The gross things I heard from these videos prove without a shadow of a doubt Activision Blizzard is the worst corporation to work under. It abuses its employees, aligns itself with communism, find new ways to nickel-and-dime their gamers, and avoid government scrutiny for a time. That may change when you see these two videos...



Do you think EA is bad after watching these? In my professional opinion, EA is number 3 worst video game company (CD Projekt Red beat them barely by releasing a game full of bugs, glitches, and lies).

I'm surprised a company that aligns with communism is being sued by one of the most communist states in the US. lol the irony

I haven't really seen the details yet, but I'd say the mistreatment of employees and exploitative microtransactions are worse than the "communism" thing. If it's worse than Ubisoft and their rapists? I need to see the details first to judge. Regardless, fuck ActiBlizz.

First of all, not surprising judging by the state of Blizzard.

Second, communism has nothing to do with Blizzard. They're progressive sure, but they are NOT communistic.
Unless you are referring to their dumb decision to suck up to China then I guess, but never "aligning" itself.

And lastly... what "Communist" state in America? You are talking about the most capitalist country in the world. Maybe a little socialist, but "Communist"???

Not every states in the US is the same. Some states in the West Coast tend to be pro-communist for some reason. In California, one of the most diverse states in the entire nation..... has a huge density of Koreans, Japanese, Filipinos, Vietnamese, and Chinese (and more) who are more than happy to voice their concerns for California's local politicians who are turning the state into a pro-communist sanctuary. A lot of these Asian-Americans or Asian-Immigrants are very vocal about their PTSD regarding anything communist, some are even local activists still fighting for their home country.

From an outsider's perspective, it's hard to conceptualize that communism has and been slowly introduced into some states, like California. It does not mean the state is full on communist, which is probably what you are thinking, but it is considerably more pro-communist than the rest of the states.

Anyways, I am not too sure if Blizzard is a communist company or not, but I do find it ironically very funny that if it's true, it would be like the people are suing themselves.

You… don’t actually have a concept of what communism actually is, do you? You post reads like a Facebook mom who’s consumed too much right wing  social media and only knows that communism is a thing you’re supposed to be afraid of and that they have it  in places like California.

Did you get offended somewhere in my post? If so, you can tell me. I'd like to know where or what was it something that I said that hurt you feelings so badly. Like if it was one of those "it's not what you said, it's the WAY you said it" that offended you somewhere? Are you saying I don't have a right to criticize my own state? Lol. I don't even have a facebook account. I give you props for being edgy.

Literally thousands of Asians in California (statewide) are standing with other minorities and ethnic groups to fight against radical communistic ideologies, and yet some random guy on a mugen forum is gonna tell me these people that I met know nothing about what they are talking about? What makes him so sure that he believes all these asians are stupid and clueless dwellers on some right wing propaganda on facebook?

San Francisco sucks though... you guys got lawlessness, people shop lifting in huge amounts, even Target (or Walgreens I forget) had to nerf their curfew times so they dont get jacked. You guys got a sucky mayor and a sucky DA. Asians being attacked and robbed, their livelihoods being destroyed. Homelessness everywhere, smells bad, looks bad... not the same SF I knew growing up in the Bay. And no... anything Chinese does not equate to communism. If that was the case, then the hundreds of California Chinese that I met would not be rallying against communism. Why would they protest or rally against themselves?

jmorphman a communist sympathizer confirmed.


communist part of this scandal might be because they are selling data for the ccp , probably credit cards details too.  china isn't a communist country anymore though they like to flip flop a lot between being a capitalist and communist depending where they can benefit.

kinda sad to hear what blizzard had become.

That's just baffling.

No way in hell is California being turned into a communist state. That's absurd and factually false.
You know why? There's a thing called free market in America. That in and of itself is antithetical to communism.

You need to realize communism isn't the opposite of democracy. It's actually the opposite of capitalism (& fascism).
"Dictatorship" is what you're probably looking for.

This scandal is specifically about the horrific work environment they've cultivated; I dunno how the fuck it got immediately derailed into ravings about communism.

So let's all try and get back on topic.

I don't have a lot to offer without getting into it and going over all the details of this actual case, but on Blizzard as a whole...

kinda sad to hear what blizzard had become.
This.  I really try to stay detached from Blizzard for the most part for years now.  Revisited Diablo 3 earlier this year to see if it was still as bad as people made it out to be, but that's about it.  Not interested in Overwatch as it is and am largely ignorant on the finer details on their other ventures, beyond Bungie cutting the cord from them.  But man, I really miss when they were the gold standard of PC gaming, getting everyone on Warcraft III or StarCraft and just doing stupid stuff like playing Protoss and using Dark Archons to steal Zerg Drones and Terran SCVs and playing as all three species at once, breaking the unit cap.  Or all the custom hero campaigns people made for Warcraft III and shared online.

While not NEARLY as abhorrent as Blizzard is accused of, it reminds me of 343.  Specifically how all the inspiration and lifeblood of the company former is just....gone.  The properties remain but not helmed by anyone who cares.  Or at least the verdict is still out on 343 with their latest venture at least, but that's a topic for another day.  Blizzard....man, I didn't even care for freaking WoW.

I suppose the point of that somewhat disconnected rant was that yeah, this doesn't surprise me if it's true.  Which is ultimately a big shame on them.

This issue has a ton of parallels to what Ubisoft is going through right now, even down to the fact that employee abuse was swept under the rug.

I don't know if the lawsuit will do anything.. maybe that is just me being a bit pessimistic here.

Don't worry, we've got you covered and have taken further measures to put this idiotic tangent to rest.

Subsequent replies of this nature will continue to be deleted. But I'd recommend not testing that out.
