    I just noticed something about Anduin's new look-- especially the full CGI renders: he looks strikingly similar to Robert Chase from the TV show "House" in the later seasons (when he cut his hair):

    Manduin looks more like Stephen Amell

    Well he didn't get stabbed in the heart so far, though he did stab the Archon. And he seems to be making eyes at the deeply religious lady in Hallowfall.
    Maybe eventually we get the arc where he has to kill a tyrant.

    Yeah, I see that. His aging is even familiar to Anduins, from boyish to manly.

    Just went and checked out that talent you mentioned, and yeah.. holy shit that sounds infinitely more interesting and cooler than hit combo.

    Though, tbf ANYTHING is more interesting and cooler than hit combo.

    General Manager during Dragonflight, Executive Producer during Shadowlands, and Production Director during Legion and BFA.

    So you tell me how good overall job he did.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Isn't Holly doing that job now? Just like Christie Golden or Danuser were pointless after Metzen returned?

    ~8 mil subs, multiple different game modes, clear and interesting expansion future, best spot WoW has been in over a decade.

    But hey, keep dooming. That is all you are doing here, anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    so according to your words he did pretty good. losing him is not inconsequential then

    losing veteran devs is almost never good because they usually get replaced by people with no experience

    He talked like he was gonna be there for quite a while. So I guess Holly herself is just enough.

    Trimming the team and only keeping people that are necessary?

    To me it sounds more like he planned to leave for a while. Doesn't seem like he was let go. He is probably in his 50's if i had to guess, maybe he just didn't want to spend the rest of his worklife working on wow.

    i mean you also have the fact a lot of management from the worst time in WoW have been let go. i mean danuser was let go silently last year and as much as ppl want to spin Golden losing her official role as her being canned at least she still has ties.

    look up the devs who were openly antagonistic to the players and public at large and ypull see the word "former" pop up a lot

    this just c0nfirms that the specs who remain shit end up with a rework.

    I assume Maka meant him leaving doesn't spell doom for the game. He set up a good structure, and the remaining brass knows how to keep the flow steady even without him.

    I mean, AI is just copying existing, often modern styles (only adding some uncanny valley)
    You're noticing the new generation of artists, not AI.

    Yeah it's more like the Prince going "wait, that's not how it happened" when you die in Sands of Time.

    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.
