What do people think about the recent Blizzard thing?

Post by The Mogician »

I don't really like getting into politics outside a political place, but I saw on the news that Blizzard banned some player who said pro-HK stuff during a Hearthstone tournament. What do you guys think about this? Do gaming and politics mix?

Also, please be civil.

No. Games should be free of all political crap and brainwashing.

Sadly, this newer generation of games are getting shit full of SJW crap, political bullshit and different messages that the game developers or publishers want to push to society. No wonder, games have become shittier and shittier and the indie games are becoming fun which usually lack the drama.

I actually play Hearthstone and it was discussed heatedly by the media just before Blizzcon. After the "apology" by the CEO, it seems the banning has become old news. Blizzard also reduced the punishment on the player and the casters, but many gamers believe that Blizzard has an interest in keeping the Chinese government happy.

IMO, Gaming and politics do not mix.

The only thing that i don't mind with politics in general is if it pertains in the storyline of the game, but politics in real life affecting video games should not be a thing, however the sad part is that people keep trying to do so over and over sadly. A good example is looking at a game called Death Stranding and how well things can partake in the setting that it is in. The game has political views of how to change the world since it is in ruins.

Not alot of games going to last long when it has any values with SJW in the long run, no matter how much they implement that successfully, the game itself don't live that long to be rememberable in general. SJW are a small niche of a community that really honestly not alot of people pay too much attention to because they know most of it is just bullshit that they spew, so they don't give them any attention that they seek. Luckily SJW activities are dying down, barely you hear much about it but word of mouth, and websites like kotaku and polygon that keeps posting sjw related things are already dying out.

I dislike what blizzard has done, but sadly we can't really do much, dispite protest, there is very little we can do unless we ask to government to do something about it, and you know how people are so weary of doing that because the government will mess up things that go against what we actually wanted.
