World of Warcraft Streamers/Content Creators Talk About the Lawsuit

Recommended Posts

 

0620yM9.jpg

Today, we are looking at what streamers/content creators have to say about the ongoing lawsuit.

Last week, The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued Activision Blizzard over "frat boy" culture. The lawsuit was filed after a two-year investigation by the state agency, according to Bloomberg.

Since then, Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees. The former CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime later also came forward with his own statement.

More than 1,000 current and former Blizzard employees signed an open letter, condemning the company's responses, and sent it to multiple publications.

World of Warcraft content creators also had their say and shared their thoughts about the recent events at Activision Blizzard. Below, we include links to their videos. Watch what Asmongold, Bellular, Hazel, Preach, and Taliesin & Evitel think about the lawsuit.

Heelvsbabyface has done one even though he doesn't play WoW anymore and does cover news pertaining to WoW time to time.  But the message is the same.  What was done and continues to be done is wrong.  If you can not treat another human being with dignity, respect, and kindness and resort to bigotry, racisim, womanizing, belittling, narcissitic arsehole tendancies then you are the problem.  And you don't deserve anything.  No remorse, no sympathy, no empathy for the light being shone on the actions that have been comitted. 

Talking about rape and prostitution while on the job is wrong.

Passing around nudes of female employees is wrong.

Bragging about if said person is good in the sack is wrong.

If you as a person think that the Lawsuit is highly questionable ask yourself this:   Would you be alright if it were your sister? Cousin? Wife?  Girlfriend? Close friend that went through this?  No you wouldn't you would be disgusted if it happen to them.

Why am I 'ranting' about this?  Because I, a woman, have experience sexual harassment while on the job.  The dread of going to work and not knowing how your superior is going to behave?  Hearing and seeing him fondling/groping female employees.  Having other female co-workers speak out to you and not knowing on what to do because they need the job.

Well, it really shines through that some of these internet-celebrities never ever had an actual job at an actual company. As much as I respect self-employed content creators and enterpreneurs it seems a bit of hypocrisy that they talk about a worplace scandal, while they may not even fully understand the context of a workplace (a pre-COVID workplace obviously).

And of course it's great to hear there are some clear voices as well, apart from that.

Sorry you've been through a lot, but holding 2000 employees accountable for what a very very select few did isn't right either. I agree there are things that shouldn't be talked about at work but people need thicker skin. Ive worked in Corp world for a long time and I can tell you first hand, that its not just guys who say inappropriate *filtered*. Ive heard just as many women make off color jokes but yet its OK when they do it because they are women. Ive seen women make plays for a guy at work  and the feelings aren't mutual, then the woman becomes a nightmare to the point the guy ended up quitting. And since the aggressor was a women it is downplayed and laughed off. There is a HUGE double standard. With blizzard and the fact that it involved a senior manager and the whole damn world is WOKE now... there are walk outs.. Hell I'm surprised there wasn't a full scale protest with looting and riots...

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.

      In something that has now become a new WoW tradition, players have been gathering to celebrate the end of Summer as we now have a very thematic seasonal clock in the game! The circle is complete as we've now seen all 4 variations of the mount in-game as well.
      While WoW is pretty static when it comes to seasons and, well, time in general, we now have a really cool connection to the real world in the form of the Wandering Ancient tree mount, so we'll be seeing gatherings like these below a lot!

      Source: Galaxy_119.
      And some will be showing the tree off in its natural habitat, proving that even ancients can be VERY stealthy in the right conditions:

      Source: drinnster.
      The Wandering Ancient is really awesome and adds extra interactivity and "feel" of the world - definitely one of the better additions to WoW in recent memory and we hope to see these little changing of seasons rituals continue on forever!
      In case you're new or missed when the mount arrived, it should be in your mount collection tab already as  gift if you have Shadowlands purchased, now head on out there and showcase the new Fall colors!
