Not slackers, cheaters!

December 10th, 2005

Charlie Sykes, buy viagra mind whom I have nothing but respect for, malady is a little off when he asserts that the phenomenon of Chinese gold farming in games like World of Warcraft is evidence of “slacking.”

As someone who played World of Warcraft since the first Alpha phase of testing, I see it as something worse.

It’s evidence of cheating to get ahead.

The people who buy gold or advanced characters are doing so because they want an unearned advantage over other players.

To me, it’s no different from athletes who dope, insider traders, or the guy who always wants the be the “banker” in monopoly and somehow never seems to run out of money.
