It's sad to see a former great company like Blizzard bend its knees to their Chinese overlords. Hopefully Blizz will realize their mistake and reinstate the player but more likely China demands full obedience from Blizz. As an aside: the rules or tos for these players are just insane and so vague that anything can be deemed an infraction of the rules and your price money can be withheld.

It's a scary environment to work it I would think.
There is too much money in China so they will do all they can to stay on their good side. Especially with Diablo Immortal coming, the main target of which is China. Simple business decision, nothing else. Sad, but that's how it is.

tremere110: Technically, the player broke a rule by making a political statement. Taking away his hard earned prize money and banning him and the announcers as well was way overkill though. Seriously, when all they did was take down the stream most people just shrugged.

But this? Too far Blizzard, too far...
Political statements have been made in tournaments before, no consequences. China gets special treatment as it seems.

It' funny to see Blizzard and HK discussed here.
It's my first post on GOG, and I`ll try to say something about China as a Chinese.

The only way HK declare independence is China loses World War III in future. It doesn`t matter with how warlike Chinese goverment is . It`s 1.4billion Chinese people‘s will.

In 1840, Opium War I broke out.
In 1841 Jan 26 , UK forcibly occupied HK.
In 1842 Aug 29, unequal treaties (The Convention of Nanjing) were made under duress, HK island was ceded to UK.
In 1860 ,Opium War II broke out. Oct 24 The Convention of Peking was made under duress, Kowloon peninsula(part of HK) was ceded to UK.
In 1898 Jun 9, UK forced Qing( Goverment at that time) to sign the HK lease agreement which last 99 years till 1997.

We suffered the ignominy of weak for hundreds of years。
No matter the goverment was Qing Dynasty or is the Communist Party, every politician and Chinese people will not allow any separatists.

“For Freedem?” HK may is the only place where legally doesn`t have treason.

70 years ago, Chinese Goverment fanatically call on Chinese peole liberate the world into Communism.
But after the Great Cultural (1966~1976) and the famine (1959~1961) we know that how ridiculous to persist in ideology fight.
The most important thing is enough food for live, better life for their people,formidable army for preventing war.

Now, 70 years later, you "west" people still believe that the world should be "free for freedem or democracy".
“I think they're dictatorship, we should liberate them from the wrong ideology and political system."
The player broke a rule. He hijacked Blizzard's platform for his own agenda. The player himself said that he knew that he would get into trouble. Did Blizzard overreact? Yes they did. But like others have said there is a ton of money involved. Yes it is sad that the Chinese government is trying to control our freedoms. Look what happened to the NBA team The Houston Rockets because of what the GM had said. Also look to what happen to the creators of South Park because of an episode about China. I do agree that GOG should stay far way from anything political.

Yup, add lack of consistency to the list of Blizzard's sins. I suspect profit is a large motivating factor in this.

The Chinese government whoring out it's labor force to the elitist scum that waged the opium war has *not* resulted in a higher standard of life for all Chinese people -- it's resulted in the rise of Chinese billionaires.

Both East *and* West are philosophically bankrupt. Our only hope lies in refusing to accept the rule of those who have cast aside their humanity and care only for wealth and power, and our time is fast running out.

The gap between the wealthy and poor is a worldwide and historic problem to all countries.
Our goverment has been finding a way to sovle it for decades.
Before 1978, Chinese goverment even did some policy which extremely wrong.
There was not an available way.
Welcome if you have a chance to come China,see the real China besides Shanghai, HK or Beijing,which has the same poblem and vigor compared with others.
It's not fake booming apart from some metropolis. We people and goverment always tried to make our homeland better.
However the Communist Party really did wrong policy and do has corruption now, we will never want to go separation.

aegislee: Nothing inappropriate with you and your country even your ideology , if you west people do not support the HK independence only becaucse those people enounced the word "freedom" or "democracy". Meanwhile west media report little about the terrorist attacks in HK which now torment ordinary people.
It might behoove you to watch more in-depth coverage across multiple outlets on the protests and situation. Oh wait... you're in China.

Some of us know more about this situation than you think.

Back OT...

I think it's interesting that Tencent.-- which owns 5% of Blizaard -- seemingly owns 48% of Epic. If 5% and a gateway to China (companies must have partial Chinese ownership in order to enter Chinese market) is enough to bring this kind of censorship, what does 48% bring?

GWENT: Thronebreaker must be so boring, otherwise I would play it all night.
What did I say does nothing between countries and the misunderstanding.
So PLAY the game , before I can login GOG and buy games to support CD Projekt RED in China.
If GOG.com do some statement, i may say goodbye to genuine game.

It's not a perfect country, but it's my country. It's our homeland.

Though I can not watch youtube.com without VPN, I advise you to type "It's extremely dangerous to our democracy" into the bar and watch it.

the history of "China" or " the Communist Party of China " are both rebel history.
The Party knows that , we Chinese people knows that.

It is your country... and many of us are arguing for your increased participation and say in your country's government... and your freedom to gather information of all viewpoints (making up your own mind)... and in fact be critical of your government when warranted.

And when you bring up visiting China (which I think it's interesting that you default to the idea that some of us haven't been to China)... there's no issue with the Chinese people. People are people.

Boss is boss, it's global rules.
You miss the RIOT and Inter Milan (Football club).

Man,in peacetime,money means everything,because the order and rules.
In war time,bullets means everything, and every country drew national boundaries only in the wartime.
It's truth,otherwise you're too weak, as China hundreds years ago.

Of couse some of you haven't been to China.. almost 6 blillions are outside of China, and most of them stay in their country all through their lifes.
We have the Internet in 21st century,but still barely know nothing about others —— The Grate Fire Wall and ”Democracy media" or "the Party media" you might believe.
