Hello Sprite Messengers
After almost 5 years, I decided that I will conclude my adventure with Aeria / Gamigo and so from next monday I will not be the PM in charge of Grand Fantasia anymore.
As PMs, our job in mostly done behind the curtains, so to most of you this will be just "yea a guy we never met is leaving the boat, bye dude!"... apart from maybe few experienced players that might still remember me around as GM Morgoth or during the GF World Tournament.
I'm not type the of guy that likes to beat around the bush, I had incredible moments during my years here, but many disappointments as well. I'm a gamer myself (and I've played GF sooo much in the past years) and I've to admit that being on the other side is not as great as it might seem.
For how many projects we have been able to kick-off (The WT itself which was A LOT OF FUN, patches, bug fixing, the new classes names post... just to name few) there's at least double of the projects that got frozen or blocked due to reasons that are out of our hands. Or even project that we had to publish without being enthusiastic about them.
I know that sometimes we've been able to meet your needs, and sadly, more than few times we let you down... Every single time that happened, trust me, our gamer side was disappointed as much as you people.
I would like to thank you all for this amazing time. One of the things that I missed the most, since I became a PM, was to be in contact with you, my dear players and Game Sages. The amount of fun we had together during events in the past and the times we have been able to laugh and have fun together is something I will treasure forever
I'd like to give a special thanks to our Game Sages... past and current GSs... you have been GREAT! So many times you had to help the GMs and so many times you supported this community, I'm proud of you all and I've missed talking with you all so much!
It has been my greatest honor to be your GM first, then your PM and a fellow player in the past.
Mechium will take over the position and lead the project, he was my old Assistant few months ago, you might remember him. I can tell you that he is a passionate player and one of the most skilled colleagues I've ever had. There's so much stuff we have been working on and he will be able to deliver you and follow up!
Apart from him the whole team will stay the same:
- DarthBear our precise and skilled APM!
- GM Alikar the only GM that can be working on 4 different servers at the same time!
- GM Maddog one of our oldest and most expert team member
- GM Parex the king of memes, ruler of trolls and love
- GM Saya the lady of our team and a real ticket machine
- GM Tuorzel the nerdest of our team, our PvP expert!
Wish you all the very best, keep being awesome
PM Morgoth aka Massimo
