“I really don’t wish to talk about how he passed away, that’s not exactly what this is all about,” Fatmooch said when asked if B’s death was connected to the current opioid crisis. “It took the entire faculty by surprise, perhaps even the entire community. It wasn’t a really noticeable epidemic in my region, only a tragic thing that occurs from time to time. His funeral has been that the definition of a celebration of life, I doubt I will ever go to such a pure funeral like that again.”
Seeing B get added to the For Honor game has sensed both surreal and reassuring, he explained. “With my original article I felt somewhat silly. I felt silly for paying tribute to him in my own way for reasons that For Honor Steel Credits just came to me out of the blue,” Fatmooch said. “I felt dumb posting about it expected it to be overlooked. Instead all of my feelings were supported by the community, they understood and wrote quite sweet DMs and remarks.” He never anticipated his memory for his buddy to wind up living on in the For Honor game he spent the last year with to help cope with his grief.
This is not the first time the For Honor staff has honored a participant in-For Honor game. Faris Khalifa, a 29-year-old who settled in the UK as an asylum seeker after fleeing the second Sudanese civil war in age 15, talked earlier this season about how playing For Honor with an internet acquaintance helped him deal with suicidal feelings. Pope and his staff monitored Khalifa down and encouraged him to the past E3 in Los Angeles, where he introduced them into the development team.
“When the For Honor developers who attended E3 must spend time together with Faris there, and get to know him, they all remarked how beautiful it was,” Pope explained. “Mainly because Faris is a truly inspiring and positive human being, but also party because for many For Honor game programmers the best that you can ever hope for would be to simply READ one of those stories, and not make the face-to-face connection in the actual world.”
