So why is this bad? The guy buying the gold is not hurting anyone but himself by risking a ban for breaking TOS, right? Well, as we have seen, he is hurting everyone in the game who does not buy gold by reducing their gold buying power. You must now pay 80 gold for an Eden Crystal instead of the 60 gold it might have been. The symbolís value is the same, but the gold it takes to buy it has been reduced in value. The gold buyer is stealing from everyone else in the game. He is not stealing their gold, but he is stealing their gold value.
So basically with out stating some of the tough issues WHY people buy gold, this is the conclussion. But if your not willing to understand how much this game scams the consumer then you have been brain washed severly and think buying gold is bad.
Of course the TOS doesnt want you to buy gold. It wouldnt destroy this game. It will only level the playing field. This game has one of the highest Dollar/Store Currency ratios I have ever seen in a game. For example. To get to the highest tier you have to spend at least 140-150 US Dollars. Then once you reach the end of the tier you get a box that has a small chance of obtaining the final prize to only be left with a high chance to obtain an item only worth about 10-20 US worth of AP.
Crystal Altar is rigged and you can clearly listen to the double landing sound that lets you know you landed on something good but it double jumped the a colored EC. Thus requiring you to buy more to have the small chance of obtaining high quality items that are commonly used in the game. Allowing to land on different colored EC's you give people the hope that they can start at a higher tier and have a chance to get a better item. Only to stab them in the back when 8/10 times the transformed Blue EC lands on the first blue EC and the transformed Yellow EC lands on the first Yellow EC. Making the whole point of landing on them to think you have hope is to secretly not tell you "GAME OVER"
You get what you pay for when you buy gold from gold buyers. The prices fluxuate as do any market. But to charge people obscene amounts of real money just to finally get the small chance to obtain something worth having is ludacris. Im sure that there are only 2 types of people that buy gold. Ones that dont have the real time to play and others that are fed up with being robbed legally.
Pay to play games WITH OUT an item store I would understand these conditions. In a P2P game you have to earn everything. In this game you have to eithe pay for it or grind along time to just get one item at a time.
No one is ever going to admit their wrongs. So the conclussion stays the same. Dont buy gold its bad. Spend your money with us, we will take care of you by giving you a small chance at fairness.
