Nearly 80% of the new folks we take in gold wow classic appear to prove to be golden farmers. (I feel that the gold farmers are more widespread as they use WoW as a project and bounce between scripting and really controlling their toon) We’ve never gotten some kick backs from such personalities but we usually take just two raids to determine they’re golden sellers to be able to kick them from guild.
I had exactly the exact same tinfoil hat type of conspiracy but I’ve given up on this plot. Reason being is personally I’m at a semi hardcore guild and in this stage in classic it’s very hard to discover new people coming raiders so when some unguided 60’s want in to get a trial raid spot we are forced to try them out.
But why can they willingly eliminate 1/5 of the player population when they can continue to make millions from individuals abusing their imaginary currency for real cash. From a PR perspective it’s the biggest shit-filled smack in the face to the participant base, from an economic perspective it’s the easiest money they’ll ever make.
Looking forward to starting new largely to get an economy that is not f’ed up. And also start banning RMTers.
If you want this kind of environment, pservers are the buy wow classic gold only area you’ll find it. You absolutely will not get it from blizzard. If you or anyone else wants information on a new vanilla pserver with proven and trustworthy management launching at the near-moderate future, pm me.
