not a tweet but rather a post game interview, where the desk hosts already ducked under the table. Depite that both of them also got fired

He said "ching chong" to make Chinese people mad, they got mad, and he got banned from the Chongqing Major because Chongqing officials were threatening to cancel the major lol Although I don't think it was political, it was less severe compared to this
2019-10-09 23:34
yes because banning someone for supporting protests against a murderous autocracy and banning someone for racial slurs is exactly the same thing.

2019-10-09 00:37
But there’s a difference between casualties of war and ethnic cleansing. Obv all the deaths in both wars were tragic, but those that result from rampant anti-semitism I find to be more tragic and preventable. Again, I’m not demeaning or saying in any way that those who died in either ww aren’t deserving of all our sympathies and sadness, but I would argue that they died for a purpose and what they believed in.

Probably not, but it does have a heavy implication (imo) on esports leagues. If the company can just ban you, and get your money for legit no reason is a big red flag for anyone making a deal with that. The league of legends league got the echo fox slot and sold it (while keeping the money of the sale for them, or parts of it) just because one of the share holders did a racist comment.
2019-10-08 21:20
what choice do the players have? it's their tournament and they have to play by their rules.
2019-10-08 22:09
The problem is that the rules, at least for OWL like #18 mentions are shady. They can pull anything and say you are banned and you can't do anything. Sure, you have to play for their rules, but you expect them to not exploit those rules and be fair with them. That is where for me is the problem, if i'm a investor/team, and i'm paying 10m+ for a slot on one of those leagues and they do something like this, i would be legit scared about my slot. With this case, blizzard is getting hammered hard for their decision.
2019-10-08 22:17
i have no doubt that every single person that plays in one of their tournaments (or even CS ones for ESL, ECS, Starladder, ELEAGUE, etc.) all sign some sort of agreement with the tournament organizer, and i'd be willing to bet my left nut that there are clauses in there about this type of stuff and the penalties that would result for breaking the rules. blizzard wont feel an ounce of community backlash that comes from this. whether you agree with the player or not, people LOVE blizzard's games and will absolutely continue playing them without a hitch it's one thing for a single player to come forward and express his opinion, but it's completely different when team org does it (which will most likely NEVER happen because of sponsors and investors). look at the cheating and match-fixing problems we had in CSGO. each penalty was directly on the player(s) involved, not the org. do you really think that iBUYPOWER had any idea that their players were fixing games? hell no lol
2019-10-08 22:22
"O. each penalty was directly on the player(s) involved, not the org. do you really think that iBUYPOWER had any idea that their players were fixing games? hell no lol" they did? was not only the players that got banned on IBP, there was some people from the management too Look, my point is more that there is a problem with the rule set when you can get banned for making a tweet, that is not related to anything from blizzard or other company. Sure, i do believe that esl has a rule set for stuff like this, but i doubt they would ban someone for calling another one a "faggot" on a twitch stream (the s1mple case recently). The line is shady for blizzard/LCS and even twitch. In this very case you can see that rule is shady and open for interpretation. And i do believe blizzard could get backlash in the future for multiple reasons and not only from the fans, but orgs and sponsors, not only this case (even though this case is already getting some) Have a nice day.
2019-10-08 22:32
misunderstanding, in that example i was referring to the people who were directly involved with the scandal. i understand your point, but there's absolutely nothing that the players can do about it. they sign agreements, they choose to play these tournaments, and they have to play by the organizers' rules today, with all the constant snowflake media bs, i would not at all be surprised if an org like ESL banned a player for saying anything racist, homophobic, or prejudicial in a public forum setting like Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, etc. They're businesses geared to make money, they have investors and sponsors, they have responsibilities for governing their outlook, and quite frankly they probably couldn't care less if one or more players got banned for a particular reason. There's literally a line down the street filled with would-be players that are dying for a chance to be on the big stage.
2019-10-08 22:38
if the agreement is not compatible with the law, it is null and void, and he may keep his money. its not just about the player getting a ban, its about the part where they took back all his prize money. for having an opinion about politics. people have rights. even in hong kong.
2019-10-10 12:32
with who's law? the US's? China's?
2019-10-10 16:39
that is the question indeed
2019-10-10 16:48
exactly. each player signs an agreement with the tournament org, and i have no doubt there are plenty of clauses in there that outline various things that the players cannot do, along with the repercussions for breaking their rules. so what does the player do if they break those rules? i suppose they could try suing Blizzard, but over what? they signed the agreement lol
2019-10-10 17:02
read the tweet maybe?! how is it illegal?
2019-10-09 15:03
you cant simply take back money you paid out to someone for doing a job in the past because he wrote a tweet about politics. people have rights.
2019-10-10 12:31
it was in his contract and he signed it. Thats why they can, as simple as that

You’re whole argument consists of “you’re stupid” blizzard is a private company, they can do anything they want to someone who uses their service, I’m not saying I agree with it, but they have complete control over the players in this case.
2019-10-09 21:29
they are hypocrites and even private company can stay for values. Some use it as marketing and some do it cuz they believe it. Blizzard uses it as marketing in esports "fair play etc and bans cheaters" but if someone demands fair play in real life Blizzard denies it. Google is also a private company and still, they deny to cooperate with China Government. Private Company or not, it reveals you are a weak company if you give up values for money.

