Can they detect whether someone's connection died during a multiplayer match? I suspect not.
When your connection "dies" 10 times in an evening when you're losing, but never when you're winning, well...

The other thing is I'm sure they're looking at patterns of quitting, not the occasional random disconnect.

So much about "freedom of speech".

Maybe you should actually read the First Amendment.

Constitutional freedom of speech doesn't apply to private corporations for the most part. The exceptions are for protected classes.
Of course, but we as a society are allowed to resist things that may technically be legal, but not in line with our collective morality. We are free to boycott any business that acts in a way that harms our basic freedoms.
Absolutely. I was just helping Jacob clarify to Mr. Pit.

Whilst true, it's also true that he who has the gold makes the rules. If you bite the hand that feeds you you can probably expect to stop being fed. He should tell Blizzard to go fuck themselves but then he's turning down a possible fortune for playing a video game. Unless you're already loaded walking away from that is a lot easier said than done. So you can't blame him for being cautious. It was good of him to mention the broadcasters and people should not forget about them and keep boycotting Blizzard for that if no other reason. Personally, I hope those two sue Blizzard for dismissal without cause and win a truck full of money.

Yup, I don't disagree with any of that.

I can't agree with this. This is just succumbing to political correctness. If someone is trying to spread a message of truth due to some injustice, then you should take advantage of ALL possible platforms to reach as many people as possible. Don't be afraid to speak the truth, even if it's hard for some to hear, that's their problem. Now that he did this, many more know about the situation that otherwise would not. The truth is appropriate everywhere.

Protesting shall only be permitted in the specified protest zone, which are located five miles from the venue next to the sewage processing facility. Proximity to said facility is strictly coincidental and not a statement on the value of protesting.

No wait, that's kneeling in the nfl.

Muahhh I wouldn't give a fuck if he said that, or took a knee because you can do that kind of shit here in America.
Colin Kaepernick would like a word.

The difference is that blitzchung protested an issue based on reality; on things actually going on systematically in China and one can easily show the evidence. Colin protested a non-issue directly contradicted by factual data and originated from a racist and victimhood mindset. And for those prone to straw-man other people's arguments: I am not saying there is no police violence or that there's nothing of anything.

Pretty sure Colin is protesting a real issue.


It's not even a valid comparison. There's an infinite gulf between ejecting someone because they hurt your bottom line in a free land -- they have free speech, you have free speech, you take your chances -- and ejecting someone because they hurt your bottom line in a dictatorship that brooks no dissent.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. How are they different exactly? Both Colin and Blitz are protesting the poor treatment of minority groups. They're both doing it using the status granted them by their elite performance in high profile (e)sports industries. They both live in the free world. They were both unfairly blacklisted by the corporations. Colin won a multimillion dollar settlement from the NFL for being blacklisted.

Blizzard really stepped in it. All Blizzard had to do was to say, as other companies do, "The personal opinions of Blizzard prizewinners do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Blizzard, Inc, its staff or employees," and leave it at that.

Except that's not sufficient for China. The NBA is in deep shit because some owner mouthed off over Hong Kong as well and now China is freaking the fuck out over that too.

Bliz/Activision did what it had to do to maintain it's business in China. It's craven and chickenshit, but let's not pretend that it's not the status quo.

Someone on NPR made the point that the way China is acting with regards to Blizzard and the NBA is actually a trade violation and needs to be handled as such.
