    Not this again....this is not a censorship.
    This one actually kinda is. The censored part doesnt really matter though, at least not to me. Im just kinda dissapointed Blizzard is willing to give up their vision so easily.

    No, it is not.

    No one is ordering or forcing Blizzard make those changes, they just do it themselves to please their audience.

    Argument is that, dressing up like that and standing with that pose is not strength. Let me tell you : THAT IS STRENGTH.

    Last year in dhaka, captial of my country some people organized comic con, within an hour of the event 20-30 mollah with hijab and nakab gathered outside event venue and threatened to attack if "the girls inside who succumbed to devil are not turned back to god with hijab and nakab", organizers had to call police and drive them back once they started thrashing event posters and started forcing their way in. Organizers later that day said they won't ever organize another event in bangladesh.

    Now you tell me, a young girl dressing up in racy outfit and standing in the middle of so many men with that pose, is it sign of weakness or strength? 
    I have a felling that Europe and  Western Civilization in general will turn into a retarded Bangladesh )))very soon no offense pal just these retarded religions social problems are melting my brain ...
    I am not offended friend, it is indeed retarded.

    Boobs are LIFE, Boobs are LOVE, Boobs are JUSTICE, Boobs are mankind's HOPES and DREAMS. People who complain about boobs have lost their humanity.

    Of course not!! It is just localization!! An american company is localizing their game for american audience!!! Nothing wrong here, we should all be on our way as if everything is rainbows and sunshine!! /sarcasm off
    Indeed. Pity you do not understand that...
    Right...this is the point where we should also dug a hole and bury our heads, right?

    Feminism is more about mimicking the abhoring attitude of men. "See! We can be jerks too, now we're equal!"

    No, Blizzard does it to shut them up and avoid bad publicity of larger scale = lower  sales in the long run. Welcome to the bussiness.

    Kaplan has clarified the change:

    We wouldn’t do anything to sacrifice our creative vision for Overwatch, and we’re not going to remove something solely because someone may take issue with it. Our goal isn’t to water down or homogenize the world, or the diverse cast of heroes we’ve built within it. We have poured so much of our heart and souls into this game that it would be a travesty for us to do so.

    We understand that not everyone will agree with our decision, and that’s okay. That’s what these kinds of public tests are for. This wasn’t pandering or caving, though. This was the right call from our perspective, and we think the game will be just as fun the next time you play it.

    If it isn’t, feel free to continue sharing your concerns, thoughts, and feedback about this and other issues you may have with the game, please just keep the discussion respectful.




    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Same thing... Still, no one is forcing them, there is no authority imposing repercussions, etc. This is not a censorship.

    Well, I'm done with Blizzard. This is pandering to SJW and going against artistic freedom. The moment developers start bending over backwards like this and are willing to destroy their own creative vision, is the moment I'm done with them. I don't need games shaped by feminist agendas.

    You dont seem to understand nobody here is saying somebody forced them to do anything. The title is "Blizzard censoring themselfs" which is true.

    She should stop worrying about how a character in a game appears and start hitting the gym. I don't understand how people can complain about being teased about their appearance and not care enough to do anything about it. Maybe less gaming and more exercise would benefit Immamookin. Put the burger down pick up some fruit and stop feeling sorry for yourself.

    She would probably care a whole lot less about having a sexy character if she wasn't so insecure about herself. Seriously, complaining about not being sexy in a game because your nasty in real life is pretty pathetic. 

    Yes, I know I come off as an asshole but someone has to tell the truth.

    LOL he said it reduces her to a bland sex symbol.  This person equates sex to the word bland.  Eunich's opinions on sex shouldn't really matter.  You aren't suppose to have sex or be sexy because I want you to be otherwise.  That sounds like sexism to me.
    Are you onto something or just on something?

    Except for a vast majority of their audience, they aren't pleased with what they are doing so that mention of a change is NOT pleasing their audience. 

    None the less... Self-Censorship IS Censorship. How about we use an example I'm sure you would more likely be outraged by. If you posted something about Gay rights you would be ostracized by the vocal minority and slandered, your job at risk for people trying to get you fired all because you support such a thing.  Is it right the person doesn't say something because of the backlash so they keep quiet because a few vocal people will try and slander them?

    Not a shocker most of women I know don't like feminists and LGBT trash these 2 minorities proven them self to be very dump and with 0 social morals . Especially when Feminist march under LGBT flag LOL.
    That why Blizzard should be straight  blunt with these fuckers . And not give a single gaze in their side .

    Yes this 10% 15% fat bodies are hard and  close to unachievable for most women  but   20% fat is  damn hot .....things get ugly when women gives 0 shit about her looks just like feminists and it has nothing to do with marketing or these fake pixel butt and boobs
    Recently a model with 35 % Body fat percentage posted her photos in bikini damn shes super gorgeous ..and those round shape are so nice and jiggly ........but it  looks good because shes exercising.

    Low Body fat percentage  is hard to achieve for both genders especially after 25  with work and family but there is golden middle that is quite achievable when you do nothing and you reach 40 45 % body fat it becomes scary .

    That why Stupid feminist should be ignored they are RETARDED !

    I'd say these fake marketing models actually are forcing us to work out and achieve the body and shape we desire .
    hey be honest with you you want to be 100+Kg with pice of shit ? and sleep with an over wight  pice of shit ..
    or you want to kiss and hung a strong healthy body ?

    Hey let's censor blizzard for promoting work out and healthy body shapes !!! Make sens ? NO

    Blizzard just ignore dumb feminists

    Do you know what gets you also fired? Walk to your boss office and tell him he is incompetent idiot who does not know how to do his job.

    Much self-censorship?


    For every action, there is a reaction.

    If you consider every withdrawn action due possible negative reaction self-censorship, it makes the term meaningless since it is fundamental part of social behavior.

    After reading the article, it seems someone may have gotten to involved with their pixels and started taking things a bit to seriously...
