I've never bought a game from MS before, and the only ones I got from the Blizzturds are the first two Starcraft games from 1999ish.
Microsoft does not care about its customers either so it's a good match, they can suck each others' dicks.

Just more monopolised garbage. Just like the film industry is sold to Disney et al and it becomes want to watch a James Bond film etc. well you need to subscribe to so and so at x per month. Want to watch Toy story for the kids another subscription and so it goes. Life should be a subscription that you can cancel whenever. Because it’s friggin Dire at times. Our gas & electricity is going up 76% in April! Same for all, no choice. Pay it or don’t use it. Of course we don’t need it to wash,cook or heat with. Just a “luxury”…

You must eat an incredible amount if ‘your food prices went up 200%’.
I’m surprised you can see your dick and compare it, with the size of your gut!

I don't follow your logic.
Do you consume more gas and electricity when their prices go up?
I'll give you a hint: I said priced went up (which has absolutely nothing to do with my or anybody else's consumption).

For a start you completely missed the joke back at you.
Next you haven’t a clue what the climate is like where I live nor do you understand that wages do not follow suit.
Also, the *biggy* food is dynamic. You don’t eat the same things and you have flexibility.
You completely missed the mark.
Gas,electricity has gone up 76% per household! we have no alternative to another supplier as they have all gone bust due to the price of wholesale gas.
So get it this way.
If we use the same gas,electricity it’s the old price + 76% on top of it.
Understand now.
You can change food and get cheaper alternatives because it’s no such thing as bananas 200% more expensive and steak 200% more expensive. It’s just a general ruling overall.
It’s like saying petrol and diesel is gone up flat rate everywhere at 76%. You can’t stick anything else in your gas tank other than going electric (EV) understand now.
It’s pretty much plain English
We can’t exactly run the house on petrol and windmills!
So using the same amount of gas/electricity is just like using an extra 76% when you can’t afford it.
Plain english

say we used 89 of electricity and gas per month cooking is electric, heating is gas and so is hot water (showers, washing dishes etc)
So 89 + 76% = 156. So instantly in April we are charged 156 per month. If I came up to you and took an extra 67 bucks out your wages that you never spent or used you would be fucking raging and pissed off, or how about I took 67 bucks off your food bill per week or gas for your car. Nobody in their right mind would think it’s acceptable.
This is affecting a population of 67 million people.

Seems I did - it did not sound like a joke and it still does not.
