[3. Trade][Ampersand]: so sad

[3. Trade][Gunor]: YEAH

[3. Trade][Bigjim]: thats what he gets for f’n with animals.

[3. Trade][Carnivera]: the stingray rolled a crit with its barb “20”

[3. Trade][Aborted]: that was a 62 elite Stingray tho

[3. Trade][Halfmoo]: Probably named as well.

[3. Trade][Clownshoes]: I can’t beleave that happen by a sting ray

[3. Trade][Halfmoo]: Only a named stingray could bring down my man steve.

[3. Trade][Crilogan]: and it was a named raid boss

[3. Trade][Carnivera]: yep.

Every culture grieves uniquely. We’ll all miss Steve and our thoughts go out to his family.

Tell me about it, Serg.
