A lot of gold farming occurs overseas. I don't understand why Blizzard doesn't regionalize the servers; so only US IPs can connect to US servers. EU IPs to EU servers. Chinese IPs to Chinese servers, etc.I understand very well how such protections could be countered, but anything that makes it more difficult for the gold farmers the better.In the end the only way to stop the gold farmers is to make the cost of business > revenue gained. That means people also need to stop buying from them. You can easily make several hundred gold a day with a single lvl 70 now; there is no need to ruin the fun for everyone but supporting gold farmers.

Because people travel, relocate, or even roll on European servers to play with European friends. How would you like to be banned from your account because your company moves you to their England branch?

Blizz made it easier to farm gold while not making it any easier to farm for mats (especially gems and enchanting mats). The result? Huge inflation on everything except for NPC sold goods in player economies, forcing players to either do an hours worth of dailies to keep up, or (you guessed it) buy gold.

actually wowtard, inflation causes the value of the gold the spammers hold to go down, and thereby makes it less profitable for them to do business.Also, these changes came in with a shift from gold to other measures of work being used to acquire gear- badge loot, for example. Now most of the crafted epics that go for thousands of gold can be replaced by something better for less work than farming the gold would have been. These days most people only use gold for sinks like flying skill and bags.
