On surviving Summer and other nonlinear thoughts

RND/ [..] been meaning to blog for a while now but as usual never know what to say – or only that I can only ever say that I know next to nothing. Also, only part of me understands that nobody’s listening, and that I’m merely wide-banding in/to the electronic void  – ‘pissing into your own stale wind’ as I call it – but at this point I don’t care. In fact the (extremely relative) anonymity and deep abiding estrangement and alienation of teh_interwebs seems to positively encourage such idle, message-in-a-bottle modes of synthetic mis-communication, and –

I’m rambling already. Indeed that’s all I’ve done so far on this random, nowhere site. Ramble on about dehydrated nothing – and not in some cool, subtle, existential Beckett ‘I can’t go on I must go on’  style either. Merely spittin’ that loose, drunk 3am jive on a fire escape overlooking a distant megacity. Or in my case, the next block of crappy 70’s era flats that should have been pulled down at the paper planning stage. This is me in my Summer outfit of shorts, and tastefully garish Tom Selleckesque palm tree print shirt – what I term ‘CIA Casual’ (aka Josh Brolin in Sicario):

When others post sparkling images of themselves looking tanned and insanely happy on some brilliant beach in yet another exotic location and you’re merely trapped in the no-horse conservative middle of UK’s desperate backwater island, there can be no comparison. I.. I forget whatever I was about to say. Something about the ‘shit-stream of consciousness*’. Only shattered dimensional narrative fragments, micro-tonalities, processed textures and word ecology – abstractly meditative and ateological, built on chordal vibes, timbral sequences, circular motifs and various accidental punctuations.

That is to say, loneliness; an embarrassing disease of The Social that nobody wants to catch – and so they stay well away from you, a looser, say like Paul Giamatti’s greasy little character Benno Levin in Cosmopolis (David Cronenberg, 2012.) Except that Paul Giamatti’s a multi millionaire, and you are not. I too will therefore try much harder than the well studied apathy and cool bullshit detachment I’ve based my (non-millionaire) looser’s lifestyle on and from here on (any day now, I swear) will express little but astounding, affirmative positivity – an endlessly chipper new age vibe tempered with considered, nuanced pragmatism.

I survived the ‘open oven door’ heat of an Anthropogenic English Climate Change Summer, which this year was borderline unbearable. It was never this hot in daze of old. Idiot brain boiling in thick skull, I hastily constructed a stick based image while silently preying for it to rain, rain – symbol of an instrument to help escape my/this/the Situation:

Can’t stand the Summer, always have done – it reminds me of being young, sitting alone on dusty kerbs on my shitty housing estate in the deep South of Endland, wishing for something-anything to happen. Every dehydrated day was a burnt carbon copy of the last. Only the cool solace and shaded organic mystery of a small nearby copse made it all remotely bearable, even quietly pleasant. The trees provided great company, and to this day the sound of breeze-shaken leaves makes my heart brighten with faded memories of relief and existential respite from Terminal Boredom.

Here’s a transcript of a typical day of production at Linus Tech Tips – a Google transcript of a LOLtube video entitled “How Linus Tech Tips Videos Are Made | Start to Finish Process” by Gamers Nexus:

Our Linus tech tip studio tour allowed us to see where LMG makes its videos but we also spent time speaking with some of the 30 members of Linus’s team about how videos are made following our factory tour series where we show how products are made like tempered glass or liquid coolers this video will take the same format for a how Linus tech tips videos are made we spoke with Linus Etzel Reilly Branden Nick and other members of the team about the workflow and lifespan of a video and even had the opportunity to shadow some videos throughout the process before that this video is brought to you by us and the G on store the best way to support our in-depth content is to visit store gamers nexus net and pick up one of our items we just restocked the critically acclaimed mod mats and medium and large and are shipping now with the medium matte selling through fast with their versatile size and unique GPU gridlayout PCB parts anatomy and GPU die spacing diagrams t-shirts are also a great way to support us like the teal tear down logo design and comfortable cotton or tri-blend visit store doc gamers XS net and use code Linus Drop tips for 10% off for a limited time.

We already have a tour of LMG that’s in a separate video but we’ll reference it several times in this content let’s walk through the video creation process start to finish for how an ltte video is made first a video idea is presented at a weekly writers meeting Linus will typically bring his own video ideas forward for consideration with a group of writers pitching ideas they’ve come up over the past week the video concept has worked through as a team and then Linus will assign the video concept to writers writers are expected to work on multiple ideas at once switching between them as natural delays arise in the process like the time spent waiting for products to arrive we’re waiting for emails to be answered Linus assign is the topics based upon the availability and specialities of each person on the writing team there are six to seven writers on the team depending on how you count Linus because he’s still used in a pinch although lmg seems to be constantly hiring so this number may increase the banana when you watch this video after ideas are assigned the necessary steps like purchasing materials for the project take place often these cause short delays and those allow writers to work on their other ongoing projects.

Linus will also occasionally crawl through an ideas list and delete anything that’s been done sort things that are important and bump stuff down in favor of reviews because LTT publishes daily and tech linked and tech quickie published regularly it’s important for lioness to star in at least a few videos per day LG tries to take a standard weekend off but with the seven-day publication cadence the team has to fill more than one video per day on average this increases as travel and conventions like copy Tech’s coming up shuffle lionesses availability and the availability of key team members like editors or film crew LMG tries to film enough videos to keep a video buffer length of ideally 10 videos meaning that lmg wants to have 10 videos queued for LTT at any given time this helps reduce the day-to-day pressure if setbacks are encountered but it’s sometimes difficult to achieve during our visit with the roasts and the weekend throwing off some of the timing the video buffer dwindled down to just one video linus said to us that he had the personally script at least two videos that day to try and catch up while the rest of his team took either a standard weekend off or was busy with the roasts.

The LG team says that a good day is when Linus can do two scripts reviews and two video shoots in full but with executive level tasks sometimes bogging down availability the team often ends up shooting three to four videos on Thursday and Friday instead this causes gaps earlier in the week because team members have multiple jobs to do like Linus handling CEO level work Nick light the CEO of LMG told us the following ideally work is done in blocks two to five script reviews in an afternoon with two to three videos shot the following day based on those reviews it’s very common for Linus to be shooting primary footage on one set while a camera person sets up the next video on another set for LTT specifically the goal is around six per week not counting any long-term projects for stuff like the $1,500 PC showdown that we did late last year planning and concept in meetings not necessarily a script review but along the same lines would be going on a couple weeks before you shoot Plus tech quickie which is around three per week after all this after scenes on the initial process and meeting with writers we had to hand around Alan G to wait for the next steps in the process as the writers were busy working on their content.

For I shoot we checked in with Riley who is responsible for running Alan G’s tech link to news channel to follow that video creation process Riley comes in early on the day of publishing a new tech length video and starts checking LTT forums for news topics and other common websites Riley then gathers 20 to 30 stories before organizing them into three headliners like major stories and five of his quick bits the new script is written by one p.m. at which point Riley asks Brandon or David some of the camera operators to set up for filming filming is done between 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. at which point Riley’s film er passes off the files to LMGs beloved Dennis who then completes editing by 5:00 p.m. the video is published as soon as it’s uploaded and processed so the entire process for tech linked happens in one day by the time Riley had started his filming Linus’s team was ready for us to shadow them once again the next step in the L&G; video creation process is general management and pipeline scheduling production manager Ed’s ol Iago handles the schedule at Alan G and runs an important role of communicating with each team member on how far along their videos are in the process Ed’s L helps keep or set deadlines but will sometimes shuffle topics around if a writer encounters roadblocks that delay filming or scripts completion.

This happened while we were there with one of Jake’s videos encountering unexpected delays due to technical challenges with his topic and so Riley’s air pods to review was pushed forward and scheduling we shadowed the entire script review for the air pods Tube video for this process – sits with the writer to familiarize himself with the product and the script – looks the product over leverages past experience to ask the writer questions about design choices and forms initial impressions – then reads the script line by line with the writer changing phrasing to ensure it matches his own voice and tone and thins he’d say but also checking for quality or shortcomings if Linus feels that there’s some necessary testing missing he’ll send the writer back to complete additional testing to ensure a complete third product review if that takes all necessary angles into account – debates with writers there were strong opinions either challenging theirs or asking them to challenge his which we’re told – helps ensure that the content has a more complete view by combining multiple voices into one review if the team doesn’t agree on a particular part of the product they’ll add those view points to the script and present them as each person’s opinion offering more options to viewers.

We were told that the script reviews can take 30 to 60 minutes with both that we were present for taking about an hour – occasionally writes scripts to fill gaps when his team is maxed out but this process is difficult unless after hours as based on our own experience in the studio interruptions are constant and necessary to keep other team members moving titling is suggested by writers but Nick and Linus will decide on the final title as both know the balance between relationships viewcount and being overly inflammatory or sensational as the script is crawled through the team capitalizes some phrasing to help guide emphasis during teleprompter reads and otherwise spaces out the content so that it can be read quickly and efficiently when on camera at this point the video team is notified that it’s time to shoot LG has multiple sets to match different video tones but they’re also useful if occupied by other projects the team will pick between the bedroom the living set the kitchen set the green-screen set or the tech linked set or something unique and then start setting up lighting this part gets interesting each set is prepared with up lighting pre-configured and rigged to be enabled with power switches and tuned with phone applications.

Most of the basic lights like the rim or hair lights the key lights the fill lights are already mostly in place for the shoot but the video team might relocate some lights for special circumstances David one of the video team members told us that lighting setup can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour depending on how complex the shoots are for controlling reverb and echo the studio is lined with a black porous spray-on foam that reduces sound waves bouncing back to the microphone that’s often have real walls like with drywall their legitimate walls but they don’t reach all the way to the ceiling these were constructed in a way that makes the rooms more versatile for use by offering non squared corners opening up filming opportunities considerably you can find more discussion on this topic in our studio tour of LNG which is also on the channel the video team also next decides on if an easy rig a tripod or another solution makes the most sense for the shot with tripods often being used for sitting a role like in the air pods to review David used the easy rig during our time filming the laptop overclocking experiment president available on floatplane and had a red camera monitor and audio equipment all hooked up for fluid shots to give an idea for cost this configuration which you can see in our shots of David doing his job would run about seventy-five thousand dollars at the time of purchase or fifty-five thousand of using the epic W instead of the red weapon.

We asked how quickly fatigue sets in with a setup like this and were met with a quick reply that the shifting weight makes it physically challenging for lawn shoots video team members are sometimes rotated for different shoots to give recovery periods from the amount of physical labor involved as it’s a difficult job and by nature of being behind the camera is one that’s almost never shown to viewers so show some love to the camera operators next time you watch one of their videos if the shoot is more off-the-cuff like our laptop OC video the camera operator isn’t afraid to interject and say to get closer shots of parts being worked on this also makes it easier for the editors because they can find the necessary b-roll shots in between the clips they need of the aerial shots we were also occasionally asked to ensure a better shot angle rather than shooting one continuous clip for all this lioness or the camera operator will judge when to stop recording so that meticulous or uninteresting steps can be completed without blowing through storage space these shoots can consume around 65 megabytes per second at twenty to one a 30fps 8k or one sixty two megabytes per second at eight to one in more important projects so to film our entire overclocking video which was over a couple of days could easily reach upwards and Beyond a terabyte if the camera operator allowed filming to run continuously without ever cutting it off.

It’s important for operators to know when to cut unplanned shoots for this exact reason storage cost is a hidden costs to the operation that viewers often don’t see a sit-down review works differently for these after script review – goes off to film and the writer accompanies Linus and the shooter to oversee the review any inaccuracy is off script opinions that Linus might interject or points of important emphasis can be caught here the writer may realize that something was left out when hearing it read through but is also present in case Linus needs to double check that the tone is a probe for the discussion or that the information is accurate this is just part of the extensive QC process that’s involved for the LNG videos all this has handled downstairs in the warehouse area of the office LMG now occupies five units with one dedicated for use as a workshop with a CNC and plans to get a press and laser cutter operational these are often used by Alex for special projects like custom water box for example and are separated from the studio by a concrete wall the studio consists of a few units side by side with the dividing walls removed another unit is where additional storage and the lounge are located currently an ongoing project for LNG and you can see the rest in our studio tour video after filming the a role for the review or sometimes before the writer will annotate each document for the editors.

This will include notes on where to find old clips that may be relevant which b-roll shots to use for explanations of the product or which charts should be included for the review and where editors and shooters are different people although it is sometimes easier to pull someone versatile for special projects certain videos like those without a script might be best edited and shot by the same person so the editor is aware of the interesting and uninteresting parts but otherwise it’s typically two different people doing that part of the pipeline once films everything is ingested into the server and edited down heads all assigns an editor to the topic who can then use the shots of the clapboard that’s used to synchronize audio and video clips easily along with checking notes to ensure that each shot is in the right folder the first frame of every video clip shows the clapboard itself with the written notes on it as that frame is the thumbnail in the file browser so this allows editors to rapidly see which video each clip is assigned to this also helps with footage loss mitigation as any clips with anomalies or technological errors can be traced back to the SD cards and the audio equipment used for the shoot anything defective is investigated and resolved separately potentially discarded to ensure no further opportunity costs arise because some shoots like those abroad don’t get second chances there’s only one to get it right as for storage management.

Ed’s ejogo noted the following quote projects folders are kept intact we delete older deliverables but keep the final master copies and move them to our vault server we’re actually running low on space for the vault so we’ve started backing it up onto I think Google from there we’re actually deleting the super old content from the vault from our main server we send projects to the vault after they’ve been released to YouTube linus also expanded on this telling us the following to the greatest extent possible we have kept every minute of footage ever recorded in this building or other buildings we’ve worked out of I’m a total data hoarder partly because you never know when you might need it and also because it makes for fun opportunities to keep exploring higher tiers of storage of technology once videos make it through the editor the final part of QC can begin QC originally starts with the writers meeting where ideas are tested for quality and then continues into script review then into a role where the writer observes for QC and finalizes in editing Taran is typically responsible for a final editing QC pass to ensure the video matches LG’s editing best practices like having title cards for old clips for instance the writer for the video also QC is the final output and train accuracy of the script and that the overlaid footage matches the topic.

After this it goes through one final QC pass and that’s typically Nick light or Linus Nick will stand in when Linus is unable to watch videos which is becoming more frequent but these two are the ones who have the final say on if the video represents alum z-score values appropriately or if anything needs to change QC is generally done in the Adobe from your timeline with markers dropped along the way for corrections or changes that the editor can then make later finally the render is queued for upload the float plate with sponsor pickups shot and inserted depending on the sales team the video is then uploaded to YouTube and scheduled the sales team is another large Beast of the operation but one that we won’t dive into for this video the team manages advertising or other partnerships writers have no visibility into the advertising or the cost of it and often won’t know the ad for the video until it’s seen on YouTube or during the final QC passes Linus has some insight to cost clearly he does run the company but doesn’t get involved in ad sales this approach to editorial separation is discussed in our LMG studio tour.

If you’re interested for further thoughts as Nick white said regarding the huge team that LMG has accumulated quote every editor every writer every shooter every administrative person every warehouse person even every sales person is absolutely integral to our process if they weren’t they wouldn’t be here so that’s it for our final part of the tour of LMG you can find our original video the actual walkthrough of the studio on the channel if you haven’t seen it already or you can subscribe for more make sure you store documents access net to support this type of content by buying our shirts our mod mats or our other unique and custom products or you go to patreon.com/scishow and access for behind-the-scenes videos thanks for watching we’ll see you all next time [Music].

Sounds involved. By contrast, here’s a typical day of non-production here down at the Lab for ‘Robert What’:

  1. Get up around 6am after a fitful night’s sleep
  2. Coffee
  3. Put out the washing if it’s not raining
  4. Stare at the internet for most of the day feeling listless
  5. Throw together some badly photo-shopped (gimped) something
  6. “Go to bed, feeling the same way” – Bruce Springsteen

Other than that, ain’t at whole lot goin’ on but the rent. How’s your summer been?

On Absurd Videogame Industry News: JayzTwoCents Transcript

RND/ to consider a slightly rough Google transcript of a video by cool vlogger JayZTwoCents (Jason Langerin):

In which, putting it all down on the page makes it read like the mild head-injury ramblings of someone foolishly immersed / half drowned in meaningless internal videogames industry tech mews minutiae.

To ask, who talks like this? Who (apparently) has such ‘deep insights’ into the fiscal workings of super massive and inherently evil near future mega-corporations – and how does that exactly tie in to giving out consumer friendly clickbait ‘advice’ about when exactly – oh the existential pain of such a question! – to throw in one’s ideological wallet and commit fully to The (Sales) Program and purchase some inherently obsolete motherboard or graphics card.. capable of running the astoundingly beige homogeneity of modern videogames at 60pfs.

At what point does always merely “making financial sense” simply mean acting like a hollow, soulless echo chamber for His Master’s [AAA Game Industry] Voice? “Woof woof, Nivida-woof!”

JayzTwoCents: Why did AMD skip Ray Tracing on Navi cards? Man things were heating up here in Southern California and I’m not talking about the heatwave I’m talking about all the discussions regarding what’s coming coming out of III whether it be gaming consoles or of course PC hardware because AMD has obviously stolen the show with the amount of news and and press releases and all that sort of stuff now

Yes I’m aware that this is right on the heels of the last video we did about Radeon but I think there’s a lot more to talk about we have more insight we’ve done more research and we got to have a finally have a meeting with AMD engineers and talk to them specifically about some of our questions and concerns which I’ve seen parroted in the in the comments section of a lot of the video so we asked him

Does a lot of those hard facts the hard facts the hard questions and we got some information on and then also kind of a new perspective of how the sort of look at the 5700 XT and the 5700 so let’s go ahead and talk about that with their 9 blade designed the skier on D RGB fans from metallic gear offer a balance of performance and aesthetics available in both 120 and 140 millimeter sizes the ski run fans are sure to fit any size builds

Hub mounted LEDs provide a wide spread of lighting while the daisy chain above wiring harness and cherry tidy wiring job every time to learn more about the skier on RGB and D RGB fans from metallic gear click the link in the description below

Alright so let’s rewind to August of 2018 specifically Cologne Germany when invideo launched their r-tx lineup of graphics cards and byte lineup I mean 2080 and 20 atti with a 2070 kind of thrown in the mix there a little bit and there here was the response and and this is a totally justified response but this was the general response from the public they cost how much you’re getting 20 to 30% more performance over pascal 1080 TI

But you’re getting it’s costing you 40% more whatever it was 50% more something crazy like that that the general consensus was gamers want performance they want high FPS low latency low response times you know all that sort of stuff so turning on a fidelity feature like rate racing at the cost of 50% or more FPS at the time anyway there’s been some optimizations but still it’s it’s a performance tax no matter what the audience said we don’t care about DX r we care about performance well let’s fast forward nine months later now to June of 2019 at E3

AMD launches its new high-end gaming cards not to be confused with the enthusiast level which is where the Vegas stuff and like RT X kind of resides but a high-end 5700 XT in a slightly lesser high in 5700 featuring seven nanometer Navi technology on the new rDNA architecture completely different from GC n which stands for graphics core next if you didn’t know the most common thing we saw even though it was on average a hundred dollars less than its direct competitor from Nvidia and giving you anywhere from 2 to 21% more performance in gaming was where’s the RT X or where’s the DX r where’s the ray tracing Navi was our Savior why don’t we have ray tracing Navi you were supposed to save us so I find it kind of interesting that the audience back not even a year ago was

And even just last week when we do our video about the quake 2 RT X update was no-one cares about this crap but then there’s so many people out there that are like what the hell why doesn’t have DX are so we’re in this weird kind of a limbo space where you have to make this decision do you want max performance or do you want max fidelity and by fidelity I mean all the eye candy right the global illumination soft shadows the obviously DXR ray tracing for light paths all that sort of stuff

You have to kind of take your pick because right now we are on the cusp of the next gaming revolution just like we were nearly 20 years ago when rasterization came out we’re we were on the next generation of the wait games are going to be performed so I asked this question specifically when we had our meeting today with AMD

I said can you speak to why dxr is not something that was mentioned outside of the console space because that’s the other thing that confused a lot of people was like well wait a minute if project of whatever it’s called for the new Xbox Scarlet if it’s going to have 8k capable gaming and it’s gonna have ray tracing and it’s an AMD GPU or APU technically why the heck is the PC space not even mentioning it or talking about it when that’s AMD’s bread-and-butter so I asked him that very same question and the general consensus here and of course this was a lot of like not off the record but this is off the slides at this point because there was this was not a specific forethought conversation that was supposed to be had was that ray tracing does indeed need some maturity and not with the architecture which obviously needs to happen

I mean NVIDIA is doing it through tensor cores for DL SS and that’s a super sampling right deep learning super sampling and then it needs to be also optimized in the arc RT core space which is what’s happening with all the ray tracing calculations all that math is being performed on the RT cores and then the cuda cores and a lot of the other push processing and you know that sort of stuff so we’ve seen a good first gen implementation of it in terms of the fact that you can even do it in real time was already kind of the the wow factor and then doing it at 60fps is already great obviously had a huge cost of $1,200 so $1,200 for 60fps regardless of how good the scene looks seemed like a huge step backwards to gamers and then the outcry was obvious

So AMD made the conscious choice of targeting where most gamers reside and that is going to be in the well the 5700 XT and 5700 are indeed high-end cards but it’s going to be in that range and down to be fair I think most gamers are shopping around two hundred and fifty dollars and if you want to spend that kind of money on a graphics card you’re still going to be stuck with like the RTX 580 our X 480 or will know that the 48 585 70 or even a 590 but you’re not going to obviously be getting any of the new RTR our DNA tech architecture the best way to kind of look at this is the way Rysen first-gen like the 1000 series wasn’t so much a game-changer as much as it was a disrupter it’s referred to as a disrupter because it was designed to just kind of make people kind of go whoa wait a minute what just happened okay I’m not sure about this

Something happened I want to see how this plays out and then 2000 series rise in which is still first gen rise in came out and the market share started to shift Intel’s market share gains stalled and then AMD gain back cpu market share although Intel was still the dominant player aim to gain back market share and then Xen to now giving us the amount of increase we saw an IPC and now beating apparently core four core Intel CPUs at a much lesser price has changed the CPU industry this is what AMD is banking on our DNA being for graphics this is first gen rising for graphics cards you’re not gonna see the disruption necessarily happening right now but what you’re gonna probably see is a lot of people adopt that whole wait-and-see attitude and as long as AMD can live up to the promises of we are going to be making this as good as possible over the next several generations

And by generations I don’t mean we’re talking five-year plan I mean we’re talking three-year plan probably at this point then what you’ll start to see is a much broader spectrum of competition taking place across the board but like anything else you can’t get there without launching the initial disrupter in the first place the other thing that they reason why they didn’t launch this high-end God’s saving Saito saved the gamers Navi architecture which everyone thought was gonna be coming out because we don’t remember a year ago we heard that there’s gonna be a RTX killing card for 250 dollars from AMD and that’s called na’vi

Well the internet sort of made that up on their own AMD you cannot find a single piece of information where AMD even speculated or hinted at any sort of performance for that before that dollar range whatsoever but what AMD has decided is that the raw performance is more important than the eye candy but at the same time what they was more important was that you have backwards-compatibility in terms of the toolkits and because GCN is so matured in terms of being in the console space in the PC space in the cloud space as well as mobile it was it’s easier to implement and get the technology out into the wild by making sure that it’s backwards compatible with all of that while featuring forward compatible technologies as developers come online for it

So they adopted what a lot of people said Nvidia should have done which is the adopt now and then we promise in six months to a year these features will become available because of the fact that you know it’s gonna take time for RT X and DX are to be implemented by the developers they decided to build a graphics card on a new architecture because as much as people want to say our DNA is just a rebrAMDd GCN it’s not it is ground-up different the difference is that it’s ground-up different with a hundred percent backwards support our backwards compatibility support so that allows you to have a much broader spectrum of adoption of this particular card in terms of games being designed for it while also utilizing forward-facing technologies that are only going to be available on the Navi based architecture

That once the adoption rate improves and more Navi cards are out in the wild then you’re gonna see features come online later on in games whether they’re new games or updates to existing games that means your graphics card that you buy today will get even more value in the future features that people care about like Radeon a min sharpening which is gonna be sort of like a DL SS but it’s open source and anyone can use it including Nvidia if they want to it’s kind of like the opposite of how hair works and and the Nvidia game works was back in the past although that was a very close source and developers had to either buy packages or buy particular SDKs and stuff to use those features is a hundred percent open you’re also gonna have the fidelity FX which is going to be different features that people can developers can put into their games that are going to be optimized on

Obviously now the architecture so forward compatible stuff or forward technically future proofing that as those features come online the architecture that was designed with those features in mind are gonna be remained much more relevant into the future rather than suddenly going well I’ve gotta buy a new graphics card now to use all these features you buy a new graphics card now that gets you an immediate performance bump and the way games would played today on the AP is and the SDKs that are available today specifically being you know obviously DirectX and Vulcan and then we’re gonna see an improvement in the future so that is sort of the strategy behind why AMD launched at the 5700 XT and 5700 now we tried really hard trust me we tried to find out if there’s gonna be an RX 5800 XT or a 5600 because I feel like – scuse on the rDNA family that’s a good place to start

I’d be shocked if we didn’t see the stack sort of trickled down a little bit but I don’t think you got if you guys are waiting for a twenty atti competitor from Navi I don’t think you’re gonna see it in this family I would love trust me to see a twenty atti rival right now from AMD but it’s clear that the Radeon 7 is the enthusiast card that you get from AMD right now for more entry-level stuff I almost feel like we’re probably not gonna see anything until a little bit later on maybe when the new um the updated Xen apos come out featuring Navi I also asked that question I’m like can we we see the 3200 and 3400 G featuring ray Vega 8 will we potentially see those utilising the Navi in the future and of course it was will

We’re talking about this today we can’t talk about anything in the future and of course I knew that was gonna be the answer but I’ve got a Trier I’ve got to ask the questions that you guys were all wondering the whole point of this video in fact if anyone even said just skip this video and go to this time point stamp this one if you are waiting for an Nvidia killing AMD rate racing card this is not it it’s not coming and you should probably just go ahead and determine which purchase makes sense for you right now whether you want $100 more expensive in video card that can do rate racing or $100 lesser expensive graphics card from AMD that gives you more raw performance than $100 cart a card that cost more or you get your DXR and then the frame rates kind of do that because you know the XR is a huge impact of performance

But you have that choice and the choice is yours in this consumer that’s where you vote not the comments section not the like dislike ratio you spend your money on what you believe in that’s how you vote all right guys thanks for watching I just wanted to sort of add to our last video because now that we’ve got a little bit more insight and got to get face-to-face and asked questions that were way off the slide I felt like an extension to our previous video was necessary all right guys thanks for watching and as always we’ll see you in the next one and the next one’s gonna include some hands-on stuff with Rison which I cannot wait for because teaser we might be going back to Rison for long-term testing with our editing rigs because of new graphics APR graphics SDKs that are integrate they’re gonna integrate with Adobe and stuff if and when Adobe ever gets off their ass to implement alright guys it’s an exciting time to be alive okay

We need to have a talk because I’m getting so many messages and stuff right now that it’s kind of driving me crazy because we are on the cusp of a lot of new hardware coming out and I’ve got people asking me what they should buy today we said it a million times when you guys are buying and building new equipment you need to have your ear to the ground so you know what’s coming because it’s going to affect what’s already out so today I’m gonna give you some buying advice that way you hopefully haven’t wasted or don’t waste any money here in the near future the Sennheiser HD 58 x jubilee headphones offer everything audio enthusiasts desire continuing from a long line of innovation weighing in at just 260 grams gold-plated connector 1 point 8 meter detachable cord and full rich sound make the Sennheiser HD 58 X headphones from drop the obvious choice for those who are serious about sound

Sign up for drop is always free so take advantage of this deal by heading to drop using the link in the description below so this is another one of those patented talking head videos so feel free to go ahead minimize this and put on your favorite music if you like because I just want to give you guys some information as quickly as possible since we are literally on the edge of just a crazy summer when it comes to hardware you’ve seen us already talk about it some of our other videos regarding Zen 2 and the rise in 3000 series we’ve talked about how Intel doesn’t really have a mainstream kind of a launch or match happening right now

We also talked about some of the new stuff coming out from AMD regarding graphics cards and there’s going to be a rumored to be some changes here coming from Nvidia so there’s a lot to talk about so it’s kind of concerning and I feel bad if you’re one of those people that are watching this and has sent me this message you know who you are I’ve gotten tons of them people that are currently working on various builds and I’ve said it before that it makes sense to buy parts over time if you can’t afford the best now at least the best you can afford for your budget now then maybe it’s worth waiting a little bit longer adding a little bit more into your budget that way you can get a better more future proof or future friendly PC then by saving money today because you didn’t want to save a little bit longer the problem with that piece of advice that admittedly it’s not all advice is perfect is the fact that you don’t necessarily know when new hardware is coming

Now we did kind of know that Zen 2 was coming from well Computex last year was rumors CES this year with some official announcements and that obviously we had Computex and then III wear all of the all of the cards were basically shown and we knew that July 7th was the date that a general availability for both graphics from AMD Radeon as well as AMD Xen 2 base cpus are going to be available like I said the 7th of July now what I’m kind of confused as I’ve gotten some messages from folks that are like hey I just went out today and bought myself a 2600 or a 2200 G or whatever what motherboard should I get and I’m thinking to myself oh man oh man maybe utilize that return that return policy if you’ve got one because even if you’re thinking I’m not planning on going Zen

I’m not planning on going well like I can’t even give an Intel counterpart because there’s really not one to really kind of compare with this launch its existing skews but it still sort of applies here because if AMD comes out and is truly taking back market share versus Intel – things have to happen from Intel a an answer in terms of products cues or a reduction in price now we didn’t necessarily see that happen with the first generations in but with the I pcs rumored again there’s no first-hand experience here yet rumored to be improved over last generation and exceeding Intel currently then it would make sense that they would have to potentially lower the price

Now Intel’s more expensive as it is so even if they lowered the price to match as n2 and the performance is the same well then I guess you have choice with the AMD new platform having newer features though like PCIe gen 4 and eight gigabit USB throughput rather than four gigabit and all that sort of stuff so there’s lots of lots of things to talk about there one of the things that tends to happens retailers would be Newegg Micro Center I guess memory Express in Canada and all that sort of stuff is when older generation stuff is being phased out I can tell you right now AMD is not making new CPUs for older generations and they’re not motherboard manufacturers aren’t making new motherboards for the x4 70 and older

They are all they’ve got all of our manufacturing process pumping out the newest stuff so what’s gonna happen is as older hardware’s to be phased out you’re gonna start seeing things like bundle deals you’re gonna see Rebate unity / prices so it makes no sense when right on the edge of a new hardware product being launched to go out and spend the full retail cost of some hands available now when it’s more than likely than the drop in cost now sometimes that cost savings enough to even be able to bump you up one whole processor tear or maybe even one whole graphics tear now when it comes to the graphic side of things we still don’t know exactly all the details and stuff yet

Regarding the Nvidia stuff we don’t know how exactly 5700 XT and 5700 are going to truly stack up but I can tell you right now what has always tended to happen and then it happened in Pascal was when AMD launched a new graphics card new SKUs or rearranging of price or sometimes just a complete stack change has happened from Nvidia for instance the Vega 56 and Vega 64 launched Nvidia then launched the 1070 TI which slid right in between obviously a 1070 and 1880 to sort of give you more competition or a better performance per dollar or brand value or however you want to look at it at that particular price point giving you now choice options and more than just one competitor

So the whole point of this video right now is to kind of basically tell you pump the brakes stop don’t buy any hardware yet right now seriously even if you’re not planning on buying the newest stuff changes in product stacks and prices at the retail level happens all the time in fact oftentimes a manufacturer will even incentivize through manufacturer rebates bundle deals game codes all kinds of stuff that they want to move the old product off the shelf because they want people adopting the new stuff so they want the old stuff out as quick as possible they’re gonna blow it out and the new stuff is gonna come in now we’re gonna go all the way back to first generations in ibly 2016 when the 1800 X and the 2700 or 1700 X and 1700 all that launched the 1800 X cost $500 it was an 8 core 16 thread processor that was basically double the cores that you could get from the Intel offering offering potentially disruption in the product stack of the X 99 platform

Or the 59 60 X which was a 16 core processor for a much better value of 500 bucks half the cost of a 59 60 X but with more than half the performance it didn’t match the performance but it gave you more than half the performance for half the cost which is a better performance per dollar the same thing happened with the 2700 X member there was no 2800 X just a 2700 X and down where we saw a particular launch price and then it quickly sort of came down from there so I would also be potentially leery of running out and buying new hardware on day one especially for AMD because it’s likely we could see a price drop over the next few months especially if we get as we get closer to back to school back to cool back to school sales are a legitimate thing that happened in pretty much all retailers as well as Christmas deals and Christmas bundles

And I wouldn’t be surprised if the $499 3900 X that is a 12 core 24 thread part doesn’t drop down to the potential of $400 or maybe even like a 379 range where the 3950 X part at $749 slides in at the $500 we’ve seen it every single launch from AMD a launch price followed by a price slide which makes me feel bad for the early adopters on the AMD stuff because although it’s great you potentially then see this this while your performance per per dollar is terrible versus someone who bought it at a better price with a more refined and a more matured manufacturing process of this of the node or the dye and they’re getting potentially better performance for lesser money so this is why you need to pay attention you need to have your ear to the ground and if you just ran out and bought a new processor or a new motherboard because you’re building something right now

I would potentially return it get your money back and hang on to it because at the very least you’re gonna see the same price moving forward but more than likely a price drop so that’s that would definitely be my suggestion there so anyway guys yeah just a little bit PSA here I got enough messages to warrant this video kind of telling me or telling you guys to just hold off just wait consumers have all the power in this market it’s your dollars the manufacturers are spending your money to make their parts so if you’re not spending it with them then of course you know it drives competition in terms of not just between brands but wanting your money and they’re saying how do we from you and so they give you better incentives and stuff so hang on to it anyway guys just a quick PSA thanks for watching and as always we will see you in the next one [Music]

