The #blizzard #heartstone thing is so absurd - how can such big company have such a shitty pr team?
Could have simply cut the stream and contacted the guy in private to avoid all of it. Taking the prize pool and 1 year ban just paints a target on your back. Either they are way to confided or are absolute morons lol.
@Wraptile Yes. For the record, I think it was incredibly inappropriate to use that platform for the person's outburst. But the severity of the punitive punishment is just indicative of how much Blizzard is under China's influence, and I'm kind of thankful they've made it easy to see their true spineless selves.
