...But make sure you have plenty of space on your hard drive, because Modern Warfare is pretty demanding in one specific area – the game is an eye-watering 175GB download.

That is a bit nuts, is everything they're storing uncompressed?, is it an anti-piracy tactic?, who knows.

4K assets must use a lot of storage as well

After Hearthstone player’s ban, Blizzard is in hot water with lawmakers
‘Blizzard shows it is willing to humiliate itself to please the Chinese Communist Party,’ Sen. Ron Wyden said

Over the weekend, Blizzard Entertainment banned a Hearthstone player from participating in tournaments after he voiced support for the Hong Kong protesters. Now, US senators are criticizing the game’s publisher for its move.

[edit] sounds like it might be a bug or due to a higher volume of cancellations?

Blizzard relaxes punishment on pro-Hong Kong Hearthstone player
...
'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. 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.

'For second part about the suspension, Blizzard had changed their suspension on me from a year to six months. Once again, I appreciate for their reconsideration on this. To be honest, I think six months is still quite a lot to me. But I also being told that I can continue to compete in the hearthstone pro circuit which they mean the grandmaster tournament.
