I play WOW in China since one year and a half. I really enjoyed the game a lot but there is still a point i can't cope with: THE9 thinks we are stupid fucks... I don't want to go on with a huge rant so i will let a simple example speak for me:

- if you type www.worldofwarcraft.com (US site), in the news section for today, you see: patch 2.0.3 is out, the dark portal is opening with demonic invasion, the expansion will be realesed at midnight on 16th of january with special events everywhere...

- if you type www.wowchina.com (chinese site), in the news section you have 5 ugly images to use on your desktop about christmass in WOW. Those images are not new, they are a ripoff from last year Xmass screenshot competition on the US website.

- if you type the9 and you check the news section, you will see some old news from april telling that they aquired licenses for guildwars and hellgate.

I follow this problem closely and i know the9 and blizzard are discussing the matter since more than a year now. It looks very simple to me. Blizzard didn't have the necessary infrastructure and most importantly didn't had the necessary guanxi to run WOW by themselves in China. The9 took the opportunity and strongly buttfucked blizzard for 2 years now. After having gathered enough cashflow to lauch other games, the9 is letting blizzard wait as much as possible because they still make a lot of money.

The result is that we, players are not informed at all. The rest of the world have beend given patches 2.0.0 2.0.1 2.0.2 2.0.3. They are now ready to enter the outlands and enjoy the extension while we are still waiting any content patch since more than half a year.

The wrost in all that is that the official website of wow in china don't make any reference to the extension. It's like it doesn't even exists...

I am seriously thinking about putting my chars on hold and giving up wow until i get some news from the9 or blizzard...

Fuck the9, you ruined the fun of a community of players of nearly 7 millions people. And now we see that many people are already living the game and wow china death is a short term matter now...

Yes, that's true that Blizzard choosed The9 to support them to launch WoW in China because they didn't have the necessary ressources.
And about the new patch it's simply a problem of money...How much will cost the extension, how much will cost a new card for the extension and if The9 and Blizzard will still be associated with the extension deployment...That's why it's taking so long for us to have the new patch (2.0.1....etc)
And Blizzard must make his choice quickly because regarding to the article that you sent deadanus chinese people are beginning to be kind of bored with WoW...
And during 2006 there were many problems which caused some people in the game to boycott the game for several days or weeks...
So The9 and Blizzard are not exactly in very good terms :s !

the extension is waited by many people but all those problems will slow its apparition in China...

Still we hope it will come soon...

i am also unfortunatly bored by the game. There is only 1 instance left unfinished in our server and we go there only 2 or 3 nights a week. The rest of the time i play a PVP MS to wait but i know many players have already quit...

This nonsense will bring down a wonderfull community of players.

Chinese wowers, on the PVE side, are so much more advanced than US or EU players and it will be a shame to cut them out just for a stupid money matter Sad

I wanna go through the dark portal, i wanna be on the first illidan kill on my server, i want to hit sinister strikes for 2K :'(

and you most probably will.... yet the true warrior you are, you must find within yourself my friend. and dedication comes through patience....

in other words, i just wrote a shitload of crap!

but everyone who does business in china knows this is the way it goes here. we WILL get it later, but i am about VERY VERY sure we'll get it because both sides (no matter how much, deadanus) DO make money out of wow in china. as long as they dont do losses, they DO make money.
and they have market share which is more important for future deployments of games.
they will ultimately release it.
later than US? sure.
do we need patches 2.0x? no.... we need burning crusade. only thing i care about. i dont care if i get prepatched or get the whole shit in one go. i just want TBC.
they will extend negotiations for as long as they can because each side wants to max out profits.
it's 9C fault as much as friggin blizzards fault for not investing in an INCREDIBLY lucrative market like china themselves and put up a few servers.

so calm down, they didn't say yes but they didn't say NO yet. which means its still in talks. if they wouldn't want, they would have said no by now.

c ya all soon.... ^^

all servers were down tonight for 1H+ and i missed my sure ZU for NAXX (6/7DZ). That was my only raid day for this week...

So, as i was sayin,
FUCK THE9, I HOPE THOSE INCOMPETENT CORUPTED LAZY MOTHER FUCKERS DIE IN HELL .....

On a less flammy part, my wife read an article dated from today on www.tom.com were the boss the9 stated that he is doing his beat and TBC should be online for 1st of may in china...

Nothing official on any other website though.

Any gamers can have different kind of fun in a game. The wonder of WOW is that it can appeal to many types of gamers.

My fun in online gaming is in competition. I enjoy the fight to be the best. In this process, it hapens that we are close to "finish" WOW. By finish i mean killing all the bosses of the game.

I know that the raid i am in will eventually kill Kel Thuzad, the final boss of Naxxramas, the highest instance before burning crusade. After that, there will be not much left to enjoy in the game for me.

I am angry because a dumb company ripped off another company that i like. The result is that my fun is ruined, hence, the rent.

The more you will visit gaming forums, the more you will see people complaining, thats the other occupation of a gamer... When we dont pwn noobs, we flame each other in order to compare our e-peens or we complain about the current game we are playing...
