People who own businesses need to learn: psychopaths with no talent but all-credential are rampant. They will invade your business like locusts and leave it in far worse shape than it was in to begin with. Hire and promote those that show little ambition, refuse to arbitrarily conform, and above all have an excellent sense of humor if you want your ship to sail.

You don't get to be more hated than EA without working very hard at it

It's been a lot longer than 3 years.

All that, and the article skipped right over Metzen leaving? Dude took the heart of the company with him.

Activision and Kotick has been screwing Blizzard's corpse for a long time. The current mess of shiat is all self inflicted and been going on for a lot longer than just 3 years.

There's two issues with Blizzard. One was toxic players. I know a lot of people came into WoW from EQ from teh top tier raid guilds that were known jerks. Some of the War3 web admins too. The other was Activision, the financials got ahold of them. It's really sad. I had some great times with their games. It seems like a lot of the old guard left the company 2 years ago when the investigation started. Then they fired the most notorious one last year. Small gains I guess. But that wont get rid of the accountants. Given them firing all their QA, that's worse than ever.

Sociopaths are literally the worst people to be in charge of anything because sociopaths have the absolute WORST ability of any human to assess risk because deep inside they believe the ultimate goal and purpose of the universe is to give them everything they want. Any normally functioning human being would be able to figure out that when you turn your workplace into a frat party it won't be long until that workplace isn't able to function properly because there's a reason most business transactions don't take place at frat parties.

Also, talent is nothing special. As a person who has spent most of his adult life working in the entertainment industry let me tell you, talent is freaking everywhere. There are 8 billion of us on this planet. There are many areas in which my talents put me in a very high upper percentile but on a planet of 8 billion people there are still a couple million people more talented than me. A talented sociopath isn't special because he's too talented to be replaced. No matter how talented that sociopath is there are a few million people more talented than him on this planet. Don't tolerate sociopaths being sociopathic just because they have "talent". You can find more talented people who are not sociopaths to do the job. Nobody's talent makes them irreplaceable.

How to ruin a company?  hire sociopaths.  yea, they might seem like a good idea at "getting things done" but they cause people to hate their job and leave, only leaving sycophants

Why the fark do people get shocked and whine when long term people leave a company? fark, after 20 years in a game company you WANT to get the fark out with what players have turned into these days.

Bunch of spoiled whiny pieces of shiat who will do anything to tank you if they dont get what their fat entitled asses are deluded enough to think they "deserve". Why in gods name would you want to stay in a job where you are the target of all of that (for usually no reason)

Holy shiat, THIIIIIIIIS.

You can teach things to someone who is good to work with, because if they're smart enough to care about treating people well, they're smart enough to take a class, or study some examples, or otherwise gain skill at something. Investment on that front will pretty much always pay out.

I've worked with people who were only out for themselves on projects where they had to work in teams. One was in a leadership position, one was a teammate, a bunch wanted the power of a leader but the responsibilities of a junior and carte blanche to abuse people. None of them finished a project.

They overloaded people with work because they didn't bother to check in. They made decisions for the group without bothering to consider how it will impact the group. They undermined teammates out of thoughtlessness and then were surprised these same people were unwilling to invest time and effort. Drove people away by engaging in Mean Girls level bullshiat gossip because who the fark knows. Shat on people's work to their faces and then were surprised when people called them assholes. Threatened to steal work because no one was 'listening' to their shiatty ideas that didn't work. Dug in their heels and nurtured resentment because they didn't like people not liking their ideas and methods when they were bad ideas and methods that led nowhere and didn't work. Bailed when they decided no, this next contest with hundreds of entries, a purse that wouldn't cover a month of living expenses, necessitated giving up the IP rights, and demanded more than their skill level would somehow lead to a better career. Kept throwing good money after bad because they couldn't accept that things weren't working and they needed something to prove they knew what they were doing and their time wasn't wasted. Let their long-suffering teammates get abused, and didn't step in to help them or sort out the abuser because "I'm trying to be fair," but in reality the abuser could make it look like they were getting things done and knew just enough social manipulation to make the sunk cost fallacy of their retention seem reasonable.

None of 'em learned shiat all and none of those projects succeeded. I'm watching the last one I was involved in and left in solidarity after mistreatment of a friend -- the sunk cost fallacy asshole situation -- start to crash and burn from mismanagement.

Few things get as toxic as a selfish dumbass with ambition.

It's the problem with authority in general.  The people that actually want to be in charge of other people absolutely should not be because they don't even get, or care, that they then become responsible for those other people and what they do on the clock.

It's why you get so many idiots and sociopaths in management.  The idiots don't realize what they're getting into, and they typically don't last long once it hits them.  The sociopaths just don't care.

A good manager is the exactly right kind of crazy.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Blizzard died the day Activision bought them.


Blizzard died around 9 years prior to that. Early into World of Warcraft if not earlier like during WoW's development.

WoW was the turn from a company making games that were fun, to a subscription cash cow hellbent on profit... And battle.net was proof they weren't ready for it even if it wouldn't have been about profit. Toxic players, D2's item duping, the money outside the game...

Activision bought a shiny corpse.

I cannot believe how far the company has fallen. I was a massive fan of everything blizzard from Warcraft 2 - Liche King and then it was if the company just stopped developing good/original content.

Hopefully Bethesda does not meet the same fate.

Toxic players should have no bearing on how management treats its workers, unless the toxic players are also the managers. Those are two separate issues.

The thing is: those people are kinda like a drug. Because while yes, eventually, they'll gut your business and leave it a shell of what it once was, for a little bit they're gonna goose your bottom line. And then they'll keep showing you the numbers, and things keep looking good. Looking great. Until you find out that was just the drug talking- shiat's been bad the whole time.

That's because Kotick is and always will be a predatory businessman.  If he can't find a way to monetize the sh*t out of a game, it doesn't get published.

Once he and Activision realized how much they could monetize WoW, they really started pushing it hard.

Yeah, Ion being one of them (he was originally in Fires of Heaven in EQ, one of the bleeding edge raiding guilds).  Once he got to Blizzard and the WoW team, he set out to make it into his vision of what the game should be.
 
2021-08-01 8:30:46 AM  
For me it was when they banned me from Diablo III for no reason.  I hadn't actually played the game for a year or had it installed on the new computer I had bought.  But that didn't stop them from sending out an email stating I was banned for "reasons" and that they had done some thorough investigation although the actual reason from them was never forthcoming.

Bottom line is that my account was hacked and it's something Blizzard never acknowledged. (I was one of countless others)

gimlet: I cannot believe how far the company has fallen. I was a massive fan of everything blizzard from Warcraft 2 - Liche King and then it was if the company just stopped developing good/original content.

Hopefully Bethesda does not meet the same fate.


Bethesda is a terrible company as well.  They release horribly broken, buggy games and just leave them to the fans to clean up.

I have no idea if they have a toxic workplace culture like A-B and Ubi, but fark them and the horse they rode in on too.

Why people keep paying for broken games with tons of microtransactions is beyond me.

Like most things, the consumer is and has been the problem the entire time. Reading this garbage is painful.

This happened shortly after WoWs release, when they decided to cater to most whiney cry baby bullshiatters.

This is your fault. Grow up.
