Late-Night Reflections on our Gaming Community
(Edit: this was posted around 2 AM on Christmas Eve, on Twitter) As I sit at my desk listening to the cat snore... going over the gear the team's gotten set up for the release coming later tonight, I've been watching videos from community streamers like Korey and MsVyris.
This has been a crazy few years. One of the brightest spots has been seeing all of the community leaders and creators out there - the streamers, guild leaders, giveaway hosts, fan artists, etc. The time and effort you put in is a huge part of why our community is incredible.
One of the big topics of discussion in our team meetings the last few months is how we can continue shining a light on the people and groups helping make the game and community more fun for their fellow heroes. This is something we'll continue focusing in the next year.
For those of you who out there now, making videos, holding guild events or giveaways, creating art... thank you. You are Artix Entertainment. You're why we're here. I can't wait to see what we do together in 2022.
