Is scrotum cape already a meme?

Day 1 buy for me

The Blizzard/HK stuff is blown out of proportion.

Blizzard have every right to ban the player and curate what is said on their private streams.

Blizzard isn't causing the protest in hong kong. Gamers are idiots.

It has nothing to do with free speech/democracy.

Take it one step further and throw out all the stuff in your house that comes from China.

Gamers are idiots.

This sentiment would make sense if I threw out the Polar Seltzer in my fridge because they had a contest which they denied the winner's prize because he or she once tweeted something in support of Hong Kong.

We're not angry at the products that China produces. China going back on its word for autonomy in Hong Kong governing itself? Yes. But that is legislators. And if the companies that make these products back it, yeah, I'd probably wouldn't buy it again. Not consuming a product I bought is wasteful and does not help anything... in fact, that would cause more of a mess if you think about it.

However, Blizzard has bent over backwards to defend a potential income source while lying to our faces. Note, I would have actually been more ok with the move (still wouldn't given them any money for many other reasons) if they didn't cower and lie to everyone's faces.

But you know, let's get into more of those reasons.

I do not buy any online-only games any more. I do not play online with almost anyone any more. My enjoyment of a game is strictly local to me, myself, and I. I do not see the need to be constricted by the fact that you or others might want to play online so my enjoyment has to be linked to how others like a game.

But beyond that. I haven't liked how Blizzard has handled its E-sports leagues, cutting 8% of its workforce despite record revenue, and while having positive steps with correcting Overwatch's toxicity, I hate the monetization of it.

Glad you found something to like here. Others didn't. People aren't idiots if they disagree with you, just as people aren't idiots because they agree with you. 7.7 billion people in the world. At least twenty times that in perception.

Why must every membrane be associated with ballsacks?

Why not the membrane that connects our fingers?

Neither does this make me think ballsack.

Say what you want, i still think "flesh cape" is metal, and nice change from wowified D3 style.

MrCalavera:

Say what you want, i still think "flesh cape"

Congratulations, you're a normal person.

Well, as normal as Gothic fantasy allows you to be that is.

There better be Paladins and Necromancers in this Gothic Fantasy.

Why?

Of the five classes that will be available at launch, three of them are lifted from D2.

Give us something new.

Not a comment on how 'metal' the design is, me and the internet just think it also looks like a ballsack.

Oh, it absolutely does, but that itself is "metal".

I take it your not a fan of Jim Sterling as well?

I really like Jim sterling actually. I agree with most of what he says. Just not on this issue. Honestly, he is too good for the Gaming industry.

There are a lot of legitimate arguments for every human on this planet being an idiot in some way or form...but not blindly giving their money away to a greedy immoral international corporation who doesn't give a shit about them, is most certainly not one of them.

You mean every corporation ever?

How many items in your house do you own that are from china? Hypocrite.

Blizzard have every right to curate what is said on their private platform.

Just like you have every right to kick anyone out of your own house.

It is not blizzards job to support anyone or anything. And using the guise of freedom of speech is disingenuous at best.

Lufia Erim:

They sure do. And I, in turn, have every right to decide that, in the course of that curation, they have violated societal norms in a way that I do not wish to support with my money.
