Good for them and their "underpaid" staff...at this time, its better to be underpaid than unemployed with millions losing their jobs from places that will never open up again.Just my two cents.
Earnings call are scheduled months in advance, by the way, to all your hurr durr timing people
Firing those 800 people really payed off, huh?
Great, everyone can get a pay rise, :)Right? That's how it works, right?
Cool that's awesome now change the covenant system and fix classes in wow your loyal fan base deserves better along with your underpaid employees
'Best engagement in a decade' Surely has NOTHING to do with the current global pandemic that forced hundreds of millions of people indoors with nothing else to do right.Before Blizzard break an arm trying to pat themselves on the back, let's remember that they won't always have a virus to bail out their failing expansions.
Glad to see at least something coming out of Activision Blizzard is exceeding expectations.
How many millions are they going to stuff into Bobby Tick's greedy mouth this time? Maybe if they lay off a bunch more underpaid staff the third quarter will show even more profit. After all, they don't need QA staff anymore; the Beta players will report all the bugs, half of which Blizz will never get around to fixing before launch.
someone big in wow should really start a refund shadowlands and unsub trend until blizzard employees actually get a fair paycheck. if blizzard only cares about money lets send a message.

I don't understand why everyone is picking on the game industry regarding employee wages. Tell me exactly which industries pay their employees a fair living wage? Which industries pay more than is required to fill a position? "The gaming industry feeds on passion so they can pay peanuts". Ummmm passion doesn't pay rent or put food on the table for most of us. That's a choice we all have to make, individually. Most people take jobs that pay the bills and put their passion to work in hobbies. It's also not an industry issue, it's a capitalism issue. We're supposed to believe it's what makes North America great, lol. We are supposed to believe we are in control of our own financial future. Work hard, have a nice life. Unfortunately, it doesn't actually work that way. Underprivileged people generally get stuck there because capitalism is all about "me". So, I think it's unfair to rage on a single industry that's really good at working the capitalistic system we have in place.
