    Community Cast 2

    Community Cast 2

    The community is our lifeblood. And we wouldn't be a healthy company if we didn't check on our lifeblood, would we? Strange analogy aside, Community Cast 2, starring CM Katrine, alongside mods Felp and Duck, delves into what the community sentiment has been like since the CMs came on board and what noticeable changes have happened in the community spaces. After that, we answer some burning community questions! Packed episode top to bottom, so stick with it until the end.

    Community Management

    Community Management

    Our wonderful community managers have now been with Bright Star Studios for what feels like forever (in the absolute best possible way). It makes sense, then, that picking their brains about all things community would be a fantastic idea. On this episode of the cast, Thor and Katrine share their experiences steering the massive ship that is our community, tell fun stories of their time with us and give a glance at what they envision the community becoming in the future. All bases covered, really.

    Meet The Team - Christoffer Erlang, Operations Manager

    This will be very corny - we really care about our people here at Bright Star Studios. As Ember Sword grows in popularity and complexity, we need to make sure that the right people are filling the right positions and, perhaps more importantly, are taken care of. This is where our Operations Manager Chris comes in. Hear how his military background prepared him to be the best people person we could’ve possibly brought into the fold. Learn where he sees Bright Star going as a people-oriented company. And have a chuckle at his crippling Overwatch addiciton.

Scam City

After listening to every single one of these and getting super hyped for the first land sale, it gets totally botched, updates are sparse or they go radio silent, lock all discord channels, and then announce that all the single plots sold out in the first two hours when almost no one could buy. Great idea but TERRIBLE execution. I couldn’t be more disappointed in the entire project. Nothing like wasting tons of money in GAS fees to nothing out of it.
