    WoW is what's given him his career and life - I wouldn't say it's held him back at all.

    Yeah not exactly a clean break, to name your company after one of the things you were most well-known for in your previous gig.

    He retired. Came out of retirement in a non competing space and used the word warchief. A very common word especially in fantasy genre. you are reaching for drama where there is none.

    It's not copyrighted? Then it's free to use. That's all there is to it.

    I wonder if Metzen will make any Warcraft related games with his new company he’s obviously still on good terms with blizzard as thrall is still around and there have been wow board games in the past.

    Ifs not only not competing it could be downright cooperative as blizzard has licensed wow to other company’s for board games in the past.

    No, he said he'll play Thrall for as long as they'll let him.
