    I am happy, I think. Hopefully he doesn't burn out and brings some sense to lore insanity that happened during Shadowlands.

    I hope this helps to turn the games story into an actually engaging tale and not the current boring, childish, woke ridden snorefest that it is today. but who am i kidding, the old wow was way to masculine and blizzard needs to keep their D.E.I metrics up.

    They should have brought back Ghostcrawler. Nobody needs Metzen. I didn't notice whether he was there or not. Superfluous.

    Danuser is still here so even GIGACHAD like Metzen won't save this game.

    Great news.

    It's cool and all, but I'm done with the story after like a day into a new patch.

    The games lack of compelling things to do and weak reward system, are the real problems it has.

    And Ion and Activision are still running that part...

    It is an improvement, but without purging the existing cretins like Danuser, it will make no difference.

    Metzen is old, and seemingly run out of ideas. He cannot recapture the glory of Wc3 at this stage, alone, in a sinking ship determined to run itself aground.

    I'm good with it. Bring more old devs back.

    I do not think the father of WoW can still save his dead child. It's all too late. But I commend him for wanting to try. Good luck, Chris. We all know you'll need it...

    No matter what direction WoW takes, there's always players that will like one thing and others that won't. Live with it.

    Will we return to World of Warcraft or will it stay the furry-infested happy lizardmen show? Guess we will see in 2 years.

    I will bring my money back if Metzen can set (or reset) the game's lore back on track.
