Don't let the item mall play you. Everything in it is optional.
The problem is if you consider vanity items fun. Because then it becomes "Fun is optional", but who actually would claim they choose to not have fun playing?
Gambling shops is nothing but a huge threat against everything.
- People will refuse to use them, meaning part of the money Aeria Games would be getting won't come.
- People who need gold to buy market sold gambler vanity items will turn to gold sellers to be able to directly pay money to get their vanity items.
- People who buy from gold sellers need to be worried about getting banned constantly, just because they didn't want to gamble away all their money but wanted a harmless vanity item.
So Aeria Games lose money, Scarlet Blade becomes a gold seller home, and normal people who just like dressing up gets banned for breaking ToS. And for what? Aeria Games just being stubborn and not interested in customer satisfaction if their director is happy.
