He was "offered a different job within Blizzard". I am surprised he lasted this long after putting the game in a slow downward spiral in the last 5 years without any idea of how to fix it.

But it was so fun to blame Holinka for everything. Thanks, Holinka.

something at overwatch or hots most likely, unless they have a secret new IP in development that involves pvp, can't really blame him for leaving a position in a dying game where he gets an incredible amount of unjustified hate

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

I can honestly tell you that even though people did say that, no one, and I mean NO ONE actually wanted GC to come back. Him leaving WoW was 100% for the best. Cata RMP is still giving me nightmares to this day.

On topic, have they announced who is going to be taking his place?

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

him coming back would be a fucking huge improvement over Ion RnG Hazzikostas and Celestalon

You guys are forgetting gc had 0 control of actual stats/spell design etc, everything was made for pve. 

But in legion this retard had acces to change stats to any ability/spec/class he could also add abilities/extra talents for pvp environment its actually sad how he managed to make the game this boring and unbalanced at the same time. 

 

He thought adaptation/relentless is a good idea for the game, just let that sink in. 

 

He didnt even have to balance around pve gear -.- Blizz couldve literally picked up any wow player above 2k exp and he would probably make a better desigend pvp game

With regards to the new project he is going to work in, there are rumors about a Diablo MMO project (a lot of Blizzard job openings for a Diablo project, including extremely essential positions). Now I am well aware that I am spreading a rumor here, but all these new Diablo job postings etc is very, very suspicious, especially when compared to the current maintenance mode of D3.

 

In any way, we cannot be sure of anything at the moment, let us hope that the new person who is going to replace Holinka will do a much, much better job.

Good analysis, and very hard to understand how people can still fuck up years later...

stats are not the problem with legion pvp

 

he could also add abilities/extra talents for pvp environment

because being able to add 1-2 active abilities back per spec was easily enough to fix legion spreadsheet raiding pve class design, right? more like 10+

 

He thought adaptation/relentless is a good idea for the game, just let that sink in. 

one thing I agree with

 

He didnt even have to balance around pve gear

outside of legendaries/broken trinkets, pve gear was never actually a problem in the first place, choice and customisation is better then one size fits all, everyone has access to bis gear for every single spec in the game with zero effort whatsoever, derp boring legion gearing
