My guild missed killing heroic LK 10 when it was current content because our off tank bailed on us to play LOL. I have hated LOL since then.
I'm sorry we have to have more GC inflicted upon us, but I can always close the tab at least.
I feel sorry for LoL players.
pay to win, powerful mage, free epic loot ...
And please, MMO programmer goons, can we get an 'opt out of GC posts' on the main page? He's not an employee any more.
don't worry, your class will still be nerfed with a different lead designer.
Have fun finding new devs to hate and complain about.
omg how a game designer can switch from wow to lol without an car crash before :O i hate lol xD omg ghostcrawler failed! :X
Bleh i am pretty sure now that GC didn't just decided he had to leave, there was a mini-drama or mega-drama included inside blizzard!
Anyone here around thinks perhaps that the imminent delay announcement of WoD is the reason he left? Blizzard was bragging about how fast content can come out to players the last year yet, we are facing Siege of Orgrimar patch going to last for as much as a year! till new expansion hits.
I'm a LoL player and I feel a bit concerned though. I mean there's nothing wrong with GC and he probably did a great job at Blizzard, but he's a WoW dude for me, LoL is something as different as day and night. I don't know. I think it will be hard for people to get over this association.

EH come on now guys.. He just went to RioT to work for the new "WoW" witch they are developing right now based on the LoL universe lore.
Demacia vs Noxus... Weeeee! Here comes WoW2 guys hihihi. All hail GC! All hail GC!All hail GC! BOW DOWN YOU INFIDEL!
Grant me the Serenety to accept the things i cannot change, the Courage to change the things i can and the Wisdom to know the diffrence.
By the way, appearently one of the first changes since GC joined Riot introduced in the new LoL patch basically made the map uneven as fuck, pretty ironic :P
On topic I'm glad ghostcrawler came to riot as I play league of legends hopefully the game will be more balanced because at the moment champions like Kassadin/Riven and Nasus rape everyone in low elo.
Oh please, can someone hit Ghostcrawler with a Truck so he can leave gaming alone? Why isn't he doing what other people of his character do? He could go into politics for example. Nobody expects most of them to have a clue of their job, but they usually talk a lot of bullshit quite fluently. Though reflecting of his overall behavior warlord in central-africa or something equally fitting for a sociopath like him would be enough.

Greg Street is a very experienced game designer, but most importantly, he has experience in leadership. Having grown to a huge size in a very small amount of time, Riot probably has strong needs for leadership in all areas of the business. It is something that most players don't consider (and why should they?) but finding great leaders in the relatively young industry that is online games is tough, and top men are fought over tooth and nail.
Riot is so successful with League of Legends that they are bound to explore new games and new genres, but I don't think this is why Mr Street was hired per se. I think it's like Morello said: there are a lot of designers now at Riot, and not enough people to lead them in a common direction, and this is why he was offered a job (and probably a great package).
If you would allow the analogy, if raid size would go from 25 to 250 players, we would probably need more than one raid-leader.
Edit: The amount of people that think this one person has some sort of ultimate, unmatched control over an entire team of developers is astounding.
