with this troll comes the age-old adage that silence is deadly...
for his silence is only interrupted by occasional posts that contribute to the general paranoia which serves as a barricade to newer players.
When he does post something out of the blue, it will most often be some kind of rage-filled comment against the many changes that the Sins devs have not implemented in order to make the game better for all players. Use extreme caution when approaching him on these grounds.
He is shamelessly antisocial and will rebuff all attempts to fraternize with him with strange comments about his mods or just nothing at all...
In spite of his trollish behaviors, he has shown himself to be dedicated to his mods and to be coherent on that account, warranting him a tier two placement.
This troll has such a low placement because us Forumites have a soft spot in our hearts for him and we do not want to embrace the truth:
Yarlen is renowned for making promises void of any substance and for making vague references to incoming content for the game.
There is no denying his dedication to the forums, as it seems that he is the only developer who even reads what we write...
In spite of that, it is generally felt that he does this not out of some obligation to the community, but out of some demonic thirst for fresh ideas, which he promptly consumes, leaving vague promises in his wake.
Beware, if you see him in your threads, it is not because he is looking for fresh ideas to implement into the game, but because he is looking for newer players to drain the life force from.
Now we know why certain people have such brief stints on the forums:
Yarlen is on the hunt.
