In-Game Walkouts In Support of #ActiBlizzWalkout Attended Across Realms and Regions
2021/07/28 at 12:57 PM
Players across regions and realms gathered in Oribos today to take part in a
in support of the
walkout organized by Activision Blizzard employees
This coordinated mass logout is being promoted as a better way for players with active subscriptions to make a visible statement to the company. Mass logouts send a clearer message via analyzable game data compared to simple inactivity, or just not logging on, both of which can be attributed to other variables. By specifically logging out all at the same time, the developers can see a demonstrated spike of purposeful logouts.
Players began to gather in Oribos from 9am PST / 6pm CEST, in preparation of the mass logout at 10am PST / 7pm CEST - coordinated to occur at the same time as the start of the walkout. While waiting, many groups spontaneously chose themes - such as having everyone mount up on a blue mount in a reference to the color chosen to represent the walkout.
The EU realm these screenshots were taken from opted for the
mount, described in the game as "A staunch defender of the forests of Azeroth". By the end, players even managed to make the shape of a very rough blue heart in the center.
Players also expressed their support for the walkout by spamming the in-game chat with the #ActiBlizzWalkout hastag.
