Hi everyone. This is a place for people to respectfully discuss the allegations against Activision recently. Please be aware that due to the sensitive topics of these alligations this forum may be unsuitable for younger children

I always reserve my judgement for these types of things until verifiable proof has been revealed in court. Hopefully, the truth comes out, whatever that may be.

I am "happy" this is going to court as it is there these kind of things should be resolved and not on social media or boycots or whatever that solve nothing and just add fuel to the fire

All of those things should be resolved in court. The whole "cancel" culture disgusts me. Just leave it to the court.

I'm really mad because Crash Bandicoot is one of my favourite game franchises ever and since "the company that shall not be named" owns it really annoys me because I just can't support them any more. Disgusted.

As ever, more things come to light that is damaging to Activision's reputation.
Be it things like the Blitzchung controversy, their poor handling of cherished game licenses they've acquired, abhorred business practices like sneaking in micro-transactions later after a game's launch, over-paying their top executives whilst letting staff go, and other reprehensible conduct.
Also frustrations like how they release incomplete physical versions of games, passing expenses onto the consumer by not putting all needed data on the game card.

These allegations of mistreatment of women in Activision Blizzard's work places following an investigation, are particularly alarming and show problems with the workplace culture itself throughout the company. It still has to go through legal proceedings to really determine what the truth may be, but the court of public opinion already has a low opinion of Activision as it is.

Still, people need to not jump to conclusions here, Activision and let due process take place.
That said, past conduct is all the reason for me to continue to boycott Activision and refuse to purchase any of their games, which is a shame because I would've otherwise picked up their more recent Spyro and Crash Bandicoot games.

I think someone should write a soap box so @Eel can close the comments.

@BloodNinja I'm with you on that. I need to see actual evidence before I form an opinion other than "I hope this isn't true".

Why do people start discussion threads without offering any thoughts on the discussion themselves?

Personally I'm just out for good games. If Activision make good games at decent prices and put them on Switch they can have my money. The keyboard warriors out there can thrash it out over whether they meet today's SJW definition of good guys or not, not my concern. I haven't even read the NL article on the issue. Just another drama wagon rolling on by.

@sixrings bold of you to assume I have the power to do that.

Erm I mean. Yes I can absolutely do that. So behave.

@RupeeClock How can we make any conclusions about their work place without evidence? All we have is an article stating legal action is being pursued. Pursuing legal action is not an indication in and of itself that there is a problem; it has to be proven that damages were incurred for us to conclude that yes, there is a problem.

@PoliticallyIncorrect Indeed! While their legal actions deserve attention, I’m extremely curious to see the outcome.

@BloodNinja
As I understand it, the state of California was conducting an investigation, and following that investigation is why they have pressed charges.

We here are just bystanders with hearsay though, I haven't make a conclusion about their workplace treatment of women and can't until I look into it properly, or await the court verdict.
Though it remains that Activision has done a lot wrong in the past, including mistreatment of their employees albeit not on grounds of sexual discrimination or harassment.

@Eel Do you have the power to open up the comment section of the article so we can argue there instead?

@Eel but can you close and open portals to other dimensions? And if you can do you have a dashing beard like Doctor Strange?

I too bow down to the court, the holy arbiter of truth. I am a very rational and smart person and I believe that the American legal system determines truth and justice unerringly.

I wasn´t there but the EA live stream yesterday had a good looking lady, don´t karras her. Ask her out for a drink. Watch the sunset. If this is realy the work invironmand at Activision-Blizzard It´s sad but you can learn from Electronic-Arts.

Bamm!

@RupeeClock Right, pressing charges does not mean a crime has been proven. I’m glad they are pressing charges and hope the truth of the matter is discovered.

@Purgatorium I agree with your sarcasm. But I don’t know of a better system. And I really dislike the court of public opinion. Then again Bill Cosby is walking free which makes me want to give up on humanity as a whole.
