I dunno man, GDPR penalties can be enormous. Do you think Facebook and Google would have complied otherwise? They can fine for up to 4% of global annual turnover (revenue, not profit)

This is illegal, and unless Blizzard is trying to have a huge class action law suit against them they need to allow people to delete their accounts.

Even fucking EA is not this crazy which is saying a lot ironically.

If you don't need an ID to vote then I don't see why you need an ID to drive. Fight the power!

To be fair, characters don't need a reason to be gay. No one bats an eye when a character is implied straight.

they are literally blocking people from deleting accounts lol. They have deleted reddit pots that made the top page. They have banned all comments everywhere. They have stopped HS live interviews going forward.

Sorry but theres no way they are gonna do the live blizzcon lol. They will refund the tickets

Tencent being a huge part of this decision seems a bit dubious. Turns out League of Legends e-sports scene is allowed to freely say the word "Hong Kong" since a team at worlds is Hong Kong Attitude. Riot is far more actively owned by Tencent than the measly 4.8% ownership of Blizzard
