Riot's 7 new games are a declaration of war against Blizzard

As Blizzard continues to falter, Riot is out for blood.

The story is too old to be commented.

Its about time someone slapped Activision-Blizzard back to reality.

Riot is chinese owned (Tencent) and basically run by the chinese gov so.... really they slapped themselves by bowing down to them.

UltraNova654d ago

Tencent owns a slice of everyone, what's your point? Competition is always positive, no matter the border.

The issue was blizzard was acquiescing to a communist regime opposing freedom and free speech because they are afraid to lose money.

To be clear, blizzard, the NBA, etc all speak out politically and oppositionally all the time in the US, because they have the freedom. Kind of Ironic, lebron james stood up for Kaepernick, campaigned with Hillary, complained about "shut up and dribble," but now says the "NBA is not political" and shouldn't give opinions on political matters.

The issue isn't the pursuit of of profit, that is fine, it is allowing a nearly tyrannical government control your companie's (and employees) interest to save themselves from losing money, at the expense of their own and others freedom. Of course competition and seeking profit are fine, it is called capitalism, China is not a capitalist system though. It isn't fear that they will lose consumers that drives this, it is fear they will lose the rights to operate in China at all, hence the issue.

Let's get it. In the end, we win. Also, don't think anyone is comparing Project A to Shadownrun (2007) - which is the reason I'm insanely hype.

Notellin654d ago

I am!!!!! That Shadowrun game was so far ahead of it's time. I'm pumped and can't wait to see you out there!

slate91654d ago

That's what I'm talking about! Severely underrated game. Loved it.

Criminally underrated. I told everyone I knew about it and we formed a squad. It was probably the most fun I had on Xbox Live in the 360 days outside of Halo.

they're both owned by tencent free hong kong

In the end, it could actually be China vs current game market as we know - and probably want - it.

Look around about "dialectics" if you want to know more about it.

AllMightyFox654d ago

isn't attacking a bleeding, sick and dying group more slaughter than war ?!?!?

maybe since the attacker is sick and dying as well it counts …..

Really worried about the fighting game and what it will do to the genre moving forward. It will be the most accessible fighting game with super high payouts in tournaments and everyone will want a piece of that pie. There has already been a trend with fighting games being dumbed down, definitely over the last decade+, but I feel like Riots game will take it to a whole new level. Especially if you take into consideration the acquisition of Radiant Entertainment who made Rising Thunder. (A fighting game with easy combos and one button specials.) They have an opportunity to do something really special here but unfortunately I think it will only be on the netcode (GGPO) side of things.
