Farewell... again

Hello Racers!

It’s my sad duty to inform you all that after being your Community Manager for 4 years I am stepping down, this time on my own accord, from Racing Rivals and Carbonated Inc. In order to continue to learn and grow, I have decided to pursue opportunities in other regions of the globe. In other words, I’m moving out of California… for now.

It’s been my honor to serve as your bridge between you and the developers of Racing Rivals. We’ve been through many ups and downs, but at the end of the day, the strength of Rivals is it’s players and the passion of the community.

I’ve learned a lot being your Community Manager, and will bring that knowledge with me to continue to define the role of Community Managers in the Video Game biz… but I will also be passing my knowledge to who is taking over the role.

So while I’m sad to be leaving, I am happy to announce that I will be passing the torch to someone from the Rivals Community. He is someone who a lot of you know, and a lot of you respect as a voice for Racing Rivals. He’s going to add a lot of his player knowledge to the staff at Carbonated and will be a pretty important asset moving forward.

Prodigal Grim himself is now your new Racing Rivals Community Manager! He’s one of you! He understands your hopes and dreams and will do whatever he can to make sure your voices are heard and to provide you information from Carbonated from a player’s point of view.

So please welcome him and bug him… I mean hit him up with your questions, suggestions, hopes, dreams, desires, pet peeves, poetry, and cat pictures!

I believe that Grim and Carbonated have best interests of the game and you all in their hearts and their ideas are going to make Rivals awesome...er than it is. Just please give them time, mistakes will be made, lessons will be learned, but they are and will continue to work hard to bring you the great Racing Rivals experience you all deserve!

So long Racing Rivals, keep on racing!

Rich “Ryyst” Romasanta out!

    Adios amigo. May the force be with you.
    Yes I'm a jerk and proud of it.

    No, I don't like you. I don't have a reason you would comprehend.

    The beauty of working with community... different opinions and points of view, but alwaus good when you can work through and discuss things.

    I'm gonna miss this community. Hopefully where ever it is I end up, I'll be able to connect with them as well.

    Farewell Ryyst. Leak me the old Nitto Legends files before you leave, being the same building, the backups should be there somewhere? ;)

    Well...

    1. No longer the same building
    B) Nitto is owned by Cie and I believe was already shut down by the time glu acquired Cie Games.
    IV. I don't even think we still have all the files somewhere
    Fuschia) Carbonated only runs Racing Rivals for Glu, not any other titles (Even if Notto were also now owned by Glu)

    Oh fair enough. Wasn't aware that you folks moved to a different building. :p

    Anyway, I wish you the best in whatever the future holds! You were my favourite community admin of the last 4-5 years.

    Your efforts have been significant to the success of this game and the development of some of the best attributes that the game has. Your still on the hook as the spokesman who never answered my questions about Race the Devs, but I don't hold a grudge . . . much. You'll be missed. Grim's job will be doubly hard filling your role and trying to manage that in which he has served as a component. There aren't many great players that become good managers but we'll see.
