    Or it's just that you're desperately trying to save face by jumping at inconsequential shit rather than accepting the facts laid out. Yeah, it's that.

    And my original point, still stands. Get over it.
    The whole arguement was about you being hypocrite (+ to some degree naive that you think banning few people in charge of gallywix will change anything) not discussion about what is and what is not against TOS.

    Do you see now? My last post. Keep making fool out of yourself. You should consider
    The problem here is that you're not using the word "hypocrite" correctly, and you're also citing me being facetious as proof, right after you tried to play down the use of RMT and told ME I don't know what it means.

    I'd be a hypocrite if I bought boosts or gold from 3rd party sellers whilst giving an appearance of being against doing so. You trying to make buying a sub from Blizzard, or the wow token, the same as RMT is a you issue. By your "logic", even buying the sub for access to the game shouldn't be allowed if RMT with a 3rd party ain't. Guess we can all expect Hardware IP bans momentarily...

    Or not, because you've got zero clue on anything that you've tried to make a point about.

    But keep trying to save face, it's adorable. Your last post is no more accurate than the several you made before it. And my original point about the idiots getting angry at "legal" trading with the company over RMT-boosting companies being punished? Yep, they're still idiots.

    I'm an opponent of ignorance and blatant falsehoods based on nothing but emotions and conjecture.
    Call me a fangirl, by all means. You'll simply look like an outraged, short-minded simpleton in doing so.

    Given the amount of people involved with Gallywix community, across all continents, including infiltrating wow fan sites by jebaiting them to post giveaways in Gallywix name, of course there will be loyalists defending them.

    So many people are able to pay the rent, because they can dish out real money out of games like this. I guess better later than never.

    You seem a little confused with the matter at hand.

    Real Money Trading goes beyond "buying gold for real life currency".

    When you buy a WoW Token you did just that, you bought gold. Yes, technically if you want to twist words you "traded" money for gold.
    But however you want to word it, it is a one-way road: you spend money at the official Blizzard store to buy in-game currency.
    This is no different than buying RP at Riot's store or *include whatever game has an in-game currency system*.

    The RMT that you refer to, when players literally trade gold for money and vice versa, is illegal.
    If Blizzard actually allowed this then they would be breaking actual laws.
    If you were able to, and officially allowed by Blizz, to sell your gold to whoever you wanted for real money then Blizzard basically runs a platform for international money laundering.

    There is a reason why none of these in-game currency gaming companies allow their players to trade their in-game currency for real currency.
    It's not because any company would give a shit if they could make a profit out of it.
    But because it is literally illegal unless they want every single government to interfere with their business because of taxation, afterall, your employer could literally pay you in WoW gold with zero taxes and you would be able to just cash it out.

    And they know exactly that happens with the Gallywix Gold... they‘ve known that right from the start... yet they have done virtually nothing about it - to the contraray: They have introduced content that actually promotes gold selling - like those cash sink mounts.
    And the only thing they are doing right know is sacrificing one big service so that everybody can see: „We do everything we can so that the game stays legit!“
    Same game the big social networks play... they ban some racist bullshit, some Trump tweet, nudity, whatever to show „they care“... but they let thousands get through because their business depends on it...

    Were these the same clowns that even had youtube adds? I was rather shocked how brazen some of these boosting services have gotten.

    The game has deteriorated over the years due to such practices,

    this is a very promising move that might fix the overall pace of the game.

    Thumbs up!

    Nobody is doing damage control, they fucked up, rip and go on.


    But still remains the fact that RMT is a problem that got bigger with Tokens and the way Blizzard is making indirectly Pay2Win-Pay2Play the game.

    Method and Limit WF, Corruption BoE are big red flag if you cant understand.

    In this case the "boomer" identify a specific type of player that is old and miss the old good time when people chit chat in every channel, even if wasnt the right one, but those are past time since there is no longer a server identity.

    WoW tokens are RMT indeed. Blizzard alone decides if RMT is a service that players should be able to get, and how. It'd absurd to think or believe that a company such as Blizzard would be OK with 3rd party RMT, which is a practice where Blizzard doesn't make a dime on any of the money being traded. They are also the only ones that get to decide whether 3rd parties should be allowed to do this. There is no monopoly, it's absolute power, because it's their game.

    Kind of crazy to think that about 7-8billion gold in total was lost due to those accounts being permanently banned.
    What's even crazier is that I've been playing WoW for 12 years (seriously for 6 of those) not once have I ever had more than 100k gold at one time LOL.

    They were selling it at $50 USD per 1million gold meanwhile Blizzard is charging $20 for 130k haha.
