Re-figuring Innovation in Games to tackle lack of diversity in games at university course levelRe-figuring Innovation in Games to tackle lack of diversity in games at university course level

No initiative in the world is going to make more women go into STEM fields if the women don't want to go into those fields of their own free will.
Tradition is a dirty word in academia I guess, but there ain't nothin wrong with women doing whatever they please with their lives, even if it means only 10% or less programmers will be female.
Just make a quota for men and don't let any extra boys join a CS program until they bring a woman with them. Problem solved. Oh, that's an insane idea? So is claiming women don't go into STEM 'cause someone called them a bad name on the internet.

How the deck is stacked against women in e-sportsHow the deck is stacked against women in e-sports

Every single pro player can tell you a similar story about harassment. It's so commonplace in these games that I get real tired of the same old stories about how x and y would have been great if it wasn't for twitch chat or random pubs being mean to them.
Just look at what happens when Sumail (a 15 year old millionaire) plays a match. Twitch chat is full of terrorist emotes and memes. Did trolls stop him from winning millions? Is a 15yo kid more mentally stable than every female pro or is there a difference in skill between these ladies and his fellow male pros?
The whole 'harassment doesn't let us improve past a point' tale is also debunked with Sumail's example. Kid played his first pro dota match this year.
Also, a girl that could compete with the top pro guys would be sponsored so quickly and by so many companies she would probably have sponsored water coming out of her taps at home.

ps. I would personally love to see female pros show up that can beat the established male pros.

No Co8 Temple of Elemental Evil, but 8 Skyrim mods? Subjective lists, I get it, but that's pure nonsense.

FIFA 16 to feature female squads in a series firstFIFA 16 to feature female squads in a series first

People have complained for years that EA doesn't do enough to differentiate its yearly sports franchises. They add a pretty cool feature (even if it really didn't take much work).. and the response has been derision and even anger. Gamers never cease to amaze me.


Good on EA for making such a simple addition to FIFA.

People who play FIFA religiously don't really care about a 12 new teams that can only play each other, (which is also a cop out, they should have just made the women's teams the worst teams in the game but able to play men) especially when EA is bragging about how much effort went into this. Effort that could have gone into other things. You say it didn't take much work but the article above states otherwise.

I play this game a couple of times per year and I will certainly play with women's teams at least once, but I question if this feature is bringing anything worthwhile to the people who buy this game year after year. 12 teams with long haired people that just play with themselves? Wow, great feature.

What if a woman disagrees with another woman ? Sign me up for a sex change at some point, I want to be the last woman on the station.
