    Unless it's sexual harassment or other abusive conduct this is all leftwing liberal crap, I don't care if the male or female is more talented they may not mesh/work well with that team for many reasons other than what sex they are.

    So...they are going to heavily censor all women in the game and make them wear burqas, while the men can still be free and mostly nude at all times?
    Pretty sure they're talking about stuff like this:

    Named after the sex pest most prominently named in the complaints.

    I see what youre going for but the stock price dropped as soon as the news came out. Did you want him to respond to news that didn't exist yet?

    Looks like another wave of sanitization of the game is about to occur. RIP

    Private servers really are the only way to experience undiluted, glory days Warcraft, before all of the content removal and censorship began to happen.

    In-game Changes. We have heard the input from employee and player communities that some of our in-game content is inappropriate. We are removing that content.
    This just in "Cancel Culture" causes all female characters to appear in Muslim-esque style full body coverings when armor is removed...

    Christ on a cracker people..

    Personnel Changes. We are immediately evaluating managers and leaders across the Company. Anyone found to have impeded the integrity of our processes for evaluating claims and imposing appropriate consequences will be terminated
    Well this pretty much seals the deal that Brack will be a sacrificial lamb.

    The shitstorm is only this big because

    • Blizzard has been having PR screwup after PR screwup for the past few years. WoW's gameplay has gone bad, WoW's storyline has gone bad, Overwatch went bad after the first 2 years, HotS was put on life support, D3 expansion cancelled, Starcraft 2 ending, Warcraft 3 was outsourced and neglected and rushed and became a disaster, Diablo Immortal announcement at a convention aimed at hardcore PC gamers who were expecting D4, D4 stuck in development hell, Overwatch 2 stuck in development hell, Blizzard constantly cancelling all of their internal projects and being unable to put out a game, 7 months of WoW without a patch, first Shadowlands patch was mediocre and rushed, the BC classic server split, the constant braindrain of Blizzard old timers, and Blizzard insulting their paying customers. So people are already primed to dislike Blizzard.
    • Blizzard people keep yapping their mouths and throwing each other under the bus, so there is constant news for the media to regurgitate. If no Blizzard employees had commented on the lawsuit, then the lawsuit would've fallen out of news by now, only causing a stir for a couple days last week and then being forgotten.

    So that guy just got discriminated against based on his race or sex. You don't see any problem in that?

    Yes. It's funny that woke people always think that hiring people for their race is a good thing, rather than blatantly degrading and racist.

    I imagine the prostitutes/harem/sex slaves in Black Temple and Hellfire Citadel will be among the first to go.

    I think there absolutely will be some sacrificial lambs, my main concern is that they will be the “wrong” people – and I have seen that before in my industry, and in my previous job in particular. In those cases, those individuals also received golden handshakes, where they were essentially paid to take the fall, and given their strong history in the industry, they walked straight into similar roles, so really, they didn’t sacrifice anything.
    If they are going to fire people, and im 99% sure heads WILL roll, I just hope those kicked out are kicked for the right reasons, and not given a golden handshake on their way out the door.

    It's not discrimination to make sure minorities are getting hired unless you think somehow straight white males haven't had it easier than others in North America and Europe than basically everyone else in the past 200 years. If you think this is the case then go read a history book and stop posting until you've done so and taken proper exams.

    Any book that's accepted by far right pundits though are not acceptable.

    So, racial discrimination is okay if it's done to whitey. Gotcha.

    YAY CANCEL CULTURE WINS AGAIN

    I have no idea what exactly he's talking about, what content is deemed inappropriate? considering I haven't noticed or heard anything that means it's something that hurt the feelings of the liberal butterflies, WAAHH THERE'S NO BLACK ORCS!!!!

    Also paid day off for those walking? so....everyone will now walk to get free money and just go home to play wow, players lose again
    Maybe they'll put Inquisitor Whiteman in a skirt? Or would that be considered misogynistic?

    Who would have known when the stock prize goes massively down after the fire they are going through rn, a Guy who normally is all about only PR bs statements, suddenly actually is not saying the usual PR bs statements, but something that is shocking but a slim sight of Relieve instead. Because his 39 Yacht might actually be in trouble getting purchased.

    John Doe just wants to get a job out of college. He doesn't care about some historical mumbo jumbo. If you deny him a job because he's white and not diverse enough then dknt be surprised at the amount of young men red pilling.

    Not even close. Maybe the Bioware desaster of them failing repeatably with Anthem or Bethesda's FO76, at least in terms of magnitude, but neither were about a subject as hotly debated as A-B right now. Riot and Ubisoft managed to keep a surprisingly low profile about their misdeeds, but they also didn't have the state sue them with alot of detail. Not to mention some of the stuff here was supposedly not even the WoW team, the suicide some say was in one of the activision studios. So these are sprinkled throughout the company.
    MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis.

    If Ion didn't care to make his game fun before as it bled millions of subscribers over the past 5 years (and even mocked his paying customers for it), he won't care now.

    It's also woth saying that this argument of "2 people, equally qualified..."

    Is not very likely to happen. At all. Maybe on paper they can technically be equal. But any interview will quickly dispel such thoughts.

    It's funny, because Afrabsabi isn't even one of the 10 John Does who are the target of the lawsuit. His name being dropped was ancedotal.
