I’m going to talking about how Blizzard treats their community who opposes them.
Let’s use the Mercy rework for an example;
So “recently” there has been a big uproar in the community about Mercys rework.
People have said she’s balanced and other’s says she’s not. Yet those who disagree with this rework are automatically thrown out the window and called “a salty Mercy main” and are even punished for giving their opinion about this hero.
Just like Titanium, a regular person who just posts threads on here.
Titanium has been suspended due to talking about Mercys current state, and you can check out the link here; Why I Have Yet to Not Despise Mercy's Current State
This person was just simply stating their opinion about Mercy and how… “impactful” she is currently.
Yet for some unjustified reason Titanium got suspended for “trolling” and “spamming”.
This thread reached the #1 spot for quite a bit (Lol, I’d rather say less than a day) and even given those Mercy players a voice, a speck of hope that the devs would reconsider Mercys rework, yet Blizzard comes in and shuts them down.
But thats not quite it.
Remember how Blizzard doesn’t want a toxic community? Heh. That’s a funny joke.
Actually hypocritical of them supporting a toxic community by supporting “OWL/Overwatch League” who pokes fun at Mercy mains and how they claim them to be ‘salty’ and to ‘get over it’, here’s the link to a video; https://youtu.be/R5sjXnXMISk
(Warning: the video has a bit of mild language but explains way better on what I’m trying to say.)
But it’s not /just/ those who play Mercy, it’s about other people who play hero’s like Roadhog, Sym, Bastion, Rein, etc,.
There’s been so many threads and people talking about how their main didn’t deserve a certain rework or nerf, yet the Devs don’t even spare a glance at them or if they do, they shut them down and they’re never heard of again.
So let me ask a few questions;
Are we really going to get punished for giving our opinion about a hero? Is that how they wanna treat their community? Do we want to support a community like this?
What would you do if your main got nerfed to the ground/reworked where they were the LEAST impactful?
(I kinda rushed on making this so sorry if my grammar/spelling is incorrect)
