    17:11 -- Look at these robots. They have no soul, no personality, no nothing. They look like objects or puppets. This is ultimately sad and frightening. "Conform -- Don't think -- Obey".

      Im of Chinese ancestry, but i can't stand how friggin oppressive mainland China is not very subtly taking over & ruining everything. I used to love Blizzard growing up, like vast majority of fans & gamers, i think Blizzard can go fuck itself!

          Why did they fire the commentators for something the player said?

            Because they had same thing in mind with Blitz. Before he said "Freedom for Hong Kong", two commentators said things like "Shouldn't we duck under the desk?"

                  America is a Corprate/Caitalist regime first, then some shadow of democracy. You'll see any of your rights cut, if it involves profit for the higher ups, remember that. Secondly, I completely agree with the decision to ban the guy. Since it's a sports tournament, not an arena for political debate. You never see people on the Olympics shout out protests etc. Since there are plenty of places for that? (You don't take a shit in your living room, you have a toilet for that)

                      New games may be shit in a couple of years. I may not buy a ps5 and just play my 200+ Xbox 360 games. When was the last time we had a good decapitator game like soldier of fortune?

                                    Hey Joe, you might find this interesting. In China gambling is illegal( With the exception of Macau, Hong Kong, etc) However, the Chinese love watching the NBA. I wonder how the Chinese government is dealing with 2K's microtransaction card pack situation? If anyone could get 2K to fall in line it might actually be the Chinese Government oldly enough( if they haven't banned the game already)

                                        This is bullshit. HK protesters are degenerates, they are burning metro stations, breaking shops, beating random bystanders. Pretty sure he was blocked for calling to violence against chineese in chat, but you are not reporting this. You are part of this propaganda.

                                            Even if you accept their anti freedom of speech stand as something ok.
                                            The two comentators has NOTHING to do with the statement. And thus firing then was WRONGFUL TERMINATION.

                                                      I don't know why people are acting surpised. This is Capitalism in action. For a corporation money is the only god and profit the sole aspiration, so what Blizzard/Activision did is good bussiness. Sure, some western audiences will ragequit and boycott the company, but not all will, while if they piss off China they might get censored and lose *ALL* of their Chinese customers.

                                                      This is what happens when you make economics the sole overpowering concern.

Welcome to every country in the anglosphere that isn't the United States! Just another influencing variable in big companies targeting the largest audience.
