Farewell to Basto was created by xflea
Last Wednesday night we were hit with terrible news. Basto passed away. He died working as a miner underground.

Everyone who tried to compete at Sensible Soccer online – knew Basto. When most of us were starting to play online, Basto was already there. He joined with the number 1350. Since then, he played almost 7,000 online matches, for the last time in 2017.

Whenever Basto appeared at an offline tournament, the atmosphere immediately got even better. He loved to joke around, and his phrase „sssiijjjj” made a permanent entry into the Sensible dictionary.

His death made us realize how fantastic community we were able to create. Basto, working as a miner, knew the dangers of his work. Therefore he once asked his wife, that in case of any accident she also informed us. This is a perfect example how a single childhood game changed our lives.

Basto, you will always be with us!

This is a very sad news. I played a lot of times with Basto. He was a good player and an honest person. Condolences to his family. I will never forget Basto and the funny times that we spent playing Sensible Soccer.
