Good luck solving this !@#$show, Blizzard.
I understand the Chinese players trying to take matters into their own hands because WoW is a massive timesink. However, I hope they know that NetEase can easily undo all of that.
World of Warcraft being a catalyst for change in the PRC would be absolutely bonkers.
I thought most of them play on a VPN to bypass a lot of the restrictions or is that just general internet usage? I imagine gaming on a VPN would be shockingly laggy
I mean... so long as they are locked there.
And here I thought the toxicity on US/EU servers was bad.
Blizzars said.. Damn.. if we cancel NetEase's contract and open up global servers.. We can charge for every server transfer..WIN!
On a more serious note.. Doesn't China make it illegal to play more than a certain number of hours.. Not sure about all the info, I just remember reading it. If so.. how will they monitor it with a China based Producer.
How about Blizzard make ACTUAL global servers. Having to start all over again from SCRATCH if you want to play with internet friends is just plain dumb. It's not 2004 anymore, stopping people from playing with friends because you don't have proper global interconnected servers is stupid.
Imagine them came into NA, mass reporting people who chat via English, participate in all kinds of toxic behaviors in the hopes of taking over the server. Yea, that's the absurdity SOME of them processes.
so taiwan, korea and china server merge maybe not just china added maybe? Missing any other asia servers?
Interesting enough, this is basically another case of "real life study inside the game" similiar to the Hakkar plague back than, but this time it's about people who have to move into a foreign country because of a war (and sadly enough, behaviour that could happen if there is no one to keep "bad" people in check).
Well most of them indeed show no bit of RESPECT. —— Me, a Chinese player who played for over 10 years on the TW server.
I feel really bad for the players on those servers who can't just enjoy the game right now due to this sort of disruption. It's seemingly impossible to escape the issues of real life even for short periods of time anymore.
