Diablo 4 storefront being a cash grabbing shitshow does unironically attest to that, kudos.

Microsoft needs to be guiding Blizzard to be what it USED to be, not allowing it to continue to be the greedy bastardization of itself that it has become.

Okay i will be interested if they become old Blizzard but might as well be dead.

They will never be old blizzard. Most of all the OG's left from developers to those on the top (even some decision making folks left).

Shame most of the people that made Blizzard what they were, have already left a while ago.

I was about to say this. How can they be blizzard when they're no longer blizzard from yesteryear?

Rare was the thing I lost heart

Exactly. Blizzard hasn’t been Blizzard for a long time.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Blizzard is not the same Blizzard like it use to be.

Were you expecting Microsoft to hire everyone that had left Blizzard long before they purchased the company...

Microsoft has let the Blizzard company they purchased continue to be the Blizzard company they purchased.

Wow, PassNextquestion,

You fully understand what that saying means, unlike some people on here who just have to say negative garbage talk.

When someone says, "Just let *blank* be *blank*, "they are just letting them operate how they operate.

It's pretty much how Sony "let Bungie be Bungie."

This comment section is full of outright haters, but you have to "let N4G be N4G"

This site leans so heavily in one direction...


I don't think people commenting are necessarily blaming MS for anything here, this is just collective longing for what Blizzard/Vivendi was before Activision's meddling.
