So it's ok because their economy sucks balls? $1800 a year anywhere isn't going to get you very far in life, even in communist China. I love the hearsay you use to justify this shit, not to mention that you have no qualms with working 12 hours a day. I bet you've never had a full time job in your fuckin' life, and here you are saying it's ok to work some poor dude 12 hours a day because he's in a less economically powerful region...
"No, no, guys... listen! In China $1800 a year is like $60,000 here in the states! You can buy your 1200 square foot home, 2 SUVs, and pay off your school loans with that kinda cash over there! I swear! I saw it on TV!"
But fuck all those facts... this shit still ruins the game world, fucks the economy and such. All so some prick who works some poor chinese dudes 12 hours a day while he lives like a fuckin king ($60,000 in China is well above the mean income, no doubt there). Sure, it's rich suburban dipshits/spoiled assholes that support this crap, and all the better if they lose their money... but that still doesn't justify the hours/pay the actual workers are getting..
While I personally do not condone nor like this type of farming in MMORPGs, your argument is wrong. Do not bring in your American ethnocentric biases into the picture here. These so-called farmers probably WOULD be putting in 12 hours a day (and more likely 14-16 hours a day). But instead of working in a relatively comfy job in front of a computer, they might be toiling in the rice paddies under the hot sun. Now which is the more prefereably job?
Whether this guy puts in 12 hours a day farming phat lest in a MMORPG or farming actual cotton, it is a job that keeps him employed and feeds his family.
Again, I do not like this type of practice in MMORPGs, or any other computer game. But do not bring in your ethnocentric bias that since it is not okay in the US, it is not okay anywhere else in the world. Farming for lewt or farming for cotton - they will have to put in brutal hours. If I were in his shoes, I would farm for lewt as well.You cannot make anything fool-proof. The fools are too inventive
