Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. By now, I'm sure most of you have heard the biggest news. Lead Systems Designer Greg Tiberius Street, better known as Ghostcrawler, is leaving us. Not only that, the Warcraft movie has been delayed until 2016.
But don't get too down. There's still good news to be thankful for. For example, The Daily Blink came out of retirement to comment on Ghostcrawler's retirement. We also got some pretty juicy news for the next expansion. For all of that and more, read on. Downtime today is limited to rolling restarts, but it never hurts to take a break.
