Heh.

This kinda really #ing hilarious considering the #astic mobile game called Diablo Immortal and the whole drama revolving around that well.

They built that game for the Chinese not for Americans, so uhh...

HA HA! (points)



So basically the Chinese are on their own Feminazi Censorship.

No rewards based on rank, no distortions of history, etc ROFLMAO

China censors all kinds of stuff, games included. Every Chinese person I know uses a VPN to get around the blocks. I'm pretty sure the Chinese government knows about the VPNs and either turns a blind eye towards them or they can't keep up.

Either way, you'll still have your Chinese friends in WoW and Diablo, if they are dedicated gamers.

The riskier and more volatile the Chinese market becomes, the better it is for us in the west.

Once developers start thinking it's safer just to stick with us than to go all in with China we will all benefit.

Even the Chinese players will benefit because it was the recent devotion to their market that started destroying games to begin with.

I hope China goes overboard and starts banning our movies too.

Good.

Maybe developers will stop bastardizing games to curtail towards the Chinese market.

Online games are used as avenues to bypass censorships. Now that Project Dragonfly is complete the Communists Party needs to get rid of competing ways people get their information. Only their propaganda will be allowed and reeducation will be available for those who disagree!

I'd heard that diablo game was gonna be pretty bad but it must be a real pile of # if an entire country wants to ban it.

So won’t the entire economy of WoW crash without the Chinese gold farmers?

I haven’t played in years, but it is what I remember most.

The censorship we are seeing, the social justice lynch mobs... They come from China. All the crazy far left stuff we are dealing with is imported straight from China. From the struggle sessions to social credit...

I love the Chinese people but their government is terrifying and delusional.
