Actually the biggest problem I have with your argument is that while I make less than you, I pay the same amount for my game time and I have about the same amount of free time not working (I only work 40-45 hours/week also). So essentially both our times online are worth the same.What's worse is your logic that your time is worth $25/hour. Your job pays a set amount. The trouble is if you work more, you do not make more. So your time is actually not worth anything. It is your work (that you accomplish in the 40-45 hours/week) that is worth 50g at the end of the year.As anecdotal evidence, during one project here, my department had to put in a lot of overtime to get the project done. Since I get paid time and a half for overtime and my boss is on salary, we figured it out that my time was apparently worth almost 18/hour for that month (normally 15 at the time) and that his time was ironically at just over minimum wage ($8/hr here in CA). Granted during normal weeks, I still made 15/hour and he made considerably more than 18/hour (more than your 50g/yr even), it was still funny at the time. Kinda.And the real kicker is you tried to apply all this to buying gold or waiting for an afk raider. If your time is cut so fine that you don't have the patience for playing the game, then I question why you spend money on a game you don't have time to properly enjoy. If the threat of losing your account is your deterrence from buying gold or working out how valuable your gold/hour has to be to make it worth it to you, then I strongly encourage you to buy gold. Once you are goldcapped and quit the game because you could no longer earn gold, I'm sure your server will be very proud and happy.
