NTES will get WOW players statistics

One can find my previous article on this subject here:

Just a quick short article before I start to write a player review for the new hot game, SNDA’s AION.

From the following article:

It is an official news release from the NTES’s WOW team that Blizzard and NCTY had reached a formal agreement for NCTY to provide all WOW players’ statistics and game data to Blizzard.

On 6/7/2009, right before WOW shut down on NCTY’s game servers, Blizzard will take a snapshot of all players’ data. Therefore, all WOW players game data (including the left over un-used game card value at that point in time) will all to saved and transferred to NTES.

Even up to a short time ago, a lot of Chinese articles assume that Blizzard can’t get players data. But just like what I had expected all these time, no matter how badly NCTY wants to cling onto WOW, Blizzard would have make sure this is stated in the contract. I never thought this will be much of an issue (contractually).

Anyway, it seems the last unknown is answered and the last troublesome spot has been avoided.

But unlike almost everybody in Wall Street, I am much more excited with NTES’s staples of upcoming new games.

Yes, NTES will make a bundle in WOW, but I think the money from WOW will pale in significance compare to that of these new upcoming games (starting with the new FF). Hopefully, I will have some free time to write about these new games.

I'm in a love-hate relationship with digital memory because of how prices are always,and I domean always dropping. I absolutely hate buying Micro SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (seemingly) a crazy bargain price only to see it become ten percent cheaper a couple of weeks later.

Great Penny Stock Investing said...

I would like to take a second to talk about low price penny stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. The single most important thing that investors must realize about low price stocks or stocks under five dollars is this’ their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding and covering quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.


A test for now
