This makes me laugh only because of all of the shit that has come to light. Like, is ActiBlizz actually trying to claim that workers would get a fairer shake by dealing directly with the company, rather than unionizing and collectively bargaining? Like the same company that has done all of this shit — not in some distant past where “things were different back then”, but like within the last year?

I get that this is standard anti-Union tactics, but it really makes me laugh in this case. Like, cut your losses guys. You made this happen.

The exact same shit as always

Not gonna lie, if you asked me even a year ago what American game dev would be the first to unionize, it would have taken me a lot of guesses before I got to ABK. But their C-suite has been so cartoonishly villainous throughout this whole process that an email like this would probably only encourage people to unionize faster
