If you're still playing any Activision \ Blizzard games I think it's a good time to drop them. I don't care how much you love overwatch or how "diverse" and "important" it is to you, you are literally supporting someone who supports complete opposite to what you stand for.

@NaiJi @Deiru i'd play destiny 2 if they wouldn't ban every linux user who attempts to run their game with steam proton

@cdmnky @NaiJi That's shitty but a bit understandable, but also very shitty and they need to stop.

@Deiru @cdmnky oh holy shit, I didn't even know about it! now my previous statement seems a bit inappropriate too

@NaiJi @Deiru apparently they think wine is an emulator and ban all emulators because it breaks their super invasive anti-cheat system which constantly phones home with your system hardware info and background processes iirc

@cdmnky @NaiJi
NO. Destiny is likely using 3rd party anti-cheat solution that detects modified libraries, and I think the trigger in that situation is DXVK, that have also caused issues for warframe, to the point were DE stated that they can't really do anything about it and advised people not to use DXVK.

@cdmnky @NaiJi The problem can be solved by whitelisting needed stuff, which afaik what blizzard did when they started wave of DXVK bans.

@cdmnky @NaiJi It's a shitty complication, but now it's no longer "just" Bungie's problem, it's a problem of a bigger industry as a whole refusing to acknowledge existence of extra platforms that they have to support, opting for the tried and true bullshit of "W-w-whel it says it need Windaus!!!!!"

@Deiru they also banned him, took his prize money and fired the broadcasters

@cdmnky Which is all stated in the photo? Except for casters.

@cdmnky @Deiru they don't want to ruin their relationships with Chinese companies lmao oh this is the toppest kek ever. I mean news on blizzard website didn't say what he did so I thought he said nigger on stream or something but this is even better.
@hj @Deiru yeah, twitter is going nuts on this right now

boycott blizzard games!

easy for me to do 'cause they don't fucking have battlenet on linux
@cdmnky @Deiru sorry i can't boycott blizzard because i don't even play their games besides oldest ones (i.e. Lost Vikings, Rock'n'Roll Racing).

This even funnier after news about NBA tweet about HK. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-basketball-nba/houston-rockets-general-manager-apologises-for-hong-kong-protest-tweet-idUSKCN1WL04T
@hj @Deiru this is fucking hilarious to me
the president supposedly ordered corporations to stop doing business with china but they're kissing china's ass more than ever
@cdmnky @Deiru that's corporate world for you, president saying "pls stop" means shit, sanctions are somewhat more powerful, but sanctioning Russia, which barely exports anything besides gas and oil is one thing, sanctioning china which hosts world's majority of electronics production and not to mention CHEAP electronics production, is another thing - severe economic consequences, you see. Trade war is real, and china's got US by the balls.
@hj @Deiru tbf, everyone has the US by the balls

hell, even fucking turkey and saudi arabia
@cdmnky @Deiru i don't think situation with oil is as drastic as with electronics tho.
@hj @Deiru you should read up on the genocide of the kurds

saudi calls them terrorists, turkey doesn't want them in their borders and the us used them to fight isis instead of their own troops

and now we've just left and they're being massacred by the other two as we speak