[..] blizzcon 2018 what an emotional rollercoaster that was now since i asked the question a lot of people have been asking me to kind of put together my thoughts on blizzcon 2018 and thats kind of exactly what i aim to do in this video so without further ado lets get into it hi lord fluffy face of diablo 3 is ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys so first and foremost i kind of want to get some context to the question itself so for you guys that dont know me im lord fluffy im a diablo 3 streamer ive been streaming diablo almost exclusively since season 3 season 4 ive been playing diablo 3 since vanilla without really ever taking a break i have countless hours sunk into diablo i dont even want to look at the number and ever since the release of the necromancer pack i have more or less been one of the top diablo streamers for quite some time now i actually had pretty low expectations going into blizzcon for the diablo franchise pretty much since season 12 we havent been seeing really any diablo content the most notable of those changes however has been the addition of themed seasons which for you guys dont know they basically just add a seasonal theme its been double goblins double bounty mattes nothing super innovative or game-changing pretty low-level changes that pretty much already existed in the game it didnt require any changes and i did more or less hype us up you know kind of right before the round three of blizzcon tickets went on sale brainy said this wed also like to let you know that the forge is here at wizard a burning hot and we have multiple diablo projects in the works some of them are going to take longer than others but we may have some things to show you later this year so of course everyone everyone thought that that was going to be a table 4 announcement theres no one i met at blizzcon back when that announcement was made that expected anything less than diablo 4 but of course as a lot of you guys know a couple weeks ago a blizzcon did kind of lower expectations and came out and said we know many of you are hoping for and good things come to those who wait but evil things take often longer so theyre basically in a nutshell telling us like theres no chance youre getting the elbow 4 so if you guys you know watch the podcast at all going into it i didnt really have the highest of expectations for the diablo franchise obviously a lot of people were hoping for diablo 2 remastered and i thought that that was in the realm of possibility but of course the one thing that didnt change after they lowered our expectations was the fact that diablo which we didnt know is the apple immortal yet diablo was following the opening ceremony and historically that has always meant that that game is getting the biggest announcement of the year period historically thats been 100 percent accurate every time so of course everyone still had really really high hopes theyre hoping for you know dt remastered hoping for diablo 3 content maybe an expansion or a character pack and honestly the community would joke about you know diablo pr or diablo mobile but im not sure that anyone actually expected that to be the case so you know fast forward its blizzcon day one we finally get inside drop a deuce key another diablo streamer actually saved the seats towards the front so we had you know really good spot but you know going into the day i was a little bit sour already you know people were tweeting at me like hey fluff what time are you gonna stream at blizzcon and im just kind of like what are you talking about and i guess that they had invited todds and tons of streamers to stream either you know diablo on switch or diablo mortal and of course i hadnt received any invites whatsoever so i was a little sour already because you know ive been streaming this game for a really long time im making guides for a really long time i have a pretty decent amount of reach for diablo and to not really get an invite its kind of like a really feels bad moment especially considering they invited a lot of streamers that really have nothing to do with diablo at all to streaming the game so i was already feeling kind of salty walking in but i still had like really really high hopes so now its really excited about you know the future of diablo and what we could expect because again most of us are expecting a really big announcement cuz it is the first game after the opening ceremony so were kind of hyped up were sitting there the classic game team comes out and so this would be the team that youre expecting the diablo 2 remastered announcement to come from and he was so vague leading up to the trailer i am honored to present the return of another titan be able to write we never paid any heat so immediately when i see this im not a huge blizzard fanboy i really dont play any game besides diablo and i see this and im like i dont really know whats going on here like what is that like im thinking the banners that they have in diablo like i thats the first thing that came to my head and then the voice kicks on right the voice actor from diablo 2 the dude in the prison cell so im like oh flock here we go boys d2 remastered and then it keeps going right and you see like the orc and the dude fighting and then im like wait a minute im like is that a paladin whats going on why would orcs be in diablo remastered and then this dude pops up obviously thats for crafts and im like man damn it so immediately im thinking okay theyre not going to master two games in one year so – yellow – remastered its absolutely out of the window but at the same time im like holy shed like theyre still gonna be a huge announcement coming for diablo and really the only thing thats left is diablo 3 and honestly as of diablo 3 player that was the one thing i wanted more than anything like yeah before is a certainty its gonna happen it doesnt really matter when for me its just its so far down the road that i cant even like think about it diablo 2 remastered itd have been really cool but honestly the game i play almost every day is diablo 3 so the content i want the most is diablo 3 and so im like wow we might actually get a full-fledged diablo 3 expansion i cant believe it im actually even more hyped after seeing the warcraft 3 reforged than i was before so then its diablos moment right wyatt chang comes up on stage and honestly before blizzcon i mean i had really no idea that wyatt chang even still worked for diablo or blizzard cuz honestly i havent seen wyatt chang since like quinn did an interview with him like two three years ago out of blues con i havent seen him since so im like okay hes been working on something juicy so he comes on and this is kind of all of us reacting to what happens next love so im psyched right hes like we love diablo im like cuz i lo diablo right but im like you know im all smiles right because im like because im honestly thinking diablo 3 expansion this has to be big right there i mean do ski already knows duke hes like a flocking mobile dudes and like it felt so unreal right cuz this is not what anyone wanted at all this i was totally and completely blindsided by this we would joke about a diablo br we would joke about diablo mobile no one expected it like no one wanted it so i was just like i mean you can see like the definition we would use the places a platform for a news tiamo nothing just defeated thats a defeated man that is a defeated man right there the game ive been playing since vanilla the game ive been playing for like the last year without any changes besides like tiny little seasonal themes is getting nothing were getting a mobile game that no one really wanted absolutely no one asked for and so like the things that are going through my head is just like as a diablo streamer like what do i do like are we still gonna play rat runs for another year or more because this mobile game was obviously in very early stages of development so thats not gonna be ready for at least a year or more unless this you know chinese company is like amazing at pushing out code and so am i what do we do now like whats there to look forward to now so im super livid like i am just like im almost trembling and people are always like oh man you look like youre about ready to cry in the video honestly im like trembling from rage like i am just so pissed off i didnt want to just immediately jump on this all trying to be like you know flock you guys flock your stupid game and i wanted to be open-minded because im not im not a journalist by any means im a diablo streamer im a diablo content creator but i wanted to keep an open mind for the people that might still be interested in this game so then they get to the diablo q&a right and i really didnt even have an idea of what i wanted to ask i just knew i wanted to be up there and i wanted to ask him something and i wanted to ask him something that would kind of portray how the pc people felt basically everyone at blizzcon felt about this game but even in my own head im thinking like should i say something just just like completely rude should i be a dick you know im sure the exact same thing that the red shirt guy was thinking in his head should i stick to the question that i told brandi i was gonna ask or should i completely go off the road and really tell him how i feel but again you know the interest of being open minded and you know not burning my bridges kind of really took over and you know i ended up sticking to the question i originally wanted to ask and all my question was you know obviously i of diablo on pc diablo is meant for pc and thats just plain and simple its always been on pc to me its not really meant for other platforms i dont like diablo on console im not excited about diablo on switch at all i played it while i was there and i was like grossed but if thats your thing im not sh1tting on it i just i really wanted to be able to play a new diablo game on the platform that i wanted to play it on of course i was curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for and so i yeah first i asked i see i didnt ask first i said okay i see a lot of elements that weve been begging for in diablo 3 and thats totally true you know something like ground effects like so very much so in the demo like when a mob was casting something that you shouldnt be in you would get kind of a notification on the ground of hey like dont stand in this and thats something that you know people have been really wanting in diablo 3 theres a lot of mechanics in diablo 3 that theres really no way to avoid them or no real way to know that theyre coming and that it feels bad it plays bad its bad design and so thats thats one of the things i was talking about the other thing i was talking about is like more involved skill mechanics so like in a demo you know you would cast meteor and it would bring up first it would bring up your aoe radius how far away you could cast meteor and then within that you would have like a smaller circle to kind of pick exactly where you wanted that meteor to fall and i think something like that in diablo would be amazing so imagine if you will not only you have to put like your set together your build together min max your stats get augmented and stuff like that be actually the aim your skills or you have to aim some skills but not all of them this is just a bit more skill based i felt it felt a lot more like like a moba game or you really have to like time your skills to get like maximum effectiveness out of them and stuff like that and that was something that i thought would be really cool and you see a lot of that from like lost ark lineage eternal you see like theres this new like swipe mechanic were like you swipe your mouse and like like a firewall will pop up where you swiped and just like really cool skill features like that and thats what i meant when i first said what i said then i go on and again my voice is kind of trembling and its not cuz im nervous because i dont have a problem talking in front of people but like i was so upset i was so upset im so mad that was really like just doing it good cuz in my head im like like i want to say a lot worse but im not gonna is there any plans and i didnt really have to add the forever that was kind of like my attempt i guess at a jab its like strictly mobile forever i dont want to be a total dick but i wanted to absolutely portray how disappointed i was and how disappointed i think i felt everyone was and you guys have to keep in mind when i went out there to ask my question i didnt think it would get the reaction that it did i didnt think that people would actually boo i didnt expect that whatsoever so i didnt go up there with the intention or the negative intention of causing controversy or any kind of uproar i just wanted to ask a question now generally curious about because i still and i know like emulators exist but its not like a true official experience so i was really generally curious if this would ever be brought to pc and i got a very official kind of way because you know its just a platform i want to play it on its a platform to everyone at blizzcon wanted to play on so i mean the question came from a good place and i tried to be as non negative as i could possibly be we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc so you know the boo happened which i didnt really expect and im kind of glad they didnt clip the camera back to me because like i was you know you look at my face strictly mobile forever im not a happy dude its kind of find zookas zanjeer a former diablo streamer he was kind of like in the control center and like so there had a camera pointing at me they had a camera point at why it changed so he could see both feeds and he he was like you just looked pissed off um and in his head hes like fluff dont ask the question dont do it so im you know im glad they didnt point it back to me because i didnt look super super happy are there any yeah the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah so you guys see im walking away like i didnt even like stick around i just walked away i was like whatever man cool but i in no way triggered then to say what they said like that its tough to watch probably not the best reaction i dont know he like so a lot of people that saw this video were like oh my god hes talking to me right a lot of people made the reference to like imagine if like osman gold a wow player went up and asked a wow question and like they told him like cant you run this game or something on your machine and peopled be like people go crazy but why i wasnt talking to me like he was addressing the people that were booing like very very generalized statement the problem is that this didnt come off very well it wasnt well-received and of course it has become a meme on the internet now of course as you guys saw after the announcement was made it was very quiet like it was dead quiet theres no like whoo you know like people excited theres really not a lot theres a lot of stirring but not like in a positive im so excited kind of way more of like a everyones kind of like uneasy right and of course the infamous red shirt guy goes up there and he kind of just says exactly whats on his mind hey wondering is this an out of season april fools joke thats so hard to watch it makes me so uncomfortable but its not necessarily an unfair question thats certainly something i struggled with you know when i was in line so they would what happened was that someone would ask you what your question is they would do their best to answer it or if they didnt like it theyd make you step out of line so he obviously didnt tell them that was the question that he was going to ask and i did tell brandi whos on my side of the stadium i told her like i was gonna ask if its gonna be multi-platform and brandi was like im pretty sure its gonna be mobile only but if you want to ask your question anyways or if you want to let my answer shape what youre gonna ask go right ahead unless you didnt say get out of line get take out of here fluff and im actually kind of surprised because a lot of you guys might not know my channel or follow my stream but im not necessarily known for withholding my opinion and im not necessarily known for candy coding things so i was actually somewhat genuinely surprised that they didnt pull me out of line but at the same time is you know very happy they didnt red shirt guy asked his question and at this point like im already kind of leaving but i heard him say it and i heard the crowds reaction and its like oh man like what a disaster what a total disaster and so of course immediately after this you know people were going crazy on twitter people were going crazy on reddit people are going crazy on youtube now of course i dont have to tell you guys you know those of you who are home during this whole thing you know a lot of streamers were you know in uproar and obviously youtube was an uproar the amount of dislikes this thing has is absolutely insane i think i saw a post that said something where around 600000 dislikes were in total theyre also deleting negative comments those of you that stream or have been on twitch.tv knows that deleting or banning people it really only kind of empowers them or infuriates them even more so of course people are going to come back and continue to down vote maybe even make alternate accounts continued it down but post negative comments keep coming back to find new ways of posting negative comments vpn to post negative comments so its a really really poor business yeah people are gonna download it like theres nothing you can do about it man like just let it go now one of the things that we talked about a lot the day that it happened was had they released something else alongside diablo immortal do you think it wouldve been better received and the results seemed to be kind of overwhelmingly yes most people tend to think that if they said okay dt remastered plus weve got this new thing on the side you know to do alongside dt remastered or imagine they had diablo 3 content like a character pack or an exfoliation and then theyre like hey on the side weve got diablo immortal a new mobile game people would have been infinitely more receptive but the fact of the matter is this is all we got this is all we got and this is what no one wanted obviously the communitys gonna be super super upset and they were man and i had never been to a blues calm before so i didnt really know that like booing like just doesnt ever happen i had a blizzcon which is kind of crazy to me and the thing that this confuses the crap out of me is like diablo mortal is nowhere close to being done so why even announce it why not rearrange the schedule right like you dont have to keep diablo in the top spot actually if you made your announcement said hey you know pump the brakes on your expectations for diablo this year why wouldnt you just rearrange schedule to like reflect that why would you keep diablo in that top spot only to release a mobile game thats not even gonna be ready for a long time to count now on another like this was particularly hard to watch because like wyatt chang is a particularly nice guy he actually personally reached out to me before blizzcon made sure i was invited to like the community event that happens the night before for content creators when i was way to tell me he was a big fan of the podcast that we do big fan of the stream and throughout blizzcon i was given numerous opportunities to sit down and talk with wyatt chang so i just i mean i cant help feel bad for him because like one hes a super super nice guy and two i dont really know that you know all this decision-making and making the diablo immortal announcement at blizzcon we dont even know that that was really up to him you know what i mean so its like if it was like i guess he kind of deserves the backlash that he got ish but if its not it like it kind of sucks right now all that being said i dont i dont really want to cover my thoughts on double mortal in this video i actually played diablo immortal i would guess more than anyone probably did at blizzcon i went to deline like a bazillion times i played through every character class four or five times full clears you know taking as much time as i possibly could on each character and then even going further to try to like grind gear and find bugs and you know i was just often found myself just you know standing there for like thirty minutes and no one else came to the line because i really wanted to you know give it a fair chance and really cover it for you guys so i plan on doing that in a future video and really going in-depth into like my thoughts on the game how it played and even some insider information that i might have been able to have access to from either playing it for a really long time and of course having conversations with people that work at blizzard so were gonna do that in a future date i also actually had the opportunity to sit down with redshirt guy himself on stream yesterday and of course well be uploading that video as well currently its muted for some reason im in talks with twitch to try to get unmuted so that i can pull it down and put it up on youtube for you guys but will upload that as soon as we can i just wanted to kind of express and share with you guys you know what was going through my head what was the feel at the blizzcon itself how are people reacting and of course im gonna give a full review on diablo immortal in a upcoming video that will be posted to my channel as soon as possible of course if you guys want to see more head on over to my twitch channel its twitch tv lord underscore fluffy you know subscribe on youtube we do a podcast every tuesday at diablo a podcast every tuesday 10:00 p.m. eastern standard time so if you guys want to see more diablo content stick around its coming theres always guys like subscribe come over to twitch ask your questions i love you guys pizza

[..] so with this diablo immortal backlash and full effect and blizzard going into full-on damage control mode deleting comments and dislikes there are many people from gaming journalists to solo corporate shills that are sucking on the teats of these shady companies calling gamers entitled a lot of this is coming from these interactions at the q & a of diablo immortal take a look for a quick context i was curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet to just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke now what is being said is that these guys represent the vast majority of gamers that gamers are just entitled little basement-dwelling trolls who dont like anything unless its exactly what they want and throw hissy fits when they dont get it and i just want to put that shed to bed right now no we absolutely are not entitled all you gaming journalists and im using quotations because these so-called game journalists arent even gamers you all are annoying you dont even play games you just like to complain about bs like mario culturally appropriating mexican clothing or lara croft invading a foreign country as a white colonists spreading death and murdering brown people youre all just boring one-dimensional blue haired soy boys that cant enjoy anything and all of you need to leave you arent gamers you dont speak for gamers your ideas and opinions are regressive to the gaming industry because you want to you you want to know what is a dumb opinion calling millions upon millions of people entitled or trolls just because theyre sharing their opinion on a beloved franchise like this guy did here with diablo want to know something else gaming is an expensive hobby and not everyone has thousands of dollars to spend some people can only buy a couple games a year games are $60 a flocking pop we pay for these games we pay for these services from these developers from these companies and i support the devs they work harder than most people in the entertainment industry but what developers and these companies and most importantly these dumb fake gaming journalists fail to understand is that we are keeping your lights on we are the reason that your games are successful we are the reason that games like diablo are popular and beloved we are the reason for everything you have and that is because you provided us with a product that was up to our standards and that we enjoyed imagine for a second that nintendo comes out with a trailer for the highly anticipated metroid prime 4 and says its only for ios or android its a mobile game only and its never coming to the switch the backlash that would receive would be astronomical from the pissed-off fanbase and youre gonna sit there and tell me and look at me square in the face and tell me im entitled if i get pissed the flock off that this that metroid prime for would go mobile youve got to be flocking kidding me youre out of your mind of course devs can create whatever in the hell they want but understand that you have a fanbase of dedicated players who are on one dedicated platform and they have been there for years decades even supporting whatever you have created and they expect a certain quality and standard and consistency of that product if you stray away from that be prepared for at the very least to have some opinions and criticisms thrown your way these games arent free why are you acting like these games dont cost money why do you act like we all dont have lives we need time for bills we need pay for and families we need to feed we dont want to pay for a shed product or a product we dont want or want to spend hours on for example if i go to a supermarket that ive been ordering white bread from for years and they all of a sudden get rid of white bread forever and im like is this a joke wheres the white bread and they go well hey we have some pumpernickel dont you have a mouth who cares if its not what youve been ordering for years im going to complain about that and if they wont give me what i expect im taking my business elsewhere thats what we did with star wars battlefront – thats what we did with battlefield 5 thats what we are doing with diablo immortal and this is what were going to keep doing for the rest of time until you developers and companies understand and realize that you forgot who your real bosses are its not your managers your share hold or whoever has stock in your company or whoever your investors are its the consumer we the consumer pay your salary we pay for your houses we pay for your cars your food your everything you are nothing without us your gains are nothing without us what the flock is a game without the gamer the only thing you all should be afraid of is us and it sucks that there is still a ton of gamers who dont realize how much power they have with their wallets we can shut you down we are your biggest fear and we are what keeps you up at night in a cold sweat because you know deep down and im talking to you ea activision all you corporate suits all the way up to at the top deep down you know that if we dont keep coming back with an open wallet youre out of a job so like any other form of entertainment we will keep doing what we are doing keeping you guys in check we are getting more and more woke we arent children anymore we are not going to fall for your shed anymore like pride an accomplishment or player choice we are done with your bs we are gamers we dont want games that are made with greedy intentions we want to play games that are made with passion with dedication love and attention and i know there are still companies and developers out there who strive to prove this to us every day that they are still out there and they have a passion to show us a story to tell or a creation for us to enjoy gangs like a hat in time god of war spiderman breath of the wild red dead to horizon zero dawn so much more these games every single one of them proved to us all the time that there is still developers out there who are true gamers true gamers who want to create and put fun over the money put fun over microtransactions loot boxes and other bs and these games and these developers efforts to bring them to life will continuously be commended and games that are putting great first will continue to be condemned i never want to hear that we are entitled ever again not from a fake journalist not from a fake gaming journalist not from a corporate suit because we are far from entitled it is you in fact who are entitled you all believe youre so entitled to our hard-earned money that you think you can do whatever you want implement whatever kind of money grubbing skiing in your games that you want that you can implement whatever shady tactics to get into our wallets and im gonna let you in on a little secret its not going to work for much longer every day we are pushing against all this crap more and more we want to see more effort in these games i believe very firmly that creativity fun and honesty will prevail games made with love and passion before greed will be the norm i believe were almost there we are standing up to you so please get back in line get back to your desk scrap whatever dumbass idea you had to come up with a way to squeeze us for every dollar we have because its not gonna work anymore we are done we are fed up we are the gamers and we are your final boss thank you for watching peace out

[..] i know some people dont care they dont understand diablo some people might so diablo 3 came out in 2012 they created the auction house where you when you found items you could sell them and stuff like that huge backlash from the diablo fans although i liked it because im kind of like im a douche bag i enjoyed selling stuff to make money i was making money off the habla but i do love books you could sell it for real money yeah so in diablo 3 launched in 2012 for the first eight months they had a real money auction house wow if you found an item that was rare you could sell it i sold one i sold the hacks i found for 150 bucks it was all real money right to your bank account and those are the orange items right yeah they were like the the legendary orange item its like orange gold green when set items yeah so like all that shed right i made i made a hundreds of dollars on the game it was crazy i got flocking nuts i originally went in thinking i cant wait to play diablo its gonna be like diablo 2 or whatever and but instead i found what was fun was doing that but so didnt a lot of other people cuz everyone was using the auction house rather than searching for gear like the game is about grinding for gear to find just farming shed yeah youre just flockin farming to sell it youre not even label people had jobs people hired people to farm for them oh yeah i did the asian bots were insane at that so you know so eight months to a year later they get rid of the auction house and everyone loves it you know theyre like happy right because theyre like now its a real game again and its weird because i was upset at the time but then i fell in love with the game as for a game again i reckon now i love i have a character i worked very hard on whatever and its obviously coming to the end its been – since 2012 everybodys waiting for them to announce diablo 4 or to announce a new character – reaper of souls maybe while we wait for diablo 4 and da-da-da-da-da and everyones joking the because blizzard doesnt usually give the habló a whole lot of love anymore and blizzards like ts and everybody like oh theres gonna be were gonna be doing some big diablo shed its gonna be nuts get out here whatever the flock and people like oh my god theyre gonna announce the habló for you know you know theyre gonna announce something big something huge gonna happen and the everybody was joking like what if they imagine if it was like just a flocking they announced a phone app or something and it was all microtransactions and everyones like oh my god dude that would be flocking a nightmare so all these hardcore flocking diablo fans are out out there and what did they do they announced an app game that looks like diablo 3 but worse on a phone the flocking crowd after they announced this the crowd went dead silent the whole like these are diablo fans right so this is like the dorkiest of the dorky right because while fans theres a lot of new wow players right theres a lot of wow players that started to know four or five and stuff like that but diablo dates theres a lot of a lot of the audience dates back to the 90s so these people are like hardcore pc gamer type people what i know weve been over this the diablo sales a diablo outsold word at world of warcraft then this was the game okay okay thats not what im saying im trying to say to you is like like 70% of the world world of warcraft online people now are like people that jumped on around the oh four zero fives but but diablo like trendy was yeah right a core of diablos players are still those people from the 90s its its just a huge diablo 2 is so big so when they announced this these people have like the thunder sticks you know like at the beginning of a star wars rally or something like that yeah these people got thunder sticks and theyre like and everything like the world of diablo is about to get even bigger and people and flocking they announced this as an app and the whole just place just dies and people just like what the video for the game on youtube has two hundred and seventy two thousand dislikes and seven thousand likes and and blizzard keeps taking down and re uploading the video to try to get rid of the dislikes see this is this is what these companies dont get is that we get when you do a money grab we understand that when id um yeah its really its like they think well youre theres stupid also i was looking at the forms again today yeah and multiple people are reporting that they like have like literally sat there and watched as these videos go on youtube go from 300000 dislikes to 200000 dislikes like that theyre getting rid of dislikes oh my god yeah if you have been in with youtube you can complain about spam botting and if they do that they could get them removed which is see this is why i like the video game community because they will flocking lash back at you look what flocking liked rock arts is doing right now after they flocked in star wars battlefront yeah nobody wants to touch touch this shed with a ten-foot pole i love that people flocking rebel in video games way more than they rebel in real life right flocking amazing and and the thing about this one too is theres not a whole lot the sjws can grab my because usually the video game market like the game companies they use sjws to protect themselves oh yeah but theres nothing you can really sjw about this is not about a woman its not about an agenda its about we dont want to pay for in-app purchases and we wanted diablo 4 on a flocking console on a flocking desktop diablo is made for computer right but listen to this this is so this is after the place is kind of like buzzing like oh listen to this flocking guy by the way this is lord fluffy and he is like hes actually a friend of mine and hes a fairly popular diablo streamer so i was marking out i was like oh this is great that he asked this question he basically is like you know so its just gonna come to pc right yeah like nobody believes this is real ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this or in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any a moment to do pc you guys not have phones yeah then they crap on the fans oh you would you guys dont have phones what a cockade by the way this guy like disrespect this shed out of it what the flock you guys dont have phones did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet who wants to flocking yes its also on the switch youre right this guy flocking flocking its old wheres the other guy that comes out you want these things on next listen to this guy listen to this guys great hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke its a fully fully fledged jiya blow experience on on mobile which everybody will get to play and hopefully which will bring new heroes to sanctuary as well as welcoming that community back into it and something were very excited about i should say were super excited about diablo immortal we brought you are the hablo to cosmos pc xbox place theyre really trying to justify what theyre doing its like yeah we get that we dont give a flock your audience doesnt its they have arrogance dude the first time i ever saw this happen in a video game world that i remember yeah was when the xbox one and the playstation 4 coming out yup and xbox were saying had to be always online yep and then every said flock you we dont want that and they said well you know if you dont like it you can just play xbox 360 like oh really no how about we just go buy ps4 flockface yeah exactly you know i mean and thats what happened they got their ass handed to them after that its its almost like dude why do people like invite failure i dont understand this i went on a rant about this when xbox launched and i said before xbox launch went what you were just describing i said dude right i said right and this was before the the heat this is before the everybody knew about it when the news was just leaking about like what was going on and i said dude if you hired me to be the head of microsoft right now i would make that company an extra like hundreds of millions into a billion dollars or something because i would make the right decision and get rid of all this shed and do the right thing and for this shed gets out and im like somebody has to do that theres no way this is gonna work out and then yeah look what happened its like any one of us could have told you that so why is there some guy over there whos like so adamant about carrying through a plan that is flocking retarded because theyre not really gamers you know i mean like when they when x good like the people that are developing it and like even those people on stage probably really actually didnt have a say in this its like a shareholder people its the top executive people so youve got all these people sitting up there like shed look at all these people making all this money on microtransactions and bull well we want it on that were gonna do the next diablo game its like even though thats not what any of us want they dont care they see all these mobile games making sh1tloads of money but heres the other thing if im working at blizzard im saying this guys lets get in on this cash grab in the mobile games but we cant do it until we deliver diablo 4 or we deliver something else so like its quite you think they could have launched it theyre just theyre big rich money hungry people they are out of touch they dont care they dont raise but they could have made more money they could have made a ton of money if they had come out and said we are announcing that we are beginning the ideas and whatever the initial whatever of diablo 4 and then they show the graphic and then they say we this is at the very beginning stages but its a huge announcement we wanted to let you know it could you know were years away still from it we are working so hard on diablo 4 and the ideas your creativity the lore the story making blah blah blah and get everyone all fired up and say but we know you want other things now so heres another playable character in reaper of souls and guess what we have an app coming out called this and then people would accept that they and it didnt cost you anything to just kind of tease people about diablo 4 but to me this tells you theres no plans for diablo 4 i mean that was half the anger is just a major disappointment but also the fact that they built up this is like all we heard about for like they sold all these virtual tickets and if you guys if anybody gets a chance can like duty you look up the videos of this zoom in on the crowd leah dont we going back i want you to what are you doing i just wanted to say one thing for you finished oh my god she does this all the time she doesnt talk let me talk we talk like back and forth she doesnt do that so i dont know what she was gonna say but my i was just gonna say like look into the crowd at these poor sons of bitches with their funder sticks like not being able to use them this is this is i mean i just love how theyre like they just like the video game community is like dude were not dealing with your bs go flock yourself yeah well is it a publicly traded company i think so yeah see thats the problem because when you have your company publicly traded and electronic arts is the same thing do you have fiduciary responsibility to make the most money for your company right so the stock prices go up so you have a responsibility to your stockholders and when you have that hanging over your head youre just gonna go for a flocking money grab and its gonna just poison your company

[..] so following the announcement of diablo immortal a blizzcon a lot of people have asked to me to give an opinion on the situation and absolute pr nightmare following the games reveal and live q&a but first for those of you that arent aware of what diablo immortal is or why people are pissed off about it let me get you up to speed for several years fans of diablo havent had any big announcements in terms of new content for diablo 3 or news of diablo 4 or any news of remakes for diablo 1 or 2 for pc the last time anything substantial was released for diablo was the reaper of souls expansion for diablo 3 back in 2014 this led many people to believe that this was going to be the year where something big would be announced for diablo a blizzcon this idea was further backed up by the fact that there were a few articles in regards to blizzard posting job listings for an unannounced diablo project earlier this year and a few days before blizzcon a few fake blizzcon leaks said there would be a diablo 2 remastered announcement unfortunately what fans got wasnt a new or remastered diablo game for pc like they were hoping for but a mobile mmo a rpg diablo game for ios and android instead understandably the fans werent happy and the reception to this game is probably the most negative ive ever seen and if anything it just goes to show how out of touch blizzard are with their community i mean what the flock did they think was gonna happen the vast majority of fans that attended liske on our pc gamers theyre not interested in whats essentially a more sh1tty version of diablo 3 on mobile which will obviously have a clunkier controls a lower difficulty of content than a pc game and be riddled with microtransactions of course people are going to be pissed off and disappointed if thats the only announcement one of your supposed core franchises has had in the past four to five years personally i flocking hate mobile games other than old school runescape on mobile thats the only decent one i can think of id rather do nothing than play a mobile game but i do have to admit when i saw a bit of the gameplay from diablo immortal i did think to myself you know for a mobile game it looks decent in terms of gameplay and i think if blizzard had announced this alongside another deal project maybe a diablo remaster for pc or even the slightest hint the diablo 4 is in development then i think the community reception would be completely different maybe even slightly positive it seems to me that as blizzard has grown over the years into the mega company they are today their focus has shifted from how can we please fans and make incredible games – how can we please investors and to maintain unsustainable profit increases each year from a business point of view its a very smart idea for them to make diablo a mobile in fact i bet theyll make way more money by creating this mobile live service diablo game than they would from making diablo 4 simply because of how large the mobile market is and how popular mobile games are in china is depressing but when you look at the revenue mobile games make they can far surpass pc and console games costing a fraction of the price to make just look at league of legends in 2017 their worldwide revenue was 2.1 billion dollars yet in the same year a chinese knockoff version of league on mobile called arena of valor surpassed 3 billion dollars in a similar time frame with 96% of their revenue coming from the chinese market im sure if blizzard did make diablo 4 or older diablo remasters it would be insanely popular and make a crapload of money but as weve seen from the triple-a gaming industry time and time again a crapload of money just isnt the same as all of the money in the world which they constantly seem to be striving to make regardless of artistic integrity or respect from the audience that gave them their success in the first place the truth is that a brand new traditional diablo game on pc and consoles would be way harder to monetize than a mobile live service diablo game i think the most entertaining part of this sh1tshow came from the reaction of the crowd after the games announcement and blizzards attempt at damage control honestly watching the opening ceremony into q&a i felt so bad for watching for having to try and make the audience excited for this mobile game it just wasnt happening i think he was expecting roars of cheers and applause after the trailer but instead he got a few clubs and what id imagined to be many disappointed faces we want to use mobile devices as the platform for a new diablo game because nothing brings a family together like slaying demons diablo immortal [applause] [music] the two highlights of the diablo immortal q&a for me was the guy who asked if itd be available on pc and also the guy who asked if it was a late april fools joke is there any plans to make this play strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at a moment to do pc did you guys not have fun yeah you guys hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke unfortunately nobody asked how aggressively blizzard will be monetizing this game of microtransactions which was the main thing i was interested in knowing something i think worth pointing out about this diablo immortal q&a is that the developers didnt have answers to a lot of fairly basic questions people had about the game such as a release date how does progression work how difficult will it be which leads me to believe that the games are a long way from release i just wonder why they decided to announce this game at blizzcon when its so far out rather than a smaller then maybe focused on mobile phones or something if theyre announcing diablo immortals so early on in development it makes me think that its highly likely that there arent currently any other diablo games in the works because anyone even remotely competent at marketing would know that this game is best announced alongside a diablo product that your core fanbase actually wants something else thats been talked about allies that blizzard seems to be contracting chinese internet company netties to make diablo immortal and a lot of people have pointed out that two of netties as previous mobile games crusaders of lights and endless of god look very similar in terms of user interface to the diablo immortal footage that was shown causing many people to claim that diablo immortal is essentially a reskin of a chinese diablo ripoff personally im not too sure if thats true when it comes to ui design it seems like there are a few differences and honestly i dont see any other way you could make an a rpg work on mobile without this kind of ui layout so be honest all mobile a rpgs look pretty similar anyway so my assumption would be that netties even used some kind of mobile a rpg template or took inspiration from what worked in their previous games but to me it does look a little bit more than just a reskin one of the major talking points of this controversy was how blizzard seems to be censoring criticism by hiding top comments on both the diablo immortal gameplay trailer and cinematic trailer even i posted a few comments that got removed of course this only made things worse and pissed people off even more further perpetuating this absolute pr nightmare they even uploaded separate unlisted versions of the cinematic and gameplay trailer on the battlenet launcher to try and escape the dislikes it didnt seem to work of course all of this didnt seem to stop a lot of the so-called gaming journalists from rushing to blizzards defense on twitter with one absolute flocking twats trying to twist the entire situation to be a sexism issue and toxic masculinity what a flockin bellend honestly whenever theres a controversy in gaming that gamers are generally pissed off about you always get these social justice retards trying to spin things and make it about politics gender and discrimination any form of negativity and criticism some gaming journalists find toxic you know whats more toxic allowing triple-a publishers to continue to design games purely around monetization gambling mechanics and pay2win bs without cooling them out on it negativity in gaming is a flocking good thing if you ask me if it wasnt for negativity and gaming communities coming together to say flock you to the suits at the top of these companies then nothing would ever change ea wouldnt have changed the loot boxes in star wars battlefront 2 world of warcraft classic wouldnt be in development old school runescape wouldnt exist if nobody spoke out and complained about the direction weve slowly been heading in the gaming industry over the past few years because of fear of being perceived as toxic wed have much worse and more aggressively monetized games out today than we already do so to all you toxic flockers out there on youtube and on the internet that actually complain about things you dont like about games or the games industry thank you what youre doing is better than pandering to triple-a publishers that already make more money than you could possibly perceive unlike some of the shields who consider themselves as games journalists other than that i was quite happy about the warcraft 3 remaster and released a announcement for wow classic so at least thats a positive we can end this video on and if youre a diablo fan then fs in the chat i guess but thats it for this video guys as always id love to know your thoughts on this whole situation in the comments below do you think diablo immortal would have been received differently if it was announced alongside another diablo game or are we just all entitled flocks omitting our toxic masculinity and should be ashamed of ourselves id love to hear your thoughts in the comments below but thanks for watching i hope you all have a great day and theyll see you again really soon

