News flash: Blizzard may have developed World of Warcraft but the Blizzard that made WOW isn't the same Blizzard that made the Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo series of games that we all know and love. Most of the people who were in charge of making those games (with the exception of Tigole) left the company before WOW even went into development. Bill Roper and most of the 'big dogs' formed their own company, Flagship Studios.
News flash: You have no friggen clue what you're talking about. Name me ONE of the founders of Blizzard besides Bill Roper.. ONE. If you can't, then how on EARTH do you know they left Blizzard? If you CAN, then check your WoW manual.
Mike Morhain? One of the "big dog" founders.. He's still there. Allen Adhem? Another big dog founder; and another guy who is STILL there. Bob Fitch? Blizzard Programmer since the original WarCraft: Current location? Still there. Chris Metzen: Story guy since WarCraft II? Still there. Glenn Stafford, the one responsible for music and sound since the original WarCraft? Still there. Brian Fitzgerald: Another programmer that's been there since WarCraft I and is STILL THERE.
Should I go on to those who have been on the team since WarCraft II and StarCraft, or do you still think "most of the people in charge of making the game" equates to Bill Roper, the Blizzard North founders, and a small handful of artists and programmers out of several hundred employees that have worked at Blizzard?
