Serves him right. Cruel - even though it wasnt propably planned - murder because of something that doesnt really exist.

The entire thing is kind of insane, if you think about it it's like having your friend steal $870 from you ( it's an enormous amount of money in china ), of course it's no reason to stab him, but I can understand he was angry.

If your life is online about online gaming, where you can easily pkill anyone maybe it messes up your brain like that? it's the same old debate about videogames though, and I think the answer is, it can have that affect on very few people, who could just as easily have been affected by movies, books, religion or whatever else they got thier hands on.

Online gamer gets life sentence


A Chinese online game player who stabbed a competitor to death for selling his cyber-sword has been given a suspended death sentence, which in effect means life imprisonment.

The case had created a dilemma in China where no law exists for the ownership of virtual weapons.

Qiu Chengwei, 41, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold Chengwei's "dragon sabre," used in the popular online game, "Legend of Mir 3," the China Daily said Wednesday.

"Legend of Mir 3" features heroes and villains, sorcerers and warriors, many of whom wield enormous swords.

Qiu was sentenced to death "with a two-year reprieve," which in effect means life behind bars. That, in turn, could be reduced to 15 years if he behaves well, the newspaper said of the sentence which has angered the victim's family.

"My son was only 26 when he died," said Zhu Huimin, the dead man's father, who is planning to appeal. "He was sleeping when Qiu broke into his home. He was barely able to put on his pants before Qiu stabbed him.

"We want Qiu to die, and immediately."

Qiu and a friend jointly won their weapon last February, and lent it to Zhu who then sold it for 7,200 yuan ($870), the newspaper said.

Qui went to the police to report the "theft" but was told the weapon was not real property protected by law.

"Zhu promised to hand over the cash but an angry Qui lost patience and attacked Zhu at his home, stabbing him in the left chest with great force and killing him," the court was told.
More and more online gamers are seeking justice through the courts over stolen weapons and credits, the newspaper said at the time the case went to trial.

"The armor and swords in games should be deemed as private property as players have to spend money and time for them," Wang Zongyu, an associate law professor at Beijing's Renmin University of China, was quoted as saying.

But other experts have called for caution. "The 'assets' of one player could mean nothing to others as they are by nature just data created by game providers," a lawyer for a Shanghai-based Internet game company was quoted as saying.

Player-X’ way of posting news is really the best one. I agree with him on the standard; it makes life much easier ;)

That guy is deranged. Demanding payment, getting angry and stop talking with the friend would be ok, but killing him?

I’m against capital punishment, so I think that life sentence serves him well. Society must be protected from these people.

Tsk tsk. Poor Zhu, If only he used the dragon sabre to protect hiimself he might still be alive now.

Wait a minute, did I get this wrong or Zhu sold a virtual sword for $870? Isnt that kinda expensive for a non-existent sword?

and I thought selling my Ragnarok Account for $50 is pricey. :p

An acquaintance of mine bought a piece of equipment for his Mu Online character for $500. Talk about wasting money (he saved money for several months to buy it).

Yeah, If I were him I would spend the $500 on game time. I bet that would be enough to get the item you want and at the same time you enjoyed playing.

Mu Online is a big hit in Rio de Janeiro’s Lan Houses. I’ve several friends who just love this game. I haven’t tried it myself, though.

Unbelievable, I tried it during beta for awhile, it's diablo rip-off that is not even nearly as good as the original Diablo, and you have to JUMP all the time otherwise it'll take forever to get between places, I've never played a worse MMORPG and I've tried a whole lot of them.
