#2206130 Why Not Buy Gold From Gold Sellers?

Posted Khrushchev on 25 May 2013 - 04:49 PM

The argument is typically this:
To fulfill the amount of gold people order, gold sellers typically resort to botting and stealing legitimate player's accounts.

Both of these obviously hurt the game, and its players.

I won't be buying it, voting with your wallet is a huge thing that people do not grasp. There are not enough exclusives in the world to make me want to buy this Orwellian box.

What we will realistically see:

7 months from now we get a statement saying that rectifying the issue with MF is just too hard and instead, they have increased the % of finding good loot for everyone. They then backpeddle when realizing that giving good loot is against their "vision" and nerf drops across the board to a state worse than it is now. They make amends by introducing a new MF booster in the gem store that gives +200% MF for 1 hour. For a limited time...

Could just offer past Living Story events as a "spot of recollection" to interact with, with a prompt saying it'll take you and your group into an instanced area.
That way, they wouldn't be wasting dev time on temporary events.

So on the 12th they're removing Citadel of Flame and Sorrow's Embrace, since we neutralized both the Dredge and Flame Legion threat. You heard it here first, folks.

Is it just me, or does Colin seem more and more out of touch with the player base lately?  Comparing the living story to a T.V. show is pretty silly, especially since TV shows can be watched repeatedly (and more often than not these days it can be done on-demand).  One thing that should have been abundantly clear after the fiasco that was the Karka event is that temporary or one time content does not sit well with players, especially when it means resources were devoted to such content when there are still many bugs needing to be fixed and improvements that should have been made to the permanent content.

sounds like just equipping one makes your character get overconfident and Leroy to death.

"This night is cold in Wayfarer Foothills...one of the coldest I've seen in many years. It matters not, the embers of this forge and the ale in my belly shall keep me warm on this night. I am writing this letter so that it may bring comfort to you in the morning when you realize that I am gone. Too long have I watched and waited. Too long have I sat idle while my years have devoured my ambitions. This all changes tomorrow, I will be attending the Great Hunt. Something is calling me, Etha. I cannot say I know exactly what this something is, but it calls to me every night - breaking me from my sleep. I have forged a new great sword this night - Etha. If her namesake is any indication of her truth or dependability, she should be the finest steel in all of Tyria. I will return, Etha. Do not cry for me.

- Drakonis"

Readying himself for something grand.

Let me just say that yeah I agree there shouldn't be new threads for every little thing I do, especially on a forum like this where to most people its old news or off-base. Konig is also right, I made my own damn thread months ago where I could post for myself - I'm just too lazy or forgetful to update it, so thats on me. I would say to any mod, if they think threads like this are clutter, then just get rid of them.

As for me failing to cite my sources or whether I 'deserve' to be where I am (which by the way, is no where special - things always look bigger from the outside), I will say I have always tried to be clear when a particular theory isn't coming from me. But, truth is, I'm not completely inept. I do actually know my stuff. Often I haven't got a clue where a particular thought or observation about Tyria was originally made, I just know that I've heard it as some point over my many years following this game and wanted to share it.

As much as you might think it, Mexay, I don't sit around all day reading your or others theories and observations just so I can snipe them for myself. I am a fan of the game, I make my own observations. And these forums aren't the whole world. I rarely come here anymore because the discussion comes to me. Discussions with people that aren't so jaded or dismissive. I read, without fail, at least two or three wall of text theories from excited people about the game every day of my life. So excuse me if I don't 'contribute' in the ways you'd like me to. Do you know why I ask questions in the thread of no topic? Because I have never claimed to know everything, and I'm not afraid to go to other people for help. If you really don't think I deserve what I've worked on every day of my life, as a fan of the game, for the past two years, then be my guest smart-guy and do it yourself.

To everyone in general, I'm sorry if i'm the cause of any spam or headaches around here due to new people. But it should be a good thing we're sharing the lore to a larger audience like this. I wont apologise for doing that, even when I am occasionally errant.

Yes I am put on a pedestal. Yes, you probably know more about the game than me. But until you've put in the same kind of effort that I have, you don't get to complain. I'm just a person with a microphone, try not to forget that.
