    WARNING: Do not play games from Perfect World Entertainment. They purposely make misleading statements to cost players money. They deploy "sponsored"/"affiliated" players inside their games to cheat players. They do this so the game is only fun to a certain point if your playing for free, and if you do start spending money, begin to target and cheat you. Before I realized these "sponsored" players were working with/working for PWE, I used to hear them laughing about stealing kids accounts and getting them banned. DO NOT PLAY (OR AT THE VERY LEAST DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY WITH PERFECT WORLD ENTERTAINMENT PRODUCTS), UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE TARGETED/CHEATED/PLAY AGAINST PWE'S ARMY OF "SPONSORED" PLAYERS. I am an idiot, I was duped. They get you to spend little and let you achieve a lot at first. Once PWE has your money and your committed, they become more blatant with their tactics. Do not be duped as well. SEARCH "PERFECT WORLD ENTERTAINMENT", "GLASSDOOR.COM", "JOBS", and get an idea of what the company is like.

    On an added note. Before I knew these players were "sponsored" players, I used to hear them laughing about banning people and taking their accounts. Thats the integrity of this company. PLAY FOR FREE, The founders pack is a giant BULLSEYE for their "sponsored" players...

    Here is another interesting fact. When one of their employee's makes a misleading statement or fraudulent statement (that costs customers tens of millions of dollars all together), the employee gets promoted. Thats Perfect World... Integrity, honestly.... what the heck are those things, PWE doesnt know or care?
