My main confusion was over their selling system. Why have 600 "scores" as opposed to simply like 60 hours of play time? It seems like a backwards way to do it all to me.

I also find it ironic that the Chinese don't like gold farming Not that I'm biased, just statistically most people that are farming gold for selling are Chinese. I wonder if this will drop the amount of farmers on the US/EU servers?

I look forward to hearing if WoW unthrones Legend2 from China.

This isn't an entirely informed opinion but...

Blizzard isn't the one releasing the game, so it's not Blizzard's price scheme. A Chinese company is simply porting Blizzard's code with very few changes. Also note that China isn't like the west, it's not a capitalist society, so the pricing on everything will be a little different. Also note that China is big on piracy, as they do not comply with US Copyright, so most software is either pirated, or has to be available for cheap to get people to pay for it. I also gather that ALL MMORPGs in China use a "point per hour" system of play, so you're essentially purchasing time to spend on the server, and that's it.

If you're complaining about the price scheme that we pay for, perhaps you should see what exactly the economic situation surrounding MMORPGs in China. I don't think $50 for a game (which is the going price for almost ANY computer game) is that much to get in a tiff about, comparing our online gaming with China's seems to be apples to oranges.
