Blizzard says “Don’t Buy Gold”

Buying gold makes baby murlocs cry.

So said Blizzard today on the US World of Warcraft site.

And if that isn’t enough to dissuade you, they have also put up a page listing out the issues that come up that are directly funded by buying gold, some of which affect every player in the game.

    Yeah, I’m sure they did that on purpose.

    Ask anybody who has run google ads on their site how successful they generally are at filtering out gold ads.

    I think it is goofy to run ads on their forums, but they probably saw SOE doing it on all their sites, where the ads sometimes showed competing products, and copied it because Blizzard copies everything, right?

    The ads were, I have no doubt, some corporate mandate that the team at Blizzard has to live with, not something they chose.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
