    Hey guys, quick and very important question.

    I saw dfchad said on reddit that Kasmos is on the green team. If thats the case, I need some assurance that his suggestions are THOROUGHLY checked and thought out.

    He was one of those guys on forumfall that made shitty suggestions. This is a serious problem for me, if he is a big factor in the development. It scares me, seriously.

    Please reconsider his involvement with this project. Starting to have doubts about this team.

    I hope its just a hoax and he is not involved.

    Guys I'm pretty sure Kasmos is MWTaylor - Head of Marketing Strategy according to that staff list. Can anyone on the project confirm?

    On paper his "suggestions" weren't to shitty, but he can't seem to think ahead enough to realize how most things will play out in the game.

    Pretty much this.

    He comes up with ideas really quickly and most of them aren't well thought out. It makes me question how much he really played DFO. He did the same thing in UW, barely played the game but made all the suggestions in the world on how the game should be.

    Agreed on this as well. I think it's time to give New Dawn a look if this is the kind of leadership Kimoshu has on board.

    I know we were all assholes here and there in Darkfall but I would never want someone like Kasmos behind the scenes tinkering with this game or the marketing with his "great ideas."

    What Kilset said. The dude barely played the game. He didnt understand the meta of the game nor how the game really worked in general.

    If he stays at marketing position, i will be fine with that. Just please! please! please!, do not let him be a part of any kind of design decision making for this game.

    Nothing personal, Kasmos, but its personal.

    I cant speak for his game design, but Kasmos is our head of marketing strategy. He's an experienced marketing professional and has been a very important part of our planning to date.

    We have an unrivalled game design team made up of the most experienced Darkfall vets known by the majority of the community; Kasmos is not on the team to contribute to game design, this is for our designers.

    That being said, many of Kasmos' suggestions made for DFO over the years are on the roadmaps for both projects. I very much doubt you disagree with strictly his opinions. We're a community driven project; outside of our immediate design team, his words are equal to my own or anyone else in the community.

    We all have past personas and impressions of one another, but this is not forumfall, this is business and everybody here is working professionally; we are a better team for having his expertise.

    Okay, Hugo.

    You just need to understand that Kasmos, Signus and Xphier were all from the same "breed" so to speak. Sure, some suggestions could be good that they propose. But, the way they were on forumfall, they were ruining the game. It was a serious problem because devs actually listened to them.

    I know everyone has the same right of speech, but sometimes you need to cut some people off that constantly make bad suggestions. They swayed a lot of people certain way which changed devs minds which hurt the game.

    I trust you, Hugo and I know you have a good head on your shoulders, just be careful of him.

    I hope you are reading this, Kasmos. I am willing to give you a chance. Just stay away from game design plox for everyones good.

    He was a cool guy in game, but I recall him liking UW more than DFO. Which isn't a problem, just probably shouldn't be on this team if that's the case. We obviously don't want another UW.

    Thats not technically true, He was advocating UW only when UW was all we had and the population was rapidly dying off. Is it wrong for him to try and get more people playing the only version of darkfall that was available at the time?

    It is since DFO is coming back now and he was hating on features that were core to DFO. It's been a while, so I don't recall exactly what he said, I just remember our clan having a few debates with him in mumble.
