Well, at least it isn't another internal shakeup at WB/Turbine. Nice that he is moving on to a job with such a good fit!

re: Sapience is leaving!

I'll post a message from all of us before the forum gets too full to read, wishing him well.

This isn't the first time that the role of community leader has been handed off to someone new. I remember when Celestrata left. It took some time, but Sapience became every bit as amazing at supporting events. Hopefully Andy "Frelorn" Cataldo will be as enthusiastic in his support.

re: Sapience is leaving!

That was a bit of a shock!

Posted my mug to the thread, as I wasn't in Kira's pic and felt left out sad

I was just getting to know him too!

I am sure the new guy will be quite spiffing.

Thanks for doing that post Kiralynn. My respect for him has grown by leaps and bounds since joining the Players Council and I will sorely miss him.

Sorry about that. I've never managed to snap a pic with everyone in it. I wanted to grab something handy before the thread went 300 messages deep and we were lost in the noise.

Thanks for putting the official goodbye, Kira! I'll add my own voice to the chorus.

Kira I loved your post! Lilikate is probably behind the tall folks woffing down another pie :)

I always love seeing group kin screen shots.

re: Sapience is leaving!

Excellent post, Kira!

I may have said my peace on the forum thread there, but... I am sad that Rick Heaton is moving on. All the fighting he did for players like us...

How can I wish him anything but sunny skies and warm pies?

Honor and fun,
Dann

I replied to him via Twitter, sorry to see him go, but he's going for an excellent cause. Just wish the forum post had less trolls leaping in sad

Awwwwww... though he is going to a good cause. Our loss is their gain and what a gain it is.

re: Sapience is leaving!

I have a suggestion. Sapience said he would continue with the SHIELD runs. What if LMB gathers a mega-band to meet him at the end at the gates of Caras Galadhon, to sing just one song--like Auld Lang Syne? Currently Landroval is scheduled last (September 30th at 5PM) but he said he may accelerate the schedule.

I missed if he said this in the Twitch broadcast yesterday--is he going to have to relocate to Utah? That is where CMN is headquartered. I am quite certain he could do that job from his home in Boston. I know it involves lots of travel.

I think that's a fantastic idea, especially since we're the last server.

I believe what was said was that the runs would continue, not that Sapeince would run them. Perhaps I am wrong, but that is how I read it.
