Traditionally, BlizzCon has been nothing except a full-scale lovefest between the company and its players. However that will not hold true this year. In what equals the video gaming generation’s political coming-of-age, Blizzard finds itself buffeted by a maelstrom of rage and contention after the company banned a professional Hearthstone gamer earlier on this month for supporting pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong.
