Even in the middle of a pandemic, the MMO industry manages to keep ramping up the news. Not only did Chronicles of Elyria give up and lay off all its staff with no whisper of the millions in crowdfunding players had chipped in, but we were able to re-confirm our earlier reporting that Guild Wars 2 had lost its Game Director, Mike Zadorojny, to Amazon five months ago – and ArenaNet still hasn’t told players.

If you’re bored, it’ll give you something fun to do and help you practice your skills. And if you’re busier than ever thanks to being on the front lines or suddenly becoming a teacher on top of your real job, then hey, bloggers will be producing more entertainment for when you do have downtime.

How can you have trust with your playerbase if you can’t be honest about who’s in charge? ArenaNet is awesome for how inclusive they are in terms of work force. It’s a shame they don’t mind negating that with active dishonesty.

i really dont see why companies need to tell us who leaving or not.
but they need to give permission if the dev want to share it
