Because they allow a once Great Dev's Like Blizzard to pretty much become a pretty meh Dev. They haven't made anything really good in over a decade, it has only been So-So. Games that bank off the name more than they do the quality. Like Diablo 3 for example, Graphics were years old at release. Gameplay is weak compared to the likes of Torchlight 2. Honestly the only thing the game has going for it is the multiplayer, with the seasons. Would take a HD remake of Diabo 2 any day of the week over Diablo 3. If it wasn't for the Diabo name, they would never have sold as many copies. WoW was only good for the first two expansions, after that it blew. And Starcraft while still good, it is just another RTS in a long list a great RTS games. CoH, Civ, and XCOM can give starcraft a run for its money any day of the week.


Ubisoft getting bought out by someone that is nearly just as bad as Ubisoft, I feel for them. But sadly it will most likely be the same. Look at how the Whole Activation thing went, sure they split up. But Activision Blizzard is still worse than EA. Though both are still better than Ubisoft, the people that pretty much killed themselves with bad games. And Vivendi was the parent company driving Activision Blizzard into the ground the entire way.


They are not the worst, but not the best either. I have no love for Vivendi.

If you check my previous post all of those horrible half assed Meh Meh games you're talking about were made after Blizzard became independent from Vivendi, in fact all of the goodies were made under Vivendi.

Overwatch and Heros of the Storm are good games.

Good if Ubisoft gets taken over. Although hopefully they steer in a different direction on a few things if this does happen. They have cool IP's just terrible delivery of their PC games.

I don't care for the possible downsides of this, take them over damnit. I hate being limited to only 1/3rd of the market. (I refuse to support EA and I won't lower myself to Ubisoft.)

Heros of the Storm a Good Game? Arguable, but the fact is that it isn't successful, we don't know if Overwatch is a good game, we'll see when it launches, if it is then it'll be the first good game Blizzard launches ever since Vivendi.

Any company asking for handouts is a failing company in my opinion. I guess we just have differing views.

Debateable. I want to like the game but there's just a million things that come to mind that Blizz is botching.

The overall artistic direction isn't bad, balance isn't horrible, but in different areas it can be lacking (overall impact of skills/attacks over time vs enemy players is a bit low on average; healing is done nicely though) or outright abusive. (like the way of implimentation of daily quests and their relevance to f2p currency.)
