China suspends Tencent from updating existing apps or launching new apps -report Anonymous 11/24/2021 (Wed) 16:15:48 Id: f38619 No. 476059
https://archive.md/Kf8lE >China has suspended Tencent Holdings from updating its existing apps or launching any new apps as part of a “temporary administrative guidance” against the tech giant, Chinese media outlets including Shanghai-based Chinastarmarket.cn, reported. >According to the report, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has told app stores and platforms to implement the order against Tencent apps from Wednesday in a harsh administrative punishment against the tech giant, which runs dozens of apps including the super app WeChat that has 1.2 billion users. >Tencent said in a statement that it is cooperating with the authorities on inspecting its apps, indirectly confirming the report. As far as I can tell, there's been no reason given for this. It came out of nowhere. As said in the article: >It is not known how long the suspension will last and the Chinese ministry has not published any information about the ban.
>>476059 BURN TO THE GROUND
This is obviously because the CCP has gone batshit under Winnie. They recently banned "flexing" wealth on social media. Dude's trying to become Mao 2.0.

I bet this is because of Tencent trying to push further into Western markets and gaming. The government has taken a very anti-gaming stance recently as well as punishing companies trying to move money out of China.
hurray
>>476070 The company is tying to move its money out of China by buying Western companies. This is very common, rich Chinese do it by buying houses.

Why? Is Tencent not sucking govt. balls not enough? Are Tencent suits not falling in line quickly? Has this ever occurred in the industry before?

>>476072 Exactly, except the money isn't actually 'leaving' per say, its taking a chunk out of all available competition. >>476062 >>476075 >trying He's the most successful so far at subdoing the Chinese and attempting to control every aspect of their lives. In terms of Tencent and all of these other Chinese companies, don't ever think that China is against Tencent. In every case, its just China giving the companies a firm reminder of who is in charge and not to spite them. If anything, the government usually has officials and people working within the company to audit to ensure its not disobeying government policy. In terms of this happening before, theres been recent shit happening with the largest real estate companies in China (namely Evergrande) which defaulted on loans and have been lying to investors causing economic panic in China/rest of the world. Its just starting, but this could be a reaction to that to ensure Tencent isn't behaving in a similar way. Though I'm sure conning all the American/Japanese investors out of their money would still be a win/win in their book
>>476065 I think it is pure authoritarianism. Pooh bears cult of personality has reached critical mass. He has elevated many Chinese people into the middle class. They have cars and phones and this is enough to win them over. Now he is taking advantage of that popularity and addressing "the gaming problem." Games are also a pretty big source of foreign influence, despite their sanitization. Incidentally, this is a good thing because hopefully foreign companies will stop trying to cater to China so fucking much. >>476078 They can't allow such a huge violation to stand in regards to real estate because it would discourage future investment. Although I'm still trying to figure out whether they actually want that or not; China seems like they are trying to pivot away from their model from the last several decades of exporting labor and become a self-sustaining superpower.
Why don't you guys like Tencent?

