Be more careful when it comes to children and in-game property
It is well known to us that little children have a love of small animals.One of the reasons is that children consider animals as their pets.Pets which in the game are still liked by them.
Last week, a gamer in China posted on the World of Warcraft forums about how he almost lost all of his hard-earned WoW gold in the blink of an eye. The father, whose in-game name is "1004" posted that he had a six year-old son who he plays WoW with at home. 1004 said his son enjoys the monster hunting aspects of the game, and particularly likes pets.
During his eight years of playing WoW, 1004 says he accumulated about 4,706,000 gold. But all of his gold was gone when he logged onto the game last week! Confused and scared, he questioned his son, asking whether or not the boy had touched his account and bought anything such as weapons or mounts. Unfortunately , his son said he had no clue.
The father felt so upset, then he decided to check everything before calling customer service. Lo and behold, his son had purchased loads of in-game level 25 pets. Unable to get too angry with his son, and now broke, 1004 says he'll probably give up WoW for a while though he prefers warlock green fire quest online.
I only say sorry to this father, another gamer on the message board shared another sob story. This gamer claimed that she left her iPad unlocked and her 6 year-old started playing with it.Unbeknownst to her, her child had ended up spending $1,200 . Unfortunately this gamer didn't go into details, but we can get some lesson from these story is that parents should be more careful when it comes to children and in-game property.
