Hey guys,

just found this article in one of my german community forums....too sad, really! Sad

Hope the can finally adapt and make it on third try....

Quote :
Industry sources are claiming that Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion pack to the 3D MMORPG World of Warcraft (WoW), has failed to obtain a publication license from relevant Chinese regulatory bodies for a second time. WoW's Chinese operator, The9 (Nasdaq: NCTY), submitted an updated copy of the expansion pack to China's regulatory body shortly after the Chinese New Year, removing specific content such as "Death Knights" from the game to help ensure it would pass approval, but it was once again rejected. Even though The9 had removed some potentially objectionable content, over 10 additional items were listed as reasons for failing the approval process.

Blizzard recently removed a link to the Chinese version of the game from its official WoW website.

its a shame...i cant see them passing it any time soon. If they have knocked it back twice im guessing they have another agenda. Most likely battling the increasing number of hrs young chinese spend on the internet.

to be honest...i wouldt miss DK's too much.

Too imbalanced still and you see them EVERYWHERE. Shattrath has become a second undercity Very Happy

On my realm they hardly find a guild anymore cus they are simply too many.

But sure it could be a good addition to the game, once blizz finds a balance....

hope the best for you guys Smile
