So This post appears on the forums.
And the reaction becomes a threadnaught almost instantly. Even while it is being edited and the banhammer is out and swinging left right and center. Wow. If you defend her you are a proverbial ‘white knight’ . . .
And if you follow a lot of the links and accusations you will go deep into some questionable territory. Especially if you take the hearsay evidence of people who you KNOW play a game and metagame based on propaganda and lies at face value.
Couple of salient points to consider.
1) She is working as a DUST community rep, not Eve, so she is not here to violence your boats.
2) So she said bad things about Eve . . . you telling me she is the only one? Nobody else has said the community is vicious and the game has issues? No alliance has called it a bad game?
3) A community rep . . . well let’s look a a job ad for that from another company, Blizzard
The ideal community representative would be creative, self-motivated, conscientious, and detail-oriented, with superior spoken and written communication skills. This person would be able to consistently offer attentive, high-quality customer engagement in a fast-paced environment while working with multiple internal teams to complete high level projects. He or she would also be intimately familiar with game forum dynamics, social media platforms, and various online video game genres.
Extensive community management, forum moderation, or equivalent experience
Superior written and verbal communication skills
Strong customer service skills and a professional attitude
An exceptional understanding of major social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter)
Knowledge of Blizzard Entertainment franchises
Diligence to consistently follow up on open subjects and customer concerns
Able to consistently execute superb independent judgment, organize thoughts, and make decisions under time constraints and a full workload
A passion for video gaming and video gaming communities
Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite
Able to work late shifts, weekends, and holidays source
How much of that description do you figure she ticked?
4) Judge not by the Eve reactions, we are not the ones she was hired to deal with. Look at the same thread on the DUST forums, here.
Yeah, someone adept at social media. Passion for gaming. Maybe we are judging her for Eve when she is not meant for Eve. She is a DUST Bunny.
They seem fine with it so far . . .
This post is disjointed and rambling, now you know why I write in character more often than not.
