Do you think this will improv wow?
No way it can get worse with him around so yes?
There’s no way things get worse right???
You would be suprised
They brought him back because they know that they are going in a bad direction.
I really hope this means he is helping design 11.0.
Seriously dude imagine taking on an ip and gutting it lmao I’d want him back too
what does that uphold? the creative team has always been good?
According to the wow facebook page he will be creative director, and his current work is world of warcraft and forging the next adventures
Content creators called this a month or so ago. The people that are wanting to go into Teletubby land instead of sweaty dudes with swords fighting arent happy.
Has to be a reason he came back, hopefully he told them he wanted full control and no interference or nothing at all.
I think the big thing is that it will increase morale which is always a good thing.
So much of the game and the fanbase has changed tho… so I’m still not entirely sure how this will affect the broader direction of the game. But I am hoping this means that the usual cast of famous characters (Thrall, Jaina, Sylvanas etc.) don’t just become villain of the week for a contrived plot device.
I’m also hoping for a world revamp. but still keeping an open mind in case the game heads in a different direction.
There is no way thats happening.
He blew is fortune in Vegas, then his house in the hills of Irvine burned down, so now he needs the money.
Yes, if the game is still making money and the company is still in business then it could be plenty worse. No company keeps a product or service around long if it’s not making a profit.
This is absolutely the best news they could have announced Excellent for the Warcraft community. It’ll be amazing to have him at BlizzCon this year.
Good we need more Blood and Thunder and less Dragon Tissues and therapy
I’d prefer if they scripted it.
I don’t think it will improve WoW that much.
People kind of overstate Metzen’s importance to saving WoW’s identity. We all hate Danuser’s hack writing, and Metzen is by all means better than he is. But Metzen is not without his flaws also. Metzen has also been on the end of some truly, stunningly bad lore developments in the past. But he was also involved in WoW’s greatest expansion: MOP. So, it’s a wash.
I mean literally, the art and such?
