I wish Ben Brode the best for the future. I know he has been the brunt of criticism from some in the community and the hearthstone fandom in general, some of it which has been very unsavoury, however he always came across as a very nice guy with a lot of charisma and an unmistakable laugh. The introduction to new expansions in general will not feel quite the same without him. I wish the guy the very best.
Hire Kibler, Day9, and Dane (to head up Wild balancing naturally).
They would be great, though I think Day9 is a bit too much on the silly side and Kibler too much on the serious side. But also, they just hired one of the most funny and intelligent people from the Hearthstone scene, so here's hoping Chakki will get some camera time together with his job on the final design team.
