Overview: From AAA games to Twitch micro-communities and NFT game Discords: Community management has come far over the past decade, and the models by which communities engage are intensifying to our industry's detriment. Longtime Community Manager Kelsey Gamble tracks the evolution of communities from what she's learned working on everything from game retail community management to the launch of games like Fallout 76, then to what we're beginning to see in the world of NFT game communities. She explores them through the lens of community management theory, and discusses the red flags she's seen along the way that point to concerns for the future.