[..] fluffy face of diablo 3 is ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet to yes its also on the switch youre right hello blizzard definitely didnt expect what they got when they you know pretty much announced and revealed the new diablo game or should i say the new mobile diablo game because diablo immortal is not an actual pc title or anything that you know just diablo fans in general gaming fans in general probably would have expected no no no this is a mobile game and diablo fans are pissed so heres a probably shocking tidbit of news for you to hear okay i have never played a single diablo game in my life never never have played it i dont think at least ive always heard that theyre really good games and ive never heard anyone say anything bad really about these games ive always just you know heard very good things about them ive never picked any of them up ive considered doing so a few different times when they go on sale and stuff like that but i just never really have gotten into it i dont know maybe thats something ill have to do but you know this is just crazy to watch honestly its kind of funny in some regards because this game is just shaping up to be a dumpster fire both on the community side and probably on the game side as well because honestly theres just i dont think any examples really of a mobile game from a franchise like diablo ever coming to mobile and it just being good you know fallout shelter is garbage and i think that might be really the only mobile game i can remember from a triple-a franchise that ive actually played now the community has a really good reason to be mad about this and honestly im kind of glad to see that they are mad about this because its been quite a minute since diablo 3 and diablo fans have been waiting for a new game in the franchise for years now so obviously you can imagine how disappointed theyd be when blizzard holds this event theyve been teasing this and then everyone whos a diablo fan comes to this event hoping to see something about a new actual diablo game just to have blizzard pretty much mocked them on stage and to reveal this mobile game that nobody in the community wanted or asked for now ive been reading a lot of articles about this and i see a couple different viewpoints from different articles and stuff like that and i want to talk about that and i want to talk about the controversy around this game because i 100% side with the community about this game as a call of duty fan i can only imagine how pissed most of us would be since weve been waiting for modern warfare 2 remastered and diablo fans have even wanted remastered diablo games but i can only imagine how pissed the whole call of duty community would be if next year activision came on stage and said hey guys guess what were were mastering modern warfare 2 black ops 1 black ops 2 but heres the catch its not gonna be on console its not gonna be on pc you will be able to play for the first time these games on mobile not only would i not really be surprised if that happened but i would also be kind of pissed because i mean you might as well just poke them in the eye while youre at it and if youre blizzard you should have thought this through much better because diablo is a game that is primarily played on pc and then of course theres console players and stuff too if youre going to announce a new diablo game the very last thing you want to do is announce to a passionate pc community that theyre not getting a new diablo game as a matter of fact the only people who will be getting a new diablo game are mobile gamers and knowing how mobile gaming goes this isnt going to be any traditional diablo game or anything this is just going to be some sort of microtransaction farm for blizzard this all even culminated into a point where the crowd reacted by at the pan asking questions even asking if it was a april fools joke from blizzard which the community around him actually applauded which thats not a good sign if youre revealing a game and the worst thing honestly when i watched back on this clip and i look at it and i see number one how the community in this you know arena itself has reacted to the news by booing the people on stage the last thing you want to do is kind of shed on them and kind of poke at them because when everyone was talking and everything about it the guy on stage said and i quote do you guys not have phones i think the last thing you want to do when you announce a game to boos actually from a crowd of passionate players within that franchise is is to ask something like that dont you all have phones everybody has a goddamn television – but that doesnt mean that they want a tv built-in app diablo game you know this just wasnt the way to approach it on blizzards part and they really should have considered holding a mobile game at least beyond actually releasing a game on pc the community has reacted very very negatively it has become somewhat of a controversy in the gaming community after this all this happened because like i said diablo fans never wanted a mobile game there was no demand for a mobile game everyone was waiting on diablo for blizzard lets everyone know that this event will have some sort of diablo re you know related event going on inside of it and then they tell them that theres multiple diablo productions going on right now and then when everyone thinks theyre gonna get a diablo 4 game they just get this sh1tty mobile game that knowing blizzard will likely end up with some form of micro transactions that are either pay to win or just complete spam inside of the game and i cant blame people for being upset about it you know i cant blame people for tearing the subreddit apart i cant blame people for getting on social media to voice their concerns i cant blame the people in that event for asking such questions as is this an out of season april fools joke when something like this comes up when i first heard about this i didnt even know it was a mobile game i just heard diablo immortals coming out and people were pissed i was like well i havent ever played a diablo game that i can remember it doesnt really matter to me but then looking into this seeing that clip and seeing how blizzard has reacted in a very tone-deaf manner this is an example this is what people have been talking about this is highlighting a major issue in the gaming industry i just dont get how blizzard thinks that its appropriate to respond to all of this backlash with this rhetoric as if just because they have phones they have to play our mobile game you know after this happened there are now calls for boycotts there are petitions to get the game canceled theres accusations against blizzard for removing dislikes on the cinematic and gameplay trailers which have huge amounts of dislikes but then according to kotaku in this article i know i know its kotaku i know they the blizzcon executive producer actually admitted that they were expecting backlash but not to this degree and this is my point if you were expecting backlash and you knew that the community didnt want this why did you come on stage with this product i think that the community would have been much happier if you just came on stage and said look we have a mobile game coming out however we are going to have diablo 4 out before it there is another diablo game coming very soon but they didnt do that they came out on stage they announced this product no one wanted they got booed and then reacted probably in the worst way possible because i mean i understand you think backlash is coming but you dont react to that way to the people you know but another problem with the game that has been highlighted by some fans is that there have been art and assets and other things from previous diablo games cut and actually put into this mobile game however these are just accusations the people behind diablo have denied this theyve said that these different assets and stuff have been built from the ground up for this game something in this article though that i do want to talk about is it says and i quote the explosion of outrage has many on social media discussing the extent to which video game culture enables entitlement you know the whole thing about being consumer is that you are entitled okay you dont have to be a cunt you dont have to be an ass about things but you are entitled to the product that you want thats the beautiful thing about capitalism and competition is that you very clearly have something that you want youre entitled to you have the money youre the one buying it someone has to put up if no ones making the product you go make the product if the products being made other people are gonna make the product theres gonna be competition better products are made from that so the whole idea that video game culture enables entitlement is i feel like a little bit flawed but has some ground to it because thats just how we as consumers behave in the first place theres people who go into mcdonalds theyre entitled to food as well most of the time at least and then when they go in there and they dont have whatever they want or they dont get their food in time people are gonna act very very similar to how theyre acting now except theyre doing it in front of somebody theyre not really doing it in a reddit post or doing it in the crowd of some auditorium you know the video game culture does enable entitlement but so doesnt pretty much all markets because if there was no entitlement to want the product that you want and then to get it from somebody there wouldnt really be business you know i hope you understand what im saying i just i think that that goes a bit too far and it pins too much blame you know anyways let me know what you think down below if you did enjoy

in my video talking about sonys crusade towards fanservice videogames ive talked about how the console market is dying at the moment in asia due to the rise of pc gaming and mobile gaming to gaming platforms that are cheaper more convenient and in some ways more advanced than its console counterparts at least the pcs for advanced i said in that video that the pc gaming market and the mobile gaming market are going toe-to-toe in terms of popularity and what do you know i was correct or at least in southeast asia i was correct now heres the thing that you need to be aware of and youre talking about a growing market like the mobile sure the mobile market is growing but the problem with that is the market is incredibly competitive people are probably only going to play one or two mobile games at most its going to be really difficult for people to switch into other mobile games unless if they got tired with their current favorite mobile games or if those mobile games are pulling off some really stupid moves with their business decisions or gameplay changes so when game developers are trying to capitalize it to the popularity of the mobile market they really need to understand the audiences that theyre going to attract when developing their games while mobile gaming is pretty broad in terms of his audiences you still need to have your own niche you still need to have a target audience who will definitely buy your game unfortunately this is a memo that none of the people at blizzard god blizzard if you guys dont know is the game company behind the habló starcraft warcraft its mmo counterpart and their most popular game as of late overwatch this gaming company is so big and popular that they have their own convention called blizzcon when they announce upcoming games and future content for already existing titles one of the games being announced for the future is the next installment of diablo titled diablo immortal now people have been really anticipating for years for another diablo game to come out but this trailer for diablo immortal wasnt really received well in fact i can safely say that it has an incredibly poor reception on both the gameplay trailer and a cinematic trailer why is that you might ask well its very simple actually this game is going to be for mobile you can get this game on google play and apples app store when its released so years and years of waiting for another property outlaw game and what the fans got instead is a very similar move that poll with command & conquer and this ladies and gentlemen highlights a massive misunderstanding and disconnect between the developers who developed this game and the audiences that they attract now heres the thing blizzard has developed a successful mobile game before and that is hearthstone hearthstone is very successful on mobile because its pretty much a direct port of the already successful pc version of the game a lot of people know hearthstone and even my friends play hearthstone in both mobile and pc but the reason why hearthstone is so popular in the mobile market is because its a port of the already successful pc version if diablo immortal is announced to be a pc game and a proper next installment for the diablo franchise i think people wouldnt have been angry about it but evidently you have tons and tons of people at blizzcon booing the developers the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc and then you have this guy being a hero that we all need at this point hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke oh man that was brilliant and that pretty much sums up the reaction that a lot of diablo fans have with this game what the hell is blizzard doing the apple fans have been asking for a proper diablo game ever since the third one really disappointed them although reaper of souls managed to win the heart of a lot of diablo fans back its one expansion pack too late diablo at this moment is not really doing well with the fans so the best way to win their hearts over is to release a game and a platform that theyre not playing did you guys not have fun yes we do have phones we just dont game on them or at least i dont play games in the play store i do play shin megami tensei strange journey on mobile with a nintendo dsm later but aside from a nintendo dsi emulator i aint playing anything on my twitter browsing hentai data based communication device or speaking of hands eyes if you want me to talk more about hand ties you can support me on patreon for just $1 a month link down below also huge thanks to my new patreon circ joshua and brian you guys are fantastic anyway lets get back to diablo immortal all the hate for diablo immortal is primarily caused by blizzard not announcing any mainline diablo game for the pc or the next-gen consoles if you play diablo in there for some reason the fact that this game is on mobile shows that whoever is in charge with the diablo franchise right now doesnt understand what their core audience is wanted they dont want a mobile game they just want a proper diablo title on pc something that they havent gotten as a flake so why do you have to announce a game that people will definitely boo on stage whoever is in charge of diablo doesnt understand why this game will fail so let me explain to them you built your fan base for this game mainly on the pc for the record i love the first two diablo games there are two good old pc games that i used to play in my notebook when i was in middle school because its an incredibly low spec game that can run on anything and its awesome diablo 3 was incredibly disappointing for me because the always online error seven bs and the game played that was just not as substantial that was at the year where people keep recommending me torchlight 2 as an alternative and my god i freaking love torchlight 2 its the diablo game that is better than the newer diablo game im not really like a huge fan of diablo but i do love their games and you can say that i am one of the many potential audiences for this game but i dont play mobile games the games i play on mobile are like i said nintendo ds games using an emulator like shin megami tensei straight journey or chrono trigger if i hear diablo i expect a proper pc dungeon crawling game and there is a market for that but there isnt a market for a diablo game on the mobile is there a market for a dungeon crawling game on mobile sure are theyre going to be interested in a diablo dungeon crawling game when they are too busy playing honor dungeon crawling games no and especially if the game that were talking about is pretty much a reskin of the other game from the same developer the mobile market right now is overpopulated its a really damn competitive market there are so many ideas being tried on mobile that you really need to be creative in order to pull off a successful mobile title piggybacking on the success of the diablo franchise is not going to work youre gonna piss off the fanbase and youre not gonna invite more people into your game oh you have is a diablo game on mobile which considering how diverse and creative double-bond gaming market really is right now its not a really good selling point and were not even getting to the micro transaction side i dont know how exploitative the micro transaction of this game will be in the ign article responded with this and theyre capable of top-tier gaming experiences okay just because mobile gaming is getting more more powerful doesnt mean that you should develop your next diablo game on mobile yes most if not all diablo fans or people who like diablo probably own a smartphone but they dont game on the smartphone and they certainly wont play a diablo game on the smartphone they want to play diablo game on pc sure the current smartphone has the technology to bring high-end games but youre making game for a fanbase that dont really plan the smartphone it shows a fundamental lack of understanding on the market that you are trying to hit trust me when i say that i know the mobile audiences very well and theyre way too busy playing other games when you release this one and best of all you dont have to trust me i think you all need a visual representation of peoples interest in this game this is a perfect visual representation look at that no seriously look at that look at the number of people who are interested to play this game this is an event full of people who are loyal fans of your product you make a game that deviates from their expectations and you have booing and people asking if this is an april fools joke and if theyre not doing that theyre not going to visit your booth you can try to defend this game as much as you want you can say that this game is designed to be a bit more mainstream were just following the current trend and if you dont like the game you dont have to play it but this antagonizing attitude will piss people off to the point where none of them are going to buy the game you already alienated your entire fan base so who else is gonna buy this game the market will decide in fact the market has already spoken zero interest in this game and you can just look at it through these sad and depressing pictures and now we get into the heartaches i mean good god the hotcakes are off the charts with this one heres a good example wow i mean wow call reed richards because i dont think he is capable of having this level reach do you know why people associate mobile games with women because they play very simple match three games like candy crush i have the data right here they dont associate women and mobile gaming with games like say mobile legends most of the women who play mobile games that i know of are playing very casual very simple mobile games also the people who bash mobile games are not bashing them because there are more women playing mobile games theyre bashing them because mobile games are not for their microtransactions pay2win bs that a lot of people dont get when playing full price games on more advanced gaming platforms mostly dont get that and mobile is just not a good platform to use to play more advanced type of games people prefer the comfort of the mouse and keyboard or the controller when playing certain video games especially when those games are more advanced in those platforms mobile games are surely getting more and more advanced but theyre not gonna be as advanced as their pc gaming or console gaming counterpart finally caught up in specs to the software thats being developed mobile is very much a viable platform for resource-intensive games like diablo ok one just because mobile games are capable of running more resource intensive games doesnt mean that you should make a diablo game on it and – you dont play diablo games on mobile you just dont gatekeeper to the franchise dude i can tell you for sure that women who play mobile games are not going to be interested with this one women who grew up playing diablo and loving diablo are not going to be interested with this one were giving out criticisms and telling developers why and how this game will fail but your response to our criticisms is oh youre just gatekeeping and preventing newcomers to come in i dont even get the logic behind this one but since no one in the development team are listening at all enjoy those empty booths oh my god like i said hearthstone is a trading card game that is successful on the pc and the reason why its successful on the mobile is because the mobile version is a direct port you are completely off if you compare the game to this diablo mobile game you might notice a little bit of trend when you go on twitter and find these really hot takes a lot of these verified users defending the new game are game journalists and industry insiders people who are supposed to represent the interest of the consumers but theyre not theyre there to shield theyre there to defend blizzard committing such lazy hack job of a game what makes it worse is that blizzard is a were of your criticisms they know about the ratio they know about the negative reception but instead of trying to fix the game theyre trying to hide any sorts of criticisms and even delete their videos or unlisted them and we upload it to reset the ratings as if thats going to work stop hiding from criticisms blizzard everyone is airing their comments on this everyone is making videos on this everyone is letting people know about their concerns the more and more you hide from it people will lose faith to you as a company theyre gonna move on from diablo to utter better dungeon crawling games to sum up can anyone blame diablo fans for being incredibly disrespectful towards blizzard or anyone who is responsible for this hack job of a game this product is downright insulting to the fans this product screams we dont care what the fans want all we care about is to follow the current trends without understanding what makes it trendy in the first place also to make tons and tons of money because you know the mobile gaming market is trendy right trust me when i say that i know the mobile gaming demographic very well i have family members who are mobile gamers i have friends who are mobile gamers i know what they want i know what theyre looking for i can say with absolute certainty that theyre not looking for diablo immortal when mobile legends or faiths go or any other mobile games are still dominating the market and since the diablo fans are not asking for a mobile game the final question for today is who is the target demographic for diablo immortal ponder on that for a second blizzard or anyone who is responsible for this lazy hack job

[..] i want to take you guys in a little journey lets rewind to 2014 april the first web blizzard gleefully announced their new mobile game happy reaper an april fools joke diablo on the mobile where they rightfully take the piss out of mobile games sarcastically talking about features fast forward to 2018 blizzcon activision blizzard and ironically announces the latest addition to the diablo franchise a mobile game diablo immortal what happened and where did it all go so wrong if you think of being a little bit dramatic thats because i flocking am thats the point theres people on the internet going around effectively saying were all overreacting were getting just really mad at developers for no reason if you dont like a game dont play it and theyre missing the point so thats what im gonna try and articulate im gonna try and explain as to why blizzard messed this up so badly how they did it wrong and why everyones kind of like how i am a little bit not not too happy cuz im generally speaking a pretty happy guy but i mean this whole diablo situation couldnt have been done worse like theres the right way of doing things and theres a wrong way so lets go over what blizzard did wrong the status if you want a blueprint of how not to release a mobile game then look no further than electronic arts most recent mobile game release at e3 earlier on this year command & conquer rivals a downtrodden deprived fanbase having their game at that was in the process of being made cut had nothing since 2012 and then at e3 they say theyre going to be releasing a new command & conquer title and then electronic arts tries to force a mobile game down this diehard fan bases throat and as you can imagine people werent too happy you go to their official reveal trailer 62000 down votes to 2.9 karos is it sound familiar so i have fan base no game for some years greedy company trying to force some mobile mtx written bs down peoples throats and people arent too happy about it and after the announcement of this debauchery of the command & conquer franchise the ea chief design officer patrick soderlund has the audacity to say we need two respects mobile games just respect it this sounds familiar at all any of this any of this yeah its because diablo activision blizzard are literally doing the exact same flocking thing diablos audience is comprised of primarily pc gamers and has been for the last 20 years blizzcon its full of the most die-hard fans they literally get into a middle to most of them and fly to anaheim paying hundreds of dollars on hotel rooms hundreds of dollars on the tickets theyre the most hard-core blizzard fans diablo as a game the community is generally speaking pretty hardcore they have modes that are called high core not gonna be in the mobile game by the way now either blizzard is so far out of touch with their community that they thought this was going to go down well as the main event and the opening ceremony the main event on the main stage directly after it or disgusting money-grubbing greedy little investors just want to make a quick buck from the diablo ip and theyre gonna run blizzard into the flocking ground i really dont know what the better of the two options is hopefully all the feedback and the uproar and the outrage that the diablo community is causing make these parties wake up make them realize that were not happy with what theyre trying to force down our throats that they cant just announce nothing for many years and then be like heres a mobile game by the way give us money now you think blizzard couldnt make things any worse and youre wrong the people who are in control of the diablo youtube channel had to decided to take it upon themselves to basically start censoring people in the comments section you can just go i mean ive run a youtube channel its pretty easy you just click on a comment you dont like open the thing and your breasts allene i myself only ever deleted literal people just linking viruses but no theyre just straight-up deleting actual comments your boy here hes a hero red pill shark he says 14 times i have been deleted so i say again no king rules forever my son after a great 20 years and many unforgettable memories we part ways you changed blizzard youve changed so that yeah 14 times its been deleted and you might be thinking of just make this up no theres tons of people who have had their comments deleted like other youtubers posting comments on the diablo channel just having their completed you go to the social blade okay this is a scary thing you go to the social blade and you can track how many total comments have been posted on the video versus how many are currently there now as it stands at ty of at the time of making this video blizzard have removed twenty five thousand and forty six comments twenty five thousand i dont know if theyve got like some sort of moderation software going on there but no they do theyre specifically going out and censoring reasonable comments now people are just basically if you dont know i mean as a stream right this is like the first rule of streaming is if you dont like a behavior you subtly deal with it or you just you should ignore it right and then it kind of just goes away or it doesnt get worse the second you try and center people you just multiply the issue and now everyone is there and theyve just multiplied the problem that made it just so much worse for themselves and its just yeah hey blizzard delete this heres a scary part and im a little bit skeptical about this myself so if you go a little bit further and you look into these social bleh statistics of this video and social blade is extremely accurate site you can cross-reference and check with this website on whatever video you want go into exile blade comm check the use of videos and youll see that the numbers line up except for diablo the immortal trailer has a total social blade rating so the amount of times people uploaded and downloaded it is six hundred and two thousand times now if you look at the actual ratings on the video if you plus the dislikes and the lights together it adds up to four hundred and eleven thousand youll be wondering whats going on there thats a total of a hundred and ninety one thousand votes that effectively have just disappeared and the spooky part is the votes that have disappeared a lot up votes and down votes its just down votes so 191000 down votes have just vanished into thin air i myself being a skeptic in most things i am extremely skeptical and id like to think that im pretty flocking woke but im not im just a sperg i would think that either its a glitch with the system or some guy on the reddit you know diablo red its pretty toxic right now you know theres various forums out there where everyones just writing about diablo someone would have made some sort of a bot which creates accounts and down votes and then they would have subtracted the body the botted down votes right thats what i want in my head thats how i rationalize it but theres plenty of people on the forums and things saying blizzard working together with youtube blizzard of working together with google but i mean my question is if they were really working together and they were colluding in to try and make their video look better why not give it a positive ratio you know why not why not like at least get it to 50% its i mean theyve moved it like a fraction of a percent in terms of the rating right its basically done nothing i mean 191000 download says lockdown voice right but at the end of the day its still an abysmal rating and i dont think its just the skeptical part of me wants to believe that blizzard isnt going that low but you guys can make up your minds for that im kind of like on the fence here and i would like to believe that bliss arent doing that or theres no shifty thing with youtube because i dont ive never seen it anywhere else like if it was happening in other places and there was other videos where people are missing with the thing wouldnt justin bieber do that wouldnt like some of the big music companies pay for better ratings on this song so they you know how come its just blizzard that have they got like secret connection so we dont know about i dont know i like to take the templo hat off and think of the most obvious and reasonable solution which would be a bug this is probably the last major critical point i have and its the fact that blizzard are not making the game entirely themselves or at least acquiring the company and then building the game in america its affect us theyre working in partnership with a company called nittis her based in china and they make mobile games and if you look up the knit knees games its monka flocking yes look at this crusaders of light on steam what is this game relevant to you similar games ive played bless online pretty much the worst game i think ive ever flocking played i i mean it was terrible that was that was a terrible mmo i think blizzard i think wow i think diablo i think i dont think bless online okay then you look at the reviews for this crusaders of light game 50% all the reviews were positive like theyre making games that are sub pi which is just if youre gonna make a mobile game blizzard at least make it yourself or acquire the company thats going to make it like buy that shed thats clearly thats just a way that its like oh this is a loophole we can pay people in china its a lot cheaper and it just it just comes off as cheap and tacky and it just feel like this is like its just adding salt to the wound lets bless online regardless lets try and talk about how you do it right lets talk how would you make a mobile game which lets be honest here its inevitable theyve already saturated we are a blizzard were gonna be making more mobile games for the other ips its happening right mobile gaming is huge and we cant stop it but theres a right way of doing it and a wrong way of doing it so lets talk about a great example of how to do it right blizzard get your pen and your paper out and take some notes so earlier on this year yet again at e3 both easter the guys would make elder scrolls and fallout and all that other stuff who cares about the other games announced a new mobile game elder scrolls blades okay you could tell by the audience reaction people werent you know super happy about it you know very very similar to how they reacted to you know g hablo immortal initially very similar the crowd you know they werent like shouting out and cheering and stuff okay very similar audience okay you dont remember there hasnt been a just a normal like elder scrolls game come out since skyrim in 2012 its its like the parallels are insane okay this is like its like a perfect script for blizzard to follow it okay people werent too happy but after they announced the mobile game they then put on a trailer for elder scrolls 6 the new game they didnt specify win then it was just like just a panning shot over some mountains and they said elder scrolls 6 it was literally just a teaser but that basically tells me they know ok our audience clearly is the high core gamers right they dont just want some mobile game but theyre up we do want to go into the mobile market we want to show them that we havent just throwing them to the side and just completely ditch them and were just trying to cash in and get money with a mobile game looks for that i mean the dispensed mobile is theyre doing it for the money right lets be real here if youre trying to make a game right and you want it to be the best it possibly can be and you let really love making games youre going to do it on the platform that is the best and in my opinion that is a pc and i think thats on average i think people would have that same opinion right if youre trying to make the best possible game possible right its not on a mobile phone regardless they knew people wouldnt be too satisfied with just a mobile game they dont want to have the franchise force on a mobile phone and then you and thats why they announced ill just go six so now if you go to the trailer for the blades oh would you look at that 17 k up folks 3.1 k downloads people werent even that mad i guarantee you if blizzard had followed the same script and they had just announced the stupid mobile game for the habló right announce a stupid game and then just had instead of mountains put some flocking dungeons in there and shed some dead guys maybe and then diablo for coming soon instantly the outrage that people feel engaging just trying to force these money flocking making machines down our throat its all instantly its like oh cool we get a mobile game to mess around with whatever blizzard can go into the mobile market but they havent forgotten about us and they are making what we actually want the best possible diablo game it can be on the platform that we wanted on computers or whatever they can port it to consoles i dont care you get the idea and everything would have just gone down so much better now im gonna say some wild shed which might trigger a few people and actually make some people mad well see i dont think mobile games are necessarily always a bad thing and i think there was a place for mobile gaming especially with in blizzards realm i think they can make mobile games for the other eye piece and they could honestly be a good thing and a positive thing a great example is a supplementary mobile game that blizzard made for warcraft we control your garrison followers from your phone so while youre taking a shed you could send you guys on missions right before you woke up or before youre gonna go to sleep you could send you guys to missions i used the app religiously throughout legion and it was extremely convenient in really handy app and it was just a all-around actually felt kind of good right now you can take this one step further right you can take this one step further and take it to another level they could say pay in the enttec or hire some guys from the antic i dont know how this works but effectively they can make battle pet go what should it be like pokemon go where you walk you go catch pets okay these pets would then be synced to the main game from the supplementary mobile game so you go around you captain you capture like a squirrel okay you now have the squirrel in your main game vice versa and you could obviously get the scroll in the game without having to play the mobile app at all it would just be a supplemental thing you can do while youre out then youre doing stuff yeah well youre outside i know its concern right its crazy right you could do the same thing with diablo you could do the same thing with diablo you could basically allow people to play the diablo game for example and they could find something within the game which would then supplement the main game so say youve got some achievements in the game you unlock some cosmetic wings on your main game vice versa you could even go as far to say that if they can balance it correctly you could even farm keystones or farm you know like i dont know theyre gonna have rift keys in diablo 4 find something in the mobile game which would then transfer over to the actual game supplementing it and i feel like you can do that for so many of the other ips and they can actually just be a genuinely fun and cool experience if youve made it this far under the video youre the flippin man or woman or whatever whatever you identify as i really do appreciate you whatever appreciate you spending it like what does this like 20 20 minutes long but its huge actually too long i had to cut down a little bit there are more points that i would like to articulate further but its kind of hard to do in youtube so i would suggest if you have any questions or if you want to know more check out my twitch stream because ill pretty much be up to answer anything you want there like literally you can ask me anything you know ill do my best to answer it i mean its gonna be pretty spooky but ill do my best to answer it also discord i havent asked me anything section that i also check regularly so you can check that shed up and theres also people whose shed post there and you can go and hate on di people and stuff its good well you can you know i hear the opposite and you can be you know one of the people i think they called shills now people are party gonna call me a shell just for defending mobile games a little bit appreciate you guys yo if youre commenting on the video regardless of what you say appreciate you but thank you for watching and i will see you next time whenever the hell it is maybe seven months from now maybe tomorrow peace

whats up everybody kinetic here today i need to read a bit i really dont like making videos like this its not my thing to be a drama channel but today has been one of the most shocking depressing disenchanting every other word you could align along that vein for me personally because while i i didnt have high expectations for blizzard and them announcing anything major for diablo ive been disappointed and let down too many times now from previous blizzcon waking up today and the very first thing that i see is that they have announced a mobile game a mobile only diablo game and were going to talk about that and specifically why people who dont understand this dont understand why theres so much drama so much hate so much anger they dont know what theyre talking about they dont play diablo they have been paying attention at all to whats been simmering now into a boiling point for all of these years and have no business telling us that we are ungrateful that were crybabies and stuff like that theres already at an article on mashable saying things like this and its just absurd now this might sound rich coming from me because i have promoted mobile games here on my channel and to me theres a very distinctive difference because its as ive said not that im hating on the fact that theyve got a mobile game but the fact that its the only thing that we have now as an update as fresh content if you will and im gonna talk about why ii you know even i suppose if there was another announcement its still pretty insulting so mobile games to me are fun bite-sized kind of fast food junk food that youre really not supposed to take seriously and isnt supposed to be a main part of your diet i consider mobile games to be low tier games made by low tier developers and theres nothing really wrong with that to me i enjoy and play a lot of mobile games for what theyre worth but blizzard is an established company for a very very long time and when they came out with diablo 3 and there was a lot of problems with diablo 3 and there was a lot of hate a lot of drama back then i defended the game quite a bit on the forums and social media and stuff talking about why i thought i could reason with blizzards decisions and why they did certain things like for example the real money trading auction house which was a big thing right people like wtf why is blue doing this oh they just trying to you know cash in on you know the the the market and stuff like that and i argued that i really believed that they were just trying to make a safer environment for trading like they said that they they were whether they were profiting off of that you know majorly i didnt think was the case but maybe they were making some profit but i believe their intentions to be true that they were trying to make things easier for them and for us in regards to trading but we all know how poorly that went down right so ive been defending the game ive defended blizzard not just because im a fanboy but just because i i tried to look at it from certain perspectives that were reasonable and logical but there is no reasonable view from looking at diablo immortal it is it is purely garbage like coming from and not even thats thats the thing – its not even coming from blizzard right this isnt even their game its their title right they given the rights to another company to make this game to all the people saying the diablo community is being unfair or disrespectful that were just being entitled and should be grateful learn the facts and get your thumb on the pulse of this community before you criticize us because this was a tipping point and its not our fault that you dont understand why weve been begging blizzard for years to do more for diablo a game franchise that they seem to barely care about while showering all of their other games with money and resources manpower to develop a near constant stream of updates and expansions look at overwatch look at world of warcraft or or even heroes of the storm for examples of games that just never like have a content drought seemingly at all you know ever you can expect a new expansion even when it does get kind of dry for example in world of warcraft you can expect an expansion to come now thats just not been the case for diablo especially diablo 3 year after year blizzcon after blizzcon weve gotten scraps or nothing at all and now they get on stage here in blizzcon 2018 and tell us that net es not blizzard is in charge of making this new game and on top of that its a mobile only game right the reaction from the crowd was totally justified at blizzcon when the guy asked is this mobile only are these mechanics these new gameplay features that theyre showing off with characters moba only and they said yes that they have no plans for pc and there was booing which is incredibly rare to hear a booing crowd is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any lands a moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys and that should tell you something that this isnt just crybaby entitlement and ungrateful this this is a seriously sour taste and everybodys mouth now to the point that it became booing you know bethesda did it right when they announced what was it fallout shelter they did it not on its own right they did it alongside another fallout title its like wow were getting this awesome epic new fallout game plus on the side weve got fallout shelters so its cool its kind of like a little companion you know for our main game they didnt announce that alone and they didnt announce it after a long drought of content but thats whats happening and thats the big difference here between these mobile games right high blues announced uh a diablo to remaster diablo for a diablo 3 expansion pack you know or something then it would have been less drama for sure less insulting and dont even get me started on the the comment by wyatt dont you guys have phones or whatever ii said you know to to the crowd in a very panicky way because thats that thats just as bad if not worse than boshy oaken is arent you thankful rhetoric right like its just man i lost a lot of respect for wyatt after that comment otherwise i think hes a good guy most the time and is doing pretty well with what he has left of a diablo team now were not grateful im sorry but we know what kind of game this is gonna be what kind of game diablo immortal is gonna be what kind of experience we can expect to have on this device which isnt gonna feel nearly as good as a pc or console game and worse i think we know what we can expect from monetization as well this will more than likely not just be a one-time pay and then you play it game like you normally get from diablo no it may very well be and well see just how bad the monetization is for this game how much they try and nickel and dime us for things like potions right or maybe extra uses out of the hegira cube or something like that right thats our thats our biggest fear there are good people at blizzard there are good people on the on the diablo team brandi campbell wyatt chang i still believe in these these people as representatives and as directors more or less of whats going on in diablo right now you know im not angry at these people or the regular grunts doing their job and the modeling and texturing at games or whatever no no its its not i dont think its their fault and i dont i dont its annoying but then i died i cant hate wyatt for being told yeah youre gonna get on stage and youre gonna hype people up for this mobile game whether he likes it or not no im im mad at whoever is calling the shots whoevers pulling it wyatt strings right but the people will maybe behind that person in the shadows who makes the decisions on what gets funding at blizzard and what doesnt based on market research you see what im saying cuz thats whats really going on here right and ive seen that for years and that was that was to me when i saw that perspective to go back to talking about perspectives and reasoning and stuff like that i really felt like that that was what was really going on here blizzard is just not convinced that diablo is as profitable as their other games like world of warcraft like hearthstone which god knows you know how much they make every day off of her stone packs and expansions you know for example but you know like the recent single-player star wars game that was scrapped you know diablo has seemingly been deemed not profitable enough and therefore not worthy of investment its not as flashy competitive has mobas and stuff like that you know to to be in the spotlight of an esports game or whatever which undeniably brings in huge amounts of money to companies when theyre able to pull off these events and get people will hyped up for stuff like that they cant do that with diablo and they know we wont tolerate lube boxes which lately has been getting some backlash thing thank god for that a bit late but finally there is backlash on loot boxes but a mobile game mobile games are still safe arent they like we can criticize them but were well were just elitists right were pc and console elitists were just picking on the little guy right i guess you know we can be discredited we can be dismissed you know when we criticize mobile games you know it meanwhile mobile games are more and more growing in popularity right and there is a sea of diablo clones on the mobile market you think activision and blizzard wants a piece of that pie better believe they do so theyre gonna make their own clone where actually theyre not gonna make it net ease like right lets clarify that lets pay attention to that because blizzard isnt doing it its neddys that theyve given permission and the rights to do this to make another clone one clone to rule them all with the name diablo in it all right its gonna be made by another company while activision blizzard gets a nice cut of the money from the transactions whatever thats gonna be i guess thats just just profitable enough looking right just enticing enough for for them to go ahead and do that all this and more i could say to explain the diablo drama were not entitled were flocking starved and have left in droves to other arpgs to try and find a replacement trying to find something that can help us recapture the feeling of the darkness and the edge and the fun and the story experience that a diablo game brings and some of them have been able to do that yeah some of these companies have been doing damn good at replicating that that feeling like path of exile and the upcoming for now korea and only lost ark right we start paying attention to these games start playing a little bit of grim done and what you know while we wait you know were thinking while we wait well play this and well wait for the next yellow game now we turn around it here another blizzcon what do we see blizzard on stage selling the corpse of the once great king of a rpgs a popular comet that keeps apparently getting deleted and is now spammed constantly on social media especially the diablo immortal trailers says quote no king rules forever my son a quote of course from the world of warcraft cinematic of the fall of arthas cole continues i enjoyed my 20-plus years playing blizzard games but it seems now is the time to admit the soul is gone end quote i guess thats the truth of it yeah once great king of a rpgs that reign is over i guess its been over for a long time some of us still lingering as fans wanted to believe that the king could come back reclaim the throne what do we find we find it which is reclaiming the lowest level of gaming mobile platform its pretty sad actually its really sad and thats the way it is i guess until they find a way to make diablo profitable enough i guess this is the way things are but i guess the silver lining in this is that it gives other companies a chance to to fill in that void that empty space of people that want to see more a rpg action we got path of exile obviously doing very good like i said over in korea lost ark is about to hole man they are about to kick off the most incredible a rpg inspired game isometric camera ive ever seen blizzard youve got a tough fight ahead of you if you do plan i know you got multiple projects for the diablo universe not just diablo immortal but you got ho you got a lot of fight on your hands and you got a lot of work now especially in trying to win us back and trying to help us forget the taste of this betrayal of announcing another outsource companys game with the diablo name on it i wont soon forget in fact i might remember it even more clearly or as clearly at least when that time comes when you finally do decide to make a new diablo game and presented to us well see how grateful we still are huh as if for this video i think ive said my part well see what the future holds but i am definitely not holding my breath for whats to come for the diablo universe thats gonna do it for this video thats all ive got to say for now i still love a rpgs but man does this hurt i still really like blizzard what they do most of the time but and does this hurt well see maybe next blizzcon huh i wont be holding my breath but well see what the future holds let me know what you guys think down in the comments section click the like button might just reach more likes here on this video then diablo mortal reveal trailer ill see you guys around make sure you subscribe more content is on the way thanks again for watching this is kinetic ill see you next time hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke [applause]

