    So I've just received my newsletter from BHW in my inbox and it has some info for Ungagged 2015 and how you can earn £100. I've got no problem with that at all.
    However, what I think it totally bonkers is then advertising a shitty method from the making money session in the same email. The thread in question is this one http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-200-day-playing-video-game-not-guide-8.html
    As shown by W130SN who posted the actual details, they were so scant you'd think it had been ripped from a WSO or posted on some rubbish blog from 2008.

    With the wealth of excellent threads that are being started lately (t0mmy's in particular have all been bang on and have helped so many people), it just seems strange to me that the admins would send out an email trying to drum up sales for a worthwhile, albeit expensive experience but then also include a naff 'method' in the same email.

    Have you even worked with selling game currency for money?

    Its a HUGE business and if you can farm gold in a game you can make $100/hour with the help of vps, bots, and accounts for the game being farmed.

    The OP of tht thread told me the EXACT method even the best type of character to use.

    Why did he not post it on the thread? OP said he did not want it to get out all crazy where the other 6 million+ WoW players would begin doing the method and then it would be dead within days.

    I myself was farming games 4-5 years ago and managed to make $20 a day from 1 account on 1 game.

    You can EASILY scale that up.

    OP is calling a good and working method shit.

    The OP of the thread in question only provided the full method to a few people so I guess that means the whole method is shit lol.

    Asap, did you see the method that the OP sent to a member, who then sent it to W130SN?
    Just in case you haven't, here it is:

    Hey there.


    Basically, You farm epic BoE on WoW and sell it on Auction house. These BoE's sell for around 20-50k each and you can get one every 30 minutes or so if you're good at it. Make a LFR group for heroic blackrock trash. Call it a list group so people get loot in the order they joined.


    When loot drops, loot it since you're first (it's your turn to loot). Then stick around for a couple minutes or just leave immediately and put the epic BoE on AH while starting another group.


    Rinse and repeat for a few hours and you will have a few hundred thousand gold in no time! Find private buyers in chat to sell your gold. You decide the rate. I charge $50 per 100k because thats standard. You can do lower or higher.


    It would be great if you could put a thanks on my post. This way I know people care.


    Good luck!

    With you saying that he's only sending the full method to certain people, that's even more reason not to have that crappy thread in an email to the whole mailing list. For him to send the rubbish above to the majority of people, it's a bloody joke. With him saying in his original post that it involves WOW and gold, you'd expect what he was going to share with everyone that PM's him to be more than the basic information that he gave out to people which is on par with what you'd find in a Google search.

    Gaming is serious business yo.

    More than film industry.

    C.O.C company SUPERCELL, earning $2,000,000+ every 24 hours.

    Gaming it just like doing DRUG. It increase dopamine.

    Anything that touch dopamine in your brain, is a serious business.

    Regardless of how much the gaming industry is worth, I doubt the most valuable share on this forum is a method on how to get gold in WOW.

    It seems like to me if you have a complaint with the newsletter or a recommendation then the best course of
    action would be to shoot over a message to those in charge of it, or send in a message through the send a message
    form. Maybe I am wrong, but if someone does have what you deem a problem it's nice to address it where the whole
    consensus doesn't hit on it.

    I am pretty positive those in charge would like some feedback on how their subscribers feel about the letters being sent. :)

    Agree with you OP, the thread you mentioned is pure shit but I suppose it appeals to kids, as you say some of the recent t0mmy threads would help people more, unfortunately I think threads might be auto included in the emails because of the number of views or comments (unsure) or unless it was just chosen to appeal to the lowest IQ

    He also sent me the same method.

    now, PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE METHOD?

    Yes he did not put it out in the open for everyone but saying the method is shit is 100% wrong.

    That method can make hundreds a day and if you have a bot you can make thousands with only 2-3 accounts.

    I agree the way he dealt with putting the method out was not the best but I also understand why he did that.

    You cant say the method is shit just because he did not paste it in the OP.

    Do you understand how much 100k WoW gold is worth in REAL LIFE MONEY?

    These days online currency is worth REAL MONEY, its a entire market for it for EVERY MMO.

    What we are saying is, where is the method? We all know money can be made with in-game currency and if you search google there are numerous guides and tutorials on how to do it (in reality, the real money was being made 3 years ago) but the OP of that thread did not provide a method, all he said was mine gold! WTF

    He sent out the method to people who pmed him just like he said he would. I guess he stopped after x-xx pms.

    If he posted the method in the OP it would get flooded to hell not just from the people on BHW by the other millions of WoW players looking to make gold.

    I guarantee not 1 person has tried the method or made money from it.

    Look up Chinese gold farming and you will see stories going back 5-10 years. They have whole sweat shops dedicated to this, they even use prisoners to mine for gold.

    I am not really a gamer, but yes I appreciate there is still money to be made but the real money will be made by those that have an understanding of economics.
    Look up WoW Inflation

    The Value of Gold just seems to be falling

    But if you have 50 bots running you could still make around $450/hour farming gold

    How many bots are you running? Did you make $450 per hour?
    The problem with the original thread is that people thank it and say great method but don't even try it.
    The whole thing is theoretical until somebody proves they have made money using the method.
    I am not saying you can't make money but I am highly suspicious that the author of the original thread has made ANY money from it as he did not provide a method, he said "Basically, You farm epic BoE on WoW and sell it on Auction house." Which isn't a method in my book. Go to any WoW Gold Mining site and you will see proper methods.

    That is per 1k gold....

    You can make 50k - 100k gold and hour with 1 account which is still $50 - $100 a hour if per k sells for $1.

    You can get another account set up for what $50 - $100 and make that back in 1 hour.....

    The reason gold prices are dropping is because people find ways to farm more gold faster and faster via bots, multiple accounts, and better farming methods.

    Its happening to every MMO, I dont know any MMO that is increasing in value.
