Rumour: Blizzard RealID Unpopular Internally

Since the announcement by Blizzard that players would be forced to reveal their real full name on their forums, the Blizzard community has gone nuts making thousands of posts on the topic and litres of digital ink have been spent on various gaming sites criticising the decision; That includes and many others.

Now a new rumour has appeared that Blizzard employees really are quite pissed off by this decision, and it might even be completely outside of Blizzard's hands.

Activision vs Infinity Ward anyone?

now Activision vs Blizzard?

That man... is a disgrace to humankind, also he's probably the most greedy T*** out there...

Leord2715d ago

Taking the fun out of videogaming since 2000...

kerriganss2715d ago

And forever more till his cold dead hands are clinging to his Gameboy Colour...

Please, do not announce another braindead CEO for activsion...

And i DEARLY hope Blizz can revoke this somehow..

Cloudberry2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

It's really unfortunate about Infinity Ward...

Conloles2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

Why did Blizzard merge with Activision? They were hardly struggling for cash and I bet they're regretting it now - Kotick said 70% of revenue comes from PC which would be thanks to Blizzard.

Well, it does sound like a step or two from hired thugs raiding Blizzard's offices to "disappear" management.

they can do whatever they like.

No smart company acquiesces to whiners. You only listen when there's a serious chance of losing sales.

If they persevere with this policy, then it should be quite obvious that they're confident that this won't happen.

morganfell2715d ago

You are correct. Activision hasn't caved since the Star Trek Armada II incident for which I am proud to say I was one of the chief architects in bringing the FTC into the fight.

Godmars2902715d ago

Which might be just what the a-holes behind the idea want. Gives them an excuse to not listen to whining if no one's whining in their official forums.

First he pisses off customers, then several other companies, now his own.

This guy has to be the most successful troll in the industry.

And I thought Activision was going to have 0 control over Blizzard.... *cough*

kerriganss2715d ago

You honestly didn't believe that?

You're looking upon a man who wants Subscription onto CoD....

DJDarkstar2715d ago

Ha dw that was definately sarcasm there. I dreaded the move since the day it was announced.

Holyknight30002715d ago

If it is out of blizzard's hands then we have a problem people.

Leord2715d ago

God, I don't want it to be true, but on the other hand, if it's NOT true, then that means Blizzard are simply ignoring their fans.

Eoweniel2715d ago

I think this whole thing is ridiculous and the unhappy employees should have announced their dislike towards this before it got out óf hand. Then again, who knows what went on behind the scenes. Maybe they didn't have much of a say.

Djorgo2715d ago

We should start a "I Hate Bobby Kotick Club"...

Then Bobby would join the club, make his way to club president, and charge everyone a monthly fee to stay in the club.
