I Am Going to Try Harder to Explain Why the Fantage Developers Are Being Dumb
I made a post previously and yet people still don’t fully agree.
So there are some people saying, “Fantage is business! They can make more money this way! It’s unfair how nons can get stuff without spending a penny!” And others are saying “well now there will be less scammers!”
We all know Fantage is business. Here’s the thing: They don’t just make money from membership. Plenty of other people buy gold, and I’ve seen people purchase gold instead of membership. Why? Because they like gold more than membership. Just because they’re not a member, doesn’t mean they have not supported the company before.
Now, if you do not allow users who do not pay monthly to have a “member” status on Fantage, they will feel less inclined to play it. No one wants to play a game where a company greedily asks for cash or you have no benefits.
I love Nintendo. Their games are fantastic. However, they did have a history of being bastards trying to squeeze more money from others! They content ID’d Youtube channels that played their games, or even reviewed it! That’s completely uncalled for, because they took no part in the video besides for being the creators of the game. They also barely spend time developing their games as well as before. As much as I’d love to play their games, I don’t feel inclined to support them.
Do you kinda see where I’m getting at? Sure, I still love their content, but I do not want to pay them all because they are greedy. Besides, being able to sell and buy items in MyMall was mainly why majority of the users on Fantage played it. Heck, I got premium membership a couple of times so I can increase my profits. I was thinking of getting another one soon, but now that Fantage is being greedy and unfair, I refuse to support their company now. Do you see the impact the developers are having now? This isn’t increasing their profits. They are getting people like myself to feel like we should stay away from that website.
Also, some people have just been playing for a long time, so of course they’re going to have good items and try selling off the ones they don’t need. Before I became a member, I had a crap ton of items that are worth a lot, just because I played since 2011. Oh, and some people are gullible enough to buy free items, but that’s their fault.
Now, let’s talk about scamming! The biggest reason why Fantage placed these restrictions! YAAAY!
…From what I’ve heard, the popular items haven’t had an increase on minimum price. LOL. And y’know, members can scam too… I’ve heard of members who scam. They exist. Just because they spend money, doesn’t mean they’re less likely to… (But it’s true that majority of scammers are nons.)
BUT YOU KNOW, WE COULD ALL DO WHAT MARINA SAYS: NO TRADE NO PROBLEM!
OR FANTAGE COULD ADD AN ACTUAL TRADING SYSTEM, BUT HAVE BOTH PARTIES PAY GOLD. FANTAGE WILL STILL MAKE MONEY BECAUSE YOU’RE SPENDING GOLD. IT WILL BE QUICK AND EFFICIENT, NO ONE WILL GET SCAMMED BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE THE TWO PARTIES SEE WHAT THEY’RE GETTING BEFOREHAND.
Also mini rant: I don’t hate scammers. Sure what they’re doing is rude and stuff, but it’s kinda the victim’s fault for trading with someone they just met. The risks are there, are you all so gullible? I’ve been through shit worse than being scammed of virtual money, (like rumours about me sending nudes to random guys on the internet, when it’s false) and I’m sure it applies to many other people. Welcome to the real world folks, not everyone is going to be nice. I understand if you’ve became close friends with someone and they take everything from you, but really most of these victims just trust any offers they get.
If you still have further complaints, I’d LOVE to debate with you. Please tell me if there are any reasons why this should have happened. I say more benefits to members instead, don’t remove them from nons!
