Let's be honest with ourselves for a moment: We MMO players are not the easiest bunch to manage in terms of community. We're moody, we're cantankerous, and we often want the game to be developed in seven different exclusive directions at once. So a member of a game's community team already has a hard road to walk. It's understandable that every so often a member of the team might just decide to snap and go out in a blaze of glory
But that's not to diminish the fine people who elevate community management to an art form. Final Fantasy XIV
has built a well-loved community team where none existed before, World of Warcraft
's community managers are viewed with a genial fondness by players, and
both Guild Wars
and Guild Wars 2
have always banked partly on the strength of their community involvement. So what game's community team is your personal favorite?
