Don’t be dismayed at good-byes...
A farewell is necessary before we can meet again.
I announced this news to mostly in the company and to the mods, but I have been trying to find a good way to break it to my beloved community. There have been some changes due to the restructure.
Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be working for Funcom as your Community Coordinator after March 15th, 2013. Just being here for 1 amazing year and some change, it is time to step off the crazy train. The news was a big surprise, but your fearless Warlord Yarruka never fears a new challenges.
Chin up, my friends. I will be fine. Life is a huge adventure.
All the awesome events we had in the fall will never be forgotten. Hiding around random places in “The Secret World” was the most fun I had in a game. It was a huge blast to see some of you “almost” find me, but skip the one tree I was behind. Hehehehe.
Dungeon Wars was my first big event I tried running for the dungeon crawlers, and it was a major hit. I was hoping to run more in the near future, but things just got in the way. I'm very happy to see all of you so excited to run dungeons again, and to see newcomers ready to try the challenge. Even if you were under geared for the Dungeon, you still had fun trying to complete the fastest time.
With all these event I have done and helped out with, you guys have totally got this. I have never seen such an awesome community that loves to get together in-game and party all night. What I always missed about other MMOs in my lifetime. Everyone in the TSW community knows how to have a good time in The Horned God.
I Plan to stay around in TSW as a normal player and show my face around The Horned God in my fuzzy bunny slippers and trench coat. My amazing Yarruka powers to teleport will no longer be with me. Being a huge dungeon crawler fan, I am always down to go run a few with the community when I am still around though. Go Dragons!!!
What does this mean for the community? Well, now you will want to PM Effiluna or Tarib for community related questions and concerns. Unfortunately, this does mean “Yarruka's Dungeon Wars” will no longer be running, but doesn't mean you can't test yourself against others. Twitch.TV is an awesome place to shine, and share your times for others to compete with. You still have the support of a very awesome community team, developers, producers, and designers who are always there for you guys.
Any who, you guys will be just as amazing without Morteia and myself. We will still be around as you, the community, now. Think of us as the awesome gamers we are, but without the superpowers anymore. Also, don't be shy to message me on the forums if you need a hot beverage and someone talk about issues with. We'll only have tea and hot chocolate now, though.
So, come in here for a group hug. We are all still buddies.
