    What are you talking about? It looks perfectly modern for WoW. Now, Bananas on the other hand is a true relic of the past.

    It's not here in the US either yet. My guess is later this morning when others are at work.

    Way to go to the people who with me choose to support a good cause!

    And we even got two pets out of it. Well, everyone did even though some wined about other people instead.

    Good job, everyone helped activision write off a mill in tax credit. Time for the celebrations.

    You guys really manage to be mad about getting 2 pets and having a million dollars go to one of the best non profits that exists.

    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.

    You do know they can't write off any of it right? All the donations went straight through charity's website.

    I never quite understood how that works.. isn't it only shady when a company donates to a charity they have an investment in? Like donating to the local church which you then get a construction contract for.

    Remember when they start this? The CEO of blizzard gave himself a $200M bonus and laid off hella people? But yayyyy $1M raised!! (just donate straight to doctors without boarders so they get all the money)

    I would never donate through this dogshit company to get them some positive reputation, but rather just donate straight to the doctors. This company is in the sewers, it smells and reeks of shit, I'm actually ashamed I'm still subbed to this company.
    If only FFxiv didn't have crap user interface, and with the addon ecosystem wow have, I would probably switch real fast. But everything in that game just makes me wanna puke. It looks great in ctrl+z mode

    That is what happened. It didn't go through Blizzard. It doesn't count as a tax write-off unless they also donated. They don't get to take a cut. It wasn't even hosted on a Blizzard website.

    It went straight to the charity - the page was merely branded with some of Blizzards assets.

    Anyone that donated can count it towards their own tax write-off. If Blizzard donated, they'd be able to do that too, but since it was a whole bunch of individuals, each of those individuals can use their donation as a tax write-off (read your local and national legislation for specifics).

    You know if you guys spent less time shitting on Blizzard you'd know this is exactly how this charity works. You cannot give Blizzard any money nor can they write off any of it.
