    Oooh, found my shard first bacon I got from the dispenser Elrar popped down on Icewatch.

    Pristine stack of 5.

    WTS Elrar Bacon, comes with certificate of Shard First.

    This is a sad day. Very disappointed, I feel this restructuring is doing more harm than good.

    Good luck "consolidating" when you are removing entire offices and employees which have been a staple to the company.

    I really think it's going to drive people away and then you are really in trouble.

    Default I never post, but this leaves me absolutely gutted.

    A highlight of my Friday afternoons has become watching Elrar on Twitch. His enthusiasm and openness with this community made me want to play Rift, even when all my friends had left for other games.

    I loved F2P, and spent a good chunk of money on it, but I think I'm done.

    I understand that Trion is a business and has to make business decisions, but this doesn't feel right to me. Just a posting about him no longer being at Trion and that's it? This is not a good way to market or communicate to your existing client base, and makes me firmly believe that somebody in a decision-making capacity didn't learn the basics of PR.

    Trion, if you don't have the confidence to be open and pro-active (ick, buzzword) in the decisions you make and communicating those decisions to your userbase, how can you expect your customers to stand by you as a company?

    It needs to be NOW. Tonight. I'd make him drop all things. The community of this game has been hit by a couple of asteroids and this one was a planet killer. Questions on this need to be answered either by him or by Hartsman sooner rather than later. Do not leave us speculating on why you wont like what comes out of that mess.

    No nonsense no BS. Give it to us straight and if necessary dirty. Just the Truth. We deserve that.

    Not sure if he'll leave a goodbye or not sometimes they dont. This isnt the first CM that's this has happened to in one form or another it wont be the last.

    There is the possibility he left on his own accord. There are a couple of new projects that someone of Elrar's talents and skill probably would not want to sit on the sidelines for.

    But as far as i am concerned. We need answers. Now.

    1. Who made this decision?
    2. Why was this decision made?
    3. If he's leaving for another game which one?
    4. Can you give us any friggin good news?!

    add your own to that list.

    How much REX do I need to buy to get him back?
    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).

    I just want answers. I'm trying really hard not to get angry, but I'm really really damn close.

    I had this whole thing typed out, but it feels unnecessary..

    Elizabeth, please improve in game relations. I've only seen livestreams, forums, and other internet media mentioned.

    Very disappointing news, Elrar was always the life and soul of the Livestreams, always fun when he logged into your shard...we'll miss you Elrar, raise a toast to the King of Mead




    Farewell to the King of the Shepherds

    My favorite event in this whole game.
    I will miss Elrar so much good luck too all the new directions and directive.

    I work with Scott on a daily basis - there isn't a crazy bureaucracy here. So yes, Scott will be coming on the live stream but also keep in mind he's the CEO of the company (and thusly has a couple three things to do on a daily basis.)

    What you hear from me will be the truth. And not BS. And when I can't tell you something, I won't. I won't beat around the bush.

    The best news I can give you is that I think we can all agree that Scott loves this game and has a great vision for it. I believe in it. And it's to do right by you guys. You are all that matter.
