Chilton Leaves as Game Director, Hazzikostas Taking Over
Tom Chilton has published a lengthy letter on the World of Warcraft community forum to let players know that he is moving on from his position as Game Director to a new project "just down the hall" at Blizzard. He names Ion Hazzikostas as his replacement and that "WoW will be in great hands with Ion at the helm".
"For me, Legion has been more than just another expansion, though—it’s the culmination of more than a decade of work with one of the best development teams I’ve ever had the pleasure to be a part of. And it’s with a mix of excitement, sadness, and gratitude that I’m saying farewell to the WoW team and moving on to a new adventure within Blizzard.
My personal journey working on WoW as Game Director is at an end, but my journey with Blizzard isn’t. I’ll still be here, but will be focusing on another project within the company. However, it’s with great pleasure that I announce Ion Hazzikostas will be taking my place as Game Director for World of Warcraft."
Two great announcements for you today!
First, we just crossed the line of $3 million in crowdfunding! Add that to our investment funds and licensing money and it puts us right at $10 million in project funding. Both of these are huge financial milestones for us, and we will be forever grateful for your continued faith in our team and in Crowfallgold.com.
Crowfall is my most favorite MMO project of the smaller size ones
In Crowfall you are/will be able to buy stuff for EKs. You will be able to bring stuff from your EKs into campaign worlds.
The principle commodity for PvP in Crowfall should be the Player
And, given what Crowfall is going to be based on it's my viewpoint as well, generally speaking, in Crowfall.
Split body animations
so why not just speed them up? I've seen people ask for animations with more movement built into them, so why not just alter animations so they all actually move your character in some way instead of root them to the ground?
Here are my thoughts about Crowfall Online
Nor may it be what you thought it would be. But the concept of every player being able to log in, roll a crafter, and get that crafter to 'Max' does not belong in a game like Crowfall
Templars were a promotion class
The Templars, fanatical soldier-priests of the Cleansing Flame, have pledged themselves to this end. Templars are the strength of the Temple, enforcing its will in the World and smiting any who oppose the cause of Righteousness.