Gentlemen, y'all fail to comprehend the Chinese character, or rather the lack thereof. They are the type of being to run eachother over in the street, then crank back into reverse to finish the job. Han Chinese require a totalitarian to keep them in line. It doesn't have to be a fellow Han, but they are more easily managed that way. Many attempts have been made, especially in the last few centuries, to embed proper character into the common Chinese. Far more often than not, Chinese bite the hand that feeds them, and obey the hand that beats them. In this way Chinese civilization is fundamentally different from our own. In the last ~50 years alone the value of Chinese life among fellow Chinese has risen (barely), entirely due to the 1 child policy. The Chinese family, the cornerstone of their civilization, was forced to rely on one heir to maintain the entire family legacy; You can imagine how important this would make the heir, and the kind of pressure they'd be put under to succeed (or else). Their lives hold more value, but they have more responsibility to their large and aging family. Even with the former policy that once restrained the babymaking power of the Han, there are over a billion Chinese, and a single Chinese person is generally considered expendable by the society at large. Now they must survive the demographic hump the policy created, or suffer a brutal collapse. The Chinese chose sons over daughters, and there are now millions of Chinese men who will never find a Chinese bride, due to sheer statistics. You can imagine the difficulty that would cause any society, let alone that of the Chinese. The One Child Policy is dead by government decree, but the fear remains that the revocation may be too little too late. So, our 'ol pal Xi is attempting to take matters into his own hands. He wants to promote what he deems to be proper Chinese character and enforce some semblance of morality, while avoiding demographic disaster. Xi Jingping is currently performing a balancing act which holds direct power over a billion+ people. Think about that. A billion lives, mere statistics, putty in your hands. We make fun of Shinzo Abe for his "have babies" decrees to the Japanese people, but it's now Xi's turn to do the same. How would you feel in Xi's position? What would you do if your people were in the same situation, and you had near-absolute control over them? Here's a pretty good book I read on the Chinese, written by Ralph M. Townsend, American vice counsel to China during the 1930s. He wasn't right about everything, mortal that he was, but he was well on the money in many cases of prediction.
>>476078 >per say >subdoing Anon, please read from time to time.
>>476130 Already too late for them. The chink families may praise the CCP but they won't have kids when every rule is ironically preventing them from reaching a stable lifestyle. Then also elevating all the poor peasants who would be fucking like rabbits into a higher class so they don't want kids either certainly isn't helping.
>>476317 That happened because of PUBG years ago. When it came out a bunch of Chinese people showed up. From that point on a large % of the users were mainland Chinese. Seeing games show up is just the followup of that.
>>476059 GET FUCKED TENCENT AND EVERYONE WHO SIGNED ON WITH YOU TOO
Tencent is the largest threat the CCP faces, with a company driven to succeed and with such an amass of wealth, it is only time before they hire a private army and public affairs corp that can subversively deflect and stand off against the common CCP solider who is merely obedient and nowhere near loyal. If I were the CCP I would shut down Tencent today and ban video games for the Chinese people.
>>476319 汉字第一
>>476059 >there's been no reason given for this The reason is simple: The chinks know that entertainment is a massive cultural force today, which is precisely why they've started culling the effeminate males ages ago, and why they go against any celebrity that's starting to get a cult of personality around them. There is only one man in China that is allowed to have power, and that man is Winnie the Pooh. In other news, they may be laying the base for going on a war-footing over Taiwan. Get absolutely everything media and entertainment wise under total and absolute party control, then start pumping out stuff about how Taiwan is evil and also Chinese and you can justify a war to get it back. The reason for the war are simple: The chink economy is fake, like Evergrande collapse proved, and that hasn't finished with its ramifications yet. Their economy may well be crumbling behind the scenes, and their entire social contract is based on "CCP makes you richer, so you follow the CCP". Another destabilizing factor is their large surplus of men that will never find a woman due to the one-child policy. And what's better for getting rid of young men than war? And the ones that survive can bring back some warbrides as loot.
>>476313 Your post makes some sense. I've never disagreed with why they implemented the social credit score system or their punishments of businessess for unethecal actions. But I've always disagreed with how they've implemented it.
Wh>>476431 > I've never disagreed with why they implemented the social credit score system or their punishments of businessess for unethecal actions. Are you fucking retarded? Anyone who isn't can see how it can be abused even if it was used in good faith.

Remember that Minecraft killer Hytale from a few years back? It's trailer has over 52 mil views. It's dead in the water now. It can't be released if thats the case with Tencent since Tencent owns riot games too right? Fuck them they deserved it for delaying the game so much by being such demented fucking perfectionists and bending over to fucking china in the first place AFTER the pandemic from them was going strong too. I used to shill that game all the damn time in one of the minecraft threads
>>476636 Honestly it's just as well. Instead of being its own thing it was just making itself out to be the "cooler Minecraft". It even had the same blocky aesthetic. There's never going to be a Minecraft killer as long as every competing game that comes out just looks like Minecraft with mods.
>>476672 I guess that depends on whether Tencent has the executive power for all those games on non chinese platforms.
>>476672 I would think it is just in China. Every article mentions Tencent needs approval before being able to put apps on the appstore, which I take it is some Chinese firewall shit. Only way to see for sure is check international versions of Tencent games/apps that are for Western audiences and see if any of them have been updated within the period they aren't allowed to.

No matter how much the commies, socialist and other leftist scum try to twist reality, it will always come back to bite them in the ass. China will fall, or become an irrelevant shithole just like every socialist country before it. Just like the USSR, just like Nazi Germany, just like Venezuela. Capitalism and practicality always win in the end. They are already eating away at their own economy. Eventually it will fuck up and China will be only a grim reminder of why socialism never works.

