What’s it called when you hear about something and then after that you start notice it everywhere?
Because after that south park episde of them making fun of companies bending over backwards for Chinese censor I’ve noticed it going down everywhere. Blizzard, NBA, Marvel, Disney, Apple, I saw a comment here yesterday with a huge list of companies and how they let the Chinese control and censor them. Hopefully someone saved it and can link to it.
I’m quitting WoW classic. This is an absolute atrocity. Who knew they’d become a Chinese puppet company.

So far blizzard have:
Said sorry to China
Had employees walk out
Locked peoples ability to delete there accounts
HongKonger here, all i can say is thank you, thank you and thank you for all those supporting us
I’m doing my part!
Can we please include the other half of the business, Activision on this, too? I guarantee some execs from that side had some say in this, too.
I’m glad regardless of everyone’s backgrounds we can come together and say **** blizzard
Boycott Apple as well. Theyre doing the exact same. Banning apps as well…
Damn, Buzzfeed, you are pretty slow to catch onto this one, aren’t you?
China #4. We Support The Revolution of Our Time.
Blizzard is now blocking people from deleting their accounts: https://twitter.com/Espsilverfire2/status/1182001007976423424?s=20
So where is the ******* boycott of the NBA?
Cancelled sub yesterday. Please do the same fellow subscribers. Your games will still be playable and you can always resub at no additional cost at a later time if you change your mind or Blizzard changes their policy.
Why the **** would a gaming company decide to just take a loud, obnoxious, highly visible position in one of the most tense situations on the planet right now? On. The. Wrong. Side. ??
I mean, they’re volunteering to alienate a huge portion of their audience, without cause or need, in the best case scenario. In the worst, which they’ve chosen, they alienate the young, freedom-loving residents of most nations in the world, who have absolutely no reason to keep supporting their products. Gaming is one of the most competitive industries on the planet and its trivial for someone to just cut their subscription and move to a competitor’s product.
Congratulations, Activision-Blizzard, you’ve just opted to create a movement to boycott your company from scratch.
ahahaha been going on for a wee while, been plenty of chatter about it….
And then poor old buzzfeed comes late to the party with “There’s a movement….”
Uninstalled everything from my pc last night.
Is this an out of season April Fool’s joke?
[/r/FuckBlizzard/](https://www.reddit.com/r/FuckBlizzard/) is now a thing.
Blizzard can go to hell
It’s asking for a photo ID to cancel my account. That’s not shady at all. /s
Edit: I’ve reported them to the FTC(https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov). I know the EU has a “right to be forgotten” law, but the FTC can be made aware that it’s an anti-consumer practice too. Bring attention to it.
I’m making a subreddit to help people leave, by helping ease them into a new game.
Cant wait to see what happens at Blizzcon this year.
All I know is I sure do suddenly have a lot of extra space on my hard drive.
Boycotting Blizzard for something like this doesn’t have to be about making Blizzard change.
It can simply be to feel good about your own values.
From Blizzard’s perspective, a boycott can easily be ignored. Unless the boycott costs them more than they can make from a nation of 1.3 billion people, Blizzard is going to choose China.
Corporations have no morals.
Support main here, all in. Blizz can put whatever they want in the TOS, and we can boycott for any reason we fancy.
As there should be. American companies shouldn’t have to bend over backwards to suck the Chinese market’s **** any time there is something that can even mildly offend them.
Boycott blizzard! Boycott until they remember the importance of democratic values.
Hmm. These blizzard threads sure are empty…
