This week has been a roller coaster ride of emotions for fans of Blizzard and esports. For those that don’t know, Blizzard banned an esports player for saying “Liberate Hong Kong. Revolution of our age!” during his post game interview. There’s a lot going on in Hong Kong at this time, so as content creators for Blizzard Entertainment, we can’t sit back and be silent or act like this didn’t happen. It has to be addressed.
Here is a list of Sources used during this episode:
The YouTube video from Taliesin & Evitel is a great summary about everything going on and reflects a lot of the feelings that we are having as content creators for Blizzard Entertainment. Please take the time to check it out.
If you want to directly fund, and support what’s going on in Hong Kong, considering checking out Amnesty International and their work with supporting the Hong Kong Protestors. You can use this link for more information (No Affiliation with Frozen Nerdz).
The TL;DR of our Opinion is we 100% support human rights, the freedom of speech, and everything Blitzchung has done. And we feel like Blizzard Entertainment was in the wrong for this situation. But we talk about a lot more than just that revolving around this topic on the podcast episode.
The Overwatch Halloween Terror 2019 Event has been announced.
