    He did not write Thrall. That was Metzen, and Christie Golden who wrote his backstory in Lord of the clans. He was not part of the team in BC was he? Why are you blaming things he's not even in charge of. Ghostcrawler is not on the creative development team.

    Is this a troll post? I feel like I took the bait
    Watch yourself. The mods will ban you for "flaming" when it is the god's honest truth and let the OP get off scot free despite contributing nothing to this forum. And yes it absolutely is trolling in the most basic sense and the rule of not being allowed to call others trolls might mean something if the mods actually banned trolls.

    But it was just a joke post ... How can you read about WoW game development being connected to a pro-life and communism or death penalty agenda and take it seriously?

    Everyone knows that Ghostcrawler doesn't write the lore or had anything to do with the itemshop...

    So all these rage and defensive posts are really humorous. It makes it very easy to pick-out the overly defensive fanboys from the crowd... imo.

    If anything it's a parody on the usual complaints made against WoW.

    The reactions are almost similar to when someone published funny pictures of the prophet of a certain religion.

    Correction: GC has more power than other developers but the decisions are not made by him alone. Blizzard develops games through a collaborative effort and it is rather funny how people seemingly have forgotten about that when it didn't suit their agenda. I remember when that developer who had some influence over the warlock class was let go, people on this forum were in an uproar claiming his firing meant the end of warlocks in Wow and not even a day later everyone went back to blaming GC for everything. These forums have become a joke. At least the haters on the official forums are able to hide their bias better.

    Unfortunately the mods clearly can't do anything about a thread until at least 4-5 of them say it is stupid and then and only then can they actually discuss locking it but even then it may not happen because for example, in this thread invoking the name of Glenn Beck and comparing him to GC is totally constructive and totally promotes discussion. I used to report threads and posts but they have made it clear that for whatever reason they are going to allow idiocy like this continue on this site. It is getting to the point where i think posters need to start encouraging Blizzard to revoke this site's fan site status. Maybe once they are cut off they will realize catering to haters and malcontents isn't terribly intelligent.

    logged in to chime in on this. People in this thread need to stop confusing education with entertainment.

    EDIT: This is supposed to be entertainment. You read it, laugh, and 10/10.

    I suppose when he had that idea as well as all of the other story stuff in your post he had to run it by Metzen since Metzen--you know--writes the story.

    I'll play along for a while though.

    Everyone else play nice.
    Seriously? I was joking about multiple mods posting in a troll thread and not locking it. Listen up, there is nothing to play along with. The OP of this thread is NOT promoting constructive discussion and you know it. DO YOUR JOB. How dare you tell people to "play nice" when the OP posted a 100% bullshit thread? Are you fucking joking? Really? What the fuck is wrong with you people? How about the mods "play nice" and do their jobs for once?

    Wait what? According to the official D3 forum hater circle jerk, POE is the second coming (no pun intended). I do know the game is infested with bots much like D3 is and I fully enjoy pointing that out to D3 haters.

    You have posted things far more moronic than this and you were serious. Stupid crap like this gets posted all the time without it being a joke. The only joke here is that you aren't even remotely aware of how out of touch you are with reality.

    They're abandoning casuals? I'm going to guess you're being sarcastic, because the game has been revolved around casuals lately. LFR, flex raids, catch up cap and tons more things. The problem is that when people start getting spoon-fed they always end up wanting more. How more casual friendly is it you want the game to be?

    Give everyone content they can complete within 5minutes of logging on? because you don't have the time to put the hours into the game. If that's the case you might want to take a think whether this game is for you. Giving content with a very short lifespan is hurting the game, and it makes the game extremely boring to play because you simply consume content too fast, leading to everyone wanting more, and more, and more...

    I like the creativity you put into your post, it is well written.
    No the whiny petulant children in the pvp community are responsible for the "state" of pvp in Wow. It isn't designed around 1v1. Get over it already.

    @Xanzul: It's a parody thread. Lighten up. You're acting as if you got personally assaulted by the thread.

    Boo... I read through all 4 pages and not one reply from the OP. This could have been much more hilarious.

    And the OP was just utter crap tbh.
    And sadly two mods passed through, made a post and moved on as if this thread was going to end somewhere good. Truly mind boggling.

    When certain players decided they shouldn't have to pay for it so they are now defining it as "pay to win" at the detriment of those who don't want to see any real pay to win items enter Wow. It is sickening really. What's worse is those against true "pay to win" are defending those calling cosmetic items "pay to win". It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic.

    Given your post history it is hilarious that you actually think this guy is joking. It doesn't even matter because this is a bs thread that should have been locked from the second a mod saw it.

    You need to put more points into "Detect Sarcasm"...

    This thread is only going to end badly if more people like yourself continue to take it seriously. It isn't the most hilarious thread I've seen here, but it was still good for a few chuckles.

    Based on what? Like I said look at your own post history, you have said far more moronic things in the past. Even if it is a "parody" thread much of it contains sentiments of many who post here which confuses the issue. True parody is obvious.

    It is safe to stop reading at this point. World class troll? Yup..the bill fits your post.
