A Fond Farewell to Forsaken World

Hey everyone,

This is my last day at Perfect World Entertainment, and thus the last post from me on the Forsaken World forums.

A great life changing opportunity has presented itself for me, and I cannot let it pass me by. I know some of you may scream "There goes FW! PWE is ending! Doomstuff", but in all honesty, Forsaken World & PWE have an amazingly strong future ahead. The extra life charity livestream is coming up, and will hopefully be a great jump start to many more livestreams to come for the game, spotlighting the great game that Forsaken World is. I've helped Domino, the streamer, get ready for the game and he's super excited to play with you all.

So keep your voice going strong for what you want to see so the person following me can know exactly what needs to be pushed the hardest to the devs. This year has been a big year for changes with most of the ones to come and that have come credited to you all. Thanks to you all in our discussions/polls, the devs now know exactly what our US communities sentiments are and where you stand all the hot topics of the game. With one of most game changing and largest FW expansions on the horizon, you can expect many of the changes coming to be a direct result of that communication.

I have love for you all, especially those who've articulated their thoughts and opinions in a civilized manner, and remember that your voice is strongest when focused on a single goal. Take each step at a time, and I hope each of you continue being the awesome person you are today.

Sincerely with love & gratitude,

"DoD" : Defender of Dreams

    Yeah looks like Forsaken World is doomed.
    On 8/20/14 at 9:07 AM we have been informed that we lost another member of the FW team to go off to another title. RIP GreyjoyKraken. All hope for FW is forever lost...

    May the FORCE be with you on the new path you have taken.

    Life is itself a game. Strategize well so you dont stumble upon the traps of destiny.

    Thank you for mentioning the incoming upgrade, hope they balance the characters well.

    Best wishes for you . I believe your decision to quit here is the only one that makes sense.
    I really wish you a company that does not let their workers and customers down like this one.


    As for beating up the new guy - should one come at all - that sadly depends on things not in his or her powers at all and i do not believe the general attitude of PWE towards this game will change.

    The communications part is either a bad joke, utmost sarcasm, or a sign on how extremely different PWEs point of view is to players reality.

    One thing that might be looked into is the arc database failures which cannot be blamed on Wanmei.
    The many other issues still existing affect different groups of players so instead of waiting too long for the community to prioritize i believe it would be a good sign if ANYTHING at all would finally get fixed. There have not been (m)any results of all those "working on it" thingies and the resulting lack of credibility might spoil the start of the next one.
    Who is this "general failure" and why is he reading my disc ?[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    Cheers DoD ;)

    I cannot say that I blame you in anyway for jumping ship - I am confident that your commitment to the customer base will be more appreciated and supported by your new employer.

    As for the replacement guy/gal ........ we will be gentle (*nudge, nudge, wink, wink*)

    You will certainly be missed. I'm currently on hiatus with the game and not sure when I'll be back or if I'll be back (the "if" depends on if the game's still around when I'm ready to return). As you can tell, I am keeping tabs with how things are coming along. I won't say the game is doomed based on this considering I'd figure the game would be doomed regardless simply based on other factors. Doom and gloom aside, I do hope for a good replacement (or at least A replacement).
