    Please try to keep up with the interaction that Elrar provided us on a daily basis. I know your team is going to be stretched across multiple games and regions, but Elrar was a staple point for the community.

    No one did as much as he did for us, bringing us updates and information. He really was the best liaison between the development staff and the community.

    I think Hartsman should make some sort of a speech on the live stream tonight, we're getting ****ed left, right and center with the restructuring, need that morale boost!

    This has all been handled horribly.

    Letting CM's go and not making an announcement is pretty ****ty.

    I'm...i'm in Shock. Elrar was a day 1 guy just like a good portion of us... Wow.. Wow....I pray this was HIS decision that he had a chance to do something even bigger and NOT one made by Hartsman.

    I hope we get answers and fast...this is...disturbing.

    Seriously, what the **** is going on? I'm really disappointed with this and I surely hope that Elrar is moving on to something better and not getting ****ed over with a lay off or something.

    This is depressing as hell. I'm not looking forward to this at all.

    This is rather depressing news. Elrar has been the best community liason (very active and a genuinely funny guy to boot) I've seen for any MMO period. I hope the rest of you will be at least putting some effort into keeping the same sort of interaction.

    Also I think the players need to hear some kind of good news soon. This has been a rough week.

    I wish Mr. Nichols the best and hope he's able to find a new position somewhere soon. As others have said, he will be missed.

    The worst part, of course, is that there is obviously some major upheaval going on over at Trion Worlds, likely to cause a certain amount of angst amongst us, the players.

    What the hell is going on? So many names and faces over the past few months getting the boot. And here I thought F2P was a success. If that huge boost in players from going F2P didn't help the situation, I fear there is probably nothing to save Trion and Rift.

    Anyone have Elrar on twitter? I like following dev's/community folks to see where they land.

    EDIT to add:
    Good luck dahanese, OverloadUT, and Morgana. There's mostly a good bunch of folks here, and communication is awesome.

    Now that the game's free to play they can't have a man running around yelling MEEEAAAAADDDDDDD, come on now kids are playing
    The only way that someone from Cluster 2 is actually as bad as you all say is if they started playing this game in 2.3 (Free to Play launch).

    Or maybe he's like me and rarely if ever uses LinkedIn. I log into it only ever by mistake when I'm viewing someone else's :P
