To be part of any successful project can be a meaningful experience -- especially if you're there from the beginning and invest several years of your life into it. It's even more meaningful if the success of said project was in question when you joined the team... such as the case with Path of Exile's Community Manager Bex.

When Bex joined Grinding Gear Games, nothing was certain. In fact, a lot of people were convinced that their upcoming free-to-play ARPG Path of Exile wouldn't even make it out of development. In the end, they proved those people wrong. Not only did the game launch but it's been alive and healthy for four years, with the development team releasing six full expansions in that time.

And for four years, Bex has been a part of the team -- first in customer service and later as the community manger. So, it's no surprise that the game's CM would want to celebrate four years of success. To do that, they've published a (fairly lengthy) love letter to the game, dev team, and community that reflects on the game's development and their time with the team.

"I am extremely grateful to be part of this project. Not only do I personally love Path of Exile as a game, but being part of Grinding Gear Games has been one of the best things that has happened in my life. I am grateful to the team for allowing me to be one of you and I am grateful to the community for welcoming me and allowing me to be your advocate.

Being your Community Manager has completely changed the trajectory of my life. If you had told me several years ago that this was in store for me, I would have laughed and said you were mean for mocking me. My role here has constantly brought me both joy and challenge and every year has pushed me to be a better version of myself. I am humbled by this experience."

As noted, it's a long read, but if you're a fan of Path of Exile, it offers some unique insight into the game's development and how much of themselves the Grinding Gear Game's team put into it. You can read the whole thing on the Path of Exile site.
