R.I.P. Blizzard.
My once-favorite PC Gaming company is falling from grace...

I remember a time when they wouldn't release a game "until it was ready". - That is bug free, feature complete and as balanced as practical... And each successive entry was better than the predecessor in almost every way.

And here we are today.

Same here. What a damn shame. When you heard the name "Blizzard" you know it was gonna be a quality product, and you were in for a fantastic time that you were going to be spending hundreds and hundreds of hours in.

I know many talk down about gaming companies that have fallen from grace like CD Projekt, Konami, Activision, Atari, Rare, or BioWare, but Blizzard.....that one hurts the most.

Yep it was amazing. I remember when they announced they were making an MMO (WOW) and I told everyone as soon as it was announced that this game is going to be amazing. I just knew they were going to do something great.
