Every time I'm tempted by D2:R or D4, some new horror manages to ooze out of Blizzard's cesspit or develop further.

I'm generally pessimistic on the odds of capital actually suffering consequences for their horrific actions, but there are so many different suits and agencies going after Blizz simultaneously that one or even several could do serious damage. Assuming that the govt actually does something to stop Blizzard from destroying (further) evidence or silencing (more) witnesses, without screwing up each othe-

Yeah, those are the messy strategies I'm expecting A-B to start pulling out as the pressure ramps up and people in charge get more uncomfortable. Wonder who Bobby's going to throw under the bus first?

"Blizzard polish" means never looking at character models from the back.

I've seen this ten times and still stricken by disbelief that it ever saw the light of day. Holy poo poo!

I mean one of the few things I think about when I hear the word "esports", is this tweet

This ended up being the catalyst for making a rule explicitly banning rape as a "joke" in guild/raids. Officers worried I was being too sensitive - surely it was silly to make a big deal out of it!

Our backup rogue was out the door two weeks later. Wasted his final words to call me a bitch one last time. :sweep:

Honestly, NFTs are no more a sham than people getting, I dunno, autographed books or certified movie prop replicas or Pokťmon card misprints or the brick from the Berlin wall. Itís not about the actual thing but the symbolism or the rarity of it. If they fix the carbon impact (and itís already totally possible), then what the heck, go for it. Giant corporations will benefit but legitimate artists as well. And if anyone doesnít want to participate thatís fine as well.

Of course itís more than a little lol that Ubisoft execs think the right message is ďdumbass consumers just donít get it.Ē But I think people do get too upset about markets existing for nebulous things. The collectibles market was already weird and inscrutable for hundreds of years; this is not anything new.
NFTs and collectible markets are both scams. You got it. You've figured it out. Good job!
