2019
On October 5th 2019, professional Hearthstone player Blitzchung called for the liberation of Hong Kong during a live post-match interview. Shortly after this interview, Blizzard, the company that created Hearthstone and many other popular games, banned Blitzchung from competition for a year. Following his suspension, many have protested and criticized Blizzard for their decision making and have accused the company of censoring free speech to protect its close ties with China. Clips of players live-streaming Blizzard games during the time of the 2019 Hong Kong protests are juxtaposed with raw footage from the protests.
