There's been a lot of talk about what's going on at Blizzard lately, and WoW influencers like Asmongold, Bellular, Hazel, and Taliesin & Evitel have also weighed in on the situation. Well-known WoW personalities like Preach and Madseason have even completely burned all bridges with WoW and will no longer be producing WoW content after all these years.
Asmongold echoes what some players in the community are currently feeling as well. For some, it feels strange to be playing Blizzard games in this situation. As a streamer, Asmongold even feels like he has to justify why he streams Blizzard games. As a fan of the MMO genre, that's why he's been streaming Final Fantasy 14 and New World more often lately. For him, the situation is so stressful that it even feels weird to have WoW music playing in his stream at the moment.
Bellular is visibly shaken by the details of the indictment, which he lists again for viewers. He still can't really believe the state of the corporate culture at Blizzard. He hopes that if there's no change in management after this story, at least employees will take better care of each other and not keep quiet when something like this happens again.
Hazel briefly recaps the details, but the focus is on Blizzard's response, which is insufficient. She addresses the J. Allen Brack emails leaked by Jason Schreier and the statement from Fran Townsend. Despite the heavy details of the indictment, Hazel probably has the best and most sober summary of the situation out of all the influencers. According to her, for now, we can be glad that the lawsuit is now being handled by courts and will probably be judged fairly.
Taliesin again makes it clear that this is a systematic problem in the company, which is not new, but also happened during the time of the "old Blizzard".
According to Taliesin, players who have now made the decision not to renew their subscription should be respected. And also not attack those who continue to play anyway.
