I sort of feel your pain mall405a... and I do mean sort of. I remeber momentarily thinking the exact same thing the first time I puchased the electronic credits. I stopped myself quickly, thinking: I am turning real money into imaginary electronic money. It no longer has value outside of a fictional, digital world. I am a captive market. Either I grind like a butcher's sharpening wheel, or cough up a pittance for something neat that I'll never, ever, ever get to tough with my own two hands. Just remember, eRepubik is worse. It's not such a conversion loss in the end though, is it? It's not as though the C-Store or Perfect World is run by usurers; I regularily get ripped off by friends when trading resources for board games... I guess we're going to have to live with it. this is a seriously well-developed game after all.
