    I can't help but feel schadenfreude when I see more news announcements of people leaving Blizzard than positive press about Blizzard's efforts...

    It's pretty telling when you have your top talent, and senior leadership at that, leaving to go to other studios or even start their own. Phew.

    But then again maybe that's the business opportunity he sees. If real quality tabletop gaming could be made more affordable so that it is more accessible to the masses that would be a (no pun intended) game changer.
    Wishful thought: Lots of figure painters have been asking for WoW miniatures for years, not just the hero clicks or whatever they were called. Perhaps Metzen having his own tabletop company and his links to Blizzard will lead to this wish to come true.

    Hopefully this will be a wake up to Blizzard that they should probably go back to their roots a bit. I mean, the people that made those roots are gone now but they better figure it out.

    Given the state of WoW, both during and then after Metzen, I dare say WoW wasn't what gave him his career and life, but rather his own two hands working.

    Blizzard? Blizzard is dead. There's just Activision.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up working with blizzard to use their IP

    D&D is making a comeback in recent years, tabletop is fine. Even in this pandemic, online VTTs are keeping the scene going strong.

    Since Blizzard put the warchief in the dumpster i see nothing but fair to Metzen take it

    if anything, they can do a team up and do the next warcraft rpg book, with the new era

    D&D is making an abnormal amount of success lately, going for a similar route and making a warcraft akin to the 5 edition would be a good mov

    Not to mention isn't he still voicing Thrall for the game?

    While I am incredibly hyped for all the new studios like frost giant and dreamhaven... It's sad to see Blizzard bleed out employees left and right. I still love wow and I hope it still stays a great game for the years to come, with great sequels to the games I loved as a kid.
