Lord Jalekの退社

Kevin "Jalek" SaffelがOSI閉鎖に伴い退社する意向を告げた。

参照: UXO Stratics

Hello everyone, It is with great sadness I have also declined the offer from EA to move out to California. With both my family and my fiance’s family living in Texas, getting ready for a wedding and her sister about to have her first baby, there is no way we can move. Plus, we love Austin. We couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

I remember over 2 years ago when all we had was a prototype with the Dawn model running around throwing fireballs at orcs. I’ve watched this game from its infancy to what it is now and I wish I could be there when it hits the world. We have a great team here and I’ve enjoyed working with everyone.

It’s surreal watching everyone pack up their offices and saying their good-byes. I understand (and I hope everyone does) why this is a good business plan for EA. EA has been great throughout the whole process and their offers have been generous. I am also honored that they think of me as someone they want to be a part of their great company. It’s been a great 4 years working here at Origin. It’s truly been the best job I’ve ever had.

To the team: Good luck and hopefully we’ll get to work together again soon.

To Stratics: Thank you. Your enthusiasm and hard work have helped UX:O, the team and the fans more than you can imagine.

To the fans: Thank you. I’ve enjoyed discussing the game with you and hanging out with a lot of you at the San Francisco event.

Goodbye everyone, it’s been a great ride...

- Kevin “Jalek” Saffel

Life would be much easier if I had the source code...
