Parting Ways!
« on: July 31, 2017, 06:27:48 PM »
Hello Mount & Bladers!

It is with mixed feelings that I’m writing to inform you of my decision to part ways with TaleWorlds after five years at the company. At the ripe young age of 20, I stepped into the office in Ankara as a Mount & Blade super-fan and began an incredible tenure, during which I learnt so much and met so many fantastic people. Now, at 25, I’ve decided to return to the United Kingdom, primarily to be closer to my friends and family. Though I’m still a Mount & Blade super-fan and always will be!

I’d like to thank the company for the faith they placed in me, hiring a 20 year old with no degree and no work experience! They have supported me tremendously and it has been an absolute privelege to work with so many talented and passionate people.

Thanks also to the forum moderation team, including the admins and everyone over the past five years. I really believe that I’ve helped to forge a better level of interaction with the company and I’m optimistic for the future of the forums and the wider community, of which I’ll remain a part!  :party:

Last, but certainly not least, I want to say thank you to the community. Being the face of the company hasn’t always been easy, but it has been a joy and an honour to represent such an incredible series in the public eye. I was an active member of the community years before I joined the company, and I believe having that perspective has benefitted both myself and the company over the past five years.

I’m leaving my community management responsibilities in the capable hands of my old friend Callum and our PR effors will be coordinated by close-friend of the company and long-term partner Antonio Santo (Jaleo PR). They already have some exciting things planned, so look forward to hearing more from them soon...  :fruity:

I wish all the luck in the world to my former colleagues in meeting everyone’s expectations with Bannerlord!

I am sorry you are leaving.

Your love of the game has shone through everything you have done and your efforts on behalf of the community have led to considerable improvements in many areas.

Best of luck with whatever you decide to do from now.

And what do you planning to do after this?

Ripperoni in pepperoni. Five years of experience ought to give you a nice edge on the market.

Antonio Santo (Jaleo PR).
First I've ever heard of them.
Honestly though, I don't think volunteering to fight in a war should be a merit in today's society.  :?
