, but also the bigger things. Where I would have held a lifelong grudge, you were forgiving to people throughout the years. There is a lot of stuff I can only say I have the utmost respect for how you handled things. You've upheld the clan in it's various names and forms for longer than I ever thought possible. It's always been a pleasure to find the clan time and again still existing after not playing for a couple of years. I know you had many doubts throughout the years about the clan's future. I've always been reluctant to help you make a decision and I always said it was yours to make and I would support it no matter what. In the end you have always kept the clan alive and for that I will forever be grateful. You managed to keep the clan alive for your entire life, Kate. That is a great achievement, in doing so you brought together countless nationalities through the years and and gave them a seoond home. I am sorry I haven't been more vocal about my gratitude towards you. I hope despite that, that you've known this to be the case. My sincerest and deepest thanks to you for providing a place of refuge and a second family through through close to 2 decades. Bye Kate, I will miss you and remember you fondly. My sincere condolences to your husband, son and other family. Thank you for sharing her with us. With sad regards, Nick, aka Napoleon.

  12. Hi all, zugzwang here. I don't really do much gaming these days, since I'm so busy with other stuff, but I saw this incredibly sad news pop up in my email. I did not really know Kate all that well or for that long, but she was always such a lovely person whenever I was around her back in the day. It was also obvious that she cared very much about the server and genuinely wanted other people to enjoy themselves. Her passing is a reminder that we're playing with real people with real lives in these games. I also like to think that Kate wouldn't have wanted everyone sobbing too much, so try to stay positive and remember the good times! My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

  16. I am very sad that such a kind and loving person has passed prematurely from this world. I have no words to express the loss. I have been donating to this server since I first became a member and I would like to continue if we can keep it running in her memory. I know I have been silent most of the time, with very little to comment on. It's because I'm dealing with a loss of my own. These things knock the wind out of our sails. One of our own has fallen and we are diminished. But we must carry on the good fight in their absence. Let me know if there is a plan to continue the server - I will gladly be a part of that effort.

  17. My deepest condolences to Kate's family and friends. Even though I am very new here and only talked to Kate a few times. I've always felt like a part of the family here. She will be greatly missed by a lot of people. This is such a shock and I had no idea. Kate, you will be truly missed. This server has been so much fun to play and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of it. May you rest in peace!! Let me know if there is anything I can help with to keep this server running. This game has brought so much joy to a life that has had its up and downs. My cousin (Thom Cruise) and I talk to each other on a regular basis about all the games we've played and always look forward to the next one.

  18. I am so saddened by this news. My deepest sympathies go out to Kate and her family. Kate endless work and concern for the clan and the servers was evident in all the hours she invested in them. One of Kate's biggest concerns was that the servers were doing well and that people were visiting often. I hope we can keep it going in memory of Kate. Kate will always be our thoughts and prayers.

  31. Hello everyone, I haven't been able to connect to the game in a while. Many things have happened to me recently, I had a daughter, and that completely changed my world and my obligations. As soon as I heard this sad news through the email, I was very surprised, since I did not know Kate's situation. I write today to say goodbye to an extraordinary being, someone who illuminated our lives in unique and memorable ways. I will always fondly remember the moment she invited me to be part of this clan, a gesture that not only defined our virtual friendship, but also created memories. It was evident that her passion for the game went beyond the games, as she built and maintained a clan that transcended virtual borders to become a true family for some. Every laugh shared, every game played and every victory obtained became moments of happiness for me and I would like to think that for the rest as well. Although today we are overcome by the sadness of her departure, we also celebrate the joy of having shared happy moments in her company. Rest in peace Kate. I will always remember you with gratitude and affection.

  32. I was so sorry to hear about this, could hardly believe it. I'm relatively new and playing for fun. I glad for all the times when Kate was on when I was also playing. It's been always obvious how important Kate has been to the server and every on it. She is probably a big reason for the quality of the people who play here. Prayers and peace to Kate, her family, and everyone.

  36. It is with saddened heart that I must tell that on January 19 following breast and lung cancer, Kate passed away. I got the message from her husband today. I dunno what to say, im so sad, I been here since around 2004-2005 and talked with Kate for god knows how many hours, through all the years through the ups and down, the good times and the bad times. I knew she had back pain problems but it came as a shock to all of us when she told us she had breast cancer and was going through chemo. We all hoped she would get through it but as time went on without any news I think I can say for all that we all got more and more worried. I really don't know what to say, i'm still in schock and very sad. Kate my friend we will all miss you, thank you for all you did for us and for the server throughout the years, I will miss our daily chats and having you around. May you rest in peace. My deepest condolosence goes out to her husband, kid, and to her family. As for the server and forum I dont know what will happen, if someone wants to help and pay to keep it running, in memory of Kate. I dont know what Kate would have wanted but she often expressed that she would like to close the server so if that is her wish I will respect that. I will talk to our server hoster and see what we will do and then I wait for her husband to reply. Everyone please leave a kind message for Kate and her family.

  41. Oh, wow. The forum email went into my spam folder, so I didn't read this news until now. It's really sad. I came back to the game about a year and a half ago after so many years off. I didn't even know if there would be servers at all, never mind servers with real people still on them. I only had a few occasions to talk with Kate, but it always seemed like she really loved the clan/game. She was always super nice to me. Wondered why some rando was harassing me one day. Must have seen it in the logs, or something, because it was a while after the fact. She even invited me to join the clan a couple times. Not really sure why I didn't... Really tragic loss.

  43. Yes if more people donate you can just donate smaller amount each, like 10 - 20$ or so, then 50$ will be reached in no time. We can always post here if money is needed, and maybe post here if you donate bigger amount than 20$ so that people doesnt donate more than needed. It's not a big deal if donation goes a little over 50$, they can always be used for the next month. The new paypal will be up soon so you can donate through the donation box on the right side of main forum as before, it's down right now but will be up and visible as soon as I have the new paypal email info.

  45. It's been a long time since our last conversation. While I couldn't get to know her better, I always knew she was a remarkably kind and friendly person. She strived to make this community better. A few years ago, she asked me for help in this regard. I feel ashamed that I couldn't fulfill all her requests. My thoughts and condolences go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.

  50. I will absolutely support any effort to keep at least one server alive! Indeed @-Silky., She needs to be remembered for as long as we can hold on..! Using your server is a quick and clean way to do so, and I will be happy to back you up financially, or any other way . But we have to take some things into account: - What about the forum... It's hosted at the same place as the main server is now, not? Can we get a backup and self host? - We should get control over the ets-clan.com DNS name. This is something I could easily do, but to do that we need the domain authorization key from the current hoster. There is no need for him to keep a hold on it, but we do need his cooperation for this to happen smooth and quick. - Besides the forum, most discussions we had were on another channel. Up to now Kate, Top and me were always online with Skype for that, so... I really hope we can regroup and get this working! Bier
