Blue got fired for standing up to Ion

Rumors based on what? Because he himself says he’s leaving of his own volition to pursue a job at another company that he’s wanted for years.

" ^ Basically that. I’m leaving on great terms with Blizz, and will be moving into a role with another studio that I’ve been working towards for years. This couldn’t have been possible were it not for the opportunities that Blizzard had afforded me to this point. As much as I would love to stay, sometimes we do have to take leaps of faith in order to grow out our professional selves… or so I’m told! :smiley: It’s all good, I’ve had a great (almost) 12 years with Blizzard <3"

Record revenue. There’s a difference between revenue and profit.

I was once terminated as I didn’t wish to resign and I felt that I had left on good terms. I had spoken with my boss and they decided that the payment would be more if I was terminated instead of straight out resigning way back in my high teens that was.

I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if it were true but as stated this is a rumor. A lot of people don’t like pathfinder but there are people who do. Either way, not much to say or do about this from my end except not buy expansions that have pathfinder in them and keep playing classic.

Were you terminated with your dream job you’d been pursuing for years lined up and good to go?

Yes, certain ‘trusted sites’ can be posted by anyone. Reddit, YouTube, Wowhead are the ones I know of, not sure if there are many others.

Good on Ion. That mod probably deserved it.

Yeah but usually you move on at that age when you have something else to move on to. He gave no specifics about new employment which makes me think he was laid off but very diplomatic about it.

lol the fix will be flying for free but only 10 minutes before the next xpac patch goes live.

He in fact does say he’s leaving to take a job he’d been pursuing for years.

FYI: He got a better job at another company.

I leave this low effort OP troll to his fate and may MOD have mercy on his soul.

Didn’t see that additional comment, never mind then!

Can’t fault you for that. I only found it because I was digging through the thread for anything to back up OP’s claim.

Given the crap content Ion apparently gives his approval on for release…yeah, I can see this happening.

I still wonder why Reddit seems to have more active blues then the wow forums… I actually wonder why 3rd party sites even have blues…

But its a rumor on twitter so it has to be real.

Well, that’s a new theory.

Araxom/Matt works on my team, and I’m happy to say he’s gotten an awesome new opportunity. He’s served our community fantastically over the last 6 years on social (over 10 years at Blizzard total), and I’m happy to say the choice was all his.

Also, for those who know Araxom you’ll find he’s way more likely to be playing Star Wars tabletop instead of Pathfinder. I’m a Pathfinder/DnD 5e fan myself, though. I’m gonna lock this one down for trolling. (Also not about in-game Pathfinder feedback, just a little joke y’all)
