Guys, stop bashing Shiz please, she's one of the nicest people to play this game.
PWL and PAL and currently an abomination for the game. They could work really well, but they ONLY come by those annoying mboxes.
I do not blame that fact that they cannot be traded (which is not the biggest issue in my eyes), but the way AGE decided to distribute them. AGE is responsible for the scams, as they created a system where a a few steps are extremely rare. The cannot shove it off to Nexon on this, as this is purely the item mall and promotional strategy.
People will want to trade, and people will want to scam. AGE as a publisher provides a platform which makes scamming easy, profitable and common. The worries are not for the hardcore players, but more for the unlucky people who put too much faith in humanity.
