Dec 17th 2008 8:37PM My gosh. Looks like I should try turning some mods off for a change.
Dec 17th 2008 7:27PM What UI is that in the screenshot? I recognise Sexymap, but the rest elude me.
Dec 16th 2008 3:29PM Why are you complaining about being given time estimates for server availability? How is this in any way connected to patch release dates? Why are tears mixing with my milk?
Dec 15th 2008 10:36PM KKK allusions aren't really all that funny in their own right.
Dec 10th 2008 7:21PM That's a fine meal of words you've spilled out there. Ready to eat?
Dec 3rd 2008 4:58PM Although there's been a lot of "China has no intellectual property laws" banter thrown about like they're some sort of backwater, the reality is China's stance on patent law and intellectual property lean more towards aggressive competition, rather than a lack of law entirely. In my opinion they're a lot better.
Copyright laws there however are more or less the same in China as they are everywhere else in the world. RO have plenty of recourse available to them. Having seen all the WoW-like material I'm still leaning towards the "cute allusion" conclusion though.

Dec 2nd 2008 4:44PM I don't see a problem here with the content shown. A lot of their work is obviously heavily inspired by other games but they've gone to the trouble of redrawing and altering it. As for icons, they're all pretty generic.
WoW is HUGE. It contains tens of thousands of allusions and references to other games and entertainment. It seems fair to have a few allusions to it in other games.
As for the other content borrowed from other games, you'd have to see it to decide. Even then you'd want to see it in context.
Nov 12th 2008 5:42PM That's right :D I'll have to wait 40 levels though.
Nov 12th 2008 8:28AM I filled my bag with epic gear and took a screenshot. I'm also sort of hoping it bugs out somehow and some of it is still left when the realms are back up. :)
