    It's like Deja Vu (er Deja Vanguard) all over again.

    Well its the worst decision Trion ever made imo.

    I was happy Hartsman was coming back, but I will take my words back.

    I'm willing to bet sometime very soon there will be some sort of "State of the Union/Game" type message from Scott. Give him a minute to collect his thoughts and get them in order for us! I'm sure his office probably isn't even set up yet

    Well, when Elrar applies for a new job, at least he can put a link to this thread on his resume.

    when scott was announced CEO i got a bit of a chill from what he said in the quick words quoted by him. he said something regarding the future of trion and rift in general that sounded to me like layoffs and selling out to a bigger company, a publisher or even a developer comes to mind. especially now that its all unfolding, i don't usually voice my skepticism but I wish i had.

    You won't hear me fighting you on the fact I haven't been posting here: that was Elrar's domain before. I'm the director of the department and previously that meant being behind the scenes almost all the time. That's changing now. In fact, that's the first change I implemented in our new grand plan. So you'll be seeing a lot more of me - not just here, but everywhere. I'll most likely be writing all your updates, too.

    Listen, I am going to miss Elrar too, the thing is Trion will tell us what is happening in general but they will not give us the reasoning for every business decision that is made. It is a private company. Additionally depending on the reason for someone leaving, telling others the reason can be actionable in court.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    Is that multitasking? Or is it a desperate attempt to slash operating expenses by having management do the work of the recently laid-off subordinates?

    This wasn't really about Elrar specifically, we have been told NOTHING, I understand very well that it's a business decision but you can't completely disregard the people that give you money either.

    That's true, but I think the majority of us are just trying to express that if the decision was Elrar's personal one, or even if it was for "cause", then I (we?) could understand that, maybe even accept it; but if his position was 'reorganized out of existence' (as Dilbert would put it) because someone up the food chain decided that his position wasn't "necessary", then many of us would respectfully disagree. His devotion, exuberance, and dedication to all things Rift is one of the things that set Rift apart.

    The show may go on, but it will never feel the same.
