    Default What happened to Eladrin and MadFloyd?

    Haven't seen those guys around in forever.

    Eladrin
    Last post I can find for him is April 11, 2013
    (His profile is weird and doesn't show last activity.)

    MadFloyd
    Last Activity 02-04-2013 09:08 AM
    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!

    -Side note- These are the results I got using the forum search. We all know how wonky the forums are, so this info could be wrong. I doubt it, but it's possible.

    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.

    LinkedIn still shows them as employees of Turbine.

    Now excuse me while I wander off to arm myself with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and hunker down behind my Armored Beer Refrigerator, while I have the UFO's take control of the Congresional Wives with the help of the International Cocaine Smugglers and the Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow - btw, do you have change for 10 million population?

    They've been stuck in a wall and are waiting for a GM to respond.

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

    Vargouille and Purplefooz took over, methinks.

    Rumor has it they've been standing in one place near the bank in the harbor for days

    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.

    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 that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • One loot system to rule them all. (Including Cannith Crafting, and Named Loot.)
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Adjusting Challenge XP so that they're worth running more than once.

    Good devs were replaced by cheap devs.
