    okay bye, thanks for making the community less hostile with you leaving, one less lonely man that lashes out like a child when they don't get what they want

    this is you but bereft of any self awareness.
    Huh? But did i say it didnt have those things? Or did I just say it lacks diversity, funnily enough?

    You mean like a product they're paying for?
    I don't see how it helps to put any of this on the customers. They didn't create this internal shitstorm at blizzard. A paying customer has every right to feel displeased when they're not getting their money's worth.
    Fix the fucking toxic workplace, that solves the problem. None of it is on the customer.

    Again, not what he said. People really need to stop with this dishonesty. Context is key and you obviously ignored it completely to make this BS statement.

    which isn't inherently good in and of it's self. not to derail the topic with the inconvenient facts that japan has an incredibly xenophobic and right wing culture which NO ONE in their right mind to venerate least of all someone who doesn't even live there.


    like, what the fuck does this have to do with Blizzard fostering a toxic work environment??? this is insane. this whole diatribe where we suck off Japan for how racist and sexist they are only leads me to think you're okay with it so long as they make UWU gatcha games.

    >Afrasiabi NPC removed
    >they messed up royally with the Nonamebridge NPC textures
    >still it took them one day to remove Afrasiabi's name from the game
    Kekn't.

    Congratulations, Actiblizzard. You are now no better than communistic dictators of the past. They, too, anxiously tried to purge their predecessor's references from history.
    Tell me: Who The Heck Are You to do what you just did? Majority of those who screamed bloody murder in vote for Afrasiabi's quest ender NPC haven't even been around back in those days.
    But that isn't even the worst part of it all. What you did was not a solution. It was an affront. To both common sense and baseline logic. Because even if there was some abuse or harassment or abuse etc., you didn't expose and resolve the issue. Instead, you chose to keep clear out of trouble.
    You literally tried to Deny Any Relation. Relation to Afrasiabi, to this so-called 'harassment'. to anything. I'm quite certain that if you had any legislation, you would incarcerate him the moment all this crap hit the proverbial fan even before he would be officially declared guilty by a court.

    By removing that NPC with whom nobody even interacts these days you tried to sweep Afrasiabi's name away from your ranks and out of the game itself. You acted upon an instinct: a reflex To Deny It Ever Happened, in any means necessary. What a coincidence: this course of action is exactly the one that many Western governments prefer to enact every now and then these days.

    You are a joke. And what you did was a disgrace.

    But you seem to be quite adept at embarrassing yourselves these days. So... yeah. Congratulations. Task Failed Successfully.

    SDo, these entitled customers screaming at those who were victims to "get back to work" take no blame?

    yeah that behavior is a part of the problem.

    No, they take no blame. They pay for a product, that is where their involvement ends. This is an internal blizzard problem.
    the customers may say stupid things in anger but still, none of this is on them.

    Yes they are racist, sexist and xeniphobic, and they make better games. So blizzard saying they're going to do more diversity hiring does not bode well for their games. This isn't very hard to follow dude.

    But yes, being liberal, I'm ok with people being whatever they want. Be it far left or far right.

    okay, I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to take away from this interaction beyond what a strange racist you are.

    you're not a liberal. just a racist reactionary.

    Cuustomers are literally going after victims of abuse and demand they get back to work and give them "muh content" which ultimately makes it even harder for those people to do their job. They absolutely do get part of the blame. Stop making excuses for that behavior.

    Shame your humility is not up there as well.

    You asked for a logical reason as to why the majority of people who are the best for a specific job might be predominantly white males. I gave you a possible logical reason, that is very likely to be true for game development and IT in general.

    If you disagree feel free to explain why, but considering we're not even discussing a particular case, unless you know the expected values and that they discredit the logical reason I described, they're irrelevant.

    Blacks can be racist too, you know. Nowhere in the definition does it say the word minority:

    a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one's own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.

    you're not a liberal. just a racist reactionary.
    I told you the definition of a reactionary is a rejection of liberalization, and I feel people are free to be racist or whatever. And i'm not racist because i don't think people should be, just that they can. You're the one being a reactionary to be honest
