You buy gold?


It seems some online game players are outsourcing the boring gold gathering and chicken slaying which is a required part of starting practically any multi-player game to anonymous Chinese workers in game factories. Then once they’ve leveled up to the point where they can do the fun stuff, like killing giant monsters and such, they take over. Weird.
