Theia Stepping Down as CM, Becoming the Event Manager

RohnRohn Saint Peters, MOPosts: 3,740Member Uncommon

As posted on the official forum, a new CM is inbound, and Theia will become the Event Manager.  I liked the events previously run by Theia, so that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    Theia was the best one for CM and belonged in that position for the most part. His events and events in general are never well thought out and full of complaints at the end.

    I hear you, they should of left him as CM. Theia puts out some pretty fail events.  In regards to hiring a "professional" this must be where the donation funds will be going...image

    So they need a "professional" when there's not much left to manage?  There's more activity on the MO forums regarding other games, than their own.

    I can second that Theia should have been left as CM considering feedback on his events. But I guess he is only one interested in doing that job.

    Bottom of the barrel.

    I'm with the both of you, makes no sense and shows how out of touch SV is with its community. Funds should not be going to a professional CM when they obviously need folks who can actually program.

    Actually from what I have been told the new "professional" CM is just another PT volunteer. Lets wait for the announcement and see who is right.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    Given Starvaults history of "name shell game", we may never know. 

     

    How many CMs will this one make? 6

    I am inclined to want to just post a GIANT LOL in the biggest Font/Text size availible... But I guess that would be considered Trolling.

    So, can I ask you ROHN which events Theia had previously run which were "good" (in your opinion, of coarse)

    Also, I really dont understand why Henrick doesnt manage his community. He is busy all day doing...What, exactly???? TheGAME needs fixed far worse than the community censored...er...managed. But the prioroty (as always) is backwords.

    Well, tbh one can still be professional (skillwise) and volunteer for something.

    Not entirely sure why a "professional" would volunteer for a game they supposedly didn't like and doesnt play. image

     

    "-Unfortunately I don't know much about Mortal Online. I like many, tried it out very early at it's release and/or played a trial and just couldn't get into it right away. That doesn't mean I stopped hoping for the best, and keeping tabs on the game and it's progress."

    -Without having read the whole linked thread- Are we certain SV didnt pull the 'ol switcharoo? Just give an existing GM/CM another name and pretend its someone new when in fact it isnt?

    EDIT: They have done this before IMHO and they have the integrity of the Russian Mafia.

    That would make more sense than this guy just volunteering for a game he knows nothing about.

    Quite strange...

     

     My official title at my job-job is UI director/Producer/Community Manager/QA/Content and Design so on and so forth.. why the long title? Well we are a small developer company much like MO is.. so I know how things work with restrictions. I am here on a voluntary basis like many of the other support branches.

     

    So he works his day job as a UI director/Producer/CM/QA at a small developer, but then wants to volunteer his time as a CM for a game he doesn't play?   Strange as that may sound, I honestly do think he is a new person because nobody else on the Sv staff (and certainly not the big fans) would refer to the game as he does in the quote below:

     

    There will always be significant strife with a game riddled with bugs.

     

    I gave the last guy (Theia) a chance, but he ruined his credibility on these very forums with his promises of Veteran Rewards being all ready to go a year ago (and he even said he was staking his credibility on it).  If this guy keeps on with the honest talk and stays away from the misleading statements and outright lies of the past group.. maybe he will fare better.  It will be interesting to watch.

    Maybe they are trying to give the impression that THIS (new) CM is more "open". Admitting that MO is full of bugs is likesaying that the Sky is usually Blue-

    IDK- Just doesnt add up to me why someone with a job would then volenteer to CM a game he knows little about (but does make it seem as if he sdoes not have "connections" and "friendships" with the playerbase)

    Kind of like "Look at me, I admitted there are bugs and I am impartial since I have not played this game.

    IDK- Conspiracy? Yes...But stranger things have happened.

    Ultimately does it really matter who this months mouth piece is, CM after  CM and MO is still the same.

    It's surprising that a shit game remains shit? No... this is MO nature, no surprise anywhere, no matter who is the mouthpiece.

    Well, that's probably 1/4 of their entire playerbase after all.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    They didn't change policy but said that the amount of hacking involved was not enough to alter the result of honest work of other players. To me, it seems a fair decision and not a policy change; whether that was true or not is another topic.
