After leaving in protest, Asmongold applauds Blizzard's manager gigachad moment ...

The negative PR from Activision Blizzard continued today as key figures in WoW's player base expressed their support for Brian Birmingham, who resigned due to employee evaluation procedures.

Birmingham was adamant about a "stack-rank" system that imposed limits for employees who received sub-optimal reviews, which can ultimately affect their paycheck.

Two of the most powerful players in the world—of Warcraft—spent out in favor of Birmingham, with Asmongold, the world's top MMO creator on Twitch, earning him legendary recognition for falling on the sword.

The Twitch star described it as an absolute gigachad moment.

“I’m so glad to hear this.” And you know what the funny thing is: If everyone in the company just said the same thing as he did, this policy would be ineffective tomorrow.

Asmongold said that Blizzard "made a martyr out of him," and he encouraged other Blizzard employees to keep doing what they can do. If it meant that Blizzard's employees would not be "continuing to play Survivor or some other fucking '90s game show," he would be willing to endure many short-term inconveniences in the titles he plays.

Maximum, a co-owner of Team Liquid and WoW raid leader, called Birmingham an "absolute beast" and ridiculed the practice of grading employees on a curve, declaring it the "dirtiest shit" he'd ever heard.

"This guy has complete respect for anyone under him, no matter where he goes," Max said.
