Just wanted to jump in and say my little part... which is that I too am going to be backing away from the forums somewhat.
As my title says I'm the head of the Live Ops team, which means on top of managing Community and Support, I do a lot of work on the scheduling, organizing and designing for upcoming content (such as kingdoms, events, troop balances and new troops).
However as Sirrian said we will both still be around (after all I like the tradition of changing my avatar to show upcoming kingdoms). We're also discussing other ways for us to reach out and interact with you guys that are more exciting than forums! More on that soon!
