China = Non-China

Gamasutra - Chinese World of Warcraft Players Threaten Boycott

"The Chinese userbase reports widespread delays of over an hour when logging
into the game and getting a server list, and the last straw seems to have been
complete server outages that disrupted the endgame of a large-scale raid
involving nearly 1,000 players."

Don't we have this all the time in the non-China versions?

Update - (thanks to this post from Clickable Culture) - Apparently in China they pay by the hour rather than by the month. It's not really different I think; we're all paying for time spent in queue. The insanity of it is just painfully more obvious when you're paying for it by the hour.
