    Call it racism, but until y'all show me that the majority of gold farmers and virtual sweatshops are in the area of east Asia, i will stand by this. Blizzard is making a big market open. China, is a big country. But how many people in China who own computers will play World of Warcraft and not gold farm. Most of the population of China is peasant farmers, who definitely won't have computers, and even if they did, there would be no internet access.

    China had 220 million broadband users by the end of 2007. Top broadband countries in 2007: China, USA, Japan, Germany. So they have plenty of internets.

    Ummm, do any of you realize that the chinese people that play the localized chinese version of WoW are not the gold farmers that we see on our American/European/Oceanic servers? Well, maybe when they are on their time off. Not that this is going to affect the amount of gold farmers on our servers. But, I just thought it would be nice to mention.

    Once you go go whack, you'll never go back.

    What is this "whack", you say? Check out the links!

    Cut the crap.  Gold farmed in the localised version of WoW in china will not be sold in USA or Europe.  They stay in the Chinese servers.  Unless you play in the Chinese servers, in which case you should welcome the expansion.

    I think a good number of chinese farmers play on the US servers... its a good market, LOTS of americans play wow. Theyd be cutting out a significant portion of income if they just stuck to China.

    So either the gold farmers from china are playing on US-wow, or there are some American farmers that have suck-tacular grammar/spelling.



    Also please look up the real meaning of racism before using the word. Thanks.
