Fugen was already on Acclaim’s Closed Beta of 9Dragons in the Acclaim-Staff. Some very old 9Dragons veterans may recognize him. Those who don’t, may wonder about his join date:
He was already then on the side of TheHermit, to lead The Land. But he didn’t stay for long. He left 9Dragons, like TheHermit did after.
After TheHermit’s comeback, where he was so praised big from the veterans, it was just a matter of time, until Fugen would come back too. But not for long, and the veterans noticed, that Hermit isn’t the same again.
After BluFlash, the new Game Manager was TheHistorian. After TheHistorian, there was no one anymore on the list. That was the perfect time, to bring Fugen back to 9Dragons.
Josh Levitan, the man behind [GM]Fugen.
The name of the person behind [GM]Fugen is Josh Levitan. If you take a look into Josh Levitan’s entry on the Internet Movie Database, then you can see that he is not a nobody. In fact, he’s even better than Steven-Elliot “TheHermit” Altman. He was on the movie crews from movies like Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Land of the Dead, or the famous 300. Josh Levitan is a real life friend of Steven-Elliot Altman. And they know each other, of course, from Hollywood.
Josh Levitan got even his own website, http://www.joshlevitan.com/. Just as advice, don’t try to write him an E-Mail to his mail adress there… The adress will not be founded. On “About Josh” you can read the informations about the movies he helped on, which also correspond with the entry of Josh Levitan on the Internet Movie Database.
If you search on Facebook, you will find a profile with exactly the same picture as you saw on Josh Levitan’s website. And, what a surprise, he got Steven-Elliot Altman on his friendlist:
Steven-Elliot Altman, one of the 9Dragons leaders, made it sure that Josh Levitan will be the Game Manager. He took him to this position. No wonder that the players, especially the newer ones, started to wonder why a (for the players) unknown person can become so fast a Game Manager.
The new Game Manager, which acted also ingame as Game Master, started his new job pretty well. He started to attack the hackers and exploiters, he was a pretty good spammer-hunter, and he helped many players ingame. The players began to like him.
But then, the better times for 9Dragons didn’t come. Instead, it became worse. And the players started to ask questions. Not for long, and the most players saw, that he was not the helpful and nice leader, which they all wanted.
Josh Levitan may be good on movies, but he is not qualified to manage 9Dragons. Our last article showed: He can’t act and react professional (which is a no-go as a manager), he don’t know how to use the GM tool, and, what a few of our previous articles showed, he just want to earn money from the players, even if he unbalances the ingame economy and roles even more.
Many believe, he will destroy 9Dragons very soon. But better ask yourself: Is this the leader you want?

Just as Information:
Fugen informed me on facebook that he didn’t write “Josh Levitan”s comment here, so I deleted it. He also said, he will not post any comment on our blog.
He didn’t said if he really is gay or not, but that’s not what we want to talk about. Even if he is, it would be ok. We just want to talk about his work as Game Manager and Game Master.
Oh and by the way, he’s still not willed to talk with us about 9Dragons.
