I'm not really elbowing my way into making gold, I was asking to chart the waters, tickets are how I made my very first 1-2 million, and I remember it being slow, but I saw you were aiming for 2 million tickets and that's already a profitable amount of tickets. If you had been able to collect more tickets in a shorter time, I would've considered it but first I would've asked you if we can make some kind of a deal, work together or something. I'm not in the habit of just going and stealing someone else's business, I guess that's why I'm not one of the super rich Gaians. I do want to make gold but not at the expense of making enemies or ruining anyone else's chances at making gold.


I made most of my money originally by fishing, but the casino wasnt out back then. And then front exchanging.

Some kind of deal? I dont see any deal that would be profitable to me, unles it was pooling resources for buying power, but atm I could buy over 6m tickets at my price. So Im okay on resources.

Yeah, I dont really exchange anymore because Im not mean or heartless enough. Mainly I buy the expensive items noone can sell for cheapish prices, and then just wait for them to sell for what they should, because I dont need to make fast gold. Compared to many of my friends or people with accounts my age I would be considered poor. But I think I am okay, not poor, not rich.


Pooling resources, taking turns, whatever works. All I meant was that I ask first, talk to people, and don't just take over. If I was as ruthless as some people here, I would probably have made my first 100 million a long ago. At the moment, I don't know when I'm even going to get to 50 million, because I don't take shortcuts. At the moment I just pretty much make and sell caches (though they sell really slowly). After turning the next batch of caches into gold, I'll probably go back to exchanging. It's not really heartless to profit from your own patience after buying stuff for cheaper from people who are in a hurry to get rid of it. The people make their own choices, they don't have to accept the lowball offers, no one forces them. What's really heartless is snatching mispriced items, which luckily is going to get at least a bit harder with the new big red letters making sure you double/triple check the price before committing.

By the way, those big red letters in the MP listing submission confirmation screen are compliments of yours truly, from a few ATAs ago. If I was in the business of making gold the ruthless way possible, I doubt I would've been the person to make sure that the snatching of mispriced items is cultivated out of Gaia. smile

Sorry for the huge text about... myself, apparently XD I won't fill your thread anymore, and I'll delete my posts if you wish me to. ^^; Good luck on your ticket collection!

Yeah I saw that I frequent ATAs when I can. I just do it on my main. (I have a main main, and then another account which takes care of all business matters, my main stays away from it to avoid the random begging snarky exchangers etc). That being said, out of my last 1000 posts (Ignoring the talk like a pirate race) probally over 900 have been this account (mainly Im a guilder not a public forumer).

If you get gold max on booty grab and zomg every day for a year you will have over 73m just from that.

Yeah, if you have flash, if flash works on your system/computer, if it doesn't crash your system when trying to BG or zOMG!, etc. Sure. I don't have that luxury, so I have to make my gold through vending/alchemy. I don't complain though, I can make gold with it, not as fast as I'd like, but then again... No one should really be that greedy after pixel gold. xP

If I cared more for gold, I probally would still do zOMG and booty grab, but I dont care enough to be bothered about it. Mainly I hoard these days, passive, relativly easy and not overly personal.

Just like I play rigs for fun...I played 9 bundles. Luckily I only lost like 2 - 3 mill on playing them.

xP RIGs suck. I did one today, not a bundle, just a single one. It's a 1000:1 chache that you'll ever get even/win in RIGs if you don't spend dozens of millions on them and even then it's pretty likely you'll end up losing gold. You'd honestly most likely have better luck beating one of the casinos in Vegas xD Gaia chances in everything are insanely low, which makes Alchemy basically one huge RIG, only one with better chances than any of the actual RIGs.

Rigs are profitable if you buy them before they open (advance chances) and sell them when they open....or a couple months later.

opening is pretty much guarenteed loss. Since rigs have existed, I have probally lost about 30m on opening rigs. Which is a good chunk of my worth...but with the rate I make gold it means usually I dont take a hit...I just dont move forward as fast, which is okay, because its all for fun anyways.

I tend to avoid asumptions, I wait until I colaberate sufficient data before making formulated decisions XD

Im a very observational nerd. I also majored in Behavioural ecology (which whislt it mainly focuses on non-human animals, the strict rules for observational research can be applied to humans)

So in short, in science if you make asumptions you get crushed, so Ive learnt to avoid most asumptions people make in general.
