    You aren't winning cash prizes. You also dont technically own anything in the games, so in reality you are really just giving simu money for the chance to use something.

    It'd never fly in a court room because the argument may be made that it's more of a prize machine.

    Also, you're pathetic and nobody takes you seriously. So there's that.

    Like I said, I don't agree with sellstuff. That being said, even carnival games are required to meet specific guidelines and are inspected. There's no denying that more states will be pushing for legislation on this stuff and small companies like SIMU will have to find another way to attract consumers. The government tends to not go easy on industries that target minors and people with behavior disorders.

    Not sure why you'd create a false statement by me and put it in your signature. Seems kinda creepy...

I seriously doubt they care but I feel better about it!
    I bailed for the same reasons. Canceled all other accounts, keep my main open for transactions and possibly BS farming for cash if i feel bored. Other than that, game has been ruined steadily over the last few years.


    Why? Because racecar.

    Actually put the money GS that makes back into, you know, GS. Hire coders, advertise, that sort of thing.

    If this happened, I'm pretty sure almost everything I've ever even briefly complained about would either go away or at least I'd be 100% at peace with it.

    This will never happen exactly for the reason that people continue to play. Wyrom is a “spreadsheet man” he probably has hundreds of excel spreadsheets with all sorts of data thinking it’ll tell him the inner thoughts of his players. Thus, as long as people continue to sub and pay hundreds if not thousands on EG or Dusk, he thinks the game is perfect and WAI.

    Furthermore, I’m certain he has already singled out 100 top spending accounts based on SC purchases, # of accounts, whatever. He’s trying to make this game for them as well as you. Money vs. Fun. Money vs. balance. Money vs. Longevity.

    To Wyrom’s credit, it’s hard. Also, this is his livelihood. If he fails to squeeze out all that he can from us he loses his paycheck, his insurance, whatever. Wyrom obviously can’t go on “HotGamerBimbos.com” to make ends meet, just judging by his physique. I don’t blame what he’s doing to the game personally. I just hope he has enough foresight, skill, and business acumen to navigate this ship to graze the iceberg and not ram it head-on.

    State laws consider it a Class C misdemeanor to participate in gambling as a player outside of licensed facilities. Section 527.020 of the Missouri Revised Statutes lays it out plainly:

    572.020. 1. A person commits the crime of gambling if he knowingly engages in gambling.

    Gambling is a class C misdemeanor unless:
    (1) It is committed by a professional player, in which case it is a class D felony; or

    (2) The person knowingly engages in gambling with a minor, in which case it is a class B misdemeanor.

    A Class C misdemeanor in Missouri results in up to 15 days of jail time. It becomes a more serious Class D felony if you are considered a “professional” gambler with up to four years in jail.

    So the players themselves are breaking the law in Missouri by participating in events like DSD and sewers. The major players are committing felonies.
    Still hoping you post your specific complaint to the MGC and the FTC regarding Simutronics.

    Come on, I'm sure it's legit.

    Just post it.

    Most of my complaints would go away too. Although, I would still hate their pricing and microtransaction system.

    In this regard, Wyrom reminds me of Ghostcrawler from way back when I played World of Warcraft. The community loved to blame him for everything but he was just the community relations guy. He didn't control the entire game, he was just an easy target.

    Still, it wouldn't kill Wyrom or the other GMs to talk to the community more, explain things more, or take and use feedback. We might have been able to avoid the nightmare that was the Wizard nerf if that had happened.
