Hey Guys, Where do you all usually purchase your golds from ? I just came across this site

playerturbo and bought

some golds and i realise they also have a price beating service to beat whichever site who is cheaper than theirs by 5% which

i would like to take advantage of. So i can get the cheapest gold on the market and their fast and good service on top of

that. Thanks for your help in advance.

See the game forum. - The management

Why ? Is the market shooting up ?

zmama

In online games, there is an economy.

Some people instead of playing for their online gold to buy stuff in game, will pay "gold farmers" real live cash for online gold

Funko
05-07-2005, 13:10:04
Ok, so it's just appalling grammar then.

Venom

It's comprehensible to the super MMORPG dorks.

What?

What the fucking fuck is going the fuck on?

So, instead of getting 1,000,000 points in pac man, I'd give someone real actual money for the points?

Yes.

For extra fun, what you purchase doesn't even belong to you - since they are bits of computer code copyrighted by the developer/publisher. So you pay for something that doesn't exist and wouldn't legally belong to you even if it did exist.

What kind of utter retard would do that kind of thing? If you want points/money, play the game. It's only a game.

Funko

On the other hand...

It does mean that you can get paid for playing games by selling stuff to people stupid enough to pay for it!

Yes they are utter retards. There was a case in China recently where some guy bought a (computer game) sword for a small fortune of Real Money, let his mate borrow it for a while, his mate sold it, then the first guy stabbed his mate several times and is now in prison for life.

When Dorks Attack!

Funko
05-07-2005, 13:52:35
If it was only a computer game sword how did he stab him?

No way I'd ever spend cash for that. You're actually paying money to fast forward the game, on top of your subscription money to play at all. What's the rush?

Of course, I've been playing MMORPG's for only two weeks now.

But by buying gold I'm not playing the game as I should thereby ruining my happiness.

How can we buy our golds if the site is a big bag of shite that doesn't load?

I wouldn't mind buying some good arms, it would certainly increase my wanking enjoyment.

honghong's mother never loved him. That's why. Also, he's gay. I mean really gay. Like 10 times gayer than the Shaker, but he can't come out of the closet. Lying is a part of his life.

i think you make a mistake ,because everyone need some haapy things ,right .e.g :running : singing : playing : and so on . playing games is a thing which we do n our leisure time ,right ? so you can choose thing you like .
want to buy gold just for amusement ,right ?
so want and need just for fun !

The point of playing the game is playing the game. By buying gold you circumvent parts of the game, thereby destroying the point of playing the game. This leads to a loss of happiness and eventually suicide. So your site leads to people killing themselves. I hope you're happy. Murderer.

Is World of Warcraft a subscription game or do you just buy it once and play online?

Venom
05-07-2005, 17:17:26
I'm not passing judgement. I'm just making an accusation.

And at least I kill people directly. Not with some lame web site.

Clearly you've never tried to buy an epic mount. Or an auction house epic.

Not that I'm endorsing hughug's happiness here, I just wanted to make the point that everything Venom said after "circumvent parts of the game" is a complete and total untruth. To put it most basicially, do people winning the lottery feel uphappy because they are circumventing parts of real life? Or do they feel happy because they can get on the with fun parts of it, like buying sportscars and hookers?

Similarly, buying gold online circumvents the *boring* part of the game.

Lurker the Second
06-07-2005, 02:10:09
"after 'circumvent parts of the game'" was unnecessary.

The Mad Monk
06-07-2005, 04:28:41
I've never done it, but I don't see the difference between spending money to improve your online gaming and spending money on, say, high quality drivers to improve your golf game.

You're already paying $15 or so a month to just play, why not throw in a few extra bucks and have more fun?

I thought WoW went gold ages ago.

I have a friend who spams my email about the coming ginormous spike in silver prices coming in the next 9 months or so. So go silver! Gold is so passe.

The Mad Monk
06-07-2005, 06:21:52
I bought seventeen pounds of silver back in 2003, at an average cost of around $6.00 an ounce.

Go silver, indeed.

Oh I'm such a newbie to the MMO world. I thought playing through the game was the fun part. Silly me.

06-07-2005, 13:04:29
It's all about the ph4t l3wt.

Is there somewhere I can buy the game, pay a years worth of subscriptions and buy a max-level character with all the best items? Then I could quit the game, claim I pwned everybody and wouldn't ever have to play at all! Wicked!

King_Ghidra
06-07-2005, 13:07:03
mostly venom, you're right, but as shiny said, when it comes to high-end content you're often talking about things that are only accessible to unemployed insomniacs. I despise the concept of power levelling, but on the other hand, something like farming for gold or specific rare drops is not intirinsically fun, so i can easily understand why people want to take short cuts.

The Higgelhoff
06-07-2005, 13:14:39
No-one ever admits to taking shortcuts though :)

Venom
06-07-2005, 13:18:25
Then we must do a cost-benefit analysis. Is the cost of buying the gold less than what the subscription fee would be to earn the gold? If so, then we must buy all our gold and not renew our subscription for maximum efficiency.

Venom: Nope, never actually bought gold myself - main reason being that it's massively against the TOU, and pretty easy to prove if there's need of a crackdown on it. (Honghong randomly sends you 800 gold in the mail one day, and logs show that's the only contact you have EVER had with that player in the entire 6 months? TOUgh luck, you're banned!)

Additionally, the ways and means employed by the gold farmers to acquire the gold they sell generally inconvieniences the hell out of legit players. They will farm important mobs for items in areas where other players need those mobs for a quest, and they will spam chinese at you, train mobs to you, or (PvP servers) try to kill you for moving in on their area. Worst of all, they generally try to dominate the auction house on the servers they infest, cornering the market in menial lowbie skillup items, which then sell for ridiculous amounts.

Farmers are bad because they generally ruin the enjoyment of the game for everyone BUT the people buying the gold. Wrecking the economy in an MMO is just as good as death for that game - lowbie new players can't get any of the things they need, the server stagnates, and prices inflate to the point they no longer allow the regular trading systems in the game to mean anything. (Where's Lurker or RC when you need them?)

So yeah, MURDERER is actually pretty apt, come to think.
