[EG]Blizzard may hire World of StarCraft man

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Quote:
StarCraft II modder Ryan Winzen's life may be about to turn upside down: Blizzard has told Eurogamer it will consider offering him a job – if he's good enough.
His creation, World of StarCraft, puts the assets of StarCraft II into a World of Warcraft mould. A gameplay video shows a character selection screen as the demonstrator flicks through the available class options. The footage also shows a group battling monsters in the StarCraft II world. Action is third-person, as in WOW, and the requisite health bars and skill bars of an MMO user interface are present.

Promo stunt to make up for their prior dbaginess and utter disregard of modders, or genuine interest? hmm...

This title is deceiving, they dont say they are, or might.

It is ONE guy talking about the mod/modder. And he says that this guy may be a complete doucher which wouldnt get him anywhere.

Title of this thread needs revision.

The whole article was quote after quote, what a horrible site, can we stop linking Eurogamer and there horrible posting formats and writers?

Blizz was never mean to this kid, just stopped him because he named his mod after it and Blizz didn't like it, which is 100% acceptable.

Waste of a article.

Umm... what?

A good article usually has a lot of quotes. I saw nothing wrong with it. I don't see it misrepresenting anything. Perhaps you just read too many reviews?

The middle of the article is a bunch of quotes strung together. A few of the paragraphs don't even have end quotes. You can't write a news article that way. You might as well just publish an interview.

You have to give the reader the information in a concise manner. Meaning articles with quotes have a lot of meat in them, but the writer has to at least cook the meat before they serve it to the reader.

A day after the story broke he was discussing his direct communications with Blizzard. This is how video game development works. If you've got the chops, they could care less about your background.
