As the name of the thread implies, I did it. On my resume I've written that I've helped balancing EiR to an extent quote on quote "I wasn't exactly a balance lead, but I've been indirectly helping out with finding bugs and exploits". I've also written down a few CoH2 mods and the fact that I'm decent with story writing as a DM.

HR: "So u weren't working as a game designer before, correct?"
Me: "No, but I have plenty of experience with finding exploits, balancing and storywritting, all being the job of a decent game designer."
HR: "This is not wrong, but are you sure you'd be up for a job, this is mostly WW2 and Fantasy centered game designer experience and we're making [blank]."
Me: "Yes, I'm sure, if you want to you can ask (already gave them a link to every mod listen) this person -> Volsky, that guy -> Ragnar (CoH2), preferably using PM's in the forums or in the discord (Gave them link to discord during the interview)".
HR: "OK. We have a lot of candidates, we'll be picking the best 2 that we want to work as a team (I've also noted that game design decisions in the modding experience were decided upon in a group discussion, so I had experience with this as well).

LITERALLY NEXT DAY I GET THE MAIL.

Yo, get in here, u got the job.

I cannot tell what I'm currently working on due to the privacy policies, but it's gonna be a simulator game. Afterwards it might be a WW2 game of my own design, similar in nature to Mud and Blood 2/3, but in modern standards.


Oh and btw, I'm thankful they didn't actually DM any of the people I gave links to, cause Jesus imagine if they asked literally anyone else in here but Volsky (they didn't contact him either).

Shouldn't have given them my details mate. Think you're getting a very awkward call tomorrow about the offer being rescinded.

J/k, congrats.

If not, then I wipe, then someone gets something they shouldn't, then it gets abused, then the shit hits the fan and then I ban shab.
