    World Of Warcraft Set To Be Available In China Again


    Well it looks like a huge crisis has been averted and cheap gold will once again flow in the economy of WoW. Though there is one stipulation that will keep new users from joining the realms at this point, existing players will once again get their nerd on.

    So hereís what happened. As you know, World of Warcraft has been offline in China for about six weeks now because Blizzard switched local operators (games made by foreign companies need to be run by local operators in China), and the new operator had a tough time convincing authorities at the Ministry of Culture that the game was good to go. Everything is now great, but thereís a few catches.

    Only existing World of Warcraft players will be allowed to re-up (for now). And even then, Blizzard and NetEase, the new local operator, will have to make some sort of content modification. What content? Who knows. I donít recall seeing the Orcs or Humans proclaim their love for Taiwan or anything.
    What do you think would happen if we required overseas organizations doing business in the States to be run by US operators? China. Gotta love the iron fist (as they cram it up the world's ass).

    I read somewhere else (maybe [H]) that Microsoft was offering Office to the Chinese for $29, because it was pirated so much. That is complete horse shit.

    China sucks. If I owned a manufacturing business I'd never purchase anything from those bastards.

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    that's stupid as shit, what does that "censorship" really change? Unless they omit blood totally, replace weapons with stuffed animals, and cause "attacks" to heal the other person.

    I would guess that the blatant censorship of the monsters is a cover for the true censorship of the game.
