1000 of my hard earned Coppers are now Up for sale on eBay

Post by hpbifta » 11 Dec 2006 03:05

Yup I finally did it. I got 1000 coppers and got bored and didn`t know what I would do with them so they are now up for sale on eBay. If anybody wants em the bidding starts at £1. Also send me a message in game so I know who to send them to using the in-game message system.

:)

the eBay item number is 250060007388 to make your search nice and easy.

or just click Here to go straight there!

It takes me 13 days to earn more than that, and thats without creating anything... :?

It was only a matter of time before some player tried making money off the in game coppers...

(Did I say Wow, WOW...)

Gonna get my kids farming gold...They gotta have a dozen characters between em...hehehe

By daddy a new PC ;P

BUT, Coppers won't buy you Dalgrens WarHammer, DarkWing-Elven/Centaur mount, or even a nifty dispersion spell, for those troublesome rounds racers...

Maybe somebody will think there real copper and offer you for something for scrap metal >?

Isn't that illegal? I know that in some games you can get banned for selling gold/credits/money on ebay ^^

hp, your attempt is anything original to my eyes. I've been expecting someone doing that since the very beginning.
At least you put a bid and not a fixed price, and I despise you less because of this.
I guess Florent or others from Nadeo may come up clearing to you some sentences of those "terms of service" you agreed with when you installed the game...

Zooz <- Virtually it should be illegal in every online game (World of Warcraft, Guild Wars and the like), but very real nonetheless.
To my knowledge, Diablo II built up the hugest illegal market of this type, with dozens of websites providing items and characters for money. Blizzard could do very little to prevent or reduce this.

Yes, it seems to be a general rule about that. Especially in MMORPG's like WoW, GW blablabla..
If you sell something to another person and you profit(IRL :lol:) from it's illegal I guess.

WoW has really taken over this, people buy wow-gold like crazy, and selling/ buying accounts on eBay. I sold my account too for 460$(!) some time ago, so it's too easy to profit from this.

Ugh, there are very morbid players out there...

I'm thinking about giving a chance to my GW account, having I to upgrade some components of my PC. :)

I play GW a lot, I often see people spamming about selling accounts for lots of in-game gold. That's getting more and more common. Now that's illegal :P

İf you can buy coopers like this people with money will be happy and people who creates because they will have rich clients
^^thats the good side
Now the prices will jump like buyers are richer builders will take up the prices and so it will go like this but builders of midle quality will be the loosers rich will not buy their product and they will not be able to buy

:arrow: it can not continue like this we must hope that there will not be a lot of buyer off this coopers this is a game you pay money once to buy it not to continue playing
