Are we really at the point where Blizz believes they have to shield people from the mere concept of failure? Because, while I’ll usually disagree with the elitists decrying how the game is now a coddling mess, this is the first solid sign that I’ve seen that screams yes, it actually is.

Trying to protect people from realising they are terrible when they in fact are? Where’s the impetus for improvement meant to come from? It just makes one want to weep.
