Blizzard Reduces the Punishment

Blizzard has lifted a year-long ban for professional player Hearthstone Blitzchung alias Ng Wai Chung. Because it received harsh criticism, the game company is considering its decision.

Hearthstone professional player Ng Wai Chung made post-victory comments at the Grandmasters tournament, supporting the Hong Kong rally. As a result, Blizzard handed down harsh penalties, erased all of his past victories at the tournament and suspended him for a year.

Blizzard’s decision also received severe criticism

After days of silence, the game company responded to anger and controversy over his sentence against Hearthstone player Ng Wai Chung.

In a letter to fans, the game company President J. Allen Brack said Blitzchung would still be able to claim his victory. The suspension is also reduced to six months.

“Every voice is important, and we strongly encourage everyone in the community to share their point of view in the many places available to express themselves. However, official broadcasts need to make a place where everyone is welcomed. To support that, we want to keep the official channel focused on the game, “he said.

Brack also denied Blizzard’s download of giving an initial sentence as a way to please China, a country that contributes a lot to developer revenue.

“The specific views expressed by Blitzchung were not a factor in the decisions we made. I want to be clear: our relations in China have no influence on our decisions,” he said.

The game company response emphasized that the tournament should not be a place for political discourse. What is considered political depends on Blizzard’s policies. But, Brack said Blizzard could handle the situation better.

“Over the past few days, many players, casters, esports fans, and employees have expressed concerns regarding how we determine penalties. We have the opportunity to stop, listen to our community, and to reflect on what we can do better. think, our process is inadequate, and we react too quickly, “he said.
