If we allow this type of thing to happen and we accept Blizzards (or any other companies) excuse, then we eventually fall prey to one day possibly living under a communist style, tyrannic government. Walk away from Blizzard, the NBA and Hollywood for good, till they go broke. Maybe then things will turn around and a message will be sent that we do NOT tolerate ANY type of acceptance for those who oppose freedom, liberty and justice! Im compiling a list of companies that do business with China or any other communist oppressive government and I WILL be boycotting them, FOREVER! @ @ @ @

unpopular opinion here so im ready to be fucked up in the ass. u can be salty at me all day i dont give a fuck. but im here to share my opinion. that guy, i can respect him for trying to be patriotic and stuff. i really admire ppls like this. but doing that in a game ? on a tournement ? in the highest rank of the game ? on stream ? LIVE ? on top of that, on a blizzard's game ? dude...i know blizzard is fucked up thes days but im pretty sure every fkin games in the world has some rules about politic stuff...might sounds stupid but game developers dont want that kind of stuff in their games...i mean, at all. talking politics in games is basically a suicide for your character/account. (good exemple here, in Poe, i just asked why trump was at the white house in general chat and i got a mute) you dont need to be a pro to know that, every gamers know that.. you just cant cry out loud, wearing a gas mask and shout out live ''liberate hong kong, revolution of our age!'' and exepting nothing to happen after that...

HK "Protesters" is just bunch of Rioters. They are fighting for their own dictatorship and fascism. People with different opinion are beat up. Their personal information are exposed. Their family are threatened. Their freedom are compromised. They are doing fascism in the name of "freedom" "democracy" and "human rights".

At the end of the day people gotta understand, companies aren't supposed to be getting into politics. Their purpose is to make money, they haven't come out and said they agree with China or side with them, they're completely steering clear of the whole thing. They run a card game, not a news show or whatever. Yea I think they handled it improperly but people saying hearthstone doesn't care about fans or whatever is wrong imo

In my opinion the real issue isn’t even that Blizzard censored someone for speaking their political beliefs on camera. It’s that they did it for the Chinese government’s sake is what really pisses me off. If a company doesn’t want to be labeled with a certain political belief by someone else’s actions I can understand that, though if that was the only driving force here then their punishment went overboard. This is not a “maintaining neutrality” move, it’s a pro-China one.

China actually does have camps, mostly in the north-west where they "re-educate" the muslims in that region, and they don't do it kindly. China is actually becoming a very dangerous state, it's like the 30's all over again but instead of Germany it's now China's turn to make huge crimes against humanity without the world caring.

This is the hairy side of international investors in other countries. Politics and business can clash, creating a terrible rift. And the business here, is very consumer-based. It was always a tight rope, and now people are falling off this tight rope. The only way is down, the only outcome is splat. On one hand, you have a big nasty corporation who wants money and has an obligation to their investors and other people involved, and on the other hand you have the consumers that you make the product for that can see what you are doing. But in this case, a large minority of your target consumer can fizzle away if you don't appease them, and risk alienating the majority, ala China. We were the risk. They took the risk, they lost the risk, keeping in mind this all happened very quickly in real time. That being said, they still have the Chinese market, and they still have our market, but they have so much bad PR right now. I don't support what they did. I see what they were thinking. I support everyone's right to be free. It's a tough situation. I see the business side, but you can't infringe on freedom to make a buck (or millions of bucks).

You can spend thousands on Magic the Gathering, but you can also resell that thousand-dollar worth of cards to reclaim part, if not all of the cost. I personally know a guy who has over 3 million $$ in his bank account just by buying and selling MTG cards every month. Can you do the same in Hearthstone? HS is a sunk investment. Any money you throw at the game you can kiss them goodbye.

I genuinely wonder who needs who more, do we need China's business or do they need ours? Right now they're saying "abide by our rules or we won't do business with you" and some companies are capitulating, BUT can we say "abide by OUR rules or we won't do business with YOU?" I mean, China spent several thousand years of its history basically isolated from the rest of the world (and also under the control of oppressive regimes that hurt and exploited its people) so this is par for the course for them, but if we said "we don't need your money, and we're going to support people who want to get away from you" would they actually fight on that hill or could we force a compromise? I'm wondering if we could decide to suck up to India instead, it isn't as rich as China but they also have a billion people and I don't think their government is nearly as problematic as China's is being right now.

Freedom of speech huh? What if a gamer shouts "911 good job do it again" right in the middle of event? Would US ask Blizzard to ban that person? If so, isn't that suppressing freedom of speech? If you ask me, bringing politics into gaming is asking for trouble. You can't satisfy all fans with picking any side, and some business must be lost. So stupid.
