International lawsuit. This is going to get very very messy. As in 40-15 AV messy.

You guys are continuing to spread BAD journalism by entertaining the notion that there was anything to this "World of Fight." It was only a lost-in-translation teaser for the9 bringing Warhammer Online to China. That's all. And that's been pretty much confirmed by other news sources. Yet WoW.com continues to mislead readers that its some WOW ripoff, and this is at least the third time.Do you work. Check your facts. Use your sources.

Indeed Josh. Warhammer Online was famous for bringing the exciting worlds of King of Fighters and Street Fighter to the Warhammer Mythos (See: http://www.wofchina.com/).Maybe YOU should check you facts, rather than using internet speculation that was all based on the use of a Chaos Portal behind the initial splash as "proof".

Seriously though, this whole WoF thing is just plain weird. Last time I looked it had screenshots from warhammer online, now it just shows a montage of street fighter characters? What the hell are they trying to pull.....

Ten gold says that they're pursuing this because some exec at the9 feels he's "lost face."They were contracted to provide and deliver servers in China capable of current content. They failed to do this in a timely manner, such that their own player base was eroding and defecting to Taiwanese servers. When a company is unable to satisfy their contractual obligations, both to their partners and their customers, they are doomed. World of Fight is a side issue.The crux is potentially how Blizz communicated their choice to not renew the contract to the9, and what subtext executives at the9 perceived; then take into account how those same executives perceived how Blizz's choice affected how they were viewed by their peers.Asian culture is asian.
