Early this morning Tramell Isaac better known to everyone as T-Ray announced that he will be leaving SOE to pursue a new opportunity. T-Ray is one of the most iconic members of the PlanetSide 1 and PlanetSide 2 teams. He announced that Bill Yeatts would be taking over his Art Director spot.
Introducing... Bill Yeatts as the new Art Director of Planetside2.
I've had a blast working with you guys all these many months. I will certainly miss you all. The good news is, you are in good hands. Bill was on the Ps2 team from start to ship so he is very well versed in what is and is not PlanetSide 2. He is running the show now and he may contradict so of the 'rules' I set in the past, but that is now his prerogative. Please, give my friend a warm welcome to the Player Studio community.
As for me, I will be moving on to another company. Thank you for all of your hard work. It's been a blast.

New Continent! Hossin:
“------//// Deputy Director’s Journal, June 26th, 2859 ////--------
With some unfortunate losses, our mission to Hossin was a success. As expected, the swamp was totally devoid of any humans; NC or otherwise. We experienced some unforeseen setbacks after helplessly watching our pilot transferred into a Galaxy that spawned- and instantly exploded- into the unkempt overgrowth of the swamp. Without the resources to recalibrate the spawn matrix for the terminals, I made the decision to proceed to our given location on foot. Unfortunately, the Vanu apparently left their entire stock of proximity mines at every chokepoint leading up to the manual override for the Rebirth network. With two of us down from stomping on proxy mines, EOD Hud was mandatory in loadouts until we got out of the place.
Early this morning it was announced that soon all ProSieben accounts will be able to migrate over to SOE Services.
As of today’s date (June 18, 2014), region locks have been lifted. New EU players wishing to register should do so via SOE hosted sites.
On or about July 1, 2014, we will offer PSG players the opportunity to migrate their existing accounts to SOE account management, in order to continue playing SOE games. All earned status, characters and in-game coin will transfer with the account.