[..] oh good afternoon everybody now last night that was really tough on diablo immortal any my eyes rightly so but im a really critical person thats my thing thats my stick im sure the rest of the down-low community however have been very lenient with it oh my god hi everybody eats as here from hell vs babyface now last night i brought you a video about my personal reaction to the diablo immortal announcement on mobile you got phone i thought it was terrible in short im paraphrasing her video but go check it out i thought it was terrible i thought its laughable i honest to god thought its a joke when he first said it on screen i thought oh hes kidding now hes gonna do the proper reveal whatever it may be and lets just say it was met by the community with well i [laughter] think the skit at the beginning of the video just showed everything the two hundred thousand down votes to the what six thousand up votes thats like a 97% disapproval rating people do not like now since then and the purpose of this video is theres been more things which have come out which have been sent to community even further and im gonna go through them bit by bit now first of all after the opening ceremony to the olympic blizzcon 2018 they had a whats next for diablo where all they spoke about was diablo immortal ive now watched that this morning completely and ive gone through all the q&a and lets just say the q&a was rough really really rough now when they would came up on stage they gave this field there was wyatt cheng he had a couple of developers with him they had their speaker you know filled to go through not a single sound from the audience none no reaction to anything no reaction to their jokes their silliness their banter nothing the crowd went mild there was just they just did not they did not look like they care they i think were waiting for what was going to be the star of the show the qa and when the qa arrived holi did it go completely off here now you may have seen and we will see in a second two of the big questions and the response more importantly by blizzard on this and this is what i want to talk about because there have been a few people whove been coming out defending blizzard about diablo immortals saying its not its not the developers fold its not the developers fault they just told to do it theyre just doing their jobs first and foremost i havent seen a single person make a personal attack not one i am not seeing anybody having personal attacks against wyatt chang at all peoples anger is directed at the correct source in my opinion which is the nature of the game a mobile regressive diablo beloved franchise game nobodys making personal attacks but while were on the subject of this and defending blizzard absolutely not these people know what theyre doing these people are not innocent princesses theyre not small forms which have just come out of their mothers value and are taking their first tentative steps in life what is this what is this online world i seen yeah these are grown men and women that know exactly what theyre doing they are well paid for it and if theyre sent out to face the lions they are doing their job this is why we have customer service in the world because thats what their pay to do its their job you dont phone up a complaints division of a company and the person on the other end of line says hey look its not me i i didnt make this product dont have a go at me i didnt do this its the its the higher-ups in the company that wont take your call but dont have a go at me thats their job thats what theyre paid for it comes with the praise and it comes with the criticism and if you take the praise you have to take the criticism so there is no defense here you lie down with dogs you get fleas and thats as simple as that so you want to defend this nonsense you defend this nonsense i dont care if these are wonderful lovely people nobody nobody is having a go at that peoples anger is very specific its the nature of the product so lets now get on to the comedy aspect which was the q&a and it started off hard because i think the diablo 2 community were expecting two announcements or hoping there be two announcements possibly a diablo 2 remake possibly but i think most of them from the diablo community people that ive been speaking to were expecting druids to be announced for diablo 3 so the first question was where the druids well here are the druids thats which there was no response there was no answer it doesnt look like theyre being worked on by the sounds of what was going on on stage well its about a vote you know i would vote for dreads i play druid in wow well i i you know i would prefer a witch doctor it doesnt even look like jurors in development people so im really sorry if thats your thing next question whens this going to be ready dont know itll be ready when its ready and before that guy left a microphone he managed to quickly get in and go on a typical blizzard response so the announcing diablo mortal the great new mobile phone progressive game and no no no no no no time at all thats god knows and then a really big question came along how is the production of diablo immortal affecting other diablo projects which are being worked upon great question and why it chang said no response were working on other stuff but no response there was nothing that they said there were they were not satisfying the answers and people were getting more and more agitated and then this question happened this guy steps up on stage and says a perfectly legitimate question and just listen to the response and the response is another reason why i have goose egg goose egg sympathy for the development team right here so lets just listen to what he says ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc [music] did you guys not have fun yeah you guys did they just get woke bliss did you just get woke again you does not have phones you not have phone you have phone you have phone wow wow and that is why you have zero zero sympathy for the development team just the absolutely oblivious response to that question do you not have a phone this may want this mase look like the future of money to companies but is this the future of gaming no no a five and a half inch screen where youre trying to turn and twiddle and no this right here in front of me this pc layout this is in some way or form always gonna have a massive massive form when it comes to gaming people want to be sat down relaxed they want to have great functionality tools like keyboards and mouse and joy pads for some people as well people dont want to be squinting squinting on a five and a half inch screen pushing stuff with finicky controls with their flock pingas excuse my french and so when the person asks a perfectly legitimate question in a very passive manner he was he was on his back with his belly exposed with his paws in the air saying oh my body languages is is as submissive as theyre gonna come and your responses are you got found absolutely no sympathy whatsoever and that is the attitude of blizzard right there in a nutshell and so after this which got my ira oh did it get my arab somebody step forward some say his name is actually duke nukem because this guy has got balls of steel just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke mic drop [music] is this an out of season april fools joke and you know why he asked that question because it sounds like one hes he yeah is he being sarcastic yeah hes he being condescending yeah but you know what hes also being very truthful and hes saying what a lot of people are very likely thinking and you can tell that from the response that he got from the actual audience itself when he said that they is stunned silence because people are absolutely gobsmacked by what theyre seeing with this announcement this is only the future of gaming to companies that want to make a ton of money in microtransactions this isnt the future of gaming when it comes to a true gamer not at all absolute nonsense and so what they said was perfectly perfectly legitimate and if that takes the people on stage off guard again i got no sympathy if youre coming out with a project like this then you better be prepared if you came out on stage expecting everybody and this is the problem with the circle-jerk which goes on in blizzard and the community if youre expecting that because its blizzcon everybody is gonna cheer and love you and everythings gonna be roses and deuces and aces and all that – as if you come out with a product like this that takes a beloved franchise and essentially craps all over it so you can make a quick buck and well get to that very soon indeed again you have to accept the consequences now when it came to other questions just nothing will it will it be hard chord mode no will there be other difficulties extreme mode all these insane mode whatever its called in diablo we dont know why dont they know because mobile gaming isnt set up for this kind of player this isnt why people game thats why they need the functionality of their keyboards in their mice and their tools and their pads and stuff like that because things like this arent conducive the reason why they said theres probably no hardcore mode what if you get a disconnection on your phone and you lose your character you know its way more easy way way way more easy that youre gonna get disconnected on a mobile device than you are at home with a wide connection way more the only reason youre gonna get disconnected with a wire connection is if something intrinsically goes wrong at the backend of whichever your isp is but with this black spots you know dips all over the place so mobile gaming isnt the future because it has too many limitations its a limitation on what modes you can play theres limitations what difficulties that you can play and one question which was not asked whether it is filtered i dont know but it certainly wasnt addressed was what is the pay model of this game going to be and before anyone of you think well they probably havent got around to think about that as know i speak to a lot of game developers and there are a lot which ive spoken to who are pretty deal it disillusioned with the industry and one thing that i hear off them is whenever it comes to creating a new game and youre sat down and youre just ready for the first picture of ideas going back and forth pretty much the first question which ever gets asked now in todays current genre of gaming is how do we monetize this product and i very much doubt that diablo immortal is any different i think that was one of the first questions if not the first question that was asked when it came to the concept and a construction of this game on mobile how do we monetize so theyve got pretty much an idea about what theyre gonna do in terms of microtransactions and monetary things whether or not they switch things up based off feedback i dont know but lets just say the qa was a complete and utter disaster for them now lets just look at some gameplay from diablo immortal and im picking out something very specific here this is the barbarian so here they go the barbarian going in do look at this look at this look at that okay now lets just jump to something else this is a game called endless gods it says endless of the gods endless gods by netties thats the same company thats making the news and lets just have a look at some of the footage from this game shall we each cut oh oh oh oh oh wait that that looked that looked identical to the barbarian huh isnt that weird now let me just shift the image here lets just have a look at this sir you i outlay here on the right hand side of this screen here we go sever have a look at that now lets bring back the the diablo video and lets just jump to the oh oh lets just jump to the oh wait a minute this is the exact same ui as well so the same company thats making diablo immortal that made endless gods is using the same animations is using the same layout this is a reskin of an existing mobile game by netties now this was approached wyatt chang was approached by ign reputable ign im sorry this video shouldnt have jokes in it he they were they approached and they asked him because i think they wanted to address this saying that chang responded to claims that diablo immortal may be a reskin by saying the following weve been working with netties games from the beginning as a partnership to create everything in diablo immortal ok we have artists on our side they have artists on their side and we work together as a team as a partnership to create everything about diablo immortal the environments the characters the skills the story well thats not what it looks like here i mean sure youve got artists which are gonna make it look like a diablo game you have story board its who are gonna create the cutscenes for a diablo story and you have the environment teams to create your environments but the skills looked identical the playstyle looks identical theyre taking an identical model for an existing game to make your new and progressive and the future of gaming is mobile diablo immortal what an absolute crock sh1te and then folks then comes the final thing you see blizzard throughout the whole course of blizzcon theyve said how much they love the fans how much theyre listening to the fans this already shows a complete lack of listening understanding of a community is this a remake of diablo 2 to bring it into the modern age a beloved beloved game diablo 2 when i was younger diablo 2 when you said those words it was as if you were saying the mecca of gaming that is how revered diablo 2 is you hear these stories about how items would sell on ebay and stuff from diablo 2 for ridiculous money because of how much they were sought after and how beloved the game was yeah all these amazing things so you have people hoping maybe that theyre do that thats what the community was hoping no okay all right fair enough youve got other things maybe youre you are looking to the future and not into the past maybe diablo 2 is habits day then maybe you are looking forward so what about the current product at least add druids bringing druids bringing a new class to diablo 3 no no no no there this is what the community has been asking for wanting blizzard arent listening theyre not listening because they they dont care they have their agenda its their agenda its the beat of their drum that they go towards but heres the coup de gras blizzard listen to your feedback so much they respect your feedback so much theyre in the comment section for the diablo immortal reveal video the one that has six thousand likes and two hundred thousand dislikes theyve been removed critical comments from the chat and im not talking people go ah dont grow yourself im talking about legitimate concerns that people have legitimate disappointments that people have any critical comment that gets up voted is pulled down nyx iam had a just a regular post weve had some good news about wow weve had some good news about hearthstone some good news about heroes of the storm i have never heard that game no this is really disappointing this leaves a bad taste in the mouth mobile isnt the future of game legitimate concerns comment gone loads of comments just getting deleted deleted deleted if they repost them deleted if they somebody else repost them deleted that is how much they care about your feedback that is how much they are listening to your feedback they are deleting your comments and your criticisms so diablo immortal isnt just a joke it isnt just a disappointment it is such an egregious reskin phony of a game that is designed for nothing more than to exploit a franchises great name and to exploit a community that is surrounding that because they think hey if we stick diabolo on a mobile device then it will take the demote diablo community to that mobile device and to those microtransactions theres a an old saying and im an old guy theres an old saying that i want to leave this video with you can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink and the diablo 2 community they dont want to drink anything at all so hope you enjoyed the video if you did do get a thumbs up and also subscribe to the channel follow me on social media and twitter for live streaming links there in the description box down below and ill be back with some more stuff very soon you take care bye for now

// how to play big science

[..] blizzcon 2018 what an emotional rollercoaster that was now since i asked the question a lot of people have been asking me to kind of put together my thoughts on blizzcon 2018 and thats kind of exactly what i aim to do in this video so without further ado lets get into it hi lord fluffy face of diablo 3 is ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys so first and foremost i kind of want to get some context to the question itself so for you guys that dont know me im lord fluffy im a diablo 3 streamer ive been streaming diablo almost exclusively since season 3 season 4 ive been playing diablo 3 since vanilla without really ever taking a break i have countless hours sunk into diablo i dont even want to look at the number and ever since the release of the necromancer pack i have more or less been one of the top diablo streamers for quite some time now i actually had pretty low expectations going into blizzcon for the diablo franchise pretty much since season 12 we havent been seeing really any diablo content the most notable of those changes however has been the addition of themed seasons which for you guys dont know they basically just add a seasonal theme its been double goblins double bounty mattes nothing super innovative or game-changing pretty low-level changes that pretty much already existed in the game it didnt require any changes and i did more or less hype us up you know kind of right before the round three of blizzcon tickets went on sale brainy said this wed also like to let you know that the forge is here at wizard a burning hot and we have multiple diablo projects in the works some of them are going to take longer than others but we may have some things to show you later this year so of course everyone everyone thought that that was going to be a table 4 announcement theres no one i met at blizzcon back when that announcement was made that expected anything less than diablo 4 but of course as a lot of you guys know a couple weeks ago a blizzcon did kind of lower expectations and came out and said we know many of you are hoping for and good things come to those who wait but evil things take often longer so theyre basically in a nutshell telling us like theres no chance youre getting the elbow 4 so if you guys you know watch the podcast at all going into it i didnt really have the highest of expectations for the diablo franchise obviously a lot of people were hoping for diablo 2 remastered and i thought that that was in the realm of possibility but of course the one thing that didnt change after they lowered our expectations was the fact that diablo which we didnt know is the apple immortal yet diablo was following the opening ceremony and historically that has always meant that that game is getting the biggest announcement of the year period historically thats been 100 percent accurate every time so of course everyone still had really really high hopes theyre hoping for you know dt remastered hoping for diablo 3 content maybe an expansion or a character pack and honestly the community would joke about you know diablo pr or diablo mobile but im not sure that anyone actually expected that to be the case so you know fast forward its blizzcon day one we finally get inside drop a deuce key another diablo streamer actually saved the seats towards the front so we had you know really good spot but you know going into the day i was a little bit sour already you know people were tweeting at me like hey fluff what time are you gonna stream at blizzcon and im just kind of like what are you talking about and i guess that they had invited todds and tons of streamers to stream either you know diablo on switch or diablo mortal and of course i hadnt received any invites whatsoever so i was a little sour already because you know ive been streaming this game for a really long time im making guides for a really long time i have a pretty decent amount of reach for diablo and to not really get an invite its kind of like a really feels bad moment especially considering they invited a lot of streamers that really have nothing to do with diablo at all to streaming the game so i was already feeling kind of salty walking in but i still had like really really high hopes so now its really excited about you know the future of diablo and what we could expect because again most of us are expecting a really big announcement cuz it is the first game after the opening ceremony so were kind of hyped up were sitting there the classic game team comes out and so this would be the team that youre expecting the diablo 2 remastered announcement to come from and he was so vague leading up to the trailer i am honored to present the return of another titan be able to write we never paid any heat so immediately when i see this im not a huge blizzard fanboy i really dont play any game besides diablo and i see this and im like i dont really know whats going on here like what is that like im thinking the banners that they have in diablo like i thats the first thing that came to my head and then the voice kicks on right the voice actor from diablo 2 the dude in the prison cell so im like oh flock here we go boys d2 remastered and then it keeps going right and you see like the orc and the dude fighting and then im like wait a minute im like is that a paladin whats going on why would orcs be in diablo remastered and then this dude pops up obviously thats for crafts and im like man damn it so immediately im thinking okay theyre not going to master two games in one year so – yellow – remastered its absolutely out of the window but at the same time im like holy shed like theyre still gonna be a huge announcement coming for diablo and really the only thing thats left is diablo 3 and honestly as of diablo 3 player that was the one thing i wanted more than anything like yeah before is a certainty its gonna happen it doesnt really matter when for me its just its so far down the road that i cant even like think about it diablo 2 remastered itd have been really cool but honestly the game i play almost every day is diablo 3 so the content i want the most is diablo 3 and so im like wow we might actually get a full-fledged diablo 3 expansion i cant believe it im actually even more hyped after seeing the warcraft 3 reforged than i was before so then its diablos moment right wyatt chang comes up on stage and honestly before blizzcon i mean i had really no idea that wyatt chang even still worked for diablo or blizzard cuz honestly i havent seen wyatt chang since like quinn did an interview with him like two three years ago out of blues con i havent seen him since so im like okay hes been working on something juicy so he comes on and this is kind of all of us reacting to what happens next love so im psyched right hes like we love diablo im like cuz i lo diablo right but im like you know im all smiles right because im like because im honestly thinking diablo 3 expansion this has to be big right there i mean do ski already knows duke hes like a flocking mobile dudes and like it felt so unreal right cuz this is not what anyone wanted at all this i was totally and completely blindsided by this we would joke about a diablo br we would joke about diablo mobile no one expected it like no one wanted it so i was just like i mean you can see like the definition we would use the places a platform for a news tiamo nothing just defeated thats a defeated man that is a defeated man right there the game ive been playing since vanilla the game ive been playing for like the last year without any changes besides like tiny little seasonal themes is getting nothing were getting a mobile game that no one really wanted absolutely no one asked for and so like the things that are going through my head is just like as a diablo streamer like what do i do like are we still gonna play rat runs for another year or more because this mobile game was obviously in very early stages of development so thats not gonna be ready for at least a year or more unless this you know chinese company is like amazing at pushing out code and so am i what do we do now like whats there to look forward to now so im super livid like i am just like im almost trembling and people are always like oh man you look like youre about ready to cry in the video honestly im like trembling from rage like i am just so pissed off i didnt want to just immediately jump on this all trying to be like you know flock you guys flock your stupid game and i wanted to be open-minded because im not im not a journalist by any means im a diablo streamer im a diablo content creator but i wanted to keep an open mind for the people that might still be interested in this game so then they get to the diablo q&a right and i really didnt even have an idea of what i wanted to ask i just knew i wanted to be up there and i wanted to ask him something and i wanted to ask him something that would kind of portray how the pc people felt basically everyone at blizzcon felt about this game but even in my own head im thinking like should i say something just just like completely rude should i be a dick you know im sure the exact same thing that the red shirt guy was thinking in his head should i stick to the question that i told brandi i was gonna ask or should i completely go off the road and really tell him how i feel but again you know the interest of being open minded and you know not burning my bridges kind of really took over and you know i ended up sticking to the question i originally wanted to ask and all my question was you know obviously i of diablo on pc diablo is meant for pc and thats just plain and simple its always been on pc to me its not really meant for other platforms i dont like diablo on console im not excited about diablo on switch at all i played it while i was there and i was like grossed but if thats your thing im not sh1tting on it i just i really wanted to be able to play a new diablo game on the platform that i wanted to play it on of course i was curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for and so i yeah first i asked i see i didnt ask first i said okay i see a lot of elements that weve been begging for in diablo 3 and thats totally true you know something like ground effects like so very much so in the demo like when a mob was casting something that you shouldnt be in you would get kind of a notification on the ground of hey like dont stand in this and thats something that you know people have been really wanting in diablo 3 theres a lot of mechanics in diablo 3 that theres really no way to avoid them or no real way to know that theyre coming and that it feels bad it plays bad its bad design and so thats thats one of the things i was talking about the other thing i was talking about is like more involved skill mechanics so like in a demo you know you would cast meteor and it would bring up first it would bring up your aoe radius how far away you could cast meteor and then within that you would have like a smaller circle to kind of pick exactly where you wanted that meteor to fall and i think something like that in diablo would be amazing so imagine if you will not only you have to put like your set together your build together min max your stats get augmented and stuff like that be actually the aim your skills or you have to aim some skills but not all of them this is just a bit more skill based i felt it felt a lot more like like a moba game or you really have to like time your skills to get like maximum effectiveness out of them and stuff like that and that was something that i thought would be really cool and you see a lot of that from like lost ark lineage eternal you see like theres this new like swipe mechanic were like you swipe your mouse and like like a firewall will pop up where you swiped and just like really cool skill features like that and thats what i meant when i first said what i said then i go on and again my voice is kind of trembling and its not cuz im nervous because i dont have a problem talking in front of people but like i was so upset i was so upset im so mad that was really like just doing it good cuz in my head im like like i want to say a lot worse but im not gonna is there any plans and i didnt really have to add the forever that was kind of like my attempt i guess at a jab its like strictly mobile forever i dont want to be a total dick but i wanted to absolutely portray how disappointed i was and how disappointed i think i felt everyone was and you guys have to keep in mind when i went out there to ask my question i didnt think it would get the reaction that it did i didnt think that people would actually boo i didnt expect that whatsoever so i didnt go up there with the intention or the negative intention of causing controversy or any kind of uproar i just wanted to ask a question now generally curious about because i still and i know like emulators exist but its not like a true official experience so i was really generally curious if this would ever be brought to pc and i got a very official kind of way because you know its just a platform i want to play it on its a platform to everyone at blizzcon wanted to play on so i mean the question came from a good place and i tried to be as non negative as i could possibly be we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc so you know the boo happened which i didnt really expect and im kind of glad they didnt clip the camera back to me because like i was you know you look at my face strictly mobile forever im not a happy dude its kind of find zookas zanjeer a former diablo streamer he was kind of like in the control center and like so there had a camera pointing at me they had a camera point at why it changed so he could see both feeds and he he was like you just looked pissed off um and in his head hes like fluff dont ask the question dont do it so im you know im glad they didnt point it back to me because i didnt look super super happy are there any yeah the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah so you guys see im walking away like i didnt even like stick around i just walked away i was like whatever man cool but i in no way triggered then to say what they said like that its tough to watch probably not the best reaction i dont know he like so a lot of people that saw this video were like oh my god hes talking to me right a lot of people made the reference to like imagine if like osman gold a wow player went up and asked a wow question and like they told him like cant you run this game or something on your machine and peopled be like people go crazy but why i wasnt talking to me like he was addressing the people that were booing like very very generalized statement the problem is that this didnt come off very well it wasnt well-received and of course it has become a meme on the internet now of course as you guys saw after the announcement was made it was very quiet like it was dead quiet theres no like whoo you know like people excited theres really not a lot theres a lot of stirring but not like in a positive im so excited kind of way more of like a everyones kind of like uneasy right and of course the infamous red shirt guy goes up there and he kind of just says exactly whats on his mind hey wondering is this an out of season april fools joke thats so hard to watch it makes me so uncomfortable but its not necessarily an unfair question thats certainly something i struggled with you know when i was in line so they would what happened was that someone would ask you what your question is they would do their best to answer it or if they didnt like it theyd make you step out of line so he obviously didnt tell them that was the question that he was going to ask and i did tell brandi whos on my side of the stadium i told her like i was gonna ask if its gonna be multi-platform and brandi was like im pretty sure its gonna be mobile only but if you want to ask your question anyways or if you want to let my answer shape what youre gonna ask go right ahead unless you didnt say get out of line get take out of here fluff and im actually kind of surprised because a lot of you guys might not know my channel or follow my stream but im not necessarily known for withholding my opinion and im not necessarily known for candy coding things so i was actually somewhat genuinely surprised that they didnt pull me out of line but at the same time is you know very happy they didnt red shirt guy asked his question and at this point like im already kind of leaving but i heard him say it and i heard the crowds reaction and its like oh man like what a disaster what a total disaster and so of course immediately after this you know people were going crazy on twitter people were going crazy on reddit people are going crazy on youtube now of course i dont have to tell you guys you know those of you who are home during this whole thing you know a lot of streamers were you know in uproar and obviously youtube was an uproar the amount of dislikes this thing has is absolutely insane i think i saw a post that said something where around 600000 dislikes were in total theyre also deleting negative comments those of you that stream or have been on twitch.tv knows that deleting or banning people it really only kind of empowers them or infuriates them even more so of course people are going to come back and continue to down vote maybe even make alternate accounts continued it down but post negative comments keep coming back to find new ways of posting negative comments vpn to post negative comments so its a really really poor business yeah people are gonna download it like theres nothing you can do about it man like just let it go now one of the things that we talked about a lot the day that it happened was had they released something else alongside diablo immortal do you think it wouldve been better received and the results seemed to be kind of overwhelmingly yes most people tend to think that if they said okay dt remastered plus weve got this new thing on the side you know to do alongside dt remastered or imagine they had diablo 3 content like a character pack or an exfoliation and then theyre like hey on the side weve got diablo immortal a new mobile game people would have been infinitely more receptive but the fact of the matter is this is all we got this is all we got and this is what no one wanted obviously the communitys gonna be super super upset and they were man and i had never been to a blues calm before so i didnt really know that like booing like just doesnt ever happen i had a blizzcon which is kind of crazy to me and the thing that this confuses the crap out of me is like diablo mortal is nowhere close to being done so why even announce it why not rearrange the schedule right like you dont have to keep diablo in the top spot actually if you made your announcement said hey you know pump the brakes on your expectations for diablo this year why wouldnt you just rearrange schedule to like reflect that why would you keep diablo in that top spot only to release a mobile game thats not even gonna be ready for a long time to count now on another like this was particularly hard to watch because like wyatt chang is a particularly nice guy he actually personally reached out to me before blizzcon made sure i was invited to like the community event that happens the night before for content creators when i was way to tell me he was a big fan of the podcast that we do big fan of the stream and throughout blizzcon i was given numerous opportunities to sit down and talk with wyatt chang so i just i mean i cant help feel bad for him because like one hes a super super nice guy and two i dont really know that you know all this decision-making and making the diablo immortal announcement at blizzcon we dont even know that that was really up to him you know what i mean so its like if it was like i guess he kind of deserves the backlash that he got ish but if its not it like it kind of sucks right now all that being said i dont i dont really want to cover my thoughts on double mortal in this video i actually played diablo immortal i would guess more than anyone probably did at blizzcon i went to deline like a bazillion times i played through every character class four or five times full clears you know taking as much time as i possibly could on each character and then even going further to try to like grind gear and find bugs and you know i was just often found myself just you know standing there for like thirty minutes and no one else came to the line because i really wanted to you know give it a fair chance and really cover it for you guys so i plan on doing that in a future video and really going in-depth into like my thoughts on the game how it played and even some insider information that i might have been able to have access to from either playing it for a really long time and of course having conversations with people that work at blizzard so were gonna do that in a future date i also actually had the opportunity to sit down with redshirt guy himself on stream yesterday and of course well be uploading that video as well currently its muted for some reason im in talks with twitch to try to get unmuted so that i can pull it down and put it up on youtube for you guys but will upload that as soon as we can i just wanted to kind of express and share with you guys you know what was going through my head what was the feel at the blizzcon itself how are people reacting and of course im gonna give a full review on diablo immortal in a upcoming video that will be posted to my channel as soon as possible of course if you guys want to see more head on over to my twitch channel its twitch tv lord underscore fluffy you know subscribe on youtube we do a podcast every tuesday at diablo a podcast every tuesday 10:00 p.m. eastern standard time so if you guys want to see more diablo content stick around its coming theres always guys like subscribe come over to twitch ask your questions i love you guys pizza

[..] so with this diablo immortal backlash and full effect and blizzard going into full-on damage control mode deleting comments and dislikes there are many people from gaming journalists to solo corporate shills that are sucking on the teats of these shady companies calling gamers entitled a lot of this is coming from these interactions at the q & a of diablo immortal take a look for a quick context i was curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet to just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke now what is being said is that these guys represent the vast majority of gamers that gamers are just entitled little basement-dwelling trolls who dont like anything unless its exactly what they want and throw hissy fits when they dont get it and i just want to put that shed to bed right now no we absolutely are not entitled all you gaming journalists and im using quotations because these so-called game journalists arent even gamers you all are annoying you dont even play games you just like to complain about bs like mario culturally appropriating mexican clothing or lara croft invading a foreign country as a white colonists spreading death and murdering brown people youre all just boring one-dimensional blue haired soy boys that cant enjoy anything and all of you need to leave you arent gamers you dont speak for gamers your ideas and opinions are regressive to the gaming industry because you want to you you want to know what is a dumb opinion calling millions upon millions of people entitled or trolls just because theyre sharing their opinion on a beloved franchise like this guy did here with diablo want to know something else gaming is an expensive hobby and not everyone has thousands of dollars to spend some people can only buy a couple games a year games are $60 a flocking pop we pay for these games we pay for these services from these developers from these companies and i support the devs they work harder than most people in the entertainment industry but what developers and these companies and most importantly these dumb fake gaming journalists fail to understand is that we are keeping your lights on we are the reason that your games are successful we are the reason that games like diablo are popular and beloved we are the reason for everything you have and that is because you provided us with a product that was up to our standards and that we enjoyed imagine for a second that nintendo comes out with a trailer for the highly anticipated metroid prime 4 and says its only for ios or android its a mobile game only and its never coming to the switch the backlash that would receive would be astronomical from the pissed-off fanbase and youre gonna sit there and tell me and look at me square in the face and tell me im entitled if i get pissed the flock off that this that metroid prime for would go mobile youve got to be flocking kidding me youre out of your mind of course devs can create whatever in the hell they want but understand that you have a fanbase of dedicated players who are on one dedicated platform and they have been there for years decades even supporting whatever you have created and they expect a certain quality and standard and consistency of that product if you stray away from that be prepared for at the very least to have some opinions and criticisms thrown your way these games arent free why are you acting like these games dont cost money why do you act like we all dont have lives we need time for bills we need pay for and families we need to feed we dont want to pay for a shed product or a product we dont want or want to spend hours on for example if i go to a supermarket that ive been ordering white bread from for years and they all of a sudden get rid of white bread forever and im like is this a joke wheres the white bread and they go well hey we have some pumpernickel dont you have a mouth who cares if its not what youve been ordering for years im going to complain about that and if they wont give me what i expect im taking my business elsewhere thats what we did with star wars battlefront – thats what we did with battlefield 5 thats what we are doing with diablo immortal and this is what were going to keep doing for the rest of time until you developers and companies understand and realize that you forgot who your real bosses are its not your managers your share hold or whoever has stock in your company or whoever your investors are its the consumer we the consumer pay your salary we pay for your houses we pay for your cars your food your everything you are nothing without us your gains are nothing without us what the flock is a game without the gamer the only thing you all should be afraid of is us and it sucks that there is still a ton of gamers who dont realize how much power they have with their wallets we can shut you down we are your biggest fear and we are what keeps you up at night in a cold sweat because you know deep down and im talking to you ea activision all you corporate suits all the way up to at the top deep down you know that if we dont keep coming back with an open wallet youre out of a job so like any other form of entertainment we will keep doing what we are doing keeping you guys in check we are getting more and more woke we arent children anymore we are not going to fall for your shed anymore like pride an accomplishment or player choice we are done with your bs we are gamers we dont want games that are made with greedy intentions we want to play games that are made with passion with dedication love and attention and i know there are still companies and developers out there who strive to prove this to us every day that they are still out there and they have a passion to show us a story to tell or a creation for us to enjoy gangs like a hat in time god of war spiderman breath of the wild red dead to horizon zero dawn so much more these games every single one of them proved to us all the time that there is still developers out there who are true gamers true gamers who want to create and put fun over the money put fun over microtransactions loot boxes and other bs and these games and these developers efforts to bring them to life will continuously be commended and games that are putting great first will continue to be condemned i never want to hear that we are entitled ever again not from a fake journalist not from a fake gaming journalist not from a corporate suit because we are far from entitled it is you in fact who are entitled you all believe youre so entitled to our hard-earned money that you think you can do whatever you want implement whatever kind of money grubbing skiing in your games that you want that you can implement whatever shady tactics to get into our wallets and im gonna let you in on a little secret its not going to work for much longer every day we are pushing against all this crap more and more we want to see more effort in these games i believe very firmly that creativity fun and honesty will prevail games made with love and passion before greed will be the norm i believe were almost there we are standing up to you so please get back in line get back to your desk scrap whatever dumbass idea you had to come up with a way to squeeze us for every dollar we have because its not gonna work anymore we are done we are fed up we are the gamers and we are your final boss thank you for watching peace out

