Recommended Posts

In their continued effort to remove inappropriate references from the game, Blizzard desexualized two paintings in this week's Patch 9.1.5 Build 40196.

The first in-game painting of a woman was completely replaced with a fruit painting. We compare both paintings below.

Old 9.1.0 Painting

New 9.1.5 Painting

The second painting is an update that adds more armor and fidelity.

Blizzard continues to remove inappropriate references from the game. In Patch 9.1.5 alone, they renamed multiple achievements, Mac'Aree to Eredath, and more.

I mean kinda makes sense when you're dealing with *filtered* abuse issues.

Do you want people to react sexually to what you're doing and saying or not?

That's what should determine what you do and say.

yeah cause something that's more tame than what you would see at a beach is wwwwaaaayyy worse than going around physically abusing and killing untold numbers of sentient beings.  It's nothing more than a low attempt at pandering so they can say they did "something" instead of fixing the actual issues.

Who cares, we still have Maldraxxus with naked hot chicks like hulking abominations and monstrosities with female voices but zero feminine features - sexual objectification 101, I'm surprised it still stays as it is.

This is getting really head-scratching for me. Like, I noticed last night Dreadscar Rift has a cushioned area with loads of succubi stood around it. How is that not the same as the top painting? How is the succubus model not the same as the top painting? Is the brothel in Boralus not equally as discomforting? Just off the top of my head.

They're never going to touch things like the succubus model, let alone player armour. That'd bring backlash. They're just going to go for easy things -- and I can see both good and poor justifications for that.

But I don't understand how this line is drawn. It's gonna be really shaky. And the more they change, the wonkier the line becomes because of what remains.

Unless they're just throwing random stuff at their interns as practice.

Yes,they've solved it,finally they understood ! Change in-game artwork to truly reflect upon your past mistakes,and redeem yourselves in the eyes of those who were harassed.By the gods ,why didn't they think of this sooner ?!

The battle continues ,as our brave warriors continue to struggle against injustice ! What will happen you ask ? Find out next time on Dragon Ba....I mean on Blizzard Ball Y !

Ok,now I am very well aware how sarcasm and mockery are dripping from my upper text , to me this is like putting a band aid on your arm when you clearly cut your leg,useless and pointless. Ok I get it,remove any trace of people who are directly involved,but this is a bit excessive,they are looking for problems that aren't there, and don't mean to be an *filtered* about it , but repixiling and reworking some artwork in-game won't fix any issues they have in the workplace just to make it seem like they're the "good guys" . Bash away if you don't agree,just my two cents .

Deeply retarded..

Another censoring because of this new time of bunch of stupid people crying for everything about everything on anybody.

 

This is pure censoring and this era start to came close to world's dictatorship.

 

Let the *filtered* freedom of expression in PEACE for *filtered* sake and just get the f*ck out all of these toxic nazis who wants to steal our freedom.

These portraits were such low quality, they were barely noticeable. No point in changing them, especially when they don't show more than a skimpy transmog would allow.

Sexuality is fine - sexual abuse is not.

Censoring one does not erase the other.

Asking for attention to your sexuality with your dress and then getting it and being appalled doesn't make sense to me.

Equating dressing in a manner you enjoy with consent to abuse doesn't make sense to me.

I don't care if you're dressed in leather bondage gear, including a ball gag and hood, that doesn't mean I've got the go ahead to abuse you, verbally or otherwise.

No it doesn't mean someone has the go ahead to do those things.

It does mean that you personally have significantly invited them to travel that road in their mind. Which ultimately leads to some people turning thoughts into reality.

Acting on thoughts is a personal responsibility, full stop.

      The eighth week of Shadowlands Season 4 ends with the weekly maintenance on Tuesday, and we're looking at how the Mythic+ tier list has shifted, based on the data from Subcreation.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and it doesn't look at keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      Therefore, the data presented in this news post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale, they're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List in Shadowlands Season 4 Week 8
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 26,165 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +34. 
      S-Tier: Blood Death Knight (200.47 lb_ci) B-Tier: Protection Paladin (184.19 lb_ci) Brewmaster Monk (182.45 lb_ci) Protection Warrior (180.50 lb_ci) Vengeance Demon Hunter (178.21 lb_ci) B-Tier: Guardian Druid (164.29 lb_ci)
      Healer Tier List
      Based on 26,163 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +34.
      S-Tier: Holy Priest (200.41 lb_ci) A-Tier: Restoration Shaman (189.20 lb_ci) (down from S-Tier) B-Tier: Restoration Druid (183.79 lb_ci) (down from A-Tier) C-Tier: Holy Paladin (173.73 lb_ci) (down from A-Tier) Mistweaver Monk (170.01 lb_ci) (down from B-Tier) D-Tier: Discipline Priest (164.02 lb_ci) (down from C-Tier)

      Starter Builds are preset talent builds created for players who prefer not to choose their own talents yet, but want a decent build that is suitable for most content.
      For now, Starter Builds are only available to Evokers on the Dragonflight Beta, but all classes will have them when the new expansion launches.
      How Do Starter Builds Work?
      Switch to your desired Specialization. From the Loadout Tab dropdown, select Starter Build.

      Dollie and Dot, our favorite alpacas from Vol'dun, are returning in Dragonflight!
      The alpacas are well-known from Vol'dun, the zone native to the Vulpera. Back in Battle for Azeroth, Meerah was singing to Dolly and Dot while they were riding a caravan to the Temple of Akunda in Vol'dun.
      In 2019, Blizzard even sold a Dottie plushie and to this day, you can buy Dottie in WoW as an in-game pet.
      If you're a fan of Dolly and Dot, you'll be happy to hear both will be returning in Dragonflight! Samuraislider found them in the Dragon Isles.
