I’m sorry you feel Savage Wilds received special treatment. However, that is false.
I can also state that your mod team (Moen) received documentation of my 1st Edition PDF before I even released it to the public. I never once received any inside information from Funcom on how to do maps. I simply did my own research which took me over a year. In fact, it was Rob who challenged me to bring the info to you (the public) under heavy correction.
The Savage Wilds’ story has been well documented, and you can hear and read it firsthand.
