Did you really think they would be stopped? This game was actually made to cater to them perfectly. No matter what a game does they will find a way.

They don't really have to worry about catching the banstick to the face at this point and they probably know it.



Right now from a financial standpoint it better for se to leave them alone. If they ban them they lose a bunch of the server pops and sub fees when pay play happens.


SE will wait until there is a strong stabil player base that likes the game. Then its financialy sound to ban the rmt so they have to go but a new copy of the game.



Short version. I wouldn't expect to see any mass banings for a few months.

MMO developers don't seem to understand that the more grindy and restricted a game's economy is, the more RMT will flourish.

only reason they they exist is because people playing the game are buying it, if people stop buying it they'll move on. im shocked how in WOW or ffxiv there RMT moneys so easy to get in both.

FFXIV makes it hard to buy and sell. If not for YG I'd never go to the wards. All the convoluted system in place does it make it so people will be more likely to participate in RMT activities. As a player you need a 'insert weapon you want today here'. First of all, good luck finding it (unless you get lucky on YG). Second of all, rare or cool items are off the hook money-wise which encouarages players who will buy gil to BUY GIL. On the other side RMT are even more likely to flourish as the fact that a player driven economy cannot take effect (no reasonable way to sell your goods to earn gil) Therefore their potential for income goes up as more people turn to RMT to buy 'insert weapon you want today here'

So with the gold cap being 214k you were making almost 2½ times the gold cap per day. With gold prices being right around $6-$7 per thousand gold (retail cost) you could have sold your 500k per day for probably $3 per 1k to the gold selling websites and made like $1500.00 a day or like $45,000.00 per month. Just think you could have been making over half a million dollars a year selling gold to gold selling websites.Seems very truthful.

But there can't be RMT in the game. There's no Auction House, remember?:p

I would be curious to know if anyone actually bought gil.

Getting gil in this game is much easier then XI for low levels. Prices of items should continue to drop with more and more people crafting and figuring out the game.

I am not even a high level and I have 1M gil in my pocket, most items I have brought cost about 30-60k each and I have probably spent 1M already. With the demand of crystals so high its easy to get gil at any level. :)

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.

I think SE did a good job lowering RMT in FFXIV. Making gil is so much easier in this game that I don't see nearly as many people buying gil like they do in other MMO's.
