    So another company comes along with an offer of a Game Director position and higher pay, and GC bites on it.

    It may seem greedy, but in the end it's "just business" and we can't say we did anything to make him want to stay. This thread just proves it. People claiming that now WoW will be perfect or that now we need to fire Metzen as well.
    Well, have you seen the hours that guy makes?
    I'm pretty sure that after 6 years anyone could use a break.

    Have you seen how much and how hard he failed? I bet anyone could use some break and therapy sessions after failing so badly at their job and being fired.

    No, I haven't seen that. Can I borrow some of that stuff you are on?

    But sigh, this is going to get tiresome..
    Do you have proof that he was fired?
    If yes, give it.
    If no, shut the fuck up. You are getting annoying and I would say it's getting close to trolling.

    Getting increasingly annoyed at how stupid some people here are.

    Keep it civil

    My opinion is that he was fired too. GC did lose 5M subs since he took the helm, that's hardly anything but full on failure.

    That's the thing with people like you. You think you are entitled to be rude and be vague about your disappointment when in actuality Ghostcrawler is in a good position to not listen to you. If you twittered him this. He'd probably lol at how you really can't be constructive. Really it's just rude fluff thrown at the poor guy. I liked him and people need to realize.


    Yelling "I HATE HIM RAWR11" Isn't going to make a guy go "Hmm...ok that wasn't a good game mechanic, perhaps something else."


    And before anyone says anything, I didn't agree on everything I said but I respected his decision. He doesn't like flying mounts, I do. So really if anything this expansion or rather WoD would seem to imply he would stay(Lack of Flying mounts in 6.0 in Draenor. One would think he would stay. No, I believe this is the old fashioned him choosing to leave.

    Well, you are wrong. He wasn't fired but like he said, the Internet will try and be a detective.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    THAT CAN NOT BE AN OPINION

    He is either fired or not. And he isn't.
    Why not? Because he says he isn't fired.
    Because he is still working at Blizzard while 'training' the new guy before he starts with his new job.

    No, GC and his team has kept this game from going the same road as all competition: The F2P-gutter while losing 2/3th of all subscriptions.

    Why are you still thinking GC was at "the helm", when it has been pointed out innumerable times that this isn't the case?

    Do you have any other delusions you want to blame him for?

    I guess I may have missed the part where he was the Game Director?

    I think we'll just stop this here.

    Ghostcrawler was not fired. He chose to leave. People do it all the time; it's part of life. People desire a change and make a decision - sometimes they even change careers entirely.

    Trolling the forum by posting posts that "WoW is going to be good because GC was fired!" will be infracted as all it does is derail the thread into another fight about how he wasn't fired.

    Closing.
