Ng Wai “blitzchung” Chung, the Hearthstone player who was banned from professional play for one year by Blizzard, has released a roughly translated statement regarding Blizzard’s decision to reduce his ban and reinstate his prize winnings. Chung thanked his fans for their support over the last week, and expressed gratitude towards Blizzard for its decision to reduce his punishment.
“For tournament prizing, I quoted what Blizzard said on the official website, they mention that I played fair in the tournament and they believe I should receive my prizing,” Chung wrote. “This is the part I really appreciate. Blizzard also said they understand for some this is not about the prize, but perhaps for others it is disrespectful to even discuss it. People from Blizzard had explained this to me through a phone call and I really appreciate that and I accept their decision on this part.”