[..] i know some people dont care they dont understand diablo some people might so diablo 3 came out in 2012 they created the auction house where you when you found items you could sell them and stuff like that huge backlash from the diablo fans although i liked it because im kind of like im a douche bag i enjoyed selling stuff to make money i was making money off the habla but i do love books you could sell it for real money yeah so in diablo 3 launched in 2012 for the first eight months they had a real money auction house wow if you found an item that was rare you could sell it i sold one i sold the hacks i found for 150 bucks it was all real money right to your bank account and those are the orange items right yeah they were like the the legendary orange item its like orange gold green when set items yeah so like all that shed right i made i made a hundreds of dollars on the game it was crazy i got flocking nuts i originally went in thinking i cant wait to play diablo its gonna be like diablo 2 or whatever and but instead i found what was fun was doing that but so didnt a lot of other people cuz everyone was using the auction house rather than searching for gear like the game is about grinding for gear to find just farming shed yeah youre just flockin farming to sell it youre not even label people had jobs people hired people to farm for them oh yeah i did the asian bots were insane at that so you know so eight months to a year later they get rid of the auction house and everyone loves it you know theyre like happy right because theyre like now its a real game again and its weird because i was upset at the time but then i fell in love with the game as for a game again i reckon now i love i have a character i worked very hard on whatever and its obviously coming to the end its been – since 2012 everybodys waiting for them to announce diablo 4 or to announce a new character – reaper of souls maybe while we wait for diablo 4 and da-da-da-da-da and everyones joking the because blizzard doesnt usually give the habló a whole lot of love anymore and blizzards like ts and everybody like oh theres gonna be were gonna be doing some big diablo shed its gonna be nuts get out here whatever the flock and people like oh my god theyre gonna announce the habló for you know you know theyre gonna announce something big something huge gonna happen and the everybody was joking like what if they imagine if it was like just a flocking they announced a phone app or something and it was all microtransactions and everyones like oh my god dude that would be flocking a nightmare so all these hardcore flocking diablo fans are out out there and what did they do they announced an app game that looks like diablo 3 but worse on a phone the flocking crowd after they announced this the crowd went dead silent the whole like these are diablo fans right so this is like the dorkiest of the dorky right because while fans theres a lot of new wow players right theres a lot of wow players that started to know four or five and stuff like that but diablo dates theres a lot of a lot of the audience dates back to the 90s so these people are like hardcore pc gamer type people what i know weve been over this the diablo sales a diablo outsold word at world of warcraft then this was the game okay okay thats not what im saying im trying to say to you is like like 70% of the world world of warcraft online people now are like people that jumped on around the oh four zero fives but but diablo like trendy was yeah right a core of diablos players are still those people from the 90s its its just a huge diablo 2 is so big so when they announced this these people have like the thunder sticks you know like at the beginning of a star wars rally or something like that yeah these people got thunder sticks and theyre like and everything like the world of diablo is about to get even bigger and people and flocking they announced this as an app and the whole just place just dies and people just like what the video for the game on youtube has two hundred and seventy two thousand dislikes and seven thousand likes and and blizzard keeps taking down and re uploading the video to try to get rid of the dislikes see this is this is what these companies dont get is that we get when you do a money grab we understand that when id um yeah its really its like they think well youre theres stupid also i was looking at the forms again today yeah and multiple people are reporting that they like have like literally sat there and watched as these videos go on youtube go from 300000 dislikes to 200000 dislikes like that theyre getting rid of dislikes oh my god yeah if you have been in with youtube you can complain about spam botting and if they do that they could get them removed which is see this is why i like the video game community because they will flocking lash back at you look what flocking liked rock arts is doing right now after they flocked in star wars battlefront yeah nobody wants to touch touch this shed with a ten-foot pole i love that people flocking rebel in video games way more than they rebel in real life right flocking amazing and and the thing about this one too is theres not a whole lot the sjws can grab my because usually the video game market like the game companies they use sjws to protect themselves oh yeah but theres nothing you can really sjw about this is not about a woman its not about an agenda its about we dont want to pay for in-app purchases and we wanted diablo 4 on a flocking console on a flocking desktop diablo is made for computer right but listen to this this is so this is after the place is kind of like buzzing like oh listen to this flocking guy by the way this is lord fluffy and he is like hes actually a friend of mine and hes a fairly popular diablo streamer so i was marking out i was like oh this is great that he asked this question he basically is like you know so its just gonna come to pc right yeah like nobody believes this is real ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this or in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any a moment to do pc you guys not have phones yeah then they crap on the fans oh you would you guys dont have phones what a cockade by the way this guy like disrespect this shed out of it what the flock you guys dont have phones did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet who wants to flocking yes its also on the switch youre right this guy flocking flocking its old wheres the other guy that comes out you want these things on next listen to this guy listen to this guys great hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke its a fully fully fledged jiya blow experience on on mobile which everybody will get to play and hopefully which will bring new heroes to sanctuary as well as welcoming that community back into it and something were very excited about i should say were super excited about diablo immortal we brought you are the hablo to cosmos pc xbox place theyre really trying to justify what theyre doing its like yeah we get that we dont give a flock your audience doesnt its they have arrogance dude the first time i ever saw this happen in a video game world that i remember yeah was when the xbox one and the playstation 4 coming out yup and xbox were saying had to be always online yep and then every said flock you we dont want that and they said well you know if you dont like it you can just play xbox 360 like oh really no how about we just go buy ps4 flockface yeah exactly you know i mean and thats what happened they got their ass handed to them after that its its almost like dude why do people like invite failure i dont understand this i went on a rant about this when xbox launched and i said before xbox launch went what you were just describing i said dude right i said right and this was before the the heat this is before the everybody knew about it when the news was just leaking about like what was going on and i said dude if you hired me to be the head of microsoft right now i would make that company an extra like hundreds of millions into a billion dollars or something because i would make the right decision and get rid of all this shed and do the right thing and for this shed gets out and im like somebody has to do that theres no way this is gonna work out and then yeah look what happened its like any one of us could have told you that so why is there some guy over there whos like so adamant about carrying through a plan that is flocking retarded because theyre not really gamers you know i mean like when they when x good like the people that are developing it and like even those people on stage probably really actually didnt have a say in this its like a shareholder people its the top executive people so youve got all these people sitting up there like shed look at all these people making all this money on microtransactions and bull well we want it on that were gonna do the next diablo game its like even though thats not what any of us want they dont care they see all these mobile games making sh1tloads of money but heres the other thing if im working at blizzard im saying this guys lets get in on this cash grab in the mobile games but we cant do it until we deliver diablo 4 or we deliver something else so like its quite you think they could have launched it theyre just theyre big rich money hungry people they are out of touch they dont care they dont raise but they could have made more money they could have made a ton of money if they had come out and said we are announcing that we are beginning the ideas and whatever the initial whatever of diablo 4 and then they show the graphic and then they say we this is at the very beginning stages but its a huge announcement we wanted to let you know it could you know were years away still from it we are working so hard on diablo 4 and the ideas your creativity the lore the story making blah blah blah and get everyone all fired up and say but we know you want other things now so heres another playable character in reaper of souls and guess what we have an app coming out called this and then people would accept that they and it didnt cost you anything to just kind of tease people about diablo 4 but to me this tells you theres no plans for diablo 4 i mean that was half the anger is just a major disappointment but also the fact that they built up this is like all we heard about for like they sold all these virtual tickets and if you guys if anybody gets a chance can like duty you look up the videos of this zoom in on the crowd leah dont we going back i want you to what are you doing i just wanted to say one thing for you finished oh my god she does this all the time she doesnt talk let me talk we talk like back and forth she doesnt do that so i dont know what she was gonna say but my i was just gonna say like look into the crowd at these poor sons of bitches with their funder sticks like not being able to use them this is this is i mean i just love how theyre like they just like the video game community is like dude were not dealing with your bs go flock yourself yeah well is it a publicly traded company i think so yeah see thats the problem because when you have your company publicly traded and electronic arts is the same thing do you have fiduciary responsibility to make the most money for your company right so the stock prices go up so you have a responsibility to your stockholders and when you have that hanging over your head youre just gonna go for a flocking money grab and its gonna just poison your company

[..] so following the announcement of diablo immortal a blizzcon a lot of people have asked to me to give an opinion on the situation and absolute pr nightmare following the games reveal and live q&a but first for those of you that arent aware of what diablo immortal is or why people are pissed off about it let me get you up to speed for several years fans of diablo havent had any big announcements in terms of new content for diablo 3 or news of diablo 4 or any news of remakes for diablo 1 or 2 for pc the last time anything substantial was released for diablo was the reaper of souls expansion for diablo 3 back in 2014 this led many people to believe that this was going to be the year where something big would be announced for diablo a blizzcon this idea was further backed up by the fact that there were a few articles in regards to blizzard posting job listings for an unannounced diablo project earlier this year and a few days before blizzcon a few fake blizzcon leaks said there would be a diablo 2 remastered announcement unfortunately what fans got wasnt a new or remastered diablo game for pc like they were hoping for but a mobile mmo a rpg diablo game for ios and android instead understandably the fans werent happy and the reception to this game is probably the most negative ive ever seen and if anything it just goes to show how out of touch blizzard are with their community i mean what the flock did they think was gonna happen the vast majority of fans that attended liske on our pc gamers theyre not interested in whats essentially a more sh1tty version of diablo 3 on mobile which will obviously have a clunkier controls a lower difficulty of content than a pc game and be riddled with microtransactions of course people are going to be pissed off and disappointed if thats the only announcement one of your supposed core franchises has had in the past four to five years personally i flocking hate mobile games other than old school runescape on mobile thats the only decent one i can think of id rather do nothing than play a mobile game but i do have to admit when i saw a bit of the gameplay from diablo immortal i did think to myself you know for a mobile game it looks decent in terms of gameplay and i think if blizzard had announced this alongside another deal project maybe a diablo remaster for pc or even the slightest hint the diablo 4 is in development then i think the community reception would be completely different maybe even slightly positive it seems to me that as blizzard has grown over the years into the mega company they are today their focus has shifted from how can we please fans and make incredible games – how can we please investors and to maintain unsustainable profit increases each year from a business point of view its a very smart idea for them to make diablo a mobile in fact i bet theyll make way more money by creating this mobile live service diablo game than they would from making diablo 4 simply because of how large the mobile market is and how popular mobile games are in china is depressing but when you look at the revenue mobile games make they can far surpass pc and console games costing a fraction of the price to make just look at league of legends in 2017 their worldwide revenue was 2.1 billion dollars yet in the same year a chinese knockoff version of league on mobile called arena of valor surpassed 3 billion dollars in a similar time frame with 96% of their revenue coming from the chinese market im sure if blizzard did make diablo 4 or older diablo remasters it would be insanely popular and make a crapload of money but as weve seen from the triple-a gaming industry time and time again a crapload of money just isnt the same as all of the money in the world which they constantly seem to be striving to make regardless of artistic integrity or respect from the audience that gave them their success in the first place the truth is that a brand new traditional diablo game on pc and consoles would be way harder to monetize than a mobile live service diablo game i think the most entertaining part of this sh1tshow came from the reaction of the crowd after the games announcement and blizzards attempt at damage control honestly watching the opening ceremony into q&a i felt so bad for watching for having to try and make the audience excited for this mobile game it just wasnt happening i think he was expecting roars of cheers and applause after the trailer but instead he got a few clubs and what id imagined to be many disappointed faces we want to use mobile devices as the platform for a new diablo game because nothing brings a family together like slaying demons diablo immortal [applause] [music] the two highlights of the diablo immortal q&a for me was the guy who asked if itd be available on pc and also the guy who asked if it was a late april fools joke is there any plans to make this play strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at a moment to do pc did you guys not have fun yeah you guys hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke unfortunately nobody asked how aggressively blizzard will be monetizing this game of microtransactions which was the main thing i was interested in knowing something i think worth pointing out about this diablo immortal q&a is that the developers didnt have answers to a lot of fairly basic questions people had about the game such as a release date how does progression work how difficult will it be which leads me to believe that the games are a long way from release i just wonder why they decided to announce this game at blizzcon when its so far out rather than a smaller then maybe focused on mobile phones or something if theyre announcing diablo immortals so early on in development it makes me think that its highly likely that there arent currently any other diablo games in the works because anyone even remotely competent at marketing would know that this game is best announced alongside a diablo product that your core fanbase actually wants something else thats been talked about allies that blizzard seems to be contracting chinese internet company netties to make diablo immortal and a lot of people have pointed out that two of netties as previous mobile games crusaders of lights and endless of god look very similar in terms of user interface to the diablo immortal footage that was shown causing many people to claim that diablo immortal is essentially a reskin of a chinese diablo ripoff personally im not too sure if thats true when it comes to ui design it seems like there are a few differences and honestly i dont see any other way you could make an a rpg work on mobile without this kind of ui layout so be honest all mobile a rpgs look pretty similar anyway so my assumption would be that netties even used some kind of mobile a rpg template or took inspiration from what worked in their previous games but to me it does look a little bit more than just a reskin one of the major talking points of this controversy was how blizzard seems to be censoring criticism by hiding top comments on both the diablo immortal gameplay trailer and cinematic trailer even i posted a few comments that got removed of course this only made things worse and pissed people off even more further perpetuating this absolute pr nightmare they even uploaded separate unlisted versions of the cinematic and gameplay trailer on the battlenet launcher to try and escape the dislikes it didnt seem to work of course all of this didnt seem to stop a lot of the so-called gaming journalists from rushing to blizzards defense on twitter with one absolute flocking twats trying to twist the entire situation to be a sexism issue and toxic masculinity what a flockin bellend honestly whenever theres a controversy in gaming that gamers are generally pissed off about you always get these social justice retards trying to spin things and make it about politics gender and discrimination any form of negativity and criticism some gaming journalists find toxic you know whats more toxic allowing triple-a publishers to continue to design games purely around monetization gambling mechanics and pay2win bs without cooling them out on it negativity in gaming is a flocking good thing if you ask me if it wasnt for negativity and gaming communities coming together to say flock you to the suits at the top of these companies then nothing would ever change ea wouldnt have changed the loot boxes in star wars battlefront 2 world of warcraft classic wouldnt be in development old school runescape wouldnt exist if nobody spoke out and complained about the direction weve slowly been heading in the gaming industry over the past few years because of fear of being perceived as toxic wed have much worse and more aggressively monetized games out today than we already do so to all you toxic flockers out there on youtube and on the internet that actually complain about things you dont like about games or the games industry thank you what youre doing is better than pandering to triple-a publishers that already make more money than you could possibly perceive unlike some of the shields who consider themselves as games journalists other than that i was quite happy about the warcraft 3 remaster and released a announcement for wow classic so at least thats a positive we can end this video on and if youre a diablo fan then fs in the chat i guess but thats it for this video guys as always id love to know your thoughts on this whole situation in the comments below do you think diablo immortal would have been received differently if it was announced alongside another diablo game or are we just all entitled flocks omitting our toxic masculinity and should be ashamed of ourselves id love to hear your thoughts in the comments below but thanks for watching i hope you all have a great day and theyll see you again really soon

[..] fluffy face of diablo 3 is ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys to play your tablet to yes its also on the switch youre right hello blizzard definitely didnt expect what they got when they you know pretty much announced and revealed the new diablo game or should i say the new mobile diablo game because diablo immortal is not an actual pc title or anything that you know just diablo fans in general gaming fans in general probably would have expected no no no this is a mobile game and diablo fans are pissed so heres a probably shocking tidbit of news for you to hear okay i have never played a single diablo game in my life never never have played it i dont think at least ive always heard that theyre really good games and ive never heard anyone say anything bad really about these games ive always just you know heard very good things about them ive never picked any of them up ive considered doing so a few different times when they go on sale and stuff like that but i just never really have gotten into it i dont know maybe thats something ill have to do but you know this is just crazy to watch honestly its kind of funny in some regards because this game is just shaping up to be a dumpster fire both on the community side and probably on the game side as well because honestly theres just i dont think any examples really of a mobile game from a franchise like diablo ever coming to mobile and it just being good you know fallout shelter is garbage and i think that might be really the only mobile game i can remember from a triple-a franchise that ive actually played now the community has a really good reason to be mad about this and honestly im kind of glad to see that they are mad about this because its been quite a minute since diablo 3 and diablo fans have been waiting for a new game in the franchise for years now so obviously you can imagine how disappointed theyd be when blizzard holds this event theyve been teasing this and then everyone whos a diablo fan comes to this event hoping to see something about a new actual diablo game just to have blizzard pretty much mocked them on stage and to reveal this mobile game that nobody in the community wanted or asked for now ive been reading a lot of articles about this and i see a couple different viewpoints from different articles and stuff like that and i want to talk about that and i want to talk about the controversy around this game because i 100% side with the community about this game as a call of duty fan i can only imagine how pissed most of us would be since weve been waiting for modern warfare 2 remastered and diablo fans have even wanted remastered diablo games but i can only imagine how pissed the whole call of duty community would be if next year activision came on stage and said hey guys guess what were were mastering modern warfare 2 black ops 1 black ops 2 but heres the catch its not gonna be on console its not gonna be on pc you will be able to play for the first time these games on mobile not only would i not really be surprised if that happened but i would also be kind of pissed because i mean you might as well just poke them in the eye while youre at it and if youre blizzard you should have thought this through much better because diablo is a game that is primarily played on pc and then of course theres console players and stuff too if youre going to announce a new diablo game the very last thing you want to do is announce to a passionate pc community that theyre not getting a new diablo game as a matter of fact the only people who will be getting a new diablo game are mobile gamers and knowing how mobile gaming goes this isnt going to be any traditional diablo game or anything this is just going to be some sort of microtransaction farm for blizzard this all even culminated into a point where the crowd reacted by at the pan asking questions even asking if it was a april fools joke from blizzard which the community around him actually applauded which thats not a good sign if youre revealing a game and the worst thing honestly when i watched back on this clip and i look at it and i see number one how the community in this you know arena itself has reacted to the news by booing the people on stage the last thing you want to do is kind of shed on them and kind of poke at them because when everyone was talking and everything about it the guy on stage said and i quote do you guys not have phones i think the last thing you want to do when you announce a game to boos actually from a crowd of passionate players within that franchise is is to ask something like that dont you all have phones everybody has a goddamn television – but that doesnt mean that they want a tv built-in app diablo game you know this just wasnt the way to approach it on blizzards part and they really should have considered holding a mobile game at least beyond actually releasing a game on pc the community has reacted very very negatively it has become somewhat of a controversy in the gaming community after this all this happened because like i said diablo fans never wanted a mobile game there was no demand for a mobile game everyone was waiting on diablo for blizzard lets everyone know that this event will have some sort of diablo re you know related event going on inside of it and then they tell them that theres multiple diablo productions going on right now and then when everyone thinks theyre gonna get a diablo 4 game they just get this sh1tty mobile game that knowing blizzard will likely end up with some form of micro transactions that are either pay to win or just complete spam inside of the game and i cant blame people for being upset about it you know i cant blame people for tearing the subreddit apart i cant blame people for getting on social media to voice their concerns i cant blame the people in that event for asking such questions as is this an out of season april fools joke when something like this comes up when i first heard about this i didnt even know it was a mobile game i just heard diablo immortals coming out and people were pissed i was like well i havent ever played a diablo game that i can remember it doesnt really matter to me but then looking into this seeing that clip and seeing how blizzard has reacted in a very tone-deaf manner this is an example this is what people have been talking about this is highlighting a major issue in the gaming industry i just dont get how blizzard thinks that its appropriate to respond to all of this backlash with this rhetoric as if just because they have phones they have to play our mobile game you know after this happened there are now calls for boycotts there are petitions to get the game canceled theres accusations against blizzard for removing dislikes on the cinematic and gameplay trailers which have huge amounts of dislikes but then according to kotaku in this article i know i know its kotaku i know they the blizzcon executive producer actually admitted that they were expecting backlash but not to this degree and this is my point if you were expecting backlash and you knew that the community didnt want this why did you come on stage with this product i think that the community would have been much happier if you just came on stage and said look we have a mobile game coming out however we are going to have diablo 4 out before it there is another diablo game coming very soon but they didnt do that they came out on stage they announced this product no one wanted they got booed and then reacted probably in the worst way possible because i mean i understand you think backlash is coming but you dont react to that way to the people you know but another problem with the game that has been highlighted by some fans is that there have been art and assets and other things from previous diablo games cut and actually put into this mobile game however these are just accusations the people behind diablo have denied this theyve said that these different assets and stuff have been built from the ground up for this game something in this article though that i do want to talk about is it says and i quote the explosion of outrage has many on social media discussing the extent to which video game culture enables entitlement you know the whole thing about being consumer is that you are entitled okay you dont have to be a cunt you dont have to be an ass about things but you are entitled to the product that you want thats the beautiful thing about capitalism and competition is that you very clearly have something that you want youre entitled to you have the money youre the one buying it someone has to put up if no ones making the product you go make the product if the products being made other people are gonna make the product theres gonna be competition better products are made from that so the whole idea that video game culture enables entitlement is i feel like a little bit flawed but has some ground to it because thats just how we as consumers behave in the first place theres people who go into mcdonalds theyre entitled to food as well most of the time at least and then when they go in there and they dont have whatever they want or they dont get their food in time people are gonna act very very similar to how theyre acting now except theyre doing it in front of somebody theyre not really doing it in a reddit post or doing it in the crowd of some auditorium you know the video game culture does enable entitlement but so doesnt pretty much all markets because if there was no entitlement to want the product that you want and then to get it from somebody there wouldnt really be business you know i hope you understand what im saying i just i think that that goes a bit too far and it pins too much blame you know anyways let me know what you think down below if you did enjoy

immortal and signing out

in my video talking about sonys crusade towards fanservice videogames ive talked about how the console market is dying at the moment in asia due to the rise of pc gaming and mobile gaming to gaming platforms that are cheaper more convenient and in some ways more advanced than its console counterparts at least the pcs for advanced i said in that video that the pc gaming market and the mobile gaming market are going toe-to-toe in terms of popularity and what do you know i was correct or at least in southeast asia i was correct now heres the thing that you need to be aware of and youre talking about a growing market like the mobile sure the mobile market is growing but the problem with that is the market is incredibly competitive people are probably only going to play one or two mobile games at most its going to be really difficult for people to switch into other mobile games unless if they got tired with their current favorite mobile games or if those mobile games are pulling off some really stupid moves with their business decisions or gameplay changes so when game developers are trying to capitalize it to the popularity of the mobile market they really need to understand the audiences that theyre going to attract when developing their games while mobile gaming is pretty broad in terms of his audiences you still need to have your own niche you still need to have a target audience who will definitely buy your game unfortunately this is a memo that none of the people at blizzard god blizzard if you guys dont know is the game company behind the habló starcraft warcraft its mmo counterpart and their most popular game as of late overwatch this gaming company is so big and popular that they have their own convention called blizzcon when they announce upcoming games and future content for already existing titles one of the games being announced for the future is the next installment of diablo titled diablo immortal now people have been really anticipating for years for another diablo game to come out but this trailer for diablo immortal wasnt really received well in fact i can safely say that it has an incredibly poor reception on both the gameplay trailer and a cinematic trailer why is that you might ask well its very simple actually this game is going to be for mobile you can get this game on google play and apples app store when its released so years and years of waiting for another property outlaw game and what the fans got instead is a very similar move that poll with command & conquer and this ladies and gentlemen highlights a massive misunderstanding and disconnect between the developers who developed this game and the audiences that they attract now heres the thing blizzard has developed a successful mobile game before and that is hearthstone hearthstone is very successful on mobile because its pretty much a direct port of the already successful pc version of the game a lot of people know hearthstone and even my friends play hearthstone in both mobile and pc but the reason why hearthstone is so popular in the mobile market is because its a port of the already successful pc version if diablo immortal is announced to be a pc game and a proper next installment for the diablo franchise i think people wouldnt have been angry about it but evidently you have tons and tons of people at blizzcon booing the developers the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc and then you have this guy being a hero that we all need at this point hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke oh man that was brilliant and that pretty much sums up the reaction that a lot of diablo fans have with this game what the hell is blizzard doing the apple fans have been asking for a proper diablo game ever since the third one really disappointed them although reaper of souls managed to win the heart of a lot of diablo fans back its one expansion pack too late diablo at this moment is not really doing well with the fans so the best way to win their hearts over is to release a game and a platform that theyre not playing did you guys not have fun yes we do have phones we just dont game on them or at least i dont play games in the play store i do play shin megami tensei strange journey on mobile with a nintendo dsm later but aside from a nintendo dsi emulator i aint playing anything on my twitter browsing hentai data based communication device or speaking of hands eyes if you want me to talk more about hand ties you can support me on patreon for just $1 a month link down below also huge thanks to my new patreon circ joshua and brian you guys are fantastic anyway lets get back to diablo immortal all the hate for diablo immortal is primarily caused by blizzard not announcing any mainline diablo game for the pc or the next-gen consoles if you play diablo in there for some reason the fact that this game is on mobile shows that whoever is in charge with the diablo franchise right now doesnt understand what their core audience is wanted they dont want a mobile game they just want a proper diablo title on pc something that they havent gotten as a flake so why do you have to announce a game that people will definitely boo on stage whoever is in charge of diablo doesnt understand why this game will fail so let me explain to them you built your fan base for this game mainly on the pc for the record i love the first two diablo games there are two good old pc games that i used to play in my notebook when i was in middle school because its an incredibly low spec game that can run on anything and its awesome diablo 3 was incredibly disappointing for me because the always online error seven bs and the game played that was just not as substantial that was at the year where people keep recommending me torchlight 2 as an alternative and my god i freaking love torchlight 2 its the diablo game that is better than the newer diablo game im not really like a huge fan of diablo but i do love their games and you can say that i am one of the many potential audiences for this game but i dont play mobile games the games i play on mobile are like i said nintendo ds games using an emulator like shin megami tensei straight journey or chrono trigger if i hear diablo i expect a proper pc dungeon crawling game and there is a market for that but there isnt a market for a diablo game on the mobile is there a market for a dungeon crawling game on mobile sure are theyre going to be interested in a diablo dungeon crawling game when they are too busy playing honor dungeon crawling games no and especially if the game that were talking about is pretty much a reskin of the other game from the same developer the mobile market right now is overpopulated its a really damn competitive market there are so many ideas being tried on mobile that you really need to be creative in order to pull off a successful mobile title piggybacking on the success of the diablo franchise is not going to work youre gonna piss off the fanbase and youre not gonna invite more people into your game oh you have is a diablo game on mobile which considering how diverse and creative double-bond gaming market really is right now its not a really good selling point and were not even getting to the micro transaction side i dont know how exploitative the micro transaction of this game will be in the ign article responded with this and theyre capable of top-tier gaming experiences okay just because mobile gaming is getting more more powerful doesnt mean that you should develop your next diablo game on mobile yes most if not all diablo fans or people who like diablo probably own a smartphone but they dont game on the smartphone and they certainly wont play a diablo game on the smartphone they want to play diablo game on pc sure the current smartphone has the technology to bring high-end games but youre making game for a fanbase that dont really plan the smartphone it shows a fundamental lack of understanding on the market that you are trying to hit trust me when i say that i know the mobile audiences very well and theyre way too busy playing other games when you release this one and best of all you dont have to trust me i think you all need a visual representation of peoples interest in this game this is a perfect visual representation look at that no seriously look at that look at the number of people who are interested to play this game this is an event full of people who are loyal fans of your product you make a game that deviates from their expectations and you have booing and people asking if this is an april fools joke and if theyre not doing that theyre not going to visit your booth you can try to defend this game as much as you want you can say that this game is designed to be a bit more mainstream were just following the current trend and if you dont like the game you dont have to play it but this antagonizing attitude will piss people off to the point where none of them are going to buy the game you already alienated your entire fan base so who else is gonna buy this game the market will decide in fact the market has already spoken zero interest in this game and you can just look at it through these sad and depressing pictures and now we get into the heartaches i mean good god the hotcakes are off the charts with this one heres a good example wow i mean wow call reed richards because i dont think he is capable of having this level reach do you know why people associate mobile games with women because they play very simple match three games like candy crush i have the data right here they dont associate women and mobile gaming with games like say mobile legends most of the women who play mobile games that i know of are playing very casual very simple mobile games also the people who bash mobile games are not bashing them because there are more women playing mobile games theyre bashing them because mobile games are not for their microtransactions pay2win bs that a lot of people dont get when playing full price games on more advanced gaming platforms mostly dont get that and mobile is just not a good platform to use to play more advanced type of games people prefer the comfort of the mouse and keyboard or the controller when playing certain video games especially when those games are more advanced in those platforms mobile games are surely getting more and more advanced but theyre not gonna be as advanced as their pc gaming or console gaming counterpart finally caught up in specs to the software thats being developed mobile is very much a viable platform for resource-intensive games like diablo ok one just because mobile games are capable of running more resource intensive games doesnt mean that you should make a diablo game on it and – you dont play diablo games on mobile you just dont gatekeeper to the franchise dude i can tell you for sure that women who play mobile games are not going to be interested with this one women who grew up playing diablo and loving diablo are not going to be interested with this one were giving out criticisms and telling developers why and how this game will fail but your response to our criticisms is oh youre just gatekeeping and preventing newcomers to come in i dont even get the logic behind this one but since no one in the development team are listening at all enjoy those empty booths oh my god like i said hearthstone is a trading card game that is successful on the pc and the reason why its successful on the mobile is because the mobile version is a direct port you are completely off if you compare the game to this diablo mobile game you might notice a little bit of trend when you go on twitter and find these really hot takes a lot of these verified users defending the new game are game journalists and industry insiders people who are supposed to represent the interest of the consumers but theyre not theyre there to shield theyre there to defend blizzard committing such lazy hack job of a game what makes it worse is that blizzard is a were of your criticisms they know about the ratio they know about the negative reception but instead of trying to fix the game theyre trying to hide any sorts of criticisms and even delete their videos or unlisted them and we upload it to reset the ratings as if thats going to work stop hiding from criticisms blizzard everyone is airing their comments on this everyone is making videos on this everyone is letting people know about their concerns the more and more you hide from it people will lose faith to you as a company theyre gonna move on from diablo to utter better dungeon crawling games to sum up can anyone blame diablo fans for being incredibly disrespectful towards blizzard or anyone who is responsible for this hack job of a game this product is downright insulting to the fans this product screams we dont care what the fans want all we care about is to follow the current trends without understanding what makes it trendy in the first place also to make tons and tons of money because you know the mobile gaming market is trendy right trust me when i say that i know the mobile gaming demographic very well i have family members who are mobile gamers i have friends who are mobile gamers i know what they want i know what theyre looking for i can say with absolute certainty that theyre not looking for diablo immortal when mobile legends or faiths go or any other mobile games are still dominating the market and since the diablo fans are not asking for a mobile game the final question for today is who is the target demographic for diablo immortal ponder on that for a second blizzard or anyone who is responsible for this lazy hack job

[..] i want to take you guys in a little journey lets rewind to 2014 april the first web blizzard gleefully announced their new mobile game happy reaper an april fools joke diablo on the mobile where they rightfully take the piss out of mobile games sarcastically talking about features fast forward to 2018 blizzcon activision blizzard and ironically announces the latest addition to the diablo franchise a mobile game diablo immortal what happened and where did it all go so wrong if you think of being a little bit dramatic thats because i flocking am thats the point theres people on the internet going around effectively saying were all overreacting were getting just really mad at developers for no reason if you dont like a game dont play it and theyre missing the point so thats what im gonna try and articulate im gonna try and explain as to why blizzard messed this up so badly how they did it wrong and why everyones kind of like how i am a little bit not not too happy cuz im generally speaking a pretty happy guy but i mean this whole diablo situation couldnt have been done worse like theres the right way of doing things and theres a wrong way so lets go over what blizzard did wrong the status if you want a blueprint of how not to release a mobile game then look no further than electronic arts most recent mobile game release at e3 earlier on this year command & conquer rivals a downtrodden deprived fanbase having their game at that was in the process of being made cut had nothing since 2012 and then at e3 they say theyre going to be releasing a new command & conquer title and then electronic arts tries to force a mobile game down this diehard fan bases throat and as you can imagine people werent too happy you go to their official reveal trailer 62000 down votes to 2.9 karos is it sound familiar so i have fan base no game for some years greedy company trying to force some mobile mtx written bs down peoples throats and people arent too happy about it and after the announcement of this debauchery of the command & conquer franchise the ea chief design officer patrick soderlund has the audacity to say we need two respects mobile games just respect it this sounds familiar at all any of this any of this yeah its because diablo activision blizzard are literally doing the exact same flocking thing diablos audience is comprised of primarily pc gamers and has been for the last 20 years blizzcon its full of the most die-hard fans they literally get into a middle to most of them and fly to anaheim paying hundreds of dollars on hotel rooms hundreds of dollars on the tickets theyre the most hard-core blizzard fans diablo as a game the community is generally speaking pretty hardcore they have modes that are called high core not gonna be in the mobile game by the way now either blizzard is so far out of touch with their community that they thought this was going to go down well as the main event and the opening ceremony the main event on the main stage directly after it or disgusting money-grubbing greedy little investors just want to make a quick buck from the diablo ip and theyre gonna run blizzard into the flocking ground i really dont know what the better of the two options is hopefully all the feedback and the uproar and the outrage that the diablo community is causing make these parties wake up make them realize that were not happy with what theyre trying to force down our throats that they cant just announce nothing for many years and then be like heres a mobile game by the way give us money now you think blizzard couldnt make things any worse and youre wrong the people who are in control of the diablo youtube channel had to decided to take it upon themselves to basically start censoring people in the comments section you can just go i mean ive run a youtube channel its pretty easy you just click on a comment you dont like open the thing and your breasts allene i myself only ever deleted literal people just linking viruses but no theyre just straight-up deleting actual comments your boy here hes a hero red pill shark he says 14 times i have been deleted so i say again no king rules forever my son after a great 20 years and many unforgettable memories we part ways you changed blizzard youve changed so that yeah 14 times its been deleted and you might be thinking of just make this up no theres tons of people who have had their comments deleted like other youtubers posting comments on the diablo channel just having their completed you go to the social blade okay this is a scary thing you go to the social blade and you can track how many total comments have been posted on the video versus how many are currently there now as it stands at ty of at the time of making this video blizzard have removed twenty five thousand and forty six comments twenty five thousand i dont know if theyve got like some sort of moderation software going on there but no they do theyre specifically going out and censoring reasonable comments now people are just basically if you dont know i mean as a stream right this is like the first rule of streaming is if you dont like a behavior you subtly deal with it or you just you should ignore it right and then it kind of just goes away or it doesnt get worse the second you try and center people you just multiply the issue and now everyone is there and theyve just multiplied the problem that made it just so much worse for themselves and its just yeah hey blizzard delete this heres a scary part and im a little bit skeptical about this myself so if you go a little bit further and you look into these social bleh statistics of this video and social blade is extremely accurate site you can cross-reference and check with this website on whatever video you want go into exile blade comm check the use of videos and youll see that the numbers line up except for diablo the immortal trailer has a total social blade rating so the amount of times people uploaded and downloaded it is six hundred and two thousand times now if you look at the actual ratings on the video if you plus the dislikes and the lights together it adds up to four hundred and eleven thousand youll be wondering whats going on there thats a total of a hundred and ninety one thousand votes that effectively have just disappeared and the spooky part is the votes that have disappeared a lot up votes and down votes its just down votes so 191000 down votes have just vanished into thin air i myself being a skeptic in most things i am extremely skeptical and id like to think that im pretty flocking woke but im not im just a sperg i would think that either its a glitch with the system or some guy on the reddit you know diablo red its pretty toxic right now you know theres various forums out there where everyones just writing about diablo someone would have made some sort of a bot which creates accounts and down votes and then they would have subtracted the body the botted down votes right thats what i want in my head thats how i rationalize it but theres plenty of people on the forums and things saying blizzard working together with youtube blizzard of working together with google but i mean my question is if they were really working together and they were colluding in to try and make their video look better why not give it a positive ratio you know why not why not like at least get it to 50% its i mean theyve moved it like a fraction of a percent in terms of the rating right its basically done nothing i mean 191000 download says lockdown voice right but at the end of the day its still an abysmal rating and i dont think its just the skeptical part of me wants to believe that blizzard isnt going that low but you guys can make up your minds for that im kind of like on the fence here and i would like to believe that bliss arent doing that or theres no shifty thing with youtube because i dont ive never seen it anywhere else like if it was happening in other places and there was other videos where people are missing with the thing wouldnt justin bieber do that wouldnt like some of the big music companies pay for better ratings on this song so they you know how come its just blizzard that have they got like secret connection so we dont know about i dont know i like to take the templo hat off and think of the most obvious and reasonable solution which would be a bug this is probably the last major critical point i have and its the fact that blizzard are not making the game entirely themselves or at least acquiring the company and then building the game in america its affect us theyre working in partnership with a company called nittis her based in china and they make mobile games and if you look up the knit knees games its monka flocking yes look at this crusaders of light on steam what is this game relevant to you similar games ive played bless online pretty much the worst game i think ive ever flocking played i i mean it was terrible that was that was a terrible mmo i think blizzard i think wow i think diablo i think i dont think bless online okay then you look at the reviews for this crusaders of light game 50% all the reviews were positive like theyre making games that are sub pi which is just if youre gonna make a mobile game blizzard at least make it yourself or acquire the company thats going to make it like buy that shed thats clearly thats just a way that its like oh this is a loophole we can pay people in china its a lot cheaper and it just it just comes off as cheap and tacky and it just feel like this is like its just adding salt to the wound lets bless online regardless lets try and talk about how you do it right lets talk how would you make a mobile game which lets be honest here its inevitable theyve already saturated we are a blizzard were gonna be making more mobile games for the other ips its happening right mobile gaming is huge and we cant stop it but theres a right way of doing it and a wrong way of doing it so lets talk about a great example of how to do it right blizzard get your pen and your paper out and take some notes so earlier on this year yet again at e3 both easter the guys would make elder scrolls and fallout and all that other stuff who cares about the other games announced a new mobile game elder scrolls blades okay you could tell by the audience reaction people werent you know super happy about it you know very very similar to how they reacted to you know g hablo immortal initially very similar the crowd you know they werent like shouting out and cheering and stuff okay very similar audience okay you dont remember there hasnt been a just a normal like elder scrolls game come out since skyrim in 2012 its its like the parallels are insane okay this is like its like a perfect script for blizzard to follow it okay people werent too happy but after they announced the mobile game they then put on a trailer for elder scrolls 6 the new game they didnt specify win then it was just like just a panning shot over some mountains and they said elder scrolls 6 it was literally just a teaser but that basically tells me they know ok our audience clearly is the high core gamers right they dont just want some mobile game but theyre up we do want to go into the mobile market we want to show them that we havent just throwing them to the side and just completely ditch them and were just trying to cash in and get money with a mobile game looks for that i mean the dispensed mobile is theyre doing it for the money right lets be real here if youre trying to make a game right and you want it to be the best it possibly can be and you let really love making games youre going to do it on the platform that is the best and in my opinion that is a pc and i think thats on average i think people would have that same opinion right if youre trying to make the best possible game possible right its not on a mobile phone regardless they knew people wouldnt be too satisfied with just a mobile game they dont want to have the franchise force on a mobile phone and then you and thats why they announced ill just go six so now if you go to the trailer for the blades oh would you look at that 17 k up folks 3.1 k downloads people werent even that mad i guarantee you if blizzard had followed the same script and they had just announced the stupid mobile game for the habló right announce a stupid game and then just had instead of mountains put some flocking dungeons in there and shed some dead guys maybe and then diablo for coming soon instantly the outrage that people feel engaging just trying to force these money flocking making machines down our throat its all instantly its like oh cool we get a mobile game to mess around with whatever blizzard can go into the mobile market but they havent forgotten about us and they are making what we actually want the best possible diablo game it can be on the platform that we wanted on computers or whatever they can port it to consoles i dont care you get the idea and everything would have just gone down so much better now im gonna say some wild shed which might trigger a few people and actually make some people mad well see i dont think mobile games are necessarily always a bad thing and i think there was a place for mobile gaming especially with in blizzards realm i think they can make mobile games for the other eye piece and they could honestly be a good thing and a positive thing a great example is a supplementary mobile game that blizzard made for warcraft we control your garrison followers from your phone so while youre taking a shed you could send you guys on missions right before you woke up or before youre gonna go to sleep you could send you guys to missions i used the app religiously throughout legion and it was extremely convenient in really handy app and it was just a all-around actually felt kind of good right now you can take this one step further right you can take this one step further and take it to another level they could say pay in the enttec or hire some guys from the antic i dont know how this works but effectively they can make battle pet go what should it be like pokemon go where you walk you go catch pets okay these pets would then be synced to the main game from the supplementary mobile game so you go around you captain you capture like a squirrel okay you now have the squirrel in your main game vice versa and you could obviously get the scroll in the game without having to play the mobile app at all it would just be a supplemental thing you can do while youre out then youre doing stuff yeah well youre outside i know its concern right its crazy right you could do the same thing with diablo you could do the same thing with diablo you could basically allow people to play the diablo game for example and they could find something within the game which would then supplement the main game so say youve got some achievements in the game you unlock some cosmetic wings on your main game vice versa you could even go as far to say that if they can balance it correctly you could even farm keystones or farm you know like i dont know theyre gonna have rift keys in diablo 4 find something in the mobile game which would then transfer over to the actual game supplementing it and i feel like you can do that for so many of the other ips and they can actually just be a genuinely fun and cool experience if youve made it this far under the video youre the flippin man or woman or whatever whatever you identify as i really do appreciate you whatever appreciate you spending it like what does this like 20 20 minutes long but its huge actually too long i had to cut down a little bit there are more points that i would like to articulate further but its kind of hard to do in youtube so i would suggest if you have any questions or if you want to know more check out my twitch stream because ill pretty much be up to answer anything you want there like literally you can ask me anything you know ill do my best to answer it i mean its gonna be pretty spooky but ill do my best to answer it also discord i havent asked me anything section that i also check regularly so you can check that shed up and theres also people whose shed post there and you can go and hate on di people and stuff its good well you can you know i hear the opposite and you can be you know one of the people i think they called shills now people are party gonna call me a shell just for defending mobile games a little bit appreciate you guys yo if youre commenting on the video regardless of what you say appreciate you but thank you for watching and i will see you next time whenever the hell it is maybe seven months from now maybe tomorrow peace

