We just came off of a great BlizzCon. We had so many different games to talk about, and we were thrilled at the reception of Warlords of Draenor. It was great to meet or reconnect with so many of you. I love BlizzCon dearly, which makes it so hard to tell you that this will be my last one, or at least my last one up on stage. An opportunity has come my way, and I have made the very tough decision to move on from Blizzard.

I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of this grand quest. I have said a hundred times that having passionate gamers, including the angry ones, is a far better place to be than having a community that doesn’t care. You all care. Like us, you want the game to be the best that it can be. So I ask you to keep on providing your feedback. I promise (and I rarely promise!) that the developers care very much about what you have to say.

I’ll be out there, and I can’t imagine it will be that hard to find me.

Hugs,
Ghostcrawler

P.S. No, you can’t have a pony. Or a moose. Or a mantis shrimp. Or a tardigrade. Or a crab. Keep trying though.

P.P.S. I play a Holy Priest.

    Seems like they understood it perfectly. Being a leader means being the one who supports the team and pushes them to get the most out of them, whether its through mentoring, empowering, helping to fix problems or just generally keeping up morale. A leader is always one in a team and never, ever above any other member of that team or the team as a whole.

    'Director' on the other hand is a completely different story; that's the guy with the vision who tends to make final decisions, but I haven't seen anything to suggest that the directorship for WoW is changing.

Literally one of the first rules they teach you as a chef, which is something that Chef Ramsay constantly says. While taste is a subjective thing, generally if something tastes decent to you, it won't taste awful to most people. Now with that logic, if you eat a lot of cookies...I'm sure you can tell a good cookie from a bad one. Now just because you don't like, say, oatmeal raisin doesn't mean that all oatmeal raisin cookies are disgusting. And that's important to understand. Which I totally do.

    Nothing I said implied that I thought I was "the best chef in the world" or rather, the best player in the world.

    I'm saying that as someone with experience actually playing video games, I think I know enough to start the ball rolling and add new fun elements to the game. Experience is everything.
    That's the thing. Experience isn't everything. Reinforcement principles (objective) play a much larger role in directing behavior than how "enjoyable" an experience is to any one person (subjective). That is a pretty important, and basic, item to understand.

    I hope and pray for the say boub publishes his farewell. He destroyed this once glorious website, and I can't wait for him to be gone.

    I find it more believable that he was fired and all the niceties are simply a cover up.
