    Lofl just curious. I just saw another post on warcraft and it reminded me of this.

    I use to play that game when I was young, and I remember I had a shitload of gold on it.

    Some people that were really addicted to this game really wanted to have gold badly. I even headr a story once that there are girls (that play wow) that had sex with some guys and asked them to send them gold on warcraft HAHAHH

    Probably there are a couple of guys that play warcraft in this forum so would you or did you ever buy gold on warcraft?

    I totally agree with you 100% but there are people that buy stuff on it for cash. I am not a gamer and never played anything online except this. My friends played it too so it was kinda fun screwing around with people and stuff rofl. I was just wondering cause if I found someone that would actually buy gold for cash I would be a millionaire!

    Fuck man just like me! I used to make fun of my friend because he played it. I tried it and got stuck in it... played it for about 5 months. I didn't play the original though. NO WAY I ain't goin to pay to play a game loooll

    I would not buy gold on wow simply because Blizzard has made the game so pathetically easy that I have more than enough just by doing dailies and such. Not to mention that part of the enjoyment of any game for me is to achieve my own things.

    However, I guess there are some people who do the 'ebay' thing or simply do not grasp the basic concept of how to make money and then need to buy gold. There are a lot of gold selling companies out there like IGE etc and I guess there have to be buyers out there... somewhere.

    Does anybody know the price at which it is being sold?
    For example 10$ for 100 000 Gold on WOW maybe?

    I never did consider this when I played it, I was young and I didn't give a shit about making money those days... I didn't even think I would be making money online at that time lol

    I was a seller of credits in SWG. I used every game flaw/dupe/hack I could find or invent to become a ingame billionare. I would turn around and sell the creds on ebay when they still allowed it and I also sold to the game money exchanges.

    I made about $9k in the span of about 4 months when the game was still new.
    Trick is to get into these games during beta, find as many bugs as you can and don't report them. Also find some good forums like multiplayerstrategies for guides and tips. When the game goes live, you are well equiped to make fast cash when the exchange rate is still very high.

    lol, I bet this will become an e-book sold on dp in about 3 minutes.

    It's illegal according to WOW TOS but people still do it. And yes, I heard stories of someone who hired a bunch of kids in China to play all day to collect Gold, then later monetize it. Could turn into a real dirty business with low labor cost and high return lol :D

    And no..I will NEVER play a game in which you have to PAY every MONTH. That's fucking dumb...You pay for the game + additional for subscription...That's complete utter evil BS!!

    The only game I will play is Diablo 3 (coming out in 2010-ish!) because I was a diehard Diablo 2 guy (was on EU Ladder, top 100 ;D)

    Just do a google search for wow gold... it's a huge business.. I sold it myself for years and made a killing on it.. now there is too much competition so I left.. but before it was nice.. and warcraft was our top seller, tons of people bought gold.. and still do

    I've never played World of Warcraft, and didn't have to. My chinese suppliers gathered the gold for me, and delivered. All I had to do was sell it, and I must say, I'm a good marketer.

    it's a huge business.
    Blizzard, however can track it and will notice large amounts going in and out of accounts.
    A fair few people are banned over it

    Step 1) Pay people peanuts to play wow
    Step 2) Sell the characters
    Step 3) Profit???
