News Comments > Josh Mosqueira Leaves Blizzard
18. Re: Morning Mobilization Jul 3, 2016, 20:00 The Half Elf
 
Yeah so D3 might be done (or have shitloads of grinding season's ahead of it), but as other's have said Blizzard is pretty large, so why leave the company?
I'm not trying to be argumentative, just more of if there were other projects going on why not move to those projects, or the other projects being worked on aren't that good to want to stick around at Blizzard? That's my concern.
They salvaged enough out of Titan to make Overwatch, D3 is pretty much done, as is Starcraft 2, and WoW has another expansion on the horizon... so were there other projects to work on or at they going into a "maintenance phase" with HotS, Hearthstone and Overwatch and not creating any new projects?

5 People, heck, let it be 20 people in the last few months. Considering how big Blizzard is and how attractive Blizzard still is for luring in new talent ... i dont think that "everyone" is jumping ship and that Blizzard therefore is in some kind of trouble. Its just the normal flux of people changing jobs.

Yeah it's not 'everyone' (congrats on being anal retentive), but when your top people are leaving it does NOT bode well. But when all your top talent leaves (especially the guy who 'fixed' Diablo 3) it's not a good thing.

Not boding well for Blizzard/Diablo when everyone is jumping ship.
So, one man is "everyone"?

Countless fans have asked for this since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One arrived – and we listened!

Unlike another developer we could mention *COUGH* ROCKSTAR *COUGH* who, despite eleventy billion people asking for it, still gives everyone the big middle finger with regards to Red Dead Redemption.

Calm down Cressie, I told ya I'm pretty sure it's coming

I still think 3 had the worst story. Typically there are 'clues' leading up to the end that tie everything together with a 'A-HA!' moment, but it failed miserably.

Unless there is another way to play it without a Headset it's going to be a waste.

It's a well done game, but 3 months after the game launched they shoved everything into the store and it became pay to win (especially in pvp).

Again it's a good game, but recently they have run out of creative juices, and time travel seems like a great way to 'duct tape' the lack of creativity

I've been thinking about picking this up as a new loot grind game, but I keep hearing really bad things mixed with the good to put me off... steam sale of it really wasn't that big either.

Ok here are some good and bad points.

Solid AI (a group of baddies will do everything in their power to get above/behind/flank you.
Solid city environment.
Solid gameplay mechanics.
Interesting skill system and upgrade system via the HQ.

The bad:
Before the last patch, forcing people into the Dark Zone for good equipment.
Removing any sort of Risk vs Reward system in the Dark Zone with grief'ers now able to cut the cable when trying to extract items from the Dark zone.
Flooding the game with more "sets" then 5 Everquest expansions put together.
Instead of having challenging events/missions, doing a really bad job at having Capcom boss 'patterns' and baddies who just have more health and damage then having unique interesting baddies.
Needing an experienced MMO team to help design and maintain the end game. They are hemorrhaging players at an alarming rate, and to "fix" this are just throwing in more content too fast, untested and not seeing if it's a challenge and yet fun/rewarding.

Yeah you can grind if you want to, but it's nowhere near as repetitive as Diablo 3.

Already pre-ordered, this and Prey.

Stoked for the new titanfall, watchdogs, and battlefield... but more stoked for this and Prey. replayed the original prey a week ago, IMO the last great game from that golden age of SP FPS games. Pound for pound, I think Prey is better than halflife.

You pre-ordered a game that has 1 cgi trailer?

They have added a lot of weapons and game modes to TF2, some of which have completely altered the way the game is played.

Saying it's "just hats" just means you haven't played it.

Yeah I guessI never played it. Would you like a picture of The Orange Box and the Half Life 2 t-shirt that came in it as well?
