    It's cool that Mike has the experience and loves WoW as a gamer. But from this, I am looking forward to Jen Oneal's leadership. Reading about her, it's pretty clear that she knows how to talk with execs and knows how to present needs for additional finances to make a good product. Let's see how this will end, but it does look promising.

    and destiny 2 got even worse after they left activision with way shorter expansions/less content, way more grind and way less seasonal content and way more stuff in the mtx shop, the guys at bungie even said themselfs without the support of activision they will never be able to make another expansion as large as forsaken, which was the best one by far

    I'll be waiting. You strawmanner.
    Just look at all the posts ITT calling Oneal a "diversity pick", "token hire" or stuff like that, or implying it.

    ... My bad, I forgot that alt righters are functionally illiterate more often than not, so there is no point in telling them to actually read stuff.

    Sure, no one can blame her in harassing the women. Smart move Blizz.

    Personally I find the new leaders look promising, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    I have to admit I cheered when they dismantled the internal Blizzard reforged team and replaced it with Jen's team. Blizzard by itself has been dysfunctional for a very long time and Activision was probably done watching Blizzard turning cashcow IP's into shitfests.

    She was one step below JAB essentially. He was president, she was a VP along with Mike. If anything, the fact that they only made her co-whatever proves it wasn't just a diversity hire to placate the masses. It actually sends the opposite message, a woman can't handle the job on her own.
    I'm sorry does she have all Mythic 20 keys completed?

    I think it's more of a checks and balances decision. That and bringing different perspectives to the leadership table that complement each other. Sounds healthy to me.

    The only credibility Oneal has is being head of a small studio that remade tony hawk and crash bandicoot, literally nothing else worth noting. At least the other guy seems to actually play wow
