    I think Blizzard just committed suicide...

    https://www.businessinsider.com/bliz...rce=reddit.com

    that story is top post on reddit right now, pretty much every activision/blizzard related subreddit is on fire, users are going apeshit and other publishers and devs are piling on to grab players from whatever competing title they can.

    Edit: blizzard's official subreddit has been closed, /r/activision every post is pretty much some variation of eat shit and die.

    I doubt people will boycot WoW, HS, CoD and Diablo to such a degree Blizzard has to anger China.

    Shortterm loss, longterm blowover.

    Done.

    yeah but if they take a hard enough hit in the short term activision will take away whatever's left of their autonomy, and activision is no better at keeping acquired studios alive than EA is.

    There are better card games than HS and current WoW is trash, Diablo immortal is a joke and the Blizzard games that people are most excited for are WoW classic of 15 years ago and Warcraft 3 of 17 years ago

    I was a huge blizzard fanboy back in the day but I cannot help being disillusioned. From the people I know who work and worked there, they do not even treat the employees fairly. So fuck em. They are just a trash company nowadays and I do not feel bad for missing out on their future products.

    He'd have been banned from most sports tournaments for doing that, not least one that's just a marketing gimmick.

    It's a sad state of affairs that Tencent having 5-6% (correct me if wrong) of their shares has this much pull. Also makes total sense from bussiness perspective, Diablo: Immortal is millions to be made considering chineese spending habits in mobile titles. Which sums up what Blizzard is and what their priorites are atm. It was dead when Roper left.

    China might be a big market, but how much money does it spend on games per head?
    Don't see how this cannot be a bad thing for Blizzard. SJW'ing is big in these troubled times.
    The Epic Store is amazing, I've been able to save so much money by not buying their games.

    More that what western audience does surprisingly. Splurging on mobile games is a legit status thing there and for some only 'luxury' they can afford and spend on.

    This is all Nixon's fault. China should have remained embargoed til they collapsed. Instead, the west decided to fund an oppressive regime. Oh well, at least the corporations are making tons of profit now.

    Also the sensibilities of the Chicom dosen't allow bones or gore in their games.
