  1. I've been playing WoW since vanilla. I am really invested in this game and it's very hard for me to see myself stopping to play it, but it's getting harder for me to justify continuing to play Blizzard games as Blizzard keeps doubling down in their stance that is effectively anti human rights. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling it for the past week. I keep hoping they might capitulate and compromise a bit, but they keep doubling down. 🙁

  2. Boycott activation's call of duty particularly on the mobile its the reason blizzards is trading human rights for money! Show American companies that this attitude will not be tolerated!

  3. Thank you for making an excellent video on the subject! I also treasured Blizzard as a game-maker and love most of their games which I own. I will not stop playing games which I have already paid for, but I will not spend any more money on new Blizzard games or subscription content. My personal boycott might not mean anything in the grand scheme of things but I will be calling for divestment and sanctions of this morally bankrupt company that would exchange all of our liberties for profit. It is with a sad and heavy heart that I will #boycottBlizzard at every opportunity.

  4. If you support blizzard in any way shape or form after seeing this, you are supporting censorship, communism and the enslavement of the human race.

  5. As many others have said, I agree that Blizzard had to take action, but the action they took was way to severe. I'm in the same position as you: I have played WoW since Vanilla and OW since season 3 and I love both games dearly, and had tons of respect for blizzard as a whole. This situation, for me, is their last chance to turn themselves around. I would like Blizzard to go the way of Bungie and break off from Activision because already there has been huge improvement in Destiny 2 as a whole. Of course that would mean they'd have to lose OWL — at least temporarily — but I think the company and their games would be just fine without big corporate assholes saying they have to ignore their player-base. And if they're able to make decisions based on more than "Our sponsors say do it" they would be able to rebuild with people who are passionate about their games all over again.

  6. After all those awesome guides of yours, you absolutely maxed this one out as well. A very nice, thorough and well-informed take on the issue.

  7. Wait, are you living in the middle east? Calling out dictatorial behavior? …Please upload a video every week to let us know you're still there.

  8. When did free speech and the right to vote stop being human rights and start being a political stance? Would Blizzard have banned Blitzchung for a year… heck at all if he stood up and said "Fight child slavery in Africa"? I'm sure that would have pissed off the African human traffickers. Why does the communist party in China get a pass?

  9. 2019 HEARTHSTONE® GRANDMASTERS OFFICIAL COMPETITION RULES v1.4 p.12, Section 6.1 (o)

    Engaging in any act that, in Blizzard’s sole discretion, brings you into public disrepute, offends a portion or group of the public, or otherwise damages Blizzard image will result in removal from Grandmasters and reduction of the player’s prize total to $0 USD, in addition to other remedies which may be provided for under the Handbook and Blizzard’s Website Terms.

  10. When people say "every voice matters by blizzard", the sentence is about the game, but politics.
    Blizzard may have their concern about the business, however, Blizzard banned xQc who is a Overwatch player talked something discriminated. I believe that Blizzard is trying to avoid any political reasons which are in their ways of business worldwide.

  11. I call BS on the "just following the rules" thing as well. The LGBTQ community has hijacked Overwatch previously to promote their ideology and no one said anything. So no, its not that Blizzard wants to avoid people using their media or streams to promote political/social agendas. Just agendas they don't agree with. Typical leftist behavior from the big e-companies.

  12. Honestly i have almsot stopped gaming completley. I am so sick of the over hyped over monitized bullshit. And now seeing them do this has just made me sick. I have now not olayed overwatch for 5 days. Whilst before that i had played it everyday since release. And you know what?! It felt good to stop gaming for 5 days. Fuck these companys #FreeTheWorld
