Noticed a couple of things...

Clash of Clans has a thread on it's official forum of their CM starting back in May of 2017 by the name of Darian

Then I see Darian commented on that forum a week ago so to me it appears CM's for other SC products specifically Clash of Clans have a bit more longevity than CM's for BB...


Clash of Clans Community Manager Darian has been an asset to Supercell and CoC since he started posting to the forums, IMO. He has been active and shared the following insights about game development and perceptions about a game's life span. When there were controversial elements to a new update, he was there to explain why the game team did what they did.  He bridges the understanding between the players and the developers.

IMO, the CM who sets the gold standard is Nick who has been Hay Day's CM since the game was released in 2012.  The game may seem chillaxed, but we passionate players will gather our pitchforks and torches and go en mass to the HD subforum when we don't like a new update.  Nick, the professional that he is, has stood at the podium many times and answered our heated questions without losing his cool despite the verbal grenades thrown by us in his direction.

I took it for granted that all Supercell CMs are like Nick and Darian, but history has proven me wrong and I learned that each game team has its own culture and views their official Supercell forums differently. Team CoC and Team HD see the benefits of the forums as one of the channels to gather feedback. Team CR, Team BB, Team BS, and Team Rush Wars preferred Reddit.

Team BB wanted out of the SC forums and Drew chose to fall on the sword by posting that it was his decision to close the BB subforum. Drew, if you're reading this, I don't believe you because something as important as where and how to gather feedback should be made by the game team and not an individual.  What I don't know is if you agree to be the Fall Guy before or after you decided to become the CM for Team CR.

I agree and said it from the start...Drew was the fall guy. I dont believe that SC would leave that decision to a Cm that was barely in that position for a year.

A few weeks ago, I asked Nuno the following on the BB subreddit
"Since you are most active in the official BB Discord Channel, would you like me to download Discord and learn how to use the app so I may get news about BB? Will you consider sharing news in this subreddit?  I don't know if Team BB still considers it its official channel or did they move it to the official Discord Channel after they had relocated from the Supercell forums to here in 2018?"

Nuno replied,"...I'm glad you downloaded Boom Beach, we hope you'll stay for a long time - get ready to be in one of the best communities out there! If you want to keep up to date on all the news, I recommend you join our Discord channel (
