What you were doing at the moment when Activision Blizzard acquisition news dropped?

Drinking my morning coffe and checked Xboxera a few minutes after that first thread was posted.

I woke up around 10 am by an early phone call. I was thinking to sleep for another hour but I decided to check on the site updates, starting with this place. The moment I saw the breaking news thread, I never went back to sleep and I was fully awake like someone injected coffee in me.

I went to Twitter to see if the news is real and not a troll. I saw Klob’s famous three words and long behold, it’s real. I went to speak with my brother and I couldn’t mouth a word on what just happened. It’s still surreal to see it even happened. What a day and it’s only January.

I was playing Valorant. Saw Jason say the rumour thing so I shared it to a few people backing it up with the knowledge I have about leaks,news,etc(no, i’m not a leaker, i mean im well informed and they arent).

Literally 1 hour later or so I’m on the bus to work and boom Xbox confirms it. I almost screamed in the bus xD

I just finished Borderlands and saw a Jason Schreier tweet in the XboxEra discord. Clicked on it, started laughing.

“Haha, Schrier with a 1 or loeercase l”

Then I saw it was Schreier and then a literal minute after the XboxWire tweet.

It was in the afternoon for me, got home and had a lot of stuff to do so it took a while before I sat down to check the forums. Almost choked on my coffee and sat there for hours just reading and taking it all in.

Forgot about prepping dinner, got yelled at for that and I tried to argue it was important gamer business. Slept on the couch.

I dropped my daughter off at school and took the dog out for a walk. It’s cold as hell here right now so I just stuffed my phone in my coat pocket. Came back inside started to make coffee and remembered my phone was in my pocket and wondered why I had so many notifications. Then I looked and yelled “Holy Shit!”. I had to sit down. Scared my fiancé but once I told her what was happening she said “should I buy more Microsoft stock?” Me “YUP!”

I was working, then @beastmode10 hit up the Discord with the news and I almost thought he was joking.

It’s still a lot to process.

While waking up, I checked the tablet, had alerts from other discord server, saw the article and tweets then thought “So they’re really doing this? Today’s meltdowns are going to be something else. There goes getting anything work related done today.”

I was just having breakfast before going to work, I remember seeing the thread on here and assumed it was some stupid clickbait or something, then I realized it was real and lost my mind

Lol I tried to get work done that day, but it was impossible between lurking here and reading OtherERA and Twitter.

Zero productivity that day.
