"By looking at actual stats, actual progression, time spent playing, where, and to what extent, ... so yes, we absolutely are able to tell without a doubt that the plan we're enacting is actually what players playing the game want and need, and are not just listening to people on the forums."
Stats can be interpreted in about as many was as ghostcrawler attempts to justify his moronic ideas, not to mention you skew the stats by being in control of the data and molding it to your likeing. In reality when you say the above statement it has no worth or meaning, just pay attention to the stats that matter most to you, PROFIT cause its short lived, you slowly will break the community and continue to destroy the brand name. I wont buy Call of duty because Blizzard bought Infinity ward, your mouth and actions and stupidity costs your company more money then it gains. Everyone is just waiting and desires for someone to come along and make a game that actually pushes content out that the community desires. Anyone else Bored of beta testing since vanilla wow, "hotfix" HAHAHAH sometimes i wonder if some of the shit you put into this game was found in your trash bin with the emails of people messaging you telling you that your existence in blizzard hurts the game.
Being that i've seen this game from the start id say your "evolution" of concepts and ideas are as delusional as the Tea party/Evangelicals.... If this post is to hard... to bad it's time for someone to tell you how it is and not bullshit.
