After some heads rolled at Blizzard in the past, including the previous president J. Allen Brack had to go, Mike Ybarra and Jen Oneal were made the new co-leaders of the game developer. WoW fans are pinning their hopes for a better World of Warcraft on Ybarra. Unlike many others in Blizzard's executive suite, Ybarra is one of the MMORPG's players - and it's not just some pseudo-gaming. After all, Ybarra spends many evenings in very high-level Mythic-Plus dungeons.

But to better understand all facets of the game, he also hangs out in other content. For example, he's now even been spotted in LFR with his warrior, where he persevered to the end despite many, many wipes. Of course, he was immediately recognized by some players who later shared about it on reddit as well. Mike Ybarra joined the conversation himself and revealed, among other things, why he still visits the LFR despite his 248 item level:

  • Mike Ybarra: "I do LFR to see how it is for players and to meet people."

This statement in the forum caused very positive reactions. Because up until now, you always had the feeling that the upper management at Blizzard has long since lost the bond with their players. A Hazzikostas or a Brack who spends his evenings in the LFR just to see what kind of problems these kind of players encounter there? Hard to imagine, actually.

Ybarra once again had to stress that he was not responsible for the development of WoW (buy now 14,99 € )

, but some players safely ignored this. And perhaps rightly so. Because even if Ion Hazzikostas still has the last word in WoW, the opinion of Mike Ybarras might have some weight.Support buffed - it only takes a minute. Thank you!
