Default Man spends $1.4 million on MMORPG character, friend sells it for $552, lawsuit ensues

Man sues NetEase after his friend sells a US$1.4 million game character for US$500

The court intervened and NetEase revocated the transaction while the buyer got nearly US$13,000 in damages

A man in China took his friend to court for selling a game character he spent US$1.4 million on for just US$552.

The man filed a proceeding against his friend and NetEase after the friend mistakenly sold off the character from the MMORPG Justice Online for just 3,888 yuan (US$552). The defendant said he was trying to sell the character back to his friend for 388,000 yuan (US$55,138), as he had been given the character to play. He attributed the typo to being dizzy from excessive gaming at the time.

But the moment the character was seen on NetEase’s in-game marketplace, it was snatched up by another buyer.

The case was ultimately settled with the mediation of a judge online. NetEase revoked the transaction, and the plaintiff paid the buyer 90,000 yuan (US$12,789) in damages. After the settlement, the local court in Sichuan posted on social media that the case was a great example of the protection of digital assets, and it warned gamers not to spend too much in video games.

These are just two morons.
The first one spends $ 1.4 million on the game
The second sells it all for $ 552.
The smartest in this story are the developers of this game. They benefited the most from this situation.
