  1. Blizzard made their bed and now they must lie in it.

    Enjoy your commie friends Blizzard hope it was worth many thousands of cancelled accounts.

    #Boycott Blizzard

    #Free Hong Kong

  2. Blizzard, this is not a gang bang porn where you can suck multiple dicks. You chosen a dick and you have chosen poorly. Boycott Blizzard.

  3. Jesus Christ, someone tell me that this is Blizzard Chinese brand because all this shit is just insane

  4. Was so psyched for WoW Classic but i guess a boycott doesnt mean much unless it hurts. Goodbye forever, Blizzard.

  5. It’s pretty funny how they don’t mention that so many Westerners have unsubscribed and cancelled their accounts that Blizzard has disabled that account option.

  6. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1166339.shtml) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)
    > "While we stand by one's right to express individual thoughts and opinions, players and other participants that elect to participate in our esports competitions must abide by the official competition rules," read the statement issued by Blizzard.

    > Blizzard's penalties on the anti-Hong Kong government player have been highly praised on Chinese social media platforms, with some saying that the US firm made the "Right decision" that did not let Chinese esports players down.

    > "This is a world of difference: the NBA only showed Western arrogance and double standards in how they treated the Chinese, while Blizzard respected the sentiments of Chinese people and China's territorial integrity," Liu Dingding, a Beijing-based industry analyst, told the Global Times.

  7. Oh yea some more Chinese blood money who doesn’t like it, Blizzard can make better games for us hey how about Diablo 4 ?just don’t forget to add Tibet ,Uyghur and Hong Kong people as the new enemies.

  8. Universal value vs Money. Pick your side

    Blizzard: say no more.

  9. Blizzard has been about that money over people for a decade+ now. I thinks its been obvious

  10. Oh have the mighty have fallen. Blizzard is such a disappointment

  11. Would those “users” be the people in jail who’re forced to mine the games for tokens, etc? I’m sure they’re completely free to express their unbiased opinion…

  12. They should move their headquarters to China. Fits the culture perfectly.

  13. Fuck this shit! I love old blizzard but wtf man. Maybe I can keep playing Starcraft 1. Does that bring them revenue? I don’t want them to get any until they fix this shit.

    The whole world stands united against the tyranny of China. Fuck Xitler Jin Pooh.

  14. Like this post to get +1 social credit score!

  15. Can someone make a post that covers everything so we can bring it up to the front of reddit? I am a horrible writer myself…

  16. They’ll loose little-to-nothing from this, Americans will continue buying Blizzard products.

    Blizzard will announce a new game, unless it’s controlled by a meter-long stick you insert into your arse, everyone will but it.

  17. Politics =/= Entertainment
