China officially bans gold farming
China’s government has officially banned gold farming.
According to InformationWeek, the ruling will affect “more than 300 million Internet users in China,” theoretically stemming a trade worth nearly $150 million per year.
According to a 2008 survey by the University of Manchester’s Richard Heeks, between 80 and 85 percent of gold farmers are based in China.
