He’s been quiet because…

markjacobsHe’s no longer with the company.

Theories anyone?

Fired for falling short of performance expectations with WAR?

Asked to resign because of his many verbal (some would say Bidden-ish) blunders?

Quit over being forced to push his product early?

Uncovering of a maligned secret identity?

In all sincerity, his presence has been noticeably gone, especially when the Hickman started giving the state of the game letters instead of Mr. Jacobs. To MJ, we wish you the best of luck, you were a person who was dedicated to this game, and I truly believe you wanted this to be the best it possibly could, and you did everything you thought best to make it so. May all your endeavors be fruitful, and your career be rewarding wherever it is you land.

Edit: Just wanted to give a quick update with some links to comments and links from other sites for anyone still interested. Rev. Dr.  J. Drescher gives his inside scoop. And a little bit of journalistic info-dishing can be found here at Massively. Lastly, and most important, the man himself is writing again.

    I’m going to go with Uncovering of a maligned secret identity with an added belonging to a secret society! But seriously I do feel bad for the way this has played out for Mark. He worked hard on Mythic and both DAoC and Warhammer I am sure played a large part of his life. I just felt he was never a ‘front man’ his public speaking never came across well to me and always had the impression that someone should have been editing his public front work. I wish him all the best in the future.

    I know this will undoubtly upset alot of people but all i can do is laugh at this … Mark is a liar and has no loyaties period its about time karma came and bit you in your ass… lets take a trip down memory lane…. does anyone here remember mythic-realms? you payed 10$ and got some really cool games then one day out of the blue after 10 years of thousands of dedicated players paying 10/month they just dropped the games completlley never gave anyone a legitimate answer until here http://www.warhammeralliance.com/forums/showthread.php?t=734&page=3 (also read page 4 of that forum also it finishes off ) they even said that those games would never make a comback… theres another lie the great Mark said…heres proof on that as well http://www.facebook.com/pages/Magestorm/31969290917 also let talk about when the devoted players gave mark and mythic another chance with trust and started playing DAOC ( Dark Age of Camalot) there was a rumor about what happened to mythic-realms.com happening to DAOC Mark and others replied by saing they were confident that it would stay strong…shortly after that tho they started working warcrapper online by the time my free 30 day trial was over i was lvl 40 ( max) with the best gear i could get that game was unreal tornament with rpg aspects and mythic turned their backs on their DEVOTED players on daoc for the next title in line…just like they did with mythic-realms for DAOC.. then when there was talk about mythic becomming EAgames lil bitch Mark basicly juabbered no comment no comment with basicly giving the hint that would never happen and just hearing the rumor was hillarious..want proof? read pages 1&2 of this forum http://www.warhammeralliance.com/forums/showthread.php?t=734 and lookie lookie…they became EA games bitch afterall…. And now that EA wants Mythic and Bioware to merge Mark gets his panties in a bunch and quits…all i can say is im glad this happend to a liar like Mark..after all those people who gave him their hard earned money time and time agian he turned his back on them and lied to them time and time agian he deserves to be jobless greed and misplaced loyalties is what caused all of this. Had mythic-realms stayed open and mythic made DAOC a sideline thing things probably would have turned out differently but as you can all see what made mythic what it was is no longer part of it ha ha ha
