I don't want any gold sinks that cost that much and I also don't want a tax increase for the marketplace. emotion_donotwant Plus I want events to be free to participate in and get items from.

I'm sorry but I had a problem with the bolded part. :l

If there isn't a cost, there isnt a goldsink. And charging everyone 100g isnt a goldsink.

Thing is, if we want to get anywhere we need a sink that everyone has to participate in. I would have preferred a tax increase. Not only that, but the same tax added to trades so that Exchangers can't escape it.

This one is a nice idea. It's a throwback to the original Zurg event which makes some of the old farts happy. I'm indifferent until I see what the prizes are.


        How exactly would Gaia distinguish between a trade made from the exchange to a trade made from the Charities, Art Shops or even from a hoarding mule to a main. Either way, I disagree. In that case exchangers would be paying double: for making the trade, and for selling the item at the exchange.

I've always wondered about that whole buying Gcash items and then getting banned.
Now with the MC's it is explicitly stated that you are "donating" to Gaia.

But is there a little pop up box that shows every time you purchase G cash that its considered a donation?
Because if you do pay for them, they should belong to you.

The only thing I disagree with is the chance raffle to be in event comic. I have seen the future and it don't look pretty.


I agree. For 100m, it should be an autobuy for the manga. Maybe not all in the same one, but in a series.

I don't get the hostility to be honest. People wanted a goldsink, they come out with a really cool goldsink but everyone's still whinging.

Then again I don't understand the extreme levels of upset over gcash, etc. Every moment of every day companies are doing their best to get you to part with your money, it's up to you to decide which products to buy and which to leave on the shelf.

Not even buy, not after results I have seen in the past.

Seriously, lately I find myself buying all the gold items straight from the store, even if theyre cheaper on mp, just to help cut back on all the gold LOL

1 million gold is a lot for me.

I can't draw, I don't get free GC offers and I work so I can't be here 24/7, I play Booty Grab with a track pad on a laptop so the max I make is 1495g per tank. But I can always ignore the event.

To all of those who said it wouldn't work..... I see that we are on what.... day two? And we already have 5b out of the system. +1 optimism.

I would prefer an MP tax hike.

Flynn is not going to go away--period. An MP tax increase and Smashblox nerf are the only permanent solutions. I would say Alchemy could also use a fix to help, but that's just wishful thinking.

except for the fact that it doesn't actually affect everyone. Quite a few people rarely use the MP system, so those who constantly buy/sell are paying for everyone basically. Taxing trades is also a dumb idea, even though you are the one who suggested it. How would you take item trades? Or if someone is going to let a friend borrow items. Meeeeeeeeeeeeh tax is stupid.
