BlizzCon should consider asking attendees to wear Deodorant next year

BlizzCon considers making deodorant a requirement at future BlizzCons. Please read the following message sent home from a casual gamer who attended BlizzCon. Do you think Blizzard should make B.O. Juice mandatory at next years BlizzCon?

I don’t know how much more of this rancid b.o. smell I can take. Seriously, do gamers ever shower, or do they all have some mysterious disease that makes them reek?

This is just a friendly reminder from Big C to bathe before venturing into the public. (Blizzard, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Most likely

Hell yes sir. Deodorant and moisturized non-ashy skin are a must if I'm going out. I dun see how negroes can go out into public looking like they just rolled around in a firepit. Just like I don't see how you can go into a crowded place smelling like a ram goat.

And before this comment goes over anyone's head, I'm black.

showering is overrated, i quite enjoy the smell of my armpits when they get nice and ripe
i have a tendency to shart as well

Swagger and After Hours are two regular deodorants.
Too many of these 24/7 gamers don't understand basic hygiene. Shower everyday, twice if you don't pay the water bill. Deoderize after your morning shower, never forget that. Lotion up, you don't wanna be all crusty, bitches hate crusty dudes. Also, brush your damn teeth! Dental hygiene is key to keeping yourself healthy.
ThanatosDMC  +   1801d ago
Those people that dont clean themselves are disgusting... worst time i ever spent with one was working in a small room with three other people. The girl stank so much... she's not cute either. She may be 22 but she looked like she's in her 40s because of all that chain smoking and her orange skin for her "tan".

Sucks for the people that smelled those odors in BlizzCon since i watch the live streams and it was packed!
chazjamie  +   1801d ago
hahahah. retail memories. its time we put an end to this taboo: girls smells like flowers. Girls who work retail tend to stink like real shit. real old man shit. the worst is when they walk past you, and they give off this disgusting odour, it brushes past your face and you have to hold in your vomit. (it use to be a refreshing perfume, its been replaced with smell of sweat).

The ones who smoke.....well. they permamntly damaged. they smell so bad, i would get a headache. had to breathe through my mouth.

Oh shit, may god be with you to forget this horrible event.

I feel you, bro.

Also, I for a part am a hardcore gamer that showers every second day and washes his hair every day.
Using Deodorant is also important, that is why I use my lovely Axe Dark Tempation or my Miro Cabal Parfume~

Smelling like a young adonis... I guess.
Perjoss  +   1801d ago
I think one problem might be that the event lasts 2 days and some people might come from far away and not have a place to stay or wash up, so i guess some people just sleep in a car / van and then smell like the back end of a dog.

What would be worse is that....
I cant believe some people would not shower regularly whether they go out or not. Unless of course for some reason some situation beyond their control happens that would prevent them from washing up.

They must really friggin' stink, I've only ever met one truly stinky nerd in my life, they are a despicable breed. My friends older brother was playing SNES with us one day, I could smell him from 2 metres away, he passed me the control and after gaming for like 5 minutes and it was dripping with sweat, fat f-ing pig...
RememberThe357  +   1802d ago
I've never actually known one.
But I used to see them every once in a while when I'd ride the bus. Fat, greasy, and smelly. I try not to be a hateful person but that is a bread of human I despise.
chazjamie  +   1801d ago
i actually cant breathe now. that is so true. i have seen some funny expressions in my day. however over the years, people started playing with gloves not only to avoid blisters, but also to avoid stains: when they got the control and rubbed it on their tshirt, a brown stain would form.

This is a revised joke from Bill Hicks
"If you don't think nerds stink, I want you to go home tonight and burn all of your deodorant. Seriously, go home and burn it, because if you have ever been to any sort of conventions you would know, they rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-really f*cking stink like shit."

I've been to card shops and such like that and let me tell you something. There's always a guy that never showers. Smell someone with a bad hygiene without a reason other not showering? Tell him(hopefully not a her) "You smell like shit" and to take a shower right in their face.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1801d ago
yeah, in this day and age there is literally 0 reason to stink
dinkeldinkse  +   1802d ago
I would consider deodorant socially mandatory unless the person is 12-13(Whenever they get a B.O. problem) or younger. The next step up is not wiping your ass.
chazjamie  +   1801d ago
my friends younger brother (he is 12), stopped wiping his ass and washing his hands. i thought it was only him, but then i realised older men are starting to do it (the guys here at campus have no shame in just leaving a mess in the toilet, they dont even bother to piss on target anymore). guys dont flush anymore, or wipe their hands. i honestly feel i am the last of a dying breed (i always thought it was common sense to flush and wash your hands). The youth are starting to change. A change for the worse.

Not showering is bad
Obsessing over not showering is kinda pathetic.

lol. when someone doesnt wipe there ass and sits down, gets up again. you kind of smell something that doesnt belong in the room. its not a fart, but wet skid marks.

