I've been in Beijing for about a month. After seeking help here I was able to play on the US server by changing the realmlist from "cn6..." to "us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com".
This enabled me to play, however my entire interface was in Chinese.
Since 2.4 went live in America/Australia, I have been unable to get into the game doing this. I have since got a friend back in Australia to log on and he has patched my version at home to 2.4 but still no love.
Any ideas, reasoning why this is occuring? Are the days of changing the realmlist in the net cafe gone?
* I do not have my own pc or version of the game and I return home in 1 month so am not interested in rerolling on Chinese server**
