    Was Ghostcrawler fired/forced out?

    Do you think that perhaps GC was fired or forced to 'resign'?

    No, he just took another job. Of course if he was you'd never hear about it so it doesn't matter.

    well the sub numbers have been getting incredibly low under his reign

    If they stuck with his garbage for so long, why would they fire him now ?

    Of course he was, You can't run off 60% of the casual player base with a system far too complicated for the average player without some type of ramifications.

    He's an incredibly talented person. Incredibly talented people always have other offers. He left on his own.

    IKR! I mean it's a 9 year-old game with more subs than any other MMO on the market. I dunno how he sleeps at night after ruining everyone's favorite game so badly. I would probably just kill myself.

    You realize that it was under GC that WoW hit its all time high in terms of subs, right?

    nope, he rode the success and drove the subs lower.

    The problem is why the hell GC is leaving and they just don't fire Kalgan! Get that disaster the hell out of there ASAP!

    you do know it was a team effort, hes not the sole voice.

    Your looking at around 12-13 million players/active accounts at WoW's peak. Someone correct me if i'm wrong but I remember it being around 12 mill in the Lich King era

    Sub Numbers go to an all time high = Ghostcrawler did jack and had nothing to do with this.

    Sub Numbers go down (through age) = Ghostcrawler is to blame for this all.

    ...logic?

    I could see him leaving just to get away from the hate, the Call of Duty franchise goes through like one CM per game.

    He's a Marine Biologist next to Game Designer, maybe he was just missing the Marine Biologist life and was offered a position for that? Just because someone major leaves a company, doesn't always mean it's because of their "bad performance" according to the selfish minority.

    According to rumours he left, and took a new career opportunity, before he was about to be fired for the nitty gritty of WoD development.

    And people that claim he's going into a different business, nope. The game company that he's about to join are the main ones that have been spreading most of the rumours of his departure, probably because they're gloating at the idea of having stolen a top guy away from Blizzard.
    Maddest of them all.

    something a complex as sub numbers is never about a single factor - like one employee.
