Honestly... you might not be able to play. Blizzard already banned Iran, Syria and a few other countries and I've seen players from there complain along time. Now, if a full blockade is made on Russia, you won't be able to play, as you won't be able to pay, for Blizzard won't accept your money, for it would be against the USA trade block laws.
They'd easily find a way around it, these billionaires aren't stupid

They'd "find" a loophole and Russians would carry on playing.
I'll stick to calling it "GEMA" lol
Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.
Russia has a population of 143 million and is becoming more and more westernised with lots of money in their economy, Iran is a muslim country that has nowhere near as much money and isn't very westernised (as much as America tried to make it so). Cuba is a poor communist country.
It's risk vs reward and the income from Russia is huge compared to countries like Cuba.
It also isn't so easy to just pack up a company and move abroad.
Then there is the "minor" problem of public perception. If a company moves simply to avoid a well deserved trade embargo they will not get my business....or anyone else's I would assume.
Luckily most people don't care about companys evading embargos, when they buy something they want to enjoy. Oh and who's buying all those soyuz tickets to be able to fly to the ISS again? Ticket prices should be raised hundredfold for certain customers.
