He didn't say he "supports Hong Kong," he said "liberate Hong Kong." That doesn't mean he should be banned, obviously, but they are very different things considering many Hong Kongers and even a good amount of the protestors aren't pushing for total independence.

Besides, China's economy has been on a steady increase for the past 25 years. Saying shit like "There is no future benefit" Shows just how ignorant they are to the coming threat. Within a decade China will eclipse the United states. Even loyal Allies to the US has started shifting away from them, introducing Chinese into their curriculum to strengthen their relations.

Companies, especially publicly traded ones tend not to think about long term too much. It's all about quarter over quarter, year over year growth to satisfy the board of directors and the shareholders. This is proven time and time again.

China is about to turn 1/6 of the world's population from a formerly nearly 3rd world country, into a country with enormous wealth and wide ranging economy. Companies would not be acting in a fiduciary manner to their shareholders if they weren't trying to capture marketshare in China.

China’s playing 4D capitalist chess on their asses so stuff like Blizzard’s values don’t mean shit if it’s making them money, just look at WWE doing business with the Saudi Arabian government.

Because for any fringe esport title that in no way was justifiably designed for spectation, but too popular not to force an esports scene on...

China doesn't just make or break the difference between profitability, China IS the profitability.

If you have a tiny percentage of the NA and European population, and you have one quarter of t hat percentage of the Chinese population, you just tripled your viewership by being in China.

I don't even give a rat's ass about the Hong Kong crap. Remember that this whole thing came about as a result of a law that was passed by the Legislative Council of Hong Kong, which is elected by any adult over the age of 18 who is not mentally incapacitated or in the armed forces.

Basically, a not insignificant portion of the population considers a closer relationship with China to be in their best interest. Remember that the 1997 Hong Kong handover was not about making Hong Kong independent but instead about giving China back a colony that was taken from them through military force. What we are looking at now is a protest over a law that some of Hong Kong's population would consider to be a violation of the "two systems, one country" doctrine that was central to the 1997 handover. The big emphasis is on "some" because the effect of a criminal extradition bill on sovereignty is definitely up for debate. The western media would have you believe that 99% of the people in Hong Kong are absolutely frothing at the mouth to be free from China in any way, shape, or form. The truth is that some want to be under China but have free elections, some want to be totally free, and some want to be under China. I have no clue what the actual proportions are, but frankly I do not trust western media institutions, especially when they are telling me to pick a side in a foreign conflict of any kind. I have seen too much CIA government overthrow bullshit (Iran? Grenada? Libya? Nicaragua anyone?) to not at least suspect that the side that is portrayed sympathetically in the media could be a US government-funded wedge to erode the sovereignty of another country.

I'm sick of this globalized world that asks you to be a God and automatically determine who's right and who's wrong across the fucking ocean through the easily distorted lens of journalism. I'm not saying that China is good (I sure as hell wouldn't want to live there) but I'm just an American so I have zero stake in what began with an anti-colonial shitfit between China and the UK in 1997. I can't tell you whether the majority of people in Hong-Kong share my opinions on China. I might start to care when this stuff has an actual effect on the quality of what I am buying or some other change of that magnitude because that would actually be something that affects my lifestyle. I actually think it's hilarious that normalfag companies can no longer say bad things about China, which is obviously a terrible country to live in. Meanwhile companies with closer ties to the Chinese government than a 5% stake who provide a far wider range of goods than electronic entertainment (and that are made with what is basically slave labor) will not be boycotted by most of the people who are taking a side in a political event across the ocean.

Fair point about not trusting the US media to deliver the truth of the matter. Of course not everyone in HK wants to be free of China. Yet many do. It's been a successful experiment all its own and could operate just fine going forward in that capacity. Especially if allowed to choose its own elected officials.

The US is deeply corrupt but China makes its stench of corruption very easy to smell... It's quite out in the open. There are some non-American people that might try to defend the actions of the US govt despite all its horrors. Nobody defends Big Brother China but the Chinese.

You act like because you aren't interested in something that the population of viewers in dismissable in determining "organic popularity"? Not sure if televised are much different but hearthstone streams/tournaments are huge on YouTube. Tons of viewers including me its more fun to watch high level play than to try and keep up with the cards anymore (I've been playing since beta, started falling behind the meta as I slowed my playing around the time of League of Explorers.)

And the political thing is stupid but I guarantee the majority of players will keep playing and the game/company won't be affected too much. It's hearthstone. It's a hugely organically popular game.

The better counter would be that regardless of whether or not you are interested in eSports, corporations taking a hard stance on a political issue for profit is still morally reprehensible. That corporation can be a gaming company, a sports league, a clothing company, etc. Just because they don't wear or have interest in their apparel doesn't mean that people can't say company was acting immorally and with a profit motive. I mean, sure, that's all corporations do. But they do act morally when there's a greater backlash to their bottom line for not doing so.

Therefore, boycotting Blizz is worthwhile.

Okay after talking to a guy from HK apparently independence is really not a popular thing. What they want ultimately is reunification.

The issue is just that China is treating them like shit and literally giving more political representation to corporations than people.
This is very parallel to the American revolution. I'm sure the vast majority of people considered themselves loyal British subjects until King dipshit started taking the piss. Probably not Sam Adams, but most people.

Unlike the colonies I think they really don't want full independence, just to be an autonomous state under China like they have been. Apparently the HK independence thing is mostly an exaggeration pushed by China to make it all seem more serious.
Ironically the only thing making the HK independence movement real is the frigging CCP and their dick moves.

No really. You think colonists instantly disavowed their country?

Do you not realize how many people sided with the British and slowly, slowly, slowly became more and more disenfrachised needing to be persuaded to the cause?