In my opinion, esports must be separated from political thinks,however, like any other sport. But I got the idea that Blizzard just caved in under the money of China and they just do not want to lose them. Business, as always. As a result, we have a conflict between a not very intelligent player and a company that has become too greedy. Neither side in its own way is not right.
2019-10-08 11:49
it's pretty obvious to me that the player cares more about the Hong Kong protests than the tournament status or money he took it on himself to express his feelings, more than once now, and people are taking notice. dunno if anything will come from it, but this player had the opportunity to reach a lot of people and he did it on his own accord.
2019-10-08 22:11
Fill me on on the HK/china protest, never been bothered or even tried to look into it. Appreciate it if you inform me men))
2019-10-09 15:33
people in HK have been protesting for about 3 months now. it seems like the main reason why it started is because of a new extradition law that would allow for criminals in HK to be extradited to China. as i'm sure you know, HK was a British colony and they have a different set of laws and rights compared to the Chinese
2019-10-09 16:24
sorry, i think it's actually 4 months now... it's been going on for quite a while
2019-10-09 16:35
ok, thanks :D
2019-10-09 16:37
i've also seen other things about wages, equal rights, and other typical protest subjects, but i'm not too sure if those are really included or not
2019-10-09 16:40
Esports should be separated from politics, but banning player for 1 year and rescinding all his prize money is just too much. This is also important protest for freedom of speech.

On top of that, all the most respected top-people in Blizzard has quit... all three founders of the company and their most skilled dev and writer Chris Metzen. The last respectable lead employee in the company who still works there is Jeff Kaplan, and he is only working on Overwatch.

You could be right, I don't know about David Brevik's work. Don't think he worked on WoW
2019-10-08 22:15
...........................seriously? David Brevik came up with Diablo and was pretty much point man on D1 and D2
2019-10-08 22:16
lol i didn't mean to come off mean, so i apologize if i did but yea, i was of young video game age when Diablo first came out back in 1996/1997. no exaggeration... people were absolutely blown away at what they produced... Battle.net, fully immersive multiplayer, great mechanics, unique story, etc. etc. etc. D2's release was even bigger and the reception was incredible. D1 and D2 together are phenomenal games and tbh David Brevik is mostly to thank for that. unfortunately he didn't work on D3 and it's no secret that's one of the main reasons why it didn't pick up nearly as much...... imo D3 just doesn't have nearly the same feel or game play or any of that. very disappointing

Yeah I've heard a bit about that, I never personally played any of the Diablo games though so I honestly couldn't have an opinion on that. It sounds similar to the progression of the WoW expansions quite a bit
2019-10-08 22:37
this is debatable, but there's a very very strong chance that Blizzard wouldn't nearly be the company it is today (and maybe not have the capacity or financial backing to develop games like WoW or OW) if it wasn't for the early successes of games like Diablo, Diablo 2, and Star Craft. Warcraft 1 and 2 were big games, no doubt, but Diablo was really the game that put Blizzard on the map

NA companies getting censored by chinese government
2019-10-08 22:54
so.... a company that started in the US, which has international recognition, decides to take actions against a player and it's the US's fault? wut?
2019-10-08 22:55
a company in the US has to censor its players because of chinas government,,, isnt this worrying...?
2019-10-08 23:15
> player signed an agreement with the tournament org. > player broke rules > Blizzard took action to support China's speech and political rules once again I fail to see why this is a problem for the US (or even Europe) China's rules are much different than those of the western world. ffs i'm pretty sure their version of CS doesn't even have blood in it lol
2019-10-08 23:20
they just do whats best for the company... has nothing to do with the US
2019-10-09 15:19
"best for the company" I think Just doing nothing would have been better than siding with China and having the backlash they now have .

no China is just too big and there is not a neutral standpoint here. Either they want to appeal to china or they dont. Western people will continue to play blizzard games either way.