whats up everybody kinetic here today i need to read a bit i really dont like making videos like this its not my thing to be a drama channel but today has been one of the most shocking depressing disenchanting every other word you could align along that vein for me personally because while i i didnt have high expectations for blizzard and them announcing anything major for diablo ive been disappointed and let down too many times now from previous blizzcon waking up today and the very first thing that i see is that they have announced a mobile game a mobile only diablo game and were going to talk about that and specifically why people who dont understand this dont understand why theres so much drama so much hate so much anger they dont know what theyre talking about they dont play diablo they have been paying attention at all to whats been simmering now into a boiling point for all of these years and have no business telling us that we are ungrateful that were crybabies and stuff like that theres already at an article on mashable saying things like this and its just absurd now this might sound rich coming from me because i have promoted mobile games here on my channel and to me theres a very distinctive difference because its as ive said not that im hating on the fact that theyve got a mobile game but the fact that its the only thing that we have now as an update as fresh content if you will and im gonna talk about why ii you know even i suppose if there was another announcement its still pretty insulting so mobile games to me are fun bite-sized kind of fast food junk food that youre really not supposed to take seriously and isnt supposed to be a main part of your diet i consider mobile games to be low tier games made by low tier developers and theres nothing really wrong with that to me i enjoy and play a lot of mobile games for what theyre worth but blizzard is an established company for a very very long time and when they came out with diablo 3 and there was a lot of problems with diablo 3 and there was a lot of hate a lot of drama back then i defended the game quite a bit on the forums and social media and stuff talking about why i thought i could reason with blizzards decisions and why they did certain things like for example the real money trading auction house which was a big thing right people like wtf why is blue doing this oh they just trying to you know cash in on you know the the the market and stuff like that and i argued that i really believed that they were just trying to make a safer environment for trading like they said that they they were whether they were profiting off of that you know majorly i didnt think was the case but maybe they were making some profit but i believe their intentions to be true that they were trying to make things easier for them and for us in regards to trading but we all know how poorly that went down right so ive been defending the game ive defended blizzard not just because im a fanboy but just because i i tried to look at it from certain perspectives that were reasonable and logical but there is no reasonable view from looking at diablo immortal it is it is purely garbage like coming from and not even thats thats the thing – its not even coming from blizzard right this isnt even their game its their title right they given the rights to another company to make this game to all the people saying the diablo community is being unfair or disrespectful that were just being entitled and should be grateful learn the facts and get your thumb on the pulse of this community before you criticize us because this was a tipping point and its not our fault that you dont understand why weve been begging blizzard for years to do more for diablo a game franchise that they seem to barely care about while showering all of their other games with money and resources manpower to develop a near constant stream of updates and expansions look at overwatch look at world of warcraft or or even heroes of the storm for examples of games that just never like have a content drought seemingly at all you know ever you can expect a new expansion even when it does get kind of dry for example in world of warcraft you can expect an expansion to come now thats just not been the case for diablo especially diablo 3 year after year blizzcon after blizzcon weve gotten scraps or nothing at all and now they get on stage here in blizzcon 2018 and tell us that net es not blizzard is in charge of making this new game and on top of that its a mobile only game right the reaction from the crowd was totally justified at blizzcon when the guy asked is this mobile only are these mechanics these new gameplay features that theyre showing off with characters moba only and they said yes that they have no plans for pc and there was booing which is incredibly rare to hear a booing crowd is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any lands a moment to do pc did you guys not have phones yeah you guys and that should tell you something that this isnt just crybaby entitlement and ungrateful this this is a seriously sour taste and everybodys mouth now to the point that it became booing you know bethesda did it right when they announced what was it fallout shelter they did it not on its own right they did it alongside another fallout title its like wow were getting this awesome epic new fallout game plus on the side weve got fallout shelters so its cool its kind of like a little companion you know for our main game they didnt announce that alone and they didnt announce it after a long drought of content but thats whats happening and thats the big difference here between these mobile games right high blues announced uh a diablo to remaster diablo for a diablo 3 expansion pack you know or something then it would have been less drama for sure less insulting and dont even get me started on the the comment by wyatt dont you guys have phones or whatever ii said you know to to the crowd in a very panicky way because thats that thats just as bad if not worse than boshy oaken is arent you thankful rhetoric right like its just man i lost a lot of respect for wyatt after that comment otherwise i think hes a good guy most the time and is doing pretty well with what he has left of a diablo team now were not grateful im sorry but we know what kind of game this is gonna be what kind of game diablo immortal is gonna be what kind of experience we can expect to have on this device which isnt gonna feel nearly as good as a pc or console game and worse i think we know what we can expect from monetization as well this will more than likely not just be a one-time pay and then you play it game like you normally get from diablo no it may very well be and well see just how bad the monetization is for this game how much they try and nickel and dime us for things like potions right or maybe extra uses out of the hegira cube or something like that right thats our thats our biggest fear there are good people at blizzard there are good people on the on the diablo team brandi campbell wyatt chang i still believe in these these people as representatives and as directors more or less of whats going on in diablo right now you know im not angry at these people or the regular grunts doing their job and the modeling and texturing at games or whatever no no its its not i dont think its their fault and i dont i dont its annoying but then i died i cant hate wyatt for being told yeah youre gonna get on stage and youre gonna hype people up for this mobile game whether he likes it or not no im im mad at whoever is calling the shots whoevers pulling it wyatt strings right but the people will maybe behind that person in the shadows who makes the decisions on what gets funding at blizzard and what doesnt based on market research you see what im saying cuz thats whats really going on here right and ive seen that for years and that was that was to me when i saw that perspective to go back to talking about perspectives and reasoning and stuff like that i really felt like that that was what was really going on here blizzard is just not convinced that diablo is as profitable as their other games like world of warcraft like hearthstone which god knows you know how much they make every day off of her stone packs and expansions you know for example but you know like the recent single-player star wars game that was scrapped you know diablo has seemingly been deemed not profitable enough and therefore not worthy of investment its not as flashy competitive has mobas and stuff like that you know to to be in the spotlight of an esports game or whatever which undeniably brings in huge amounts of money to companies when theyre able to pull off these events and get people will hyped up for stuff like that they cant do that with diablo and they know we wont tolerate lube boxes which lately has been getting some backlash thing thank god for that a bit late but finally there is backlash on loot boxes but a mobile game mobile games are still safe arent they like we can criticize them but were well were just elitists right were pc and console elitists were just picking on the little guy right i guess you know we can be discredited we can be dismissed you know when we criticize mobile games you know it meanwhile mobile games are more and more growing in popularity right and there is a sea of diablo clones on the mobile market you think activision and blizzard wants a piece of that pie better believe they do so theyre gonna make their own clone where actually theyre not gonna make it net ease like right lets clarify that lets pay attention to that because blizzard isnt doing it its neddys that theyve given permission and the rights to do this to make another clone one clone to rule them all with the name diablo in it all right its gonna be made by another company while activision blizzard gets a nice cut of the money from the transactions whatever thats gonna be i guess thats just just profitable enough looking right just enticing enough for for them to go ahead and do that all this and more i could say to explain the diablo drama were not entitled were flocking starved and have left in droves to other arpgs to try and find a replacement trying to find something that can help us recapture the feeling of the darkness and the edge and the fun and the story experience that a diablo game brings and some of them have been able to do that yeah some of these companies have been doing damn good at replicating that that feeling like path of exile and the upcoming for now korea and only lost ark right we start paying attention to these games start playing a little bit of grim done and what you know while we wait you know were thinking while we wait well play this and well wait for the next yellow game now we turn around it here another blizzcon what do we see blizzard on stage selling the corpse of the once great king of a rpgs a popular comet that keeps apparently getting deleted and is now spammed constantly on social media especially the diablo immortal trailers says quote no king rules forever my son a quote of course from the world of warcraft cinematic of the fall of arthas cole continues i enjoyed my 20-plus years playing blizzard games but it seems now is the time to admit the soul is gone end quote i guess thats the truth of it yeah once great king of a rpgs that reign is over i guess its been over for a long time some of us still lingering as fans wanted to believe that the king could come back reclaim the throne what do we find we find it which is reclaiming the lowest level of gaming mobile platform its pretty sad actually its really sad and thats the way it is i guess until they find a way to make diablo profitable enough i guess this is the way things are but i guess the silver lining in this is that it gives other companies a chance to to fill in that void that empty space of people that want to see more a rpg action we got path of exile obviously doing very good like i said over in korea lost ark is about to hole man they are about to kick off the most incredible a rpg inspired game isometric camera ive ever seen blizzard youve got a tough fight ahead of you if you do plan i know you got multiple projects for the diablo universe not just diablo immortal but you got ho you got a lot of fight on your hands and you got a lot of work now especially in trying to win us back and trying to help us forget the taste of this betrayal of announcing another outsource companys game with the diablo name on it i wont soon forget in fact i might remember it even more clearly or as clearly at least when that time comes when you finally do decide to make a new diablo game and presented to us well see how grateful we still are huh as if for this video i think ive said my part well see what the future holds but i am definitely not holding my breath for whats to come for the diablo universe thats gonna do it for this video thats all ive got to say for now i still love a rpgs but man does this hurt i still really like blizzard what they do most of the time but and does this hurt well see maybe next blizzcon huh i wont be holding my breath but well see what the future holds let me know what you guys think down in the comments section click the like button might just reach more likes here on this video then diablo mortal reveal trailer ill see you guys around make sure you subscribe more content is on the way thanks again for watching this is kinetic ill see you next time hey just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke [applause]

[..] oh good afternoon everybody now last night that was really tough on diablo immortal any my eyes rightly so but im a really critical person thats my thing thats my stick im sure the rest of the down-low community however have been very lenient with it oh my god hi everybody eats as here from hell vs babyface now last night i brought you a video about my personal reaction to the diablo immortal announcement on mobile you got phone i thought it was terrible in short im paraphrasing her video but go check it out i thought it was terrible i thought its laughable i honest to god thought its a joke when he first said it on screen i thought oh hes kidding now hes gonna do the proper reveal whatever it may be and lets just say it was met by the community with well i [laughter] think the skit at the beginning of the video just showed everything the two hundred thousand down votes to the what six thousand up votes thats like a 97% disapproval rating people do not like now since then and the purpose of this video is theres been more things which have come out which have been sent to community even further and im gonna go through them bit by bit now first of all after the opening ceremony to the olympic blizzcon 2018 they had a whats next for diablo where all they spoke about was diablo immortal ive now watched that this morning completely and ive gone through all the q&a and lets just say the q&a was rough really really rough now when they would came up on stage they gave this field there was wyatt cheng he had a couple of developers with him they had their speaker you know filled to go through not a single sound from the audience none no reaction to anything no reaction to their jokes their silliness their banter nothing the crowd went mild there was just they just did not they did not look like they care they i think were waiting for what was going to be the star of the show the qa and when the qa arrived holi did it go completely off here now you may have seen and we will see in a second two of the big questions and the response more importantly by blizzard on this and this is what i want to talk about because there have been a few people whove been coming out defending blizzard about diablo immortals saying its not its not the developers fold its not the developers fault they just told to do it theyre just doing their jobs first and foremost i havent seen a single person make a personal attack not one i am not seeing anybody having personal attacks against wyatt chang at all peoples anger is directed at the correct source in my opinion which is the nature of the game a mobile regressive diablo beloved franchise game nobodys making personal attacks but while were on the subject of this and defending blizzard absolutely not these people know what theyre doing these people are not innocent princesses theyre not small forms which have just come out of their mothers value and are taking their first tentative steps in life what is this what is this online world i seen yeah these are grown men and women that know exactly what theyre doing they are well paid for it and if theyre sent out to face the lions they are doing their job this is why we have customer service in the world because thats what their pay to do its their job you dont phone up a complaints division of a company and the person on the other end of line says hey look its not me i i didnt make this product dont have a go at me i didnt do this its the its the higher-ups in the company that wont take your call but dont have a go at me thats their job thats what theyre paid for it comes with the praise and it comes with the criticism and if you take the praise you have to take the criticism so there is no defense here you lie down with dogs you get fleas and thats as simple as that so you want to defend this nonsense you defend this nonsense i dont care if these are wonderful lovely people nobody nobody is having a go at that peoples anger is very specific its the nature of the product so lets now get on to the comedy aspect which was the q&a and it started off hard because i think the diablo 2 community were expecting two announcements or hoping there be two announcements possibly a diablo 2 remake possibly but i think most of them from the diablo community people that ive been speaking to were expecting druids to be announced for diablo 3 so the first question was where the druids well here are the druids thats which there was no response there was no answer it doesnt look like theyre being worked on by the sounds of what was going on on stage well its about a vote you know i would vote for dreads i play druid in wow well i i you know i would prefer a witch doctor it doesnt even look like jurors in development people so im really sorry if thats your thing next question whens this going to be ready dont know itll be ready when its ready and before that guy left a microphone he managed to quickly get in and go on a typical blizzard response so the announcing diablo mortal the great new mobile phone progressive game and no no no no no no time at all thats god knows and then a really big question came along how is the production of diablo immortal affecting other diablo projects which are being worked upon great question and why it chang said no response were working on other stuff but no response there was nothing that they said there were they were not satisfying the answers and people were getting more and more agitated and then this question happened this guy steps up on stage and says a perfectly legitimate question and just listen to the response and the response is another reason why i have goose egg goose egg sympathy for the development team right here so lets just listen to what he says ice curious i see a lot of mechanics that we kind of been begging for in diablo 3 in this is there any plans to make this playable on pc or is this strictly mobile forever are there any yeah this the current plan is to be on mobile both android and ios we dont have any plans at the moment to do pc [music] did you guys not have fun yeah you guys did they just get woke bliss did you just get woke again you does not have phones you not have phone you have phone you have phone wow wow and that is why you have zero zero sympathy for the development team just the absolutely oblivious response to that question do you not have a phone this may want this mase look like the future of money to companies but is this the future of gaming no no a five and a half inch screen where youre trying to turn and twiddle and no this right here in front of me this pc layout this is in some way or form always gonna have a massive massive form when it comes to gaming people want to be sat down relaxed they want to have great functionality tools like keyboards and mouse and joy pads for some people as well people dont want to be squinting squinting on a five and a half inch screen pushing stuff with finicky controls with their flock pingas excuse my french and so when the person asks a perfectly legitimate question in a very passive manner he was he was on his back with his belly exposed with his paws in the air saying oh my body languages is is as submissive as theyre gonna come and your responses are you got found absolutely no sympathy whatsoever and that is the attitude of blizzard right there in a nutshell and so after this which got my ira oh did it get my arab somebody step forward some say his name is actually duke nukem because this guy has got balls of steel just was wondering is this an out of season april fools joke mic drop [music] is this an out of season april fools joke and you know why he asked that question because it sounds like one hes he yeah is he being sarcastic yeah hes he being condescending yeah but you know what hes also being very truthful and hes saying what a lot of people are very likely thinking and you can tell that from the response that he got from the actual audience itself when he said that they is stunned silence because people are absolutely gobsmacked by what theyre seeing with this announcement this is only the future of gaming to companies that want to make a ton of money in microtransactions this isnt the future of gaming when it comes to a true gamer not at all absolute nonsense and so what they said was perfectly perfectly legitimate and if that takes the people on stage off guard again i got no sympathy if youre coming out with a project like this then you better be prepared if you came out on stage expecting everybody and this is the problem with the circle-jerk which goes on in blizzard and the community if youre expecting that because its blizzcon everybody is gonna cheer and love you and everythings gonna be roses and deuces and aces and all that – as if you come out with a product like this that takes a beloved franchise and essentially craps all over it so you can make a quick buck and well get to that very soon indeed again you have to accept the consequences now when it came to other questions just nothing will it will it be hard chord mode no will there be other difficulties extreme mode all these insane mode whatever its called in diablo we dont know why dont they know because mobile gaming isnt set up for this kind of player this isnt why people game thats why they need the functionality of their keyboards in their mice and their tools and their pads and stuff like that because things like this arent conducive the reason why they said theres probably no hardcore mode what if you get a disconnection on your phone and you lose your character you know its way more easy way way way more easy that youre gonna get disconnected on a mobile device than you are at home with a wide connection way more the only reason youre gonna get disconnected with a wire connection is if something intrinsically goes wrong at the backend of whichever your isp is but with this black spots you know dips all over the place so mobile gaming isnt the future because it has too many limitations its a limitation on what modes you can play theres limitations what difficulties that you can play and one question which was not asked whether it is filtered i dont know but it certainly wasnt addressed was what is the pay model of this game going to be and before anyone of you think well they probably havent got around to think about that as know i speak to a lot of game developers and there are a lot which ive spoken to who are pretty deal it disillusioned with the industry and one thing that i hear off them is whenever it comes to creating a new game and youre sat down and youre just ready for the first picture of ideas going back and forth pretty much the first question which ever gets asked now in todays current genre of gaming is how do we monetize this product and i very much doubt that diablo immortal is any different i think that was one of the first questions if not the first question that was asked when it came to the concept and a construction of this game on mobile how do we monetize so theyve got pretty much an idea about what theyre gonna do in terms of microtransactions and monetary things whether or not they switch things up based off feedback i dont know but lets just say the qa was a complete and utter disaster for them now lets just look at some gameplay from diablo immortal and im picking out something very specific here this is the barbarian so here they go the barbarian going in do look at this look at this look at that okay now lets just jump to something else this is a game called endless gods it says endless of the gods endless gods by netties thats the same company thats making the news and lets just have a look at some of the footage from this game shall we each cut oh oh oh oh oh wait that that looked that looked identical to the barbarian huh isnt that weird now let me just shift the image here lets just have a look at this sir you i outlay here on the right hand side of this screen here we go sever have a look at that now lets bring back the the diablo video and lets just jump to the oh oh lets just jump to the oh wait a minute this is the exact same ui as well so the same company thats making diablo immortal that made endless gods is using the same animations is using the same layout this is a reskin of an existing mobile game by netties now this was approached wyatt chang was approached by ign reputable ign im sorry this video shouldnt have jokes in it he they were they approached and they asked him because i think they wanted to address this saying that chang responded to claims that diablo immortal may be a reskin by saying the following weve been working with netties games from the beginning as a partnership to create everything in diablo immortal ok we have artists on our side they have artists on their side and we work together as a team as a partnership to create everything about diablo immortal the environments the characters the skills the story well thats not what it looks like here i mean sure youve got artists which are gonna make it look like a diablo game you have story board its who are gonna create the cutscenes for a diablo story and you have the environment teams to create your environments but the skills looked identical the playstyle looks identical theyre taking an identical model for an existing game to make your new and progressive and the future of gaming is mobile diablo immortal what an absolute crock of sh1te and then folks then comes the final thing you see blizzard throughout the whole course of blizzcon theyve said how much they love the fans how much theyre listening to the fans this already shows a complete lack of listening understanding of a community is this a remake of diablo 2 to bring it into the modern age a beloved beloved game diablo 2 when i was younger diablo 2 when you said those words it was as if you were saying the mecca of gaming that is how revered diablo 2 is you hear these stories about how items would sell on ebay and stuff from diablo 2 for ridiculous money because of how much they were sought after and how beloved the game was yeah all these amazing things so you have people hoping maybe that theyre do that thats what the community was hoping no okay all right fair enough youve got other things maybe youre you are looking to the future and not into the past maybe diablo 2 is habits day then maybe you are looking forward so what about the current product at least add druids bringing druids bringing a new class to diablo 3 no no no no there this is what the community has been asking for wanting blizzard arent listening theyre not listening because they they dont care they have their agenda its their agenda its the beat of their drum that they go towards but heres the coup de gras blizzard listen to your feedback so much they respect your feedback so much theyre in the comment section for the diablo immortal reveal video the one that has six thousand likes and two hundred thousand dislikes theyve been removed critical comments from the chat and im not talking people go ah dont grow yourself im talking about legitimate concerns that people have legitimate disappointments that people have any critical comment that gets up voted is pulled down nyx iam had a just a regular post weve had some good news about wow weve had some good news about hearthstone some good news about heroes of the storm i have never heard that game no this is really disappointing this leaves a bad taste in the mouth mobile isnt the future of game legitimate concerns comment gone loads of comments just getting deleted deleted deleted if they repost them deleted if they somebody else repost them deleted that is how much they care about your feedback that is how much they are listening to your feedback they are deleting your comments and your criticisms so diablo immortal isnt just a joke it isnt just a disappointment it is such an egregious reskin phony of a game that is designed for nothing more than to exploit a franchises great name and to exploit a community that is surrounding that because they think hey if we stick diabolo on a mobile device then it will take the demote diablo community to that mobile device and to those microtransactions theres a an old saying and im an old guy theres an old saying that i want to leave this video with you can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink and the diablo 2 community they dont want to drink anything at all so hope you enjoyed the video if you did do get a thumbs up and also subscribe to the channel follow me on social media and twitter for live streaming links there in the description box down below and ill be back with some more stuff very soon you take care bye for now

The Alien Anthropological Insanity Of Ancient Esports Transcripts

RND/ to consider the critical perspective of a visiting alien anthropologist from the impossibly distant near future, and the near impossible difficulty of trying to culturally interpret ancient eports video transcripts – sample text as follows;

in north america circ might be the hardest opera to ill apart from hitting flick after flick after flick the real magic with circ soughing is just how well setup he is every round with energies to best fraggers anchoring be cirque fugly and daps synergizing a variety of ways to both cover him and dangerous parts of the map while also using him to fall back safely as we can see with stringent communication circus offered up seamless transitions to and from each angle as well as the freedom to explore a hunch because he has 100% faith in his teammates positioning with coordinated utility and a deep game plan circ is able to implement a number of looks at a versus very strong attempts at pushing him back interestingly enough in situations where the site is run over circ will usually fall back for the retake and even then uses his teammates to have the most impact possible now heres one of the coolest set pieces that energy do that allows surf to clear out short beat and stairs all while only focusing on himself ethan mollys short tunnel so sir can cleanly run up and smoke the expected short molotov next he peaks behind it without hesitation to make sure its not some aggressive play de wardes monster then ethan neighs door on his call and he ills config backstairs calls that b is clean for the rotate and gets back to a and time to ill the plan protocols help circ look like a mastermind but as awareness is paramount to his consistency as well even in high-pressure situations search on the ball in terms of understanding whether or not hes safe and finds creative ways to pick apart swarms without eating the flick though hes got that in spades as well hes a role player and a star and energy make it difficult to open him up its clear that energy value his impact at circ delivers by maintaining a delicate balance of aggression and awareness its remarkable to witness this level of maturity and a player whose can only imagine how far energy will go with the attention to detail theyve implored with circuit the helm thanks watching the video you got this far you see me so you mustnt enjoyed it and we have more for you because you check it out over here over there videos everywhere

this is exist but not n ip exist phase exists playing against his previous line up right here in ecs season its not every day you get to see a player outplay his old lineup but we actually got that chance right here in this round so why dont we go ahead and take a closer look this was around where both teams wanted to take over stairs and that quickly turned into a for v in ni ps favor an interesting moment for exists because hes already learned a couple of things the first thing you learned is that ni p and stairs which means they may have sent someone short this is a common pro level set up because of how easy it is for both the stairs and short guys to help each other out secondly hes learned that forests the other player typically abbey had died in the scuffle this information while fresh is when it is most useful so here a key frag comes up as track and extends just enough that exists who is patiently waiting can ill him get right also pitches in some info and sends off another clue by spamming monster in hopes of a lucky trade but its no good and exists proceeds to use that gunfire as a lead this is a central moment because exist seems to know that there is a chance here to end the round but conversely he must also know that he can be easily blamed for overextending if hes wrong if you pinpoint what exists here is now it becomes clear where his head was at get right is making a plate awards short and also lightly by himself because we know to potential b players were lost already calling on his memory of how ni p have fought for short control in the past may have influenced his confidence in what play get right was going for as weve seen them fight in waves but anyway he pulls the trigger and slides through the smoke here carefully making sure to entertain any doubts for the sake of safety once hes eliminated most of the potential side angles he completes the flank on get right leaving him dead in cold blood can use that what just happened after this they have two gay men ip a bit more than theyd like to because the aum was left back and spawn but this plate was definitely a cool moment that deserved a second look exist has shown himself to be one of the very best subs you could possibly ask for especially when filling in for a shadow as great as olafs although his time is limited im sure were all looking forward to seeing what more face can do with exists and hopefully this wont be the last time he can get crafty against his old team hey stranger appreciate you watching the video and if you are craving some more weve got a couple more in the back try to click right over here or here go ahead you wont hey stranger appreciate you watching the video and if you are craving some more weve got a couple more in the back just got to click right over here or here go ahead

denying vision outside with an e box and sandwich smoke is a cost-effective way to seduce the defense into making bad decisions for just you can turn a small choke point into an intimidating one and still have three smokes left over for a nice layered execute for years teams have been throwing these two standard smokes as a means of baiting grenadines selling fakes and even creating misdirection finding new ways to innovate with these two already important smokes is critical to keep the defense guessing as transmeta evolves over time this round from phase and ecs this season showed us an example of that innovation with a deceptively simple lurk plate from rain and niko naturally this round starts off with a sandwich and e bog smoke the idea here is that the standard outside smokes will appear to be a distraction as the core of phase move towards iv since the two smokes outside are called first it seems to virtus pro that this round was about taking attention away from ivy when in reality phase are about to abuse t main and the vision that these smokes block off now this area that reigns about to take for the offense is highly sought out because it compromises a lot of these positions outside and because snacks in this match had been so persistent about denying control of it phase have had to become more creative on the approach so niko flashes rain out as soon as theres commotion at ivy completely concealed from any of the eyes of virtus pro this would normally be the point in the ground where snacks would peek back with an op but its too distracted by all that iv presence the denial of vision from their sandwich smoke now comes into play as rain takes his final few steps towards heck as soon as the op shot from snax is heard here at ivy we can see rain processing how he can most safely play this and waits for snacks to make his rotation around to old bum before calling for a flash from his support player in team maine now although bialy manages to trade this whats gonna be surprising for virtus pro is how rain managed this lurk imagine being virtus pro and seeing these two smokes after this round they can mean anything from a two tiered execute to a fake two inside and now even a quick heck lerk is on the table it takes a fluid sandwich player to know what they can and cant get away with when the smokes come cascading over the site and on rounds teams dont want to play close up theyll risk being opened up to plays like the one that range is made the e box and sandwich smoke provide a number of offensive options that are all staple in the meta and its clear looking at the simplicity of this lurk that theres more innovation that can be had its a cheap investment that seems to have evergreen value on this iteration of trane and im sure its only a matter of time before we see their value be pushed even further hey stranger appreciate you watching the video and if you are craving some more weve got a couple more in the back just got to click right over here or here go ahead

kenne ass is a player that has always and will always be in the conversation for best opera of all time he truly is something else possible spots in there he goes not advice he wasnt they connector there he is at moments in his career in particular during his time on clan mystic and then on the underwhelming but still fabled titan lineup was even feared by players like olofmeister i mean this guy has and has had the sauce so its kind of come full circle we have existence who was hung out to dry by the ten other top baguettes in europe and is now on a team with him shocks jocks his best friend and the fresh blood of body who seems to have kind of squeaked past scream during the whole roster shuffle so what effect does this have on kenny is it gonna be kenny s is that level of performance possible to replicate this late in the csgo i mean online at ec s hes played extremely well lots of key games and those very familiar mind-bendingly fast flicks and positionally within the system that shock sled isnt doing a whole lot different within his team on defaults he hangs out with the core of the roster typically throws his support grenadine and comes in third and that really hasnt changed with existence hes even got the aum sometimes which i find a bit strange for an opera but just kind of shows that hes been playing for the men round in the post plant where id say hes actually quite artistic with the way that he slides in and out of fights but again this is kind of how hes always been used in a recent interview kenny has said hes never disliked the way that existence ran his teams even though players in the past have felt differently this is probably because kenny has always had the longest leash and the most freedom and the best support around him so itll probably be on kenny and not existence to show us it you can bring back some of that level statistically kenny s is still recovering from his february spike but in the ec s finals a lot of us were getting flashbacks maybe hes in a comfort zone honeymoon period new system of which some of the changes are less clear but one way or the other i dont think it would hurt to have kenny s carrying the torch for france out of the darkness proving that you can have a stable successful top french team with just one key star player instead of four hey stranger appreciate you watching the video and if you are craving some more weve got a couple more in the back just got to click right over here or here go ahead

hi im launders and welcome to the pilot of playbreaker breaking plays broken down

every episode will consist of an overview followed by player povs and then grenadine lineups so that you can understand how top tier strats and then use them yourselves

today well be looking at flawless double fake that virtus.pro pulled off on cloud in the group stage of iem katowice the key points in the round will be: skadoodle getting faked out times rendering him useless on the other side of the map

how the b fake is sold by early round nades from neo and follow up smokes that block autimatics line of sight on b apts that ultimately incentivize skadoodle to stay there long enough that he cant rotate back how n thing gambled on pushing top mid for info and how if pasha had made any noise whatsoever how the round would have likely been compromised and probably easily won by a quick big flank

now lets watch it play out

skadoodle starts out the round by going to window hearing pasha shoot connector with no top mid smoke in sight giving him a good reason to post hope for a bad flash or careless peek until his attention is drawn to a by the right side site smokes thrown by snax and taz

he then momentarily considers the potential for a b hit as neo had thrown a nade and molly a few moments prior and fully rotates into ct after not immediately hearing a threat

its at this point neo and byali throw the rest of their nade sets into b getting skadoodle to completely buy into his initial fear that it was a b hit all along effectively pulling him so far away from the action that he as an awper is made useless because of the rotation length and potential threat of virtus.pro having ct control and peeking him

heres the initial nade and molotov from neo that both helped to sell the follow-up execute as well as discourage anyone from jump-spotting or pushing for information too early which wouldve definitely ruined the fake and probably lost them the round

further this planted the seed in skadoodles head that “oh it actually was b” as we noted with his indecision after watching him rotate out of window a little bit ago

now the double fake begins

right side a site smokes are thrown by snax and taz at around a minute forty byali and neo follow up with theirs about seconds later and automatic is drawn back to the site long enough that byali and neo are able to sneak out of underpass safely

now the first engagement of the round begins with automatic going for but if we consider that he was pulled from a way more favourable position earlier its apparent that these smokes were the only reason that a trade was possible in the first place

beyond this engagement we see that the aum going down with cts on the wrong side of the map was enough to discourage c from even attempting the retake but before we wrap this up we cant forget about the fact that j cole went platinum with no features and that cloud had complete mid control but were late on counts due to a lack of information brought to you by the walk key

heres something that would be a very understated part of the round if you hadnt watched the demo

if neo and byali dont walk underpass on this execute automatic wouldve instantly called out the a split and probably wouldve shut down connector by himself

also if pasha took one step after all that time sitting back watching the top mid push passively n thing wouldve been able to fast flank and call that it was a right away

in conclusion there were a obviously a lot of cool things to be extracted from this one round and probably even more if you go watch it yourself

if you liked the video please make sure to share it and before i go as promised here are the smoke lineups used by virtus.pro in this double fake

today we look look at a t side default that turns into a delicately orchestrated b crush from cloud

our topic of discussion will be abusing the man advantage with map control

im launders and this is episode of playbreakers this is round from the group stage of the pgl major where cloud beat north on mirage with a stellar t side despite losing both pistols

in this round well look at how cloud setup after stewie finds ills early on followed by the adjustment that north makes with msls information and finally why cloud sealed this up even though north made a smart adjustment having had only players to work with

so to set the stage mid default from cloud nothing special from north

n thing throws a smoke before they walk underpass in order to cause a distraction and limit norths line of sight at b

we know that smokes into b can be used to lure cat players back to the site

in this case it didnt seem to have an effect but maybe it would have if magisk was more aggressive in the first place

once stewie gets into connector hes faced with one of the strongest crossfires of any map between ticket and cat

they dont smoke connector with the hope a ct might walk into this fight a little unprepared and are rewarded

its common on t side to look for fights that are even / as ts can stay grouped with the aum and pick a site together but cts have to fan out across the map making each individual more valuable

so at this moment if they have ills and are setup for an a split why not hit the site? the reason they dont is because stewie got one of those ills on cat

if it was their intention to hit b they would have

a however can have up to players with more on flex meaning that rushing in couldve jeopardized their advantage completely

with this in mind and their newfound connector control n thing becomes the most important player on the map for c

because stewie hurt their stairs player n thing knows he can advance quickly and maybe catch an extra player off guard

when nobody peeks he works his way into window which well later see puts a neat bow on the round

also although it isnt relevant to this round because cajun was too wise one subtle advantage of n things position here is being able to hear players rotating

typically you dont walk through ct when going from a to b and so even just waiting in this position can tell your team a lot especially if they throw smokes to bait rotates

at this moment north have made a very interesting adjustment in response to going down two players early on

msl began at under balcony and moved towards close a ramp but when stewie hurt his jungle player he felt unsafe about the prospect of an a split and so pushes into a ramp and holds for control

he hears skadoodle drop and a few seconds later and tells cajun b to rotate

it looks like he assumed that if this a ramp player made noise and nobody has pushed connector even though two of their players right there they may have made other plans

in a round where they still had alive a drastic rotation like this might not have been called but it ends up being a smart move

cajun b walks past the back of window and watches it with conviction from market

now we can really see the impact of having a man advantage and how even though msl has gotten some info its not enough to save the round

c with mid control get autimatic into ladder room n thing ready for a window flank and shroud to basically bait any last attention to a- doing his job whether he gets a ill or not

the frags arent all that important

even with two players here expecting b the aum is safely escorted through b halls and neither splitting player pushes their choke point a moment too soon

n thing and autimatic both activate themselves once stewie and skadoodle are spotted giving k nfig and cajun too much to worry about to be able to justify covering alternate choke points

simple stuff but regularly messed up when pro teams arent communicating at a really high level

as the igl im assuming stewie deserves a lot of credit for this round

the farther away from your teammates you are the more difficult it is to keep each player in line with the bigger picture

the key to a round like this working is nobody overextending gaining more ground safely and finally timing your pushes at the perfect moments

this round is an ideal example of why having map control is constantly stressed by pro players in interviews even though your average player doesnt know what that really means or looks like

a big lesson from this round is that v s are lost when individuals over extend because they lose sight of the bigger picture

this is what it looks like to be points on a web even when youre each individually juggling threats across the map

