What do you think of these people?

Just joined a party wherein someone with Juggernaut, Moot and Flameseeker Prophecies was talking to someone else on how he had to spend so much RL money to finish his legendaries because "he just wanted it so bad". He had 4.6k achievement points.

What is wrong with these people? Personally, I think it's one of the most pathetic things you can do in this game.

Almost as pathetic as making a topic about it.
Does it really get under your skin that bad that some people are wealthy enough to throw tons of disposable income into a game they enjoy? Guess jealousy can make you a bit bitter huh?

Yep and very much so.

Always wondering why they are in such a hurry to spend cash for something you will eventually get anyway by just playing the game they, as you say, enjoy

So it's pathetic to spend real money rather than waste hours grinding in a game? Ok...
If you have the money, and that's what you want to do, then go for it.
And anyway, people who do that are bringing down the cost of gems, so it actually benefits other long term.

So he chose a different road to the same destination and it bothers you? Why? It's his money, it's his game, it's his characters and you didn't need to choose to interact with him in any way.

I genuinely don't care about legendaries or what other people do with their money. Doesn't affect me in any way.

You don't have to grind to get a legendary.

I guess I'm just bothered that if feels like it cheapens the legendaries.

There are people who work hard and play the game to achieve a legendary and there are those who just dump they're cash on gems and buy it from the TP.

Yes this bothers me a lot, sorry if it seems like a small thing to get bothered by but I can't be the only one that feels this way

I am happy that people are throwing money into the game :D as long as that person isn't me.

When a game builds its payment model around selling gold and making one of the most desirable things in the game available to buy for gold, this is what will happen. Some call it pay to win, some won't.

However, as I have stated in the past, people generally have frowned upon these things in the past. No one likes to have people buy their way to the same things other people have to work for.

But, yes, legendaries are a grind. Especially trying to get a precursor.

Wouldn't be worth it to me, personally - but if others have the spare change and like to throw money at the game, why not.

And I applaud those people who do it and admit it. Because there's nothing more irritating to me than people who you just KNOW buy their shit with RL cash and they try so hard to convince everyone that's not the case that it gets rather desperate.

You do know that the money "thrown in to the game" doesn't go to ANet, right? It goes to NCSoft who then decided where to invest that money.

How does one know?

I doubt there are many people who use cash to buy their legendaries to admit using cash.

There is absolutely no reason for a thread with no purpose other than to insult people.
