    Default Yep, Blizzard is suing

    Someone posted the World of Starcraft post on here yesterday. I can't find the topic but I do remember somoene saying that it would be idiotic if Blizz sued, 'they have a sense of humor" and all that stuff...

    Well...

    Blizz may have a sense of humor, but Activision does not. This is exactly what I was expecting from Bobby.

    They put the mod tools right in the game. I can already hear Bobby Kotick explaining his stance "We want players to use the mod tools to create their own worlds, their own games and have replay that can last forever. If you make something better than we did though, we will take everything you own and slap your mom with our enormous penii"

    It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.

    Unless the link leads to the wrong article...there's nothing about anyone sueing anyone in there...There isn't even a C&D Order. Hell, it even says specifically that the only thing that was done was a petition to Youtube to remove videos due to copyright violation...That isn't really unexpected considering the title of the 'mod' and the fact that it isn't officially sanctioned to use said name.

    Then again lets all just be '***** and flame Blizzard for being Blizzard ~_~

    I'm jumping on that band wagon! You'd think they'd be happy at the creative way these guys used the tool set and offer them a job or something.

    Monopoly. Mini-Golf doesn't have enough ways to screw over other players.

    Monopoly, the game of TRUE businessmen, because even if you "Bust" you can always just mortgage some backwater property to save youself, just like in RL.

    but back with this "mod": lol, its not blizzard thats angry, its activison, blizzard is cool, ACTIVISON is the enemy here.

    they bought out blizzard some time ago (don't remeber exactly) effecively merging the two companies, since then activison has been excerising its "oh so wonderful business sense" in an industry that doesn't accept 50% profit margins sorry bobby.

    on the other hand, RIFT's competion is laughable right?

    PS: did anyone not expect this NOT to happen?

    He hasn't got sued, read HIS OWN POSTS

    http://www.worldofstarcraft.proboard...play&thread=42

    They didn't come to me directly but Activision went to Youtube and put the kabosh on the video.

    I just spoke with a Blizzard official, and the issue is being worked on. Because of the sensitive nature of what's going on, I'm going to wait until the dust has settled to comment further.
