    Default What happened to Eladrin and MadFloyd?

    Haven't seen those guys around in forever.

    His last actual post was over a year ago on August 23, 2012

    In addition, PurpleFooz has put "Lead Designer" at the end of his most recent post, which I thought was a title that Eladrin claimed.

    Cue wild speculation!

    LinkedIn still shows them as employees of Turbine.

    Really? I thought they were Sheared...
    I would still like to see... Something that tests character versatility and player adaptability rather than character focus strength and quest knowledge.
    I play the quests for the content of the quests not just as an XP/min merry-go-round.
    Actual play experience is worth infinitely more than theorycrafting...

    Infinite Crisis happened to them. (Turbine's new MOBA game)

    Vargouille and Purplefooz took over, methinks.

    I actually met Eladrin at PAX Seattle a while back (Chronoscope pack/LotRO F2P release). Tolero and Fernando were there as well.

    He seemed like a real solid fella, someone you would enjoy having a beer and a chat with.

    In fact, the three of them were somewhat interested in good places to have a beer in Seattle, come to think of it...

    But anyways, it would be a shame if he really did move on to a different project.

    I like being able to put a face with a name.

    BTW Tolero was really cool, and I talked with her the most. It was like having my finger on the pulse of the game.

    Also, her hair was two colors, and she had hipster specs. You gotta love that.

    Fernando was too happy for me... I don't trust people that are happy all the time. People that happy are just asking to have something bad happen to them.

    Eladrin looked more like a logger than a game developer.... maybe he is on an extended fishing hiatus or something?

    They’re in a better place now.

    or…

    In the basement, with Colonel Mustard, and a candlestick.
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.

    Well my suspicions are that Mad Floyd and Eladrin no longer work on DDO. They might very well still work for Turbine, but on other games if they do.

    See, what here was, see, that MF started, uh, these like threads. Ya know, "Let's Talk" and, well, uh, the response was good man, real good. Actually, man, too good. Kind of messed him up good, see? And now, he just stares at walls man. He talks to himself man - like all crazy, see? Mutterin' under his breath ... and saying "Kobold still hate you" and stuff. Good dude, but dems da breaks.
