Hmmm this morning the diablo trailer had 9.7k likes and 313k dislikes... now suddenly its dropped to 200k?

The top comment was reposted 15 times with over 4k likes within 40 minutes each time... now suddenly can't post anymore.

Blizz in damage control mode? Thoughts?
Prove that you can buy votes on Youtube, now we can confirm that Google are just like Yelp and Amazon.
c'mon Blizzard, play nice, play fair

Leftists thinking they can make a terrible game and not suffer consequences because they are PC.

Blizzard is imploding. Kinda fun to watch, like a slow moving train careening uncontrollably towards a cliff.
Yup. I saw it too. They’re shutting down criticism. This is the new Blizzard.
Last time I looked it was over 260k. That was hours ago but yes, many seemed to have vanished. Mayube some of them were bots. Still, 215k vs 9.9k is yuge.

are you sure you're on the same trailer? they did re-upload it several times
I mean... that's gotta be a bug, right?

I have literally never heard of this even being a possibility. I was expecting them to just turn off the rating altogether, but how do you actually delete 100K dislikes?
Different uploads.
Last I checked it was 309k now its at 214k. How?
I remember some years back I made a WoW post here on the forums criticizing Blizzard (Edit - not Blizzard specifically, but the state of WoW in WoD). It got 500 up votes but mysteriously the up votes were completely reset to zero.

Others pointed it out in the thread as well so it wasn't just on my end. I've made 10k posts here and that's the first time I've ever seen that happen

Definitely makes me suspect Blizzard is up to some fishy stuff

I just refreshed one of the videos and it went from 77k dislikes to 39k. Something was done.

Can't seem to care. If I cared, I'd be in the Diablo forums.
Somehow i think Wyatt made some calls to the granola munchers over at YT

Wyatt: Hey all these downvotes are making me cry......im really really sad!!! *sniff*

Youtube: Dont worry dude well just take off one third of those "toxic masculine" downvotes

Wyatt; thank you thank you....you have made a special safe space just for me....
Now i'm really crying, crying with tears of so much joy!!! Hoooray!

It's not. I've been monitoring the dislike count on the video in question and snapshotting many of the dislike counters. It was definitely over 300K last I checked. Then I refresh the page and boom; 215K.

Unless the video was being bombarded by bot accounts I have no idea how you can prevent dislikes on your video.
Let’s see if they move this thread to some dead forum:

Different upload would have a different upvote, it's the same upvotes number, they only changed the downvote. Amateur hours at damage control from Blizzard.

That's the original that I know for a fact had over 260k dislikes earlier today. Now it's 215k.

There were different uploads of the same vid but the other went to unlisted.
Also worth noting in the youtube comments section people are complaining about deleted comments

By continually re-uploading the video.
