Overview: The care and planning you put into shutting down your game's community will directly affect the legacy of the game and that of your overall brand. In this presentation, Chloe will explain best practices that will ensure your community walks away feeling they've been treated with respect and gives them the best goodbye possible. Chloe will walk you through how to lay the groundwork with a solid schedule and messaging plan so that you and your community can part ways on good terms. That way, when you run into each other again, you can both feel good about it.
