    Ghostcrawler Linkedin.. " Shipped 3 expansions and contributed to 2 others."?

    According to Ghostcrawler's Linkedin..

    February 2008 – December 2013 (5 years 11 months) Irvine, CA

    Led about half of the World of Warcraft design team. Oversaw class, item, profession, combat, PvP, encounter, UI and major feature design. Shipped 3 expansions and contributed to 2 others.

    So.. WOTLK,Cata and MOP... Because TBC came out in 2007 (If I'm not Mistaken)

    So GC was already "contributing" for the expansion after WoD..?

    Maybe WoD is just a filler expansion (Giving that it could last less than 12 months?), and that the next one is the one that "will come out quicker"

    What's your thoughts?
    I'm completely fine of removing the arrows count, but I just can't stand watching my Hunter shooting arrows out... of no where?

    They've been working on WoD since MoP released, so yeah, he's definitely contributed to it.

    He contributed to Burning Crusade because he worked on the Sunwell patch briefly.

    Still doesn't count as an "expansion" ship since it already came out, it was content drop not ACTUAL retail selling product.

    I got this feeling attached to WOD as a quicker expansion, come on no Class, no Race...

    You guys don't understand that they're already well into motion on working on content beyond WoD. They're working on 7.0 as we speak, as well as 6.0 and all patches and raids in between.

    I do understand, especially since half of Titan's team is in WOW now... But still WoD feels very "into motion" compared to MoP's reveal. Yet again as I've stated above, I don't see how this content that is being given with WoD more or equal to what they gave us before.

    MOP is also a quicker expansion. It's going to be shorter than Cataclysm. They are reducing the time, it's a curve. WoD will last slightly less time and then the next one will as well until they hit the level they want to.

    Really, the new class/new race bit is getting boring and tiresome...

    Right. They mentioned this around blizzcon. They are working on 2 expansions at the same time to help get the time between expansions down to 1 year.

    Because it doesn't have to be.

    People seem to forget that if you increase the team size, you produce more in the same time period or the same amount in a shorter time period. So they could have HUGE 2 year expansion or MOP sized expansions on a faster basis. They've gone for the latter. You're not going to get faster expansions AND more content. Same as before and faster production, or more and slower production.

    I understand that is getting tiresome no doubt even I think that, but it's the first time we get a no class/race expansion so it's normal are feeling a bit strange.

    Regarding the shortage, I couldn't agree more though and it's good. Personally MoP was boring to me

    I'm actually a huge fan of Mr Street work ever since he worked on AoE3, was just wondering about his work on the other "two" expansions.

    In many interviews they, the dev team, has stated that they are have 2-3 expansions already worked on beyond what is currently active or announced. So, in theory, GC has contributed to more than WoD should they keep what he has worked on.

    Age of empires 3? I had no idea he worked on that, a damned good game that one (still play it occasionally)
    If you can't make fun of something, its probably not worth taking seriously.

    Same here, he did work on Age 2 If I'm not mistaken I would actually wanted to know if he worked on Asian Dynasties expansion of the third one.

    Riot received a great developer, hope the community however prepares for changes cuz they're gonna happen

    So, in short: the internet.

    That's why it says shipment of 3, contribution to 2 others. Reading comprehension ftw.

    He "shipped" Wrath, Cata & MoP. He contributed to BC and WoD.
    3 & 2. Your math seems off.

    Thet's because he contributed...

    He contributed to TBC, shipped Wrath, Cata, MoP and then contributed again to WoD.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be in this order - "ship ship ship cont cont"

    Edit: dahorst beat me to it.

    "Shipped three." Wrath, Cataclysm, MoP.

    "Contributed to two." TBC and WoD.

    Very easy to understand.
