I am so tired of any time anyone defends a position now a days it being boiled down to so idiotic political stance. Grow up Blizz, people are able to have rational thought and discourse without siding on a political spectrum. UGH!
well i've never been much into trump at all but i thank him for this one!

stupid phone games.

His tariffs cost me my job for one, thankfully good friends and good luck landed me on my feet.

Really sucks, since I had just started that job and really enjoyed it.


In the short term there will be pain and that is unfortunate. The good news is with the booming economy there are more good jobs than people to fill them. My company has been trying to get people all year and we pay great starting pay for our trade.


SO I should be happy Trumps tariffs cost me my job, I should have been elated when I had to file for unemployment, and I should have praised his name as I worried about how I was going to keep my roof over my head and my lights on?

Nah I'll just vote for the other guy.

PS: The economy lost all of its gains from 2017 already and employee wages are still stagnant.
Told they were Democrats socialism ppl. You can see it in the game.

Holy flying bejeezus on a pogo stick...

If you're the voice, or a voice, of a business, run all of your external communication by a community manager, or maybe even a physiologist, BEFORE posting it.

I'm not kidding. You do want to be genuine, but the pressure of these kinds of sudden, negative events is intense, and can accentuate and warp the usual cognitive bias into really stupid levels. Don't take the organization, and the livelihood of everyone else who works for it, with you. The phrase "My views are my own" means nothing to the eye of the consumers in our current politically charged climate.
Are you familiar with Jessica Price's departure from Guild Wars?

I kind of agree with him. It's not really exclusive to pro-Trump though people though. People on both sides have really started to lower the standard of acceptable discussion over the last few years.

Pro-Trumpers are emboldened and anti-Trumpers are frustrated. As a result both sides have thrown civil discussion out the window and everybody has the overly extremist "if you disagree with me you're a f****** moron and you should go die" mentality. People don't just argue facts anymore without making overly obnoxious personal attacks against each other.


I blame the mockingbird media and the NPCs who believe it.

It's still going. People still thinking this was a Blizzard dev.

It's like reading is hard. It's only a seven page thread with one-liner comments. You can afford a second to read before you type, if not at least a few minutes to verify the information first.

Jesus Christ this world is doomed.

It needs to be 404'd. That's the only way to stop it.

I'm bowing out of this thread.

Yep. It was a great troll post I guess.

Hey it's about an Anti-Trumper laying blame on Trump for Diablo Immortal's poor reception. Not like the Anti-Trumpers can claim that they are superior here.

We "Anti-Trumpers" prefer the title, "Pro-Common-Sensers" or "Pro-Human-Decency-Supporters."


You must be a liberal.
Incredible.

I doubt it was a troll post. The OP seems genuine.

This is just a perfect representation of false information being swallowed whole by the very people who post on this forums.

The "conservatives" aren't making a good case for themselves by being gullible enough to fall for the OP without informing themselves first.

(I use quotes because conservatism isn't a sect but an ideology)

What policies of the left would be prosperous for you?

It sounds like you just took a job with a terrible company. My wife quit her stagnant job after 20 years for a competing company doing the same thing. She makes around $3k MORE a month all in part due to the economic boom.
I’m as lib as they come and I think this is dumb. It’s pissing on your playerbase chasing the Pokémon go money guys not trump this time.

You can't stop posting in it, are you that triggered over something so silly?
I'm trying to follow the logic.
If Trump isn't president then nobody gets angry at a game company. Seems legit.
