Their initial response might have been weak, but they have at least realised that there core market (the US) was about to turn on them massively.

Blizzard on the other hand will, based on past experiences, continue blythly on, lose massive amounts of support from the West, and then in a couple of years get kicked out of China when China shuts its markets to support local developers.
