He’s married and has kids though.Classic, one day: *predictably goes up in flames*
Blizzard, doing damage control the very next day: THRALL IS GAY
What were the raid designer’s thoughts? I’m looking to get into 14 raiding after burning out of WoW while still liking the idea, and that would provide some interesting insight; especially when FFIV mandates no mods while WoW basically hasn’t functioned without them since Wrath. That’s another thying now that I think about it. I hate WoW’s unmodded UI. How do people get by without elvui and how have they not baked something resembling dbm into the game?It's probably a troll, but a lot of it is already demonstrably true.
Hearthstone, Starcraft, Diablo are all in major trouble. You don't need to be a Blizzard insider to know this.
World of Warcraft is in major trouble, this too is known. I can't imagine they're all FFXIV fans, but some of the (former, at least) WoW devs also played FFXIV. One of the old raid designers wrote some breakdowns on FFXIV raids as a player/developer. Conversely, the FFXIV team has some deep respect for World of Warcraft/Everquest and has mentioned that in several interviews.
Overwatch is not in major trouble, but it isn't in a great place. They have balance and gameplay issues, and the e-sports side of it isn't technically dying, because it was never alive - but it's still worthless nonetheless.
The only reason I would imagine it's not a Blizz employee is because none of that seems like anything unpredictable and if you're working for blizzard and making fun of all the failures there's no chance you would forget Heart of the Storm.
Weakauras as well to a much lesser extent.
