Seth Killian who is better known as S-kill to the FCG (Fighting Game Community) , has been the public face (besides that troll Ono) for Capcom and it’s fighters for quite some time now. Just about any major event that headlined a Capcom fighter, you found Killian there spreading his Zen-like knowledge and putting smiles on people’s faces. So you can imagine my dismay when he recently annouced that as of June 22nd, he will be leaving Capcom. This man has done some great things for the FGC and when I say he’ll be sorely missed that is a huge understatement.
You can catch the specific’s of his departure over at CapcomUnity.com however I wanted to leave a excerpt from his post that shows that the man has a certain amount of class that you really see in the video game industry anymore.
And finally, to the FGC: In no uncertain terms, you have been my reason for everything. A game can be incredible, but it’s the players and where they take it that elevate it into legend. Both as individuals and as a group, you have taught me more than I could have ever thought possible. Every hour on the road and every air mile towards my first million doesn’t begin to repay the debt I feel to all of you. You are a family to me. Today, the community is strong, and growing stronger. We fight, we make mistakes, we argue, and we compete but in the end we have each other. To you, I can only say “thank you.” You continue to electrify the world and show the power not just of a game, but of a living, breathing community. Strive to be your best selves, to share our magic with the next generation, and above all else, take care of each other. We are a family.
Best of luck to you Seth, where ever you go. Let’s all just hope it ends up being with another company that also has their hands in the FGC.
