Jun 4th 2011 11:17AM Of course, it's easy for me to say that Blizz should just kill thier business in China and that would solve most of the problem however unrealistic that that actually is. On the one hand, I agree that they are prisoners and it really has more to do with the actions of thier penal system. The beatings won't stop if gold selling stops. On the other hand, we are talking about human beings no matter what type of people they are.
I don't see how anyone could buy gold for a game anyway. For me, the risk of getting caught is enough of a deterrence. I only have about 20,000 gold myself and that took me years to amass. I guess buying gold for some people is no different than when I buy items such as the mounts and pets. There has to be a way that blizzard can deal with it. I don't see how they can legally stay in business making money off of Blizzards game. There will always be those playets who don't care and want to go the easy route rather than work for it...unfortunately.

I shall never troll again!
Dec 12th 2009 11:22PM "However, a minority of the players, which have recently developed a very loud voice, are not pleased with the direction and development of the game; especially those that have been around the entire time the past five years. While this vocal minority have many legitimate issues, some which truly do deserve to be addressed, they risk having not only themselves but the entire system of direct designer interaction shut down over their inappropriate and abusive tactics.
Case in point is a 20+ page, 20,000 view topic on the role forums that has developed over the past day (there have also been innumerable other ones deleted). In it, the vocal minority goes on a direct yet rambling attack against Ghostcrawler and the rest of the designers for what they've done with the game. The attacks are inappropriate and a complete distraction from the real questions and concerns the community needs to have addressed."
So the minority should shut up? Give me a break. They have as much right to their opinion as anyone else. Vulgarity and profanity is one thing, but it sounds as if they are being asked not to complain at all which is weak and lame. It would appear that it has more to do with a minority post garnering so much attention in the first place. No offense, but the designers are big boys and girls the same as us. If they can't handle it, then maybe they should limit their interaction with players. It's not going to change the game or harm the players.
They do what they have to do to keep the game running, but in the end, the players also have a part in keeping the game running. At times, Blizzard seems to forget that without us, they wouldn't be here at all. Quit acting like this is something new. It's not. The majority of us ARE NOT children. Quit being their cheering section and keep it on track with what this is supposed to represent...information and exchanges for THE PLAYERS, not for Blizzard to get out their own QQ through 2nd parties.
In the end, and I know that some of them can't handle this, But we don't owe Blizzard a damn thing. Yes, WoW is a great game, that we PAY FOR. It is a mutual exchange and we both get what we want. No player should ever hold back on expressing their opinions whether it be positive or negative and have to worry about whether the designers' feelings are hurt. Get right or get out.
Dec 8th 2009 7:51PM Don't do stupid things with your account and you won't have to worry about being hacked. And yes, I'm glad you agree...greedy indeed. If Blizzard was that concerned about the security of our accounts, then the authenticator would be included in the initial software thereby securing our gaming experience...for free.
Dec 8th 2009 7:16PM Have to have an authenticator? That's complete and utter BS.
Another way for them to make people spend money. Greedy punks. Looks like another pet I won't have.
Dec 1st 2009 8:09AM I would report them and do. When it is obvious that the player is either lazy or a bot, I want them out of there as they are affecting the gameplay of everyone else trying to win the BG. If Blizzard has a problem with that or it's being abused, then they need to come up with a better solution and stop bsing with it. Get players like this out of there and stop waiting months to take action.
