First of all I dislike them, but thankfully I have a choice to not use them or simply not play games that are build around it.
Are they really that bad?
Have we forgotten somethings? things like those thousands if not millions of 3rd party websites offering gold/credits/characters/items and what not?
I saw some person saying he left Fallen Earth due to it having 2 items in their cashshop, yet that person said he was returning to EVE which has numerous websites where you can buy any type of item/ship/character but that seems to be completely ignored. The same does go for about any MMORPG.
Regardless that I dislike cash shops I rather have gamecompany's to offer the items then some shoddy 3rd party site, that way atleast the money goes to the developers instead of just going who knows where your money is going to.
Do people who for some reason have these so-called principles against Cash Shops totally forgotten the goldscammers?
I am not saying that due to ingame cash shops that those cheaters have become less, but as said rather have the gamecompany's that offer a MMORPG to have the money that people seem willing to spend regardless.
My reason when disliking cash shops is when the items or what ever are better then what can be found ingame by pure playing it, but then again how is that different when people even without ingame cash shops still are able to buy their stuff thru 3rd party sites?
Still I dislike both Cash shops and 3rd party sites, but my main question is " Do you rather have a gamecompany get your money or are you okay with games that don't have cashshops but have millions of 3rd party site offering often allot more then what we can find in cash shops"?