The biggest and most powerful group that didn't give a fuck for the crown was the Puritans, concentrated mainly in Massachusetts and Connecticut. They were numerous and influential, but they were absolutely not a majority.
Don't act like the colonists were against the crown from the start.

Regardless, the real difference is American identity was a much more prevalent thing in the people's minds. The people of Hong Kong don't think of themselves that way so much.

When HK was split three ways people generally identified with the country they came from instead of HK itself, which for a majority of HK citizens is China.
The calls for revolution are a young person thing right now. The old people think of themselves as Chinese, if not y'know, British.

I guess we're lucky to have an expert on Hong Kong here to clear that up then. If we didn't have you here we might mistakenly think that well over a century of prosperity, growth and freedom that would inconceivable in China might give them a sense of cultural identity as Hong Kong, and not China.

What's interesting is how we think we're so immune to other countries' propaganda, when we actively buy into bits and pieces of it when it suits us. That's the nature of it.

Just like the shareholders chugged down Blizzard's response yesterday. That thing wasn't for us, it was for them, carefully crafted in such a way as to as little as possible to us while fitting in everything they wanted to hear.

There's a difference between full independence and "Hey maybe we vote for our own fucking governor like an autonomous state of China and if we're gonna be a puppet state maybe you don't get to disappear us for agitating cuz the elections are rigged and that's pretty much not gonna let up at all"

And the reason the NBA and Blizz shit is so relevant to us is that China already strongarmed us into not acknowledging Taiwan independence, and now they exert their economic power to further those same ends in ways we never saw coming until they were already here.

But as terrifying as all of that is, while people are smashing all of the facial recognition surveillance cameras, their parents deep down still feel warm and fuzzy about being part of China again. Because that's how they felt 25 years ago when they couldn't elect the governor then either.

Give it another couple years, something's gotta break.

In America, I'd think closer to 10-20 years. Things break all the time in American government and are not fixed for a while.

Remember that time Retsupurae did a video on Pewdiepie and he got mad and all and replied with "I GOT MILLIONS OF VIEWERS I MAKE GOOD CONTENT!"?

I do. Hahahaha.

lol I just had myself banned from the classic wow subleddit by request.

It's was a microcosm of social media. It was so informative and full of good content allllll the way up until the launch of Classic WoW and it became a meme-filled trash heap of misanthropy and willful ignorance.
Information went from being the order of the day to being downblasted to hell for no reason.

For two weeks I've been answering people's questions and giving advice before burning out on the shitness of all the other commenters, then I came back. Not this time bitch.
That is 100% time I should have been using to farm Savage Gladiator Chain and Hand of Justice.

If y'all want Warrior or UI tips I'll be here or absolutely nowhere.
Classic is fuckin' great. circlejerk fuckin' sucks.

Please play on Bigglesworth so I can smash your dick off once the Honor system comes out.

I'm stuck on my gay friend's PVE server, I had started on Kirtonos PVP for several weeks but then ~10 rl friends/acquaintances started on Windseeker PVE ugh.

Can't wait for the BG's, but at least I see quite a few people that are manually flagged for PVP.

Are you a huntard or a shaman with that savage gladiator chain? I'm a druid on this server and it's pretty fun albeit kinda meh in certain regards. Hate being a jack of all trades and a master of none.

druid heal is amazing, druid tank/dps can compete with warriors when fully geared BWL+, even boomkin can be viable

That's the thing, I'm feral bear main and I feel like I'm useless until BWL/AQ comes out lol. I'm only 48 now, could probably off-heal if I get a kit for it at 60.

Honestly the best build for druids is the Tank/Heal build.

The downfall of a druid tank is that there are just certain fights you shouldn't tank. The 0/31/20 build solves that problem.

As a bonus this is also the Flag Carrier build. So enjoy that additional perk.
Gonna suck farming Crowd Pummelers, but do it.

You aren't a master of none. You are a master of off-tank threat.

I've never heard of that build but it sounds cool. I like how I get 20% more int from feral too so that could totally work. I tried to build it but I feel like I don't want a ton of stuff after the first 10-14 pts in resto just to feel like I can hold up to snuff tankwise, see pic.

>>744953 that's awesome, I just heard that they weren't viable for late game tanking due to blocks+parry being king for mitigation over just dodge>>744953

Block is legitimately important because Shield Block removes crushing blows from the table.
However, the game is a lot more about threat than mitigation in Vanilla. The warriors are dual wield tanking for god's sake. So get your Manual Crowd Pummelers and spam out mauls like a monster on the fights you need threat.

Honestly, druids are by far the better leveling tanks as well.

I also misspoke. I meant 0/30/21 with nature's swiftness, but they're both legitimate builds depending on the wants and needs of you and your guild.

But yes, Heart of the Wild is insane value. Absolutely best in the whole tree. Primal Fury is also absolutely insane, as it builds rage off crits even from yellow attacks. So with luck, the Maul train never ends, and that makes glancing blows a non-issue.

This hybrid build is honestly what makes Druids excel. The flavor of that is fantastic, plus they really have a strong role in raids, and pvp flexibility a prot warrior won't have and a fury/prot warrior DEFINITELY won't have.
Only downfall is there are definitely only 2 openings per 40 players in a raid for the druid tank max, with at least one Warrior tank being mandatory.

I'll probably rotate into something like that once I get geared at 60 and once battlegrounds are actually out, on the PVE server pvp is very few and far between and it's disappointing coming from the PVP server.

I really wanna get leader of the pack as it gives the raid a ton of DPS so long as we have some good physical dps.

Nice, I haven't had many problems leveling and I was able to tank Mara Princess at 47 last night with only a few hiccups with the growl resists on the 51 elite.

Forgot to mention I'll probably be omen of clarity/furor/feral for a while at 60
