The coronavirus forces Blizzard to change Hearthstone tournament
The recent outbreaks of the coronavirus in China have already ignited the red spotlights in the video game industry and several companies have been affected not only in relation to their products.
Blizzard unveiled today through a statement that will change the headquarters of the Masters Tour planned for Indonesia, given its proximity to the southeast region of China. This decision, as you can imagine, responds to the health emergency that is being experienced in the giant Asian country, caused by an unprecedented outbreak of the coronavirus.
This will represent some problems for the participants who planned to attend the Indonesian Masters Tour, so Blizzard will offer $ 250 USD to each competitor who must travel to Los Angeles and has already scheduled a flight to Indonesia. Thus, the company indicated that participants will only have to present documentation that accounts for the change in the reservation.
