After reading Murdin's post I started applauding.

Congratulations.

I think we all know why he's really doing all of this and it has nothing to do with any genuine interest in the thing that happened, the figures involved, or even the people who've started the controversy. He's starting this because its VIDYA and he's so, so very mad that anyone would dare change something even during beta testing and such.

Because the manosphere, to which he is beholden for many of his posts and points of view, is enraged about this. So he has to be enraged about it too.

He really has no opinions of his own, except what he is spoon fed and told to post.

You overestimate my investment in this.  I think the whole thing is ridiculous.
There's a kernel of truth in this, as with certain other issues UPs interest in the matter lies entirely in staying on message with issues of the day a certain faction have reached quorum on whether or not he personally gives a damn about them.

The new pose seems a lot more fitting than the previous one. It practically shouts "look at me! I'm perky and cheerful!" which seems to fit the character.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeah, the original complaint was not "no sexy, sexy is bad" it was more "shoving her arse towards the male gaze is out of context with the character." Problem solved.

I think her victory pose should have been on all fours with her arse in the air, a hand on each cheek spreading them. With the current pose I don't receive sufficient titillation to climax during the game.

Maybe this was Blizzard's plan all along.  Controversy=attention, after all.

And now you see conspiracies in everything that doesn't go your way.

It's just a possibility.  And I really didn't care either way.

Just wanted to give my two cents.  I thought the overreactions on both sides were illuminating.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

Translation: I care. No butt removal will go unremarked on my watch. There will be no censorship of my right to ogle without a fight!
