World of Warcraft: U.S. Site Also Posts Gold Farming Stance

Posted Mon, Feb 25, 2008 by Aelryn

"Guys, stop it. Guys! Guys? Hey, come on..."

Following the recent statement posted at the European World of Warcraft community site which outlined Blizzard's stance on gold-farming and related activities, the U.S. site has placed a similar statement on their community page.

The negative effects these companies create depend directly on people using their services. Without them, the companies have no way to continue their unethical actions. Furthermore, it's important to keep in mind that players are responsible for what happens with the account they play on. Selling gold for real money and having characters power-leveled are violations of our Terms of Use and End User License Agreement, and we regularly take corrective action when we find that these services have been used. We hope the information presented here is helpful to anyone considering buying gold or using a power-leveling service; these are just a few reasons that those services can negatively impact World of Warcraft and other games, and we strongly encourage players not to support the companies that offer them.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
