Epilepsy warning: empowered artifact weapon
The constant flickering and screen shaking gave me a seizure almost immediately. Please disable this graphic.

Epilepsy warning: empowered artifact weapon
Thanks for the feedback on this! I've passed this along to the developers but I just wanted to drop a note that I was in the process of cleaning up this thread.

No two people who suffer from epileptic seizures due to photo sensitivity are triggered by the same things. It could be a "tame" animation to you but causes a nightmare for someone else. Please be aware of that before you make an insensitive comment that causes me to have to delete it and/or suspend you. It's annoying.

Here's something I agree with since I feel that video games SHOULD be avoided for people with epilepsy. Especially since I know people with this condition. I apologize if you don't agree or if it offends someone, but I believe in freedom of speech here in the USA.

"I think it's pretty sweet.

But if that gives you a seizure, and I mean this respectfully, you should limit your exposure to games. That's a pretty tame animation."

If Blizzard can not respect this harmless opinion,then maybe I should take my money elsewhere, to another more wholesome hobby.


There's a difference in stating your opinion versus making an insensitive comment and it shows that you didn't really read OPs posts and why they feel its an issue. It's an opinion yes and you're totally fine to express that opinion but if that's all you're going to say then I'm just going to delete it if I'm trying to go through and clean up a thread. If the thread wasn't as bad as it was I likely would have left it up because you're right it is fairly harmless, it lacks any sort of empathy but that's another discussion.

You have no freedom of speech here because we're not the government. That's not how any of this works. I'd recommend reading this here where Vrakthris elaborated on it.

The Constitutionally guaranteed right of freedom of speech applies to the government created laws, not to privately owned companies. As with any other establishment governed by those laws, we are able to prohibit certain types of behavior. Just as you are not permitted to yell fire in a crowded theater neither are you permitted to use inappropriate language and subject matter in our game or on our forums. You are welcome to your opinion, and we encourage you to discuss the game with your fellow players. However, we ask that you maintain a civil and constructive tone while doing so. If you do not, we reserve the right to temporarily or permanently suspend access to the game.

Maybe it's time for a lock, considering how vitriolic posters are getting? Thank you Ysithiens ☺️


I agree. Thanks everyone for the discussion but this has been seen and passed along so I think we're done here.
