    "Ruining its history"

    Thanks for proving my point on my last line that I wrote. I wrote it for people like you.

    Did I mention "Fall out"? Or did I say "World of Warcraft"? Listening skills.

    The story being centered around stereotypical alpha males, to name the obvious biggest one.
    Oversexualization of (most) female models.
    Racist, homophobic, transphobic and otherwise hateful content (which is now getting removed).

    Overall, WoW has been the epitome of the "white muscular man owns the world" political agenda. Again, you have not noticed that, because you think that's the default state of how things should be. It's not. Welcome to the real world.

    My guess about the changes is that is doesn't have as much to do with twitter than the terrible environment some of Blizzard employees had to live in.

    If you had to endure sexual harassment for some time and all the sudden get the chance to act there's a good chance you'll overreact.
    Personally I don't like a few of those changes but it's a small sacrifice if it makes those, who currently build the game, a bit happier with their work/life.

    Oh yeah. This thread is going places :-P

    Right off the bat I know what you are. You have a problem with men being men? Too bad.
    You mean women dressing like women? Because Hollyweird and style hasn't promoted women to wear short shorts and tight clothes?

    Because women who are beautiful might want to show off their hard work? Sounds like you're out of shape and just offended that you couldn't accomplish what they spent years trying to accomplish. Being fit.

    Racist? Where? Homophobic? Where? TRANSPHOBIC? Where?

    No. None of it was offensive. People thought it was funny when they saw it...and then moved on with their lives. The only people who have a problem with it are the woke people that the OP is expressing his concern over. People like you.

    If you weren't such a Heterophobe you'd see how bigoted you come across. And how you simply made things up to be angry about. But...woke is gonna woke.

    You can raise your concerns.

    Your concerns are just wrong and you're angrier about a picture on the wall than you are about the gameplay being trash.
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.

    What cult am I defending? I wasn't aware that not bowing down to the woke cult community made me a "cultist". Funny how the very people who have built a cult around cancelling anybody they don't like or agree with...has the nerves to call anybody else "cult members".

    The only snowflakes...are the people demanding that names, faces, and voices be changed or cancelled...because they got their woke feelings hurt.

    I find it fucking funny. If I see a game that doesn't have my interest, I leave it. Shit like Black Panther, or femenist movies.
    I have no problem with them existing.

    Whats funny is that people KNOWINGLY go into a game that OFFENDS them then cry about it instead of finding something else they actually enjoy.

    These people are the lowest life forms within society akin to parasites infesting everything.

    Exactly, the fuck is this dumb reverse psychology. "Haha noooo you're the snowflake because you get mad we change something that hurted our feelings" how does that shit even work?

    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.
