100% he was fired
Very strong chance he was fired
Very strong chance he left on his own

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.
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.
Well, you are wrong. He wasn't fired but like he said, the Internet will try and be a detective.

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.

I hate these casual Fridays ruining it for real Fridays.
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.
