Well it looks like the goldfarmers have arrived in AoW N/A. One of my biggest complaints against the game was the 2 currency system. I felt that having to buy unbound silver pretty much turned me off to the game, while the bound silver was pretty much useless. Someone else came into the thread defending this system, saying it was better for Snail to do it this way to help keep the goldsellers out. However this system isn't working, because they are here spamming chat with buy x amount of silver for x amount of usd. They even have the gall as to go as far as to say buy from them their prices are better than Snail's.
My point is that the two currency system was a bad idea it may work in China, however what works in China doesn't neccessarliy work for the rest of the world. What someone else stated in defense of this system was it prevented goldfarmers from selling the currency. This did not work and will not work because they are going to find away no matter what system is in place. I wish I could take solace in the fact that the game is open pvp, because the player base could deal with them on our own. However that is not the case do to the new player protection, which means they never have to join a school or get to level 5 internal. So killing them is off the table. Sorry for my little rant, just had to get that off my chest.
