    Introduce all the new people you want WOW your time is done over out we are tired of your crap, Blizzcon will implode this year, nobody wants to play your old ass platform anymore, nobody wants to spend hours and hours building a weapon then get it totally yanked from them. Blizzard is an epic fail I would rather play Runescape (actually I am) as go back to WOW. Have a good day.

    Ion: "I know you are new to the team but keep in mind that things have changed. It's more about Money than Fun. Remember that."
    John: "But isn't Fun to the Player more important?"
    Ion: "That was the past. These fools will never leave if we just keep throwing them a Bone once in awhile. Easy Money."
    John: "Wish I knew that before I signed on with Blizzard."
    Ion: "Ok....Have a Great Day. Get to work."

    You won't, maybe I won't but I'm pretty sure the game still has the biggest population from subscription based mmorpgs.

    Game is still in top 10 on twitch after so many years even if most mmorpgs don't last in there for more than a month after release (patch or global)


    Did they screw up? Fuck yes.
    Do people still want to play it? Seems they do.


    tl:dr - "you" not "we"

    I always have time for executives In the gaming industry who used to produce/design games rather than suits who just parachute into the industry with no gaming background.

    But WoW is on the rocks currently, all I see is posters asking for classic. Still if you have people like this they can turn things around, better than having suits from Ice Cream and Chemical companies for sure.

    Damn, no mention of strapping him to a chair and going to town with bamboo slivers, or red hot pokers.

I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."

    People who think they are some kind of "majority of unhappy people" are amazing, including but not restricted to MMOs.

    A PR interview,keep the good ties with Blizzard.Like does anyone actually think it would be a good read to take someone NOT involved with the uprising of Wow and post some interview with him,Like to 99.9% of the people this guy is a nobody,no different than someone we pass on the street.
    My hunch,this site's business team contacted Blizzard or vice versa and this is the guy they gave you,i highly doubt anyone at mmorpg went specifically looking for this guy as being an exciting interview.

    To PROVE how uninteresting this is,just look at all the comments,it is like nobody even cares about anything he had to say,,the last one being the best...."i still enjoy Wow".

    Even his mention of PTR and bugs is just same old.What ALWAYS happens is reports go into variable importance,the lesser are pretty much tossed in the trash can,thanks for your effort to report but yeah no thanks.So they use a database to determine the QUANTITY of same issues to put that problem at the top of the pile.This does NOT mean as he eluded to that they are "stepping up the effort" this is OLD SCHOOL,done like this for the past 40 years of gaming.

    You know what makes good reading,get some gaming expert,NOT tied in with Blizzard and have them give their take on ideas,design,improvements,problems etc etc.Interviewing some BIASED employee is going to do what,nothing yeah,just a PR move for business reasons.
    Has ANYONE ever asked or requested an interview from this nobody?I doubt it.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I see allot of comments in regards to wow classic and how *you* are going to play it .. remove that itch! Just google one of the hundreds of classic servers out there and give it a go , see how long you last. Just thinking about it makes me want to reflexively altf4.

    Had to pass on this. So salty right now about Blizzard and BFA. Uninstalled WoW for the first time in a long time. Cancelling your sub is one thing, but uninstalling means business!

    When I hear the words "executive producer" I think of someone who is probably vastly overpaid that the company can do without.

    I think it's safe to assume the Trickle Down Theory never has worked well....

    No one asked him why he ruined the game, seemed a very obvious question.  He should find another line of work.  I will bet someone is regretting promoting him to the position.

    I have done all of that too. But have you really taken it to the next level? Have you also removed the Battlenet launcher? Did you? Because I haven’t yet...

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    We aren’t making this to pull down a paycheck.


    PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!!!! Oh my fucking God, that was the best joke anyone from the WoW team has ever said since release!!! After all the bullshit they've done for years and all the controversial shit they've done since last Blizzcon, they legit think we'll believe they're not doing it for a paycheck!! They're "genuinely looking at people's feedback"? Really? You expect anyone to believe THAT?
