Chris Metzen Interview on Fan Toxicity, Dissatisfaction and More




 

The Instance’s Scott Johnson is back with another interview with now retired Blizzard story guru and chief world and story builder Chris Metzen. Their first interview was truly great and covered the circumstances surrounding Chrises departure, the pressure of working on Titan and eventual panic attacks and anxiety that caused.

This time around the focus is on negative fan reactions to various media, starting with the extreme nature of fan backlash against the Last Jedi. As you’d expect that leads into the criticism and laying of blame surrounding the very recent Sylvanas short/Teldrassil burning and how people targeted Christie Golden and the story team in general.

Unsurprisingly he isn’t too happy about how the reactions played out and the manner in which fans reacted to the story, without having known how it all actually comes together, as well as the way in which they targeted the story team. Also he’s totally team Saurfang and wants to see Sylvanas go down, but doesn’t have any inside info on how the entire story plays out.

It’s another really great interview and well worth a full listen for this veteran/legend’s perspective on fan backlash to stories he didn’t have anything to do with, so make sure you dedicate some time to it!

And here’s the statue Blizzard made for him after he retired, just to remind us of what an amazing contribution the man had both in Blizzard and our own lives as well.
