WoW Insider interview: You Play or We Pay founders {WoW}

Jan 16th 2009 12:01PM Gold sellers will be making RL money without botting.

I guess we could all consider a small-turnover speculative business based upon Blizzard's own realm migration announcements. Do they accept euros?

Jan 16th 2009 11:13AM Expat I agree, although I think you're being a bit hard on the average WoW player.

One thing that bugs me about this is that the WoW Terms of Use clearly states several times that in accepting the terms, you're accepting that the realms can be up or down, busy or quiet; all at Blizzard's whim.

In that sense, it differs from aforementioned health insurance policies.

I've not managed to find it yet but I've little doubt that Blizzard will also frown upon commercial gain arising directly from data mining their servers.

Lastly, I have questions as to how the site's designers will validate any claims without violation of both theirs and their clients' EULA.

Jan 16th 2009 10:01AM At first, given the world's markets, I thought that the fellas had come up with the world's first virtual credit default swap.

Then I thought about the data mining that had been done and that the clever lads have actually gone out and developed a set of actuarial tables for wow.

The scaling does make it similar to normal insurance in some respects but I cannot understand why WowInsider is involving itself in tacit approval of what is a fairly flaky idea.
