    It's not illegal, it's for the people who can't pay for the game, its against the Terms and Agreements, but the police have not said anything about it, it is not against the law!

    Actually, United States copyright laws don't apply in some countries such as Sweden and the Netherlands. Well, to a certain extent. Hosting a private server is probably legal there though. You could host it on a computer in Sweden from the United States.

    i dont see fun in that, playing alone and after 2 minutes u can already solo dungeons? pft thats why people that dont play the real game say it sucks, plus there is a 200% difference when you do a real dungeon with a raid of clan members and with your character that you worked your ass off to be leet, you feel superb because youve accomplished something hard in the game and everyone gets excited, you dont feel those emotions in those type of servers.

    Its not about being better in private servers it about exploring the World of Warcraft out of its digital bounds.

    Post Update

    We are still unsure about the answer to this post.

    i play on both private and public servers, i prefer public servers but im not the sort of person who will play for hours to get a weapon, just to see what it looks like. i enjoy raids and instances on public servers tho.

    About what countries it's legal to host a private server in, keep in mind that Albania has no computer laws. Of course, it also has no computers.....

    Do a google search. Goto a private server and ask the managers.

    The topic of legality can vary, but overall there is nothing they can do to you if you play on a private server. They may ask you to stop if you are hosting one, but like with gold selling, there are loopholes that really tie blizz's hands from preventing it altogether.

    The way I see it, Blizz already got your money when you paid $40 for the game and another $40 for the expansion. I would see no problem with playing on private servers. I would probably ber one one too if I knew how.

    but they don't get money from subscriptions... and that is more than 80$ for the game

    @Shados: that was quite offensive, doesn't fit a moderator

    then what are they doing with that $15 x 8,000,000? i know that it doesnt ALL go to the server maintinence, GMs and such, infact a very small amount does. the vast majority of it goes to share holders, but dont worry, they DO get money from subscriptions.



    read this:

    those rules were actually written by shados, i thought his joke was funny anyways, becaue thats what it was.....a joke. geez.

    my reply to shados was sarcastic as well :> u just got doublesarcastz0r3d

    I meant they GET money from subscriptions, but if people play on private servers they LOSE money, so they CHASE "non-subscribers"

    I guess this is right. I think blizzard didn't made a rule about 'private' servers.
