NetEase has suspended registration of new accounts for World of Warcraft in China.Sign-ups won’t be accepted from today. NetEase is now applying for a licence to run The Burning Crusade in the country. The cancellation of sign-ups comes after it was reported in January that the Chinese authorities were preparing to rule against NetEase for illegally operating WoW in the country. Roughly half of WoW’s 11-12 million users are Chinese.
