Quote from: Sairek Ceareste on Dec 08, 2023, 01:42 AMUsually the people who are doing RMT are botting as well, which can impact the market. This is definitely so when it comes to larger scale games like actual big-name MMOs such as Runescape as was mentioned previously.

These are not, nor will ever be, the same, and the level of toxicity the latter kind of player brings is telling.
Quote from: ForgotMyOldAccount on Dec 08, 2023, 12:40 AMIf you think normal players doing this "for fun" instead of money aren't getting incredibly toxic and salty in-game, you are frankly just wrong. I know many annoying and disgruntled players who get upset over losing with NO IRL stakes involved. You seriously overvalue the mental health of gamers who turn to Ragnarok Online for an outlet from their rather stressful lives.
Quote from: 2k2 on Dec 08, 2023, 09:43 AMRegular players are also the kind of be more prone to report bugs and exploits to help the game become better and help in the long-term, whereas the trashy RMTer will 100% be exploiting it looking for quick gains despite knowing how much it's hurting the game and its future.
Quote from: ForgotMyOldAccount on Dec 08, 2023, 02:38 AMYes, exactly. But the issue is botting itself which requires more rigorous in-house security tools and cheating prevention software, not actual RMT. If players couldn't bot then RMT wouldn't be an issue to begin with. Classic case of attributing blame to the wrong issue.
Quote from: 2k2 on Dec 08, 2023, 09:43 AMIn the past few years, it seems to be getting more and more common and accepted on brazillian and Russian non-RO game servers where the staff has their own RMT channels and fully allow players to either sell directly to other players (at their own risk, scamming allowed, so trade at your own risk), or with the staff mediating it where it's the only safe way to do it.Beyond disgusting. Hopefully gravity burns the private server scene down before this sh*t arrives at RO.
Quote from: Metan on Dec 08, 2023, 10:57 AM[...]I wouldn't be surprised if it's already a thing in RO, and it simply isn't known to the general public due to a language barrier. As an example, I know some SEA servers actually host seasonal WoEs and they reward winning guilds with hard cash, in dollars, which, to my knowledge, is restricted to them (for now?).I don't think Gravity will move an inch to stop this, as long as their IP isn't endangered.
