I think it's sad that so much of the focus of these firings was whether or not WoW will be okay. What about the 600 people who were fired? Six. Hundred. People. Now unemployed. Would you want to be a part of the 600? I know I wouldn't. In this day and age when unemployment is at its possible peak, it's always sad to hear lay-offs, regardless of which company is doing it. I do understand Blizzard, as awesome as they are, is still a company, and what is a company but a workforce of people who are trying to make money. That's what businesses do so I understand they had to make cuts, but my heart goes out to those 600 people that got laid off and their families and hope they are all able to land on their feet okay.At the end of the day, I know Blizzard would not sacrifice their staff to affect development and that we as gamers would still be taken care of as long as we keep buying their products.
