Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

November 24, 2009 -

World of Warcraft maker Activision Blizzard is the latest target of a lawsuit by serial suer (or professional plaintiff) Erik Estavillo.

Filed this morning in the Civil Division of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, the civil complaint charges Activision Blizzard with “deceitful” business practices, as it “continues to maintain a harmful virtual environment to many of its customers by forcing them to follow the game’s sneaky and deceitful practices.”

Among Estavillo’s claims is that WOW is designed for a gamer “to walk or run at a calculated slow pace, resulting in the player taking longer to get where he or she needs to go in the game.” This slow pace, says the plaintiff, leads to a longer time needed to finish game play or quests, in turn leading to more subscription revenue for Activision Blizzard.

Estavillo also complains that faster transportation is not available until a player levels up accordingly, or purchases an expansion pack.

The plaintiff then likens his health problems (OCD, Agoraphobia, Panic Disorder, major depression and Crohn’s Disease) to the afflictions that ailed the late EverQuest gamer Shawn Woolley, who took his own life on Thanksgiving morning in 2001.  Estavillo stated that he “doesn’t want to end up like Shawn did as he [Estavillo] relies on videogames heavily for the little ongoing happiness he can achieve in this life.”

Estavillo subpoenaed Depeche Mode founder Martin Lee Gore and actress Winona Ryder to provide testimony on his behalf regarding the subject of alienation.

Gore was subpoenaed because “he himself has been known to be sad, lonely, and alienated as can be seen in the songs he writes,” and Ryder because of her and Estavillo’s common interest in the J.D. Salinger book The Catcher in the Rye. Ryder would be able to, “explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and will also testify to how alienation in the book can tie to alienation in real live/video games such as World of Warcraft.”

Estavillo is seeking punitive damages of $1.0 million and a court order that WOW implement changes that address the issues of his complaint.

Other lawsuits filed by Estavillo include one against Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), following a banning from the PlayStation Network, and a recent suit that targeted Microsoft and Nintendo—the former over an Xbox 360 red ring of death and the latter over a firmware update that disabled his Homebrew Channel.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

I have an idea. Lets sue him for disrupting the court of Law and that due to his mental problems he should be put into an institution where he can be taken care of without disrupting the world outside of his small white padded room.

Then, after we win the court case against him, we'll sue him for paying all of our legal fees. Thus making that small white room he should belong in all the more reason to put him there.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

When I read this article the first thing I thought was 'Does this guy even play this game WOW?' & if so he should know the game will take a long time to beat, no doubt. If not beat it at all! There will be patches & updates & new software versions for the game to download. Paid or not paid. I have yet to meet a person that plays WOW that has beat it. Yes it will take a long time & this guy has to factor in his lag on his computer, the ping, the ram that his computer could run the game, how much hard drive memory is on his computer & how much crap he has on his hard drive! But not anywhere in this article I read this guy plays WOW. Maybe he watches other people play it or hears about it. But for the guy he referred to that committed suicide in 2001 b/c of WOW, that guy had a problem like this guy that is complaining & sueing against WOW. The guy's mom that committed suicide tried to help her son & talk to him, but he wanted to play WOW all the time. Yes it could have been prevented, but the guy didn't want to talk or get help! Just like this guy wants to sue & not get mental help. & you can't finish the game play only the quests.

Two, Estavillo, this guy sueing, he needs mental help! All his mental health problems are preventable. But he seeks to sue a game rather than get help?!?!?! Here's a constallation for you Estavillo, I listen to my favorite music to get my spirits high & keep it that way! :)

& WOW has been out for 5 or 6 yrs now. Him going against what like 10 million people that play this game & love it........unlike him......get a life man. He has to help himself before he blames others. There are no damages, except this guy has mental problems! If I was the Judge I would laugh in this guys face & tell him this not very important.

Three, why would he read "Catcher in the Rye"? If it allienates & talks about someone being lonely, & the guy is already lonely then he will feel more depressed, more lonely & that's when I say "DONT READ THE BOOK!"

