    Default Odd.

    I'm new around here and didn't even get the chance to get to know this person, but I'd been lurking the forums of late and read a few of his posts and he seemed pretty decent.

    This is the second game I've watched as they sack the CM. (First was SWTOR) Over there, they lead us on for about 6 months and then fired a bunch of people and shortly after that they went F2P. (I quit before TORtanic went down. Collector's Edition box sitting in my closet now.)

    I'd started to fund this game shortly before it went F2P. (Bought digital SL Infinity edition + a single month to see how it was...then decided to keep doing so and threw down for a 6 month sub.)

    News like this doesn't leave me very impressed with where things are likely going, so I just removed my renewal subscription. Paid up till early Nov. We'll see how things turn out, but I have a feeling this means more bad things are on the way and I'll likely have to find another game.

    I'm talking about how she sat on the forums answering questions even through all the hate, how she brought it up at the end of the livestream and then interrupted Defiance for Scott to come in for a quick interview thing.
    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).

    LOL The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. Look at the email they just sent out.

    Don't know if this has been posted, but Elrar recently replied to a thread on mmo-champion. Here is a link, and here is what he said:

    Hey all,

    I won't be long - but wanted to say it has been the utmost pleasure getting to spend each day with all of you who make up the RIFT Community. You will be missed & I will fondly remember the time we had together.

    Not sure what my future holds at this point, but I'm excited for the possibilities - gaming or beyond! I hold no ill will towards Trion or the folks still working hard to succeed today. The RIFT development team is full of kick-*** individuals who very much share the same passion for the game that I shared with you.

    While I've never really used it, I'm going to try out managing my own Twitter account to better stay in touch with those who want to: www.twitter.com/GiantApproved

    I'm also musing a Twitch channel, at least with my new-found free time, if I start anything up it would be at www.twitch.tv/elrar

    Thanks again everyone & my best wishes to you all
    I hope he's fine with it being reposted here, but it's the second result if you Google "Elrar leaves Trion" so it's not like it's secreted away.

    Rift is like those mounts...fast a Fu*k and just tumbling down a mountain.
    You are clearly handicapped so I'll keep this post simple so you can understand it. F2p is a huge success for many companies that implement it as it has for Trion and Rift. If f2p lost them money I'm pretty sure some of the biggest game producers wouldnt be doing it. Also, you clearly dont know anything about how business works and I'm not going to bother trying to explain it to you because it's likely not something you would understand.
    All those that have come before you have also failed in their quest to subdue me

    Wow. I thought Trion had one of the best Community teams. Elrar you will be missed. Live streams will not be the same without you.

    Not surprised but still sad to see Elrar go. Good luck in your future endeavors and I hope to see your name pop up soon in another game.

    Elrar will be missed but get a grip people. He didn't die, you all act like he got hit by a truck.

    Someone as good as he was will get a job anywhere, even in China if they called him.

    It's just a game and the same that you played yesterday, last week and tomorrow so chillax. Some of you morons saying "I quit" over this are ridiculous. You want to kill Trion and Rift, lol? What?

    You're quitting a game you liked yesterday because they canned a guy who didn't even make any of it. Elrar was a good rep, but grippage please

    Exactly. 'Cause once upon a time, great games were made by "faceless developers" and nobody ever cared about getting to know said developers on such intimate levels. I, for one, still don't. I'm handing over my dollars so that a good game gets made. That's it. I don't care about the style of Elrar's beard (if he has one!) or what brand of potato chips Dahanese likes if she happens to eat chips. I just want a good game to play when I come home and leave the inner-workings stuff to the inner-workers.

    I understand wanting the details, but coming from it (thinking in terms of your own jobs) I hope you can understand why we don't share the details of this kind of stuff.

    No one is ever going to try and forget Elrar. That would be an awful thing to do.

    Now I'm going to have to remember to look up your name. :P

    I'm making some zucchini enchiladas and posting whilst they cook. It smells pretty good in here.
