People are overreacting as usual. Like I said in the previous (now locked) thread, the changes on the list does not mean anything. The developers have the right to have their names removed from the list. It happens all the time. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

Perspective.

3 hours ago when I last posted in this thread about people getting fired from a company, this has turned into valve going under and others saying their PC gaming lives are over.

How daft does it get on these forums?

In case you hadn't noticed there is a world crisis with regard to the political and financial economies affecting countries all over the world. It's a global depression (modern name: recession) which has global effects beyond anything we have ever seen previously in history.

Some random people get fired and all the world is about to end. C'mon...get a flamin' grip will ya.

For all we know this could just be Valve doing a bit of house cleaning of staff who just were not working out there, as Gabe has said several times some people's work habits and needing a Manager etc just do not work at Valve.

The list Garry Newman tweeted from the differences in the People Section of Valve's website:
http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/02/13/va...rdware-mobile/
Quote:
  • Moby Francke, Half-Life 2 character designer and Team Fortress 2 art lead
  • Jason Holtman, director of business development for Steam and Steamworks
  • Keith Huggins, character animator and animator for Team Fortress 2 “Meet the” video series
  • Tom Leonard, software engineer for Half-Life 2 and Left 4 Dead
  • Realm Lovejoy, artist for Half-Life 2, Portal, and Left 4 Dead. She was also part of the original DigiPen-turned-Valve team that created Narbacular Drop, the inspiration for Portal
  • Marc Nagel, test lead for Half-Life, Counter-Strike, and patch updates
  • Bay Raitt, animator for Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal
  • Elan Ruskin, engine programmer for Left 4 Dead, Portal 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Matthew Russell, animator for Team Fortress 2 “Meet the” video series
Edit: Bay Raitt was also the lead of Source Filmaker...
Is it me, or they've 'laid' quite a number of Animators?

They laid of the guy who did pioneering facial animation for Gollum?? How do you reason the logic for that?

Realm Lovejoy? didn't she start work post HL2, and more in the episodic genre....I know they episodes are considered a part of HL2, but it's curious to see it categorized so.

This lot could start their own production company with ease.

Yup VALVe still has the element of unpredictability.

Oh, Valve is steering away from game development.

OMG Valve sold itself to EA!!!



I think Valve is in flux and not really sure what it wants to be anymore. They started as a gaming studio. Steam started as a autopatcher for Counterstrike and has grown into what is arguable the largest DD game provider out there. The 360/PS3 consoles came along and changed the playing field in a way that negatively effected PC gamering. MS losing focus on what it wants to be. The leading OS in the world or a mini Apple Corp. Alot going on. With no "boss" or supervisors at Valve there could be a rift between different views on where the company should go.
