    It's possible Brack was just "there" when the board was looking for a replacement for Morhaime. Outside hires for the job of CEO can be lucrative or damaging, but they certainly tend to be expensive. It could be Activision Blizzard felt safer choosing a company man, especially if they sought someone they could control.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

You don't keep things around just because you can. Some of those jobs were no longer needed and others were restructured.

    It isn't a greedy short term money making perspective. They are looking at the larger picture of creating a healthy company which means sometimes you have to fire people. Wow Revenue isn't reduced and actually increased as they doubled the active players since Q2.

    So the developers at Blizzard are not responsible for designing a bad mechanics? Bad encounters? "bad" anything? It is all the fault of Activision Blizzard because they are the ones who own Blizzard Entertainment? Seriously. That kind of ignorant hate gets you no where in life.
    No, there's false things on yours. I didn't say there was anything wrong in developing for mobile. But making things like Diablo mobile instead of a proper sequel had their result put in front of you. You cannot forget your core fans or the backlash will be real.

    Making short term money is literally short sighted and greedy cause revenue is now gonna drop with the negative receptions from lack of Q&A. Bad quality product, lesser revenue. Backlashes, drop in share prices.

    Blizzard devs share the responsibility, but the resources they have are limited by the parent company, as is what they can work with. The latest WoW patch is proof of that as is warcraft 3 reforged. But no, they are not free of responsibility. Actually, they have a good deal of it. They still act arrogant and ignore fan feedback (in the case of WoW).


    So, i'm really gonna have to cut you off here. You have been falsely accusing others of spreading false narratives, but i present evidence and you continue to in fact to spread yours. I really don't have time to waste on this.

    No there's not a hint of false equivalency. You spew hate, yet you chide a user for stirring hate up himself. You're doing the very thing you accuse someone else of. It's not false equivalency, it's simply you being a hypocrite, a term you could clearly stand to research.

    We can go back and forth, but you clearly think it's ok to call people names, and therein lies the problem. I don't care if it's Trump or anyone else. You're still calling names.

    They were always doing both. They were not developing mobile instead of a proper diablo sequel. You implied it just as you are implying mobile was wrong now.

    Your opinion is not any evidence.

Him looking like a music store worker doesn't help matters.

    And with all that... Blizz has been in a sea of controversy over the past year, with Blitzchung and Warcraft 3 reforged being at the heart of it. Brack's apologies have been... underwhelming, to say the least. So what did Morhaime or anyone else see in this guy to be president of Blizzard?
    Almost, yes almost some are for different reasons, all the issues can be blamed on community only reading headlines or watching youtubers who spur the hate train like Bellular who talks a lot of wrong shit so lets break it down. His apologies i think were fine, honestly with the foaming at the mouth community that we have, there's absolutely nothing he could say to make people happy without basically committing suicide for the company.

    800 Employees Fired & New executive hired: Most of those employees were from the people doing support for Destiny which blizzard didn't need, they then shifted funds to hiring more developers. They DID NOT report record profits like Bellular said and it was record revenue and no company is going to keep an entire dept that has no use in the company anymore. The new executive was not paid 10million like again Bellular and other gaming media said, and was making actually way less than the norm for that position just look up the bloomberg article for the correct information.

    Blitzchung: That whole situation was actually caused by netease because they deal with blizzard tournaments and other things in that region of the world also Blitzchung broke the rules, he knew the ramifications and the streamers also knew what was going on not trying to stop it. Blizzard only backed up their partner but it all blew up in their face but Blizzard PR has been shit for years so whatever on this one

    WC3R: You want to know why this shit happened with this game? because they fucked themselves. Many people don't understand that by creating pre-orders it makes a hard deadline on the games release. if they dont hit it, they're legally forced to refund everyone's money automatically and of course accounting dept would never want that. So they stayed with buggy product with big updates coming down the road. it honestly needed maybe another 6months to be feature complete

    Facts dude but the community foaming at the mouth ready to pounce on blizz because they didn't announce d4 that year and didnt give a fuck if it was obvious that D4 was being worked on but wasnt ready yet. Its very simple if people actually used their brains for 2 secs but alas....i think people like to get outraged over dumb shit nowadays

    We have to assume he performed much fellatio to get where he is because as far as I can tell he is just a shill like the rest of the leadership.

    Anybody can purchase shares. There are also plenty of other options then posting on this site.

    His apologies remind me of those South Park episodes based off the BP Oil Spill mocking the CEO's apologies lol.
