    Brian Holinka Leaving World of Warcraft Team

    Brian Holinka Leaving World of Warcraft Team

    Simply put, this is my favorite game of all time, and working on it these past five years has been a dream come true. I have learned so much from the women and men who make it and everyone who plays it. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on a game that so many people around the world are so passionate about.

    A few weeks ago, I was offered a new opportunity at Blizzard that I’m really excited about. Tomorrow is my last day working on World of Warcraft.

    As a longtime player, I couldn't be more excited about what the future has in store for World of Warcraft. In particular, the PvP team remains hard at work on some incredible plans. I fully expect that the best years of World of Warcraft PvP are ahead of us.

    Thank you to everyone involved with World of Warcraft, from the development team to the players, for letting me be a part of this game's community. I consider it a great privilege.

    can't blame him, the level of abuse he gets for pvp issues rooted in shitty spreadsheet raiding focused class design that he has absolutely nothing to do with would make anyone want to leave

    He didn't leave Blizzard.

    The great evil was vanquished this day.

    I wonder what game he will mess up now. Hopefully not any new project.

    This is too bad, Brian H. was one of the best PvP designers this game has ever seen. The balance in PvP has been superb over the last 5 years, some of the best balance the game has seen.

    Brian will be missed for sure, but I know hes off to better things at Blizzard (ie promotion).

    Now that he is gone at least there is a chance.

    Main page news article and comment = this Thread.

    Your comment appear on both.

    Happy days. This guy was a clueless shit. A great quote on here compared him to a Starbucks manager that didn't know his store had been out of coffee for a month. I feel bad for the players of whatever Blizzard game he is about to move to and stain with his influence.

    Oh my~
    I think I felt the ripple of the simultaneous popping of sparkly wine corks even here. Some of our constantly grumpy posters are hopefully shutting up now.

    Time to present us with the next scapegoat.