He needs to put down the games & help himself w/his life first. Get help!

So.. Miss.Used-to-like-stealing-things, some random spanish-named serial suer and a depressed singer try to attack the arguebly richest game developping studio today for making a game that used to be hard only to be made easier later?

Good luck. Really.

P.S.: As a WoW player (Or addict, depends on your p.o.v.), I am personally mad that we actually to level much less for quicker transports...

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

I'd say this is his most ridiculous lawsuit yet, but I'm not sure anything will top the "Nintendo's blocking my illegal hacking program, which I totally should have because it's the only way to get Rosalina (without trying hard) and not playing her is impeding my pursuit of happiness despite the fact that I clearly don't care about her because if I did I'd own the game she's actually from!" lawsuit.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

 Okay, seriously? Here's to hoping that the judge chases him out of the court room, gavel flailing wildly. I think adding paranoid schizophrenia or possible just psychosis to his list of maladies is a good idea. Considering that A) nobody's forcing you to continue playing and B) many people continue to play long after they hit the level cap, it's an incredibly thin argument.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

My God, this just keeps getting better and better.  I swear, it's like it's my birthday this month.  First, vindication on that whole 'global warming' load of bullshit, and now this? Hot damn, it's been hilarious lately.

Seriously though, how do Winona or Depeche Mode have anything to do with this?  Does he just want to meet them in person or something?

EDIT

My God, the hilarity never ceases. So, he's had them subpoenaed because Depeche Mode understands him because of their music (or at least the founder does, right?), and because Winona Ryder likes Catcher in the Rye?  My God this is a flimsy premise.  It's like having Michael Vick subpoenaed because he had a dog, when your case is about how you stole 12 million dollars from a bank.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

just curious- what "vindication"?  I haven't been paying attention to the global warming stuff happening the last few weeks. 

Thanks.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/nov/20/climate-sceptics-hacke...

Not exactly 'vindication'.  13 years of emails between a few people who work in a very specific realm of climant research resulting in a few suspsious sounding sentances.  Even the 'forging' sounds like it might be a lexigraphical issue since they are using the word 'trick', which like 'hack' has multiple meanings (i.e. if I talk about hacking a kernel module, it may or may not mean that I am breaking into someone's system... it could also mean I am doing hacky type things to make it work).

If this was not climate change related, it would probably be written off like any other 'pick and choose' conspiracy theory like the quotes 'proving' aliens are on the moon.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

13 years of emails between people who form some of the backbones of the 'global warming' bullshit argument, talking about how they pick and chose data, manipulated data (including graphs), and, my personal favorite, talking about how they put pressure on 'climate science' publications and scientific journals to NOT publish contrary evidence.

By the way, the research done by these people has been used to support ridiculous global warming legislation and projects in England and the USA, as well as in movies by jackasses like AL GORE.  Oh, and it's also wasted billions in government dollars.

Put simply, the numbers behind global warming are, for the most part, at least partly fraudulet, if not outright fabricated.  Through basically bullying scientific journals, these individuals, along with others, ensured that there would be no questioning of their theories.

Oh, and why don't you use a more current article?  Since this article was written, the files have been verified by the university.  Oh, and there's no way anyone who's not retarded could take the sentence "I've just completed Mike's Nature [the science journal] trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline." as anything but proof of fraud.  Note the whole HIDE THE DECLINE portion.

These 'scientists' were mostly using their skewed data to claim that the world has never been as hot as it is now. 

 

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

"Oh, and there's no way anyone who's not retarded could..."

There it is. Now it's officially an Austin_Lewis post.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Well, you can't throw the baby out with the bathwater here.  I know you are usually a typical republican in such matters (in your opinions I mean; not a criticism, just an observation) and would probably prefer to believe that there is no such thing as global warming, but let's not forget some of the sound principles in place here.  CO2 does indeed cause erosion of the ozone layer and in turn the lack of ozone means that more harmful rays from the sun are allowed through.  So can we at least agree that what is up for discussion is the EXTENT of global warming caused by man?

