Wouldn't re-uploading clear out my dislike? It's still there. In the same video I have bookmarked since yesterday, minus a large amount of dislikes.

*takes the tinfoil hat off for a moment*

Maybe people were creating bogus accounts to downvote?

Even if every person who downvoted it had 5 accounts, that's still 40k downvotes.

Most people who downvoted it just did it once and done. No one but the most fanatical of dedicated trolls is going to have more than maybe 2 accounts, or even more than 1.
Yeah, if there’s 5 people who went to the trouble of creating multiple google accounts just to leave downvotes on a video I’d be surprised. And if people really think that Google doesn’t have a close relationship with companies like Blizzard I don’t know what to say.
Another fun video!

Please tell me there's a Hitler version... That meme needs a revival.

Oh, hey. There is!

I'm sure a huge percentage of those downvotes were from fraudulent Russian hacker accounts. You know, traitor Rump's buddies at it again.

r/Diablo is lit right now.
No pun.
It's ok, I grabbed screenshots when it was at 117k last evening, as I am sure many people did. They can close their eyes all they like, reality's still gonna be there.

No Last night and earlier today there were some well thought out comments why this will bite the company in the backside there was nothing rude in the comments or anything hurtful just how the game is not even welcomed by the chinese either who hate Netease as well Now those post are gone and they were heavily up voted.


Yes because sowing discord, being negative without any basis, spreading falsehoods without corroborating evidence seems appropriate.

Nobody has played the full game, yet everyone seems to know how it will perform.

God forbid Blizzard try to expand their brand into other markets, I will certainly take the word of internet trolls over an established game development company with over 20 years of game development, makes sense.

You have completely missed the point.

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?


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.
People who complain about people being "PC" play the same notes as the politically correct. They whine and get offended over everything they don't like to hear. Bringing politics into a game discussion is passive/aggressive beta behavior.

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....

BLIZZARD AND YOUTUBE REMOVED 100K DISLIKES FROM THE ORIGINAL TRAILER AND OTHER VIDEOS TOO,

THEY ARE ALTERING VIEW COUNTERS.

RISE UP AGAINST CENSORSHIP!!!!

I didnt know you could pay on youtube to remove downvotes... is this real life? How is this the world we are entering?
Hey, we live in a world where you can suppress votes, why not downvotes on a video?
#fakenews
It's been confirmed through socialblade and archive sites that Blizzard deleted over 14,000 comments and over 110,000 ratings off their Diablo youtube video

The video was NOT reuploaded but rather directly manipulated by Google/Blizzard.

It's worth noting too various screenshots show the likes staying the same while the downvotes are getting chopped by 10k+ every so often

Blizzard is trying to censor outrage and Youtube is deleting dislikes. This is quite the spicy meme.

Different uploads.
Not so. If you look at social blade it reveals the true numbers. Blizz either has friends in Google/Youtube or is working directly with them to get rid of the bad numbers. You'll notice that the upvotes never go down, so It can't be a re-upload. The only number that declines is the downvotes.

Archive pages reveal this to be true, or confirms it. Socialblade cannot be wrong in this because the Archival Caches show it has the same URL from before till now, going through that shows that the number of comments and down votes repeatedly fluctuates. The upvotes continually rise, never decline.

There is no way this isn't deliberate manipulation and damage control.

You guys know what this means don't you?

[Hushed Voice] There are only 314k people still playing wow.[/Hushed Voice]

Why do people care so much? I mean do you really sit there and check it over and over? Is that how little you have going on in your life? I mean I just don't get why some people are so hung up on a Diablo mobile game they aren't going to play. Your dislikes on that video aren't going to magically make them change everything. Too much money/time has already been spent.

We're trying to keep a decent company from driving off a cliff. Make a new IP if you want to dabble in mobile games. Leave our beloved alone! We want good games from them not games you play while you wait at the DMV, doctor's office or the crapper!

The world doesn't really need more of those.
