    Indeed, that's now the second community manager R8 have had. He said it was his own decision. Anyway, let's not descend into speculation over reasons.

    Still no internal view right? Still off the game.

    How curious. One must wonder what exactly they're doing in there.

    I know you said not to descend into speculation... but I reckon R8 are out of money.

    They got less than 400 TPP signups. Let's be optimistic and say that everyone bought the TPP Gold pack, 13.99 GBP x 400 = ~ 5600 GBP. Some people probably only bought Bronze, some may have bought the 'E-Sports' pack, but that will do as an average.
    Their kickstarter earned 79,656 GBP.

    I'm not too sure how big the R8 Games team are, but that's not a terribly large amount of money to go around, especially since they've got licensed music & TDR involved.

    The pre-alpha release on Steam Early Access was more or less a final attempt to get some funding, and Varsh more or less said that circumstances forced as much.

    Varsh has (rightfully) bailed before **** hits the fan.

    You could be correct, but then again........ I know Varsh said he had moved into a new place to work for R8, and a lot of his gear was still at his old place a few hundred miles away.
    After re reading his explanation, I kind of get the feeling that there was a personal fallout between him and a other[s] over the weekend, what that was about I suspect we will never know, I'm guessing it was probably a combo of the frustration of moving abode and the tech problems he walked into and tried to sort that brought things to a head.......when he said, "I will not be returning to R8" made me think it was kind of personnel differences.

    Anyway, life goes on, I wish him all the best, he seems like a genuinely nice person.

    Still nothing over at the FF forum, some people are still having trouble accessing the new test tracks and there's nobody to help them :/

    I'm also getting concerned that there has been almost no activity on the forums from anyone for the last couple of days.

    WipEout will prevail. Just not through this.
