    Greetings avatars! Exciting past week with the announcement of the change in company structure and also SOTACon. I have tons of stuff to talk about with players and I'm sure you have lots of questions. I'll be doing a stream from 1PM to 3PM central time today and I will try and summarize some of the key points afterwards in a post.

    Friday I will be making a long state of the union style post covering changes that already happened and changes I expect going forward. Lots of things will be remaining the same but a number of big changes in stuff coming in the not too distant future! While I wanted to get a big post out sooner, I also wanted to hear more feedback from players first and also assess how things we're received before making a big post.

    Bring some questions to the afternoon stream and get ready for a big wall of text on Friday!

    Maybe given the nature/importance of these two streams, there's no prize draws to be distracted by.

    Port sold SotA to EA on condition that they take Castleton too, and convert it into a museum/monument to all the studios they've devoured.

    I mean, you can eat all the popcorn you want, but you know he'll take all softball questions. There are plenty of no-laywer-compatible questions which could be asked.

    Please don't answer question only presented with bits. That sends wrong message.

    @Chris: Raid-groups, please! Aside from a set number in large party raid, consider allowing party leader's to "ally" with another party to avoid messy battles. Thanks! Looking forward to your State of the Union address.

    My humble suggestion, in light of current staffing and such.... Pick a few (or less) things and do them GREAT. Once these are top of line, move on to next on the list. Reserve one person for bug fixes and community. Everyone else focused on the few soon to be great systems. Everything else cept bugs should wait their turn. Spread too thin and you lose, a few great systems will draw and hold core support.
