Nothing tells your player community that the transition to a new corporate structure will be totally fine like firing a pillar of community interaction, right? That was the collective reaction when beloved community manager Linda “Brasse” Carlson was hit by the layoffs at Daybreak Games back in February. But there’s good news for Brasse, as she’s been snapped up by Trion Worlds to serve as the new director of community relations at the company.
Trion CEO Scott Hartsman stated that the company couldn’t be happier to have her on board, a sentiment most EverQuest fans would be hard-pressed to disagree with. It’s good to see people affected by the changes landing back on their feet, especially when the person in question was well-loved by her communities; we can only hope and expect that the communities for RIFT, Defiance, ArcheAge, and Trove will be as welcoming.[Source: GamesIndustry.biz]
