Chris, RedAvacado was in the habit of posting quite frequently on this forums after he was promoted to EP. But not anymore. His last post which can be seen here:
http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?121340-Reg-server-gt-gt-gt-Alpha-Server/#6
was posted on Aug 13.

Now, what else happened on August 13th? Isn't that when Scott Hartsman came back to Trion as the new CEO and announced the shutdown of the San Diego studio? Maybe Scott told Chris to stay off the forums and work the team to get the DLC out? Maybe Scott fired Chris? To just stop posting is to encourage speculation. Talk to us man!

Let's just say you'll know more soon. :P

By the way, his last post was the 13th but not last active day on the forums. That'd be the 17th. :P

Sounds like you know something the rest of us plebs are not privy to. I'm jealous.

It's possible he's busy relocating? If he was at San Diego, it's very possible he has been taking the week to move himself (and family?) up to Redwood. It's a pretty long distance move (http://goo.gl/maps/nqV2D).

If it were ME, I wouldn't move my family from San Diego to Redwood Shores. They are both nice places to live but, the cost of homes is a LOT higher in San Mateo county than in San Diego county (I've lived in both counties).

Chris can commute (fly North on Monday, stay in a hotel, fly South on Friday) for a few weeks and get a better feel for his job prospects with Trion. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have contacts with the Rift side of Trion. He was on the EoN team before moving to Defiance.

Still no post from Chris since August 13. If he's working on Defiance it would be nice to here his views on the direction of the game. If, as I suspect he's no longer the EP, it would be nice to hear from the new person.

Maybe someone really wanted to eat some (red) guacamole?

If he were staying on as EP they would have said so by now. I think it's safe to assume he chose to stay in San Diego and TW is just waiting to hire the next EP and make an announcement then.

Woah... did you just bump your own thread... that was more than two weeks old?

You're made of braver stuff than me.

Not that I'm judging, or even commenting, or pretending to be who I am not...
Just making a statement to the effect that you did something I would not have done, as it is out of my character, that being a forum lurker... Yeah that's what I meant.

Edit: Well, that and N3gative stole my joke so...

I can certainly understand him wanting to stay in San Diego. It's a great place to live and there are lots of jobs there in game development. What I don't understand is the silence.

Yeah those Rooskies always did like the red. He is probably in a gulag. RIP.

We're both experienced businessmen, MacDeath. I'm willing to bet that we both fully understand the silence.

Oh, I know the MEANING of the silence. I just don't see how it's in Trion's interest

To be honest: it isn't.

Most likely hasn't made the transfer or is still in the process of deciding.

Lulz you're not used to it by now? Silence on important subjects seems to be protocol around here.
