A message from Crabclaw and Loki

Hello everyone,

For myself and Loki, today marks the end of an era. Having worked on Forsaken World since the first closed beta phase up through today, it is difficult to consider the fact that today marks the last day either of us will work on this game. We are moving onwards and upwards in PWE, and will have shiny new positions starting next week.

I consider Forsaken World one of the best games I've ever CM'd for since I started at this company in 2010. I'm glad to mark the end of my community management career with this title, and am extremely thankful for all of the experiences I've been able to have with all of you. Most of the experiences, anyway. The Halloween page can die in a fire.

I may pop in game to spam system chat sometime, so keep an eye out.

TL;DR - Loki and I got promoted and are leaving FW. It's been real, everyone :)

    I, too, have trouble considering life after FW. I've been on this game since you all first heard it existed through today-but all things must end. Greyjoy will be here to be the new Loki, but I will miss a lot of the personalities on these forums.

    The only way I can express this is with animals, I encourage you all to do the same!

    How I feel about never facepalming at your threads again:

    Well...I guess I should say congrats on the new positions...and all that...

    But I don't see how the people who will fill in for you will ever put up with the shenanigans on this forum. I mean...you were slowly introduced to it in small doses!
    Part of the fun of playing the game is wading through 98% of the idiots and trolls to find the 2% who you enjoy playing with.

    wow, not quite sure who you are, but rather than hding behind an alt with only this one post, why not be a "man" and post under your real account....becuase clearly you have something to hide

    Aren't you displaying an alt? Lvl 43 priest? Some special reason why you aren't DrakenFyre anymore???

    crab leaving again? .... sigh.... i hope whoever is replacing him has been lurking for a while at least, or a world of hurt is in store for a few of the more "infamous" members here... (myself included)

    you two will be missed, lokis especially since she at least reads the PMs.

    btw, where be you two going.... i may wish to stalk you there later.

    I'm not drakenfyre on here, Nyxa is my mod account,not hiding anything, as for my avatar it's broken since I'm not even a priest, I've posted about that a number of times in threads about the broken avatars

    I already asked that last maint thread! Copycat! Then again, I never looked at the thread again to see whether someone gave an answer.

    Also good luck to crab and Loki, finally you're rid off us!

    Ray is actually in a different department these days, but he's still alive and kicking. I'll shoot my nerf gun in his direction and yell at him that you all say hi.

    Luckily for you guys, crab and I had nothing to do with bogos and charge promos. That's up to the person we used to report to ^^

    It's been real, guys, be nice to Grey, he knows as much as I do about the game at this point and will handle your bug questions. And post pictures of kitties.
