Don't make excuses for Murdy... especially not after how half-a$$ed last year's event was. If it was up to Murdy it'd ONLY be mazes that would allow to him to brag about which celebrity he met, hung out with etc... Just like Aiello is not HHN God, neither is Murdy.
We get it. You have some vendetta for Murdy and last year was half-assed and blah blah blah. Based on the style of that trailer, it's obvious that this was a decision from the higher-ups and I'm sure even John wasn't too thrilled about it. Hell, even reading his interactions on Twitter with fans about IPs they wanted to see, like Scream, IT, and The Conjuring, you could tell he was frustrated about not being able to obtain the rights to those in-demand properties. Obviously not every maze is gonna be a gem; Hell, even execution of new, sought-after properties can be terrible (2013). But it's just naive and stupid to assume that once Murdy does leave, things are automatically gonna change for the better, and the event is gonna be a dream come true for the die-hards on this forum. Because even though he may leave, we'll still be stuck with the corporate-level guys who push these IPs on the event, as well as their other antics.
