Elon Musk said on May 10th, “Elden Ring』Published his own character build. At a later date, overseas media Kotaku responded to this. He is making fierce criticism.
Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla, Inc. of the United States. In addition to being one of the world’s leading wealthy people, he is a person who often attracts attention for his words and actions on SNS, mainly on Twitter. ”TweetIn addition to being talked about, it moved to the acquisition of Twitter and reached an agreement for 44 billion dollars (about 5.7 trillion yen) and attracted attention (Bloomberg).
It seems that Mr. Musk also plays games. You can see references to the Overwatch, BioShock, and Fallout series on his Twitter account. Also, in the past, he posted a netmeme image of Sachiko Koshimizu of “THE IDOLM @ STER CINDERELLA GIRLS” to disturb the community, and was pointed out that the fan art of “NieR: Automata” was reprinted without permission. There was also a turmoil such as (related article 1, related article 2).
And Mr. Musk seems to be playing “Elden Ring” these days. On May 10th, he revealed his “Elden Ring” character build in response to a Twitter user who consulted with him that he was having trouble building a magician character. Musk is an intelligence / skill build, with a shield in his left hand and a wand, rapier and claws in his right hand. In addition, he conveys his own points such as “replace Talisman frequently”, “it is important to do a lot of small damage”, and “use ghost summoning by ashes”. Although it includes advice, it is in response to the user’s voice saying “I want to refer to Mr. Musk’s build”.
However, overseas media Kotaku seems to have been unable to allow Mr. Musk’s build. On May 12, the magazine published an article denouncing him and his build, taking up the tweet mentioned above. Kotaku is critical of Mr. Musk in the first place. For, Mr. Musk is often talked about in his words and deeds that are critical of liberals, leftists and political correctness. On the other hand, Kotaku is a medium that throws a lot of liberal discourse. In other words, Mr. Musk is a nemesis for the magazine.
Kotaku’s criticism of Mr. Musk is fierce. In the above-mentioned article, the magazine ridiculed his political remarks as “like a 13-year-old boy even though he is 50 years old.” “If the player can enjoy” Elden Ring “whatever the character build, it’s a good build,” he said, but in a long sentence, he decided that Mr. Musk’s build was a “shameful build.” I’m analyzing the problem.
For some reason, the build analysis is described in unison with Mr. Musk’s behavior and criticism of management policy. The main point is, “Mr. Musk’s builds and advice are too unfocused and too complicated,” he said. Although he said that the advice to “use the ghost summoning by ashes” was correct, he finally touched on the harsh working environment at Tesla’s Shanghai factory and landed on criticism of Mr. Musk. He calls his build a “shitty mage build.”
In the title of the article, Mr. Musk is also ridiculed as “Maidenless.” This is a net meme derived from the setting during “Elden Ring”, and is spreading mainly to overseas communities. For example, it is a nuance like “virgin” when used as a derogatory word.
Mr. Musk has a series of outlandish words and deeds, and in a sense, he himself is a net meme himself. In addition, he has a lot of careless words and deeds, and it will be unavoidable to be criticized. However, the character build in “Elden Ring” is the freedom of the individual player. Mr. Musk, who is noisy, would not be criticized for that. Also, in this article by Kotaku, Mr. Musk casually said, “Chocolate milk is very delicious.”TweetEven was the subject of ridicule. I personally don’t sympathize with Mr. Musk’s ideas, but I think chocolate milk is delicious.
