So the feminists and woke mob types fully are on board with stuff like Onlyfans but having a female character in a game with a low cut shirt is too much? Talk about inconsistent messaging.

They hate straight white male gamers that lean conservative.

It doesn’t even matter if they are conservative, I’m a liberal and they absolutely despise me.

Almost as much as they hate more attractive women.

Anything a man enjoys that a woman doesn’t directly benefit from is EVIL AND BAD.

It's censorship for China. They don't allow anything suggestive.

Well, OnlyFans is you paying them.

This is you paying a corporation money that they feel they deserve.

They only care about the money.

In the Warcraft, there is an image of a woman but the ones profiting from it are men. And women hate that. The same way they hate ads which have hot women in them, because the one making money are men in the end.

To them, it's completely different from a "singer" who is basically a stripper and whores on OnlyFans, because they know the money is going to women. Women only care about the money, not whether there is tits being shown.

Literally. The 'French Girl' style painting was replaced by an actual bowl of fruit.

Not the first time Blizzard has done something like this. A couple of years ago Jaina Proudmoore's hero portrait was changed without explaination, giving her a white undershirt to make her cleavage less visible.

This is something that would have caused open gamer rebellion in the 90s-00s. But now that it’s purple hairs doing it instead of nosey old Christian ladies then it’s ok.

Maybe because purple hairs claim to be gamers (thus potential clients whose opinions matter... even though they rarely actually are) while nosey Christian ladies never claimed to consume the media themselves (thus not potential clients so their opinion didn't matter... although they probably more frequently bought the games for their sons than purple hairs do for themselves)

Didn't they also make Sylvanas less sexy also? I remember a prominent female cosplayer got pretty pissed off about that. She liked the old sexy version and liked cosplaying as her.

CisSiberianOrchestra 2 points ago +3 / -1

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they did. I remember hearing something about that.

Chest is way too large. Needs to be smaller. /s

Can we replace women in every form of media with fruit bowls?

No more garbage romance plots, no more cringe sex scenes, no more listening to obnoxious voices and propaganda.

Who's with me?

No, that's throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

I really would love to see the pointless romance plot every single movie and most tv shows have fired into the sun.

An interesting take I saw on this is that Blizzard did this for a reason not readily apparent.

The headlines now read...

"Video game nerds upset Blizzard replaced 'offensive' artwork"

instead of...

"Video game nerds upset Blizzard was a pit of sexual harassment and other shitty behavior"*

*Yeah, there's way too much smoke there for me to believe Blizzard is innocent.

lol Blizzard is so irrelevant.

They're like that lunatic old relative where everyone just sighs and goes: "Well, that's uncle jeff."

Its funny.. since a lot of wow's player base went to ff14 and bdo. And both those mmorpg is filled with sexy characters and npcs lol.

Something interesting that someone pointed out. It's really hard to accuse them of sexism and objectification of women when you can make just as sexy male characters and there are very revealing costumes for them as well

How unfortunate. I sought after many a slut mog back when I played WoW. I also cosplayed at BlizzCon for many years when cosplay was fun rather than commercialized. My cosplays were somewhat sexualized but I think that's part of the fun and fantasy. Most of the women I know that went and cosplayed were supportive of everyone having fun rather than judging or complaining about the choice of a racey cosplay or technical. I enjoyed stepping out of my normal modest shell, much like in game, and enjoy my sexuality.

Has nothing to do with women etc etc It's 100% to do with China. Look up the changes made to Gwent card artwork and you'll understand.

Replacing swords with spoons, romantic images with a woman standing doing nothing, etc

This isn't even the worst shit they've done recently. A few months ago the voice actor for Kael'thas Sunstrider, an iconic character since WC3, was falsely accused of rape by some bitch. Before the dust even settled Blizzard had fired him and replaced ALL of his voicelines with a new guy in WoW, even from The Burning Crusade, which came out in 2007. Worst part was even after he was declared innocent they never reverted the changes, and it's made even worse with the recent lawsuits. I hate this company so much, if it wasn't for Classic I wouldn't have a single Blizzard game on my computer.

Players like you are the reason Blizzard continues to shamble on. Dump official and go to a private server.

Vulkanian 1 point ago +1 / -0

You're funny if you think private servers are any better. In fact, a lot of them are worse.

2
Gamerarch 2 points ago +2 / -0

You haven't tried them in the past five or so years then. A lot utilise open source cores these days which pool together a lot of the work previously splintered across different servers for very retail-like experiences, if not better.

1
Vulkanian 1 point ago +1 / -0

I've played on private servers since 2015, I've played on all the big ones like Warmane, Nostalrius, Kronos, etc. They are not nearly as polished as official servers, and in the case of Warmane they are scam artists and employ P2W garbage. I hate Blizzard but at least they don't create fake queues to try and scam people into paying them to skip it.

It's not really worth arguing with those whose only advice is to cancel anything related to a woke company.

1
Gamerarch 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's not got nothing to do with Blizzard being woke, it's got everything to do with bankrolling shitty products. Private servers, for the most part, have been a better experience than retail as far as I've played, and I've been a long term player of about four different ones.

The whole reason I'm so passionate about Blizzard and WoW as a subject is because I'm a fan who used to care very deeply about the game before Blizzard's quality control dropped off a damn cliff.

That should tell you something. I like my game servers to stay around.

Three of four still exist, actually. I just moved on because my friends did.

Those are some nice cantaloupes though... I love how people progress so far that they start regressing.
