    Doing "pretty decent" damage is only for one dd-class a reason to be nerfed as it seems: Shadows.
    In all fairness it's only to be expected that they get the protection they need. If you don't protect the one in your group in 3v3 that is best at killing things you're doing it wrong. They did suck solo against melee pummeling them, yes ^^
    Think it was a shame they removed the life swap from them. That was over the top.
    Think we're straying too far away from the topic though >.>
    Everyone has so much to say
    They talk talk talk their lives away

    Good Luck GC, the company will be a lesser place without you x

    Sad to see him go, he (and the other devs) made the game a lot better after the vanilla and tbc balancing mess.
    I would never picture him playing a holy priest, he must be a bit masochistic :P

    He is not taking any of the software with him so it is perfectly fine aslong as he does not reveal any Blizzard company secrets to his new company.

    Heck maybe he is not even working on videogame's anymore it could very well be that he is doing something else.
    usually, high positions (or even devs) in companies are offer packages if they leave, under the condition that they do not join a competitor (most of the time direct competitors are even forbidden) and in case they remain in the industry (likely, given his experience) they are also forbidden to release any kind of howto or inner workings. Take this, with a grain of salt, since I don't work for Blizzard, but I do work as a game developer.

    He might actually be going into marine biology. I think that would be so awesome for him.

    The people who post things like that probably aren't too smart (thinking that one person causes every balance issue they have in the game). Like you said, they'll probably just blame someone else for it and think it's all their fault.

    I'll miss him though. He was like part of the game for me.

    Good riddance for WoW now free from that snarky jerk.
    But bad news for whatever game he goes to.
    Would be awesome if he was hired to work on TESO, would be 2 birds 1 stone.

    Now I have some faith in WOD.
    After so many years Blizzard finally made the right call.

    as someone who has been playing since vanilla, you will not be missed at all

    While no ex Blizzard developer has ever come out and stated that there is no non-compete agreement - from the amount of ex Blizzard devs littering the gaming company landscape, one would have to assume there is not. Pretty much every company out there has at least one former employee.

    Edited to add that it's hilarious reading all the "Oh good - now there's hope for WOD" posts. Are people REALLY that clueless? According to Blizzards own timelines - it's been worked on for at least 2 years - meaning - yep - his hands were on it. Looks like you'll have a 2 year wait before coming back
