Hi, Im an expat working in Nanjing. Been playing on my US server a bit but got really frustrated this morning with my 26000 lag rate and the disconnects and voila, ended up here.

I didnt really understand the part about buying a newspaper and getting a reload card. Whats a reload card anyway?

Can I use my current version of installed WOW or would I still need to buy and start a chinese copy?

Anyway, just wanted to say hi before im off to work.

keep your US wow. There is a very simple and quick way to play WoW on a chinese server, still using your Us version.
Leaqrn chinese though; WoW is nonetheless a social game, and not being able to communicate will alienate you somehow. Simply depends on how deep you wish to get in the game anyways. But, learn chinese asap. It'll help for the game and IRL as well.

the "card thing" is related to the payment. here in china, wow works like a prepaid mobile phone. you get a card, scratch off a number (you can also buy a number online, so you dont need to move your lazy bum at all. it's what i do), you hack in that number on a website, and BAM, you get another 66hours of gameplay... so yes, you'll need cards. these same cards will get you CD-keys as well. Like a prepaid phone, you only pay for what you play. meaning if you charge 66h into your account, and you play 2 hours, then dont touch your toon for 4 months, after 4 months it'll still be there, ready to be played for another 62hours. each recharge is valid for 1 year. they do stack.

check the forums for how to gte a valid cd-key and where / how to get a card. if you cant find it or you are somehow not sure, pm somebody or me, and somebody or me might help you out with it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Well like Naklin said, both ways are possible; personally i didnt bother with anything and install chinese version, so there are nothing to setup about the servers, the languages and so on...

If you come on our server, we can guild you and you find expats, non expats and chinese ppl, we all speak english, it may help not to feel too alone Very Happy

Since we're all Alliance here, I thought that I'd make sure you'd seen this: http://www.blizzard.com/wow/screenshot.aspx?ImageIndex=128&Set=64

And of course, Guo Nian Hao!!!
