Only if you would have earned money on it.

Calling in sick from work to play might indeed be money, but if you earned gold while having a good time playing a fun game you lost nothing.

guess i should have wrote "your time = their money" 

 

the more time people spend playing gw2 the less time they are spending in other games.  they are trying to get people to spend more time in their game.  so they can make more money and take money away from the competition.  re-iterating use of the gem store every few months is just icing on the cake.

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

Bought both full costumes (700 each), primeval skin, 3 halloween minis, bank slot. Half of those gems were bought with ingame gold, the rest for 20$. I don't regret it, those costumes are tons of fun xD

 

oh, I thought this game is "free" or as people like to call it nowadays "buy to play" ?

How come you handed out 20$ on top of the box price now...?

Because it has a cash shop and he bought something from it. I think that part was pretty obvious.

Some people must go to bars (free!) and then complain when they have to pay for (optional) drinks.

Zero for real money. May use some in game gold for the extra character and bank slots.

If the evolution of mmorpgs is getting suckered into this kind of cash shop frenzy, my days as an mmorpg player are numbered.

most people have a lot of gems not spending a single dime of real money... honestly some people are incredibly spoiled considering this game has no monthly sub

This, I had a good bit of gold saved up since I don't have a great deal of in game things I'm interested in speding it on I converted it to gems and have purchased everything I want off the store. Mak King costume, check! Hood, check! Bunch of keys, check! Couple of minis, check! real cash cost = $0

 

Gotta love that cash grab anet has going on lol.

You already got suckered in. It's hilarious that you don't think you're part of it.

if he didn't spend any real money how is that getting suckered in?

time=money

so basically most other MMOs are triple screwing everyone.. they take up a ton of time, have cash shops, and charge a monthly sub

 

No one is screwing you on the time factor. With a join date of February and nearly 5000 post you have more then enough time to waste.

From where are people getting this 'most have saved loads of gems / gold'? some statistic or data you have access to? there is nothing more flawed than thinking that you = entire game population. Yes you people spent 0 cash because you had loads of gold and gems saved up but how are you so certain that is how the majority is?

I just recently read a topic on official forums about 'how much gold you have' and the most replies said around 10 to 20 gold.

Only naive people or hardcore GW2 supporters would deny that this event wasn't a money grab. i am sure Anet has more accurate data here regarding how much gold an average players has than anyone on these forums claiming 'most' or 'majority'.

Those gems that people have a lot of are just like real money, atleast in the GW2 eorld.  In fact, real money is converted to gems.

Yeah, since I left the sub games I feel bad for those who spend $200 - $250 a year for the time sinks and then their micro-transactions on top of the subs.  That's just crazy.

I could buy $100 worth of gems (I won't) and still get off cheaper than the subscription games.

There you go again. If there is an issue brought up about GW2, your response of "It's like this in every game." is getting tired, and misleading.  No, no it's not.

$0.00

 

Its actually interesting seeing people up in arms about this. It is a money trap, for those that fall for it. But to me it's no different than the money trap that is paying a sub....

So how much are you spending a year on your sub game?  Do you rant and rave "over there" about their micro-transaction cash grabs and the xpac costs in addition to the sub fees?   Oh, the naive subscription gamers and their self-righteous rationalizations that their money spent is justified.

Im going to send $20 since game come out ive spent nothing on gems so asfar as i see it still going to cost less than $15 a month subscription fee.  Prob end up spending like $20 on all the events and it still cost me less than a monthily subsciption fee so i have no issues.

I refuse to support RNG based cash shop items, a big mistake from Anet as far as I'm concerned, they'll get absolutely 0 from me.

Those other games do not have ingame lottery (gambling) systems, or gold buying.

No, instead you have to pay 15 dollars a month. They both have money traps, just in different ways.

Those other games don't have an in game lottery?  I guess your game is missing rare loot tables that are a time sink grind  99.999% of other games have.

So that was a nice strawman.  Now answer my question.  How much are you spending on TSW in total for 1 fiscal year?

[mod edit]

Those other games cash shops do not involve ingame lottery (gambling) systems, or gold buying, nor do they encourage either. In fact they are discouraged to the point of banning.

 

edit - to your other post. A drop from a mob has nothing to do with buying lotto tickets from a cash shop.

Over the year for a sub, I'll pay about 156 dollars or about 46c a day.

When i pay for a sub game i know what i am getting. It is not same as throwing money for lottery and that is what this whole event is.

I could acre less how and where people spend money but for me this is more of an ethical issue than anything else. I do not condone such activities and i believe players should not encourage this.
