Buying dbs isn't a crime.

TQ trading off everything on Conquer Online for money is the real crime.

Having fun shouldn't be about money, it should be about the challenge.

Sorry to break it to you this way... The majority of the people over here cannot sit on their chair and no life all day long. We actually have stuff to do, such as work, school etc. In the end, the amount of game play we both have is about the same.

Don't put your own scenario onto me, kthx

We both lost money. You don't understand the concept I've put forth, proving only that you need to play conquer less and study more
Lulz, Do you really believe your own words? The ironic part in your entire concept is the fact you make it sound like you either work or spend your entire day playing Conquer. There's nothing inbetween, aye?

I'll say it once more. The majority of the people over here cannot no life on Conquer the way you put it. They either work, school etc. In the end, the playtime we both have is about the same.

Also, that the DB buyers are playing less than the none db buyers is just bull****. Just look at how much you've fked up the game already and there's more to come. TQ could always run the game. They realized there were people like you out there so they kept making more pay to win updates, see how far it went. GG, you nuubz ruined a good game.

For those who want to know. I've made $800 profit by selling my old gear. I currently have 300 bp, never bought a single DB. I've been on around 10 minutes alltogether at the last 5 GWs, outside GW I'm always afk lvlin nix, whenever I cba to stay logged on. I also pwn 95% of my server at SSing.
Irl: School, Also having my hobby/sport as my work outside school.

For those who says "Who cares if they buy DBs, it's their money!" Well, It's true. If you saw a random spending money irl you wouldn't care, right? However, if you saw a random spending money on a gun he later shot you with, different story, huh? That's exactly what they do on CO.

I, like everyone else don't give a **** about what they spend money on long as it doesn't effect us. Too bad it does effect us, otherwise you wouldn't spend money on this game

I have spoken, kthx

Yah, sorry... I'd rather Play4Fun vs Play2Win.

I don't no-life to get gears.
I don't no-life to level up.
I don't take conquer over real life.

I play in my spare time and I afk in TG/Market when I'm away. When I'm in the market I merchant - I've made around 80 million silvers for absolutely nothing, gained countless exp for absolutely nothing, and I've still never spent a dime on this game.

Your example:

You spend 80 hours a day working irl to make DBs on CO. I spend 80 hours in game to make DBs on CO. After... let's say.... 6 months. I have full -5 1 soc gear, without buying a single DB. You have maxed out +12 2 soc -7 gear.

We both decide to quit at the same time. You sell the gear for way less than half of what they were bought for. I sell my gear aswell.

What's the difference? I've made a profit out of CO. You haven't. All those hours working for nothing, lawlz. GG BOIIII

Buying DBs saves you time

Buying DBs saves you money

If you've spent 80 hours a month playing CO and have never bought DBs, that's not something to brag about.

If you've spent $16 a month and 10 hours playing CO you'll have better gear than the person above, and be saving money.

80 hours of playing is 80 hours lost that you could have worked for money
80 hours of work (at least in California) translates into $640 (tax already deduced) at a minimum wage job. That's 200 DBs. You will never gain 200 DBs by playing CO for 80 hours, but you will if you worked, instead of played. Spending money on conquer is more efficient that actually playing it.

The amount of time it takes to make 5 dbs IRL is way faster than the amount of time it takes to make 5 DBs in CO. So to make fun of people for buying DBs is making fun of someone who's doing something that's more efficient than you

So by saying "oh i've never bought dbs" and you have full socket, that just makes you a loser.

start crying forum and prove me right

lets get an example going:

lets take 2 guys. We're going to take 100 hours out of their month to devote completely to conquer.

1st guy: spends all 100 hours playing conquer
2nd guy: spends all 100 hours working to make money to buy DBs

Guess who made more money in conquer?
Guess who got evicted, utilities turned off, and children taken away for not feeding them. Some people here have financial responsibility. In any case, I buy them when I can, but that's rare.

to take the logic of the original poster even further, someone who takes that time, and earns money to invest in something that continues to produce income, instead of buying virtual items that lose their value faster than used cars, is being even MORE efficient.

but conquer is a recreational activity, and efficiency is not the issue. enjoyment is. if playing conquer isn't something you enjoy, by all means, do something else. there are lots of choices out there.

the second reborn quest is a good case in point: it is no doubt far easier to pay the dbs, and buy an exemption token. it's obviously less wasteful of time, and for people with limited leisure time at their disposal, there is a certain logic to paying the money to save the time. the thing is, you don't get to have the experience of the quest itself. and, in the end, the game is nothing more and nothing less than the collection of experiences you have had playing it.

now, more and more, conquer is populated with people who just can't wait for dessert. my god, they feel as if they are practically FORCED to bot, because who can possibly endure the tedium, of actually killing things to level? srsly. today's conquer players want instant gratification: boom! 2nd-3rd day, i'm 2nd rb, all geared up, and ready to act like the big man i can never be in the real world.

this is what dismays many of the veterans who have not yet abandoned the game they used to love. there is no sense of exploration or discovery anymore. what's to discover? you get your things, go to GW area, and kill people. isn't that what CO is all about?

of course, someone has to buy the dragonballs. and the orginal "progression of threes" wriiten into the base structure of CO, has ensured that costs have risen exponentially, creating a two-tiered game. if you buy dbs, and by this i mean LOTS of dbs, you can play with the big boys. the rest of you can settle for (bound) gears and licking your wounds on world chat.

it was one thing, when buying dragonballs gave you an advantage, and quite another now when they purchase a kind of immunity. making a game that advertises its "many skills" a forum for display of economic werewithall is not what some think they are signing up for. and it has clearly divided what was once a strong community.

no, buying dbs is not a crime. and technically, using them to e-bully other people in a game isn't a crime, either. but it should be.