If you do some research into rising temperatures and such, there seems to be a 30 year trend.  The global temperatures have a cycle of rising and falling, and we are about to hit a period of falling*.   Whether or not that means the current global warming is simply a natural ebb and flow to the planet I frankly do not know, but I would be interested in seeing some proper figures.  At worst, if we are about to hit a decline in temperatures, then this would extend the period of time we have to act.  At best, the effect from man is not as significant as billed compared to the natural increase in global temperatures over the last few years.

What I refuse to believe is that a few badly worded emails are proof the all science on the subject is bogus, anymore than you believe that the Iraq war was unjustified because a few leaked memos and documents.  It would be wonderful to believe that we are not damaging the world as it will correct itself, but personally I would prefer to be cautious rather than assuming the best.

 

* This is going from the data I have seen and is limited to the last century.  I don't know if there are any records beyond that to prove that this trend is sound or coincidence.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Oh, and there's no way anyone who's not retarded could take the sentence "I've just completed Mike's Nature [the science journal] trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline." as anything but proof of fraud.  Note the whole HIDE THE DECLINE portion.

There's no way, anyone who's not retarded, could really believe, that a specific method of displaying the data would change the data. Show, where real data was manipulated or shut the hell up.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

The Daily Mail is good for something after all, it appears.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1230635/Scientist-climate-change-cover-storm-told-quit.html#

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1230943/Climate-change-scandal-BBC-expert-sent-cover-emails-month-public.html

When a leading environmrentalist calls the e-mails genuine, then the data must have been manipulated.

Former Chancellor Lord Lawson has called for an inquiry into the scandal, warning the credibility of UK science is at stake.

It comes amid pressure on the professor at the centre of the scandal to quit from his position at the CRU.

In one damning email, he appears to call the death of a climate change sceptic 'cheering news!'.

In other messages, researchers appear to be discussing manipulating data and how to dodge Freedom Of Information requests.

Another shows a climatologist from the U.S. admitting it was a travesty that the lack of global warming in recent years could not be explained.

In the UK, it's a crime to dodge or even to destroy documents that have requested under the  Freedom of Information Act.

Further proof that ideology overrides science, but we already knew that regarding the various video game studies done by Craig Anderson.

Real science cannot prove anything true, it can only prove something false. That's why everything in science is called a theory. And the theory of "man-made global warming" was proven false by the meteorlogical data over the last ten years and trends(Since 1998, we have been in a cooling trend; Arctic ice has increased by 25% over the last two years; Anarctic ice by 30% over the last ten years).

Maybe you should shut the hell up yourself.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Some hackers got access to emails to and from scientists that were leading the "global warming is going to destroy the planet in 5 years" panic that provides proof that the results they were promoting are either embelished or outright false.

He picked the wrong ones to sue.

Activision Blizzard has won some major legal battles recently.  And they will bury this guy. Their EULA is like 20 pages long. It won't even make it past a preliminary hearing, and then this guy will have to pay their legal fees, which they will claim to be in excess of 100,000 dollars. They'll own this guy. They could care less if he's disabled or not.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

All lawsuits in California should be suspended immediately.  This is getting rediculous and costing an already dying state millions.  The state of California should sue Erik for these lawsuits. 

This also reminds me of a quote from Leverage, "Eric that ends with a 'C' is nice and kind, Erik that ends with a 'K' is evil."  Oh I hope he tries sues TNT for degrading his "good" name. :D

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Directly, no. The defendant in the case however has full ability to file a counter suit when/if the ruling is in their favor to recoup the money lost in the trial.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

If he was a lawyer, and went after one target repeatedly, he could get nailed as a "frivilous litigator" and lose his licence to practice law.

They could possibly still do so, and they would attach any earnings he may get from anywhere. Ask Graham Berry what that's like.

