This is a no brainer. Don't buy from RMTs. Why?
You'll get caught due to gold spikes/spending sprees.
And why would you waste real money like that? You can earn everything in this game.
Actually for many people there's a very legitimate reason, given that you have no qualms with disrupting the in-game economy for your own benefit, why would you spend 5 hours grinding for 100k gil, when you can say, work one extra overtime hour at work and have the $50 it costs to buy that gil?
That is assuming you make $50/hour after tax, but how much do you make an hour? What's your time worth to you? It all depends.
Then don't play the game if you're going to cheat. RMT's are bad business for any MMO. They steal money from the actual company and you support this? Not only that, but the people who are RMTs end up losing friends due to not wanting to be caught up in the ban wave. It's not hard to spot someone who RMTs. Not to mention that's just being lazy if you don't take the time to I don't know....what's the word I'm looking for....Let me get my dictionary out.
*Flips through pages* Ah here we are. The word is Earn
. I'll put it in a sentence for you.
"When I play Final Fantasy XIV I like to earn
my gold through hard work and crafting."
I mean if you feel the need to buy gold and cheat your way then it's going to show when you get to end-game. You'll have all the gold in the world and probably the most expensive gear, but that won't replace a shred of skill. So please go ahead and buy gold so I can laugh at you when you get banned and when people start reporting you as a bad player.
You better not bring your "RMT is okay." Garbage to my server or I will do everything in my power to get you banned. Edited, Sep 9th 2013 12:36pm by ImmolatedHope
