I did a reply fail twice. I finally figured out you have to reply to the parent comment.I think you will have far less impact by having a method to allow sale than to disallow it. You can restrict it to a degree that way. Most folks would rather buy in game than out of game so you knee cap the current gold selling scheme.You cannot stop this behavior, even if it against the TOS. Better to do as other games have and mold it. I'm tired of gold spam, hacking and other non-sense. You will never get rid of it entirely, but you will most likely greatly reduce it if you provide a frame work for managing the behavior.I'm not saying I like the idea of someone buying their way to being better than me (I love Bind On Pickup as a solution to that) but I also know you can not entirely stop it.We need to stop pretending that video games are level playing fields and accept we have a full spectrum of personality types playing these games. To make the game enjoyable we need to provide management of behavior that is effective, as the current model is not effective and still leaves the game with a lot of annoyances around this issue.
