  1. First of all, thank you for this constructive reply. It is based on arguments and this is sometimes refreshing. I want to say to this that wearing a logo is a choice that comes with buying the product, which you agree to before you buy it. The gacha system makes you end up with products you don't need, for which you have paid, and turns you into a vendor or when you don't want that hassle, into a sucker because you have paid more for the goods you required. Someone already pointed out that there is completely no transparency on this. Who knows if the system is rigged to have a higher c
  2. Certainly, but there is also thing called public responsibility. We don't always have to think about ourselves. Only the price is agreed upon, not the item! Because the item is random to eternity and you might never get what you want. You can get the same item 10 times and still not get the exact color you want. This constitutes the nature of gambling, not a sound commercial transaction. I mentioned that whether it is likely to happen is not the issue. It is the to show the nature of the unfair principle of gacha. I agree with that. But I wouldn't have an issue with gac
  3. I would also like to add that in a normal situation a vendor should put effort in selling their wares. In the case with gachas, the consumer is set up with items he don't need from the vendor, which turns him into a vendor as well, doing the work for the vendor. After you bought something, in a normal situation it is your choice whether you want to advertise for the company by means of mouth-to-mouth or otherwise. In the gacha situation you are forced to advertise for the company you bought from. A normal company has normal exposure. A gacha situation forces the consumer to do the exposure fo
  4. I'm glad to hear that. But sadly there are those who do. Someone with an addictive personality can spend 10K on a gacha, do it the next day again and so on. Do we really need that? Who or what is benefited by that? We can say that those people have to smarten up, or we can try to protect them.
  5. Ok I've read everyone's comments and I have a few things to mention before I'm ready to move on. People say often that you have a choice not to play. But sometimes you encounter something that is perfect, beyond your dreams. This can happen with clothes yes, but also with a car, a piece of furniture, anything. You choose not to play unless you meet something that you really want. That is the power of gacha. Of all the items to be sold as such there is always someone who got to got that item because it is not featured anywhere else. Then there is the argument that you will get somethi
  6. If that's the case I'd be happy with that. Also videogames are indeed well known for dragging customers into paying more and more. This is a form of aggressive capitalism that I'm really unhappy about and on Steam the complaints about it go through the roof.
  7. No, that was not the outfit I wanted. I posted a picture of another one because the outfit I wanted looked very skimpy
  8. I find it really strange that people would take the side of the vendors, and not the customers. But that is probably something that creeped in from RL into SL.
  9. Should you or the vendor decide what I want or need, or should the customer?
  10. But if it's not available on the MP and you really NEED that item then you are still forced to play!
  11. Yeah I wish that the Lindens would revise this. See if they can get an official point of view on this.
  12. But sometimes there is something that you really want. If it's only available through gatcha you're kinda forced to play it.
  13. My girlfriend did 15 attempts and we settled for the blue and winterpink outfits from Horntail. That's 2 outfits for 1125L which is not bad, however... we wanted the full pink one, not the winterpink. So we spend 1125L and still didn't get the outfit we wanted and now we have to quit because it can take ages before you get only the pink one, a 2x (1out of 24) chance. Can't we do something about this? I still see it as scamming customers.
  14. Thank you for your replies. Still I am against this, only if its optional I have no problem with it.
  15. Well I clearly don't know anything about this. If it's possible to resell the items you don't want then it is not that bad, however... how can you resell items when they are No Copy? Where can we go for these second hand markets? And can you get the same item twice? I believe it is vital to know that.
