The Loss of a Friend – Rogue Sniper

These posts are never fun to make. The few we have had to make are a few too many. June 11, 2019 Rogue Sniper or “Yokai” was taken from us due to a fatal accident.

A veteran member of EdgeGamers who joined in early 2007, Rogue Sniper contributed greatly towards the success of our Counter-Strike: Source and Global Offensive servers. Acting in Advisor capacity for close to 5 years, Rogue’s time and efforts were mostly spent around our Jail servers and the recreation of member favorite map Highschool. Even after stepping down from Leadership, Rogue continued to forge forward in developing amazing content for the community through his unique approach to Jail maps. No one can question his attention for detail and raw determination once he had started a project.

Although we are an online community, you make true friendships here. Often times you may find some of your best friends through gaming. They could be across the United States or even the World. This is certainly the case with Rogue Sniper.

A good, genuine, incredibly talented person and I know that he will be remembered by many.

A great guy, and for someone like me who was a younger member at the time, he was a great person to look up to.

He was an inspiration and pure joy to be around … If Rogue was anything it was dedicated, if he put his mind to something it got done or until he screamed enough to get it done.

Rogue Sniper will be missed. Our condolences set out to his family and friends. Out of respect for Rogue Sniper’s privacy and secrecy, identifying details have been intentionally left out.
