QOTD: Do You Buy Online Gold for MMOs?

Gamers have been trading virtual gear for the longest time. Farming is also an everyday part of MMO life.

Gold selling however, really became mainstream when World of Warcraft hit the scene several years ago. Many WoW players feel the grind to big piles of gold simply take too long. Blizzard however, feels that buying gold takes away from the game, ruins it for other players and is generally a security risk.

Blizzard has been trying to put a stop to gold selling for a long time. Unfortunately for it, selling still persists and is still very much a popular way to get quick mountains of gold. Of course, besides gold, you can also buy online accounts and even gear. However, you can always be an honest player and grind your way to gold the normal way.

The question of the day is: Do you--or have you--buy online gold in MMOs like World of Warcraft?

    Never have, never will. It's cheating and it's funding the people who hack your accounts.

    Nope. I have sold gold through Live Gamer before though (that's a legalized website on two of Everquest 2's servers, soon to be on Vanguard: SOH too).
