You think that Blizzard never ever cross their own rules on this,they just thought it would suit them to act against it this time and it should have been a real punishment and not an overblown "pretence" for political pandering to china and even then it would have been idiotic to punish for that.

And that shows in how it all backfired,common sense is not present with the higher ups at Blizzard it seems.

I believe anyone who brings up a sensitive topic at a show or event without giving consent to the Show/event holders should be banned, that's my belief across the board not just for politics. 

Hey i respect your opinion but for me that is too absolute,that way you group together the people with bad and good intentions and giving them the same punishment and besides of that this was a pure political move from blizzard, and me and you are thankfully still free to criticize those out of order political moves for financial gains coming from company's founded and situated in the free western countries suddenly pandering to countries where human rights are not evolved as higly as ours are and you have to worry about how much of that can seep over and constrain our freedoms in the long run if you just let this happen at this present date.

You are aware they didn't punish a US team at all despite doing the exact same thing right? So even with your ignorant oversimplified belief, you should be against Blizzard as they clearly don't agree with you. Also, just lol at freedom being a sensitive topic.

You (and Blizzard for that matter) want people to ignore what was actually said and just focus on the label, to dismiss information because it's inconvenient for you. Well we wont, we're smarter than that.

Just wondering but how many of the "boycott Blizzard" people are boycotting anything and everything associated with China?

Yes it's unrealistic to boycott everything China and very few people actually are.

It is going to be easy for me because I don't really buy many Blizzard games. I was kind of looking forward to the new Warcraft III and maybe Diablo III once I got a Switch, but I think I will just pass on those. I have so many other games to play that there is no reason for me to support a company that pulls bullshit like this.

curious about your stance on Scotland's and Northern Ireland independence from the UK lol

I'm sure you'll be really consistent there

I support their right to independence, now is that so hard ? I wouldn't have it any other way for Catalonia or Padania ...

By comparison, neoliberal progressives do not deserve to see a world where Hong Kong is independent since most of them are hypocritical about these issues to promote their own pathetic brand of unity. If they are only interested in waging an ideological war then they should be prepared to risk paying the ultimate price ... 

There is no solidarity in forcing regime change to foreign entities so neoliberal progressives come off as nothing more than being selfish ...

Again pick one, it's either unity or independence ...

Of course, it's because you have cognitive dissonance ...

Or you're just talking nonsense.

There's nothing contradictory about supporting Hong Kong and being against Brexit, the comparison between EU and CCP is one of the most ridiculous comments I've seen on VGC but you have a habit of shitting up threads by making ridiculous comparisons or exaggerations and I'm growing tired of it.

Consider that a warning.