[music] okay hello everybody on youtube and twitch this is mel sports vs

the renegades at iem sydney and we are not here to dog the boys in fact were here to highlight i think some of the great plays that renegades made because this games came so damn close and i guess i dont know if i should spoil her or not

i mean i feel like a lot of people know the result of the match at the end of the day but maybe we just dont say anything and talk about it as it goes on very strong very strong map for for mousesports i personally dont think that this is a very strong map for the renegades i feel like they have a lot of stuff that they need to work on as my personal opinion watch them play other teams at ecs but you know to a pistol a pistol to kick it off its definitely the right way to do things you still coming out with not a great series are mad for him overall but come in coming close to the end of the game we saw i saw the some of the rerun of this match and he had a few very important ills very very very important ills so adr is one thing but i dont think that its everything as we know nifty obviously those fast reactions a good crosshair placement finds one easy head probably talked through the pistol round and then on the first eco i can go for intros and stuff like that so yeah renegades have moving into the into the last couple of months suffered a roster change was they suffered because they lost nifty to liquid and a nifty was sorry theyre all they lost nat fly to liquid and that was a big l i feel like but honestly theyve recovered well jacob has added a lot to their team and i think natha is very special player and it was gonna be hard to replace but jacob has definitely done a great job definitely done a great job and theyve had a shaky online season overall but what matters more than land nothing here in sydney they have a you know crowd that crowd advantage but i dont think its that big of an advantage and i definitely think that it cuts both ways you know even when the crowd is enthusiastic for you they can just make it harder to play in general because theyre so loud i mean i dont want any other way i think its obviously fantastic to hear the support of your nation if youre confident when youre playing in a land setting but certainly they had a good time on overpass and just a good land overall because theyre a good team and i think that much is definitely true so a lot of players spotted on banana they make the hard rotate back i dont think we have x-ray on so im gonna throw it on and hopefully that words and i need a way to be able to turn that on i forget what i have to do big john by x thatll work maybe maybe somebody can help me out im pretty sure that this is supposed to work plus radio ok unlucky i dont know whats going on ah ok ok that should work we should be good i think we have x-rays on now sorry for that small delay look at robs our offices hair looks like its about to fall off have you guys ever try to balance a broom on your finger thats what it looks like thats what it looks like with rosss hair mmm-hmm boost it with a wall you can see the cross two logs pretty good head angle should be somewhat safe this is obviously an angle that can get nated really easily right on the corner molotov actually comes out first hes not gonna move off it thats pretty interesting i mean they he doesnt have a lot to lose because the systems go so its nice that he actually stayed up there sometimes if you dont respect a grenadine you can be offered up a frag and on a rifle round that might not be the best idea but on an eco like this you should you should take more thirty to forty percent fights more use more thirty to forty percent fights are justified for sure so another anti-eco out brent gets playing these quite well i mean mousesports are playing into their hands because theyre pushing up early some teams respond definitely differently to pressure being in a v playing passively etc some teams if you dont you dont give them that open and ill and antico theyre gonna make a mistake as i get scared some teams will be fine when you hard rotate here we have that graveyard and sight stack rafa comes out with first ill three actually hoes definitely appreciate the arch blitz i feel like teams dont do this enough sending people for the wrap is very important and this round could get turned on his head its actually sunny as soon as he hears jks take a step he finds he sees an opportunity pushes through that smoke no problem but at the end of the day i think whats most important is three ills that robs got that would have been too successful of a couple of anticos for them gonna have to do what they actually mousesports dont have that much money chris j with the mp there theres no one in the world whos better that with an mp than chris j part of a reason i mean the gun is actually a laser at for a while it was hard to justify its like why not buy an um its got really high armor pen and its whatever bucks why not buy an empty nine and the impelling is still really good so very relevant but the um pn mp is actually really strong too especially versus rifles if you have to do that its one tournament recently where chris had so many ills or some immediate hauls pop drop sitting in small pit or im sorry big pit and goes for two stays alive this wolf crossfires maintained ste co with the fall masuka himself and it wasnt actually a hull swap it was a lane split and i really really hate lane splits just to really hate them its like one of the one of the fundamental approaches to inferno is like including a lane split into your play i think that if you have in certain situations like if you are low numbers meaning you dont have enough smokes to smoke library arch or if you feel like theyre gonna do a double arch set up potentially as a read a lane split can be good but in a v i think if youre gonna go towards a the with the crossfire between pit and and site is just way too strong and you should try to avoid that at all costs and try to spend some effort pushing the arch guy back if you know hes there so that they dont feel so comfortable standing on all these angles on the site oh my god i minimize the game standing on the site on all these angles looking down like this right you dont want this default guy to be able to take this head angle over default while this while the pic crossfires here its so strong its so strong smoke this smoke this push the arch guy back to here send three arch send one hauls to take contact lets send the smart guy holes because hes got hard position to play and then ive seen renegade to do this listen if t down lane with the op and thats perfect so one one-way teams commonly respond the pressure is if somethings getting pushed they push the other thing dust to if theres a mid to be split sometimes if people started pushing be tunnels when they know that is probably three out mid to in tune to be through the tunnel and so theyll push one half of the split to make it a little bit more fair and without the extra arch presence you remove the need to do that jacobs sitting here at the bottom of banana this is a very precarious situation i think jacob has the i has the understanding that there might be someone who has push but chris has gone all the way through i have no idea if he was just checking on radar to be able to know when to spam or if that smoke was just coming up and he decided let me just put some bullet down but it seemed like he was confident that someone was there it certainly seemed like he was confident hows the crossfire up admit so what can renegades do smoke off arch to take mid control and the ulcer is actually gonna have molly to delay this this is nice not only that but he goes ahead and petes mid and because they didnt actually put any pressure there hes its basically cancelling out that smoke oh my god and i dont think he lined that up on purpose but he still exploited it hmm and thats pretty much where you call it not gonna be an easy frag to get the surround becomes drastically harder when you lose the opening ill when you lose banana control and i was gonna say like no sports vs

navi i cant remember what tournament it was as recent but that was once some of the most high-level inferno that weve seen a professional counter-strike in a long time melissa last i was marseille yeah i was marseille and thats because most sports know how to play men properly they know how to play banana properly this should be a very hearty side for renegades who certainly are exploitable money-wise theyre not looking too sharp were running out to early b i guess its kind of a force they decided to just go headfirst through smoke with the ump and dont actually find a ill did they save money on this round it looks like they didnt wow okay these rounds really arent gonna come for free there is an argument though to throw in those banana rushes with your with your lead spawn because they can beat a lot of the early molotov damage if that if that malli goes down and your best bond is running the entire way they can depending on what the ct spawns work is the same guys are gonna go be every round that you can get lucky and get ahead of it you can also smoked the last molotov and try to push through and it can get a little bit random but because cts theyre actually throwing more than one written aide usually theyre throwing them all top down is throwing a flash throwing a nade and theyre doing it in certain orders it actually takes some time for them to get set up and if you dont respect that you can sometimes catch somebody off-guard its a pretty incredible frag for nifty around they probably shouldnt win and chris is looking sharp as heck very confident bursts of the a kay what were gonna have a timeout see this is around where its like i guess because they have the op they wanted to dip by behind it but now theyre in a really weird spot theyre actually for run loss they save this next round theyre gonna try to pull up some kind of eco strat whats very common to do here is a hauls pop or you can get super close to where the aum is throw a flash from layne that pops like around here and then have all your guys try to jump out with a smoke on the balcony the smoke works in a bunch of ways one of those ways is it stops you guys from getting molotovs you cant molotov a smoke it also makes it hard to see from as a cts like which sort of switch spots you have to watch on the smoke can someone jump out like this like get wrightwood or can they get into pit are theyre just gonna jump straight up this way you know and this was one thing that snax does a lot by himself because he trusts he geo jump out and many different in many different ways and its hard to stop so as er takes a spawn again a right-click flash to delay him from moving and sunny as holding his ground and poor is looking good support flash goes in and he wasnt a fine spot with all that hp you wouldnt expect them to move this is a super strong way to ill people who try to shoulder peak especially when you have that off there and chris can fall off first stiga can be right behind them to get those ills if they decide to wide swing or trade and they continue to be aggressive and again chris can fall back easily you can kind of see where the communication lies with crescents tico like if hes gonna decide to go aggressive stick who knows exactly how to support him and basically goes off the sign of his gun hit or miss a good flick from oscar we have seen drops the already a very consistent graveyard slash hit player but i mean you know this is to but mousesports have so much more money than the renegades sir any gates are gonna have max loss next round but they you know im certainly they want to opt interesting to see here is mouse ports have all prioritized one a chi grenadine over two flashes man i was quite the flick hub innate into all to finish what he started some people some people would have been scared off by that spam chris he saw he saw frag in his minds eye this is a really tight spot oh my god of course he hits that noscope no friend in sight malta behind him to make sure that they couldnt help him out and another disaster for the renegades as they basically get melted in their default each frag following the next definitely one of those situations where you want to see what would have happened if this one ill went the other way but even at the point where as err could have hurt chris j i dont think that there was a chance for they say not a good chance for the renegades to win its very powerful for an op to use a smoke down and mid to peek into the stairs at boiler kind of crack peek it and check for anybody walking down because its not often you send your off as a eraser into into halls you have seen that duel happen though it was kind of weird a tcs it seems like its just becoming meta so some teams are sending their off there to ill the other oper who might otherwise be playing arch we could see the pre-emptive smoke to allow oscar to fall back it also kind of disarms the erasers who are coming through and there it is swing is out three people are spotted oscar is lucky to have hit that fine head and remaining men have been exposed on their way to be their offices he does sits in his pit plays his position and the pause is called this one is a pause to figure out what they should do here on their next rifle round so two things would definitely want to see more of they did the a split with our trap on the anti-eco like to see that on a rifle rounds another thing is a legacy delayed banana control theyve gone aggressive on bananas so many times and most sports are smart about this i mean theyre gonna use not so much utility versus the renegades on banana just because the writing is have been rushing it over and over again loosing their player right away so this is this can be kind of a mind game but if im mouths words im not throwing that many names down banana and if im the renegades im not taking the data quickly just because theyve been this should be conditioned to taking all of that early made damage they kind of i feel like most sports have like kind of a free round well they dont have to use too much you theyve actually decided to spend use the majority their players to go up alt take it slowly i definitely want to see them come back to the banana before this round is over wouldnt wouldnt totally be against it you know a straight up our trap if they want to go for it just dont do dont do a lane split here but i definitely like this approach we see like all these utilities getting expelled from mel sports but yeah okay theyre gonna executing right now but yeah i didnt yeah okay theyre gonna take back control this is great now they go back to b this is good this is good chris is actually started to fall back its very standard flash to push him off for the damage for free and it seems like mouse boards have just feigned it they they were hoping that no one and push all the way down so this is a great play from yeah great play from mousesports showing us why that much map control pays off but oh boy you know this this is a lane split they did do a good job of making it difficult for steek oh and this our first eco and robs to play together with the smokes down on pit the issue was that someone threw a flash that ended up favoring ste cohens d co when he was on blind could get two ills almost got three so there is definitely a world where in renegades get the trades on the side we get an after planet situation but not sports when the win the round off the back of good information and oh and also robs abusing their lane smokes that ones kind of unfortunate but i think we see renegades moving in the right direction now earlene a down banana my mouse board same thing like not too many needs right away they really havent even eaten they havent even be used i dont think im all tough for offices that a he used his so this is great utility uses from from mel sports from mel sports who they know that or any kids are really scared nothing theyre doing is working they also know that they are low if they decide to buy because im not sure if they got the plant last round it seems crazy that theyre able to get an off with and all these needs without it but i dont remember them putting the bone down but either way they had enough money to get this hmm and from here what do they do its a nice its nice adjustment nifty going halls at the op can be unexpected great combat offer up close you can be very consistent in unfavorable situations but im a sports being very careful here not to do anything more than they need to testing mid a little bit but now ive actually decided to fall all the way back so a bunch of map troll simmons conceded never a big fan of this but i guess because they have to ops that actually helps them out so a top banana theyre gonna hear this banana clearing flash theyre gonna get some info mousesports have to decide to tighten all the way up this is a weird situation seconds remaining and were a little bit low on nate but sunny still got his molotov so i got to run through this four shots missed i wont actually matter that much or will it sonny somehow gets opted i dont know from where or oh my god nifty off this teammate thats what happened not enough time to put the aum down so i guess in a e i mean mouse wards not seeing a ill decided to slowly turtle up more and more and that actually made renegades kind of uncomfortable because clearly they want to execute a little bit earlier but they also seem to want to get a ill first and because they werent able to find one no matter how hard they tried that just played into mousesports his favor so it was a good call for them to fall back and recede into their safest angles and i think when the time was down as well as it was they just thought alright well youve crossed this threshold in time where if you go now were probably gonna be able to get enough trades to make this difficult to plan at least but were not gonna give you that easy opening ill so you can rush our side so they kind of starve starve them out in a sense mousesports calling a kris i guess calling a fantastic game were gonna get by the half by interesting kind of going for two / wives where they get a couple of aks hourly panetta controls not looking too crispy but as our finally is finally is able to get a ill at least some banana try not to say able so i try to avoid just now because i say able and it doesnt say it sounds weird like you dont really say that conversationally as or is able to get a ill strange thing to say so its such a weird thing that else casters do you say we say things in ways that you wouldnt say them normally but i mean i guess the casting is it isnt necessarily natural but still i want to say that work secures i could say secures yeah you guys can be my at thesaurus hmm sob hit works out they i dont know if if we just saw an off go down in b but thats one reason why its he might might use a might might sacrifice information and sitting there spots as opposed to go and look and clear things out and look for ills but because it mouse ports is money and the fact theyre gonna move in the last two rounds they know that they can just any ills they get are going to dig heavily into the very shallow pockets is that the renegades have but actually not actually now theyre actually just falling back i think they they definitely have enough money to buy no matter what so why not go for these ills oh i see so theyre not giving a way to push out and rops is actually going to be the one to kind of just be hops across ct spawn now one matters so if im five miles i dont change much if im the renegades so we do now oh i make sure i dont get fast flanked effects now if i want to go a so i might do something similar to the last a take but instead of kind of fake clearing banana definitely at least clearing the bottom banana this area close left and also over here by the logs instead of just throwing the flash and then falling back because mousesports took full advantage of that last time whoo they leave okay chris use here this actually gonna work a lot better if they do this we know that they are here to try to take top mid control i hope for the renegades they they dont necessarily get a ill they dont get hurt they in the clear out top mid but it seems like mousesports will probably fight for it while tops come down this is the shine opera way or anyone away from trying to peak boiler sonny making sure that this wont be free as our runs through the smoke but its a date man you heard the reload and thats exactly what he wanted big oof a great setup for male sports smoke no this goes down to fame the beer at but its actually not going to you be useful at all because we have a man holding down ct spawn making sure no one can go through and another round where because mousesports go and tested on banana they have no reason to rotate out early player spotted and all his tough spot to be in cant really expect success in a situation like this with a move like that again almost had the right idea almost had the right idea surprise that mess ports dont clean up moving into the second half so thats thats also actually gonna be quite interesting for me for me poof i said big oof thats the biggest its one player whos not scared of anybody who doesnt afraid of no one thats oscar this guy always has a deadpan look on his face never looks like hes about to hit the fastest flick of his life until someone appears on his screen and then does and never never has respect for any team hes playing against which is always good for mouse for its sunny with the yellow push through ct spawn very warranted considering they have they had a man advantaged chris shays here something you throw in once in a while you its similar to pushing a jungle smoke on mirage on an a hit where you can do that once or twice per half maybe but you dont do that you just dont do it every time and heres a situation where theyve been so dominant every single round okay lets throw one in lets just throw in the cte flash push to the smoke its very strong its hard to stop it works especially well when theres a lot of time id love not a lot of time remaining on the clock im gonna fast forward to do this cuz my ghetto demo you i could hit next round i know i could sunny says have fun its very good manners yeah still it from the halls its not necessarily trapped this is a tough decision whys it such its such a tough position of being you want that ill but you dont want to get slapped and for the glocks they have all these different depths and angles that they can play with to try to shoot you and you just dont want to get hurt in that situation or its an easy a hit not sure about sports through that second spoke it would be kind of interesting go straight jumps across to make space jks looking for the jump up cant secure his ill need more words like that able secure hit me with some more synonyms please ooh retakes on nifty catches the jump shot i swear you might you might have a better chance of living and not jumping away from nifty and uh the gloves not very good is it but in the hands of sunny and might be not quiet still a wins the pistol again he had low stats this game but he has some very very important ills lock some smokes down ate his ass you still owe ate his ass i dont know and i dont think im gonna be able to say that if i cant say i dont land i probably shouldnt say it online sunny failed quite badly there uh i mean he had health i dont and he is the glaucus thats tough i mean he needs his teammates to stay alive so that he can fly walk walk up closer and then shoot i am i am i am a charity pistols for renegades right mm-hmm thatll help crack spotting mid pull the pin play as i like to say where you use this you just delay the smoke as long as possible im making sure you have info first so theyre just throwing it blind versus valuable seconds off the clock you stoves got his spoke as well so now theres only a couple of avenues that they can come out of easily nifty doesnt have a ton of support but because they have banana control they can flank him very quickly so friends spotted niftys gonna decide to play on the inside of the smoke which actually works out quite well since the arch milk is still on you can make sure that hes not too far from his teammates and what was that jes phase up hop the drop for oscar full smg button open nifty hes got a nifty got a foam thats actually early banana nades and fast rotate off its three people there no damage is actually done just by playing it ultra passively i like this from sports would like to see this early and a half from renegades just staying away from bennifer a little bit and this is a strong crossfire they got three here – uh i like this from the renegades i was gonna say the smgs could be in danger but oh boy yeah and their minds oh boy i dont know if mel sports know of jks being here it looks like they might so hes gonna actually just go all the way back seconds up i like it continue to jump spot for information they can have hard rotate over to a i like renegades in this round a bit of damage dealt its gonna be hard to get this plant where any guys are playing it nicely as are oh my god really did want that ill but there is still a cross fire going on and you would think that these are easy frags and it certainly is so yeah its good round good round from rng on their bonus round tubes no less so no even if they lose one theyre uh theyre theyre still going to be in a pretty decent spot lets get through this mousesports i think took a took us took a breather just to talk about talk about their economic situation and its a pretty passive default kind of from both sides at least excuse me yachting im not even tired i dont know who i am yelling i think its cuz i just ate ive got the itis again i like using these i like them using these sm cheese and just getting very very far down banana i like it a lot this time they dont have a third player for support but they also arent quite as aggressive and if she gets his ill in mid thats a big frag his ankles just deep enough look at that a couple of nice head shots not a single player dead from the renegades for the renegades no single player hurt rub both boards not a single player dead for the renegades i said i just the other day in the same context of my friend and for me its super racist what i only knew it from a chappelles so show sketch i dont even know where i know from might have been the chappelle show it just means that your that just means that youre tired because youre full thats what i thats what it what hmm is it an a hit no what is it its all a ruse theyve actually done this to play it back to be and leave ste coe amid to be able to hear for rotates no ones coming down mid however but this is gonna allow mousesports to fight inside the sight only worried about ct and construction and play banana and use that angle against ct without that player being worried so its nice theres now gonna slowly move off of his angle but they put appropriate pressure on that aum plant this is this is looking like what a retake it could be solid oh as it comes back the awareness i think he actually heard but now its oscar v with the op on ct as er just barely peaking trying to get a little bit of damage in if he can get it with the m and now hes peaked a little bit wider to make it uncomfortable for oscar does handle it nice and nice he does he does nice he nice does those good dont be dropping out on the stream thats what i thought look that heck that is seriously what thank you for the reso graduates the condition of being lazy no i dont know i dont know everything doesnt have to be racist i just think thats just flocking ridiculous somebody informed me that that was racist okay yeah i know you agree im not even like making fun of you or anything i just think the whole thing is crazy that should happen so much right and niftys nangal we talked about from the first half hmm and its kind of calmed down she was on the other side of the table which has turned its actually renegades getting the opening ill every single time wow nice shot wow nice shot very well done and everybody is bringing food to the table right now but especially as a what a rock-solid k a three-fer for the boys hi another yuko but whats easys anythings possible have we seen a nico i think weve seen one i think weve seen do we even see one im not sure im not sure if we even saw one eco round one we may have renegades gotten to be less out something like that fastlane hit no ones actually here to stop them nassers now just caught kind of out in the open as you still oh goes down on top of the balcony all three players on a get melted alive im elated i cant test it jes makes a bit of presents probably want to hold on to that nade get that glorious pitt nade the ex god made in the pit oh my god that didnt that was now worth it that was not what oh okay it was it was fine i mean they didnt win yet the games not over you can burn through this cash fast and he probably could have saved that him for probably wasnt worth it for what he was trying to do could have crouched over to the side throwing the need in the pit helped and aumed blow them up but through the nate early stuff around a little bit too long every death matters men every get matters nifty getting real aggressive a mid but oscar is three aware he absolutely knows that there is a chance of that hurt going down but could you expect sunny to go through a smoke into the front of a molotov onto banana versus cts with no teammate left over just to get the trade i mean online you would you expect that i didnt but now that he got the trade its a strong its a strong position for mousesports ive got a lot of utility left as well now lets see how they handle banana / mid versus how the renegades an old banana / min most sports making an early rotate out see this is this is good i mean you have two options on tv side if youre down in numbers you can make a gamble rotate or you can try to push something with your teammate to get info both have their advantages both are totally totally justifiable and theyve actually made a great call here wont matter however jks moledo from second oranges as theyre sitting in construction and was also last seen here it doesnt seem like he plans to make any moves anytime soon melted eviscerated emulsified how would you feel if someone talked like that about a year our nathan jeez hmmm carefully placed nade lands nearby steek oh very well done you dont know how much that damage means until the rounds over but maybe well lets keep tabs on that okay stick ohs now at that means though one shot head from the m one less bullet from a spray that much closer to dying so what im trying to say and renegades theyve gone somewhat passive they still have eyes on mid however as er now get small topped off seconds up and theyve got control of everything very distinct difference from the first half this is not something that amount of sports would have left the renegades do to them no gambles to rotate either and they have a player left at mid so this split should be successful jake um is pushed into an awkward position but the hold is quite good and the mall taubs are in the in the actual in the wrong places no ones that quad one gets bounced off they dont have enough time to get in or plant tell them they relied on uh it relied on the sight hold but the side hold was good i think a cam actually got blind but fortunate enough to stay safe female sports didnt have enough gate maids going into that who knows and if youre not going to peek all the way down into oscars territory and again were seeing a lot more of the s were seeing a cheese period from the renegades on ct side none on the t side ever always prioritizing two flashes in the mall table im not sure if nifty was able to see that gets caught on the palette should have put out pulled out his pickaxe and destroyed it and a very very strong multi forsake them cant get any kind of angle to spot this arch cross its actually a readjustment into the lane split which you know how much we hate so lets see how it goes there it is crossfire comes into effect you still owe goes down in the pit as er has actually repositioned nifty from the corner of a smoke at moto is still alive but not well hes at half hp as there also gets hurt this will certainly be a tough position to deal with rops in the big pit to be moving around and oh wow hes flushed out of his position nifty hits his op shot oscar one beat two catches the shoulder of jks and now those that niftys on the other side of smokey actually shot and mate presents two off shots traded and missed nifty goes right for the defuse because he doesnt think also he was gonna stick around but he does and hits the noscope easily to this spell death for the renegades we dont know well maybe we do but we dont know thirty fourteen eleven four mousesports seems like a halt spot is about to come out and you still those down here in the pit gets that first hedgehog critical frag to hit but oscar comes out with the fast trade nifty now all alone on the site hits that first off shot the second one is easy and the third one is simple as well and now this is a man who just needs to put a one in that because that was some wonderful off shots that worse that work those were some wonderful off shots that were secures those ills chris j blind versus blind and the teammate who isnt easily what takes them down secure secures a ill and gets the trick i would i need more things how do i need more things to say ezal handles business deals with them ills him frags power owns him take some of the questions get some abab some boobs him hone yeah power ownage thats what bones dance for so lame okay the jks with the defensive ag grenadine actually very impactful i got to stop saying barry too after plant city ation nifty so patient so deadly so quick and the round isnt done for him back to the well for nifty you can use quite actually you dont want to use any substitution for very just want to remove it just want to remove it whats that kind of voc whats that what is that um type of word its like its like a supportive word but its pointless no its its jits not like i guess you could consider it a hitch word or crutch or something but very or really theyre words that you just dont that that shouldnt be in any ones that you should you should probably replace there are tons of charts for ways to avoid seeing very for writers and stuff really id like to see a pronoun is like a proper name an adjective yeah no im saying like no nevermind yeah forget about it oh my god thats a valium all talk right there and easy cleanup and the boys are back renegades after this one will just be two away from actually closing this out its a very unlikely situation dont say very they papa thank you cons or appreciate that i think i have the vocabulary some of it somewhere in my head but ive got to create that spider web that spider that spider web of connections in my mind to be able to call upon all of these different things and ways to say different things im doing these guys with casual cows helps to break those habits as well i think hopefully let the rapid ill yeah yeah dexter hmm critical round seeing chris j call some very crazy stuff in the final moments of games said very good ive seen chris j call crazy things in the final moments of games it sounds so much better hectic hectic arch controlled be wrapped fake strats that one is gonna bust out this time all i cant because they dont have enough utility to do that they dont they just that they have to smokes in a molotov theyve got to keep it simple and they probably want to veil the thought that they cant as well sting lives obviously the most important thing for them right now ste co swoof barely gets away with his life here that was uh sniff he had held oh one nifty goes back to watch them when he sees if he held that angle for one more second he would have been able to ill ste co he is gonna be very upset with her hes gonna be upset with himself nobodys very anything hes gonna be upset with himself but here he is nifty so consistent from this position hits that first fry get no problem however it seems like hes alone save calls for the renegades already oh my god where did you still go i wasnt done that flick was unfair yikes jacobs hurt but theyve got money to buy at least and there it goes to round numero round and this is what it all boils down to thats it cant change anything okay the other team is just as nervous as you are if you got to just play your game do all the things you did in practice remember your training but dont be afraid aggressive smoke down mid nifty throws it down himself so he can hold onto alts but thats most obviously a huge towel the teams gonna share this information but as we can see its bought the time they have to clear it out be certain that no one is around jacobs gonna see the smoke cascading over the b site into ct and push him into a new position its actually following bat falling back into a similar setup actually all of renegades have actually fallen back into a similar setup as we normally have seen them i dont know if most sports are me fully aware of how they rotate based on if someones a ct and they smoke it out but its actually chris and again not afraid to call stuff like this in late round situations to come out to beat not only that but get it ill he doesnt get away quite safely just yet opportunity here to get to but jacob is too good going to be a ton of pressure put on him as he gets that first head and expels the last of his utility moves himself in a second oranges and its taking quite an aggressive angle goes for that initial pre-fire head on sunny and ross goes to trade but also takes quite a bit of damage nifty super close to just nailing that aum plant on an off-the-cuff push hoping that his muscle memory wouldnt deceive him and here it is the retake is on and again this could be for all the marbles oscar trades a dink for a ill and heck take that however nifty takes it back and you still up moving into water from ct is able to both ill rops and ste coe crossfire gets taken down and were going ot again those are this important ills mean however you covered what however you serve it up those are important ills its got heat here and them the first pistol those ills as well [music] two more thing two more importance around round and round one name two more important girls two more important rooms name two rounds that are more important aim to more important rounds to aim two rounds that are more important oscar here aiming for the jump peak prix is pre aiming for the jump peak sunny experiences the afterimage flash of the bottom of banana i think hes off the corner of a smoke may be an opportunity to spot a foot but there isnt anyone quite there you still trying to get in a bit of a rhythm with the shoulder peak a nifty on a very common but still see decided angle you think hed win this duel hmm and see the pellet five past is that a pellet in and off if its a shell with an awful it would can you call that a pellet no all right theres a well placed and well times malta looks like mickey wants a little bit more before he leaves dont know if somebody got hurt there it looks like that flick might have been good and here it is getting quite aggressive hes all alone no rotates to help him out i mean whoa youve got four up here they really maybe hes telling them i think its gonna be i think its gonna be eight but its not its not man its gonna be beat and now youre locked into this position a slave to the pre-fire teammates are quite late but because you went for youve done your job and a kind of counterbalance is the amount of time that they have to waste running here but as we can see theyre pretty pretty aware the fact that there could be an opera quad but the flash being offhand was still not enough were gonna see another a magical retake from the renegades got the potty heat and set up on b and it looks like theyre gonna stay style word even body are you reviewing that three after this no might do that another day tomorrow or something its very random pickup yeah but hes done well fake him wasnt really oh thats a really good player one point he was just uh i dont know man i still remember jacob on ld be the ruby no lgb that wasnt my favorite items yes heck he was hello say again he was good back then hughie and he went in pure norwegian finesse the golden days right lux the golden days thats poor so they smoked a lot the weakness is if youre all from a quad but its an interesting called control smoking allows them the the freedom to peek a little bit more it looks like theyre both going to take this round and be a little bit hectic with it my goodness that was a i dont want to say a risky way to hold on to b but it seemed like because they had that smoke down there like hey lets get in front of it and tried to come through feel like there was a lot of ways to die doing that we obviously saw one of them but now this is just very unlikely i mean you still oh was unfavorable in that engagement and this one is wow those are a couple of strong frags nazzer has them here theres absolutely no way that they can lose this round oscar going wide because he knows he needs to but theres no chance once again you still oh just dismantling the crossfire between poole and banana i feel like you run that retake in the v ten times they win that twice maybe with you still oh you win at four times its a pretty decent name the meta of crossing to boiler is pretty crazy pretty no no pretty no really no very is crazy what a couple of ills that was and he is weve seen him play that exact same angle more than once monster stuff from azov as uh no way in heck mouths words witness not a chance on earth hmm it cant happen right nifty is in the power position it oh the flicks no good right into the malt ah but it doesnt matter it was all but is it fair its not fair to say a molotov got extinguished if its just if it just runs out that doesnt make sense right to be extinguish means that it has to be forceful its all right id say the molotov want to say run its course that sounds weird to the molotov molotov faded expired mmm expired feels like i guess its kind of its almost like personifying it like it died or something burns out try not to be picky but that just sounds a little bit strange to me for some reason i guess faded but faded be wood faded work for a malta theres a fire fades no more show for the flames did you say that the fire depleted because that i dont feel like deplete is something to use when you run out of water some kind of liquid thats that i think it could be depleted i dont know deplete it feels like it just needs to run out or something that doesnt really something along lines of run it scores exhausted and the flames of exhausted i think that makes sense dies down that makes sense yeah oh yeah as the flames died down ceased yeah okay there we go the frags dont oh chris from emo damn with the three frag its actually got four in total looking for the ace but as theres peaks just a bit too tight a tiny bit and theres no safe plant without a smoke we tried to drop one on them but with very little time left you can sacrifice one person to go and see hes gonna commit wither i feel like wither is and that might be wrong but i feel like wither is when for something to wither away i guess i can only think of in a specific example of like a tree withering away like the leaves wither off of a tree or would that even make sense a linguistic stream yeah kind of this is almost like a this might maybe it turn this into a commentary workshop whether is when a flower dies specifically gonna be used for any other multiple uses for please hone my english at own it hmm like nikkis off skills so i need my casting to be like niftys opping ability young nesquik monster signals for the boost and ste co obliges doesnt isnt high enough to see the cross back to mid but they safely fall off of it after making just a little bit more noise doesnt matter though first eco and oscar doesnt expect anybody to have gone that wide and now its just raw alone on the site versus four you cant do this theres no way you should read more flock you okay how do you know i dont read im just kidding youre right we what kind of stuff would you be interested in reading i actually do read sometimes im reading the zen art of motorcycle maintenance right now what was the last thing i read i cant remember it was a good one though i learned a lot of words too bad he doesnt read cat thats funny the zen art of motorcycle maintenance yet crossfire up in mid and then i control from mousesports flash out of boiler and sneak oh strengthes strafe is straight sit over top of the fire to avoid to mitigate the amount of damage that i could do then smokes can go i think that might be library but i might be mistaken looks like the wraps in plate sunny with a well time molotov to complement his teammates and actually pays off for a frag nifty also gets fired out of its spot and everybody in passive positions on the site but oscar going huge with that deagol unbelievable ill right there well the second one to boot i dont think its really about motorcycles at all yeah not really its a its a its its philosophy its just a series of its like a story with a series of analogies and philosophy its good stuff another off rag for nicky hes not done yet i think he heard that reload as well but i maybe he didnt maybe even because it is land its hard to hear bullets being peppered through the smoke i dont like anyone has druthers play can you say pellets or no peppering and would be like tempering bullets to a smoke hmmm retakes on mousesports looking to looking to attain mappoint their hopes might be dashed first caught first player from the cons rap gets hurt niftys actually got to oh my god for and total one more guy left over its rops your resident a tanker and he dies too just the aum if nifty planted that aum you deserve these pellets only come out of shotguns then what are they called bullets okay what do you call projectiles i could insist i could say i could also say projectiles in certain situations the whole thing is a cartridge or around okay who say firing rounds unloading rounds firing rounds this is helpful hmm nifty dont know how it happened but it happened robs weve seen this adjustment before people in they flash out sometimes they jump into the pit in the way that hes facing but this time theres too many people to make that gamble the instant and it looks just just like that no actually theyre theyre racing here so metal laser ill say here here racing racing place in were gonna do one of these every day so as soon as land heads will be insane every day that we every day that we stream at least all right back into the game to renegades win this they win i cant believe oscar didnt take that shot i think you might have quick switched a little bit too quickly and nifty who really wanted that engagement was happy to take it but so i was oscar im sure he heard that flash bounce and thought all right lets risk it for the biscuit but off of the back of this renegades become a little bit more impassioned and have actually overstepped their bounds nifty coming across that line of fire into the line of fire of oscar its actually put himself in an even more aggressive position that office really roaming getting value out of it and now that hes in library but smoked out theyre worried about him but not concerned to the point that they need to make an adjustment everybody else has pitched in mel sports are the first team to get to in the first half of the second ot has completed has concluded and with that to one half the renegades are wait a second yeah i was two in a row so renegades got to my sports one so for any gates one plays it cant remember oh she is so confusing but not for sunny this boy is fully torqued prepared ready [music] excuse the ambulance oh thats a ill that might have come a little bit too easily for the mousesports for mousesports nobody is nobodys here in time and thats the value of illing an opera quickly is that there is no chance theres no theres no chance – theres just no chance to win i mean if you if you ill the opera be so low and the erasers are brave enough to follow up and hit the site right away theres there the retake is so unlikely because you give up and up for the after plan you can also make it extremely hard to even get a cc to get ready for the retake you dont know if anybodys in construction or if you can get there youve also got to ill the guys on banana and yeah thats how we saw that play out just now was how you normally would see that play out hard to keep it fresh as the rounds roll on nifty in a pretty similar position to what weve seen for a lot of the rounds here on cd side for for the renegades where heck peak mid and fall back getting too aggressive got him got him punished to the point that hes never gone for the for the oscar frag and in mousesports his very passive default they havent they havent bothered doing anything but waiting as sonny works on banana mousesports fall back into into their default as they do at frags leaving the pack by a giant margin what a comeback this has been already : to : but you know everything resets mentally economically its a new game well be exact first oranges malta gets thrown down somehow j cass finds away in the ct and has an opening to let go of his malta but jacob who has been so good in that position cant meet his teammate halfway and get the ills they need to such a strong execute overall putting a lot of pressure on these rotates as well another round were renegades just go to passive on ct fall victim of the trap of having having to retake with even with equal numbers isnt something youll do very often again the fortified crossfire from ct and banana is good theres just no way to win the without a lot more utility which is part of the reason why you work on a default as well because lets say you plant b but you went in the beginning and you cleared brackets and stuff say oscar throws a small table from arch as earth roses all to malta from lane and then you go back to b and you take me and they come in well guess what they dont have molotov story takes so you can sit in quad now theres a lot of options that open up for you when you do spend a little bit of time trying to make sure that your opponents use their utility really was something that cloud did really well especially at the major a major renegades on the backfoot need one to simply tie nezzer heres these footsteps for sure actually oh my god lines up that flash beautifully with his teammates calls are on point the communication and the teamwork looking absolutely fantastic oh my god four frags at the end of the day and even gets back to his comfort zone on that angle a torch to find the final – unreal im sure the crowd could have be any more proud number three you can see the radio the radio the the the the signal wow would it be off im gonna cut off what i had to say cuz it wasnt important and thats nice its probably got the highest hsp of any offer out there nifty somehow always lining up those instant ink off shots another damage dealt this is a one way that people are throwing where you can see feet of anyone crossing oscar knows he wants him i mean he knows niftys there and he is the kind of deal he loves but he realizes that this ones just uh this bet is not worth takin so that was that was putting your life savings on conor mcgregor right there he wanted it he believed but he would have gone broke they wait patiently with – stinkos gonna be used as bait has an aka but only hp malta catches them on the way out and now nifty is just gonna try to hold down lane no teammate here to help him out what a knot flick from him straight up and down no problem unbelievable to the left take it easy sonny goodnight shut it down stellar performance have we said that yeah i was almost a beyonce reference to the left everything you own and it hasnt stopped yet the bass good however jacob bacon was found his uh found a fan of very keen spot at sandbags only comes away with one but every time they go one for one at this point its going to lead to the w renegades seemingly seeming more hyped than ever seemingly more hype than ever seemingly seeming at more sharp c sharp seeming given up on that one and again this smoke doesnt work so well theyve actually put the whole wall down so the the jump up is actually going to be hard to get anything out of a nifty also from ct to support his teammates and it looks like this be exact its no good i dont know if they had enough smokes but it certainly felt like there was just too much information for renegades to work off of and having someone in ct was uh was not good for them not exactly sure how how they wanted the one of the cts to interact with their smokes but from the placement of it i dont know i i just i dont know what they wanted to do what they wanted to get out of those smokes not why didnt they use the smoke in ct certainly the ones who used one to get their offer off the angle j guys isnt often pick up the op so is it gonna be aware of the danger of peeking into this it looks like not but they actually not it dont say actually it they they throw enough utility to justify taking the fight and it looks like most sports want to move quick off this oscar smells blood but j ks has a still this big green gun the flavor is a bit different but the shots are still the same thats amount of k jks oh thats nice thats refreshing thats just like drinking a big sip of nestea you know like in those commercials where they fall backwards into the pool thats what that shot feels like for an empty right now its games over right yeah the boys really loving off this smoke i guess its a kind of a ghetto spoole smoke but thats gonna be it right here is not a chance that chris j can actually win this right no tries to push through it and thats thats a wrap i think thats a game as i came over no it should be are we done do we okay they need one more they got three in a row okay jesus longer this games goes on the more likely i would think that mouse sports could win but why did you take off your weed and competitive gaming video i think its on there somewhere its like unless hitter something but its probably in a playlist we just organized the youtube so theres less of most of the fluff fluffy stuff and what could be the last round of the game right here and now rob sitting in the pit looks like a halls pop has come in their way this is maybe the round where nifty goes out to lane we saw this actually previously go down and they throw a couple of things at b just to make sure and off gets pushed off great great a chi grenadine though to kick things off and drops here in the crossfire puts up his it holds up his end of the bargain and hits to clean heads everybody else gets melted as well i think they i dont know if they threw in arch smoke or didnt want to or what but that was a little bit strange would have i feel like i would have liked to see everybody could bit into that situation but we did it no sports take it to but are they just prolonging the inevitable are they delaying defeat are they simply poaching the flock poaching you can see that yeah all right ill look that up after you poach would mean to steal but you could save oh just poach a fire at another way you could say fire gets thrown down lay inside to make sure no ones no one can keep a regress and nifty again its making a little bit of presence here on banana i i hope we dont see another straight short / lane / porch hit instead but it seems like that thats that might be whats happening robs again gonna be use the smoke in the same way that he did previously dont know if theyll get a ill looks likes nico nico will be good enough pray for three but as a in a b now seconds up seemingly going to be able to get a plant dont know if anyones gonna push here this is probably a good position to do it just one players creeped up chris j gets hurt no chance to just close it out right there and then however this is not the end of the game is it jesus i dont think you could save osha fire safe oh sh1t oh yeah you cant say poach instead of steel right could post something but whats that called when you step ok if i use a poking a fire like if you because you could take like a poker like a metal poker scope you stoke the flame right thats what it is isnt it stoking yeah ok thats what it was alright ill be sorted that uh my brain is happy we sorted that out is this gonna be the for fright as theres been a heavy hitter for the renegades in this match there is certainly going to be a deep hole in the offense moving forward into this round minted up and robbed just above the fire almost completes the spray transfer very nice attempt but it still counts for a lot hundred and ninety damage to be exact jks is low within one bullet of death from anything as renegades group for the beat hit nippy makes his way in what a fantastic shot almost totally blind not even sure if he ever saw chris j on his screen in that moment unbelievably mustve mustve sigh i have to say must have seen him mother was just the most fantastic intuition and adjustment of his mouth ever but here it is oscar the big player gets hurt and nifty he cant be stopped but sonny wants to prove us wrong takes him down jacob abusing the shadow from emo as we saw him in this position before illing chris j and winning the game renegades have locked it up and nifty had ills nifty jesus thousand viewers thats safe thanks you thank you all you guys for by all of you guys for watching [music]

