To Cryptic : I really wish you would stop posting that important employees are leaving. I can tell you think it is for respect and to give them a good wave on the way out. But I have seen at least 3 major design team "He Quit Threads" here. I am beginning to join the 'sinking ship' crowd sadly. Please tell me that STO is not going to be losing Rekhan or Dstahl next. Are you trying a new business model based on MT's and an All-Non-paid Intern Team?
1. It could be that his work consited of developing the game and getting it launched. Now that this has happened, he may be looking to go out and do that again somewhere else.
2. If Cryptic didn't post it, someone on one of the many videogame sites would have. So which looks worse for a company; being open and announcing that one of your devs is leaving the game, or having your playerbase find out on another site.
