    Professional gamers should act as they are named...professional...what blitzchung did was unprofessional. Everyone is saying China is to blame and it’s bullshit. Blizzard isn’t worried about money they are worried about people saying whatever the fuck they want on THEIR stage just because they won a tournament

      Blitzchung broke the rules and deserved ALL of the punishment he got. You can’t bring up any political views. If blizzard didn’t punish him they would be allowing things such as democratic and republican views. This isn’t about Chinese relations it’s about not letting people use BLIZZARDS STAGE to get their personal messages across

              The issue is capitalism, where it's normal to value money over all else. Believe it or not, there are things more important than money.

                  This has nothing to do with politics. This is about human decency. I am Left-Wing, and everyone who makes excuses for a Regime like China is a SCUMBAG!

                            i think that is an inaccurate statement. from what i hear blizzard gets about a 13% revenue from china. that is a big chunk but pretty damn small.

                            also have to take into acocunt mobile games are popular in china, meaning that most of those gamesr are mobile gamers to begin with. otherwise with 500 million people they would be making much more.

                            in the end if they work to apepase china they are going to lose the rest of the world and thus be left with that 13%. especially as china makes it much harder.

                                    The best thing anyone can do is raise hell at blizzcon. Do it on official streams if you can. Get kicked out? video it.
                                    If the execs touch the issue at all and do anything but what's right for blitzchung and the casters, throw anything you have at them, preferably something messy like food.

                                    It would be an optical shitshow of grand proportions if BlizzCon got crashed over this, and it needs to happen.

                                                  If blizzard lost their market in China,they will lose more then 20% of their incomes(maybe more), that means a lot to a company.

Because for them, having any relationship with Human rights and political freedom is very dangerous. And when it affects what happens in the rest of the world, you really feel how dangerous when China trying to take over the world.

If you are OK with giving money to a multinational corporation with more loyalty to China than your own OR to freedom of speech, keep buying from Activision. If you have any pride, honor, self-respect, or decency. Boycott Bobby Kotick and his Chinese masters.

Obviously The company has economic interest but also I think that they need to punish the player to make a healthy sports (or in this case, e-sports) platform.

                                                                                            1.- The punishment was to harsh
                                                                                            2.- They didn't communicate properly why they were doing this
                                                                                            3.- They censored the whole thin up with the no comments shit

                                                                                            • Fatal Kookie

China doesn't think Taiwan exist, so if the tournament happened in Taiwan, China would've been like "oh that's our territory, he can't do that"
