As written by IGN's Matt Kim, "Hong Kong is currently in the midst of a public protest that began earlier this year when the [local government] announced plans to enact laws that would allow China to extradite citizens from Hong Kong for judiciary reasons. Hong Kong citizens protested the laws, and while the city government has backed down from plans to enact them, the movement has grown as calls for liberation intensify."

October 6. Following his victory in a Hearthstone Grandmasters match, Chung was interviewed on the official Taiwanese Hearthstone stream by casters Virtual and Mr. Yee. During the interview, Chung wore a face mask, a reference to the anti-mask law recently enacted by China, and shouted, "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age!" The stream quickly cut to commercial, and on-demand footage has since been pulled from the internet.

October 8, Blizzard published an official statement, announcing Chung violated the 2019 Hearthstone Grandmasters Official Competition rules. As a result, Chung was removed from the Grandmasters and given a 12-month ban from participating in Hearthstone esports. Blizzard also rescinded the $10,000 USD in prize money Chung was set to receive.

UPDATE:
Blizzard subsequently reinstated the prize money and reduced the ban to 6 months.


So I personally think COMMUNISM IS TRASH, Jagex was owned by U.S. investors between 2012 and 2016, and is owned by Chinese investors since 2016. So if the same scenario would happen to a Runescape player, would they be banned(and loose prize money)? If so let me know ahead of time so I can stop playing/paying.

Good Argument, but my fridge isn't going to ban me from eating for 12 months.

At least give the full story: Blizzard subsequently reinstated the prize money, and reduced the ban to 6 months.
