Elcent’s main job is passing judgement and helping players in Battle Dawn, he does a pretty good job at it and we’ve had pretty much 0 complaints. (though he’s still training)
In SM he did score well in the poll and all that, but ultimately he (and other BD Admins) work at a very minimal salary (Elcent himself makes at most a small pizza in a month, in a really, really good month) to upkeep the game they love. BD has no fulltimers, we’re not that large, we need all the good staff we have.
We really can’t (and don’t) want our admins to be distracted by anything else, and SM was becoming a distraction for some of them.
The same happened to Josh about a year ago, if you remember. He used to sit around helping and trying to calm people down. but he ended up having to migrate to BD exclusively.
I also made a decision for myself for similar reasons about a year before that, you may have noticed I went from reading and replying to almost everything, to only sporadically getting involved.
