Trion Worlds brings Joe Brogno on as ArcheAge’s new community manager

There’s a new sheriff on ArcheAge’s forums, and his fearsome name is Muzzy.

Trion Worlds announced Joe Brogno, otherwise known as “Muzzy” to the studio’s community, was being transferred over from Atlas Reactor to ArcheAge as the fantasy MMO’s newest CM. Brogno won’t be replacing Seraphina Brennan, as she will remain as the game’s senior community manager.

The team revealed the shift in personnel on a Twitch livestream, which wasn’t exactly received with open arms by the community. On the forums, players expressed indignation over the new CM’s alleged ignorance about the basic concepts of the game and Trion’s decision to ignore pressing issues in favor of promoting some of its cash shop items. You can watch the stream after the break and decide for yourself.

Someone sent this Reddit post screenshot to a discord group I’m in.
Reading this, I am wondering if any serious questions that I may ask in the forums, will be met with similar trolling attempts by Trion CM. What happened here? First time I’ve ever seen a CM of any game respond this way.

I’ve asked a few serious (and some frivolous) questions in the group and haven’t had any issues with moderation. The forums aren’t that active, perhaps because with a relatively small player base, and such a wide net cast on social media, there’s less incentive for players to join the official forums. But I’ve always found it quite a friendly happy place and have no fear of posting.

Ah well, I didn’t mean just in the official forums. But also on reddit or wherever there is a discussion about AA.
Thank you for your response. That’s nice that the forum people are friendly. As a general rule, I don’t respond to troll posts at all. Very surprised to see that screenshot. Made me wonder if something extraordinary happened, which was why I asked :)

So much Cringe

The people over on reddit have affectionately started calling him Muzzle. His community management style appears to be a combination of ban and delete.

They were training him for a while. He’s nice but doesn’t know the games – though maybe he doesn’t need to, I dunno.

This isn’t necessarily good news for Atlas Reactor which makes me sad because it’s a fantastic game and one of Trion’s hidden lights. It needs a lot more support. But we wish Muzzy well.

Archeage stuff always reminds me of this Diesel Sweeties comic

Bring back our loveable corrupted CM, Sir ‘Scapes’ Longshanks! You know, the guy who was in on the Archeum shortage and Castle egg debacles for under the table payments from PvP guilds? Miss you Archeage!

One of the only games that people loved more in early access than after release.

Because the early access was a completely different game.
