Post by: Wahn on May 21, 2009, 01:43:02 AM
Bruce 'Froech' Ferguson is gone (http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=451254), Brenlo takes over. (http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?start=0&topic_id=451264&#5027786)

...Interesting choise...

Oh yeah - and they announced a major proc nerf for GU52.

Wasn't Brenlo/Crosby a community manager for EQ1 many years ago?  That's a helluva step up.

He was the director of Global Community Relations for SOE before this so it looks more like a sideways step.

Forum guy to Producer? Hm.

Well, things are looking up for Grimwell!

Man I hope this Brenlo character doesn't fuck the goat, I really don't want to have to learn a new mmo.

Afaik his only works until now consist of producing spin.

He might be some design wunderkind hidden under a rock until now, but I wouldn't call him an obvious choise for the job.

Time will tell, I'm willing to wait and see the direction he's going to take the game.

Ok, I actually read the intro post. Wildly unqualified is the only phrase that comes to mind. When you go from community guy to a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT JOB FIELD, you might want to mention WHY it's a good idea.

Maybe next year they can mine the janitorial pool for candidates.

Wish Scott would come back :(

What role, if any, did Brenlo have with SWG?

The only change on the horizon that could get me off the EQ2 train is the fighter revamp if they screw it up. Tanking has to be fun, too!

I believe Brenlo did some of the community management after the NGE as I recognize his name, but I was only around for a month or so after the Beast Master update.

On a separate note, Kiara's avatar is adorable.
