I am amazed at the amount of support and defense for Anet over the way they have decided to maximize their profits through lottery system. Yes it is a business and they are in here to make money but is it the only way? by feeding of the addiction of players?
The very same people who are defending Anet over this are the same people who would in past rip anything apart as long as it included word 'cash shop' . (yes posting history is a great thing)
The fact is that if Anet had made these new items available through halloween activities they would gain no profit out of it. That is why selling keys or selling gems which can be converted to gold, in both situtaion Anet makes big profits.
Now before someone says 'you are not entitled' or 'it is not needed'...for me it is more of a moral issue than anything else. I don't like what MMOS have been reduced to in current times.
My question is simple, would you defend this lottery system / gambling involving real life cash if it was any other company say Bioware, Crytpic, Funcom or SOE? if not then why Anet gets free pass on everything? why such blatant double standards by the community?
