I had seen that. It's quite sad to see him leave, but hopefully he moves on to great things.

I am really disappointed with how thew community is handling it. It just reminds me why i don't go to the forums anymore.

How are they handling it? I would've thought they loved him and miss him already?

This thread from Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/2ld9d0/enough_is_enough_staff_changes_are_routine_not/

And this post from Ben:
https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.c ... ngering/p1

kinda sum it up. Essentially not well. They all feel like Wingman was pushed out and it's all Sandi's fault and blah blah blah, misinformed rage etc. It's, as usual, a very vocal minority, and the rest of the community has been great and supportive about it, but the assholes will always be the loudest.

WoW, they're accusing Sandi? First time I've heard of this. But as you know I'm not reading the forums anymore. At least not those parts where these guys are. This is what happens when you are lenient with the forum users. You get a toxic community. I warned them many times about being too lenient before I left the forums in the summer of 2013. It was essentially Wingman and Ben who led the forums back then and both of them was advocating for the lenient way.

I've also said many times before that I couldn't have been a moderator myself, because if I had the power I'd banned thousands. On their first offense. I am not lenient ... :lol:

So...did anyone catch his livestream and find out what the game he's making is about?

I wish I did, I was busy moving desktops around to catch it. I did get the notification that he went live though.

And wow, just wow! It's always nice to have an affirmation of why I rarely venture into GC on the forums anymore. The shit that some people say confounds me sometimes!

I missed the livestream and I don't have many details, but what I hear is that it is a "Descent" (http://www.interplay.com/games/descent.php) - Style Shooter with a bit more attached to it. Like Resource Gathering for example... didn't read up on details yet.
