    GC is a double agent trying to sabotage LoL from within so Blizzard Heroes Of The Storm can try to take its place as the most popular MOBA game. Clever Blizzard....

    Well if he manage to balance champ its oke.

    But probably this will mean LOL its downfall.

    Well he was right there, that is quite an opportunity. Who is to say Riot aren't planning something new and asked him to head the project?

    Seems he got fired from Blizzard. Because this is going a step down the ladder.

    Blizzard as a company is bigger than Riot Games, but League of Legends is bigger than all Blizzard games combined. Every blizzard game is losing players and popularity by the second while LoL gets bigger, if you ask me Riot games has a brighter future.

    I'm totally sure that you know best where Ghostcrawler is good at and where he is not.
    Please go on and enlight us with your infinite knowledge.

    Inc sweeping nerfs to Kayle for no real reason. To the ground, baby!

    Now that youve moved on from Blizz, what truly was the design intent for Ret in pvp?
    I don't think it was a mystery. They have a lot of utility and some ability to heal in a pinch but at the cost of mobility.
    Yeah, they just have no clue, do they?

  13. #273
    He's just a blizzard plant. They sent him to ruin LoL so that when heroes of who gives a s#!t releases people tired of broken & unbalanced LoL will switch games...haha

    I always felt like GC had a slightly sympathetic streak for people like me, who enjoyed the game and raiding in Wrath, and then lost our previous joy because we couldn't keep up with all the number crunching. I am an "interesting choice over sheer power" person, but that's not the direction the player hive mind has gone in. So I'm just another "lost" player.

    did you ever read about HotS? It has nothing in common with LoL/Dota, it's more Questbased etc.

    I don't know why there is so much hate for GC.

    For the chess i guess he means, for ordinary players , hmm well even up to grandmasters, no one can think xx moves ahead , so there is a random generation of chain_of_moves from a point and upwards inside our minds while playing Chess.

    I don't know if Riot is the best company to work at in the entire world, because best means a lot and different things to anyone. I would prefer to think that Riot is making up something new and they wanted GC's expertise badly.

    Riot seems to have about 1000 employees(2013 est) while blizzard 4700 (2012 est)

    read this about 2012, is the tencent chinese company that acquired big portion of riot games
    http://www.tencent.com/en-us/content...nts/201202.pdf

    Code:
    Other (losses)/gains, net. We recorded other losses, net of RMB284 million for the year ended 31 December 2012, compared
    to other gains, net of RMB421 million for the year ended 31 December 2011. The change primarily reflected the absence
    of deemed disposal gains of RMB708 million recognised in the previous year as a result of the Riot Games Acquisition and
    the Gamegoo Acquisition, and an increase in impairment provision against selected investee companies
    So a big portion of riot games capital is something less than 708million RMB which means something less than 85million euro/ 70something million USA.
    Even if we assume thats just say 30% of the total capital, Riot games is about 210million USD, where Blizzard is
    Code:
    --Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) (the “Company”), a global leader in interactive entertainment, announced today that it reached an agreement under which it will acquire from Vivendi (Euronext Paris: VIV) approximately 429 million Company shares and certain tax attributes, in exchange for approximately $5.83 billion in cash, or $13.60 per share acquired before taking into account the future benefit from these tax attributes. In a simultaneous transaction, ASAC II LP, an investment vehicle led by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick and Co-Chairman Brian Kelly, to which they have personally committed $100 million combined, separately will purchase approximately 172 million Company shares from Vivendi for approximately $2.34 billion in cash, or $13.60 per share.
    if these data doesn't reflect the reality of which company is bigger please give me some links i am very curious, kid woke up just now, i had no time to search more.

    Bigger in no way implies better. Riot has a far superior employee satisfaction rating, and is therefore, as i said, the best company to work at.

    Also, not knowing what someone will do != RNG. That's a completely different concept.
