So Long, and Thanks for All the Spectral Fish
Ghostcrawler confirmed the news on the official forums.

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.

    1. He doesn't make all the decisions by himself
    2. He doesn't hate healers
    3. You obviously just made an account to post on this.
    4. People like you are the reason why WoW is in a decline(of which I don't fully believe it is)

    Wasn't a fan of him since Wrath. I much preferred the design style of Tigole better. However, it is sad when someone you're so familiar with leaves. Good luck man! Hope the adventures treat you well!

    01 - He surely doesn't, but one less of those that made the game decline (in subs, quality, and more) for the past 4 years
    02 - Ok, I should rephrase that: BYE BYE PRIEST HATER!
    03 - I made an account to post on the topic of KJ vs LK the other day, although it's not of your business
    04 - People like me that have been playing for the past 9 years are not the reason WoW is in a decline, WoW is in a decline because of the decisions GC team made over the past 4-5 years, so NO don't blame it on me, cause I don't design anything!

    THANK GOD

    Here's hoping his replacement isn't as out of touch with the game/community as he was (which basically requires having played the game since WoTLK :P).

    But he just wrote he played holy priest. Why would he hate his own class, makes no sense.

    Sure, the guy who played a healer hated healers.

    [[BUT IM SURE HE WAS JUST SAYING HE PLAYED A HEALER AS COVER ON HIS WAY OUT TO PREVENT THE MOBS FROM GETTING HIM NOW THAT HES JUST A PRIVATE CITIZEN AGAIN]]

    I had my issues with some of GC's design logic but, as a healer main, I never had issues with his team's designs for healers. Well, ironically, except his liking of the Chakra mechanic.

    You do not hire a physician to fix your car or a landscaper to frame your house.

    In turn, you do not hire a marine biologist to lead design your video game.

    No matter how passionate he was about games, he just didn't have the skill set needed.


    Glad he's out.

    Gotta wonder, how big an offer would big enough to make you walk out of 'basically' head of WoW design.......

    All the people bashing him and blaming him while he announces he is leaving are a prime example of why WoW declined the way it did.
