FormlessOne: Ah, I love it when thieves exclaim "sure, it wasn't moral, it wasn't ethical, and it was against the rules of the game, but as it wasn't explicitly illegal, you can't do anything about me ripping you off and contributing to the demise of the game itself."

Jack Lambert's Missing Teeth: Why didn't they just make the game like that when they released it instead of waiting for the expansion?
Abracapocalypse: I have complete respect for this guy. He didn't bot in game. He didn't exploit. he just played the stock market. Bravo.
palelizard: Yeah, I'm trying to figure out why this is a problem, or even against the ToS. From the article, it sounds like he didn't cheat or anything, he just wrote a program to automate things he could do in person. That shouldn't be punished.
TNel: Other than the fact that you can't sell in game items or currency which is what makes it against ToS. Plus most MMOs say you can't use any outside automation, you can use their in house ones as much as you want.
TNel: I've done this in every MMO that I've played. Look over all of the sale items and look for stuff you know is way under priced and buy it up. You just need a large amount of capital upfront. Same thing people do IRL, buy cheap or for free on craigslist then go and sell on eBay or flea markets.
palelizard: Oh, I thought the auction allowed for actual cash transactions.
TNel: palelizard: Oh, I thought the auction allowed for actual cash transactions.No just in game money so it's all "legal" until you sell your gold to the gold farmers.
GameSprocket: Not sure where you are going with this. This guy used the real money auction house.
