I haven't posted here since probably 2013 (though I miss you all and occasionally lurk), but I was reading about the Blizzard thing today, and you may be able to imagine my surprise when I saw the username UltimaterializerX in this article...

Blizzard only cares about the Chinese market
Jesus, Ulti, can you ever NOT go to extremes whenever you talk about videogames?

Also, because I cant stop finding this funny:
The worst video game ever made -Ulti during his contest writeups, on Hearthstone (and nearly every videogame released after 2001)

As someone who has all the single player content, every card in the game, and all but three heroes at gold portraits -Ulti, in the quoted article

Please dont get sarcastic. I just find it funny for somebody to declare they hate something when they still play it constantly.

I wasnt sarcastic. He has played this game that he theoretically hates way more than I have and ive played a shit ton of Hearthstone. Thats pretty funny.

I'm addition to all the lies, ulti is straight up not very good at hearthstone. He doesn't have the right temperament to not tilt from the smallest amount of variance and he is incapable of analyzing his play in a way that is not results oriented.

They may as well have quoted a blind person's opinion on a new art exhibit.

This is about Hong Kong, not me, and its pathetic that anyone would use that article as a means of trolling me. But given the usual suspects who are doing it (logged out and had a look), I am in no way surprised.

You guys are so far gone (I am not speaking to anyone that can actually read this post, fyi) that you cant put aside hatred of a user on the internet for even this. I feel sorry for you dudes, I really do, because you are clearly very unhappy. It isnt normal behavior to care that much about some guy on the internet you dont like. I moved on ages ago, thanks to Tom jokingly asking me to put on a TOWN Get Along Shirt. Hopefully you guys also grow up and learn to get along at some point. Its called being an adult.

And I tried Hearthstone during beta, because FD asked me to. He used to be a cool guy to play games with and he felt like the game had crazy potential. He was right! I thought it was neat. Played off and on until The Grand Tournament, which was a terrible set and subjected us to Mysterious Challenger. Came back when Karazhan came out. Played almost daily until this nonsense. As trash as the RNG is, and as bad as I think the game is, I did legitimately have a lot of fun with it. Ive actually been planning on rewriting my review from scratch, because Blizzard has finally started listening to the players. Dean Ayala implemented a ton of stuff we asked for.

However, I will only ever play a Blizzard game again if they reverse this. Im an Italian American raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey. When I decide to do anything, stubborn is an understatement.

And again, this is about Hong Kong and human rights in general. Shame on some of you.

Welcome to immortality, Ulti. And you achieved it by being the same person you always are about videogames: by calling every videogame ever the worst, even though you still dedicate countless hours to them. God I wish I could be you.

lol okay who is the Board 8er on Reddit who made this post

Ive truly stopped caring. Scoring a dream job with the ivy leagues will do that

Anyone wants to troll me anymore, especially people who KNOW Ive blocked them, its 100% on them. I truly and legitimately have far better things to do. I just feel sorry for them at this point. Its just no way to spend ones free time, bro. You get one life. Dont waste it on dumb things.
