# 1 Massive decrease in goldspam
03-21-2010, 03:33 PM
Cryptic wins at this. At least in my case both in-game and on the forums. I only hope this is due to Cryptic's efforts and not simply a decision on the part of the gold sellers to abandon this market because they see the game as dead. If it's the former: Thanks, well done.

I think it's at least partly due to the economy being focused away from energy credits. I remember that at launch the spam was saying something like $25 for 100k energy credits and the last one I recall from several days ago was $1 for 100k. I can't imagine the gold sellers can make any profit like that, at least I hope they can't. I also read something about Cryptic putting in some sort of spam catcher. Either way: YAY!

Its because there is no economy in STO, add that with massive subscription drop offs, the spammers cannot afford to scam this game anymore... Its a sad day...

The way the Gold Spammers were lowering their price it is obvious they weren't getting the business they thought they would. Whether that is because there weren't enough people buying it or they realized that "gold" is nearly useless in this game is up to much debate... As long as they're gone let's just be thankful.

Gold sellers. The #1 reason *someone* will eventually find a way to distribute molotov cocktails over the internet.

I mentioned this post to an IRL friend who responded: "I hit RA on 2 toons during the first month... wtf would anyone need money for in THAT game?!?"

I guess there is that.
