@jetlagjag: You were right. Why didn't you think he would last long?
Huh. When he first joined on, I silently said to myself "He won't last long..."
Guess I was right. Wonder what happened?
Wow Nexon is really trying to nuke themselves.
If anyone has any questions regarding his departure, please let one of the mods or B know. B has arranged an email interview with Michael, so if anyone had anything specific they wanted to ask, he might have an answer.
That is even more sad..
nexon is about as stupid as red 5 studios. who would want to work for those cash grabbing idiots?
@sanjupm: It really does. I don't quite see why they would fire their only CM a week before what could be argued as the biggest patch this game as seen. Hopefully they can get their crap together otherwise it'll be hell
@xylyls: I do agree though, that he put himself across many platforms to help the community out, and as a actual player of the game himself. It just sucks that that decision was made.
@sanjupm: well I didn't mean to state you didn't say such, but it just seems so out of his character for him to do something that would warrant him being terminated. I wouldn't put it past Nexon to fire someone because they were costing the company money via giving compensation for people that actually deserve it
To be fired right on the spot without giving 1-2 weeks notice suggests according to Nexon he did something serious.
But really, this is going to be such bad PR for Nexon.
What would the internet be without layers upon layers of pure speculation?
@xylyls: When did I ever say he WASN'T fired?
>No one knows the true reason of his departure OTHER than the words he said which was it was not HIS decision to leave<
he probably was fired I'm not saying he wasn't, but the reason for that no one knows other than himself, and Nexon employers. Everything else is rumors at this point.
@sanjupm: well what else could it be? Just yesterday he was forwarding ticket information to his superiors trying to help people out and now he's not employed? He was most definitely fired.
he didn't want to leave. he was fired :O
@sanjupm: That's cool. People try to make sense of it because they haven't been given a straight and believable answer, and so you get to have a look into how they view Nexon; and some of the things they say actually make sense, though most of them are going to be wrong. Unsurprisingly, people have a negative view, and for many the CM is really the only positive thing they know of coming from the organization. Personally, that's also how I view Nexon, so I stay away from their games.
@wellness: Sorry that wasn't and attack on you haha came off that way reading it back But yeah I see a lot of stories on the official forum as well, its mind boggling what some people say or come up with ..
@sanjupm: Yeah, I was just responding to the possibility. I could see it happening that way.
@wellness: no..no one here knows the true story its just all blatant lies and rumors, he knows just as much as the next guy..No one knows the true reason of his departure OTHER than the words he said which was it was not HIS decision to leave. so listening to these bs rumors is only gonna make people run in circles lol
@rachelll: It's almost as if Nexon's a bad company to work for
Can't wait to see the aftermath of having no CM for the biggest patch they've had in years.
@xylyls: Huh, that would be a sad conflict of interest, cause I guess Nexon was never interested in rewarding players for hard work, when I believe they should.
@wellness: People are saying he wasn't doing his job according to Nexon's standards. He was fighting for the community to get their compensation and such, while Nexon just wanted their PR person as the middle man to address issues while not directly getting involved in the problems.
@xylyls: That's unfortunate. He did a great job rallying the community around him. Maybe there were some things he could have done better, and I think it was his first time as a community manager, but he definitely could have improved with guidance from Nexon.
@krylonems: Maybe if Nexon Support did his job, CM wouldn't had to do it.
He posted on his twitter that it wasn't his choice. I wonder why they would fire their CM right before potentially the biggest patch this game has ever seen. That's asking for trouble...
@wall: Oh, was that going on?
Get real dude
Maybe if he did his job instead of acting like Nexon Support for reddit, he wouldn't be fired.
you know what this means right?
As a recently returning mapler this sounds bad. I've been back only a short time but I've seen KThx on reddit and MS forums generally doing a really good job. Wish them the best no doubt, but I wish we could hold on to someone like that a bit longer. At least through the holidays :c
His last words of employment was his IGN.
What's with CMs getting fired/threatened with being fired then quitting....
I'd guess stress between the frustrations of the players and the unwillingness/incoherent testing on nexonNA's part. Best of luck to him and whomever is planning on stepping on the landmine that is ms CM.
Is this also why the ms homepage has two redundant links/posts about marvel machine? One from a couple of days ago about the timing when marvel is available and another one that's shoved right in your face in a manner to say, "HEY DON'T FORGET TO SPEND MONEY ON MARVEL GUYS!"
Right before 5th job hits, right before the notorious winter/holiday season is upon us. Great timing to be between CMs. This is bloody brilliant. I can't wait for the inevitable crapstorms.
Someone posted on official forums regarding his account getting deleted and that post ended up getting deleted.
^ He didn't meet Nexon standards. Nexon only wants the worst-of-the-worst in terms of employees.
Anyone know details as to why ?
