    There probably isn't much left in Blizzard these days, the last couple Warcraft expansions and D3 were both terrible. I was really disappointed with SC2 too, honestly it's been years since blizzard has released anything worthwhile.

    Heh...why do anything? He has to be worth at least tens of millions of dollars if not an outright billionaire. I'd take the rest of life off if I were him. :)

    To be fair, Pardo was the one that help create Warcraft III (great game), the vanilla WoW experience and then the first expansion The Burning Crusade (both also great in their time). As well as helped create The Brood War expansion for Starcraft. He was also part of the development team that worked on Diablo 2 back with Blizzard North.

    Sure Blizzard has started slipping downhill lately, but to discredit Pardo is a bit asinine.

    I hope Pardo lands in a place where he can be his creative self again and without Activision pulling any strings.
