Tonight we were witness to an example of messy break-ups gone wrong as Dave Kosak, Lead Quest Designer for World of Warcraft, grabbed the wayward reigns of Class and Systems Design from Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street. Informed that Ghostcrawler would be spending a drunken weekend gambling to ease his sorrows, Dave "Fargo" Kosak decided to take to Twitter in an attempt to officiate and continue the iterative process that is balancing World of Warcraft using the hastag "#TakingOverForGhostcrawler.
Ghostcrawler, seeing this and no doubt effectively inebriated at this point, turned venomous and began to criticise the story of World of Warcraft (which is -in part- helmed by Lore Guru, Dave Kosak) with sarcastic tweets under the hashtag "#TakingOverFromFargo". I've created a transcript below for those who dislike Twitter.
At this point Ghostcrawler caught wind of what was happening on the Twit-O-Sphere and began chiming in his bitter vengence:@DaveKosak AKA "Fargo"
Yeah I'll be taking over class tweets now! RT @Ghostcrawler: GC fairly unplugged for a few days. Expect few updates.
Rogues? Nerf. Mages? Nerf nerf. Shaman? BUFF. 4th Shaman spec uses HATS instead of totems. Done. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Mages will now be called "Whizzers" and can only cast spells by screaming "Firebolt! Firebolt!" into their headset. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Paladins and priests are no longer allowed to raid on the sabbath. Exception: Shadow priests with guitars. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
RT: Warlock green fire replaced with confetti
Hunters are now allowed to tame Druids as pets. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Enhancement Shaman tank spec: Dual-wield shields. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Death Knights now take damage from healing. To balance, DPS classes can damage them to restore health. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
For science, all class nerfs will be done on a single server so we can compare to the norm (Sorry, Lightbringer). #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
This. RT @Eliot_Lefebvre: You can't buff Shaman. You literally can't. Anything the class lacks in power it makes up in awesome. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
I'm keeping the moose. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Druids get new DPS spec, where they shapeshift into a Worgen Hunter. #TakingOverForGhostcrawler
Hm, @Rastailian points out that would allow Druid Hunters to tame themselves. Accordingly, they can "Stampede," (looks like mirror image.)
Yes! And Forsaken can cannibalize living Death Knights! RT @SihnonHunter: Taurens & Worgens now skinnable.
It seems that, for now anyway, tensions have simmered and matters have moved from public eyes to private discussions. It remains to be seen whether these changes will stick or are yet to be implemented. However given community support for many ideas represented we may be about to witness an unprecendented shake up in the Game Development of the Warcraft series.@Ghostcrawler AKA Greg Street
Night elves will henceforth no longer be sissies. #takingoverfromfargo
No more trolls. Thunder King was their last stand and it failed. #takingoverfromfargo
Tauren realize their goals have always been more in line with the Alliance. Swap imminent. #takingoverfromfargo
Anduin duels Garrosh. Loses. BIG SURPRISE. #takingoverfromfargo
New warchief? Undead Gamon. #takingoverfromfargo
Gnomes... no. Just no. We're sorry about gnomes. #takingoverfromfargo
Out of bad guys, so... Lich King's back baby! #takingoverfromfargo
Folks, we have no idea where we're going with Draenei. I mean... really. #takingoverfromfargo
