How is it even a charity event if they are going to win prize money for what they do? A charity event means all money goes to a good cause. I bet none of those participating guilds could give a rats ass about children's rights anywhere and are just in it for the fame + prize money. Also, Athene is just annoyingly obnoxious and likewise will do anything to keep his 'popularity'. This whole thing is just so doublesided its making me sick to my stomach.
Eh, I have been in plenty of charity golf tournaments and most have some way for the participants to win something. Some have a hole-in-one thing for a certain hole where you can win a car. Others have a closest to the cup contest for a given hole where the person gets $100 or something like that.
Even charity 5k runs usually give a prize to the top runners by age group. Heh.. I know I won one when I was in the army (and did a run in my gfriends hometwon) and got a $50 gift card for Applebys.
Black Market will just encourage gold selling....bleh. My servers are already full of players buying gold as you don't throw 70k gold left and right my just doing dailies, playing AH and farming (boting i guess in that case) stuff..
It's a shame. Hope they make it Real Money AH as in D3. That way they cut the road for cheaters
