GUANGZHOU, CHINA – Xiao Feng, a 23-year-old man obsessed with the World of Warcraft video game, was failing at school and had no intentions of looking for a job. His father said “enough is enough” and decided to seek some help.

World of Warcraft is a multi-player online game set in a fantasy land. With over 10 million subscribers it’s also becoming an incubator of new professions. The virtual hit man is one of them. One day, Xiao Feng noticed his characters were being killed one by one. With an overwhelming frustration Xiao Feng decided it didn’t make any sense to start playing the game all over again. That’s exactly what his father had in mind when he hired expert players to put an end to his son’s addiction.

The game offers different parental control settings to limit the time kids spend in front of the screen. Adult players, on the other hand, will have to rely on their own ability to grow up.
