    Because not treating women like a sexual object = woke

    Don't worry, I'm sure you'll still be able to dress your character in black mageweave to get o....to dress up.

    I expect them to go much too far with it.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Warlock succubus is replaced. Say goodbye to the concubines in BT, skimpy outfits might even be redesigned or outright removed.

    Pretty gross that half the people complaining are saying “sure there was rampant sexual harassment at blizzard, even driving one woman to suicide, but what about ME and MY HORNY?”

    I’m glad I’m gone, these players are just as disgusting as the execs.

    Oh noes! How will we ever survive without a sexy succubus and sexy concubines!? It just won't be the same game at all Well, you might as well quit now before they rip away your reason for playing.

    Not true. Retail has been changed but this was taken not too long ago. Classic & TBC both show this....

    It's just silly how many people raged over them simply covering up Sylvanas' midsection.

    Bad screenshot when the day and date are wrong. As far as Blizzard going to far, I don't think they will go far enough. They have shown blatant disregard to things such as this throughout the history of the game and will do cursory things like removing references to Afrasiabi in public areas, but they will most likely leave other references to him in places like Stratholme.

    I got the day of the week wrong as I thought today was Friday not Thursday. The date (July 29, 2021) and the time (2:36pm) were correct for when I took it in game on the TBC server and then checked the Classic server which also still had him there. The retail version has been changed to Field Marshal Stonebridge a female human as seen in the picture below. The NPC id of 14721 was changed to the new name and sites like wowhead have the name changed automatically as reflected on their site if you search for "Field Marshal Afrasiabi" and can see comments for "Field Marshal Stonebridge" dating back to 2009 and referencing Afrasiabi not Stonebridge.

    It's obvious that they didn't want any of this to leak out, which is why they got rid of him in silent (while alot of people were leaving he company anyway) and changing his NPCs would have immediately triggered questions. That just shows you how hollow Blizzard's approach to the whole issue is.
    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 comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users, instead of playing the game they claim to enjoy so much?

    Yeah but we knew he was a scum bag for yrs now even before the leaks and the firing. It became the meme everytime Blizzard took a lazy morale stance on something he was constantly brought up..

    I mean, it's not like this will even happen. Some people are acting like anything vaguely "sexual" is being removed, instead of ingame references to one specific person. They seem kinda torn between their hatred for Blizzard and "woke" people supposedly ruining the game. I almost sympathize, it must be tough to be that far gone.

    Plus the succubi had their model changed... a decade ago? I don't even remember, it's been so long.

    I don't really know what this thread is referring to, the only thing that immediately comes to mind that's directly his influence is Afrasiabi's character and snuff box in Stratholme.

    edit: Here we go, there's the full list. Some of these I had no idea he had anything to do with, all of them very minor appearances. https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Alex_Afrasiabi

    I read at another thread that /spit emote has been removed from Classic. May be part of this, whatever this is.
    WoW forums in a nutshell:
    m8 i've been around since Feb 2005, I know it all.
    i outgrew the games playerbase.
    So I was using a gold dupe hack. I don't know why i was banned for this. It is so unfair.
    People need an incentive to play content. "Its fun!" is simply not enough.
    Btw iam multi glad so plz dont tell me how to play, kkthxbye

    I mean the emote has been the staple of poor sportsmanship for 17 years. I don't even know why it's in the game tbh, but then you can also call someone a whoreson (or moterhless ogre, as a poor stand in) as well, so the emote standards were never that great. There is also /rude which is essentially just a "go fuck yourself" gesture. Some cospiracy theories claim it was removed to spite Asmongold because he supposedly made spitting on store mount owners a thing.
    MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.

    Cleaning up bad references is fine but anything they choose to put to a purity test in terms of content is probably gonna be too far, especially for a sixteen year old game where people already hate most of the new shit

    The /spit emote is in the testing of being disabled due to people acting like idiots around other players who managed to make a purchase of a product. It is around a problem that everyone on the Classic project servers should've foreseen from the start, yet still, outrage and aggression. Spamming and harassment.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Seems I am to repost my topic on this broken and derailed thread...

    This is the company that banned overwatch players for picking the wrong hero. Thought a shared xp bar in hots with no FF option was a good idea as well as the company who allowed LFG and Trade chat to be overrun with boosting services for years now but only got off their ass to protect whales who buy mounts.

    I am worried that in blizzards reactionary move to try and scapegoat the playerbase for "toxicity" we are going to see harmful changes that effect play.
