Extreme Gold Farming

There was an interesting article in The Guardian about where some of the gold that people buy comes from. Most people understand the poor conditions the farmers work in, but it appears some of them were essentially slaves. Twelve hour unpaid sessions of gold farming, more profitable than the normal physical labor that is used as punishment. The man being interviewed was beaten when he couldn't keep up with his quota, keep that in mind next time a farmer steals a node from you!


Netease reported their profits recently, a 63% growth in Q1 with a profit of $112 million. It seems WoW is doing just fine in China.
