Have Blizzard come out with a statement on this yet? I get that it's an independent organization, but it would be nice for them to speak out about this kind of shit.

I don't think they have, but I guess they will release a statement soon now that the news is kinda going viral.

And like Dice, I don't understand why this needs to be so complicated. It's a cardgame. You can reach a high level of play as long as you got a decent brain, atleast one working eye and one hand with a functional finger to click things with. What does gender have to do with that? Japanese cartoons about children's cardgames are more progressive than this...

Quote
Is there anything preventing them from just... you know... not do what they say?
I mean, what can they do?

Worst case a woman wins the Finnish tournament, but isn't allowed to go on to the international matches Which could be kinda bad for the Finnish organisation since money is involved, but on the other hand, wouldn't a good reputation be worth more?

(BTW I competed in a women's Tetris competition once at an animecon. Felt really bad about it afterwards, because it wasn't so much as a competition for women as it was a one for 'girlfriends of gamers who kinda know how to hold a controller and want to play a game, too, but not one of those violent ones, maybe some nice puzzle game or something'. I absolutely crushed the other players. Finals were over in less than a minute. So, if I were a professional Hearthstone player, I'd want to compete with the best, no matter what their gender is. If I weren't competing against men and remained in a special little league (that doesn't even exist!), I doubt I would be taken very seriously as a professional gamer.)

Had to look her up, but...

"If you had a card designed after you, what would it do?

Hafu — An 8 Mana 1/1 with Battlecry: Pick any card in your opponent's deck and play it. >: )"

That's so evil! Love it >:D

(Of course it would never be made because it would give you the advantage of being able to view your opponents entire deck, but still, I love copying/stealing cards :D )

Edit: And she has an army of penguins! That's so cute 0_0

Holy crap, I'm suddenly ten times more interested than I ever was in this game that will never exist.  Damn you.

And so Bandai has decided its time to go home and took their ball with them.

Apple Shenanigans may also be afoot.

Good riddance.  It was the worst version of the game with a dubious "always online" requirement (making it unplayable if you didn't have an internet connection).

On this date, the app and all associated services will become unusable. This includes In-App Purchase items already purchased and save data.

I can't even find the words on how scummy this is.

And this is the reason why the cloud sucks generally speaking (especially for always on stuff), because your ability to access the cloud is entirely dependent on a company feeling like giving you access.

So a Nintendo Direct went down in Japan and nothing of value was mentioned (unless you care about JP release dates).


Geno Edit: On no guys.... Now what are to do with our XBones?

Wait...yup, there went my heart...

I mean, I don't watch streams a lot, but Twitch is...Twitch. It's a pretty big thing, and the last couple of big things Google got they didn't do so well with. Definitely not looking forward to this...

Sometimes I feel like the only one thinking, "Hey, uh... I know it's not a monopoly, but maybe we should stop Google from getting a foot in EVERY door?"
