Blizzard still whipping up a storm?

Hey all,

A few months ago I decided to give up on WoW after many years and move on with my life ... this lasted a few months and I'm now not only subscribed to WoW again I have signed my life away to a 12-month contract to get a free Diablo III (and some other fluff) and re-installed my Starcraft 2.

I am well and truly back in Blizzards pocket but I hear a lot of chatter around the 'net saying Blizzard has lost their way, particularly with the new 'Mists of Pandaria' expansion.

What do you guys think? Are Blizzard still whipping up a storm or are they now just simply a snow flurry?
