So Long, and Thanks for All the Spectral Fish
Ghostcrawler confirmed the news on the official forums.

We just came off of a great BlizzCon. We had so many different games to talk about, and we were thrilled at the reception of Warlords of Draenor. It was great to meet or reconnect with so many of you. I love BlizzCon dearly, which makes it so hard to tell you that this will be my last one, or at least my last one up on stage. An opportunity has come my way, and I have made the very tough decision to move on from Blizzard.

I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of this grand quest. I have said a hundred times that having passionate gamers, including the angry ones, is a far better place to be than having a community that doesn’t care. You all care. Like us, you want the game to be the best that it can be. So I ask you to keep on providing your feedback. I promise (and I rarely promise!) that the developers care very much about what you have to say.

I’ll be out there, and I can’t imagine it will be that hard to find me.


P.S. No, you can’t have a pony. Or a moose. Or a mantis shrimp. Or a tardigrade. Or a crab. Keep trying though.

P.P.S. I play a Holy Priest.

    WoW being a different game as the years have gone on is a good thing. I can't imagine this game being like vanilla or BC year after year. That would get so ridiculously boring and repetitive. Blizzard is always trying to mix things up to keep the game fresh and different. Some things I've loved, some, not so much, but at least they're trying different things.

    oh wow I wonder how class balance will now unfold with someone to replace GC's job.
    Regardless, I wish him all the best and appreciate his effort in balancing 11 classes and dealing with player QQ daily.

    Sad thing is that his contributions will be a key factor on WoD sucess but idiots will say that it was a sucess because he was gonne.

    After reading that I'm sad

    Unfortunately he has had more than enough time to crap-up WoD.

    I'm in shock. May the gods smile on thee, GC.

    Don't panic!!

    The next in line has some big shoes to fill and I think we all have to agree: Players that complain and players that love all have one common thing - we care about the game. Having someone listen is better, 1000 times better, than having developers make blind decisions.

    Miss you greg.

    There have been more positive changes than negative thanks to GC and his team, Greg Street also managed to set a new bar for how developers communicate with their fanbase, he was very passionate & caring about WoW. Those of you that feel like throwing a celebration now that he's gone, well, you are fools.

    The thing I find shocking are the amount of people who actually think he played the game. It's laughable. When he posts his armory I'll shut up.

    i think gc did a lot of good for the game. but like everything else, there's evolving trends that are missed by the establishment. the only way to keep pace is to bring in fresh perspective. i think its a good move for both parties.

    I love how the same people bashing him and blizz for f*ing up WoW are all like "I bet he's going to wildstar"

    Well if you think he f*cked up wow why would you want him on wildstar?!? lol some people...

    I'm actually pretty sad to see him go. This came as a shock to me. Good luck in that golden opportunity, GC.

    I didnt like him personally and hoped he would leave way faster since imo he damaged the game more then he improved it but good luck regardless. And really curious to see if they go towards a new direction when it comes to game design. Maybe improve and make leveling challlenging again? Wonder if this change was related to the one heroic raiding format for next expansion.

    Can I have your gold?

    Can we have a commemorative spectral fish pet?

    Still a little shocked, for some reason I felt like he'd always be there *tear*.

    All the best to him, he leaves some big shoes to fill.

    Shocked he is paying a holy priest, wonder how long thats been for though. I was expecting something like a Warrior (guessing a tank role).

    I guess he spends allot of time as the authority figure in the day so just wants to relax and sit back while gaming. Hence the healing role.

    Sad to see the guy go, he has made good and bad choices but lets not forget im sure those bad choices were not just his own and many voted them through in the first place. Hell i bet most the bad stuff was not his choice anyway he was just trying to make it smooth as possible.

    Wonder what job he has taken on another blizzard job maybe? Most likely some activision role for more money heh.
