Thousands of WoW players are finding themselves without a pass to the kingdom today.
by Kathleen Sanders
June 12, 2006 - Today Blizzard made known throughout the kingdom of its monstrous multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft that gold farming, the practice of paying people in third-world countries to spend all day gathering virtual gold and then selling it to players, is not something it will tolerate.
Gold farming is a hot-button issue and fans of WoW fall on two sides of the debate. The game is designed in such a way to prevent gross inflation or the dilution of economy. So, mostly this is annoying for people who enjoy player-versus-player combat to have to put up with noobs who bought their expensive armor rather than earning it the "legitimate" way. Where do you fall in this debate? Why not tell us in our forums?
