    Furor? The guy who threw hissy fits at Everquest developers and hated hybrids so much, that they were absolutely terrible in early WoW?

    I think he is one of the major influencers to open wow to casual gamers.

    Actually, he criticized Everquest to be too hardcore those days.

    It's not about what he said, it's about his attitude. He acted like a shithead.

    I think you see an enemy where there is none. Also, i doubt you know him well enough to attack him personally.

    Dude. Attack him personally? Have you ever read any of his outbursts?

    You have 14 Days. If after that time the Plane is not properly tuned, I am deleting my characters, and cancelling all of my accounts. The rest of my guild will follow suit, as will several other guilds and people that play Everquest.

    To be brief, I did not work my ass off, jumping through your idiotic hoops with my friends and guildmates, so I could go to a zone where only groups of 18 could enjoy the content. EVEN if past these initial moronic events I can finally get my entire guild in to raid with me, FUCK YOU GUYS. Seriously, FUCK YOU.

    I cannot believe this... right now I'm just so pissed off. I am sitting here in the Plane of Time, and 3/4 of my guild is just sitting around while a group of 18 is repeatedly trying to beat one of the mini ring encounters. Don't you people have ANY FUCKING DECENCY? SMEDLEY WHY DON'T YOU STOP COUNTING YOUR MONEY AND START ISSUING ORDERS?

    The tragic irony of creating the ultimate cockblock encounter in the form of the Rathe which requires 80 people to defeat and then to limit encounters in the Plane of Time to 18.

    14 Days.... after that this site will change from the most popular EQ fan site on the internet to the most popular World of Warcraft fan site on the internet. I'm done playing ball with you useless fuckers... it's my turn.
    This is the kind of behaviour you'd get banned for on the WoW forums.

    There is a difference between being a gamer and being a game director. I am sure he learned from his past.

    I'm sure he learned to hide his rage in order to keep his job.

    It doesn't change that any gamer acting like this would be seen by everyone as a shithead, and for a reason.

    They have forgotten the face of their father in their search for expanding into non existent playerbases.

    Do some research on him. Not as good as you think.

    That's from 2003? Who on earth is the same person after 16 years? Who hasn't said something that would get you banned in wow forums in the past 16 years outside of wow forums as well. I'm not really sure what the point is here?

    Looked forward to this episode! Met Alex at Gamescom during Legion announcement, pretty cool guy.

    Despite his past as a forum warrior he always seemed like a pretty good dev tbh.

    Retail has the problem of being too casual now.
