    Sad times in the WildStar community today, as Troy "Aether" Hewitt publicly announces his resignation from Carbine Studios for personal reasons. We here at WSC have worked closely with Troy over the last few years and wish him nothing but good things for the future.

    Best of luck to him, dealing with family tragedies isn't easy as i sadly had to experience one too many times.

    Shame to see him go for several reasons, guild related as well.

    I'm not really the compassionate lovey-dovey mushy-stuff kind of person. In fact, I'm about as far from that as one could be while still having some humanity left.

    Hope everything works out for him anyway though.

    So sad to see you leave Troy but understand family must come first. You will always be family us even if your not with Carbine.

    Speaking on the phone with Troy yesterday, I know this wasn't an easy decision for him - but an important one. While he may be stepping down from this day-to-day at Carbine, he's no less one of the foundation stones that the WS community was built upon - and like Robeardo before him, he will be sorely missed (even if I'm not letting him off that easy - gonna chain him to his WSC account!)

    He's left mighty big (unicorn-studded) boots to fill! I'll see you out there, Troy - further hour long conversations in Olde English are still in your future!

    It's a shame that Troy won't see the launch from the inside. Here is to hoping we will get to play with him come launch :D

    You may not feel it Mr. Troy, but I'm giving you a big ol' bear hug with my mind right now.
    I wish you and your family well.

    I owe a lot to Troy, and I'll miss him deeply. He is most definitely one of the industry good guys.

    Thoughts and prayers be with you and your family. During times of hardship or plenty may we all find solace and support in community that you have helped build over these years. Good luck and godspeed to you in all your endeavors.

    Big shoes to fill indeed. I hope everything works out for you and pray the new guy is half as enthusiastic as you. Hope to see you in nexus one day though so I can farm you for leaving! ;) Cheers!

    However much we like to only see new additions to the Carbine team, we all know real life can interfere with even the most serious game life. Hope all turns out right in the future.
