    I have mixed feelings about this. I know Metzen is an important figure to a lot of people, but he has made some mistakes with WoW through the years. I hope it turns out well.

    Good move.

    This lovecraft BS in Dragonflight is boring as hell.
    The factions and races we actually play and love are not involved in the story anymore and all we currently have are dragons and dragon villians nobody actually cares about.

    If your team is full of clowns, then you're nothing more than a Director of Circus.

    Let's hope they'll let him do the WoW section at Blizzcons opening ceremony again.
    He was always more captivating than Ion or Dave Kosak imo.

    Blizzcon will be more watchable, at least.

    I hope this is more than just a PR move

    cant wait to see everyone deifying chris metzen and just casually ignoring the bad decisions made while he was at the helm. Want to say that I'm excited he is back, but there's gonna be some serious revisionist history in the discussion around this. People act like the lore and game was perfect up until he left lmao

    Did Danuser get fired in turn? That's the news needed to go along with this.

    You...don't actually think this is going to change with Metzen taking a full-time position, right? Hasn't he already been working as an advisor? The direction with factions is here to stay.

    he and the team will be sharing what we've been working on

    Warcraft universe

    next generation of adventures
    Who says it will be an expac?

    Can't wait to see people crying about the next xpac and how Metzen fucked it up, when them hiring him now has little to no bearing on an expansion that's already been in development for the past 3+ years and is 95% finished at this point.

    I don't think not having Metzen is what's wrong with WoW, and I don't think Metzen can just single-handedly fix everything. Which is exactly what the unwashed forum hordes are going to expect and demand.

    yeah, pretty much. I'm pretty confident that even if we get an expansion with the "cool" things people cite as missing, there will still be post after post whining about the story. People want the feeling they had when they first experienced the warcraft universe, it's just nostalgia. No one can replicate a feeling steeped in nostalgia, it's a purely personal problem

    Nobody do this. It the same with starwars and Lucas.

    And in the end there will be always toxic fans that mimimi about everything.

    But we can agree, that warcraft with metzen is way better than without him. Like Star wars was much better with Lucas than with disney.
