    I agree that by even addressing the original complaint, blizzard opened up a can of worms, especially in the way that they did it, and only made worse by the way they tried to backtrack and say that it had nothing to do with anything other than them not liking the pose. It just looked bad.

    Admittedly, I have not closely followed the development of the game but I don't get the argument that the pose in question doesn't fit her personality. Having a certain personality type precludes one from looking over their shoulder now? How does that work?

    You would think blizzard would know better than most that they are never going to please everyone and that if they made a design decision that a majority of people are fine with, making needless changes to show how "progressive" they are makes them look like they are pandering as much as they are trying to convince everyone that they are not.

    I don't understand how people can call that a butt anyway...it's pretty much a Hank Hill butt.

    What's really funny is that you could make the argument that the new pose is more sexualized than the old one.

    You could also say it makes me want to punch her in the face.

    I really think blizzard took the middle path here and gave a dog a bone.

    Blizzard is daring the "SJW" contingent to push it, lol. Perfect response to this non-issue issue.. I'll allow it.

    I approve of the new pose, now her armor covered tits can be seen at the same time.
    Truly an improvement.

    The thought of the SJWs reaction to this feels so good i'm pretty sure it's now my fetish

    Remembered when all Blizzard had to contend with were people complaining about no LAN for SC2, always online mode for Diablo 3 and that Diablo 3 was too cartoony? Good times.

    No LAN for Star Craft 2 was serious business, though.

    The only thing we can take away from this is that Blizzard in the 21st century only knows how to be consistent at making bad decisions

    Yea.. kind of what made the original a hit. Not an accurate comparison Craigy. I'm disappointed.
