Idea to (help) stop USD spenders (in General)

[Beo]AggroHippie June 20 2008 1:30 AM EDT

I was reading through the MoD Change log, (which I'm interested in...) and saw rangers post on not wanting to have to disenchant for 50% and then BS the new item and essentially losing a massive amount of ability to deal damage. so, why not make the X and + modifiers of weapons into a skill... it would stop people from pumping USD into weapons. I would imagine this would not something that would fit into the skill slot, but make it something that can be trained while a weapon is equipped. call it weapon proficiency. As much as I would like to try out this MoD, I dont want to pay $6 USD and then get ~2mil to up it to a decent level to figure out if I like it or my BoTh more...

at any rate, this was just an idea that popped into my head...

anyone wish to comment?

Where does the money go?

Also, the extension of this path is to completely remove CBD, and simply convert all armours to that same sort of system. Which is... yuck. To me anyway.

Do you really think Jonathon wants to stop USD spenders? What do you think funds the game?

Nose, to pump usd into weapons, for the most part, players have to buy CBD from other players. Jon doesn't sell CBD yet.... (and I really really hope it stays that way!). Though I'm not sure Hippie's solution is a great one, the idea behind it is solid. It would be great if there we're an easier way to try a different strat OR the same strat with a different weapon.
On a side note, everyone has to realize what a massive dent jon has put in the USD market by making the very items that people were paying top (REAL MONEY) dollar for much more readily available.
There's more to say but I'm feeling unmotivated at the moment and am sure someone else will pick it up.
But again Hippie, not a "bad" idea in my bloodshot eyes.

"Do you really think Jonathon wants to stop USD spenders? What do you think funds the game? "

Players trading between each other, he doesn't get anything. USD spending refers to buying CB cash, not really namings/supporter items.
