    King is a Swedish company and they created the tool in the first place. Sorry to break it to you, but Europe is not much better off.

    I am outraged that the company is called King, clearly propagating toxic patriarchy and ruling over those less worthy. I demand it be named to Queen or Queer!

    Sweden is the worst place when it comes to gender-related madness.
    Everything here is allowed and all kind of clowns get the spotlight.

    I'd say Europe has a wide mix of diversity policies. THere are places were diversity policies might be pushing too hard and quite a few were diversity policies are non-existent or not not enforced.

    Sure. Europe is certainly more diverse on the political and cultural spectrum than the United States. I was just stating that the tool was created by a European company, so it's not like it is a US only thing.

    Not even stereotyping her looks and saying that she looks like a lesbian, I mean it in the sense that it would be a legitimate crime against females attracted to other females everywhere if she didn't dabble with the ladies. My wife is pansexual, and Zarya is 100% on her list of video game characters who are attractive.
    Damn I really hope you dont own any pets.

    Guess who well never be blamed or even sued again for "woky" reasons. Guess who will also make video games that no one will be interested in.

    No its a Swedish company. Europe is a continent not a country. Sweden is way above the average in EU when it comes to being far left.

    What? You mean the race with the highly offensive “English” accent?

    Sexual harassment to the point that there is a suicide in the company is not really "woky" reasons.

    Why are you guys replying to posters that have "California" as their location? What exactly do you expect to get as an answer?

    Sweden is a European country. Ergo, King is a European company. It is also a Swedish company. Being one thing does not exclude it from being the other.

    We're not the only European country with left leaning politics. I don't disagree though that we're on the farther left side of the spectrum.

    There is such a thing as creating shit tailored for foreign markets, though. I'm not saying that we don't have our fair share of bs here in Europe, but just because something was made in a market doesn't necessarily mean it's meant for said market.

    There is no such thing as a european company. King doesnt span the entirety of europe its centered in sweden.

    You might aswell argue that King is an earth company for whatever merit you think that gives it. Its irrelevant.

    The reason for my coutner argument is that saying its an european company somehow links it with all of EU's countries but it has nothing to do with Denmark for example. Its just as much an american company as a danish company.

    Inclusion in gaming never had anything to do with the looks of one's character. This just shows how far from understanding whats wrong with their games they all are.

    Activision at this point are that kid that wants to help out but just keeps getting in the way.

    Acti-Blizz, just stand out of the way, let the adults do their thing, you are just causing more problems lol
    "People fear, not death, but having life taken from them. Many waste the life given to them, occupying themselves with things that do not matter. When the end comes, they say they did not have time enough to spend with loved ones, to fulfill dreams, to go on adventures they only talked about... But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'" - Wynne ( Dragon Age: Origins.)

    And really, their own developers said it best. Diverse teams make diverse games. And Overwatch is diverse because it has a diverse team and the members each pushed for some representation, not just so they can meet a quota. If the characters did not feel natural people would not have loved them so much more than they ever loved the game itself.

    You'll never get a character to feel natural if you make them with this tool. They'll just be an assembly of tropes.
