By saying this is currently the best answer - this means it's not going to be permanent, am I right? If it is permanent then I fail to see how Dragon Saga differs from games like Conquer Online, Eudemons Online, etc which are entirely cash shop dependant games - being that if you don't put any of your money into the IM you're screwed and won't ever have the same game experience as someone who can afford to dump hundreds of dollars down the drain. It simply isn't fair and I honestly believe that cash-shop dependant MMOs shouldn't even fall into the category of being "free". This is going to create a completely unfair gameplay experience, even moreso than it is unfair now with players being unable to obtain the better heirloom sets for certain classes since the switch from THQ to Gravity (or whatever it was).

Although I can understand.. I suppose.. How this would prevent scamming, but really - it'd be better for the health of the gaming society within Dragon Saga who don't have the money to put into IM points to educate the masses about gold scam websites. :/

This post makes a whole lot more sense than your plan to "Fix" gold sellers. I just lost one of the biggest arguments I had for recruiting people to come play. Now we're just like every other no name "free" mmo where you have to pay money to do ANYTHING even close to endgame.

Btw, thanks for screwing with the economy. So far...

Introduction of randomizers => economy gets :D => stabilizes after a while => randomizers taken away => economy gets -_- => stabilizes after a while, although still -_- => reintroduced randomizers => economy gets -_- softly => this change => economy gets :( hard.

NO. If they let that happen they're going to lose hundreds of players. The market is going to go to hell in a hand basket.

I cannot believe they're ignorant enough to truly believe that eliminating the trade of IM consumables is going to in anyway help this game. It might help their pockets, sure - but it's not going to help the game. DS is just going to become like every other "free" MMO.

It's unacceptable.

So why don't they LISTEN? If I understand correctly they've lost a lot of numbers switching over to WP, so why make matters worse? Why not become their own kind of free game instead of submitting to the will of their IAH predecessors? At this rate with MOST MMOs it's less expensive to just buy a game from a store instead of try your hand at playing an allegedly free one.

I'm not even so sure it'll help their bottom line. Huge amounts of consumables are purchased just to resell for gold, at pretty bad rates too. You'd think there would be a less drastic way to deal with the portion that is fraudulent (which from what I've observed, was done by possibly just 1, and certainly a very small number, of entities).

Crack down on the selling end of it maybe? I'm sure the gold is traceable and I'm pretty sure buying gold from the sellers is against the rules too.

I agree with this, there's only one place I've ever noticed the spam for gold trading and that was in POTW on CH3 and it was only ever one account sitting there spamming - there HAVE to be other ways to deal with this. Unless they're using someone getting their credit card information stolen (for being an idiot, I might add, and using one of these websites) as an excuse to impliment an IM run in-game market.

If anything this will do nothing but bad for Warp Portal. Not only are they losing players -right now- they're also going to lose revenue now that the people funding them are no longer buying insurances and randomizers for other people to sell on the market.

I've been a devout player, but this is making -me- have second thoughts.

Even WoW has gold sellers. You can't defeat them, especially not by screwing over your player base.

I keep accidentally writing essays on why this is a bad idea, so I'll just say this is a bad idea and hope everyone else reasons for me.
