Ok, I'll do it.

The layoff hammer always crits. :mrgreen:


Still, if true, not good.

Don't see how a company can be so shortsighted however to promote a guy to Producer and then lay them off a few months later. Makes no sense.

Indeed. Seems very stupid to me.
And even more stupid laying off the head of the QA department (and the head of the Palantír preview program as well??)- which, let's face it, is something Turbine SORELY NEEDS and is (and has been) pretty much their biggest problem since the last couple of years, imo. :shock:

Does.... not.... compute.... >.<

WB strikes again.. They could've chosen some less competent class devs instead.

Sapience left a few months ago unrelated to layoffs, to do a job he was really keen on related to the Extra Life charity he's a big supprter of.
