For PoE, China has their own client with their own rules and mtx. People like to blame Tencent for how price-gouging everything in PoE is but I really think it's just GGG being extremely greedy.
Can't always blame China for that, but that is their main market - mobile games. No one gouges like they do, they know it too well.

You people don't want to see a non-caucasoid country have any power in the world. This hysteria over anything Chinese is bordering on Nazi style race hatred and warmongering. Oh well. The days of Euro-American world domination are over. You're gonna have to learn to share from now on.

riot games owned by china
path of exile owned by china
warframe owned by china

fuck those three companies right?
They collect your information and proxy it to the CCP to cross reference with their list of dangerous individuals (disagrees with censorship, human rights violations, Taiwan being part of China, etc). Who knows what happens if they get a match.

Tencent is being oppressed by their own government too, and they are working with Nintendo there on top of that. Remember how Animal Crossing being banned in China?

I kinda saw this coming with the Unreal Tournament weapons skins being added to Warframe two weeks ago. Claimable via the Epic Store.
Let's see how long it takes before they remove Warframe from Steam.

It's nothing new. Xbox, Playstation and Switch(not sure about this one) have exclusive skins too. I don't see anything particulary wrong with Epic Store having its own skins. Exclusives sucks, sure, but it's not something that happened due to the acquisition. Just another way of advertising the game on new platform.

hong kong belongs to china.
Yep! That National Security Law which prohibits free speech against the government in a city that enjoyed western democracy for decades. All of that protesting and violence, they were just showing how happy they were with their government imposing authoritarian policies. Oh yea lets also not forget that disastrous "one child law". No communism here fellas, nothing to see!

You are the only one riding China's cock here mate. Yes it was far more westernized part of China because of that history. And yet the people of Hong Kong were DESPERATE to keep the CCP out of their business. Last time I checked the citizens were not protesting against British policies in 2019.

Tencent are looking to acquire plenty more developers, and have signalled interest in western dev and IPs for a time now. Gaming is bigger now than it's ever been (thanks in part to COVID), and streaming and subscription services will be doing huge numbers in the coming decade.

Just imagine if Tencent bought a load of popular devs and IPs, and then locked them away behind their own streaming platform. They're one of the biggest entertainment conglomerates in the world, and also the world biggest video game vendor, so it's not that far fetched.

So, what to do? Well, you buy the devs first, to protect your investment *cough*zenimax*cough*

what substance did you type? instead of just parroting the CNN/Fox News line of China bad, China communist LOL. And nice ducking of british colonialism. As i said keep riding China's cock.
Do you actually read what you type? Maybe you should look up the horrific damage the one child law did to families in China, including the new generation of lonely men that outnumber their female counterparts. The CCP is far from a nice, people loving government. Don't criticizes China man! Say only good things about China and their continued suppression of free speech.

you should look at all the atrocities the British did during their rule britania days or what the US did in asia during their war against communism, women raped children napalmed, and what the US is currently doing in the middle east and compare that to China enforcing their sovereignty over a land that was stolen from them. You have no arguments, the land belongs to China and there is nothing you can do about it. so go cry with that bitch prince charles and seethe harder LOL

Quitting Steam cold-turkey would be suicide, so expect a gradual process by thousand cuts (skins & free platinum via EGS), where they eventually retire Tennogen and change to EGS Creators. To eventually just delisting it on Steam. Like Epic did with Rocket League.

Fuck Epic, Fuck any dev who signs with them

I hope their game dies a slow fucking death

Who says Im not critical of the British or America? Wtf are you smoking man. How dose any of this shit have to do with China not being a communist nation? Nice pathetic deflection there. I don't give a fuck if Hong Kong belongs to China, I never said it doesn't. My issue was the authoritative National Security Law which prohibits by law protesting and criticizing the CCP. If you don't think there is nothing wrong with that then you are truly naive. Why don't you just move to China since you want to die on that hill.
