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.

Yea but in ten out of ten cases, where a country goes for communism they get a fascistic Dictatorship in the end, that tells the poor how bad capitalism is while the upper class uses the "evil capitalism" to stay in power.


But to get back to the real topic here, I'm not suprised that Activision Blizzard is Getting Sued, the old Blizzard that was build by dedicated people, is long gone, it is basicaly 100% Activision at this point.

Btw. Apparently a lot of players leaving WoW now for Final Fantasy, at least thats what many people say right now.^^

These news should bring back the subject.


Furthermore, to make matters worse, this was all happening in the days of Mike Morhaime.

First, doesn't allow people to have a voice (Blitzchung controversy) and being a huge hypocrite. And now this... This bunch of absurd and disgusting behavior!

"Congrats" Activision/Blizzard, now you're definitely screwed!

I was wondering if I should download a pirated version of any Blizzard game, but I'm starting to think I will do it on principle.

While people who work in software don't unionize and organize, abuse will carry on.

Workers' organizations are the best (and AFAIK, the only) way to stop these shitty practices.

More things got revealed... It gets worse... WAY worse and even more disgusting!!!

Vice said:
In 2018, a former Activision Blizzard IT worker installed cameras in the company's Minnesota office bathroom with the intent to spy on employees while they used the toilet, according to court records reviewed by Waypoint and local media reports from the time.

The employee, Tony Ray Nixon, pleaded guilty to "Interference with Privacy," a gross misdemeanor, and was given a suspended prison sentence; he later allegedly violated his parole requiring him to take "sex offender treatment as directed." Nixon worked for Activision Blizzard in Eden Prairie Minnesota, where the company maintains a building that focuses on quality assurance.

Blizzard President steps down and will be replaced by two “coleaders”.

Bloomberg said:
Blizzard President J. Allen Brack is leaving the company amid a cultural reckoning at parent Activision Blizzard Inc. over a California lawsuit alleging sexual discrimination and harassment.

Brack’s departure was disclosed in an email to staff Tuesday, which was reviewed by Bloomberg. Brack will be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra, the new “coleaders” of Blizzard. The shares were down more than 4% in the first hour of trading Tuesday.

Blizzard, maker of the Warcraft and Diablo games, was the main subject of accusations contained in the lawsuit from a California state agency. Many of the allegations took place before Brack was named president in 2018.

Still, Brack came under intense scrutiny after the complaint was filed over his leadership style. A video of Brack at a company event in 2010 resurfaced on social media, showing him on a panel with colleagues laughing off a question from a woman about the sexualization of female characters in the World of Warcraft game.

Oneal ran an Activision game studio called Vicarious Visions before joining Blizzard as an executive in January. Ybarra worked at Microsoft Corp. for nearly 20 years and managed Xbox online services before going to Blizzard in 2019.

In a statement, Brack said his successors “can be trusted to lead with the highest levels of integrity and commitment to the components of our culture that make Blizzard so special.”

It could be both, but enough talk: it's time to show:

This video proves that the company is naught by a criminal organization and the employees are doing slave labor.

Activision Blizzard King just took care of a "distraction" in exchange for favor.
