John Smedley Steps Down as Daybreak CEO

Earlier tonight, GamesBeat broke the news that John Smedley has stepped down from his position as President and CEO of Daybreak Game Company. This move comes in the wake of recent DDoS attacks and the subsequent deletion of Smedley's social media accounts (most notably on Twitter and Reddit). According to Daybreak's spokesperson, Smedley will be "taking some time off from the company" before "transitioning to a different role to be determined."

To take up the reigns of President is COO Russell Shanks, who has been with the company since its inception. Continue reading after the jump for some personal commentary on this development from former PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matt Higby.

Time-Locked Expansion Servers Now Live

The Stormhold (PvE) and Deathtoll (PvP) TLE servers are now open for business! Players with All Access accounts can create new level 1 characters on either of these progression servers. Voting to unlock content occurs after 30 days, unless a server chooses to not progress at least three times, then the gaps between votes becomes 90 days.

So far the servers have been stable and flooded with players.

In the Stormhold and Deathtoll Marketplace is a free (per character) 16-slot bag. Since you start with a 4-slot bag, this is bound to be quite the help! There's also a special surprise zone awaiting to greet those who create characters on the TLE servers. Let's just say that it floats and gets attacked by a dragon.
