World of Warcraft Gold Merchants Getting Shut Down

World of Warcraft Gold Merchants Getting Shut Down

Blizzard has been trying to combat the Gold Trade in World of Warcraft for some time, and today they just got a big ally in the fight. Teaming with PayPal to stop sellers from selling “intellectual properties” of Blizzard via the PayPal service. Blizzard urged PayPal to issue a Cease and Desist order to the sellers or risk being unable to use the service any longer. This should curb a large majority of the gold sellers as PayPal is far and away the largest online payment processor.To get more news about safely buy wow gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

Perhaps this means I will no longer get the strange whisper messages where people pretend to be engaging you in coverstation before they so conspicuoulsy start mentioning gold and that they know so and so has a great deal. Hooray Blizzard.
IT-centric Splunk’s .conf is not generally an event we cover here on MOP, but the .conf20 edition held back in October had a presentation of note for us. Blizzard Senior Security Engineer Shawn Routhier gave a presentation on World of Warcraft’s economy – specifically, a data-minded look at trade and gold-making in the MMORPG, which happens to include several interesting tidbits about the MMO you might not have known.

Notably, Routhier’s talk suggests that the game sees over 10M “pseudo-financial transactions” every day, totaling 21B gold daily; in Retail WoW, 76% of that is through the auction hall, while in-person trade is slightly more popular than the AH in Classic. There’s also a brief realm breakdown, the top 10 items auctioned off, a neat graph relating to AH sales around the opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj, and a chart showing auction volume across the regions, days, and hours. And then for game devs (this is coming from a security expert, after all!), there’s a handy visualization of methods to map out the biggest individual sellers – ergo, a tool for detecting likely goldsellers.
