I have tried and tried to remain quiet, bit my tongue countless times, but have to say my peace. I have watched Elite evolve over the past two years. There are so many misconceptions out there, I will attempt to dispel a few. I, for one, want to personally thank Issa for his foresight. Two years ago this was a fledgling league associated with Cases. Issa had the vision, knowledge, time to donate, and resources available to make a better "wheel". I challenge anyone to tell me of one person that would have done all this for so many people without remuneration. If we include the time designing, developing software, programming, altering to make this easier for us all, well over half a million dollars US have been expended. He will never recoup his investment monetarily. Issa is not a man to rest on his laurels, stop where we are, and attempt to recoup his expenditure. He is continually thinking and searching for new ideas, formats, programs, and ways to make this the best tournament league on the internet. I for one believe it is and am excited to be on this ride to the top.
One thing he taught me quickly was that no matter how hard you try, you cannot please everyone. For anyone that thinks things change for the sake of change, you are mistaken. Every single idea has been weighed, thought out completely, structured, and modified before implementation. When a change is made and a better idea comes along, he is willing to change or compromise.
I take the attacks on him personally as it is only because of Issa that we are all here. I completely agree we have the best members/players/directors of any league out there, and I have played many. Who is ultimately responsible for that? Who is responsible for a far better tournament site than any other? Who has invested tens/hundreds of thousands of dollars getting a minimal return? Issa, Issa, Issa. I also have invested (yes, I consider this an investment in my relaxation) hundreds of dollars and am proud of the results.
While not perfect, it is the closest I have found for my recreation dollar. While it appears we are going through growing pains right now, we are still adding new members at record paces. Many members are playing free, and don’t misunderstand me, Issa is the one that has designed Elite so that we will always have free members and looks out for them more than you will ever know. The “new” YEP fees was not a random figure pulled out of a hat but was carefully considered based on numerous factors, including the wishes of the majority.
I will end with a challenge. The next time you think you see something that can be improved, don’t make threats, don’t whine and complain about it, think it through and come up with a better way to do it. Issa also understands many minds are better than a few and together we can make Elite, by far, the best gaming community on the net.

Thank you for listening.

Steve
