    It doesn't bother me AT ALL, but it's not coincidence. It's the first thing that comes to mind, seeing as we know him from WoW and he's the voice of Thrall. I mean didn't YOU think of Thrall or at least the Horde leadership when you saw the name? I would bet money that the majority who know of Metzen would think of the connection.

    Hmm, the name of Chris Metzen's new company doesn't strike me as particularly innovative given his career.

    Virtual tabletops are a booming business. Would not be surprised if the majority of TT games are played remotely at this point, even without covid

    Looking forward to seeing what they put out. It's pretty cool that he's making more stuff. He seems like a pretty cool dude.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    Meh. I hope not. I play miniature wargames to get me off the computer not attach me more to it.

    Well if he's starting a Tabletop company, it would be awesome to see a partnership project with Blizzard that's essentially a revival/recreation of the old defunct Warcraft TTRPG, except as a standalone game instead of a WoW flavored supplement to DnD.

    Writing fluff and creating characters which he can then model / see modeled seems exactly like the thing Metzen would enjoy as a hobby with slight monetary compensation. Unless he gambled hard he should have no financial issues, so just dicking around with stuff like table top seems to be a good way to spend his time. Let's him be creative with something fresh.
