Blizzard has been hard at work de--iffying all of their games. This is solely to distance themselves from the decades of sexual harassment and the resulting lawsuits. From replacing scandalous paintings with paintings of fruit bowls, to the addition of a incubus so warlocks wouldn't be forced to use a succubus. They even renamed "The Knicker" to "Blackrock Slicer"
They've just launched the beta for WotLK Classic and renamed the ability "Every man for themselves" to "Will to Survive". While this does seem like a perfect example of virtue signaling from a company desperate to distance themselves from a history of sexual harassment, redditers can't help but make smug posts and comments about it. OP had the idea to crypost about people crying about a name change. Lots of I AM SILLY vibes
This guy is unironically right even if he doesn't know it.
Redditers will flipflop between hating blizzard for not standing up to China, and threatening to quit and over their next shitty video game.
I am someone as far left as you could possibly be, and this change honestly just pisses me off. The fruit and incubus too. It's such transparent corporate pandering and what the term virtue signalling was made for, just a shame it's been taken over by right wing idiots, because this is exactly what Blizzard is doing. Like, oh thank you so much Blizzard, this really makes everyone forget about all the sexual assaults and suicides. Good for youuuuuuuuu!
Lots of sneed in this chain
This same guy who loves Woosh posting
Long chain of people arguing if it's ironic or hypocritical.
