Den politiske uro i Hong Kong, samt Blizzards bandlysning af Hearthstone-spilleren Ng 'Blitzchung' Wai Chung på grund udtrykt støtte til disse protester, taget i betragtning, så ville det ikke være mærkeligt hvis Team Hong Kong ikke ville deltage i den kommende Overwatch World Cup, men det vil de faktisk.
Holdet har udgivet en officiel meddelelse, hvor de officielt afslører, at de deltager i begivenheden.
"The past few months have been very challenging for everyone on Team Hong Kong and it has been difficult to stay focused on our Overwatch program. We have tried our best to ensure that all of our players can prepare without distraction but this is not an easy task especially with the recent news surrounding Blitzchung. After a deep discussion with our players, we believe that the chance to represent Hong Kong spirit and values on the global stage is too valuable to give up. While it could be more comfortable for us to shy away from this event, we believe it is more important now than ever to ensure that everyone sees the faces of players on our team; the faces of Hong Kong people proud of representing their community."
