It’s hard to think of a more damning determination: Facebook’s product inevitably led to the spread of hate speech and misinformation.

It’s a good guess, since lotteries with huge cash prizes have led to similarly huge upticks in vaccination rates in half a dozen states across the US, including Republican-led Ohio, Democrat-led California, and whatever-the-hell-is-happening-in Oregon. https://www.wired.com/story/wait-vaccine-lotte...

Re: Hearthstone Duels

Play weird decks to get different packs and lose a lot With the new expansion, there's a lot more good cards that all players get for free on hitting level 20 in ...

Facebook leadership has also repeatedly weakened or halted many initiatives meant to clean up misinformation on the platform because doing so would undermine that growth.
Pretty damning.

Re: Artifact 2.0 beta

Yeah, the writing was on the wall. They had stopped updating at the same pace.

It's weird. The game never got finished, but they didn't like the player counts so they stopped development.

Re: Hearthstone Duels

Like all Hearthstone, any game mode is gonna have some high variance real bullshit from time to time. I think it's more palatable in Duels, because no one can do the bullshit on every run due to the draft nature of the format, so it feels less suffocating.
