Hong Kong Hearthstone contestant’s words and deeds were banned by Blizzard, and the defamatory Taiwan’s commentary was also punished.
After the NBA, things about Hong Kong-related speech spread to the e-sports project Hearthstone.
According to the “Qianjiang Evening News” reported on October 8, Hong Kong player “blitzchung” shouted in the interview after the final game of the second season regular season of the Asia Pacific Grand Master League last Sunday night. Improper slogans involving Hong Kong have caused an uproar.
In the evening, Blitzchung did not accept interviews in English commentary, but appeared in the Traditional Chinese Channel and brought a riot mask. In the face of such an unexpected situation, Taiwan’s commentary Mr. Yi and Stealing Mi (aka Virtual) decided not to ask questions about the content of the game just now. The stealing of rice is even more blitzchung’s slogan on the live broadcast, and blitzchung is indeed Do this.
This behavior has touched the bottom line of the Chinese community. Netease Blizzard and Blizzard China finally issued a formal announcement after a day of negotiations, removing blitzchung from the rank of Grandmaster and banned for one year, and no longer with Mr. Yi and stealing rice. The two nights explained more cooperation. In addition, the Hearthstone Channel has also removed all relevant video footage from the night.
