  1. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    That's interesting, thanks for bringing that to my attention Blade. I know China also has some holdings in New Zealand and are dramatically investing in many African countries.

    I look at politics...

    I'm familiar with several of those, but Australia? What's going on there?
  3. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    People are apparently being banned for mentioning Hong Kong in a twitch stream during a Hearthstone Masters Tour.

    I never hated Blizzard. Hell, I was fine with the crappy story we got out of SC2,...
  4. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Congress sent a bipartisan letter to Blizzard condemning them for their actions and urging the ban on Blitzchung be reversed.

    The letter in full can be found here, signed by Rob Wyden, Marco...
  5. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    The members of the American University team that held up a "Free Hong Kong" sign during a match have all just been handed 6 month bans.
  6. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Oooh, you're just adorable.

    ESL and Riot are capitulating to China's demands with regard to HK, apparently.

    EDIT Apparently an Overwatch for Switch launch event was also canceled. Whadya know.

    Re: Old school models from Blizzcon

    I examined the carrier model in the Editor, and it is so incredibly faithful to Makato's rendition.
  8. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Blizzard finally issued a statement on the matter. In my opinion, it's full of bullshit.



    In the words of Alarak:

    "You lie with such conviction. It's almost admirable."
  9. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize"

    In the midst of Blizzard's ongoing silence, there are small tidbits here and there.

  10. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Several Blizzard employees walked out and demonstrated at the Irvine campus yesterday. A friend also said they plan on demonstrating today, too.
  11. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Apparently, another Blizzard-sanctioned event elicited Hong Kong statements. The player's camera feed was almost immediately cut before the coverage ended prematurely.

    Moreover, various...
  12. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    I love that Mei is becoming a symbol for opposition. Unfortunately, I read her voice actor is pro-CCP.

    So I've spoken with a friend of mine who works for Blizzard. They are of the mind Blizzard...
  13. Re: Blizzard Suspends Hearthstone Player For Hong Kong Support, Pulls Prize Money

    Oh, is that what made their LAN decision for them? I never realized. I never realized so many of those things were due to the Chinese market. Jeez.

    EDIT

    There's some discontent within Blizzard....

    Yong Yea responded to the controversy:

    EDIT Oh dear, NPR is getting in on the action too.

    I can and will do both, thank you very much. Good to know you're giving them a pass, though.

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    I wonder about that. It's stated that Terrazine is a gas that comes from the Void, so I'd think its composition would be homogenous regardless of its origins. Of course, it could have some...

    Potentially. Also keep in mind the Chain of Ascension, which would retroactively explain Nyon's force's continued loyalty to him. These Tal'Darim may have even been "exiled" from the main body,...

    Dude, we were given the "reason": Alarak stated that Nyon had gone insane from harvesting terrazine. The writers didn't consider from the outset the overarching story where the Tal'Darim were...

    I mean, Misla's probably right in this instance. The Tal'Darim of WoL act against the wishes of Narud in WoL, then are suddenly his servants in HotS, and are completely transformed in LotV into...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Alarak explained it (read: retconned) that Executor Nyon and his forces were sent to harvest terrazine, and were driven insane by it. So apparently they cut ties with the main Tal'darim body and went...

    From what I've been able to gather, the protoss have an empathic, communal link that exists at an instinctual level; it's probably an autonomic process. Amon wanted to use this as his means of...

    Zeratul's death isn't entirely unique. The one other disintegration-in-death I know of was Ma'lash's death at the hands out Alarak. Perhaps having their bodies infused with so much corrupted void...
