It pains me to call TheFeed writer Jake Gaskill wrong, but he is wrong, wrong, wrong–and I’m not just talking about his moral failings. Jake was wrong when he told you China had official banned gold-farming in MMOs.
In fact, according to Blues News, the new Chinese law states that it is illegal to trade virtual money for real goods. Trading fake money for real things is the exact opposite of gold farming. The law exists to keep Chinese people from using PayPal like services to gamble and/or purchase real things. You can still pay actual money for fake gold, if you’re a Chinese idiot or something.
Oh, and if you’re running a sweatshop filled with 12 year-old Chinese kids grinding WoW gold for 56 hours a day, your business is safe.
Is is too soon to rejoice?
Waiting with bated breath here.