>>476866 >Alibaba, then Evergande, now Tencent Given Evergrande is about to tank their entire economy due to its over borrowing, the Chinese government is probably cracking down on Tencent and Alibaba for over borrowing as well. Tencent has been sticking its fingers into every pie it can get a hold of; some of which like their investments in to Platinum games investment makes no real sense from a business perspective. Most people don't realize this, Alibaba isn't just an e-commerce site, they also; you guessed it, make investments in all sorts of shit. This is probably preemptive damage control to keep Alibaba and Tencent from going under at the same time Evergrande is.

>>476874 > just like Nazi Germany Well, unlike the others Germany didn't fall to its own policies, it was ransacked and mindbroken by the Allies.
>>477401 >Didn't fall to its own policies Their own policies are the reason why they started the war to begin with, and their policies were the reason why their garbage logistics lost them the war. They had shortages in everything, and blockaded themselves from the rest of the world's trade because "muh autarky" It did fall to its own policies, there was no way for them to win the war no matter what they would have done because they played the politics game very badly. Just like any other type of socialists, the Nazis were misguided romantics, and as always misguided romanticism leads to horrible things happening.
>>477407 Its funny that at the end, spain being neutral was one of the few things keeping their warmachine going because franco would buy stuff to neutral countries for them.
>>477411 They couldn't supply them oil though, and that was the thing that was lacking the most. Once again, something that wouldn't be a problem if they didn't put their economy towards military focus to begin with, and didn't refuse to trade with the rest of the world. Honestly the allies were so fucking lenient with Hitler before the war that if he was a bit less autistic and actually focused on practically developing his country instead on his pipe dreams the war wouldn't have happened. But that would require their ideology to be different in the first place. Both World Wars feel so horribly fucking meaningless and ridiculous when you look at them from current day's perspective. All it would have taken for it not to happen was just a bit of common sense, for leaders to not be narcissistic assholes, but that would be like asking for a fish to fly.
>>477427 > All it would have taken for it not to happen was just a bit of common sense, for leaders to not be narcissistic assholes, but that would be like asking for a fish to fly. That's the identity crisis the world is still dealing with to some extent. Just look at how the old world was obsessed over leaders and figures, meanwhile today's world is extremely decentralized and focussed on the individual.
>>477433 Is it really now? It's not really individualistic if it's focused to such an extent on mob rule and group identity. It doesn't really feel as if anything has changed, merely the name shifted. Leaders and nations became celebrities and ideologies and we are back with the same ideologies as in 20th centuries, another cold war and bringing back the focus on race and nationality. It feels like we haven't moved from the spot we were during WW2 at all.

His own son(product of incest btw) killed himself because of the needlessly harsh upbringing and then when Ferdinand d'Este got married he forced him to sign away his kids right to the throne, thus ensuring that if he dies so does the succession line. Why did he make him sign it? Because the woman he had those children with was not rich enough. She was from an ancient noble family but did not possess some insane inheritance and therefor was seen as "poor". Mind you at that point the Habsburgs were basically among the top 10 richest families in the world so there was literary 0 chance of ever finding a bride with an inheritance large enough to satisfy Joseph so the faggot basically nuked his own line of succession over what amounted to pennies for him.

>>476059 I suspect its a powergrab. The commies allowed private businesses to grow a bit too big, to a point where the rest of the world cares more about what Chinese megacorps will do rather than what the Chinese government does. This of course goes against their everything china stands for and so they are probably going on the offensive. Also as many anons already pointed out they might be trying to cover up how fake their whole economy is. The collapse of Evergrande proves that not only is such a collapse possible but also that it most definitively was not just Evergrande doing it. Its highly possible that government officials were not actually aware how their own economy grew and functioned and were satisfied with just bigger numbers but now realized how fake those numbers actually are. Chances are that this might a attempt at course correction.
>>478272 >She was from an ancient noble family A mere countess. Hardly an imperial match, ancient title or not. A daughter of an independent duchy would be the absolute minimum of nobility expected of a Habsburg. And maybe the fucking serbians shouldn't have murdered an imperial heir, or at least accepted the natural punishment of annexation instead of crying to the eternal Ivan.
