How did they even manage to break Squelch?! I assume they test patches before releasing them?
I just want to read some usual stuff such as: "Pog champ, smorc, lol casters, easy lethal, etc..."
instead i only see this political hk spam. I mean liberties and all that... But annoys me.
I feel like MY rights as a twitch viewer of tournaments are thrashed, so why should it be tolerated?
Even if your rights were scammed by someone, it's a BAD IDEA to spoil other's people life who haven't done anything to you and might even be loyal to your problem, untill you start doing this annoying spammy stuff.
Your rights are thrashed because of the free speech of others? Whatever you say, Hitler.
These are dark days for liberty.
What I'm reading is the usual Leftist social justice nonsense about being inclusive, diversity, bringing people together, blah blah blah it makes me want to puke.
Bottom line is this:
However, the official broadcast needs to be about the tournament and to be a place where all are welcome
So, what are you saying here? That people who support Xi Jinpei are not feeling welcome because of this message? TOUGH SHIT. They aren't the ones dying in the street fighting against a totalitarian communist government that interns millions of people in concentration camps.
All this stupid Elizabeth Warren-esque message did was piss me off even more.
Yes and lets get them all 9 golden heroes and 100.000 gold to start off with. That seems fair.
Got to love the Bernie bros rolling in here demanding free stuff. How about you grind for it just like the rest of us had to?
For: J. Allen Brack, uknown President of Blizzard Entertainment
I am Blizz fan for more than 15 years. And now, I start doubting - we all start doubting.
You Blizzard, taught us a lot about high principles. You showed us difference between what is good and what is bad. You taught us that sometimes we just need do more - make one more step then everyone else. Do not be blind. Do not give up.
Now, We feel that we should remind you your own ideas.
Blizzard games never were only about games and tales. Why you are trying so much to tell us that we should close our eyes? We want to be heard and you should listen. We do not care about money. You do....and that is wrong.
I read your letter carefully...but I didn't find any valid reason. All of that are only empty words. You protected your money interesting in China, but you betray your own vision. You save china fans, but you lost us - many loyal fans everyone else
Pro democracy advocacy is not social justice. Just saying.
bleh, the whole text is just word games. wasted my time, fuck you Allen
Dude, if there was an anti gay rally in the USA where people would have been killed and a streamer showed himself with a gay pride flag on stream (which i would admire as much as Blitzchung's efforts), Blizzard wouldnt ban him from the tournament, allthough it is as social/political and away from the game as Blitzchung's actions were.
This is full of shit and everybody knows it.
A first and last warning would be enough as a punishment to the player. That's it. They had to make an example out of it to please China.
"The specific views expressed by blitzchung were NOT a factor in the decision we made. I want to be clear: our relationships in China had no influence on our decision."
Human rights is not "divisive." Oh never mind, it is. To the Chinese. Let's not forget Blizzard's apology to China.
All Hail Bran the Broken, Chief Autist in charge, rule on the iron wheelchair. Just imagining dealing with any sort of crisis would be hilarious "y'know I'M like...the three eyed raven and I don't care about any of this"
fucking hell, what a shitshow.
I'm not even upset anymore, just incredibly bored.
Arya was completely useless for basically 5/6 episodes, Jon is still a whiny bitchboy and now apparently a hippie. Grey worm just kind of goes on a vacation with the boys (what even are the DOthraki doing? Why would they follow him, why wouldn't they just go and pillage the countryside, it's not like anyone can stop them)
Remember when Bronn was sent to kill Tyrion, then did nothing for the entire season? Guess we needed a reason for him not to be in King'S Landing so he can be appointed to a position he's completely unqualified for.
Sansa basically just declared herself independent after her brother was named king...nepotism much? why even do that at all, your f***Ing brother is king, you're literally just creating an opposing center of power which will probably lead to more conflicts after you two have kicked the bucket
Arya just randomly decides to go full Columbus....I hope she dies of fucking scurvy.
oh yeah, why exactly was Tormund waiting at Castle Black? Did he just kind of hope Jon would come along at some point?
also props to them for cutting right after Jon killed Dany. Wouldn't want to actually show how veverything went down
"so...uh...this might sound weird...but I just killed our queen, then her dragon melted the iron throne and flew away with her corpse"
You'd think he would have been killed by a horde of angry svages and eunuchs at the spot, given how grey Worm literally commits war crimes on the daily at this point
Oh, also a big F*** YOU to all the people who went "but Dany just snapped and went insane, she doesn't make rational decisions". Well she seemed pretty in control of herself and blissfully ignorant of the genocide she just committed. I'd dare eeven say she was more erratic BEFORE she went supposedly "crazy"
