I read the last message left by the CEO of Supercell on their official website. I really liked three things:
- The CEO recognizes that luck is part of the equation, when we look for the reason of success of certain games
- The CEO recognizes publicly his mistakes, being a true leader and also a shield for his teams
- The CEO still has the mentality of “be bold, take risks” needed to start a project. Also if experts say that, at some point, you should go conservative.
I don’t know this guy, I have only met him once in a fair here in Barcelona years ago. I remind a simple person. That doesn’t make a complete judgement, but messages like this I believe that improve the industry.
Experts may say that Supercell YoY growth has been seriously going down in the last 3 years, but from the other side: the industry needs boldness, the industry needs humbleness and the industry needs honesty.
