    Sounds like a fail game then.

    Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.

    The truly amazing thing is that they chose to rip off the worst PvP map.

    Seriously, Skyhammer is a fuckdump.

    Tencent just baught out 29% of funcom becoming largest holder. Expect more of this. They also are bypassing many nations economically. So prepare to be blocked from society on your high-tech social credit you all support through buying tech not made in USA.
    You will all reap what you sow soon. No go forth and keep paying for those apps, games, and iPhones. Built you own Babylon.

    I mean. Hurrhurr Russians.

    Looking at that icon comparison it would seem like they actually stole assets, not just ripped off the styles or ideas/design. Or they got some talented artists willing to go through a lot of hard work to make exact copies.. o.O

    Was it so hard to place the items in another configuration even if you straight out rip them off?

    While the only difference is in the spelling, China is a Communist country, not sure about Russia these days, though they 'used' to also be a Communist country, fascism is more associated with European countries historically. :/

    Not just these but they are using WoW sound effects. Like literally the same skill, mob and interface sound effects. When I first saw Cryy playing this game I can't believe what I heard tbh.The boars, spiders, wolfs, firebolt, eating food sound effects all of them and more are %100 stolen from WoW. Not only the beginning of the game but I see some people fighting %100 knock off end games bosses which are literally stolen from WoW. It's disgusting knowing they can easily get away with this shit just because they are a Chinese company...

    To be completely accurate, modern Russia is more akin to Oligarchy while modern China is like Technocratic Socio-Capitalism.

    While at it, Communism didn't even exist and I'm not certain whether it is attainable to begin with. Socialism was rampant after WW2 though.

    And western companies donate their profits to the homeless and the poor... riiiight.

    WOW Is a ripoff of every other mmo before it, yet no one wasted a breath to scream on forums about it.
    Fortnite is a ripoff of pubg yet no one screams that it should be shut down.

    Its China. Copyright laws work differently there (aka they dont exist in China). Laws are only good if governments are willing to enforce them. The worst that will happen to the company behind this is that they just wont be able to have the game in other regions unless things are changed, just like that mobile game League of Angels had to do (they straight up stole FFXIV's 1.0 opening cinematic and used it as their own).

    Honestly, is anyone surprised?

    A western MMO takes so long to make apparently, and every month some cheesy eastern MMO, with loli and pedophile looking characters, have a sleazy ad on this website.

    What else did you think they were doing? Burning the midnight oil? Or enjoying the five fingered discount? 

    They just regurgitate bullshit due to theft, give a lame name, sell it, and then rinse and repeat. Just look at what is advertised on this site.

    The moment I killed a wolf, a boar and a bear and heard the exact same sounds from WoW that I've been playing for 15+ years topped next to the starter zone music sounding like someone took the music from Elwynn Forest and just changed a few notes to make it "seem" different, I uninstalled with haste.  Not surprised at the audacity, it is China of course, they have no morals when it comes to art or business..or life in general, lol.  But I refuse to give them the time of day or padding for their numbers.

    Actually copyright laws in china works the same like the rest of the world, but you can't make people follow it and also it is very costly to disprove that it is a copy with sufficient alterations. Enforcing copyright on 1.4 billions people is harder than to enforce it on say 40 million people. but lets say blizzard told tencent "hey look this company makes a copy of our games and it's going to hurt profitability, so we might give you less money" then tencent could hire lawyers and sue for copyright infringement on behalf of blizzard since they own a portion of blizzard. You can sue as a foreign company but the process will take longer because when you sue you better have proves ready otherwise they will just dismiss the case outright, but for court to reach a decision it won't take longer than 30 days. They will comply with the copyright laws, but if the company does not sue of course the chinese government won't care. I've sued people in china for non payment it only takes 1 week after the court judgement before they churn out the money, where when I did not sue, the person that owes me money drag it along up to like 6 months citing bad business etc etc. And when you sue chinese company you sue them in china, don't sue them in the states, chinese government will ignore judgement passed outside china. And also hire chinese law firm, don't use us law firm.

    You seem to not be able to tell the difference between copying ideas and reworking them to suit your purpose and outright copying of music, sounds, art assets and plopping them down in a shit game.

    One of those is perfectly OK in all art forms where what came before influences what comes after and the other one is theft.

    There are many, many cases of copyright enforcement in China being very lax on violations against foreign companies - especially those without an active presence in China - and not so lax enforcement for violations against other Chinese IPs.

    There are even cases where the very same claim was ignored but got some life after Tencent bought the complainant's business... just ask Riot about that.
