    Angry Why didn't Katrina get a pet from blizzard?

    I find it really funny blizzard didn't make a pet for the Katrina storm. But yet they made one for that earthquake in Asia.

    Bit late to debate that now, isn't it? Wasn't Katrina 2005?

    Was the pet store up when Katrina happened?

    Wasn't WoW still in Vanilla at the time of Katrina? Long before the first Blizzard Store pet was introduced?

    Greg Street doesn't care about black people.

    OT: It's different now. They really didn't sell much of anything on the store back then as far as in-game items went.

    Why isn't there a sandy one? I mean sandy was one hell of a storm and is the second most costly hurricane.

    did they even have those toys back that far?

    The Blizz store didn't exist then. I'm not even sure WoW was a year old when katrina happened. So what's your point OP? Trying to stir up trouble for nothing?

    Is this a silly attempt to say blizzard care more about none American customers than American customers? When in fact it's more likely to be the reverse of that? :S

    World of Warcraft Launch: November 23, 2004
    Hurricane Katrina Formed: August 23, 2005

    Notice how, Blizzard, while still a successful company at the time, were nowhere near where they are today. Also notice that the Pet store or anything like it (Money for in-game items) was nowhere near "out" at the time of the Hurricane.

    More importantly, note that Blizzard is a company, not a charity, and while it is very generous of them to do things like this, it is in no way their obligation.

    Which was only because they had just made the kitten anyway, so they decided to make a charity drive out of it.

    I really want to do a Kayne West joke here, but I fear it wouldn't be viewed as light hearted humor\sarcasm and I don't want to get banned for it.

    But just google Kayne and George Bush and replace Bush with Blizzard in his rant.

    Im still outraged that they didn't make one for the victims of the Union Carbide Bhopal disaster.

    The answer is quite obvious, Blizzard are american hating commies, I mean thats the only explanation, right OP?

    Infact, Blizzard as a company is simply a front for anti-American pro-Commie activities, their whole scheme is to get your money to fund the Chinese war machine through what they claim is for relief efforts.
