Last Sunday, Hong Kong Hearthstone player Ng "blitzchung" Wai Chung caused quite the stir. As reported by Inven Global, Blitzchung appeared on the official Hearthstone Taiwan stream after his Grandmasters match wearing a gas mask, before shouting "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age!" in protest against China's actions in the region.

Those simple words not only got Blitzchung banned for one year, but he was also forced to forfeit thousands of dollars in prize money, and the casters who conducted the interview were also fired. 

In solidarity with Blitzchung, fellow online gamers have threatened to boycott Blizzard and Hearthstone over the ruling. Some are even planning to attend Blizzcon wearing a T-shirt in support of Hong Kong. 

"This is the kind of idea that needs more support. Not buying a game isn't going to "send a message" to Blizzard but taking the opportunity to publicly display support during one of their widely viewed events is," one gamer wrote on reddit. Another added, "I believe HUMAN RIGHTS and JUSTICE are always more important than money."
 
A third chimed in support of Blitzchung, writing, "I've been playing Hearthstone since beta. I've uninstalled it from my PC and phone, and have also uninstalled the Blizzard app. I will not be supporting Hearthstone, Blizzard, or Activision ever again." 

My hope is that this petition will show Blizzard Entertainment how disgusted their user base is with their actions.
