So hey, MTX Team...You hear what's been going down in Belgium, Hawaii and Victoria right now?

Might want to start considering either retooling some of this as stuff to sell in Solomons or earn in game...or, failing that, perhaps consider checking with some employment agencies. Just saying.

Wishing someone to lose their job because they are doing a Job is just wrong.

Also, what do you think the odds are that anything will be done about it? I mean if you want to get into that, just look at Trading card games. Should packages now be required to show you what it has in it? no more random chance? no more fun in opening 10 packs at a time?


At this point, I'm too jaded and cynical to even care. If they're completely willing to further contribute to the erosion of my once-upon-a-time-favorite game, and get rich off it, then while I'm not actively WISHING for them to lose their jobs, I'm not going to have even the faintest flicker of sympathy. They chose this path, they knew what would happen when (not if) the bubble burst, and yet they still walked that road anyway, despite the risks.

Also, that trading card thing is a complete false equivalency. While admittedly the online TGCs are a bit closer to it, with physical card games at least you actually get some physical goods for it that won't evaporate into the ether once the servers die.

Seriously, the types of games are completely different. Also, there's the fact that Most of these TCGs are free to play initially and buying cards is their way of monetising, unlike Jagex with them double dipping with both the subscription model AND the MTX chicanery.
