    The "Nobody is actually using it" was done after the tool was originally announced, presumably as damage control.

    Wait all of them problems? The multi million dollar law suit was just a false flag by woke activists stirring up drama they faked the whole thing for ideological reasons?
    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.

    Yeah obviously lol.

    Like they clearly are backtracking here, like they clearly thought everyone was goin to love this and if the reception was different they would have 100% gone in the other direction.

    While ya it’s damage control The dev’s them selfs have also said they don’t use it and have bemoaned the suits for pretending that they do.

    This was nothing more then a distraction from they’re other actions.

    Depends on how much candy crush you play.

    Gullible? You think they were trying to “trick us” into thinking this was used?

    This is the timeline:

    1. Blizzard makes good games.
    2. Blizzard is overrun by creeps.
    3. Blizzard makes bad games.
    4. Blizzard tries to correct course.

    Now, maybe you have a different understanding of how "time" works, but generally speaking it flows forward, not backward, so I'm struggling to understand why we should blame 3 on 4 rather than on 2.

    Instead of rerolling characters to get an 18 in Str or Dex now you reroll until you're a blind palestinian lesbian who studies engineering at community College and hates cats

    IMO, given the developers, it really wouldn't be that out-of-character for them to be using such a thing.

    This is not hard stuff if you spend any time offline, touching grass, not thinking about twitter and not desperately seeking woke bogeymen around every corner.

    The original post sounded like a half hearted promo for a silly idea that seven people at Activision ever actually saw and would never go anywhere.

    There's a strange overlap of people offended by this tool's existence and those who are inclined to, unprompted, write paragraphs upon paragraphs about how persecuted straight white males are in this, God's year two-thousand-and-twenty-two.

    It's just a silly over-engineered solution to a problem. The absolute meltdown in response is hilarious.

    That's an unreasonable framing-- that there's only two kinds of people in the world: progressives or "MAGA Hats". Humanity is not that simple and even people within both movements are not that simple. You are also not that simple. Reductive categories make it easy to make hypothetical people who do not exist or exist in few numbers. By claiming that there's only progressives and "MAGA Hats" in Blizzard, you force the entire corporation of Blizzard employees into those categories and discard one category as undesirable. This is prejudice, reductive, and not at all helpful.

    What on earth does this have to do with going outside? A company has a giant announcement detailing everything about a program they worked on for five years, and you think it’s obvious that this was just a “just for giggles” thing?

    I honest to god can’t tell if you’re trolling. I don’t actually care about the tool at, no matter how dumb I think it is. But what on earth are you even talking about my friend.

At best, this straw-manning is unhelpful; at worst is prejudice.

    They clarified it is not being used in active game development. That is, it is just virtue signaling, which apparently backfired.

    Ok? Lol.

    I mean just because I think the tool is dumb and is hurtful in the long run doesn’t mean I think white people are being persecuted. This is that same mindset of people calling all woke folks white hating because some of them use it as a tool to actually hate white people.

    But this guy has taken it in a very weird very conspiratorial-esq type of direction that’s super silly lol.
