    Default Ghostcrawler leaves WoW

    Maybe WoW will get better?

    Maybe he's got a job at Trion.

    Well, I loved to make fun of him, like many others, but I think he was just a straw man for Blizzard's blunders these years.

    Speaking seriously, I have nothing against Greg Street and think he did a good job given circumstances. WoW is still a very good game overall, and I don't think the game breaking (for me) Horde bias is any of his fault.

    I wish him a good success wherever he is going.

    P.S.
    Now, if METZEN left I would jump for joy instead, and could even consider resubbing the game. :P

    P.P.S.
    If Greg had actually got a job at Trion in the RIFT team, I would be DELIGHTED.

    this was surprising news but yeah I guess being the company scapegoat and the person the community dumps all the hate on gets old after 6 years. I think he did a pretty good job, I mean apart from the infamous WOW dungeons are hard blog in CATA

    Wow, counter cultural I know, but I really liked Ghostcrawler. He was unceasing in trying to improve stuff - now, some of the outcomes of his efforts are debateable - he himself, would admit when they were not quite what was desired - but he absolutely can't be accused of not working hard revising and re-inventing the whole time he was there.

    If only those responsible for other areas in WoW had the same work ethic (or perhaps freedom) he did, there would not be the rubbish embarrassing model graphics and population issues that persisted until recently.

    I'd love it if he came to Rift, personally

    I hate the guy too. You wouldn't get tired of punching him.

    Greg Street for Director of Game, Rift. We need a pro at the helm.

    This is Metzen's fault, not GC.

    Basically, he tries to sell the idea of the noble savage, but the orcs are all bloodthirsty thugs or spout some strange honor gibberish that is never really acted on.

    GO'EL GO'EL GO'EL doesn't win points for being an inept clod as a Warchief either.

    Metzen's idea of the noble savage is offensive both to nobles and savages. He hasn't a clue. Once i played a troll shaman and entered a Horde guild. The people there (most of them Orcs in the game) had an idea of nobleness and honour Metzen never dreamt about. Never. :P
