Dude definitely deserves more for his contribution to the success of these games... $16M USD more? Maybe not...

I tried beta, and it wasn't enough to get me to sub, but I tried again when it was F2P, and thoroughly enjoyed the leveling and the combat...

But then I tried the crafting system, and quit... While I could have enjoyed the game without crafting, I like to consider the long term appeal, and I just wasn't going to put the time in to get anywhere with it, if one of the systems was that 'grindy'.

It almost gives the impression that some of these lumberjacks didn't read the article and haven't been following the issue over the last week.....we should all be shocked and stunned. While some of the reactions are silly and over the top regarding joking done between co-workers, there was obviously a lot more going on below the surface. The requirement that you be an enthusiastic part of 'riot culture' as part of the hiring process, the way some of the female employees were treated, the way some of the losers would try to leverage their position for hook-ups.....all massive red flags. One would hope that they would fix the issues and not do the exaggerated pendulum swing to the polar opposite.

I like your points, minus the bolded one... How is this different than any other software, or more specifically, game company? I know I want enthusiastically culture fitting people for where I work. Companies like Blizzard require this, because they can cherry pick from hundreds of thousands of yearly applications...

I don't mind nudity as long as it doesn't feel forced and it doesn't feel as if I'm watching a porn video. I would also like it if nudity was equal to both genders (and I'm heterosexual btw). I find it ridiculous when media has no problem showing plenty of female nudity but then when it comes to male nudity they film from weird camera angles and there are neatly placed props to cover up the man's penis. I remember seeing plenty of female nudity in the Witcher 3 but not once did they show Geralt's dong. Why the inequality?

I don't recall Witcher 3 showing any Vulva's (the closest to the male equivalent you're referring to twice), so I'm not sure where this 'inequality' lies...

Impressive. Congrats to WoW.

Co-Workers are trying to get me back into the game, but I'm two expansions behind and don't have the energy anymore. Hearing a lot of good things though.

Impressive? No, its not really. This is what the current user base has been over the past few years. so it was expected.

Pretty low compared to previous addons.

"Battle for Azeroth is the fastest-selling World of Warcraft expansion ever"

It's interesting how things felt leading up to the launch... Lots of complaints about how meh Blizzard's pre-pre-launch efforts were...

Personally, going into the pre-patch was pretty meh... I enjoyed the content/story of the pre-patch, but there was so little of it, and nothing consistent, like Legion's launch. Then the later events, and the big lol disappointment (Who burned the tree? Of course it's Sylvanas, but no, 'You'll be surprised' marketing bullshit)...

And then a whole slew of pre-launch content came out (2 of the 3 warbringers vids, 2 very not short novellas about the tree event), and people were all over the place, generating the usual hype...

The expansion itself feels good... Has a bunch of the things that worked well in Legion, and some of the (old and new) problems. The Horde story has been interesting, and gearing up (WQ's and/or Dungeons) is the same as it ever was (maybe faster). Both my Demo Lock and Frost DK are low 320's, and I'll be ready to step into Normal Raiding by the 4th, and I've enjoyed both in longer fights, so I'm hopeful I won't get bored to shit too fast ; )

The whole Azerite gear system is a bit fucky though... As you level, you unlock all the traits available, and then at max, you replace the gear, with equivalent traits, but can't unlock them for another month... It's a really weird design... The traits themselves are not game-making/breaking, but some of them are pretty cool... Vampiric Speed was amazing for leveling, and is again, now that I'm finally getting it back while doing some WQ content.

The scaling leveling is also just as fucked as it was in Legion, where you start strong, solo'n 3-5 (double if tank) with no problem at 110-114, then it shrinks down as you progress, and you're your weakest at 120, then you get gear... Part of this is just the iteration of an expansion based system (like secondary stats going from 40% to 10%), but the scaling on top of it (which has a crap ton of pros for other reasons) exacerbates that 'problem' a hundred fold.

Why the fuck isn't there a boycott?

Why would there be a boycott? If you don't feel it is worth the $$$'s don't buy it. The premium they are charging, for me it better be 50% better vs last gen on standard games. Right now Ray Tracing needs to be an added bonus, since it will be a while for support and that is if it sticks.

Well... There was that whole false marketing on memory a few years back...

As much as I don't want to keep installing different publisher's launchers... Can't blame them for wanting that sweet sweet 30% back, for a pretty trivial application. Hell, I built an auto updater ~15 years ago for a project I sent Blizzard, which could have been flushed out into a marketplace (If I'd known, and/or had business sense to get into game sales ; ).

Sooo... ya... Got home and watched the vid again, and nevermind... That's pretty 'retro' pixel art...

All I need to know is if I can pay $15 in February and try Anthem out for a month... And then consider paying for another month or three, or buying it (at a 10% discount)...

Their FAQ claims cancellation is easy, and canceling early doesn't fuck over your date (Some subs have done this), so I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work.
