'My statement is just 'trans people deserve human rights.' I don't think human rights are a political issue.'
Over 15 years, Blizzard's MMO was an obsession for many, but an addiction for others.
More than 30 people handed out t-shirts and held signs outside the fan convention, following a month of political controversy.
It’ll still have a focus on player-vs-player fighting, but now, you’ll be able to play co-op with friends and experience a campaign.
Blizzard President J. Allen Brack started off BlizzCon by apologizing for suspending a 'Hearthstone' pro after they made a pro Hong Kong statement.
It’s been a long time coming (and very heavily rumored!), but it’s real.
After considering leaving Blizzard’s card game behind, he’ll resume competitive play when his suspension lifts in 2020.
Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai is streaming a game about Hong Kong’s protest movement on Twitch while gamers get ready to protest BlizzCon next week.
“Your company claims to stand by ‘one’s right to express individual thoughts and opinions,’ yet many of your own employees believe that Activision Blizzard’s decision to punish Mr. Chung runs counter to those values.”
The members of American University who held up a “Free Hong Kong, Boycott Blizz” sign said they have no regrets.
The event was planned for New York City on Wednesday. But Blizzard can only hide for so long.
Blizzard will return prize money to Blitzchung but said that his support of Hong Kong protesters was made in a 'divisive' and 'deliberate' way.
