    Oh thanks god, I need to work on them social score points, so ActiBlizz computer will say yes to representing me in their games.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    If they really "took feedback to heart" we'd be seeing a lot of different things from the company. Housing? Deaf ears. CoD abandoning WZ in favor of traditional maps? Deaf ears. A new starcraft? Deaf ears... etc etc

    Also, would they support diversity in taiwan or hong kong? or is it just for us lowly westerners?

    I think we ALL know what the answer to that is. I'm likely going to be banned for even talking about it and pointing it out. You aren't allowed to point out that you are being pushed out of the things that Our ancestors created for us.
    In the meantime, we have to uplift every other race while constantly having to demean and destroy ours. Kalergi plan.

    Just look at every single IP they have touched and ask yourselves. Is it better? Or did they destroy the IP by bringing in their left wing politics? The answer at this point with this left wing activism and radicalism is obvious. Even their own radicals can't deny they are doing it anymore because it is so out in the open. Remember, diversity simply means "chasing down the last white person". Because "diversity" of race is ONLY applied ONE WAY and to reduce the numbers of ONE race.
    Even liberals hate this stupid thing. Stop confusing "Corperate PR bullshit" with reality.

    Stop falling for rainbow capitalism.

    Do they though? According to the article this tool was developed by devs in their spare time out of their own volition.
    The absolute state of Warcraft lore in 2021:
    Kyrians: We need to keep chucking people into the Maw because it's our job.
    Also Kyrians: Why is the Maw growing stronger despite all our efforts?

    SJW dont like this either. This was made first and foremost as a PR tool. Stop being so easily misled by rainbow capitalism.

    Correct. That doesn't go against what I said or was pointing out. This was not "Made by devs in their spare time" it was a purpuseful effort by activision by their own admission.

    Yes, they f*cking do. What normal person likes to see creative freedom replaced with corporate bs? This happens time and time again when x author cannot write a character a certain way because y group will be unhappy, this goes for any political spectrum. It takes out the humanity of art. This tool literally operationalizes traits and misses the point of empathy.

    Remember when everybody else said, for years, that wokeness is basically treating diversity and identity politics like a points system?

    And SJWs insisted that was crazy and totally not what they're advocating?

    And then they wrote software to literally calculate how many diversity points someone has?

    I'm all for diversity, inclusiveness, and representation, and if the tool works to help create more characters that are well-written and diverse before they're exposed to me, then that's awesome. As far as my part as a consumer of media goes, it really doesn't matter too much to me how many iterations of 'not diverse enough' a cast of characters goes through before the final iteration is exposed to me, as long as the end result is well-written and tastefully presented. But just the knowledge that the tool is present and potentially influencing that media before it gets to me is a little... odd. I don't know how to describe it properly.
    Most people don't really hold personal or well thought out morals and only surface level "good" or "bad".

    It's how humanity finds itself in some of it's most disastrous situations. Every horror has been commited by people absolutely sure they are doing good.

    My advice is to just not think about it. You have as much influence on it as a man trying to shout back the tide.

    Sounds like you have a weak mental constitution and are easily radicalized by outliers on the internet.

    If that is your takeaway from this tool then you don't understand it enough to have an opinion on it.
    It was literally made to prevent tokenism and make sure a character isn't just "The gay one".

    Jebus creebus, this is something you buy and have everyone and their grandma sign an NDA for when using, because it's just utterly pathetic and a declaration of intelectual bakruptcy, not to mention creativity. Even under the assumption that this forced diversity is something good and desireable, the way of getting there via such a tool just makes you a complete and utter laughing stock from a professional perspective. They essentially say they can't create narratives with characters in a balanced way and need a virtual monkey on a typewriter to do it for them.

    That certainly made my day, thanks for sharing.
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) 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?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    the 10% is a number i found yesterday from a 2021 global survey. obviously you can't get the correct number, but a ballpark estimate.

    I honestly do not understand the purpose or value of this tool. What are they trying to actually accomplish here?

    So you are saying a company owned by activision is an "outside company"? Nice burner account btw, just stay on your actual account, its pathetic.

    I prefer if my Chinese dramas don't have white people in them, and they never do, you'll never see a white person in a Chinese drama, I also prefer if my western games don't mix in our culture without understanding it.
    There is a saying, write what you know, I think this tool will create strange stereotypes, wildly inaccurate characters that shame their native cultures and disgusting tokenism, nothing more.
    Sword Art Online is the best anime / japanese light novel series out there and it has both American and Korean players in it, aswell as people of a virtual Underworld who are described as more european looking.
