Ghostcrawler to leave Blizzard Entertainment
Ghostcrawler announced this morning on Facebook that he will be leaving Blizzard Entertainment to pursue a "great opportunity for something new and exciting". I don't usually share my opinions in news post, so there's a tweet with my full thoughts on the subject.

    This. If you genuinely think GC is single-handedly responsible for everything you dislike about this game, you're delusional.

    How come this isn't reflected in his normal twitter account:

    Played that game on a beta weekend! Was just a standard MMO with the Elder scrolls name slapped on it, really unimpressed.

    Hahahah, the amount of posts that were like "PLEASE FIRE GC" - and now's he's gone and people are like "Oh shit....". Tbh, I dnt see how this is a huge issue, Blizz team are good enough without him, and unless he's going to develop some massive MMO with some pro team, I don't think it'll have that much of an effect on WoW, and I think this is probably gnna be a bad choice for him tbh.

    This sucks I like gc. He took a lot of abuse from morons and did it all in stride. And I like a lot if the systems developed under his helm.

    That being said many people " leave" wow only to return a few years later. So unless he is starting his own company I would not be surprised to see him back before 2020.

    Let's all just watch all the cries of "YES! Now WoW will go back to the Vanilla/BC glory days!"
    And when the new guy enters, "OMG HE'S GONNA KILL WoW!"

    Considering Ghostcrawler did class balance, and a damn good job of it (Responsible for allowing every spec to be PvP viable) it will be amusing to see the haters screaming for joy, then realising in a few months time he had nothing to do with their perceived woes.

    Didn't see that one coming... Good luck to him in the future and good luck to the one taking his place.

    People are being very disrepectful ashamed of yourself.
    GC worked hard to satisfy millions of people, that isn't easy at all.... so show some respect at least!

    You will miss something when it's gone...
    And I am pretty sure, that i'm not the only 1 to see him go is a saddening thing.

    I wish him the best off luck with whatever he is going to do next.

    I don't care if people bitch at me, go ahead - only shows me more how disrespectful you are towards others

    In other words, he was tired of taking so much heat for the changes being made in WoD that Furor wanted (no flying til 6.1 being the most obvious), so he got another job. Good on him.

    I'm the new System Lead. And my first action is that I'm removing Paladins completely from the game, simply because they are a joke.
