Blizzards have managed to step in it ahead of BlizzCon this year after banning a Hearthstone player for declaring support of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. Dylan and Ashley discuss what Blizzard can do to fix the situation if Blizzard is in their right to ban the player and what potential outcome we could have.
