Red 5 Removes CEO Mark Kern

The Red 5 board of directors has voted Mark Kern out as CEO of the company he co-founded, reports Game Front, which may be part of the reorganization they announced a few months ago along with word they were re-working PvP in Firefall, their MMORPG. Kern is the former team lead for World of Warcraft, and was the last of the four Blizzard expatriates who co-founded Red 5 to leave the company, which is now owned by Chinese publisher The9, and word is he is out "effective immediately." GameFront has an internal mail on the topic says they "owe Mark a great deal of appreciation" for his work on the company and the game, for all that he has done to help build this company and to set the vision for an incredible new game" and that this is a "major change" to the company."

Keep forgetting I have a founder pass for this game. I need to get back into it to see what has changed. It was neat, just didn't have enough to grab me early on.

I paid to be a founder also and loved the game till they made a massive update, mostly for the worst. Completely reworked the skill trees to something that is very unintuitive, reset everyone's minerals they had mined, etc... Basically they wiped out all my progress. I get that it's a beta but there has to have been a better way to do things. After that I signed off and never came back.
