The team which is behind Acclaim is David Perry team from Game Consultants. Video talents in the world…consultants, “bla bla, bla” (sing). The people who wants to help you manage or develop your game. I bet they have a big “portfolio” to show : “Ponystars”, “MyDivaDoll”,” RushFigthers”, “Rock Free”… “9dragons” anyone? Yes, they are behind any move that Acclaim does. The team :
David Perry – Founder and CEO
Rusel DeMaria – Assistant Director/Analyst
Susan Marshall – Executive Producer
Alison Beasley – Public Relations
Jill Sullivan – Producer
Stephanie Tipton – Associate Producer
Max Ehrman – Assistant Producer/QA
Todd Fay – Accounts Support
David DeWald – Community Management
Andre Clark – Assistant Game Designer
Michael Liebwein – Assistant Game Designer
Paul Lipscombe – Assistant Game Designer
Randel Reiss – Product Due Diligence
Brad Hartke – Finance Management
Fred Fierst – Legal Counsel
I will add Marks Howard.
David DeWald aka Historian try to advise others when he can’t even handle 9Dragons community. Let’s not forget Historian post on his blog. He said : you don’t need a destination, you have a journey. Serious ? Do you have have any idea what means to conduct a community ? What about $$$ for destination?
I think you have no idea, because you have no quality and no professional education to do it. What was Historian before coming to Acclaim and become community manager ? His curriculum vitae shows it :
He was a web developer to a HR company, IT web administrator, graphic designer and so on. Not even close to public relations or community manager. I have a question mark, base on his education. He wrote : ” EDUCATION : AUTODIDACT”. Afraid to show the studies? If there are some. I don’t see a university degree, a bachelor degree not even a minimum training on “community management” field. Because I work in same field, before I ask a company to advice my company on “gaming” for example, I would ask the CVs of all people who will be involve in the project.
Now we have to understand why Acclaim official team it is how it is. He is recruiting people inferior to his education. Why? Because he is afraid of competition and that some people actually will not be in agreement with him. Because of his inferior complex the measure of banning the author of this site was necessary. For the “low class” was consider a success but for “finest people” is consider a disaster. If you have an analytic sense you all know what I mean.
Because Historian can’t get enough of his IT “gadgets” , instead of reviewing a book on community management, he reviews a Mobile Messaging Device. Your Acclaim bosses know that you make a commercial to a non-Acclaim product ? Or you get it for free just to make the ad? If I would be Fried Fierst I would add that in your contract with Acclaim. Congratulation on Historian, instead of reading a book or take a training session on how to manage the community he bought a phone to manage it.
Back to Acclaim people, what I find interesting are the donations to political campaigns from Mark Howard and David Perry. Their political views are not the same. I know that in America companies makes lobby for certain ‘services’. It is well know the double game. People from same company enters in 2 different teams to ensure a better lobby.
250$ bucks…low, low.
I will be back for more…
