The whole incident is retarded.

People who get worked up about non-existent people and factions deserve whatever is coming to them from that.

If they brought Lady Gaga or someone to take a pee on the Horde flag next Blizzcon I wouldn't bat an eyelash, nothing would change if she followed that up by calling all Horde fans shitty carpetmunchers (not very likely of her, but it's not like any of this is rational).

Seriously I've about had it with PC, it is just such an unnecessary burden.

You can't run a game company by pissing off fans who've spent hundreds of dollars to come enjoy themselves. Yes there are 12 million+ Blizzard fans, but you have to remember that each time they piss off a significant enough chunk of them they lose more than just an attendee...they lose that customer's future transactions as well. And Blizz relies on customer retention for its games much more so than other companies due to the limited number of products they produce.

It's not PC, it's customer service.

Correct. Blizzard has almost done TOO good with their Horde faction anti-heroes.

The anti-heroes, at this point, are a hell of a lot more compelling than the regular heroes.

And the traditionalists who just want to play a straight-up hero are getting a little tired of it.

I would hope there's a little more Alliance love in Mists. We'll see.

It's an unnecessary burden to avoid deliberately insulting people who give you money for the highly unnecessary stuff you click and type into existence?

I can guarantee you less than 2% of Horde fans have even seen a carpet up close, least of all munch one.

Fact.

We don't always agree, but it's usually awesome when we do.

Pfft, cry me a river honestly.

He insulted the Alliance, he didn't insult anyone's religion for God's sake(at least I hope not /shudder), take it as a joke or look at him in pity, but don't make a donkey out of a mosquito. I swear I had the urge to reach trough the internet and hand out each and every dumbass who threw a hissy fit over this a razor blade. Perhaps with them out of the way we could focus on the real problems of this world, keyword real.


Now as for people who pointed out that Blizzard would lose customers and soon after money. I say who cares. One, those fans leaving would make for a much better game. Two, Blizzard really deserves a kick in the subscriptions so they get off their asses and put genuine effort into this game, like they did before, on all fronts.

It's a moot point anyway, seeing as how Blizzard already apologised and most players have moved on.

The only thing that smells of douchebaggery is that this thread is still going on, and people are still talking about this shit.

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

I sure hope you don't go into anything that requires you to interact with anyone.

... donkey out of a mosquito? That's a new one.

But considering how sports teams are, I wouldn't put it past some people.

Then again, it's all Blizzard's fault for putting in the stupid two faction system in the first place. They've reaped what they have sown, from the first cross faction "u r poopy head" in beta to whatever's brewing up on the forums at this very moment.

And yet you still don't wash behind your filthy, filthy ears.

What would your mother think of that?

Oh wait! She can't!

Because she's now a sheep!
