Almost four(!) years ago, I joined the SWTOR Community team. It’s been an amazing ride and I’ve learned so much not only from my teammates (yes, even Musco ), but all of you. Your constant enthusiasm and passion for SWTOR has been a daily motivator for me. From Cantinas to livestreams, I’ve enjoyed meeting some of you and chatting about everything from string cheese to our favorite companions.

I would only give up these daily interactions with all of you for a truly great opportunity. I am happy to announce that I have been offered my dream job of becoming a writer at BioWare. This has been my career goal ever since I first loaded up Dragon Age: Origins. At the time, I was leaning more into comics, but that game literally changed my life – I switched career paths and have done everything in my power to reach this point. To say I am excited would be a great understatement! I’ve been over the moon since I was offered the position.

I’ll still be around – less in General Discussion and more in Story and Lore – but I will no longer be a member of the community team. I look forward to hearing your feedback when my work goes into the game. If you want to see some of my work, check out the Darth Marr and Theron Shan blogs we recently posted!

Thank you for a great four years! I’ll see y’all around.

Congratulations! Will your old job be phased out or will we be seeing a replacement?

That is truly amazing! As an aspiring writer I'm jealous, but as a fan of SWTOR I'm thrilled you'll be joining the writing team. I hope you create some fantastic new stories for us and I can't wait to see what you write up

That's fantastic news Courtney! Congratulations
Looking forward to seeing your work - in this game and hopefully in many others in the years to come.

Grats on becoming a writer. I think you was one of the better staff on the CM team though and with Pokkets recent departure the CM team is getting a bit thin. This is probably more of a question for Eric but will you guys be hiring someone new for the CM team to replace Courtney? (Is it true it will be Fridge SA? )
