Blizzard has ended in the eye of the storm after you banned from tournaments, pro player Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai, who was accused of having spent positive words in relation to the protests in Hong Kong. The community has rebelled against this choice, and has launched the hashtag #BlizzardBoycott, which is also supported by other players, caster and creator.
Blitzchung has been suspended from competitions, and all his prize money won during the Season 2 of Hearthstone have been revoked. The reason for this? You have damaged the image of Blizzard with his words in support of the protest. The community has spoken from the part of Chung and the company has had to even close its page on Reddit, deluged by insults and threats of all kinds.
Now comes a new development, since the caster Brian Kibler announced that the protest will not take part in the Hearthstone Grandmasters in the program this weekend: “I never wanted to take a position on matters of this kind but I always thought that being a public figure you to bring in a dowry, also have to give the good example to make the world a better place.”
The presenter claims to have contacted his manager at Blizzard, and has communicated to them that will not lead to the final of the Grandmasters of Hearthstone: “I can confirm that, unless sudden changes, will not have any role in the Hearthstone Grandmaster of the next weekend.”
