The forum post with the official news is going nuts over there... posts faster than the human eye can read!

Bracing for the "this is the first sign of fail" spam...

There has to be more than one person to leave/booted , before the begining "signs of fail" are there.

Otherwise there are many reasons possible.

Fail because a community manager quit? Oh noes, he can finally put his degree to good use at Burger King, I guess.

I hope this isn't in response to public feedback being more tempestuous of late, as I really doubt that is Sean's fault in any way.
More likely it's just down to community manager being a rather stressful and not-so-fun position at times - the turnover must be fairly rapid, I assume.

This happens all the time, he was just a glorified forum mod, Community Managers are a dime a dozen. I wish him luck in his future endeavorers but this will have zero impact on the game.

If anyone remembers the main CM for WoW quit just before the game launched...

Her name was Katricia, and she was the main voice for Blizzard on the beta forums. Yet her leaving did nothing to hurt the game.

While I'm respectful of the work of a community manager, I'd worry more about a game that lost its lead designer.

Or that hired Tiggs, so watch that space.

Tiggs is the only CM I've ever really liked. They could do much worse than to hire her.

Bioware are really showing they are NOT doing so well with MMO games. Warhammer has been left to rot (yes its now Bioware game) and SWOTOR is going the same way with the key players of the team leaving (you will hear from this later) because of poor managment.

Again - Bioware is starting off nicey by killing WAR in the first year of taking over. THats a great sign of things to come! NOT

Your beef is with Electronic Arts. They call the shots for Warhammer Online. The Bioware / Mythic moniker merely reflects the combining of the developer teams under EA's umbrella. Not only that, but none of the Bioware people were moved over to WAR, but some of the WAR team were moved over to SWTOR. WAR's problem is that it has a bare bones team with very little support from EA who are famous for dropping the ball on failing games, especially MMOs.

I hope it's because he was the one that recommended Jedi Wizard, and when BW realized how awful it was, they fired him. In other words, I blame Jedi Wizard.

imn the update he uses Soon with the tm this is a common use by WoW devs could this mean he's gone over to blizzard?

Every developer in the world uses the "soon(tm)" when asked how long before a fix or something will be out, and have been doing so since way before Blizzard/WoW.

So I'm hoping your post was /sarcasm and my detector was just malfunctioning.

Afaik, the word "soon(tm)" appeared first in the statements of Brad McQuaid. So it's trademark should belong to SOE now, I guess. 8=)
