Ok, so I have finished transcribing the news section, and I have my results. First, let me repost my original question. On Instance 141, Scott Johnson and Kurt Schilling both stated repeatedly that WoW was done for, that Blizzard has put it behind them and that they are moving on with all their cool ideas, innovations, and advances in gaming into the new MMO that Kaplan is now working on. I don't recall hearing anything of the sort. So, was Mr. Johnson talking out his arse, or did I miss some major info from Blizz, either subtle or stated?I will pick apart my own question, for clarity. Neither Curt nor Scott said WoW was done for. I misinterpreted Scott speaking as a hypothetical dev speaking in past tense as insinuation that the game was done after 4 years, where as Blizz said early on that they have a 10 year plan. Scott did say "sometimes you wonder if it's like 'Well we had all these great ideas, and we never really got the point we could do itm because boy that four years went so fast, we just had so much other stuff to worry about, let's go ahead and instead.. let's just slate that stuff for the next project we're working on.'" which I would take to mean he thinks they are taking anything cool that isn't in WoW and making it for the new MMO instead. If that was not the intent, my apologies to Scott. I will echo what Alex has said, and that is that this was my question, which he was simply answering. It was my fault for inserting names and specifics into what should have been a simple question of news. Sorry to the WI team, Mike, and Alex for bringing them into this issue unnecessarily.Now to Scott's remarks. I was wrong in much of what I said, I admit that. You did say you feel that the quote above is what they are doing, and as I said I may have misinterpreted the tone of the suggested dev thoughts. I will, however, never stop trying to make sure errors in reporting, like this one of my own, as pointed out and fixed. I challenge you to admit when you are wrong on your show, and accept responsibility like I have, instead of writing it off as attempted comedy. You have tens of thousands of listeners, perhaps it's about time you tried informing them, instead of merely amusing them? Thanks to all those who pointed out my mistake, and more so to those who didn't rely on fanboy idiocy, and actually used reasoned, and reasonable comments to get valid points across. Cheers!

Amazing. You make totally incorrect accusations against Scott and Curt, then you attempt to use this as a platform to call them to account for misinformation when the only current example of misinformation on display is you, yourself, making false statements about what they said? This is rich, rich irony.
