Prancer Drama Family Fantasy. The public's response, which included a boycott and a letter from United States Congress representatives, prompted Blizzard to reduce the punishment, but not to eliminate it.
The stream was cut off shortly after. The company cited a rule that prohibits Grandmasters players from offending the public or impugning Blizzard's image.
Blitzchung, in an interview afterwards, stated that he had done the act of protest because his effort towards the social movement over the preceding months sometimes interfered with his preparation for the tournament.
Blizzard additionally terminated the contract with the two stream casters that had been conducting the interview, "Virtual" and "Mr. Yee"; viewers believed the two had been encouraging Blitzchung to express his message, and thus also ran afoul of the rule.
Yee only knew moments before the interview that Blitzchung would be wearing a mask, and when Blitzchung started his statement related to the protest, the casters ducked their heads under their desk, so that it was evident that Blitzchung was only speaking for himself.
Virtual stated that he had yet to be told why he had been fired from Blizzard's Taiwan offices. Due to the political nature of this event, the official mainland Chinese sources are against Blitzchung's action; on the other side, most other sources are encouraging his action.
Both fight for their own political interests. Since Blitzchung's actions, which the Chinese government considers to be against China's national dignity  , a Sina Weibo social media post on Blizzard's official Hearthstone channel, run by the company's Chinese publishing partner NetEase , publicly condemned his action.
And there are many criticisms on Weibo of what some perceive as Blitzchung's acts of treason and separatism.
Some other commentators felt that Blizzard acted out of caution for its business interests with China,  both Chinese government who had censored support for the Hong Kong protests [ citation needed ] and the Chinese technology giant Tencent a partial owner of Blizzard.
Some criticized the weight and impact of Blitzchung's ban as an unfair treatment when compared to lesser penalties that Blizzard had placed on Overwatch League professional players for vulgar statements and gestures on camera.
The letter said that, given Blizzard's stature in the gaming community, its decision "could have a chilling effect on gamers who seek to use their platform to promote human rights and basic freedoms".
Several long-term players of Blizzard's games discussed a boycott of Blizzard to encourage Blizzard to revoke the ban on Blitzchung. Supporters of the Hong Kong protest began to post fan art of Blizzard's own Overwatch character, Mei , a Chinese native, as a sign of support for Blitzchung and the protests following the ban.
On October 9, at the end of a Hearthstone Collegiate Champs match following Blitzchung's ban, players of the losing team, American University , held up a sign that said "Free Hong Kong, Boycott Blizz" on their player camera before the broadcast quickly cut away.
Player cameras were resultingly removed from the event's coverage and replaced by images of the game's leading characters.
Additionally, player interviews were said to be discontinued for the rest of the competition. Five days after the incident, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack wrote that, after reviewing the situation, Blizzard felt the penalties applied were not appropriate, though they were still concerned about how Blitzchung and the casters took the discussion away from the game and into political discourse.
Brack stated they will reinstate Blitzchung's winnings, reduce his ban from Grandmasters to six months, and reduce the casters' bans to six months.
Brack asserted that "our relationships in China had no influence on our decision". Protests continued at the BlizzCon convention on November 1—2, Fight for the Future planned to arrange an "umbrella protest" at the event to demonstrate their disapproval of Blizzard's actions.
When the Australian developer Immutable, makers of the online digital card game Gods Unchained , offered to cover Blitzchung's lost winnings and invite him to their upcoming tournament, their game servers were subject to a denial-of-service attack.
We wouldn't ban or punish a Fortnite player or content creator for speaking on these topics," a message also shared by its CEO Tim Sweeney on Twitter.
Riot Games , which is wholly owned by Chinese company Tencent,  had been accused of censoring the words "Hong Kong" in the team name " Hong Kong Attitude " as the initialism "HKA" during the League of Legends World Championship in the week following Blizzard's ban, but Riot identified instances where both names were used interchangeably and asserted that there were no restrictions on the phrase "Hong Kong".
