And people talking about Chinese gold farmers not being able to bug us in 3...2...

I don't think the gold farmer thing has much to do with china these days. There are just as many US and EU gold farmers as there are chinese. Sucks that because of some b/s red tape though they're still not able to do wrath over there =/.

Ashetaw, most/all of the goldfarmers in the game I've encountered spoke terrible Engrish, but responded clearly with lots of Chinese when I said something Chinese in a whisper. If there's American or European goldfarmers, I haven't seen them yet. But this isn't a topic about goldfarming, this is a topic about China's legit WoW playing.
What I mean is...inevitably whenever Chinese WoW is mentioned on this site, someone starts talking about how it's a good thing they can't play because Chinese gold farmers "have gotten really bad lately" or something.

This has really gotta be hurting the WoW subscription numbers. The longer it takes for the Chinese servers to come back up, the more likely it is for the Chinese WoW players to seek out other MMOs to play since they can't play WoW easily. This has to have put a sizable dent in WoW's subscriber/population numbers. Hell, we'll probably get Cataclysm here before they get WotLK.

LOL....The players being affected by this have nothing to do with the gold farmers.

Wow, so far you're the only ones to mention that. That is a surprise tbh. Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would they have actually mentioned it if you hadn't said anything?

Regardless of whether the gold farmers themselves are Chinese, they aren't PLAYING on Chinese servers... there is no country-to-country gold transfer service. These guys have US/EU accounts. They are farming mats on YOUR server. This doesn't affect them at all.

@ WarlockSo Blizzard just isn't allowed to start Chinese servers but buying an US or EU version of WoW would be legal?then again such dodgy companies would probably take the risk and have a large crate of WoW shipped in.

@Elmo - Why not? They are already doing something illegal. The Chinese Government is not going to step in, they don't care. They only care about "OMG WESTERN INFLUENCE! KILL IT NOW OR THE PEOPLE MIGHT NOT OBEY US WITHOUT QUESTION!!"

Chinese farmers don't farm on chinese version of wow. . . .how can they transfer their money? they play on EU or American WOW.Besides more gold is sold to people that was stolen from other players, read WOW's post on gold sellers/buyers. (And yes it is true, you buy 5K gold they try to steal account info or get you to dl something then they steal the money back from you and sell that plus the money they got from selling your gear.)
