Rokkumon, one of the most experienced Community Managers (Player Volunteer) in GameDP's Warflow, posted up a thread (Still seeking answers) in the WarFlow forum board, cursing the official and threatening to leave the position with anger.  Furthermore, a secret thread posted by Rokkumon but deleted by the official was recently unveiled as well.

According to the info provided by old community members, Rokkumon was an old hardcore player of EverDream games. He has been doing the CM job for more than 2 years starting from Dragon's Call, and now is the first CM in WarFlow. Many of the previous game events were held by him and he even wrote a few long unofficial backstories for Dragon's Call. But recently, Rukkumon was ultimately pissed off by some reason, and turned his back on this game and the official.

"Rokkumon was a pretty diligent and capable fellow. He did help us with pretty much work in the old Dragon's Call servers. But it's sad that he's kind of losing faith and starts complaining a lot recently. “Adam Wu, Marketing Officer of EverDream Studio, explained, “Although I'm not suggesting him stay in the CM position at this stage, I do hope he could find a better way out."

"He was active at first, but disappeared suddenly for nearly a week" Shelly, Chief Operating Officer of WarFlow project, said, "We cannot wait for him forever. We have to move on, there's still much work needed to be done."

The following thread content was wrote in a letter form by Rokkumon and pointed directly to the game official. It was deleted immediately after posted. But recently the whole thread was unveiled by some fast reacting players. Some vital problems were mentioned in this letter and fierce words were shown frequently as well.

To Official Staff

Since I've been told to stay away from DC even though I'm probably the most capable person there, is there any way I can just completely block out the DC sections of the forum so I don't have to look at them?

I mean seriously. If I'm going to be getting flack for picking up on their slack, then I should just be completely unable to access the DC forum.

Look at my post counts compared to every other active GH/CM.
Look at what I've done in the past.
Look at what I still continue to TRY to do.

Instead of taking your best asset and putting them on the near dead WarFlow, why not put your newest Community Manager, Destiny, on it in order to gain what skills she needs?

When I came back, it was in agreement that I would be the Community Manager of Dragon's Call. It just so happened Adam said I could ALSO be the CMgr of WarFlow. In essence, I would be a total Community Manager, and we'd appoint a new head of DC's staff and WF's staff to handle what I did, basically. Dest would be the 1st in command of DC and whoever did WF would do WF.

Instead, I was forcefully removed from the Dragon's Call Volunteer Staff and put on WarFlow. A game that has been nearly dead, full of complaints about how dead it is, and then even more ferocity coming from players now that a new server has already been released - do note how many times I stated WF's basically dead and every player on, what we now call, Server 1 will admit it.

I do understand the new server to be part of some sort of an agreement made in order for WF to even be obtained, but there is/was/will not be a need for a second server for a long time. There has been very little marketing done (while I see Dragon's Call is back on the main banner in Kongregate and do understand you can't advertise for WarFlow there because someone else already hosts the game there,) very little people even knew about it because GameDP kept it a secret basically up until launch, and not many people are interested because WarFlow's been offered for a while elsewhere from multiple locations/companies and is a clone of Batheo that just has an Asian theme instead of an Ancient Greek theme.

If you want to hold the fact that I resigned against me, that's fine with me. Considering how much the official staff fell off, what do you expect when even the GMs speak of wanting to quit because of how miserable and lax things are. It got to the point where my personal life became too much of an interference and also my personal interests were sabotaging my ability to perform. I was getting mad at volunteer staff for joining and quitting immediately or openly admitting they only do the job for the Dragon Stones or even just plain out not doing anything and pretending like they were. It got to the point that I too was taking out my personal vendettas on the users of GameDP services. I didn't care that I was held to a higher limit because quite frankly, the official staff never looked at it anyway. About 2-4 weeks of that went by, and I knew to do the right thing - step down from my position and pull myself together and perhaps return when GameDP also got their stuff together.

What do you know? We both did. Only we didn't both get back to the right path. Instead I was on the high road and bumped to the low road at the drop of a hat. Why? Not sure. Perhaps it's because in the 6+ months I was CM, I never talked to Adam Wu much and instead was better associated with Amber. When I came back, Amber had gotten married and was gone. I came back because Destiny and others noticed I was still interested in DC and doing things randomly to help out, but it was Destiny that really got me back in. Now, after all that's been said and done, I honestly feel betrayed. By Destiny and who ever made the decision to bump me to WF. I don't see why after all the hard work I put in for Dragon's Call and how I helped shaped it (rules, volunteer staff, and basically the way things ran day-to-day) why I'd get bumped to a nearly desolate zone. I also don't see why Destiny just let it happen. She knew why I came back and sat by idly (and probably cheering to herself) when the word came she was going to be CM of DC.

Personally, out of the people who helped me the most, I'd have to say it was absolutely Destiny Katiana, then Anita, then Kadaj&Psycho&Greg. Do I think that any of these individuals held things together when I was gone? No. Almost nothing got done. No one took control or charge of anything, ever. It was clear the Dragon's Call needed it's rightful Community Manager back, and eventually, it got what it needed. Then this whole spin-off happened.

I am asking for this: I don't want to be the "official Community Manager" of Dragon's Call, but I am respectfully requesting the power to still help there as if I were still a higher figure in the Volunteer Staff structure. I have always performed the position without bias, have only ever sided with those who were truly right in heated situations, and always excelled in ensuring that people were happy and satisfied (save the trolls) when they needed stuff handled that wasn't the "official staff's business". Not only do I think I deserve the right to still be able to do stuff for Dragon's Call, but I think I deserve everyone's respect and shouldn't have to put up with a micron of the bull I've had to considering I've proven I was here to help the game and returned to do my job again.

The numbers prove it. Look at the Post Ranks count. I have (prior to this post) 1429 posts. The nearest, active poster at the time of this writing? Psycho Killer with 713. DestinyKatiana only has 520. Do note I'm also the highest, non-Official Staff member in post count. Anita's a close second and would've maybe surpassed me if she hadn't quit after I did (until my return of course).

I'm the clearly the most active in handling situations within the community. I quit for 2 months, and still have twice as many posts as anyone else who's active.

Why hinder me to just WarFlow? It's not "popping" and won't be for a long time. I understand if it was busy, busy, then maybe I could just focus on it. I just don't think Dragon's Call is better of without me.

**************** I am personally locking this thread because it's no one else's business to chime in. Official Staff can respond here in this thread or contact me on MSN or through email @*************

*** I also posted this here to ensure only the Official Staff members who matter in the matter can see it, and I know for a fact without having to send it out to a bunch of different emails. ***
