Crowfall hires former CCP exec as new community manager

Crowfall continues to add experienced industry veterans to its team, as ArtCraft announced today that it has hired Valerie Massey to be the new director of community management.

Massey is CCP’s former senior director of public relations and communication and is enthused about the new project. “When it came to MMOs, I felt like the magician’s assistant who has seen the lady get sawed in half too many times. The magic was gone. But when I heard about the concept for Crowfall, I saw something unique on the horizon at last. I had to be a part of it,” she said.

With a week left in its crowdfunding campaign, Crowfall has climbed into the top 20 highest-funded video game projects on Kickstarter and is the most funded video game of the past year.

According to LinkedIn she has been out of things for years here and there, not exactly climbing the ladder. What goes?

Unless they drop the EK info real soon, I think people will be shocked at how many people reduce or drop their pledges.

Veldan ottermated The pvp ones just seem to be shouting it in your face instead of just not wanting you around or quietly thinking they’re better than everyone in the raid. There’s defiantly no shortage of douche bags in either game type.

A Dad Supreme paragonlostinspace Her job isn’t answering tickets and floating around in game unstucking players. Her actual job probably has very little interaction with fans at all. Her staff are the ones that would do all that.
I would imagine her job would become very boring and suffer from burn out if you work for people who no longer have that energy a new game has. That might be more what she was referring to. There’s always a lot more excitement involved with a new project over a 10 year old one.
