Having a discussion with a friend of mine. There's a location in Jade Forest called "Tiger Wood". We both agree that it's a reference to Tiger Woods, the famous golf guy.
However, he's arguing that Tiger Woods should somehow have paid Blizzard 40K+ euros for them to name the location after him, as an advertisement.
I'm arguing that it's merely a small reference and that no one would ever pay that much to have their name (just their name, nothing else) featured like that. Especially because it's only one persons name, and not an entire brand or anything.
He's also saying that Blizzard should have contacted Tiger Woods specifically for this and signed a contract.
All this sounds extremely unlikely, and while I know I'm right, I wanted to show him the responses to this thread to convince him as well.
So - who is right?
(My apologies if this is better suited for Fun Stuff - was in doubt, as it fits both places)
