    Interesting selection of heroes they offer in the starter pack. Figured they'd want to give out one character of each role (Tank, Healer, Bruiser, Melee/Ranged Assassin) instead of doubling down on Bruiser and Ranged Assassin. It's weird not to include a Tank or Healer.

    Then again, the roles weren't set in stone back then, so maybe it was just launch silliness.

    On the roles, yeah, they were different. Sonya would've been considered a Tank and Li Li is a Healer, so that's a pretty good spread already. Zeratul for melee Assassin, Jaina for ranged, and then Zagara as Specialist covers all your bases, really.

    Li Li has never been a healer. :)

    Wait, people are only demanding and/or realizing it now? They didn't think he already knew what seems to be like the worst kept secret at Blizzard? How would he not have known when basically everyone else already did?

    The article is not just that he knew about it, but was a major abuser too, with allegations of threatening to kill employees, and firing employees when they reported sexual harassment.

    I'm entirely unsurprised, although the specifics are new.

    I misread the sexual harassing flight attendant part. It was a pilot who did it on a private jet he co-owned, and when she complained, he threatened and fired her.

    Which, you know, ain't much better! But I read that wrong.

    No, it's more that if they do a walkout and he doesn't get ousted, they're turbofucked. It's just that only now do they think there's enough public awareness of Kotick's bullshit to get any movement on it.

    And that folks is called leverage 8-)

    But yeah proof is in the pudding and all. We all knew Bobby was a shitlord, but there wasn't much behind the argument of "Remove Bobby for being Bobby". Now they have a pretty solid reason!

    I get your point, and it's not wrong really at all. But enough employees walk out and say why...they're the work force, and that's kinda all the leverage you need? They all get fired and good luck for acti/blizz to turn that around in any short span of time. It definitely is a real risk though without the added leverage they have now, it would almost depend entirely on how many employees supported and did the walk out.

    Also, again I honestly thought this was already known. I guess I was just assuming, but obviously that wasn't much of a stretch to make.

    I lied. I'm going to make the new thread.

    It would drive me nuts if I didn't.

    LOL. I was going to make the new thread at page 100, if only to assert more thread dominance on the front page. :)
