Activision Blizzard Fires World of Warcraft Game Designer for Making Fun of Corporate Greed

Activision Blizzard leaders didn’t appreciate jokes that poked fun at greedy corporate execs via a conniving, scampering, and loot-obsessed character in World of Warcraft, so much so they fired the game designer who wrote the little goblin’s voice lines.

You know Blizzard and Microsoft thinks a like and they both have the same philosophy 🤔 So does that mean Microsoft are lovers too 🤔

Sonic1881119d ago (Edited 119d ago )

Lovers lol I meant to say Losers (typo error) 🤣

AmUnRa119d ago

said it before, I'll say it again. Unionize!

I won't ever give that company another dime.

Yep, I'm sure Diablo 4 is a great game. I'm also sure that I'm glad I didn't purchase it. I know it won't make much difference, but I refuse to contribute any sales/money to Blizzard.

I don't know about part 3 but it sounds like 4 is more multi-player based and the micro transactions sound like a blast.

I'd rather go get a used copy of 3 never bought it. I believe there's 3 different versions released with dlc just never looked into which one was the most complete

N4G is such a bizarre website. You either have the "company has crossed the line with shady business practices and lacklustre games" crowd or you have the "wHy CaNt YoU lEt PeOpLe JuSt HaVe FuN?" crowd.

Personally, I don't see what Diablo 4 is doing that is any better or more innovative than what Grim Dawn already did 7 years ago.

xander31119d ago

same, i very much want to at least dabble in diablo 4 a little bit but fuck it, i'm not going to and i don't trust blizzard to deliver a good game anyway. they specialize in digital storefronts now and grindfests.

Old McGroin120d ago

Yes, I'm sure the 20 or so people on N4G saying they're boycotting them will really make them want to change their ways. Anywho, I'm off to get stuck into more Diablo 4!

SullysCigar120d ago

Blizzard thanks you for supporting corporate greed. Good work, soldier!

Old McGroin119d ago


Thanks man! And likewise to you, because everything you own has been produced by a corporation to make money! Glad we're all in this together!

xander31119d ago

difference is you are buying a product, not a game. I'm not interested in products, i want to play games.

Blizzard fleecing pockets...ok. but the moment you poke fun at them for it they lose their cool lol I was waiting for a sale to buy diablo 4 now I'm just skipping it altogether. Having no sense of humor is a serious problem.
