@LoremstrMarthan I don't think expansion was the problem. People are still killing themselves to work for Blizzard. But, Blizzard is a company and brand that was built on well-aged perfection. ActiBlizz is a publicly traded company that needs volume and new releases to feed the share price.

@FRANA_OW Fran you know that Jeff leaving blizzards sets overwatch to death right? He created a great game but we gotta open our eyes and see that it has been down the hill for awhile and leaving in the middle of a OW2 launch worries everyone about the future of the game.
