Nice! It seems to be a trend with these ex-ES people doing the AMAs. How do you know about these in advance like this?

I'd like to know too - I think he knew about it before Dave did.

Extracted credits list from Age of games, wrote a small scanning/comparison program, hacked the Reddit mail server and inserted program, set to forward any incoming or outgoing mail to me

Thanks Maffia and everyone - Dave just wrapped things up. Makes for a fun read even if you can't get your question answered at this point.

PS: I'm not at Relic anymore - could someone change my fancy custom title to BonusXP please? [Edit - Thank you!]

Oh wow, another ex-ES employee on these forums!!

Have you had any contact with Matt Pritchard? He also appeared out of nowhere on the AoE2 HeavenGames boards dropping some very subtle hints about AoK:HD and then dissapeared again.

Matt? No, but I'm sure he's working his magic where ever he happens to be.
