So that attitude was unnecessary but go off. But he was their co-worker. I’ll grant that I don’t know how many of them are that upset by it, but neither do you. It’s equally as absurd to argue that this change was exclusively for brownie points from the community.
So who’s was it? I doubt the CEO of blizzard made this decision himself.
Uh, see you later or whatever I guess. Far as I’m concerned though a sexual assaulter doesn’t deserve representation in anything positive, let alone a popular character in a game that’s well known. I think it’s a good change
The devs also create and name the characters, make all the art, the UI, the voicework, the menus, etc. I’m not gonna pretend to be knowledgeable about the internal side of Blizzard or game development, but you think this choice was made without even consulting the leading developers? As the community manager said,
It’s a lot of work to pile onto a team already maintaining and developing a game.
Let’s change his name to Whiney McCriesALot to honor the people who are ready to quit the game over a name/lore change.
I mean, minimal new content over the past year, busted cheat detection, a CRAZY long development cycle for a sequel that’s really more of an add-on, poor communication with players, all while groping the employees that they don’t plan to promote…
But yeah it’s the name change that makes you want to quit. “dEy ChAnGeD hIz NaYmE!”
Apparently, a considerable amount of his happiness and fulfillment as an individual hinges on the pixels that represent that character being named “McCree.” If that changes, the best move for him, emotionally, is to move on. And much like the cowboy formerly named McCree himself, he will mosey his way forward new adventures.
This was the straw. I agree. The character at this juncture has nothing to do with the developer. They’re just drawing parallels to get rid of him and satiate shallow minded people into thinking this did ANYTHING. I’ve played since beta, I was already planning to quit with OW2 changes (losing 1 on a 6 team is BLEGH and will unbalance the arcade mode further). So instead of actually working on anything of substance or figure out how they’re going to address their blatant internal issues in the company to get rid of all the scumbags abusing women, they change a fictional character’s name. That is dumb. I’m so just DONE with this company and their vapid and shallow gesturing. Censoring the diablo series while molesting and harassing people. I’ve played your games for over 20 years Blizzard. DONE!
