EverQuest II Gets New Community Manager — Ry “Roshen” Schueller

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Live (SOE Live/Fan Faire), EQ2

Forgive us if we have whiplash, as for the third time this year, EverQuest II has been assigned a new community manager.

From Maggie “Luperza” Krohn on the EQ2 Forums:

Norrathians,

We’ve had a short but sweet journey together. Although I’ve been a player in this community for a long time, it’s been wonderful being your Community Manager for the last few months.

I am proud of the contributions we have made together in this community, and remain inspired by the passion you all bring to the game with your feedback. We created a new web show series, EverQuest II Insider, that has provided everyone with a sneak peek into the Development Team’s side of the world, and I only foresee it growing further with the love and care of Roshen.

Although he may be a troll at times, Roshen is a good chap, so please be kind and welcome him with open arms and /bows. He’s from a different version of Norrath, but I don’t think it’ll take him long to get familiar with our version, especially with the help of all of you wonderful people.

Feel free to keep in touch with me via Twitter or any of my other contact locations.

Thank you all for the great times and memories! I’ll miss you all!

Good hunting.

After the jump, Ry “Roshen” Schueller introduces himself on the EQ2 Forums

Greetings Norrathians,

Some of you may already be familiar with me from my work with the EverQuest community, and some articles I’ve written for EverQuest II over the years. I’m Ry Schueller, and many of you know me as “Roshen.” I’ve completed a number of quests that will let me unlock the title of Community Manager for EverQuest II after Luperza transitions into other things.

Did you come to SOE Live 2014? You may remember me better as:

roshen-communitymanager2

(I’m the shark. Not one of the more attractive individuals in the front here)

Instead of the traditional hellos, I’d mostly be interested to hear your feedback on what has been working for EverQuest II players, and what isn’t.

-Do you use Facebook or Twitter? If so, what are your favorite types of post that you’ve seen us share there this year?
-Do you watch EQ2 Insider? If so, what are your favorite parts of this show?
-Is there something awesome that you see other game teams doing with their community? If so, let me know so we can “borrow” ideas for EQ2 players.
-What else do you want to share with me?

I appreciate any time you can take to give me your feedback here (or via direct PM to me if you’re shy, or hit me up on Twitter@Roshen), and I’m looking forward to our adventure in Norrath together!

-Ry “Roshen” Schueller
EverQuest II Community Manager

I’m personally hoping that EQ2 Insider will continue forward as it’s been a huge step forward in visibility for EQ2 in SOE’s media channels. When asked about tomorrow’s episode, Maggie responded with:

I’ll still be hosting this week’s EQII Insider. Roshen will run things going forward.

Trackback from your site.

    Sort of expected that Luperza would move on to further her career soon. Sorry to see her go she has worked hard with a difficult community.

    Still four Community Managers in a year is not a good look.

      I see the changes as a reflection on the community, not the company. EQ2 Forums appears to be a stepping stone to more fulfilling jobs.

      Her talents working with the community were noticed. This means other companies check out our forums and probably critique the interactions.

      Curse’s benefit is our loss. Roshen looks to have a sense of humor. It will be fun to see the interaction with shark man.

    Best of luck to Maggie on her new gig (she recently tweeted that she’d been packing). She showed what a highly engaged EQ2 CM can do.

    Can’t say that I am surprised that she is leaving really. Thought it was kind of odd that the EQ2 CM was not present at any of the EQ2 Panels during SOE Live.

      She was kinda busy handling the Eq/EQ2 tournaments. She really shines as a presenter, videographer, host, interviewer, and livecaster. Frankly, her sitting in the background on a panel would be a waste.

    I wish her every success. Her talent and ability always shine through. I have paid almost no attention to Curse in the past but look forward with interest to checking it out in the near future.

    Never heard of whatever curse is, but it almost sounds like a demotion.

      Curse is one of the major esport sites and a major third party MMO add on site. This is a step up in viability and fame for her. I have no idea how the benefits or pay stack up, but I imagine they are comparable.

    I will certainly miss Luperza. She did more for the EQ2 community than any CM in a long time.

    I wish her much success at Curse.
