    [​IMG]We got a new Diablo 3 CM a couple of weeks ago, and this week we lost one of the long-time CMs. And not to a transfer to another Blizzard game, this time. Here are the relevant recent quotes from Grimiku's twitter.

    I've written another blog! Check out the cosplay round-up for #BlizzCon 2015. :D http://blizz.ly/1WSsuX3

    I won't get into the details, but I am now unemployed. It won't stop my Fallout 4 stream tonight, though. Let's get drunk.

    Thanks everyone. I'm getting ready to fire up my Fallout 4 stream. Come by, drink with me, and let's hang out. http:

    Thanks for the well wishes, everyone. I'm already getting things done, and will be streaming more since it's naturally therapeutic. /twitter.com/3Stonekegs/status/664644435586580480[/source]

    According to a commenter, Grimiku mentioned earlier this week on his stream that he was heading in for a performance review. I guess it didn't go so well? At any rate, condolences to the former Diablo 3 CM, and good luck to him in his future endeavors. At least now he no longer has to pretend to care when people bitch that class/build X is buffed/nerfed unfairly!

    Maybe he got fired because he actually started responding to console D3 threads. He was very active in that forum before the end. It was probably frowned upon, and I say that mostly because Blizzard appears to be completely ignoring all the game-destroying issues they've created for themselves in the console version. Now that forum will go completely dark again. :(

    Well, I've quit jobs after "performance" reviews in my lifetime. He probably wasn't fired. Just told Blizzard to f*** off.

    Yep, when you work hard only to have manager (often new guy) try to exert dominance via performance review the general response it to tell them where to put it.

    I would rather live in a country where you can fire people. I don't want ineffective coworkers.
