      Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees, addressing the allegations from this week's lawsuit.
      The president called them "extremely troubling" and said that he'd be "meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward", according to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
      Placeholder for tweet 1418512291218264065 Here's a full transcript of the mail (courtesy of Jason Schreier).
      J. Allen Brack
      Hello Blizzard - 
      I personally have a lot of emotions coming out of yesterday, and I know you do, too. The allegations and the hurt of the current and former employees are extremely troubling.
      I know many of you would like to receive more clarity. While I can't comment on the specifics of the case as it's an open investigation, what I can say is that the behavior detailed in the allegations is completely unacceptable.
      It goes - without saying - it is completely unacceptable for anyone in the company to face discrimination or harassment. It goes - without saying - that everyone should feel safe working here, whether we are on campus, at BlizzCon, or working from home. It goes - without saying - it takes courage to come forward, and all claims brought to the company are investigated by internal and (when needed) external investigators. We take these claims very seriously. Claims made without fear of retaliation, and many times, I attend to them personally, along with our other leaders. Stepping back - when I talked with Bobby about taking this job, one of the first things I mentioned was a revered saint of the Brack household - Gloria Steinem. Growing up, the value of women as equals, understanding the work that had been done for equal treatment, and the fact that there was still much to do, were common themes. This is just one of the reasons why the fight for equality is incredibly important to me. People with different backgrounds, views, and experiences are essential for Blizzard, our teams, and our player community. I disdain "bro culture," and have spent my career fighting against it.
      Iterating on our culture with the same intensity that we bring to our games is imperative, with our values acting as our north star. This is some of the most important work we do, both as professionals and human beings.
      A company is more than a legal construct that exists as a piece of paper in a filing cabinet in Delaware. The people that work at the company make it what it is, through their actions and creations. Each of us plays a role in maintaining a place of safety for one other. And it is also up to each of us to continue to craft the Blizzard we want - and commit to doing our part in keeping Blizzard great but always aspiring for more.
      The leadership team and I will be meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward. In the meantime, I wanted to know that you can talk to any man ager, any HR partner, any member of the legal team, or to any one on the executive team [including, Hey J]. If you feel more comfortable by talking to someone outside of Blizzard, or prefer to be anonymous, you can contact the Way2Play Integrity Line (CENSORED).
      I feel angry, sad, and a host of other emotions, but I also feel grateful to work alongside a set of leaders and thousands of employees who join me in their commitment to continuous improvement.
      Thank you Blizzard.

      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:

      Shards of Domination Blood Link's target application has been made more reliable. Using the Silver Shardhide Whistle toy while in a Druid form will now cancel the form and activate the toy instead of failing and putting the toy on cooldown. Torghast, Tower of the Damned
      Anima Powers Priest Fixed an issue where Bwonsamdi's Pact (Runecarving Power) was not benefitting from Dreamspun Mushrooms (Anima Power). Torments Avenger will no longer spam sound effects on every kill.

      The state of California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard.
      As initially reported by Bloomberg Law, the lawsuit comes after a 2-year investigation and claims, among other things, that the company fosters a "frat boy" culture where female employees are subjected to constant sexual harassment, unequal pay, and retaliation, with cube crawls in which male employees "drink copious amounts of alcohol as they crawl their way through various cubicles in the office and often engage in inappropriate behavior toward female employees". It also claims Activision Blizzard's leadership has not addressed any of the listed issues nor prevented them in the workplace.
      The WoW team was also talked about specifically: "Female employees working for the World of Warcraft team noted that male employees and supervisors would hit on them, make derogatory comments about rape, and otherwise engage in demeaning behavior, the agency alleges." Former WoW Senior Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi and Blizzard President J. Allen Brack are mentioned in the suit as well, and Afrasiabi's inappropriate behavior was allegedly well known and not handled well by Brack. Afrasiabi did quietly leave the company in 2020, however. Many Blizzard employees have come out about their experiences at the company, and you can read many of them on the WoW reddit here.
      The lawsuit asks for an injunction to force Activision Blizzard to comply with workplace protections, deliver unpaid wages, pay adjustments, back pay, lost wages and benefits for female employees.
      A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard sent a response to IGN, claiming the suit includes "distorted, and in many cases false, descriptions of Blizzard’s past" and that "The picture the DFEH paints is not the Blizzard workplace of today. Over the past several years and continuing since the initial investigation started, we’ve made significant changes to address company culture and reflect more diversity within our leadership teams." There's more to the response which you can read at the end of the article here.
      Here's a link to the full lawsuit, which you should definitely take a look at.
