    Blitzchung is a single person who used Blizzard’s platform to spread his personal beliefs. There is no comparison.

    Are you fucking kidding me lol. Do you even know Blitzchung's message? Some of your hardcore BLM supporters are sometimes so blinded that you think that's the only thing that matters in the entire world. Get the out of your echo chamber sometimes.

    Let's not even get into racism in China.

    Either all lives matter, or no lives matter.

    There is no other way to think about it. BLM is just a fundraising mechanism for the DNC.

    What a load of blatant hypocrisy. There's only one motivating factor among the Acitivions-Blizzard C levels and that's potential profits.

    All lives matter implies black lives matter.

    Sylvanas would disagree. Also havn't Warcraft been one big mixed up racewar in its core since release?

    Imagine if Sylvanas becomes woke in Shadowlands as a result of all this. Surely hope the storywriters keep it calm and sway away from "The Last of Us 2" roadmap, cause damn that looks grim in the public right now.

    Keep videogames and movements in reality seperated please.

    So the question is, how is this going to combat racism in the US, which I assume this is trying to target, refer back to my post, is this an admission from Blizzard, after introspecting that they are racist company and this is a pledge to change?

    Or is this meant to broadcast the most obvious and milquetoast hot take ever made by a company, i.e racism is bad.

    If the latter, who are you trying to talk to? Your audience who by en large most likely already knows that racism is bad and aren't racist. Or the racists who don't care about your opinion on their racism.

    I believe blizzard had an established rule to not spread your political beliefs via the esports platform. Bliztchung broke that rule and was punished in doing so.

    You, low IQ, people comparing a single house, a single bone broken, a single child dead, with a whole race, it is pure #idiocracy.
    You compare a single house on fire, if like ALL "BLACK LIVES" were killed in that incident. How can you even breath with that kind of logic in your head.


    Another one was making a video comparing "broken bones", trying to preach the same example as you did, saying somthing like "so you got an ankle bone in pain and you go to the doctor. You don't say "ALL MY BONES HURT!!!", you just say "my ankle bone hurts". So people must understand why we are not using "all lives matter"" Dude, are you drunk ? Not all bones are broken, just like not all "BLACK LIVES" are victims, just like not all HOUSES are on fire.

    Stop spreading sh1t examples, cause for people who don't think for themselfs and have an IQ =<100, it will kind of make sense, just like it does to you.


    When someone is a victim, they are not ALL VICTIMS, doesn't matter we talk about race/colors/rape/theft/etc.!

    All lives matter, all races have shitty persons, rapist, burglers, scums. Don't bring #IDIOCRACY in our planet.

    Calling anyone a racist should get you a ban, imo. Considering how easy it is to call someone that without any proof they treat anyone different based on race. The amount of damage that can potentially cause should be punishable to just throw out brainlessly.

    Blizzard keep quiet about what they do behind the scenes: WAAAH BLIZZARD DON'T GIVE A FUCK.

    Blizzard post what they do behind the scene: WAAAAH THEY ARE JUST DOING IT TO LOOK GOOD TO MAKE MORE MONEY

    You're all a bunch of chimps

    Never understood people's desire that companies do virtue signaling. Only reason a company does anything political is because they think it earns money and favor. Whenever a company speaks about it all I can hear is "like us and buy our products because look how we parrot what you guys value".

    *shrug* I really don't get it...

    • Subtle racism

    It's just tiring. I love games, but the gaming community is reflective of the multitude of cringe and memes jokes, the stereotypical neckbeards. I can understand some people's point of views, but for fuck's sake, it's a nice gesture. Whether it's PR, whether it's virtue signaling (whatever that means), it's still a nice gesture and I'm not going to tarnish it by just assuming it's a cold action by a corporation for the sake of appeasing societal pressure. I'll take it as it is and keep it moving. I can't help but roll my eyes the moment stuff like this gets posted, because the worst of you on here come out. The cockroaches who feel the need to sow bitterness, pettiness and disdain just because an inkling of the real world seeped into your precious escape of video games.

    So many of you suck as human beings, severely lacking in empathy, and I hope that through some struggle and hardship, you'll develop into more functional and kinder humans.

    It's because most people are relatively dim creatures. It's true what Marx said: democracy will lead to socialism.

    If Blizzard could profit from police brutality, they would be plastering Trump portraits all over Twitter.

    Dont believe corporations, look how they behave when the push comes to shove.

    I know that Blizzard went into his penalty over the fact he used Blizzard’s platform to spread his own personal message.
    This post is Blizzard’s stance as a company. They are separate incidents. Blizzard can choose to support, or not support, whomever they want.

    To some people who try to make it mean that, sure. The issue is that All Lives Matter was created to undermine the meaning behind Black Lives Matter, and some people still use it for that.

    Its really not, because Blizzard and other corporations completely forget this stance when they are marketing for china and islamic countries.

    Not liking that your favorite white skinned race can now be black is the epitome of racism.

    Or is this just another example of an American company only caring about politics that benifit them financially with good PR while ignoring the reprehensible actions they took in the past.

    As for support for black communities and diverse representation, guess whats the only class they removed for Diablo immortal game being made for the chinese market? That's right, Witch Doctor. Oh and should I also point out that Tracer, and soldier 76 is straight in the Chinese market.

    If blizzard truely cared about diversity and inclusion, they would take the hit, and stand up for what they belived in even if it costs them their bottom line. The reason most people are against this move is because while its doing the right thing now, they have not done the right thing in the past because it cost them their bottom line. I sincerely believe if China threatened blizzard by removing their 5% share in activision blizzard for doing this, they would remove the donations in a heart beat.
    The Hong Kong thing was bad optics for Blizzard but they were in the right. Maybe not completely but to a major extent. Esports event isnt' a place for what the guy did, and in the end they backpeddled on all his punishments anyway. Imagine if the guy started rallying for Trump instead and got disqualified. Probably people would be far more accepting.

    As for the corporate thing...sure, companies are bad because they are doing whatever they can to make money. That's what we can believe, but the reality is that is the system we are living in. Don't blame the companies, blame the system. They are just playing the game by the rules alreayd set.
