C&C The First Decade has more meaning than meets the eye, but let me clarify and remind, we're committed to the future of C&C. I suggest you read between the lines of my words. I would not be here as a community manager to you or personable face if there was no reason. Take what you want from my words, but I can only assure you, put your fears and doubts to rest. Committed is a word I standby, and you have my word on that.
