@Syntax12345Yep! You know how I've managed to avoid being sucked into the AH?i haven't fucking used it. Shit, I've only looked at it once. It's not hard to avoid it. You just do.
This is asinine. They're not doing anything unethical here.
If you're too stupid to understand that you're predisposed to addiction (getting addicted to a videogame is fucking pathetic, by the way) then it's nobody's fault but your own if you get hooked and lose money because of it.
Stop blaming others for your own inadequacies or immaturity.
It's true they aren't actively forcing you.
But I feel that gaming doesn't need to become more similar to gambling, with reward loops and sums of money getting involved. Of course gambling is legal in most of the free world, and you can say that no one forces you to do it, but there are people addicted to gambling. And I don't think that's OK.
It's all just a question of ethics to me, and my personal opinion.
