    Default How many stopped using Blizzard after the Hong Kong fiasco?

    I haven't stopped per say, but haven't really used since, what a shame, I hope hong kong earns their place outside of China's grasp.

    It's not my problem. So, I'll keep on using blizzard stuff I guess :]

    China's never done anything to hurt me. And a lot of cool stuff is made there. You own something from China right now. I think Amazon is also a chinese business partner. You wouldn't stop buying stuff from Amazon, would you?

    I haven't stopped. I understand why Blizz wants to uphold rules that minimize political statements because they don't want to offend both consumers and the Chinese government. Blizz is a business, after all, their goal is to obviously produce enjoyable games, but ultimately, they make money.

    However, I didn't agree with the strict consequences. A ban for an entire year and stripped of winnings went way too far for a guy who just wants his country to have basic civil rights. I'm glad they listened to people and reduced his sentence, perhaps it's still too harsh.

    I believe in second chances, sometimes more depending on the scenario. I don't think Blizz as a whole deserves to be cancelled.

    Eh, they do have a lot of games, from Diablo to WoW to WoW Classic, Heartstone and many others. I get the hype with everything HK, but it will pass, meanwhile I'm waiting for Diablo 4 right now
