MMO-Champion - Ghostcrawler to leave Blizzard Entertainment
Ghostcrawler to leave Blizzard Entertainment
Ghostcrawler announced this morning on Facebook that he will be leaving Blizzard Entertainment to pursue a "great opportunity for something new and exciting". I don't usually share my opinions in news post, so there's a tweet with my full thoughts on the subject.

    I wondered why he didn't do the Conan O'Brien bit. I thought it was strange they had that other guy do it.

    I like how the people rejoicing in GC's departure can't articulate anything beyond trite, hashed meme posts.

    Durr, back like 6 years ago the game had more subs
    Must've been GC making it fall.
    Not that it's almost a decade old.

    And balance wasn't even really a thing back then.

    +Strength cloth? +Spirit guns? Why the hell not?

    Who says I'm "butthurt?"

    In fact I find a nice synergy in how the knee-jerk responses reflect their knee-jerk reactions to the team's design decisions. At least these people are consistent in their vapidness.


    The only people going to be "butthurt" are the ones that were desperately hoping that GC's departure, forced or otherwise, would return the game to some sort of non-remembered "Golden age."

    Memes are just an ass and lazy tool for display an "opinion".

    There are two kinds of people in these threads. Ones who will miss him and are sad to see him go and those that can't stand him and are happy he's leaving. You don't see the people happy he's leaving whining and bitching on every single page about the other group. Guess why that is.

    Got to admire someone who went out of their way to communicate with the utter cesspool that is the wow community.
    He was only one person, and never solely responsible for the decisions stupid people were so keen to make him a scapegoat for.

    I can't say I agreed with everything he said, but he played a major part I feel in getting the regular communications from the devs to the point where it is now.
    The information we see coming out is generally more informative than it has ever been.

    I for one wish him all the best.

    I didn't mention the game as a whole either. Keep trying.

    Shame. I liked the fella.

    He knew how to deal with the self-entitled know-it-all cocky vocal minority part of WoW community.

    My thoughts exactly. The fanboy tears though are a delicious bonus.

    You're a genius.

    Though I do agree with leveling having more challenge and taking longer than a couple days of an 18 month expansion.

    WOTLK and TBC had more subs
