*So here I was, minding my own business when Samus informs me of the massive layoffs that just went on over at Activision Blizzard. You remember them, don't you? The antagonists of FOREVER GOLDEN, and the ones whose guild masters and other GMs chased a lot of us out. Well, first, let me start this off by saying I feel for those who got a layoff. Maybe they'll get jobs in places where the companies will appreciate them more than Blizzard ever did. Blizzard only cares about two things: money and maintaining a bully-friendly environment. Let me remind all the new people reading this why yours truly, Samus and the more experienced people hate that company: in 2011, a creep named Andrew Rotramel conspired to force us out by any means necessary after Zenon exposed him for the rat he is. He started with Stargirl, who was the victim of a gold selling scam. Then it snowballed to the rest of us to the point where we left that hideous world of Azeroth on May 5, 2011. After some time, a lot of us settled in the far superior world of Norrath(EQ2) where we continue to hang our hats. However, from the stories I've been hearing, the nightmares wrought by Blizzard did not end with our departure. In fact, they got worse. And with each expansion released, the stories of people quitting in droves continued to come out. And now, this sick, twisted company wants to tell people that their games are going along fine in spite of the fact that they just layed off hundreds of people. That's hundreds of human beings with livelihoods that have now been put on hold. People want to say that EA is the worst gaming company on the planet. Maybe. Their sports games aren't what they used to be. But you don't see EA pulling the kind of crap we're now seeing with Blizzard. It's been almost 8 years since we walked out of WOW. I have never been happier that we did, especially in light of today's news.
