Oh so the community somehow designed mobs so that they dont drop decent items but once a month? The community made WDs useless for the first few months of the game. The community made all the bugs and exploits that were used to give some people a huge advantage by letting acquire massive amounts of gold and items early on while the rest of us were left with nothing. Makes perfect sense.

Why the hell would you make that connection? Just because he has A and B on his Twitter doesn't mean A and B are linked, it just means that A and B exist. He's not playing some sort of mind game with you people, it's his personal account. Honestly you guys overinterpret every single thing these Blizzard people do.
Wilson was the lead designer on Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War. Maybe with THQ being broken down and auctioned off in separate pieces starting Jan 22nd, Blizzard could decide to branch out a bit and buy the Dawn of War IP?
My bigger question is why would you equate Warhammer with "new Warcraft RTS game?"
Wouldn't the more sensible reaction be, "They demoted him to designing boardgames?"
Or maybe just, "Hey he likes these two things that have similar aesthetics?"
Yea D3 was so much fun. Especially having an account that was flagged for bad loot. Playing 5-6 hours every day, sometimes 10-12, for vendor loot was awesome. Only got a single item since launch that was worth anything and was a socketed Chantodo I got 30 mil for. So obviously after the new legendary patch which means I didnt get a damn thing prior. I think my best streak is 3 weeks without listing a single item on the AH and thats playing at least 30 hours a week so not exactly casual. I watch streams of people that would get like 7-8 legendaries in a few hours and go WTF. I seriously think I maybe got around 15 since the game was released and they are getting that every 2-3 days? People always say accounts cant be flagged for bad loot but my track record for never getting drops and over 750 hours of playing proves you wrong. You call it RNG but after a while it stops being RNG and becomes "The loot system in the game is fucking broken"
Like seriously people? D3 is a good game ruined by the community?? Did you even play D3? especially at the start?? I dont car about patch 10.678 the game foundation is good but some design choices are just flat out retarted its one of the most unrewarding system ever you can farm for hours to no end and get nothing zilch nada, I have no idea how can you say its a good game seriously, maybe because its a Blizzard game??
That said Im sure Jay Wilson is a great RTS designer and someone said I doubt he was calling the shots on some controversial designs like AH and RMAH.
Starting with the very night of the release the D3 forums at Blizzard were simply terrible and never really got much better. That's long before Blizzard's lack of communication became apparent or even much before issues with Inferno and the rest became very clear.
I'm not saying there wasn't quite a bit wrong with D3 at release, there clearly was and still is although playing without using either of the AH's there is better now than it was. The forum community over on the o-boards there has been out-of-control from the start though. That's both on the community and Blizzard, the latter for not kicking some ass right away when it was apparent to everyone what was going on.
In any case while Jay may be a decent RTS designer there's quite a lot of evidence to suggest he may not be a great project manager. So hopefully, wherever he lands, he'll have responsibilities that play to his strengths and minimize the stuff he has to do where his management skills may be weakest.

- Don't derail threads. Stay on topic as much as you can. Know what the thread is about.
- Civility is a virtue. Don't make your disagreement personal. Insulting people won't impress anyone. Be smart when you have a different opinion.
- Don't be that person that's always creating thread and forum drama.

Seeing how we're about halfway thru the expansion, it'd be a good time to start laying the groundwork for the next expansion.
