I am Vectes, your new Community Manager, joining Octus and Dana.
I have been a fan of the Gears of War franchise since the first game. Gears made me buy a HDTV shortly after I got my Xbox 360. My favorite character is Dom – he is the kind of guy you would like to call a friend, I like his sense of humor, his strong loyalty to Marcus and Delta Squad, proven by his ultimate sacrifice.
I have been working in the games industry for 10 years across different games and publishers and it is an honor for me to be back at Microsoft, to finally step inside a game studio, and to work on one of my most favorite shooters of all time.
As far as Gears multiplayer goes, I am more of a Horde player than Versus – I like to play with my friends, talk about our day while shooting some AI in the face. Now don’t get me wrong, I do play Versus but I really need to get my K/D ratio up :)
So now that you know a bit more about me, the question that you all have: what is going to be my relationship with you?
As Octus mentioned in this thread
back in October last year, me joining the team is all about our commitment to increase the transparency and frequency of conversation with our fans. This is why I will be focusing on being out there among you as much as possible, whether that’s on the forums, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter or Mixer. I will be acting as a messenger between you and the dev team, so look for me.
But let’s be clear – I cannot give you River.
You will find me on the forums and Xbox Live as TC Vectes
and I will connect with you through the @CoalitionGears
Twitter account for all support issues. Octus and I will oversee the @GearsofWar
I will see you online.
