Gigantic 12

Motiga, after having laid off a large portion of their staff, has suffered another departure as Community Manager Troy Hewitt left the company effective this past Friday. In a letter on the Gigantic Reddit page, Hewitt detailed his love for the company, the community, and his faith in Gigantic as a game and sites “reaching a phase in life that requires I move on to other opportunities” as the reason for the departure.

Let me be clear: I believe in Gigantic and I love this team. The reality is that I have reached a phase of my life that requires me to move in a new direction – a phase that brings new creative and professional challenges, and new opportunities for personal growth.

We wish Troy well on his new opportunities.

      I couldn’t even finish a match in paragon. It’s way too slow. At least smite feels “action-y” Playing paragon was like playing league but even slower and more ridiculous to understand.

      Sorry if free games that require brain power to play are so bad for you, paragon is a game that has a big population already and growing.The matches can be done in over 16 minutes each like i have done in a few games , depending ofc on you and your team.
      And i take it you mean your the brain dead one.

          What he says is true though, I don’t play it that much though it gets kinda boring for me after a while.
