    CM Haruki Community Team Team Drakensang Online

    Dear community of awesomeness,

    As some of you may know, tomorrow will be my last day on the Drakensang Online team as a global community manager. I am heading out for new adventures and rather satisfied with all the possibilities that I had during my year and a half on this awesome game. It kinda feels like a topical thing to say buuuut it has been quite a ride!

    Like always, a CM discovers and learns a lot on-the-go - you know, it's not an exact science since each game and community are a world in themselves. Truth be told, when I arrived I was a little bit overwhelmed by the level of engagement and knowledge that I saw over here. Also, it took forever to finally decide on a class to level up (Dragonknight, I choose you!) and to access the wild and wicked games of PvP. Now that I leave, I still suck hard on those battle arenas but in the meantime I have filled my bag with a lot of experiences and awesome lessons that I take with me - which is great and for that I am forever grateful. It seems I'll always carry a little piece of this community around with me. I like to think I have also left my imprint here, even if that's invisible to the eye or not immediately palpable.

    I would like to thank you all for your comments, discussions, memes and general charade on these boards and on social media as well - also for your engaged criticism. It's within the discussions of the people who care about this game that I've always gained insightful views about what matters to you and what's right for the game. With some exceptions (there are always exceptions that spoil the fun, ofc), I've felt overall respected here, healthy teased. Me and my mental health would like to thank you for that.

    As I say in the title: this is a farewell but this is also a hello. What does this mean? That the Drakensang Online team is getting soon a new CM on the front. It may take a little bit of time for him to fully get into the shoes and start directing the show but, believe me, you are left in good hands and he'll be your voice from now onward. He has already been warned about you (YES, YOU!!) and he's playing the game like nuts these days.

    You cannot hear how loud we speak in the office, or how annoying are we when we molest the whole team with our requests. So believe what you cannot hear, for a moment: the DSO CMs will always listen and fight for you.

    Until he joins, you should not see any big difference on how communication is served to you. Releases will keep on happening and you'll be fed with patchnotes, event guides, and other forms of raffles and entertainment through social media.

    Also, I'd like to send huge props to the admin team, who works endlessly with me for all of you - without them, this whole wonderful trip would not have been possible. Thanks, team of awesomeness, it has been quite the pleasure!!

    And thanks to the DSO Team, of course, for allowing this one to join the ranks, for all the trust and all the freedom given.

    So long, and thanks for all the [spam].

    Regards to all Dracanian heroes our there,
    CM Haruki

    We can only hope that the next CM will have a tenth of your good humor. Thanks for putting up with all the griping and sniping, and for returning a salve of sarcasm or sympathy as the situation merited.

    Good luck, Haruki.

    This actually makes me sad. I used to ignore all the DSO twitch streams for a while, but once I actually watched one that you were in, I started watching the rest. It wasn't just the typical information that might as well have been communicated through forum posts, but an enjoyable stream with good sense of humor and your good vibes.

    Good bye, Haruki. You certainly deserve to be part of a game in which the higher staff is competent and knows how to keep their community happy and satisfied, instead of whatever goes through BP's minds nowadays.
  7. So long, Haruki. It's been a pleasure working with you. All the best with your next project.

I have been in a similar situation like you (new "adventures") so i know its a hard thing to do.. I wish the best for you on your new adventures. Too bad that i can't spam you on the twitch streams :D.

    You've said there would be 1000 Draken on the MonHun event! o_O
    Anyway... Since you've managed to go thru this BP episode without losing your sanity (...or maybe you did...), I'm sure you'd be able to go thru anything else like a walk in the park.