"Estavillo stated that he “doesn’t want to end up like Shawn did as he [Estavillo] relies on videogames heavily for the little ongoing happiness he can achieve in this life.”

Is he REALLY saying "Give me what I want or I'll kill myself"?

Also gotta question the timing of this so soon after that other disabled gamer filed suit against Sony to make Everquest more accesible for visually-impaired people.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Gore was subpoenaed because “he himself has been known to be sad, lonely, and alienated as can be seen in the songs he writes,” and Ryder because of her and Estavillo’s common interest in the J.D. Salinger book The Catcher in the Rye. Ryder would be able to, “explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and will also testify to how alienation in the book can tie to alienation in real live/video games such as World of Warcraft.”

What?!? Generally when you subpoena someone, doesn't it actually have to be relevant to the suit? How does alienation in song lyrics and The Catcher in the Rye have anything to do with the level at which you obtain mounts in World of Warcraft??

...oh right, he's a nutbar...

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

At least we can see a reason behind these ones. If the case goes forward, as unlikly as it seems, he gets to scratch off two people from his "I totally wanted to meet you my whole life" list.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

"...leads to a longer time needed to finish game play..."

At which point, his argument fails.

This is a never ending game.  With additional stories, quests, etc., being added, this game will never reach a conclusion.  Even death of the character does not conclude the game.

Therefore, long or short travel does not lead to more subscription time.  More stories/sub-plots/etc do.  And this is the intent of a continuing MMO. 

Solo games have new parts and stories for the characters (Max Payne I, Max Payne II, etc).  Some have addons (see the NeverWinter series).

MMOs keep you subscribing by adding new quests or major new expansion packs.  There's no point in offering a subscription service if there is an actual end to the game. 

So longer play time to reach one goal is irrelevant as there will ALWAYS be additional goals to meet.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

I think there is some merit to the complaint that they try and drag thigns out to much in MMOs and most RPGs these days.....

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Most major MMOs don't try to drag things out at all anymore, WoW least of all - Blizzard makes no bones about the fact that the game is at level 80, 1-79 is just story exposition and gameplay training. In BC they significantly reduced the pain of leveling 1-60, in Wrath they dropped three levels of mount training by 10-20 levels and slashed costs, in 3.3 they're making several key class abilities trained as high as level 20 free at level 1 and overall buffing all classes at very low levels, and in Cataclysm they're revamping 1-60 quest progression to be smoother like BC/wrath content, and itemization to be less of a train wreck. And if you've already done it once, heirloom items give you all sorts of ways to make it even easier the second time around.

Between that and the the way they've handled the emblem system in Wrath, at any given time the only aspect of the game that's being at all drawn out is the current top-tier raid's hard mode progression, and even that doesn't hold a candle to a few years ago. When I was raiding MC/BWL/AQ40/Naxx40, a guild could raid 6 hours a night 5-7 days a week and nobody would bat an eye when they used the term "casual" to describe themselves. Now, you can raid 4 hours a night 3 days a week and you're considered hardcore by default.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Possibly, but it's certainly not a sue-able offense.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

I didn't mind at DDO. They do call them dungeon crawls in the pen-and-paper.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

Someone forgot to tell Captain Inbred that Blizzard recently reduced both the level requirements and cost of all types of mount a couple of patches ago, specifically cretins like him were BAWWWWING over having to actually work towards something in a game.

Whonder who he will sue next, Nintendo again, maybe, for not releasing their "games that play themselves so you can pass a tough section" quick enough?

Actually, from what I understand, New Super Mario Bros. Wii has a feature that will show you how to get past tougher parts of the game.

Re: Winona Ryder, Depeche Mode Factor in WOW Lawsuit

 While that's true, it only works in single player mode.  My sister, brother in law, and myself died enough times in 3-Castle that it would have activated Super Guide, but since it was a multiplayer game there was no Super Guide.

Probably for forcing him to die eight times before it will help him, making him feel even more incompetent and worthless.

Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
