This guy. I always think of that South Park episode where Spielberg and Lucas are raping Indiana Jones, but instead its Metzen raping SC, WarCraft and Diablo.

What are the chances Blizzard goes out and gets a better writer?

Pretty much any person they get off the street will do worlds better than this washed up alcoholic.

I really enjoyed the style of his early artwork (http://www.sonsofthestorm.com/gallery.php?artist=metzen). Another blizzard legend leaving the company. Not many original guys left at this point :(

the warcraft 2 and starcraft manuals still have some of my favourite art. At blizzcon they had this art gallery area with a bunch of his old works