Yeah. Lets all forget the millions the Chinese goverment killed cus they didnt have the ''right'' political view.
2019-10-09 14:24
LMAO, you have no idea what happened in China during KMT period don't you, guess how many Communists and Left-wing politicians were killed by KMT? Just in 1927, KMT killed over a million left-wing politician, communist supporters, communists. After the liberation of China, most of the landlord and KMT officials we killed, they had too much blood on their hand. At that time, if you have anyone in your family join CCP, your entire family will be hanged by either KMT or the landlords. If the village was occupied by the CCP for once and they had supported CCP, KMT will massacre the entire village after they returned. It's not us who just killed them because they have different views, but they had done way too much evil that our people can no longer tolerate their existence. In addition, many we killed were the traitors during the WW2 who helped Japanese in invading China. On top of all these, get me a source say we killed millions people.
2019-10-09 17:38
And regarding Tibet and Xinjiang, they were still in the slavery system at that time. We were simply asking them to stop, release the slaves, build schools for children, women, and slaves to go to school and get educated, then guess what, the ruling class in these areas start to attack the people's government, massacring Han Chinese. Is there any wrong in liberating others who were suffering like slaves and women?
2019-10-09 17:44
Communism is never a evil system that just kill people for fun. We are asking for equality, freedom, fight against those who oppress others, and that's it. We can tolerate other political views, but we do not tolerate those who wish to oppress and harm other people.
2019-10-09 17:47
''we do not tolerate those who wish to oppress and harm other people.'' Expect for the government ofc. They can oppress us all they want. Put one million in labor camps, just cus they are muslims. Go die in your shit oppressed country. All your comments just shows your brainwashed communist propaganda. Nt tho.

Hm i can understand both parties. I understand that Blizzard doesnt want to be a political Platform in any way, but then i ask myself why they didnt disclose that with the Casters and the Players beforehand. Banning all 3 of them is really odd and shouldnt have happened when they didnt disclose that in any form. For me it is a really odd overreaction on Blizzards side of things.
2019-10-08 17:44
Ofc this was disclosed, and they're not stupid, you can see it in their faces, trying to laugh it off doesn't mean you knew fully what you were doing. This isn't kindergarden anymore, rightfuly fired.
2019-10-08 20:59
They didn’t tell him to say anything though? All they were doing was doing a post-game interview? The only person responsible in this case was the player
2019-10-09 21:36
They did, casters should've broken off the interview but instead went on to say "ok go ahead just say it already" and then ducked, they should've known better too.
2019-10-10 14:56
all of the players sign agreements with the tournament orgs. i'd bet my dick that there are specific clauses within that agreement which talks about scenarios like this and the repercussions for breaking rules

So just because houston rockets' coach gave his opinion on the current situation in your country, china had to literally ban all nba preseason games broadcasts? And now they are taking off nba logos off basketball courts in China too, that's pathetic. Open your eyes.

Ok. But do u understand why china reacted in such a huge way? They banned the Rockets after the normal citizens made a huge deal out of it.

2019-10-09 23:41
what do u think happened? Blizzard's CEO called up Trump to ask him what to do? "hey Big Don, China didn't like something that one of our players did, what should we do?" China's rules on speech and politics are completely different than those of the western world. ffs their video game laws are so much more strict than ours (pretty sure China's CS Perfect World doesn't even have blood in the game.... lol) Not to mention, this Hong Kong protest has been burning up money and manpower for like 3 months now, so it's safe to say that it's a hot topic over there. Blizzard, a publicly traded company, made these decisions. Should they support this kid's views, even though he signed an agreement with the tournament org? or should they just get rid of him because there's literally a line down the street filled with players dying to have a chance to play in one of these tournaments? pretty easy ass decision
2019-10-08 23:17
Yeah money or integrity? Pretty easy ass decision, we live in a capitalistic society, so integrity isn't an option
2019-10-08 23:19
once again... Blizzard is an international, publicly traded company with investors. their tournaments have a bunch of sponsors, each of which have investors as well. they have a very specific job to support everyone involved with what they touch integrity? the kid broke the rules... what do you expect to happen? you think Blizzard would just pull support from an entire country because of how they reacted to a kid's political outbreak? my hat is off to him and i think it's great that he used his opportunity to reach out to a bunch of people, but the potential for negative press and/or sponsorship retraction is faaaaar too great
2019-10-08 23:24
whats the point of those rethorical questions? I never said anything about what I expected them to do I was expecting exactly this
2019-10-08 23:34
the point of the rhetorical* questions is that you obviously have no idea what you're talking about (starting with your initial comment), so i broke it down Barney style so you could understand lol
2019-10-08 23:38
It seems more like you're arguing with yourself You're just stating the obvious "people getting banned or losing their job for expressing their political opinion isn't good" "WELL YES WHAT WERE YOU EXPECTING THEM TO DO???????? IT'S THEIR RIGHT????? THEY'RE A PRIVATE COMPANY?????????? YOU WOULD DO THE SAME??????????????? THINK OF THE INVESTORS??????????"
2019-10-09 00:16
i'm stating the obvious because there are morons like you that don't understand the basics of business (or quite a few other things tbh) lol dunno where that quote came from, but it wasn't from me. welp, it looks like i made you mad lol. not sorry at all, and now you're just continuing to sound like an uneducated pillock hahaha

