Like no publisher would ever overhype their product... tv advertisement should have told everyone a lesson by now. . Consumers should know that you have to look past the sunshine and rainbows to get a grip how the game is going to be. If you did this part, the game came out exactly as it was promised in between the lines. A lot of people were bored and angry with Blizzard and wanted to have something which would not only hook themselves but also everyone they know only to backpaddle when it didn't. I actually do enjoy different views but people only complaining about how bad the game is because basically none of their friends is playing it... well there is nothing much to be said about. Self confidence isn't that strong anymore unfortunately.
We can stop this discussion if you don't mind.

The second source of negative backlash is the fact that BioWare moved on. They're not the same company that made Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights and KotOR, nor do they make the same type of games any more. Yet, as they didn't really inform their fans about this, it has created a schism in their own community. There are a lot of people who expect them to make games they no longer make, intermixed with people who have fully embraced the new BioWare. This makes for a volatile community, putting it lightly.
I knew he was gone. I posted that question here a few weeks ago and people told me he was just hiding from the public.
Holy s... they are dropping like flies in there, wonder if this will affect the Freemium model
Does not surprise me at all, all the responsibles will be gone sooner or later, they're probably too expensive and they failed to make the game a huge financial success. there is no reason to keep them.
His tweets so far have been pretty stern. He seems pretty adamant against F2P; I guess he took it badly (not that that's a bad thing, who wouldn't when you work so hard on a game) when they had to decide to go F2P.
He might not have liked it but Bioware as a whole were looking into that area for a while. I don't see the connection for him to leave as to what he was supposed to do wouldn't be affected that much?!
IMO i'm glad he's gone, specially after the mess he did with Revan's story
Not a big surprise considering how much of a flop TOR has been since release. Im still amazed to me how badly this game failed, they had all the tools (Bioware being arguably one of the best developers in the world) and one of the biggest franchises in Star Wars yet still managed to make so many mistakes, it's quite shocking really.

Really, really sad to see it go this way. I love the game but its hard to get behind it anymore. It got swallowed up in a negativity train fed by there own extremely stupid decisions and blunders and now we get to this. Every time I see a trailer or log in I think damn this IS a good game.. how the hell did they screw it up this badly.
I don't really see anything bad in people leaving BW. Now they can finally do what they belong to rather than creating subpair games.
Mists of Pandaria coming in September 25
While I shouldn't be surprised I still am. Major bummer.
