  • Blizzard Gives Six Month Ban to American University Team that Already Forfeited the Rest of the Season

    No, the casters weren't banned.

    It took Blizzard nearly a week to decide they were going to ban the American University Hearthstone players that held up a "Free Hong Kong, Boycott Blizz" sign during a recent tournament event. A week to decide that they were going to ban the team. It took them less than a day for Blizzard to issue a ban against professional Hearthstone competitor Blitzchung after he voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests.

    Today, Blizzard issued a ban against the team that already imposed a self-ban on themselves....

  • Blizzard Chooses Not to Ban American University Hearthstone Players Who Showed Support for Hong Kong

    The team decided to forfeit the season anyway over Blizzard's double standards.

    Blizzard continues to dig themselves into an ever deepening hole this week. It all began when Blizzard banned a professional Hearthstone player and took away his earnings after he voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests during a live-stream interview. The troubles continued when lawmakers and plenty of others loudly voiced their disgust over what they did. Some Blizzard employees even staged a walkout the other day to show their support for the banned player and broadcasters....

    Not only did Blizzard quickly cut away from the interview...

  • Blizzard Deletes Interview with Hearthstone Pro who Called for Liberation of Hong Kong

    A Hearthstone Grandmaster winner voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests and was silenced.

    During a post-game interview at the Hearthstone Grandmasters tournament, a player from Hong Kong was interviewed by the official Taiwanese Hearthstone stream. The player, Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, appeared in a gas mask similar to those worn by those participating in the ever ongoing Hong Kong protests.

    Wearing these masks has recently been banned in Hong Kong. This anti-mask law was enacted in an effort to deter the protests. This law...

  • The 2019 International Main Event Begins

    The 2019 International Main Event Begins

    Over $33 million is up for grabs.

    Valve just passed along word that the Main Event festivities for The International Dota 2 Championships for 2019 have officially kicked off. This is all going down at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China.

    This is the ninth annual event and, once again, it has broken all sorts of records by having the biggest community-driven prize pool of over $33 million. First place is looking to get $15,276,981 once all is said and done. I think that amount can even go higher before the event ends, so that's kind of...

    Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

    This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

    The original plan from Red Candle Games was...

    Total War: Three Kingdoms Sells More than 1 Million Units in First week

    China's growing market is a big reason why.

    Total War: Three Kingdoms has become the franchise's fastest-selling game. In its first week of being available for purchase, the game sold more than one million copies with a peak concurrent player count nearing 200,000 people at one point.

    A big reason for this game's massive success is due, in large, to the rising popularity of PC gaming in China. Both fans and journalists in China have said that Total War: Three Kingdom is one of the "more remarkable Three Kingdom games they've seen."...

  • Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar

    Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar


    A new horror game that released just six days on Steam, Devotion, has been pulled from the distribution platform. The game was pulled without warning but it wasn't done by Valve. It was pulled by the game's developer, the Taiwan based studio Red Candle Games.

    Though the game is only temporarily removed (more on that later), it was done following a rather hellish few days for the studio. The game has been relentlessly review bombed by a number of irate Chinese citizens and, quite probably, a number of Chinese based propaganda groups such as the 50 Cent...

    Ubisoft to Revert Aesthetic Changes in Rainbow Six Siege

    The latest Rainbow Six Siege developer blog starts out by addressing the elephant in the room: The aesthetic changes that many decried as "censorship" in order to have one universal version of the game across all regions.

    Turns out that review bombing a game can lead to results, because Ubisoft says that they will move forward with reverting these changes and other planned changes.
    We have spent the last week working on solutions and have decided that we will be reverting all aesthetic changes.

    WHEN ARE THESE CHANGES BEING REVERTED

  • Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    China sure does love its censorship. By that I mean actual censorship, not that fake "censorship" bullshit that people like to throw around like it's going out of style when they have no other avenue to turn to in an argument. No, we're talking about real, bonafide censorship from the Chinese government here. The latest victim appears to be the Steam Community.

    This information comes to us courtesy of ValveTime on Twitter. They pull their information from GreatFire, a website that appears to keep track of the sites and services blocked in China....
