Is there any question as to what I'm going talk about this week?

Chris Metzen retirement.

Now regardless if you liked him or not his influence to all Blizzard's IP's has been huge. Blizzard Watch did a very good story about his history at Blizzard. In fact it's easy to say that with out his story telling work in Warcraft three, we may never have gotten World of Warcraft.

(If we never had World of Warcraft we would never have Gratz.)

I can't blame Metzen for wanting to retire. This was a big year for Blizzard. Overwatch, The Warcraft movie, Legion. This has been a huge year the company and I bet Metzen as well. So the want to sit down and spend time with the family is one I can support.

So thank you Chris Metzen for your gifted hands that created worlds of wonder.

I believe Chris has more than earned his retirement and especially the opportunity to be there while his family grows up. That is unbelievably rare in this society. I don';t believe his legacy at Blizzard will ever be surpassed.

At the same time I believe the game is going to suffer without his presence. I feel the story will keenly miss him, and we will miss the Metzen touch.

You've got me checking for ghosts in each page. Is this leading somewhere Halloweenish?
