    Staff Handle Name?
    Nubius


    What is your position on the Legends Staff?
    I am the Galactic Senate Liaison and a member of the Quality Assurance team.

    What do you do for the project SWG Legends?
    As Senate Liaison, I oversee all aspects of the Galactic Senate Program and work directly with the Senators to ensure they have everything they need to do their important work on behalf of the SWG Legends community.

    As a member of the Quality Assurance team I work with the other QAs and the CSR Team to verify bugs and broken code within the game. I also help test game updates before they are released particular in the areas of space and quest content. Occasionally i help out with some small development tasks, mainly focusing on concept design for future content and updates.



    How did you come to possess these skills, education or self taught?
    When I left school I got the opportunity to work for Microsoft as an Active Directory design specialist which I did for several years, designing end-user network environments for businesses. I learnt pretty quickly my aptitude for coding was pretty non-existent but i was very good with big picture concepts and coming up with creative ideas for problems. After 10 years in the IT industry I moved into business management with an emphasis on using IT to improve business productivity and solve operational problems within organisations. I eventually moved out of IT to my current role is a General Manager running the day-to-day operations of a national residential property management company in the UK.

    Describe your typical day supporting Legends.
    I am one of these people that cannot ever be out of the loop so I have Discord running on pretty much every device I own or work on toi make sure i don’t miss anything during the day! When I get home in the evenings I usually hop onto Discord and check the staff channels for any new issues I need to be aware of and then usually answer whatever DMs I have had during the day. Then I will put on my padded armour, boxing gloves and safety helmet and jump into the Senate Discord Channel…!

    The bulk of my work for Legends is centered around the Senate so I spend probably 70% of my week attending to the Senators needs, sorting out senate resolutions, preparing minutes and meeting agendas, organising ingame testing when we need the Senators help and just generally being available for whatever it is they need in their role as Senators.

    What do you think your greatest contribution has been to Legends?
    The Galactic Senate program - it wasn’t my idea as I wasn’t on staff back then but I was one of the original Senators in the first senate representing player cities - it soon became obvious the whole senate program was pointless in its current form and would never achieve anything with the bloated number of senators all with their individual specialisations fighting with each other to get development time. It was also clear the majority of the staff at the time weren’t interested in the Senate so there was little staff support. I joined staff with the expressed intent of revamping the whole thing so that it could realise its potential and make a meaningful contribution to Legends.

    What would the other staff at Legends say to this; “Describe Nubius.”

    They would say I have an unhealthy obsession with the Player City system and and even bigger obsession with fixing it!

    What they actually said:

    “‘I love democracy.’ Literally, with his role handling the senate, I don't think anyone else could do it. “ -JarekCyphus

    “The Senate has been a part of the team for a while, he may have changed titles a few times but he's currently overseeing our senator program - which is super cool btw. The Senate takes good care of the senators. Did I mention Nubius is The Senate?” -Elour

    “Nubius is a blunt and straightforward person who wrangles together and makes the senators work together to help produce ideas for QoL changes that are much needed to the game.” -Calarian (Former Staff)

    “Fair but wont take anyone's bulls***” -Wildcardwilson

    “I'd describe him as hard working, fair and a heart of gold! his commitment to making this server the server of choice is appreciated and highly noticed!” -Shrick

    "As a man who deals with the senate, he shows immense patience, we need patient men in this community" -Damo

    “The man has remarkable skills in keeping it all together.” -Atheenah





    What has been the most difficult thing you’ve done supporting Legends?
    The most difficult thing I have done whilst supporting Legends is definitely leaving the CSR team. I loved being a CSR and really enjoyed interacting with the players and helping solve their problems but when I took on the Senate Liaison role it very quickly took over the majority of my time and I needed to cut back on my other staff responsibilities which meant switching teams to Quality Assurance.

    How often do you actually get to play SWG?
    I usually manage about an hour a day weekdays which mainly involves checking on my guild and player city and dealing with any urgents in-game requests from members. I usually get more at the weekends but it does depend greatly on what my staff workload is like from week to week.

    What is your favorite thing to do in game?
    Ingame I am the Leader of Unity Guild and the Mayor of New Prometheus on Naboo. I have been leader of Unity now for 12 years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I get my enjoyment ingame from being of service to my members and citizens so I tend to sit in City Hall a lot so everyone knows where I am keeping my two Nunas, Wibbles and Wobbles, company. I still identify my main profession as Politician with some jedi lightsaber swinging on the side.

    When I am not needed at home in New Prometheus, I am most at home in space in my ARC-170.



    When did you start playing SWG, and describe that experience?
    I am a Day 1 player, I hail from the time when there were no player city shuttles, no vehicles or mounts, just your own legs. Getting from Mos Eisley to Jabba’s Palace was basically setting the direction, hitting autorun and going for a coffee, all the time hoping you didn’t get eaten by a krayt enroute. From the first day I was captivated by the game and its potential but when they added player cities i became a true addict. I know on Live my average playtime per day was often exceeding 8 hours a day, sometimes longer!


    * Nubius has been recently promoted to QA Team Lead after he had answered these questions. Congratulations Nubius!

    Great interview and thanks for everything you do! My playtime is pretty limited due to RL issues except on the weekends. Managing my city of 100 citizens is sometimes a full-time job for me so I can't imagine doing it on the scale that you do. My hat's off to you Sir!
