Blizzard Removes More Suggestive Dialogue In Patch 9.1.5 Update
The dialogue is tied to player character jokes and flirts.
Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges.
In an ongoing response to the allegations of sexual harassment, Blizzard continues to remove what may be considered some of the less savory content from World of Warcraft in recent updates. The most recent removals occur in Patch 9.1.5 and focus primarily on the voice emotes for player characters tied to jokes and flirts. These include things like the Blood Elf male saying “Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” and an ongoing list of “Yes, these are real…” comments by the ladies of various races. Other comments reference stalking and “brass balls”, as well as including the obligatory fart or anatomy joke. The full list, which can be found on WoWhead, is pretty lengthy.
Also removed in this patch is a line by King Ymiron. The line in question occurs as a result of players annoying him by clicking on him repeatedly. At the end, he rolls into a long string of (censored) profanity. This is also removed in 9.1.5.
If you’re looking for a little insight as to why the devs choose to remove the things they have so far, Blizzard did recently publish a post on the WoW website. According to the post, the most recent set of changes were based on both player and internal feedback, noting that “some in-game content is inconsistent with [their] goal of building an inclusive and welcoming game world."
