Yeah this is Nations Cup. That's why the Taiwan flag is being shown.
So because many countries accept chinese blackmail and don't recognize Taiwan for money reasons, normal people should also follow that logic? How about being a decent human being, grow a backbone and start showing and recognizing Taiwan everywhere no matter if winnie the pooh likes it or not.The Taiwan question is very complicated and the tournament organizers should recognize that there could be issues for the Chinese players regarding Taiwan, because their government enforce aggressively their stance domestically.
I tested this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/block-image/pehaalcefcjfccdpbckoablngfkfgfgj/related?hl=deFor Liquipedia there won't be any changes. So unless there is some sort of browser plugin that automatically detects and changes flags, then it's probably better for him/them to not show Liquipedia or AoEZone on stream.
Other things like overlays or in case China A/B face a Taiwanese team, I think that is their responsibility to just be careful if it has an affect on their stream and income.
That's probably the best I can recommend, as there is no enforment on showing any flags on stream.
I don't think vivi would use Google Chrome, but, yes, I can imagine something like that existing for some browsers that are used in China too.I tested this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/block-image/pehaalcefcjfccdpbckoablngfkfgfgj/related?hl=de
It does block ALL images, but that is the best I can find for the moment. Works well tbh.

But that is exactly how most countries are born. Finland was first part of Sweden and later part of Russia until finally declared independent and got support from other countries (incl. Russia) and that was it. USA was part of Britain until they fought and got their indepedency. Mexico was part of Spain until Mexican war of independence.Tell me that you know nothing about geopolitics without saying it! "taiwan is a country"....
Such topic isn't talking about politics but actually about history and how taiwan was established and why it got insta support and investors from those countries that wanted to show the world that the communism was the big evil, if you take a book or two about such subject you will find out why you can't call it a country or pretend it to be a free land as it has always been part of china, united states or their allies can't just declare the freedom of certain territory that belongs to another country just because they support it.
Taiwan situation is different. Do you know the name of the country Taiwan (used on Taiwan)? It's Republic of China. Both countries consider themselves the "real" China. So it's not so much about independence as about who is the real China country.But that is exactly how most countries are born.
