    Sorry. But their are some of us who love the mounts. The game is already stale as fuck cause they can barely give us new abilities to play with on the classes. Same o shit for 2 expansions in a row (4 Years). And when we do get something new on a spec, it is something soooooooooooo damn shitty that they could have kept it on paper.
    People on this thread only get pissed at you when you don't agree with them...FACT

    Wait. Blizzard used it's reach and platform to help raise money for a good cause and that's a bad thing?
    Damn, the Activision hate is blinding in this thread.

    His bonus was $40M is stocks options, then the stock rose $5 shortly after making it worth $200M. But $200M is better clickbait.

    Go on, complain about Bob Kotick. It has absolutely nothing to do with this event. Hey, imagine if this event was 1.5 years ago, then you could have complained about "how dare you give money to this and not FREE HONG KONG???".

    Complaining about things like this makes Blizzard see our feedback as garbage.
    To be fair, since most feedback drips of vitriol and hyperbole like this stuff, they know it's mostly garbage.

    They weren't asking those without though. Just because they put this up didn't mean they wanted those without the means to donate to donate. Weird way to think. And seriously many more were not financially impacted than were.

    You are donating. Not Activision, this is the first one where players donate directly. We get to write it off our taxes, not blizzard.
    Of course you don't cause I know for a fact you didn't donate or else you would know this but for the rest of us we do.

    I mean he did just give 1.6 million in January. And also donates through his own program for veterans every so often but those don't get announced so.
    Dude does a fair bit of charity work.

    They know. They don't care.

    It's how the world works. They say the lie, people eat it up and run, then when the explaining about how they are wrong happens the audience is gone. If you're explaining, you're losing. It's how populists get into power.

    NO they don't. What part of the "pet is free" do you not understand? They aren't making ANY money off of this pet.

    Which part of "indirectly" hard to understand? To claim the pet you need active subscription...Seriously it is not quantumphysics...

    he's implying that the 5 minutes to log onto Retail and claim the pet is making Blizzard $$$

    Do you need an active subscription though? You can purchase (claim) it on the website and all it says is you claim it to your battle.net account. You need to log in to use it but that doesn't indirectly make money since people would be subscribed anyways. Very few people will subscribe just so they can see the pet in-game with their own eyes. Even then they likely could use a starter account to see other people with it.

    There is no money directly or indirectly being made by Blizzard (or Activision Blizzard). Stop looking for reasons to hate or justify the hate with silly leaps.

    The tax evasion Activision Blizzard engage in is staggering and nakedly crooked, and they treat their workforce with contempt. You people make me fucking puke.

    Then maybe stay away from a fan site where you'll encounter those types of people? Weird concept right? You'll always probably hate to know that Bobby Kotick just donated $4 million dollars to the University of Michigan to create a tenured professor position for their new e-sports program. The school expects to be offering a minor in e-sports as soon as the 2022-23 school year.
