Le drama est né lundi dernier après que Blizzard ait banni Chung " Blitzchung " Ng Wai, l'un des meilleurs joueurs mondiaux sur Hearthstone. De plus, Ng Wai Chung, alias blitzshung, s'est également permis de citer des slogans utilisés par les opposants au régime de Pékin, mettant au passage les commentateurs qui l'interviewaient dans l'embarras au point qu'ils ont préférés se cacher sous leur bureau, afin de ne pas être associés à de telles déclarations.

Et évidemment, les conséquences n'ont pas tardé à se faire connaître puisque Blizzard, et plus particulièrement Blizzard Taiwan qui avait la gestion de l'événement, a choisi de frapper fort. Le joueur a reçu une lourde sanction: il a été disqualifié du Hearthstone Grandmasters et il ne touchera pas son cash-prize.

Tout acte qui, à la discrétion de Blizzard, jette le discrédit, offense une partie ou un groupe du public, ou porte autrement atteinte à l'image de Blizzard, entraînera le retrait des Grandmasters et la réduction du prix d'un joueur à 0$, en plus d'autres recours pouvant être prévus dans le manuel et conditions d'utilisation de Blizzard. Laissant une large place à l'interprétation, cet extrait du règlement a donc servi à Blizzard pour se détacher totalement du joueur, et ainsi tenter de laver son image auprès du gouvernement chinois.

Si Blizzard a sanctionné Blitzchung, c'est notamment car le studio compte beaucoup sur la Chine pour faire grimper ses revenus.

Whistleblower may have worked with Joe Biden in White House

Les réactions en ligne à la décision de Blizzard ont été majoritairement négatives.

Blizzard n'a pas encore réagi à ces nombreuses manifestations de défiance de la part des joueurs.

Epic soutient le droit de chacun d'exprimer ses opinions sur la politique et les droits de l'Homme. Les fans, les joueurs, des membres importants de l'industrie, et même des avocats ont critiqué la décision de Blizzard. En effet, la statue située devant l'entrée des studios a été altérée par des développeurs qui ont masqué les mentions "Think Globally" et "Every Voice Matters" avec des feuilles de papier. Activision a pris cette décision pour ne pas offenser la Chine. Reste à voir ce qu'il adviendra après la période "d'évaluation ".
