Should players be prosecuted for in-game crimes outside of the game?
Well the answer is a resounding NO! South Korean authorities, however, don’t agree with me. I think in-game solutions are more satisfying to all involved. The ultimate sanction is a ban from the game or even a ban from all MMORPGs run by the company involved. Why get the state, officialdom and lawyers into something that can quite easily be handled without them?
This should provide a warning to MMORPG game companies. They need to give players ways of getting justice in-game or those truly slighted might feel the need to go out of game. This would be detrimental to both players and game companies alike.
