Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan has expressed concerns about the punishment imposed on Hearthstone player Chung ‘blitzchung’ Ng Wai.
Talking to the Washington Post, Blizzard’s vice president and Overwatch game director said, “I was relieved when they reduced his suspension. And I think the suspension should be reduced more or eliminated. But that’s just me.”
“I’m obviously a huge supporter of free speech,” he added. “It’s something that’s very important to me. It got to me personally. I think the punishment was too harsh and I was greatly relieved when they gave his money back. I think that was extremely important.”