Unless it's already in their contracts/rules that they can't express political views through their IP and media, and the potential bans already being defined beforehand... but yeah, you're right. There's an example of this in most European leagues of football. They can face a ban of several matches if they take off their jersey and show a t-shirt that displays a political message.. to prevent this even further, it has been included in the rulebook of UEFA that it isn't allowed to take off the jersey on the field during play.

its quite obvious. capitalists must choose, to make money in china mainland, or to stick with our west values. and dont doubt why they choose the first one. western citizens are bunch of cucks who only live in their own interests. just ask any capitalist, "who do you support, communist china or world of liberty?" and all whites boycott any company who choose the first one, just like what beijing does to who choose the second one. and then we will be saved.
2019-10-08 23:45
not entirely true. capitalists will just control the media, making western people think they support your western values, in fact, they don't give a shit about any values but only profit.
2019-10-09 00:02
ofc they run for money. thats why we must act. they must choose, we cant let them stay ambiguous and make money either way. they are american, or they are not.
2019-10-09 00:08
Capitalist ain't got a nationality. check out on how many American billionaires migrate to other countries, just Singapore alone I know more than 3 US billionaires (. And many more on planning to escape. as long as their nationality is stopping them from making a profit, they will just change one. Too naive to think it will work out.
2019-10-09 00:14
i know they are not. thats why we must force them to choose. they either make money in the world of liberty, or they make money in china. we cant allow them to choose both.
2019-10-09 00:23
gl trying then. China we had like half of the rich people ran away already, and another half planning to escape. If you try to do it, the same will happen to US.

yes, and you should do so. i heard that you have unofficially announced that anyone who support NBA are traitors. in fact im quite happy to see trump tweeting sth about hk. and after that china would announces to stop tariff bargain, and put anyone who has assets in america as traitors. oh it sound amazing!

Why people get mad at a company bending over to others for profits? Thomas Dunning once said 'Capital eschews no profit, or very small profit, just as Nature was formerly said to abhor a vacuum. With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 per cent. will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 per cent. certain will produce eagerness; 50 per cent., positive audacity; 100 per cent. will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 per cent., and there is not a crime at which it will scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged. If turbulence and strife will bring a profit, it will freely encourage both. Smuggling and the slave-trade have amply proved all that is here stated' This explains everything.

because they're censoring the people of hong kong who are fighting for their rights and siding with china, its despicable
2019-10-09 00:03
Hong Kong people have no freedom, no future, no right not because of CCP. Believe me or not, CCP had hardly intervened anything in HK since it was handed over, it's entire system was still running based on how the British set it. The real ruling class in Hong Kong are those billionaires, HK with merely 7million population has 6 top100 world billionaires, and coincidently they are all real-estate developer. Imagine you graduate from a University, making 300k HKD a year where the cheapest flat on market is gonna cost 6 million HKD thats less than 60 square meter. Then, most of the HK people (I have alot of HK friends as well, but I still don't support them) blame it to HK government, thinking that the government is corrupted, not doing thing and they are eager to seek for a new government that can bring them changes. In fact the HK government had tried many ways in solving the housing crisis, but none of these succeed, nor a new government, any form of government under capitalism can help them solve their problem.

Well, Saudi Arabia is 100 times worse than China, but they have a perfect relationship with US and Western countries.
2019-10-09 00:31
"perfect Relations" ? No, Same Relations... All that the western countries want is the money. You shouldnt side with Saudi Arabia aswell, Same goes for Qatar who is allowing slavery. But people forget their freedom If they can have Money.

deserved, why the fuck would you bring politics into a card game about a video game? what an idiot... i 100% support blizzard in their decision.
2019-10-09 11:40
you are right they should not bring IRL stuff into gamining but Blizzard really overreacted taking his prize money
2019-10-09 11:48
They are correct. I'm happy blizzard punished him. Keep any politics as far as possible from blizz games.
2019-10-09 15:05
I mean he agreed to his contract and broke it. Whats wrong with that?! On the other hand lol casters arent even allowed to say Hong Kong on stream at the current worlds, even though a team is called Honk Kong Attitude. They have to call them HKA. Thats literally worse

He was interviewed and made comments to the corruptions and chaos in Hong Kong and the chinese destruction of it. And since blizz is mainly owned by a chinese company that is not good. They even fired those that interviewed him... the chinese way. speak ill of the great nation and you, and all those around you will go away.. So the player banned. the hosts fired for interviewing him. and the money that is his taken.. American freedom for ya.. All blizz is good at these days is making bad games. and phone schemes because you all got phones right.. and selling their work and fans away for a bit of money.
