Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein is a twitch.tv streamer and former professional esports player. He began playing MMOs in 1999 as a 10 year old. Asheron’s Call by Turbine was the first world he felt completely immersed in… he had trouble enjoying regular life. He then tried Anarchy Online, Dark Age of Camelot, and many others, eventually becoming the highest rated player in World of Warcraft around age 20. Through an excited tweet, he brought together the twitch community to work on a project that would fill the void left by these online worlds. This is the result — Everland.
Rodney “Talbadar” Pare is a former Blizzcon World Champion who went on to work on World of Warcraft at Blizzard Entertainment. He rounds out the team with his design and project management skills on top of being a lifelong MMO and RPG player. Byron and Rodney were once teammates in World of Warcraft and they’re teaming up again to bring Everland to life.
