    Wait, so who IS still around?

    At this point in time, a great amount of us community members are aware of the layoffs Kingsisle made to its staff two years ago. What I do want to ask is IF we can confirm the team members who are still around today besides One Eyed Jack (formerly) and Bat Masterson? We should have Ratbeard at least because he's usually the go-to "know it all" of Pirate101's game development, but again, this thread is to take a head count of current staff members if anyone does know. Thanks!

    I think blind new is still here, I've seen him post from time to time but not on his musing threads. Decious is too since he's the pet guy, and that's all I know.

    If I recall, Blind Mew IS one of the key writers on the team, right?

    @Ratbeard posted here on Central in June, and on the main boards in July. He's still around. Decius doesn't have a Central account, but he posts regularly on the main boards (even if cryptically) about pets.

    And Falmea, unless you are talking original Pirate101 team?

    Re: Wait, so who IS still around?

    actually what i heard was that most of the layoffs were from the cancellation of mobile games, don't think it had a big impact on the state of p101. p101 doesn't get updates because p101 doesn't bring in as much revenue as w101, that's why it doesn't get updates which is unfortunate...

    Correct (response too short, so I had to type this entire parenthesized phrase)

    Blind Mew is still around, but his name now shows up in mobile game credits (i.e. Everclicker).

    On top of that, I believe Mew has also been working on the W101 story for the past few years, or at least someone from the pirate side as the plot became less terrible
