OP  3/11/13 9:43:51 PM#1

Hi all,

sometime in some games, most with low reward rate like runescape (worst of all), and some others, I see beggars chat: *FREE ST00F plox* and such.

from my part I never give anything for several reasons, but I saw people giving items and cash to them.

what do you think about and do you give anything to random beggars?

do you give free stuff to beggars?

sure, we need help newby
sure, I'm not greedy
sure, it's just pixel cash
nah, they don't have selfrespect
nah, they all pretty annoying
nah, they can work too
depends on beggars
never, these are gold sellers
no (I'll tell my reason)
I'm beggar, give me my ST00F!
(login to vote)

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

Rewarding people for begging encourages them to beg more.  That's the opposite of what we want, isn't it?

I help them.

By giving them nothing.

Otherwise how will they understand the value of anything?

Usually ignore them but if they are to pushy I will put up a large amount of plat in a trade window and then go AFK.

I use to give out plat in eq1, haven't done anything like that in a long while though. It's pretty easy to make money through auction houses, and since pretty much every recent game has BoP/level/class/ requirements for gear, handing out gear is kind of pointless.

I've done that before.

I also sometimes reply with something to the effect of, "So let me get this straight:  you spend real-life money to come beg for fake online-game currency?"

It really depends on the beggar, I've helped one that was polite and needed some money that I as a high level had, so i did so and he didn't bother me ever again.But if the damn person is just sitting there SPAMMING chat and everyone around them for money, straight to the ignore list.

If it's just "halp fr33 stuff pl0x" then forget it.

But... if they do a decent RP job of playing it out in-character, thereby contributing to the atmosphere of the setting, I'll give them something.

ive always thought begging really differed according to which game your playing, in games like anarchy online and DAOC a little bit of $$ can really help out a new player where as games like WOW etc. begging is completely pointless.

Let em put a slave ring thru u're nose u're prob not going to like where they're taking you. Think.

I wont give to beggers but I don't hate them or find them annoying.  I worry for them.  I don't think they lack respect.  I think they lack self discipline and experience.

3/12/13 2:12:18 AM#13 Age of Wushu there is a Beggar's Sect and there is a Begging Profession - I find it to be annoying when on the receiving end. Having to do the begging yourself, when the game allows such a method, was also pretty harsh. Lots of denials and slaps in the face.

Now begging in a game without an actual Begging Profession is incredibly annoying, and I will most likely just ignore the person.

Voted "depends on beggars". If person asks for some stuff, like "I need that Shiny Sword..." - I can craft it just out of the fun. Hve your sword and fight, if you wish.

I met other persons (in Istaria I code-named it "Person A"). Annoying type - "plz plz help me kill as much spiders as u could, plz", "You help me get to Point XYZ", "Craft me that Halberd". I ended in ignoring him and helping only when I thought it was rational. And if we refused - he went almost crying, telling he would go to the very dangerous area and commit (virtual...) suicide here.

no (i'll tell my reason):

  I've found through past experiences that the majority of these "beggars" that I've come across are actually people in game that have alts and or mains that are pretty well off or doing just fine in the game.  They roll new characters and beg for gold, credits, etc., just for the hell of it or to pad their pockets.

  I made the mistake of helping some of these beggars before and afterward would add them to my friend list to track their advancement, sadly almost all of them never progress passed that level they beg at, never sign on again, or actually delete the character completely.

Playing: Smite
Played: Nexus:Kingdom of the Winds, Everquest, DAoC, Everquest 2, WoW, Matrix Online, Vangaurd, SWG, DDO, EVE, Fallen Earth, LoTRo, CoX, Champions Online, WAR, Darkfall, Mortal Online, Guild Wars, Rift, Tera, Aion, AoC, Gods and Heroes, DCUO, FF14, TSW, SWTOR, GW2, Wildstar, ESO
Waiting On: Nothing really, though Black Desert looks pretty amazing so far.

I had a player stop me and ask for 5 silver (a miniscule amount).  I was so impressed with the fact that s/he wasn't asking for a large amount of gold, I gave them a tidy sum.  For me such an event is quite rare.  I bust butt working the economy and as a general rule don't reward begging.

I don't give money to beggers because if you need to beg the game probably isn't for you. I tend to help people who are making progress or trying to make progress.

It depends on the beggar, I recently encounter one player in a free to play MMO who simply ran up to me and said give me money... he didn't get any.

Same opinion here. I have as rule to never help any beggar.

And also, if I managed to get where I am on my own, they can do it too.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.
