  • Scape: TDPS on Blizzard lawsuit fiasco
  • CDN_PATRIOT: I've watched some videos on YouTube that show what a total shit show Blizzard had become after being purchased/taken over by Activision. Apparently, Activision is as hated (if not more) than EA as of late. It's not going to get any better, either.

  • Scape: It's where up and coming studios go to die. They buy them out so they don't have competitors and they don't have to create or maintain new IP. Idea's then stagnate and old boy culture like a mold sets in.

    The only way this gets rectified is if the stockholders see their bottom lines get hurt.

    Which will never happen. With the COD's that get made and the cash cow that is the world of microtransactions, Activision's bottom line won't get hurt anytime soon.

    It is truly sad what's happened to Blizzard though. They used to be kings of RTS and MMO's and over the last few years they have completely stagnated into near irrelevancy. There's a Diablo 4 in the works and it seems like anyone cares. I know I don't. D3 was fine but became a chore after the main story was done. Hearthstone was fun but now its P2W. Sad.
  • Thanos: This is where not being a gamer feels great because if you're not one then you don't support with your money the newest generation of malicious corporate frat-boy assholes.
