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!
