ShatterCast, Season 2 – PREMIERE! Blizzard and Hong Kong

Derrick Whitmore Uncategorized

Welcome to the Premiere of ShatterCast, Season 2! Recently, one of our viewers asked us to give our thoughts on a recent news story that our team is very passionate about.

A few weeks ago Activision Blizzard made news when they decided to penalize a player who made a brief statement supporting the protests in Hong Kong. Blizzard was met with almost instant fan outrage.

Activision Blizzard has since decreased their penalty but many people are still unhappy with how Blizzard handled things. At the center of the controversy is the concern that Blizzard acted in such a way because of outside pressure they may have felt.

Did Blizzard go too far with their original actions and not do the “right” thing? And how often in our own lives are we willing to stand up for what we believe is “right” even when we might feel outside pressure to do otherwise?
