    Riot pleads to players. "Don't do Blitzchung"

    If you are Activision fan boy. Please don't talk to me.

    God forbid video game companies ask for an environment free from politics so we can all enjoy the thing or event we came to enjoy.

    Yeah, the enthusiasm for this "asking" worked so well for them in the past few days.

    hopefully they slam the first fool to do it hard so that the trend dies quickly. play politics on your own time.

    I haven't really noticed anything odd so far with the worlds 2019 show, minus the occasional sperg spamming "FREE HK" in twitch chat.

    It's 2019 give me a break from that hot garbage. If you want to ''speak up'' against anything at all in this world, never before has a single voice had such volume or power as it does today on social media and the internet. There is zero need to hijack somebody else's tournament or gaming event to further push your personal agenda, regardless of what it may be. Do that shit on your own platform.

    And if you really gave a shit you would actually do something instead of virtue signaling on a gaming forum so save it lol.

    They're right, players shouldn't be using video game platforms for something they're not meant to be used.

    guy speaks up for hong kong on his own stream/blog whatever

    couple thousand sees/reacts

    guy speaks up for hong kong on a tournament, tens of millions are in uproar and it gets a massive effect on social media.

    yeah I wonder which is more effective

    this whole "I dont wanna see the real world in my video games" thing is doing nothing but perpetuates the ignorance for human suffering in the west.

    and dont come back at me with the whole "nothing's gonna change anyway" BS, you have to at least try.

    I guarantee 90% of this thread will assume Riot is shilling for Tencent when they're really just trying to stop more retarded politics from unnecessarily entering another field.

    Exactly. In a world where politics is literally everywhere and barely escapable, I find it quite nice to be able to "turn off" my head and relax with some esports or actual spots event or what have you.

    I daresay that riot may have fanned the flames a bit with their statement since most of their demographic are anti social and awkward and will most likely make it a point to try and do HK signs or what have you just to be rebellious and "for the lulz".

    I'm glad I have adblock enabled on youtube. As for Riot, of course they don't want their tournaments to go in full political talks mode like Hearthstone did.

    Corporations seeking to establish global monocultures of placated consumerists that are not allowed to express their political views are pretty much villains who wish to exploit the young and naive, and they have no moral basis to be asking for anything.

    Honestly, when I log into a game, I log in to avoid world politics..

    I'm gonna ignore your conjecture and focus on this bit here. You honestly think that some limp-neck nerds holding signs or yelling lines at an esports event is going to cause Hina to fundamentally change their governing style?

    If you say yes, then I wish I shared in your naivety.

    In that case you need to play open source games, as the companies you promote will always be trying to shape politics in their favour.

    obviously not, and it's not the point either.

    but what it COULD do is reduce the amount of bootlicking western companies do with the chinese if the backlash is big enough

    and that is at least something.
