Read a few lines and immediately though she was stupid Sad This is why I just don't play grind based MMORPGs anymore, let the muppets who like it waste their lives, meanwhile I'll play fun games like Minecraft Cheesy.

p.s. As John Mcafee wisely said, you can't value virtual items like that, they're only worth as much as people will pay for.

The woman claimed that she accidentally tried to enchant the sword, adding that she would never actively try to enchant the item. Doing so, she claimed, would risk its destruction. Instead, she was trying to enchant a cheaper item, but instead enchanted Jin Myung Hwang's Conduct Sword.

After NCsoft refused to restore the item, she filed suit.

It's very common in pay-to-win games (look at Maplestory & other Nexon games)

The items are usually very rare, and very OP, usually because they were created through hacking.

It's not just that, game developers deliberately code these kind of items and perks in because they know there are gamers out there who are that pathetic they will devote their whole lives to it, it's really sad actually, EVE Online is another great example of RPG mechanics being taken to a stupid extreme. Grindy mechanics aren't bad by themselves but when you have game developers literally just copy and pasting entire databases and re-naming them or adding 00000's to everything that's when it needs to stop, I actually find it fun on some games like Black and White 1 and Fallout 3 but that's because it's short and I can do it in less than a day.

It's just a cheap and pathetic way to get gamers hooked and what's sad is it's actually working because there are people out there that don't know better games anymore, fyi they aren't created through hacking, they're deliberately flawed game mechanics.

created though hacking.. what?
I don't know about other pay2win games, but Maplestory was (is?) completely controlled by hackers. There were exploits which would let you duplicate items, apply infinite upgrades, hack stats etc. I remember they had these scroll things that would enhance the stats by a bit (with a very low % chance), but there was a chance it would destroy the item.

The hackers would dupe weapons, and scrolls, then apply scrolls onto weapons, until they were successful. Then they'd do the same thing all over, with the stronger weapons, until they ended up with a very OP, gamebreaking weapon, which they would dupe, and sell.

Now, there were certain hacked weapons which were not duped extensively. These would be a lot more expensive, because they had higher stats than other hacked weapons, or they were for classes which didn't have any other hacked weapons.

Well hold on right there, you can convert second life money into bitcoins, you can't do that with most other games.

but the main point is "who the fuck pays 30k fiat for a digital item thats nothing more than a drawing attached to some ingame stats?!"
The same jackasses that Buy gold

Think it's pretty cool the older generation playing games....but, yeah she had to learn to move on with the times and sell it and start playing a new game.

This is a game from 1998.
As such, the fact that something from it can be so valuable is...
Impressive, in fact.
