It's not that Ion isn't capable, or intelligent

    He can be the most intelligent participant but the WOW TBC Classic Gold most incompetent game manager. They are not mutually exclusive. I am not saying he certainly is incompetent, but my impression from the interviews he did is that he don't know what the players need or he's always in a situation where he is at the stage of no return and end up doubling defending and down the game layouts.

    When you're a healer doing less overall recovery than your tanks in raid you've fucked up, the guy lives in a bubble and has no idea what the sport is like for your average or even top end player because he himself doesn't bother. He gray parses in raid, and maybe runs 1-3 mythic plus dungeons a week even early in patches while his guild funnels him gear probably.

    He lives in a bubble, and I'm convinced he can not understand as many can't who reside in these bubbles but the guy is quite intelligent, it simply does not apply to his existing occupation anymore.

    Once upon a time his guilds website was THE place for knowing what goes on under the hood of this game, and that was spear headed by Ion himself and we believed we wanted someone like him to take ghostcrawlers chair in the table... However, it turns out that simply because you're really knowledgeable about something does not mean you ought to be in charge of it.

    For example say you have the best doctor in the world in your clinic, or best mechanic in your store or whatever... Why can you stop them from performing that what they are obviously amazing at to do some thing else like running the hospital or store? You would not, so why did people do that with Ion?

    It's not that Ion isn't capable, or intelligent, or he is"playing out of the league"... It is that he is not even playing the same sport anymore. Game manager of a game is not the exact same match as what got him where he is, which is theorycraft understanding and application via numbers.

    You could clearly see patterns in Nathria nerfs when his guild were going for CE. Progressing Generals? Nerfed.There are two realities in which this can happen. They actually have no idea how players will interact with their systems and that they honestly need 6 months of collapse things to come to the exact same conclusion the playerbase came to through Alpha. The cheap WOW Classic TBC Gold second fact is that they're doing it on purpose, they intentionally emphasise QOL changes and obvious improvements in order to artificially extend gametime and enhance performance metrics without actually having to produce new content but instead just making present content take longer.
