    Reading some comments here almost gave me cancer.

    Some people shouldn't be allowed to post on threads about matters that they just simply cant understand.

    EDIT: Talking about the "GC made the game lose 6 million subs" type of comments

    Ok.

    Who even cares? He's one of a team, nothing changes by him leaving... He just happened to be the one making foolish statements on twitter and being "out there".

    Someone doesn't understand what "lead" means.

    And if he is a decent lead then he listens to his team, which I think he did. I dont agree with everything he has done, but over all its better than it was before him. I hope he has success in his future endeavors.

    Because it was so awesome before him, with many specs being useless in raids and others being restricted to crappy roles.....

    It wasn't like that until he took over.

    Edit> You can ask most players who played Vanilla and TBC, they preferred it before Ghostcrawler took over. A few of my friends are actually re-thinking about coming back now that GC is leaving.

    Spilling out whine with water will allow more to drink it, but at the same time worsen the taste.

    About fricken time. The dude was terrible at his job, and I'm being conservative.

    Had to chuckle about him throwing out what class he played at the end. Queue the conspiracy nuts going over all the changes for the last few years and somehow relating them to this.

    I prefer to play a private TBC server and that's what I do over playing retail. During TBC every class/spec had specific roles true... but you needed/wanted some of every class/spec to make a raid work.

    Since GC took over it's been more of "stack the class/spec" and shit on the ones that suck and don't keep up like shadow priest. They start off fine early in an expansion and then suck later on (wotlk) and nothing was ever done quick enough to keep them competitive... and since you didn't "need" a shadow priest for mana/spell damage they were cut out a lot.

    That was just one from my own personal experience (yes I am a shadow priest). But the game was better before greg street f'd it over homogenizing everything.

    Time will tell of course, but you know that GC was just one part of a development team right? He alone didn't control the direction of the game, and what he said on the forums/twitter reflected the views of the team rather than just himself. Maybe the systems team will somehow take a new approach to balance or whatever, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Also... "real" world of warcraft? What a joke. Name one thing GC "did" to the game that made it so awful. Maybe it'll turn out you actually have a clue as to what his job was on the dev team.

    He was only lead systems designer. If you think the mostly invisible technical stuff behind WoW is ruining the game, he's probably the right guy to hate. Otherwise, you're picking on the wrong guy. He became the voice of the WoW Dev team, but he was never the leader of it.
    There's a lot of "lead" guys who work on WoW. There's also a Lead Encounter Designer who leads the team who creates raids and dungeons, a Lead World Designer who leads the team who creates the main game world as well as a lead sound designer, lead art director, lead creative director, lead software engineer among others. At the top of the food chain though is Production Director J. Allen Brack and Lead Game Director Tom Chilton. Ultimately, they're the ones who hold the reins of WoW's development.

    This is great now I have another thing to be thankful for on thanksgiving!

    From my point of view he didn't have a very positive reputation among the player base.

    I think his departure will ultimately help the game more than it will hurt it.
