Gonfreeces is a case in point. He was chosen from the community, he has no background in game design and based on his posts fails to understand the factors that designers need to consider. Plus, he is inherently biased.
Gonfreeces also has this venomous trait where he feels he is superior to others. This surfaced not long after he encountered sex on a regular occasion. The entire community watched this transformation and felt nothing but disdain for him. Since then his posts regularly serve to put down the players, insult the community and generally damage the goodwill of the game. Sadly, he fails to see that he does represent Alteil whether he is being paid or on contract or not.
It is for this reason that I believe the testing team should be reviewed in its entirety. Outspoken team members should be replaced with people that have more professionalism and more clue. Perhaps training could be provided to them. They should be given the understanding that they should maintain confidentiality (it is not their role to discuss Alteil business) and should be rewarded for their efforts. The team should be either completely unknown, or the processes should become completely public - it doesn't work in between.
Either way, Gon needs to be removed from the team - he costs Ateil more goodwill than he gains it. It would be bad business practice to keep him on. He even regularly speaks on behalf of Logress, then when called on it, he says he doesn't represent altiel - you can't do both. His pretentious ways do nothing to serve alteil in the long run.
Thanks for reading my opinion. I look forward to your responses.
