While Blizzard began cracking down hard on RMT (real money trading), some industry insider held that it is inevitable and reasonable for virtual item trading business to come into being and grow with the time. However, what about the existence of private servers? Recently, an online game called H3 announced that it will allow people to set up and run private servers.

So, how do you think of their decision?
A. I welcome the decision, cauz players will have more choices.
B. It really doesn't matter to me. As long as the game quality won't be undermined.
C. I'm totally against the decision. It will do harm to game balance.
  


Taewool Entertainment, known for its martial arts MMORPG Lord of Hero, has recently unveiled its new MMORPG H3 to the public. It released the trial version of H3 in Seoul, Korea on March 11th.

It is said that H3 will enter the closed beta phase in Korea this April and move into open beta simultaneously in Korea and China this July.

As a dungeon-centric action RPG, H3 is based on such classical Chinese novels as Journey to the West, The History of the Three Kingdoms, The Legend of Deification, Magic Lotus Lantern, Tale of the White Snake, Legend of the Sui and Tang Heroes, etc.

H3 is unique for its business model. Simply, it allows people to set up and run private servers. Private server owners can adjust maps, item drop rate and the arrangement of NPCs. After paying a certain amount of money to the official for renting servers, they can set up and run servers as they wish. They can run the game on a subscription-based model or item selling model. It is initially planned that the profits generated from the private servers will be split equally between the official and the private server owner. And the official will be responsible for settling the payment.

a great article. your and my experience does not have much differences and i also like enjoying the game's sorroundings and doing quest with a group of people but having too much botters and cheaters really destroys my gaming experience.

Aion, as Beautiful as Before, Is Different to Me Now



Personally, I found Final fantasy XI to be a big let down. The pace of the game is so tedious. Being a big fan of the whole series on consoles- i expected quite a lot. However, Perhaps FFXIV may be different. F2P sounds good however a lot of riff raff usual entail with such things.

FF XIV Follow-up Report: F2P is not an Impossible Dream



Sad....Is she that godly at CS?? I doubth it. Quiting school bad move. "models for a friend" = Doing Xrated things and degrating your self. Notice it's not a professional company. I mean honestly, if you can't even finish the basics which is (1st-12th grade) and graduate.... How much or a moron can you be??.... Her looks will fade, her hands will develop artritis and she will either get pregnant or catch an STD and end up working a dead end shitty job living with her parents. But this is after the whole CS thing blows up in her face.
