/2...that means things associated with it are up for debate. I hate how companies will change things ACROSS THE BOARD for all when they already can change it selectively for totalitarians like the Chinese government and have been for years! What changed?
It is just baby steps in treading carefully going forward with the relatively recent watchlist China has on a plethora of games. Promoting “incorrect values” (China’s own words; not mine, I actually like fan service) is a big one and since their current attention is on WoW....
Blizzard has actually addressed how the night elf women look on the old box art, they gave those cloths to men. If you are in the woods of Darkshore alone nowadays you might find yourself jumped by a bunch of fancy lads in sheer evening-wear.
@Dennis Tiebe Yea, exactly. Blizz has been preparing for this for quite a while now, but then again we all know that money is in popularity- I mean, even you draw strips thinking about it, Jo. Objectification is now bad for PR and they're preparing for the next decade of revenues.
I find it hard to care about "censorship" of anything that isn't actual nudity. Making someone's chest size smaller or lengthening an actual child character's skirt just isn't something I'm even going to notice.
"retcon"? Am I missing something, cos seems more like it's keeping it up to date, tieing into current WoW stuff. So..the slippery slope argument seems a bit odd, it's not trend following. But yes, rule 34 will always exist.
