"psycho-social risks" wait what is going on in blizzard offices?
Obviously, Blizzard felt they could trim the fat and be just fine, so it seems to me that anyone refusing to work is only demonstrating that they're also the fat and can be trimmed. It's not like they're protesting cruel workplace conditions or something. This is pretty ridiculous, but also fairly standard for France.
you guys in the comments know you dont need to simp for blizzard activison execs right lol? like those people wouldnt give you water if you were dying of thirst; let people try to protect their jobs when in its a pandemic for Christ sake its a video game
I just love how unions think it's the greatest idea to start a protest on the day when the new expansion launches.I can imagine how corporate decision-makers in Blizzard/Activision will be pleased with no support for European players on this, rather important, day (or a week, depending on how long will the strike last). I am certain that major unrest and unhappiness among the European player base and loss of revenue connected to that will convince Blizzard/Activision to rethink their approach.And now honestly, without any sass or irony: blackmail doesn't work very often and tends to backfire. And what the unions are doing is they are trying to hold Shadowlands release hostage. And the truth is that Blizzard service in Europe has been lacklustre for years now, so I am not sad to see them go. Too many times we had problems and issues (gameplay, server-side, lags, functions not working, delays) that U.S. players never heard of. For me them being fired is not a surprise.
Have to rember one thing also about Blizzard and France, now Blizzard is an US company, combine this whit France and how unstable they are whit Terrorist attacks now, meening the treath against specialy american companies is becomnning way higher also.offcourse I am not say this is the only reason for closing in france, but I am pretty sure that scenario has been taken in to concideration also, anyone stationed there would do that.
If I recall, weren't these jobs being relocated in UK's offices ?Since France is advocatin for 100% free speech (after the late events) wouldn't that be a good place to build new social media tech companies ? Just wonders.
