WoW! Talk! #191: Strange Messages and Holding Them Accountable
Rei gets weird messages and Nick tries to figure out how to hold Blizzard Management accountable....
On July 21st the State of California Department of Fair Employment and Housing announced it was pursuing litigation against Activision-Blizzard due to multiple claims of harassment and discrimination against their female employees. This week, Jarret, founder of Mash Those Buttons and formerly of Watchpoint Radio and The Mash Those Buttons Show joins us to discuss the allegations against Blizzard and the community reaction. We also discuss Order of Corrupted Souls recent experiences pugging and raiding. Eric and Rei raided with another group and downed Sylvanas and Harv has been showing up to play, although struggling because he’s under-geared. Thank you for listening to WoW! Talk! Please believe women and do what you can to end harassment and discrimination. Our support is with the victims and the hundreds of Blizzard employees disatisfied with their company’s response.
Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
Rei is the 1 of the 5 SEELE members and the Ops Director at MTB. She enjoys anime, baking, cooking, gaming ( fighting, puzzle, rhythm, RPGs ), and spending WAY too much time working on spreadsheets. Current Games: Tales of Crestoria, WoW
Auto mechanic, car enthusiast, gamer, runner and almost never serious, Eric has been ditching responsibilities and gaming since age 7. His favorite genres are FPS and racing, although most of his game time is currently spent on WoW
Chris has been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. When he's not playing his hunter in Azeroth, he's probably playing one of his many alt hunters. If not doing that, he's probably playing a different hunter.
