    No - I obviously mean of the population of the video games.

    Due to COVID-19, Germany is running out of sausages and cheese.
    The government considers this to be the Wurst Käse scenario

    Yeah Blizz being a bit too transparent here. Even for the people that get off on all this diversity and inclusion should hate something like this, so I honestly have no idea why they decided to release this information.

    And here I thought that MMO-C was going to distance themselves from this "News" after mods shut down the chat we were having before.

    At least they kept the pictures in that Blizzard removed from their original press release

    Bro, what is with companies turning things like diversity or sexual preferences, or race, into a checkbox on a list?

    We already have this in real life. Have you applied to a job, school, or scholarship recently? Gender/race/disability are all being used (likely against you).

    It was also publicly challenged in the past:

    "In Gratz v. Bollinger the court struck down the undergraduate point-based admissions process, which awarded black applicants points based on race." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gratz_v._Bollinger ; https://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor...4/post_16.html

    Feel like someone needs to point out the idea:

    "Adopting a policy of *insert type*-ism to combat *insert type*-ism is still *insert type*-ism and only creates more *insert type*-ism."



    The Ryan Long video of the Woke Guy and the Racist Guy agree on everything just keeps popping up in my mind when I see foolish ideas like this.

    There is a clear difference between making LGBTQ people feel equal, belonging and comfortable and literally implying that being heterosexual and having a slim and curvy figure is wrong.

    If you take a discrimination and switch polarities to 360 degrees to compensate, it will only create another discrimination which isn't better than the old one.

    Because companies don't see people. They see numbers. Anything they can quantify as potentially usefully data, to eventually be translated into profit, they will.

    This isn't being "woke". It's the same-old, soulless corporate bullshit under a different PR spin.

    Absolutely a PR stunt, some where there is a suit going “diversity sells and we need good will with the lawsuit” so they make this and talk about it publicly to try and get good PR.

    The devs them selfs likely heard about this the same time the public did and if this was before the lawsuit would likely keep there mouths shut too not get reprimanded by HR.
    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.

    and, to copy and paste what I said on the now closed thread, in what world did Activision Blizzard think this would be a good idea to make a press release about? This to me seems like it should be some shady as fuck "Dude, trust me I work for ActivisionBlizzard" smuggled out of HQ leak that they'd IMMEDIATELY shoot down as "This system isn't in practice"

    Also, can we please do the current Lore figures in WoW? Where would Thrall land? What about Anduin? Anduin seems like he'd be like all zeroes on the meter. Young, straight, White, Cis Male with no injuries... oooh can we put his mental trauma of being dominated by The Jailer on there someplace?

    it's really sad how forced this is being.

    it's like people get outraged because there is not 1 of every single gender/race/sexual orientation combination included in every game.

    It is the logical conclusion to this current fad.

    I've been wondering if MMO-C were ever going to post this.

    This is probably the single biggest own goal Blizzard has ever had. And the worst part is... they see it as a god thing

    Can't wait for every non "white male" added to the game to be mocked to oblivion by people working out their diversity stat points.

    You can't have "virtue signaling" without the signaling part.

    That's the kind of shit that was very likely promoted during a meeting, where some corporates assholes asked the developers to use that super-efficient tool, to what Developers agreed, and then they never cared a iota.

    What I like the most in that news is :
    In light of the controversy, the original post was updated with an editor's note which clarifies that the tool is not being used in active game development.
    Then it's useless. Then whoever paid for the development of such tool should be fired.
    If I spend the next months designing something out of pure pleasure with absolutely no benefit for my company, I can guarantee I'll have to explain why. I'm not sure this'll be the case here.

    According to that tool I'm probably a good ol' 0. Maybe 1 because I'd rank poorly in "Ability" if I understand correctly that chart.
    what would be your score, fellow MMOC users ?
    Someone should create a poll topic to check what would be the average score down there haha, but I won't do, don't wanna be banned

    This is another level. They are now actually assigning numerical value to each thing. That is what is the backlash seems to be about. Yikes a straight character? 0 points! Hmm BI? 5 points. Ah Gay? That is worth 10 points! Trans? Yahtzee!! Thats is a 15 pointer right there!