[music] hello and welcome i dont want to say that anymore no more hello and welcome what up this is the youtube cast height which hi youtube were gonna go over twitch tyloo vs faze clan at sydney in a best-of-three series i think this was map i think this is matt this is matt one i guess because we would see the yellow bar is bill gun we really flocked this up early like right away just like just like just like tyloo right there on the on the ante for spy and already down to three king dedede has the flank locked down and this is gonna i mean it actually doesnt force phase into that awkward of a situation because they they at least have guardian here so i think theyre just hoping that somebody overextends in guardian and get some nice one digg so that they have the opportunity either go back or get a gun but title you are actually playing this quite carefully which you normally dont see from tyloo who are a very uncaring teams based on how uncared-for they were tyloo would be number one but it seems like its a different day for tyloo much more prepared to play against tier teams on the big stage and a lot of it for them is simply having a bit more discipline a big thing for them is as things that are as simple as trading or not moving when they know they have a good spot tyloo very often would just get too aggressive or not having any respect for the mid round when they are either when there are up numbers and instead will continue playing with the aggression that you would have on both sides as if it were b or they were playing like they were down a minute they wouldnt think about our were down a man was our setup whats our adjustment they definitely took a little bit of time to learn that one thing they had going for them is they got they got hamers some of the best amers bar none that was a thick grenadine all the way into a main and and somebody doesnt care who hes illing as long as people die theres a truly a savage speaking of savage he owned a team thats good right now hes on the from what i understand savage is on the second best chinese team its all right that we were right now the best chinese team but my favorite players are always savage lovey zou king where are those boys maybe well see them at the face at major oh you flocked up you done flocked up you dont flocked up a a ron that is a big fluff but its good that they didnt continue with the boots a lot sometimes well just theyll make noise and theyll think ah well this is what we wanted to do so well go well go over the boost and then theyll get hurt because somebody heard them but at least there they didnt continue with it instead they decided to trade for a main information and been tet and holding the line down from white box with a fantastic m a spray oh and eco hose has no idea that somebody is this close but its being careful enough actually and just as i say that let me call this casters curse not all down dd theres only two up for phase hmm captain no captain no catherine captain mo says no surprise they won the previous rounds i dont think that nikko is gonna get caught off guard like that again and i think i think them pushing for information was very standard it was good and it works you wouldnt normally i think its good that also that bent thats playing highway i think thats a really great position for him or he could fight squeaky he can fight a main cross he can help a main and then hed also fight mid so theres a lot of opportunities for him to get ills and he is truly the star of this team so i like the positions i like this set up where b is a little bit harder to do to retake so theyve stacked it more heavily and they have some mid support with xx create in inside the vent i feel like few things are more terrifying than sensing nikko crawling up on your angle maybe kerrigan maybe vent at maybe guardians and they dont get it going think about how different the round would have been if nikko hits the head shot on him offense just think about that that part of the site completely wide open everybody swinging and fighting highway and and truck and nobody from the cts are able to rotate it oh there was a very small chance that guardian got the ill got the plant and even smaller chance theyve won the round but it would have been a big dub for them to at least get vaughan money lets see what tyloo do i saw something holding up a phone at sydney and it said tie lose and it had the old megalo picture in it might have been a sign i think it was a sign actually an op dual one from guardian we saw on inferno if you watch the actual match accurate accurate haha if dj khaled could pronounce his name at at accurate had a pretty fun time opping versus face versus guardian he definitely had a reasonable impact hmm also thinking emoji right there see thats a very small misstep by a man named its the guy youre sending in to make the most dangerous play the round and hes blind because of your own flash you cant really you cant really analyze past that i mean he threw his second flash hes still committed which is good but he wasnt recovered from being blind when he went in but no matter actually matter now thats its its a be hit i thought that tyloo were still in a pretty powerful position to defend versus a it looks like its gonna be would be site b main smoke goes down this is kind of interesting i think he just wants to try to keep the erasers in here for as long as possible where they dont have to search its always kind of pretending to go for the retake its an interesting safe position hp somebody anybody title ii lost the mid-round and mmm have decided to get to ops as an adjustment its not uncommon to do its not a bad thing to do its very powerful especially versus a very default ii team like phase its gonna be mad openings given to given to any ct side offers if theyre smart enough somebody lurking around the smoke at a main and in front of the squeaky door sometimes i wonder who actually wins this fight more consistently oh my god he decided to go in no flash hes got his teammate here at accurate accurate on highway and he has a flash but instead of asking for the for the flash he decides to just go and its one of those things thats hard to justify like why what is the value of not going when you can have a perfect pop flash from a player who doesnt even have to move from this position will you do the other maps no i dont think so give their tyler maps nuts a day at least somehow its a four-on-four been tet as they come out of a mane gets one in the side thats rain going down now continues to spray into head shot nikko last man standing one b can he do it hes got the a k but hes the red time he has no chance to plant and hes got to fall back into the one taps beautiful stuff captain mo doesnt want any of that its always impressive to see how calm ego can be in those situations oh be main pick and nicko straight up missus tag is out captain mo gets – hes found a great position to multi frag here but guardian is ready for so ready the trade is ready it is ready and waiting somebody gets hurt on the cross they know that there was another player there that was kind of interesting i mean its not often that youve seen nico miss a shot like that popping her otherwise but it was a solid round from mo despite that yeah tyloo or given phase the hands right now on a map that phase decided to bring back into their map well they decided to make it a lot stronger im actually trying to recall a veto here but i i dont want to do that now i dont wanna do that theres a time and a place okay ben tete in that position that fur for rain automatic loves to play under the under the boost and dd gets aggressive at beat theyve actually got the double push going out its its extremely strong i dont think theyll expect that somebody is falling back into the site so this might cause a problem for exists dd just trying to make sure he gets away on low hp dd understands that theres a threat now there isnt actually a good way for face to capitalize on this situation exists would have liked to or we would have liked to see exist or run out but at least theres that two ills on read health its actually addressed moe all alone with aum control its probably sweating right now because this is an opportunity and a half but hes got to figure out how he wants to play it the longer he waits them the more worried hes gonna be about big flanks and phase splitting up and thinking too much and you dont want to let that happen in the bx situation especially when you have to play the waiting game but hes looking for this opening frag its not coming to him seconds now up guardian straight up peak sum and wins the duel seemed a little bit slow on that one oh i was trying to i was trying to remember a veto from the past that phase showed when they wanted to take cash on its a while ago but for this one okay so phase removed over past highly removed nuke i want to write a phase removed over past thats interesting facebook cash and highly picktons right now wow you would really think that face have the upper hand in the veto and thats kind of unfortunate for tyloo im gonna move it along keep it going – ups again its like a desperation – opss accurate doesnt even have armor this is something they wanted to a very popular comedy main boost thats going on can be quite dangerous especially in this pop-up theres a lot of people will sit in sun room when they have nothing else to do and theyll just hold this boost the very rare boost you know it comes along once every once once every game if that but its worth it if you have nothing else to do know somebody finds the appropriate time to squeeze out of that angle offense leaving bent at alone in a to be a three before i should say trying to abuse the corner of a smoke that was thrown from phase but kerrigan was too wise to the plan and now theres pretty much no hope left over they really bought on a prayer they would love to save this off and this is when this is one of those situations where oh that actually matters quite a bit nico got a head timings a little bit there viewers thank you guys so much for the support im just a small casual cast wow i never thought id see those numbers dont feel like thats a little low we can get we can get up to we can we can do k who wins this find out right now he has this jump spot oh hes the goat hes the god hes a goblin hes beast dee dee goes for the pre-fire maybe thats a secret shoot early then you look fast oh oh my god wasnt the most graceful of deaths not even really sure why how i know when whats the other one where we know where why or how guardian is just a bit too scary due faze clan need to reinvent themselves they have started to come back things are working whats the first call to action aums it be main with one other player you cant actually see that there is a intention to go anywhere quite yet it seemed like there was just some support they know that tyler were gonna push for information and response to make control its just very predictably what most seams will do in general so i want to know if faze are gonna go for a mid and fake it or if theyre gonna commit and how theyre gonna deal with the push tyloo have doubled up on highway its looking a little bit crowded over there theyve actually now left it and havent pushed an a main but they do have a lot of information posting the op up here is pretty good pretty good move from from tyloo i know that phase theyve just been basically having nikko come in here by himself and make sure no ones doing anything funny there throw that nade deep its not gonna be good and exist it dies with the aum so tyler theyre definitely gonna be concerned about a in fact all three players that be are leaving theyve evicted the site inaccurate is about to get fired out of his position at forklift somebody has a lot of pressure put on him but im not gonna tell you who there is no hope now for him and maybe tyloo as well as captain moe potentially the leader of the team dont know if the name has anything to do with his position how to do how to do a whole lot more trait trades potentially could have been a bit better their information was definitely on their side they had everything going for them the op down the op with the ill and the in division on a main that rotate to forklift maybe it was a little bit weird from accurate and yeah thats tough you always want to you always want to credit the team that gets the information whether or not they lose the round you know but its definitely one of the trials of playing against phase that you will lose rounds like that got everything going for you still lose so what the car is past accurate in a you saying accurate i dont know why accurate in a very familiar position and forklift last seen last spotted does that mean that hes gonna get molly it out again i mean it is the antique oh no id probably throw it here smokes with a cross as they come out he stays a stale word now pops his head up like its groundhog day and gets put back down bedtime for accurate accurate accurate accurate i keep saying accurate oh my god been listening too much dj dj khaled the best around to ops again accurate never needs armor he doesnt care he just doesnt oh double flashing a main instant first ill for somebody thats pretty good and thats a shot you need to hit but clearly the aim punch had an impact oh one tap battle from exist comes out ahead and another one bent em all heated up his position that was a weird wide swing from truck i think that claire has been abused more than once mrs

small mistakes that were seeing that her that thats allowing face to really just pry open the a site and katham oh once again on the rotate niko is immediately going to take him down after getting that killer would have been a long shot to win the round but they gave it a shot i think they could have won a few more of these rounds a day certainly if we go back and look at them look at those rounds again some of it has to do with trades but some of it has to do with free rotator ills i think is a big sticking point for for tyloo when they start to lose a sight the the rotations in seem to be a little bit unsafe and its a unfortunately takes getting punished like this by the best players to make those adjustments it probably sucks being besides actually you know besides the praise that you get it probably sucks being the best team in your region if youre trying to stay there were trying to become better because you dont have anyone that can drive you upwards and like teach you discipline into pistol number two and i thought it was gonna happen right we thought we thought it the calm before the storm the mid bust is imminent two to three players up on top of the boost with the aum to run out mid spot ones eat sandbag is actually gonna come in handy now and raining is waiting to activate but carrigans here at highway doing most of the legwork for phase with a couple of clean heads captain mo with his full maid set and glock cannot stay alive so kerrigan i mean he was at the how you see that round play on most the time is because theres so many people swinging on kerrigan he should probably only be able to get one and then you have rain to pop up from the sandbags start shooting people in the back of the head but either way the set up was really good to deal with an a split like that captain mo up on the boost and down off the boost carrigan sends him flying theyre gonna go forward again see how nikko handles these door shenanigans certainly doesnt seem i think i open it oh one spotted he thinks its nico but its not stray bullet wont be and an overall very successful anti-eco sad state of affairs for tyloo they had a dog in this fight had most their rounds early in this in this game they had most of their rounds jesus they almost won although all the rounds they won in a row how far we far and how fast weve fallen fayes showing us their world beater cash and you know what all those guns a lot of great stuff on cash today but but phase have just been too too strong too strong individually honestly and in the mid round as well i mean decision making its been on point but some of the setups and reactions for tyloo made sense oh my god i mean i understand it because if he goes through the glock heads hes gotta get three and by that point guard hes gonna flick on him no problem he has a knife its instant i know the thought crosses your mind that if youd go for the knife theres its theres so much baggage along with it like everyones gonna think that you were trying to be an asshole but theres definitely situations the knife has higher percent chance of getting a ill than the gun id say that was one of them good flashes out a main oh whats going on here somebody actually gets gets a frag at mid opening ill instantly traded back by rain niko going to carefully place a grenadine on anybody else exiting as most wings wide across the site it doesnt seem like anybody from phases aware that this threat is a possibility and been ted just off of game sense alone spams on aum wall and ills niko whos holding the op and an angle rain is he going to get flash into default they carrigans gathered from information for him but at the cost of his life and now rain looking for two cant do it leaving guardian all alone from an auxilary position just hoping that somebody would cross the site and they wont do him any favors a solid round solid ground overall simple a split as the thing about cash almost anything can work but thats thats a round they needed to win because that was a oh sorry that well i thought that was the second in a row so heres heres that round that i was just talking about that they won interesting to see phase address in the same way as tyloo picking up the double lofts as soon as they lose definitely curious how they handle their defaults on teesside seem like everyones just making sure that theres no pressure take matt patrol away from them there what you could call a free map control a main b main but i wouldnt be surprised at phrase do im not surprised that tyloo are waiting well let smoke goes out you go throws a flash and either / or smoke or it looks like a smoke in response as rain pushes through b main they pick a great timing to do that im not sure what the tell was but i think it might have been the the smoke out towards they said hey here lets go for information mid to be smokes gonna be used to cross but guardian wont respect it puts himself all the way out there strong position and oh my yeah definitely look like a good move from guardian who recognized that if he tried to fall back he would die so he went on a very aggressive angle to see if the pre fire would come out come on game was there and now its inside the mind of accurate accurate low hp hes on a head angle it can get closed off oh he does get at least one frank but speaking of frags the frag grenadine comes and lands right behind him now would have been noted in something else that would have been something else : thats not that doesnt constitute a buy if you ask me but you can get c zs and you cant complain about being able to buy cds so lets see lets see him captain moshe probably should have got dropped one by dd so they could have evened out the money a little bit i think that moe is also the one whos gonna be hopping but maybe somebody else is buying it for him overall tyloo looking a lot more sharp than they normally do capital one two three [music] those smokes were like so nice for the cts if if for anybody highway i think they maybe wanted to i dont know maybe they wanted to run out through forklift and push the push them on highway but they didnt do that so maybe somebody who had a good gun died i dont know but that looked like those are actually really good smokes with cts to fight the cross you know like what do you always want to do when youre on highway its try to smoke i started shoot people over toxic barrels on on top highway very common position to hold versus people boosting up its not and terribly it looks more uncomfortable than it is i think but its certainly not that easy of a position to play usually very high fracas ition but as chaos ensues rain has already made his way into checkers this is just named a new and incredibly valuable information the only reason that a guardian even has to stay here is because they dont know that its not gonna be a mid take and there it is kerrigan looking for his jewels and goes one for one id say the still favors the cetys oh baby that would have been a meaty flick if you hit it hmm and didi actually backs up right into the crosshairs of another offer on the team its actually guardian this time so i dont think they expected that adjustment to come out and i dont blame up bent at doesnt care holds down the spray and its very good about it nikko actually goes all the way out there to find that ill and now that the trades are done with rain looks like he wants to speed this one be blowing up and actually runs up highway throws the mall table down but somebody is totally prepared what was this round indeed i was a little i was a little crazy exist is temporary i think i think he exists as mentioned recently something about finding when he finds his new home what hes gonna do oh i think already didnt wanted to take that fight i dont think he wanted to lose it though olaf had some personal things he didnt he can talk about and take breaks unfortunate its pretty good player won a couple majors moreno said that ola still has pain in his wrist really wonder why you didnt just say that and damn nico where the heck you been brain found that very cute off-angle hes holding on tight to it as well new opponents as they come through in alternate doorway in the and the de facto b main flash from checkered goes down but an accurate doesnt want to doesnt want any of this hes going most coked for the rest of the ground maybe its also an issue i wonder why he said that it was like personally she doesnt want to talk about that was also his opposers risk with your play of arrest or hurts either way its sad seems like deaths deaths approached the doorstep deaths approached the doorstep of shot of tyloo of kailua deaths approached the doorstep of tyler you throw in a couple of cross moves versus this boost though sometimes you can trade this if people come out and clear it but when theres noise coming through the smoke and you dont have all that much utility only got cz is you know thats a very strong position for smokes to deagles did somebody just buy a deagle and then drop it for a cz smart man hes planning to win its a better man than me and this could be all she wrote guardian locking it down at b main from checker theres no molotov to push him off and the flash is gonna be a huge tell in fact a molotov from his team to cover to cover his fire but it it its a and off givin up to dd and the trait comes out versus the mid rotators but two players have already made their way into the site rain it snacks and in return tyloo have taken van control this is actually a nice mid round from them a korea is also in a pretty strong position now that theyve threatened to go back to mid he has the aum hes gonna spot a rain and unfortunately for him rain ducks right under his scope and thats why you always aim for the duck so when they crouch you hit him in the face by a shirt a stored up boxer gg i hope you enjoyed that game im glad we get to watch some of these sydney games back and thats it for me [music]

RANT vs ISCA (fiction)

RND/ in which Robert What actively pretends to be current Theorist In Residence for ISCA – the smoothly sinister & sublimely algorithmic “Institute Of Southern Contemporary Art” [1] – installed in their wires over the weekend by remote hack, a hungry cybernetic ghost – yet in fact represents the theoretical interests of “RANT” (Refusal Against Northern Theory)

First, the ‘Logos’ of RANT:

Transcript of Institute For Southern Contemporary Art (via Robert What)

“If an algorithm were employed to design a sculpture that conveyed the most spectacular of ironies, it might look something like this – a lavish symbol of extinction standing at the front-line of climate disaster. Regardless, billionaires aren’t here to look very far past Miami Beach’s turquoise horizon. Instead, they’re invested in playing games. Fucking with categories. Promoting innovation – and it’s accomplice, disruption. Contemporary art is part of that regime. It is a transnational symbol that cuts across thresholds of all kinds. Legal and otherwise. The mammoth arrived from the past, and imparts a future; the gilding is a conceit of the present.

Imagine if the flow of contemporary art were to somehow stall; would recent art be more closely tied to its site of production? Would Miami, as the southern most metropolis in the US, become the centre for southern contemporary art?

This is in fact ground zero for contemporary art in the South. As it has been since 2002. But we are now faced with a situation that has not appeared since the days of Noah. In the future, if rising sea level scenarios hold, it will require us to begin again with Southern Contemporary Art – only it will need to occur elsewhere; from there, we can determine what will come after the contemporary.

Welcome to Atlanta; the inland metropolis of the South. Let’s take a cultural turn and fly past John Portman’s glass skinned enclosures. They are ruins of a bygone future. Foreboding, and therefore cherished by the dystopian storytellers of the film and TV industry. A distinguished architect once said something prophetic about places like these – “We were making sandcastles. Now, we swim in the sea that swept them away.”

Atlanta’s Central Library was the architect Marcel Breuer’s final project. It was completed in 1980. Like the Whitney museum Breuer designed immediately preceding, the Central Library is concrete clad, and, brooding. There it is now. The structure certainly has its detractors. But the architecture community came to its defence, when its future was put into question following a city referendum in 2008. Since then the Central Library has been severely de-funded, understaffed, and there are ongoing rumours that the building will be sold or demolished.

The uncertain future of the Central Library presents an opportunity, to complement the ambitions of its maker. Marcel Breuer believed that architecture should be an instrument for “civilizing technology.” To meet those ends, we’d like to introduce a new standard. The “Institute For Southern Contemporary Art” – ISCA.

The Central Library will be transformed, to promote the advancement of contemporary art, here in the South. It is a grand experiment; part think tank, and part experimental program to promote new terms for art production. The Institute For Southern Contemporary Art begins with a simple bottom line that, art is produced as a commodity. It doesn’t become one when it is sold. While technology is increased productivity in most sectors, art has remained a time consuming operation; creativity requires time, and ‘art work’ still takes work.

Fellows accepted to ISCA are awarded a stipend and do not pay tuition. ISCA will become an experiment in pedagogy, and reinvent the study and training of visual arts right here in the South. The only work of fellows is to occasionally provide the algorithm with their demographic, psychographic, and behavioural attributes. The rest of the time is dedicated to the pursuit of advancing art practices, curatorial work, and critical writing that engages with the social and intellectual conditions in the art field. The work will be supported by a venerable rotating roster of theorists, artists, activists, designers, and developers. It’s amazing what the art market can provide, isn’t it?

Through algorithmic learning, ISCA fellows will instrumentalize a market that already operates as if regulated by computational logic. The analysis of art market metadata has proved beneficial primarily for collectors, many of whom do very little, besides await returns on the derivatives market.

At the core of The Institute For Southern Contemporary Art, is a supercomputer that analyses and models the flow of art markets. For some time, market data has been the primary determinant in shaping matters of taste. It is a cybernetic system which has trained the heart, and the mind.

This requires a complex analysis of trends. Then, you add in Instagram data; Instagram data is incredible because you’re basically crowdsourcing opinion. The more the art market becomes gamified, the more adept the ISCA algorithm will be in generating a detailed production plan for art than can successfully enter the market flow. You see, this will be done for an acceptable margin of error, considering volatility, and a penchant in the art market for ‘anomalies’. Mastering the market shouldn’t take long, since it does trend toward the formulaic and user friendly. Artworks are eager to please.

After setting up shop in the Breuer building, ISCA fellows will function as subject matter experts, providing rating data to artificial neural networks. The networks are made up of software based neurons, which communicate and alter their connection strengths to adapt and learn. The ISCA algorithm also encodes a chain of inferences, made by contemporary art experts, financial analysts and critical theorists.

This ‘deep learning machine’ factors the creative product’s art history, to help draw inferences about originality, and influence. Art is a special asset class – a beautiful instrument really, which provides very tangible incentives for Returns On Investment. And, it is less risky than you would think. Proper analytics and data management are the key. The myth that ‘everything can be quantified’ is quite powerful.

While services provided by art advisor and art rank all deliver predictive data, our computational model is focused on a different horizon. We aim to serve the interests of artists, not just collectors. Once the system is up and running, contemporary art products will be marketed and sold under the ISCA imprimitive. Like any other creative expression, algorithmic art requires interpretation – a human touch. Authorship and individuality are key factors for quantifying artistic value. Collectors expect it.

So, just about all ISCA production will be outsourced. A crowdworking system will hire technicians, marked by the highest reputational rankings. Painters, welders – but also coders, and 3D designers. Luckily, there is a large labour pool to draw from. Art schools have turned vocational.

As the Damien Hurst mammoth illustrates, the market welcomes fabrication, and outsourcing. It’s been that way for decades. So it only follows that in the future, art production will be further automated, and predicted.

You know, this reminds me of a story, recounted by the artist Howard Finster about a divine intervention. After dipping his index finger in enamel paint, Finster observed that it had been transfigured into the face of God. That vision was tied to a previous vision, where he was called to “Paint sacred art”, yes – paint sacred art. And wouldn’t you know it, God was saying to him all the time ‘Howard, you got to get your pictures out to the world.’ And you could hear God say “Sell ’em!” And that’s when he started to sell his paintings to the world.

You are probably thinking that this entire venture is crazy. And you’re probably saying that, “Computers don’t know creativity.” That, art isn’t just a set of instructions. But I assure you that our results are based on quantifiable information. You see, it’s been a long time since artists were regarded as sages or priests. They are more likely to be specialized knowledge workers, like many of us. Taste can be fickle. So it is high time to let software take command.

Contemporary art is a multi-billion, unregulated market, with unclear criteria just waiting to be harnessed. And the ISCA algorithm is just the instrument to do it. It isn’t a perfect deterministic model. But at ISCA, we didn’t just get into The Art Game to optimize for market performance. The goal of automating contemporary art is to become emancipated from it.

You see, political economy is at the heart of The Art Problem. Technology may be changing infrastructure, but that infrastructure is made to function according to narrowly defined objectives. Technological change alone won’t curtail an art field defined by individualism and competition – regardless of what artists and collectives really want. It’s time to put it into autopilot. Capital can slough off its human drag.

Artists have become compelled to conceive of themselves as entrepreneurs. Any chance for autonomy is precluded by a lack of access to market distribution. But, once access is granted, artists cease to function as meaningfully autonomous. This is an age old conundrum that ISCA is dedicated to challenging.

Now you are probably wondering how ISCA artists and its programs will be subsidized. Well, sales of our contemporary art products are projected to make ISCA sustainable by 2022.

It was recently said that contemporary art must be anywhere, or nowhere, at all. So why not the South, which boasts the most hospitable of business environments? If ISCA could help make the South the industry leader in contemporary art, it would. But, as it stands, contemporary art carries with it a kind of fiction, of a unified present that is global, and boundless. But of course, contemporary art has boundaries. They are called Biennales. Free ports. Art fairs in Dubai, Miami, and London. Often, art only takes on aspects of the contemporary, when it is framed as such. “The Now” has a particular recognizability, which dictated the design of the ISCA module that you can see here. This version happens to house Marcel Breuer’s Wassily chairs. The rest of the container is ready to be filled with *your* imagination.

The modules are an important ISCA strategy. They are sized to fit inside cargo containers. Moving from port to port, modules can be positioned anywhere, to instantly increase consumer confidence.

How do we map an edge, that is in constant motion? How can we fix a fluid boundary, when it comes time to mark the limits of private property, and the commons? On the beach, ISCA modules will be positioned near the high tide line, in a grey area between the two designations – caught in a perpetual state of groundlessness. In the coming decades, as the tide line advances, many of our most progressive art institutions – now elevated about storm surge level – will be inundated. The concrete beams which support the museum platform, will turn into artificial reefs, and support a diversity of sea life. By the of this century, the museum will stand on a seabed, owned by the state, and be placed in the public trust, possibly as a memorial to contemporary art, as we’ve known it.
