Not sure if everyone has seen, but today is @JoeKGBX 'S last day as a Community Manager.
I don’t know how much thought people give around here, but Community Manager is easily one of the shittiest jobs in gaming. You constantly have a bullseye on your back and have to keep a straight face for the company whether you’re being adequately compensated (or not, in several cases), and try to keep things on your side.
I don’t know Joe personally but I have interacted with a lot of CM’s in my time, and while the split appears to be completely amicable , I feel like GBX is losing a quality member. Joe has been through bee nerfs, dlc problems, and TPS season pass issues, and has always remained positive, appreciative, and helpful to those in the community.
Having been part of a community where that was always a problem (no matter how much people put on rose tinted glasses [im looking at you, ■■■■■■■ blizzard]), Joe has always been… an amazingly reactive and wonderful member of GBX staff and I’m sad to see him go.
Thank you for the loot and the help, you magnificent bastard.
