    Why would you want to put a strawman in your signature?

    She has nearly two decades of experience, five years of which were running a studio with over 200 employees. Sounds pretty competent to me.

    Because it isn't a strawman, and you know it, no matter the amount of alt right tropes you can spit out.

    She's practically the best Blizzard can resort to, at least in the current circumstances.

    That won't stop him from bullying that other poster. He's making it personal, for reasons, and I'm disappointed the mods haven't stepped in yet. But considering how often that seems to be allowed here these days...whatever. Just ignore it. Best you can do.

    Yeah. Just going back and watching her interview with Geoff Keighley for the THPS1+2 reveal and it seems to me like she's exactly the kind of person you'd want in charge of stuff at Blizzard right now, especially given recent sentiments about WoW's direction in particular. She's made her bones revitalizing fan favorite properties.

Women can and are even sexist towards other women.
    Yeah, no, thats not how it works. Your side made up that rule, I'm free to abuse the shit out of it. If you have a problem with that, write a formal complaint to the republicans.

    Time to come up with some new material, sunshine.
    It still gets a rise out of triggered special snowflake culture warriors, so its a good meme. Your argument is like saying Bladerunner is bad because its an old movie. Who gives a fuck, its still a great movie.

    Brack did not quit. He was given the option to quit. And putting the other two into the leadership position and splitting it between two people....pure tokenism.

    It is real, but actual misandry is a real niche concept. Like, do you believe that Madeleine Roux is an actual man-hater and anti-white racist in real life or is it more likely that her comments specifically dudebros of the gamergate breed, while having perfectly healthy and respectful relationships with most men who are not sexist trash?

    Otherwise, as a feminist, everyone who is an actual misandrist, not just an edgy shitposter, will be considered kind of a bitch or an asshole. Terfs are actual unironic misandrists and everyone on feminist and leftist circles utterly hates these people, thats what the JK Rowling shitshow is all about.

    I actually don't have much confidence there will be actual change within the game. What should change for the customers to be happy, from what I mostly gathered over the years and what is currently transpiring. Including some of my opinions...

    - Systems have been complained about for two expansions.
    Remove it and the promotion of player gap that accompanies it. (If they are adamant about this. Which not everyone will be agreeable with it.. I already suggested a good way to make the hamster wheel look more appealing. Even to casuals.)

    - Give back an actual reward structure for raiding or activities in general.
    Which is cosmetics, mounts, etc. (things you can actually carry with you to other expansions..not ilvl) Makes replayablity in the long run too. The new raid let us get more neat transmogs for weapons. Way overdue...Yet they didn't let us have legendary bow drop on LFR. (You have the capability to fix that Blizzard before the last wing releases btw and give incentive for current players to stay engaged in LFR.)

    - Decent story.
    I don't expect the most groundbreaking material. I expect them not to be insinuating the message of hatred and division. (Along with provoking the fans) Give the right message. Also to stop making a mockery out of certain characters out of animosity for the community, or the direction from up above, whatever is going on there... (Some fans have been sincerely offended lately)

    I can't anticipate leisure activities back or big group activities (A long with a nice PVP one on level of Ashran) until next expansion..realistically I would assume.

    I did like another players opinion of an apology hotfix as fans have been upset for a much longer time. I have offered minimalist solutions. One that is included in this post about letting the legendary bow drop in LFR. Also release a lot of rewards in Torghast. I can't say that will make up of years of years upon of negligence or people feeling offended. It's just something to keep current players around to play the content. That is currently available to them.

    Let's see if the sabotage of this IP is truly gone when new people fill up these roles within the company. Or if it will still be there.

    It doesn't matter what the reasoning is. Being sexist is always disgusting. Would you likewise defend a man who spouted degrading comments about women but had "healthy" relationships with some women?

    Outside of hiring better writers and don't creat messes by banking on fan theories and mysteries for engagement, these are horrible ideas. Normal Modes are nowadays easily accessible through the LFG tool and tend to often be quicker than LFGs. Systems are not the problem, their implementation often is. The problem with the Covenant system right now is predominantly that anima was by far to obnoxious to get and that they tie cosmetic rewards to player power, which is bad.

    Otherwise I would guess a return to titanforged probably would be actually a good idea to appease the majority of players and return to the formate of Legion, which was the most popular and well received expansion of the more modern iteration of World of Warcraft. I think when it comes to casual players, making m+ just harder and harder with each expansion and making World Quests more tedious and less rewarding are bigger issues, besides the difficulty of older expansion raids.

    I mean isn't being anti-feminist another way of saying you're a retard?

    Let them be judged by the quality of the content that is to come . The change is obviously made to ease the ongoing tension , although i dont think is enough to make the staff put things aside and work on wow like all is well. I`m not one of those people who like to yell "wow is going to die" but if the next couple of patches including the next expansion are going to be as bad as the current , i doubt wow has much life left .

    So all this time some of the devs had gamergate brain worms? That explains the increase in toxicity over the past decade. The poison "trickles down" from the top after all.

    It will be interesting to see how (or if) the game improves as a result of everything going on. In the meantime, FF14 is great so who knows if it even matters anymore.
