Nah, not really.
You use the in game currency to make your character cool, but nowadays you can just buy items with real money. It didn't used to be like that, and your character would have been in rags about five years ago, but a lot has changed over the years, and most people think it's for the worst, ahaha. This is no longer as fun a place to hang around as it used to be. The game's turned into more of a money machine, oddly enough.
Sadly, there are still aspects of it that keep me here. I have met some of the most talented writers I know on here, I met Ben here, and many of my very good friends.
