    Uh... Ghostcrawler was lead systems designer for WoW, and Wyrom is the Product Manager for GS (and might be the only one currently working for Simu, with no APMs). Both of them have/had immense pull in their jobs.

    Hm, you are right. I might have been thinking about Tseric then. That whole thing was a mess. As for Wyrom, I'm sure he has pull but I'm willing to bet that simu is heavily pushing Gemstone to make money and he couldn't stop that if he wanted to. I'm not sure we will ever know who's deciding what on the other side of the game.

    If this happened, I'm pretty sure almost everything I've ever even briefly complained about would either go away or at least I'd be 100% at peace with it.
    Simu's after reading your post:

    lol Tseric

    Back when Blizzard told us via Tseric that more intellect = more mana = more damage while mages were getting completely destroyed on damage meters by everyone because we had no damage increase stats on our gear.

    Good times. Reminds me of Estild justifying wizard nerfs because we had Mana Leech.

    I was actually a playing shaman as my main class back when everything went down. My favorite thing the shaman community did was creating a post titled FUCK BLIZZARD on the official forums stating that if Blizzard was paying attention the shaman forums or class at all, then someone would delete the post. That post was repeatedly bumped and remained at the top of the official forum for WEEKS before someone finally deleted it. Can't say the shaman community was wrong on that one.

    Looking back I really feel sorry for Tseric. He was set up for failure and Blizzard fuck him over royally. I hope the guy found a better job.

    I said it in Vanilla/BC, and I'll say it again! Shamans are just druids whose players never learned to read good or do other stuff good too and accidentally clicked the wrong class at creation.

    I don't remember the specific post that Tseric ended up getting fired over, but I'm pretty sure he started popping off on a player on the forums. Which was probably deserved, but I don't remember what was happening at the time.

    I'd never be able to do that type of job, because you still have to tow the company line even if you completely agree with the players and think the issue you're being forced to defend is bullshit. Not saying that was the case with Tseric, but I'm sure it happens a lot. It does in GS for sure.

    Elemental shamans rocked in Vanilla/TBC as proved by Ioneye.

    It was during class review and he was filling in for whoever was the main shaman guy at the time. Shaman were in bad shape. There was a lot of really good suggestions and discussion (with shitposting intermixed) but he ignored all the well written and thought-out stuff and only responded to the shitposting. Once the class review was finished and virtually nothing that was suggested was done, the community had reached critical mass he made his infamous 'get off my internet' post. I feel for the guy but at the same time, he brought a lot of it on himself.
