For the Record: WG Developer Signing Anti-Hate Open Letter
Hello everyone, recently, an open letter from the developers to members of gaming community was published. Its purpose is to make “community a cleaner place”. To quote it: We believe that everyone, no matter what gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or disability has the right to play games, criticize games and make games without getting harassed or threatened. It is the diversity of our community that allows games to flourish. If you see threats of violence or harm in comments on Steam, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook or reddit, please take a minute to report them on the respective sites. If you see hateful, harassing speech, take a public stand against it and make the gaming community a more enjoyable space to be in. Thank you The author should start playing World of Tanks. He’d go crazy within hours. Either way, it’s a… nice gesture. There are over 600 signatures under it, including the one belonging to one Matt Parker from Wargaming Chicago (whoever that is, the people are mostly Americans though). I find it decent. Let’s celebrate this proclamation of decency with the best quote from Wargaming developers! Storm: “Suffer faggot, your suffering makes us happy!” Nah, seriously, I like Storm and SerB for being direct, it’s much better than endless buttering and sugarcoating.
