Firefall loses its senior systems designer

    
33

Last Thursday the Firefall community had to bid a sad farewell to David “Cloudchaser” Severs, the senior systems designer for Red 5 Studios. Severs announced that he was leaving the studio to take up an “exciting opportunity” at an undisclosed company.

“It’s been an amazing four years (give or take) that I’ve been around Firefall,” Severs said, “two as a player, and two as a designer working on a game I love, and these are memories that I’ll take with me and cherish. From now on, other designers will be taking point on the game’s systems, such as battleframes, weapons, abilities, crafting, perks, elite ranks, leveling, items, and content rewards. You’re in good hands.”

Severs came on board Red 5 in August 2014.

Yup, seems like doing it the pve way worked out well in the end. I’m glad you posted, otherwise I might have continued to think I was right.

As I said on WoW insider-that-was years ago. They act like warp nacelles, that is they bend time ans space around them…giving me the ability fly pretty much anywhere with little effort. <3

Talks a lot about the game. Says there will never be any more changes (not in a good way)

MorpayneRADIO So…open world pvp in a game that takes place in a world with only 30,000 humans left alive in a virtual post scarcity world with at least a billion now aliens and 6 billion zombies behind a cloud of sentient toxic gas.  Let’s stake a claim to our 1.2 acres of land out of the 1000 or so left for humanity and kill anyone who approaches.  Yeah, seems legit…

The more they update the game,the more they screw something up. The latest update has some cool things in it. But then they go and screw up with the elite ranks xp packs they gave out to the QQ vet.players complaining about the changes made and how they lost gear. So now you have  elitist vets.with over 100 elite ranks they didn’t earn at all refusing to team or even let new players in their guilds. The player base is so fractured now its not even worth playing anymore. And with the level 40 zones closed for some reason you get lousy white and green drops that are useless to you if your a new level 40. You want level 40 gear go buy red beans and keys from the store and open all the lock boxes that drop all over the place now. This game could have really been a good one. Now the community in it even sucks.

Im in the IT consulting recruitment industry and honestly I think consulting/contracts is the mindset those in the game Industry need to take. Consulting is very rewarding you pick up contracts and have the freedom to choose which projects you’ll take. If you are taleted you will make way more than a regular employee.Those that are good at what they do will always be in demand. The company gets the best specialized talent for each game they make and the consultants make bank. No hurt feelings at the end of the contract .If a company hires a guy who is an expert at sports games does that mean they need to keep him around for their next fps game etc etc.. Much better to talior your workforce based on specific expertise for each game.

Did he make that law, or was it stuck on to give said law a sense of irony? O.o
