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.
