When is the next Weekly Post?
Any word on this yet?
It will be here a week from someday
I am honestly quite befuddled as to how Lightmare and Yodo1 expect us (their players and customers) to trust either their integrity or professionalism, when they have chosen an unprofessional CM who has demonstrated repeatedly a complete lack of integrity.
Continuing with Drew as the CM is causing a very real damage to their brand, and whatever benefit he is providing to them (none that I can see) cannot be worth the value that a positive reputation can lend to a company. Keep in mind a reputation can follow a company very easily from one game to another, even if both companies choose to walk away from IW at this point, there is a real danger of damage to future projects by their association to this.
At this point I am honestly willing to say that Drew's elevation to CM was the single worst decision in the history of this game - and that is quite a statement if anyone is aware of the checkered history of IW. Any one of the volunteer community mods would do an infinitely better job as Community Manager than Drew has done, and what's more, all of them actually care about IW and genuinely want it to succeed. I don't know Drew's motivations or intentions, but, from where I am sitting, between his continual refusal to communicate with the few dozen people who are engaged with the game, and his abrasive and insulting attitude and comments towards leading players in the game and community, he has demonstrated clearly that the success of the game is not his primary driving motivation.
