I hate goldbuying, and I hate goldselling. So today’s rant deals with gold selling and gold buying.
Why do I hate it you ask? Because of a couple of reasons. Firstly, its blatantly against the TOS of most of the games that it occurs during. Most of them that is. There are a few games that do allow for gold purchasing but those are a different story.
Another reason I hate these goldsellers – They are disruptive! Thankfully the MMO I play, World of Warcraft, has for the most part put a stop to the annoying goldseller spam. But other games may not be so lucky. I remember the days where I would be walking along and suddenly get those special tells…U BAI GOLD? $20 get u 100 gold! Visit -insert annoying website here-.
Some of the goldsellers have gone as far in some cases to get around the World of Warcraft prevention system by getting a huge group of gnomes and having them die in the form of the URL of the site. I would show a screenshot but I couldn’t find any sadly.
The conditions that the gold farmers work in is crazy as well. They sit there, and just kill the same mobs for like 10 hours a day just to get money so that other people can purchase it. Then, most of these people actually go and PLAY World of Warcraft after hours! 0_0 As if the 10 straight hours of grinding wasn’t enough eh?
Then there are the gold buyers. Those who actually spend real money to purchase the gold. If it weren’t for these lazy bums then there would be no need for the sellers and farmers in the first place. I know a person who is an old coworker of mine, who told me flat out he bought 100 gold for like $40 just to get his level 40 mount, only to quit World of Warcraft a week later and basically waste that money. We call him GoldBoy now, and he hates it. When he asked us why, I told him that purchasing gold is a sign of pure lazyness and idiocy. Its not hard to farm money in a world where you can kill things endlessly for money. I mean really.
Go kill 50 mobs and make some cash. But some people cannot even bothered apparently to actually play the damn game! Seriously, if you are gonna just purchase money, why not go that extra step and buy an EBay World of Warcraft account! There are plenty of those there. But thats a whole nother story.
Suffice to say: Don’t buy gold/money in these games. Its lazy, pointless, wasteful, and in general will get you laughed at by most other people.