This is a convoe you don't want picturing in your head. But, crap man, people dont wipe their own ass after a shit? So, what, they just leave the shit stain there, pull up their pants, and walk out?

This shit is true....even in girls now a days, I've heard excuses like "too much deodorant stains my clothes" I don't care! I'd be fine with a spot on your shirt as long as you smell fine.
frostypants  +   1801d ago
Anti-perspirant is what tends to stain clothes. Plain deodorant usually will not. Hell, I stopped using anti-perspirant and I actually sweated LESS once my body adjusted. That stuff causes your body to over compensate if you use it too much.
bobrea  +   1802d ago
Seriously? It's beyond me that people go out without putting on deodorant. I mean...how do you not care about yourself that much?

I always shower everyday, can't live without it, but damn.
kaveti6616  +   1802d ago
Yeah, I am obsessive about showers. I like to rub those body wash poofs so roughly upon my skin until I'm red. And the reason why is because one time in high school I overslept so I went to school without showering and a friend of mine said, "Dude, you stink." And I felt so embarrassed that I never missed a day of shower ever again. I cannot leave the house without showering, and then wearing some deodorant. Right now I use Old Spice but it's not my favorite. Fellas. You can smell good 364 days out of the year, and the one day that you forget to shower can be the day a pretty girl walks by you or whatever. That one day can ruin a reputation. Always shower.

/cool story bro.

twice a day is something I don't have time for, but in the future it will be something I should do. A person doesn't really know how he smells like to others, so he must always be safe than sorry.

Seriously bro, cool story.

I shower twice a day, but I just don't sweat or have bad B.O so I rarely use D.O, if i'm going out for din dins though I slap on some JOOP

I shower before going to bed so I am not sleeping in my own filth all night long and I shower again in morning to make up for 8 hours under the blanket.

Just cant stand the way my skin feels if I don't

I don't see how anyone can go out in public, around thousands of people without washing their a**.

If i'm trying to enjoy the conference, and this dude beside me is offending my senses, I would leave, go to the nearest store or whatever, come back and introduce him to deodorant and teach the guy about personal hygiene like his mother should have.
Bolts  +   1801d ago
What a moronic request.
Asking MMO fans to keep good personal hygiene is like forcing Xbox Live! subscribers to not use racial slurs and homophopic insults while playing Modern Warfare 2 online.

It ain't gonna happen.
---stone---  +   1801d ago
lmao I can see it now...

Blizzcon smell control team walks by sniffing everyone and if someone smells like burnt onions, cigarettes and dog shit... they are immediately forced to raise their arms, a pit crew of blizzcon hygieneers spray on some deoderant, or use a paint roller to roll on some right guard total defense 5 gel deoderant and spray breath freshener in their mouth and have their clothes febreezed.

Take a cue from what George Carlin said... something along the lines of "You dont have to shower everyday, but maintain and clean the 4 major areas of filth... armpits, asshole, crotch and teeth."

Ive heard some people say... deoderant makes my armpit rashy, stains my clothes etc etc... and these people smell like they use bull shit, or mayonaisse and herrings as deodorant. Or use vomit as lotion or something... mthrfkn disgusting.

theres also plenty of skinny and fit people that smell like theyve been harvesting onions and stepping in cow shit all day and/or chumming fish in the heat all day too. doesnt apply to the hippo like fatties who cant maintain fat roll control.

My dad is a vietnam vet and he would tell me what would happen if soldiers/officers on base stunk and did not take or refused to take showers, a few mp's or a few military officers would take "said" person, a bar of soap, a couple of scrub brushes and take them to the shower area, strip them down and give them a g.i shower. So here is what I would suggest that they do next year at blizzcon:

Next year put speed stick and old spice booths at every entrance and have them give out free samples of their products to everyone. If that did not work have everyone from that point on who attends blizzcon to sign wavers before admittance to the event to prevent attendees from suing whomever hosts the blizzcon event by taking the following actions: have a group of about 50 security officers, a lot of soap, shampoo, scrub brushes, towels, and a fleet of portable showers located somewhere in the building but out of site. Then go out and seek people that smell, then have the officers tell the smelly individuals to leave the premises and to not come back until they take a shower. If they refuse have some of the officers take "said" individuals, and the proper hygienic materials and give them a g.i shower . I know this would never happen but it would solve the problem, not to mention most people who attend the event in the future would shower before they go to avoid the shower brigade.

Can you imagine what it was like before showers, soap, shampoo etc... were invented or were widely practiced. Just the thought of it is sickening. I don't know how anyone had an appetite back then with people smelling rancid back then.

I hope they do make shyt like that mandatory. The past couple of conventions I've been to have been ruined cus of clowns who dont know wtf hygeine is. I have walked by dudes who smelled like they took a bath in boiled garbage water and brushed their teeth with garlic and bannana toothpaste.

I swear to god next time I go to a convention I'm wearing some boxing glove with tootpaste slathered on one and deodorant/anti-bacterial soap on the other and beatin da hell outta some nerds >_>
