Getting Gold Farmers out of WoW

« previous entry | next entry »

I had an odd idea of how to get chinese gold farmers out of the north american edition of world of warcraft.

Code up some wiki-like software that works via the in game whisper or chat system and fill it with pro-democracy/anti-chinese state content. Then the chinese firewall will block them.

Whispering certain unapproved chinese terms to farmers who are spamming might also get them blocked by the chinese firewall, and probably be easier to do.

So does anyone know some forbidden words that could be easily kept at the ready?

"Free Tibet!" would be the obvious one. :P

Except then the Chinese government would bitch at Blizzard and threaten to cut them off entirely if they didn't start banning people for expressing anti-Chinese sentiment. And then it would become a bannable offense because Blizzard can't afford to lose the Chinese market, and China will have leveraged their economic power to once again silence criticism of their government!

Or something. c.c

But there are Chinese WoW servers that the Chinese people are supposed to be playing on. Its mostly the gold farmers who are playing the north american version for money, neither blizzard or the chinese party particularly want them on the NA servers.

That's true, but I wouldn't put it past them to use it as an opportunity for political gain.

Don't mind me, really, I'm just playing devil's advocate. c.c

"Communism sucks"?
"Taiwan Owns China"?
"Long Live Chiang Kai-shek"?
"Free Hong Kong Again"?

Oooh, "Never Forget Tianamen Square", or however you spell that name.
