:( I'm sad to see such a prominent and familiar face among the Blizzard staff leaving us, I'm sure I'm not the only one. I'd be crazy if I had to leave such an amazing job, especially one that's been going strong for all these years. I can't imagine what/who stole you from it but I hope to see you resurface with another game perhaps in the future if that's what the vaguely stated opportunity you spoke of is.<3 So long Ghostcrawler, and thanks for all the spectral fish.

I can't imagine him leaving for something besides another game developing company at this point. He headed up the biggest mmo in the business for 6 or 7 years.
You will be missed.
So strange to hear it. We will miss you! :(
Good luck, Ghostcrawler!We will miss you.
Good luck on your new adventures! You will be sorely missed! May the loot rolls be ever in your favor!
As a Holy Priest, this is saddening :(
Ghostcrawler u old crab - in your honor i will name all my crab pets after you. Will be sorely missed
I've been unsubbed for most of the last year, but this news coupled with some things I've read about WoD makes me want to start playing WoW again.Wait...what? I get that there are GC haters out there (personally, I'm fairly impartial), but what about the abortion that will be WoD could possibly make you want to start playing again? Seriously, I've played WoW since day 2 of Vanilla (I got it as a birthday present, but my mother wouldn't pay 1st class posting -_-) on and off, and have returned, without fail, for every expansion, and stayed for a considerable time to raid, before taking a few months break before the next expansion. Every expansion has had me excited to go back to WoW. The reveal for WoD makes me want to choke, and for the first time ever, I won't be returning.Not that anyone cares, and nor should they, but the idea that WoD would convince someone to -return- to WoW baffles me.Hmm, for me it's simple. A free 90 instead of trying to level another one. Player housing will add a nice benefit. The fact that I don't have to fight for that one single piece of gear now and can have fun switching specs fairly easily. All those things are exciting to me and layered on top of what is already there it's a good reason to come back or stay. Sorry you don't share the same opinion, but some people are just very hard to please.
..but why is he leaving?like, where's he goin?
Oh, Ghostcrawler I will miss you! It will feel empty without you. :'(P.S: My Ghost Crab battle pet is named after you :DEdits: Because I used a instead of a B on Crab... and errors... lots of fast typing errors.
GC did a really good job. I think anyone with game forum experience knew what was going to be the endgame when he started posting so much back in Wotlk.But I know he didn´t have absolute power and didn´t make decisions about the game on his own.. but because he was the vocal one on the forums, that is what the kids thought. I was surprised he lasted as long as he did in the forums.
..but why is he leaving?like, where's he goin? a. for a different job b. hasn't said yet but seems to be at a different gaming company or one that he will help form like some other ex Bliz execs have done
Holy Priest, but why? Disc is so much more fun. Best of luck and be happy
Much love and appreciation, Ghostcrawler!Sad to hear you're going, happy to hear it's an opportunity that calls. May everything turn out wonderful for you. =)
Speak for yourself Grandine and Hillfolk. For this Paladin, today is a sad day.
Be safe have fun and quest hard :)
A priest! Damn clothies! <3
Great, another rage-quit post, you'll be back......sorry, lol couldn't resist that. You will be missed and good luck in your future endeavors.
