Apr 27th 2010 10:46AM Sounds like someone is spending cash shop generated funds in the wrong way. Mmos and the bloggosphere market themselves, why not spend that money on game development instead of tv ad space. which the mmo market leaves on in the background while they play pc games?
Apr 22nd 2010 1:35PM well i love raiding, and id love a priest, but i cannot justify lvl 1-70 on a priest, so if I could safely pay someone to get it for me, i would. not worth giving someone my password now.
eventually blizz will let everything start at 55 and sell gold so these guys will get shut down.
And i bet aion sees alot of power leveling since its supposedly "Super-Korean" but that game has been bad since they started playing it 4 yrs ago

Apr 16th 2010 9:01AM Im just very worried they are seeing other companies having success with microtransactions jumping on the band wagon, and going to move this along further.
I hope we can never buy; emblems, tokens, titles, trade skill mats, recipes, consumables, or weapons/armor/shards
Apr 16th 2010 7:55AM Nice to see someone other than blizzard thriving.
Never played RuneScape before, but kudos to them.
Apr 16th 2010 6:31AM I never got that feeling, Ive been listening to him in podcasts for "god only knows how long" and I really liked him. I always felt like he was really passionate about what he does.. well, did.
I wonder where he is going to and if he's going to maintain his community presence?
Apr 15th 2010 8:40AM careful, they will find a way to make that income,
this is one small step away from in game advertisement.
Wait till you get to watch a commercial b4 you load your instance. better to let them keep some advertising revenue on their forums.

Mar 18th 2010 1:09PM Aren't These stats a little Jaded? Does it say anywhere that all this money is being spent on items purchased directly. Or are there this happening like;
(please excuse use of words like "Chinese, Vietnam, I, and WOW" just a rudimentary example.
US wow player sells account, ("Chinese" money spent), this company sells to another company, back to a user or liquidates account and sells, gold and item for resale, Money spent again.
Lonely American buys account, buys gold, Chinese supplier restocks gold into inventory from a company in Vietnam where labor is cheaper?
Also , they have had much more time to get used to countless, Smaller free to play games with micro transactions.
I hate how statistics don't ever really tell you what they are attempting to tell you.
Mar 10th 2010 7:02AM I was just about to make a post like this!
Good Job Thac0
