We cannot deny that Mordred is the face of Aftermath. If you, Mordred, could at least come by once in a while, you would make us all extremely happy.
That said, I am aware that the worst part of leadership is being the target of subjects' complaints, and being the highest in the hierarchy makes you their priority target. If not for Aftermath's sake, I think that learning to cope with that fact would be very useful for you, professionaly (not only for you, but for all of us). You were a lead designer, so I think you understand what I mean. This is just Level 2.
I won't lie and say I'm ok with whatever decision you make. But I do hope the best for you, as I am sure all of us do. And I am very thankful for having had you as king/admin/friend*/writer/loremaker for the last years.
*. Really, you were one of the very few who actually offered palpable help when Francesca got her death threats back in those days. I won't forget that.
When in doubt, listen to Yoda: "Don't let your emotions cloud you thoughts."
EDIT: heh, why do you think Obama's hairs are grey?
